Excerpts From Chapter Five Page 71: According to F. F. Silcock (author of a book about  the Min Min light of Australia) flying lights can be  closer than they seem. If that were true with the  sighting by DU, it would explain how the creature  flew so fast while gliding: It was not really flying so  fast. Regardless, a fast glide (or apparent fast glide)  differs from the wandering flutter of a hunting owl,  and the on-off cycle differs from the steady glow of  a Min Min owl. It is strange.  Page 72: In August of 2008, I received another email from  the professor: “During the short expedition I led  with the O’Donnells, mid-July, we saw three hours of  bioluminescent ‘shooting stars.’ The last hour was  the most interesting in that there were two light  blasts about 200 ft. apart, about 50-100 ft., above  the river. The blasts were followed by screeches  from about a dozen or so agitated nighthawks in the  general area. I think the Rhamphorhynchoids, if that  is what they were, were feeding on the nighthawks  as the nighthawks were feeding on the flying  insects. Bats were also common, but they were fast,  made sharp turns, and were relatively small.”  Copyright 2010 Jonathan D. Whitcomb Peek Inside Cryptozoology Book American Ghost Lights
