How many people believe in the Aurora?

For those who don't know, the Aurora is said to be a top secret US Government project which isinvolved in the creation of a high-altitude pane that can hit mach 6. Tyere haven't been many sightings of the elusive plane but those who claim to have seen it all say the same thing: "It's a black triangular plane and, as it is flying by, up to six sonic booms can be heard".

The Aurora legend started in March 1990, when Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine broke the news that the term "Aurora" had been inadvertently included in the 1985 U.S. budget, as an allocation of $455 million for "black aircraft production" in FY 1987.[5] According to Aviation Week, Project Aurora referred to a group of exotic aircraft, and not to one particular airframe. Funding of the project allegedly reached $2.3 billion in fiscal 1987, according to a 1986 procurement document obtained by Aviation Week. In the 1994 book Skunk Works, Ben Rich, the former head of Lockheed's Skunk Works division, wrote that the Aurora was the budgetary code name for the stealth bomber fly-off that resulted in the B-2 Spirit.[6]

I do like B-2's, though.
