  • Animation Shows Mass of Returns Near Crawford, Texas (President Bush Ranch Location)
    • These Returns Are Moving SE About 30 MPH
    • This Movement is Consistent With Winds. This Means That Object "Might" Be Drifting With Wind

    • These Returns Were Moving at Nearly Right Angles to The Wind
      • This Means That the Returns Were Not Birds, Insects, or Atmospheric Pollutants
