It's been two weeks since Fuller killed himself. Allen hasn't been sleeping and has been increasingly agitated, continually snapping at Mimi in not telling her anything about Blue Book including what happened to Fuller, in his guilt over what part he may have played in Fuller's death, that guilt which is only exacerbated by having watched him not flinch at all while he burned. The next reported sighting of something strange in the skies takes Allen and Quinn to White Forest Missile Testing Range in Nevada. Something inexplicable had set the countdown to a missile launch which would have killed all personnel on the range, and just as sudden the countdown stopped just seconds before the launch was to occur, followed by what were coined green fireballs shooting across the sky. Officially Allen wants to explain the green fireballs away as pure meteors, hiding his true beliefs. Allen has gained approval to set-up a motion sensor camera at the range in hopes of filming the green fireballs ... Written by Huggo

Dr. J. Allen Hynek: Green is a very interesting color in astronomy. Our eyes are more sensitive to green than any other color. That's why it's so often visible in the night sky.

Dr. Hynak is a fool. Nickel burns white w a slight blue tint, copper burns green. So his entire theory is debunked as soon as he says it. Common writers do your research.
