Blip.001: One Twenty-Two Point Five
This is a Blip, as in a blip on a radar screen—that little something that just might be interesting enough to warrant a closer look.
For the inaugural Blip, I’d like to share one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies: Close Encounters of the Third Kind. For those of you who have never seen it, the movie opens with a team of scientists finding a squadron of military airplanes in the middle of the Sonoran desert in Mexico that were reported missing in 1945. In this scene, which follows the scene in the desert, we get a peek at what’s to come when an air traffic controller asks, “Do you want to report a UFO?” Vilmos Zsigmondy’s brilliant cinematography earned him the Oscar for his work on the film.
