I also have not got a confirmation mail - little nervous over here. Have triple checked spam, promotions, trash etc.

Re: Red Light on Aircraft (???) Before Temple Burn

As we drove to BMan on I-80, we saw a large, a very large, dirigible or blimp hovering over the test grounds/air facility in the Utah west desert at sunset. Genius has pictures of it. Not moving, and capable of moving in the ways the red light thingy did. Would be why I thought dirigible/blimp init...

Re: The Burning Man Experience Movie

Wow, you did a GREAT job with this! It brought me right back to Metropolis... I love the way it is organized, it really captures the mellow transition into BRC and the build-up to the burn, and I love the end... it's so primal!

Loved it!!

I was walking around on the second level of the center spire when I saw a white butterfly flying around. A couple people saw it before it flew away. It was absolutely too perfect. Surely somebody let it go there? Did anybody else see it?

Hi guys, just curious as to whether or not anyone else noticed an aircraft (or something) with a bright red light drifting around before the temple burn. It seemed to be about the same altitude as an aircraft, but it had no other lights and we could not make out a defined shape, we could only see th...
