'UFO sighting brings town to a standstill...'

'A crowd of 100 stunned stargazers brought a town centre to a standstill when five mysterious UFOs were spotted hovering in the sky.

Drinkers spilled out of pubs, motorists stopped to gawp and camera phones were aimed upwards as the five orbs, in a seeming formation, hovered above Stratford-Upon-Avon for half an hour.'

Brilliant. Thats such a massive sighting. That there are that many witnesses bodes well.

In the article, I found it rather curious that Hillary Potter from The British Earth Aerial Mystery Society (BEAMS. Harry & Hillary? What a timely name she has...

Yes; it can't have been an easy last decade for anyone with the surname Potter (Blackadder, or Bean) I feel.

Albion's UFO flap is far from over yet then!

P.S I like your new flash logo (at your blog.) Would you mind giving me a few tips on how you did it?

Eyes on the skies then...

Thanks, I'm rather keen on it myself for the time being. Kentroversy actually whipped up my new logo for me. I interviewed with him last Friday night, and a few days later he asked me if he could make something up. I gave him suggestions and he sent it to me "all pretty like".

You should get the Red Ice guys to send you what they mocked up for your podcast, and use that for a while. Good stuff

from wikipedia:

The science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke was based with his RAF unit at Stratford-upon-Avon during the 1940s. He worked as an officer on early radar and experimental trails of Ground Controlled Approach radar. His novel Glide Path was based on the radar work. During this time he also wrote and published the landmark 1945 technical paper "Extra-terrestrial Relays", in which he established the principles of satellite communication using satellites in geostationary orbits. Clarke later wrote the short story 'The Curse', which takes place in a post-apocalyptic Stratford-upon-Avon.
