UFO Detector Based on Magnetometer Triggered

On Halloween a few hours before the UFO report on your site a UFO detector based on a magnetometer on my desk activated. I was not home at the time, so my secretary felt morally felt obligated to go outside and look around. She said she felt like an idiot staring up in the air as was seen by some neighbors who asked "what are you looking at" and she answered .. have no idea and felt stupid and went back inside.

She said she did not see a darn thing and told me it had been a false alarm. I looked over the next few days at your website to see if anyone saw anything to no avail. This unit has only activated twice in a few years so pondered what was up --I did see other UFO reports on your site that day and kinda finally just left it to an unknown. I just saw today that someone made a UFO report at the same point and almost laid an egg... you will also note i made this same report of the same craft described at the same location also being observed in January 2001 and was chased by aircraft away here in Arden near the Asheville airport. Now i am left believing the UFO detector DID pick up a real magnetic disturbance made by the UFO that someone else saw. THIS IS COOL!
