Regarding the 10/7/07 Poplarville, MS sighting reported previously BRIGHT LIGHT IN THE SKY ((NUFORC Note: Probably a star, perhaps Sirius, we believe. PD))....

Sirius has not risen at 1:15 a.m. And if the reporter is off by an hour or two, Sirius would be in the eastern sky, not western as reported. Mars is also particularly interesting but also in the eastern sky at that time. The three prominent stars of the Summer Triangle are low in the western sky at that time, but my opinion is that they are not bright enough to create such an impression unless there were some unusual atmospheric conditions.

((NUFORC Note: Our error!! I agree with the assessment of the source of this statement, who elects to remain totally anonymous. I probably have made this same error in a number of cases! Embarrassing!! I apologize to those whose reports I have mislabeled in this fashion, and I will attempt to correct my errors, when I have time to re-read the reports. PD))
