Dear sirs,On Feb.1-03 I turned on the news, (CNN), at 8:15A.M.. Miles O'Brien was on with breaking news about the shuttle Columbia breaking up over the Dallas,TX area. This was real sad news.Between 9:00A.M.- 10:00A.M. CNN showed earlier footage from Albuquerque,NM. This footage was played for only close to perhaps 30 seconds. This is what I saw.The sky was still dark. There was a long thin cloud near the top left of the T.V. screen that angled slightly upward and 2/3rds across to near the top of the screen. As the shuttle crossed over this cloud from the top 1/3rd of the screen,at a slight downward and right angle to about the center of the screen,a dark rod shaped object shot across the screen from the bottom center,to the top right corner in a fraction of a second. Then a crow flew across the bottom of the screen from the right side to the left.This footage aired only 3 more times that Saturday. At 12:15 P.M.,3:15P.M.,and 6:15P.M.Thank you, Sincerely,((name and address deleted))Knoxville, Iowa 50138
