UFO Memories

I got a couple of comments on the blog today that made my day!

The first comment was a gem...

A few months back I wrote about the first interview I had done for my book about the career of Dr. J. Allen Hynek. I interviewed a gentleman named Bill Powell, who had worked with Dr. Hynek at Northwestern University for many years, and had shared many UFO adventures with Hynek along the way. Well, I made it pretty obvious in my post that I had enjoyed the interview immensely, and that a lot of Bill's stories would make it into my book.

So I was delighted to find this comment pop on my phone today:

I just happened to stumble on your article (long story), and enjoyed it immensely! You see, Bill Powers is my dad! And he does have a lot of cool stories about those good old days at Northwestern. I remember as a kid, running around the observatories (Dearborn, and the Lindheimer Astrophysical Center, since torn down). I spent many a night staring at the stars, Dad's arm over my shoulder pointing out this one and that... Thank you for such a wonderful article! 
Best,
Barb Powers 


I was having a pretty good day already, but this letter put it over the top. And now I need to interview her, too!

Dr. Hynek, pondering what a wonderful time I will have writing a book about him someday.
I will write about comment #2 tomorrow. You didn't think I was going to waste an opportunity to get the maximum mileage out of this, did you?
