Dear peter,
I remember talking to you the night that I reported this, you had just been on Coast to Coast I think a night or two before. This is the first time I've checked out your website and I'd like to thank you for the wonderful job you are doing here. Unfortunately I noticed an error. the report is copied below:

If you notice, it says that the event occurred on 2-26-97 and was reported on 1-2-97, now if that were true it would be almost as fantastic as what I saw!! :)
In actually the event itself occured on 1-1-97. Please check your records and make the appropriate changes. Thanks again for all your work.

If you need verification of my identity just reply my e-mail and I will be happy to provide any info you need.

Thank you,
