I would like to comment on The Sage's conclusions on the small red
orb nicknamed, "Bubba".
First of all, my name is Mike Fortson. I live in
Az., which is app 25 miles east/southeast of downtown
Phoenix. I have to this date 7 Bubba videos, that I shot,
beginning on October 12, 2000 thru the last sighting on
January 4, 2001.
Bubba is not a plane. Bubba is not a red flying saucer.
Bubba is a ufo. Bubba is an unknown object. Period.
Planes do not hover over one position for 8-10 minutes at a
time. Planes make noise. The only part of Bubba that
resembles a plane would be Bubba's color. It is almost
identical to the starboard light on aircraft. That's it.
Bubba, to me, is a red light without structure.
If you were to have a Bubba sighting, as we have, and
watched it rise to 10,000-15,000' and then rapidly descend
straight down (without crashing), you would immediatly
accept the fact that planes cannot and would not do this.
Sage, in order to be on Tom King's "hotlist", you must give
someone your phone number and hopefully a name so you can be
speed dialed when a sighting occurs. How could you possibly
expect him to e-mail you during a sighting? If you want on
the list, give him your phone number. What's the big deal?
No one is that "special".
I think if you were to see this object, you would change
your opinion. It's too bad we didn't get to speak at the
last MUFON meeting. I would have convienced you differently.
One thing that everyone seems to miss about Bubba is that
"it" almost always interferes with east valley Sky Harbor
commercial aircraft. There are videos and pictures of this.
So, IMHO, if Bubba is human controlled, then would there not
be severe FAA air violations in a controlled air space? We
(my wife and I) have seen and videotaped Bubba go right up
to incoming commercial planes. To me, this is the most
intriguing part of the Bubba sightings. And by far the most
To this date, Bubba has been claimed to be a plane, a
stealth helicopter, a TRW test balloon, and a secret
unmanned military probe. These are opinions without a shred
of proof. Only debunking mode tactics to make serious
skywatchers look foolish.
