The nonprofit Mutual Unidentified Flying Object Network held a packed public town hall on May 11 on Capri, attracting residents and others who have seen strange objects in the sky.
Now a private space-flight group wants to be involved, too.
Gary Hernandez, field investigator with Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies, is interested in follow-up studies on the Capri UFO reports.
Bigelow Aerospace, which has announced plans to someday enter the private space-flight industry, has expertise in alternative methods of propulsion.
“We have a highly sophisticated system of investigative tools that can help lend insight into strange phenomena such as those seen by the residents in your area,” Hernandez said in a phone conversation on May 13.
“I was down in your area several years ago investigating similar sightings, and would very much like to return and speak with eyewitnesses there now,” Hernandez said.
“I’ll do my best to objectively research and investigate each occurrence and gather as much supporting information to come to a potential conclusion,” Hernandez wrote in an e-mail on May 13.
Hernandez said he did not agree with MUFON’s conclusion that the photo captured by the Isles of Capri Fire/Rescue Department’s webcam was likely the moon setting.
And the photo could not have been of the planet Venus, said Hernandez.
“Although the photo was small, there is no way that the dates, time, and weather conditions would support that conclusion,” Hernandez said.
“On the night of March 27, it was raining sideways, the wind was gusting to 51 mph, and the sky was black,” said Hernandez. “Skies were dark as well for the next two nights.”
Hernandez plans to study the photo further and speak with witnesses to gather additional information.
Morgan Beall, state section director with MUFON, presented his conclusions after talking with eyewitnesses of the strange phenomena that appeared on and around the Isles of Capri from March 27 through early May.
