If you weren't on board for the chat yesterday, you missed an exciting chat that ended in the After Chat room. During the online discussion, one of our
participants, Joasha, was alerted to the fact that a UFO was flying over her town. So she observed the UFO and then reported back to our chat room.
Now that was on the scene reporting.
