I have never seen a UFO, but I have seen an alien from another world.
Folks around here call him Donald Trump

rokytnji - Happy Trails, Bro. Sorry to see you go. Maybe read back and see that I never tried to tell you what you saw since I have not a clue. I wasn't there. I only posted some of the limitations on the odds that it was any one thing over another. I'd hoped by asking questions you would come to your own conclusion and not feel at all "dismissed".

No, but ball lightning does!

You know, I had never heard of "ball lighting" before. Here's the wiki page for it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_lightning

While I think probably would account for *some* UFO's (I would suggest not a hell of a lot, though), it doesn't sound like what colorpurple21859 was describing.

Thanks for sharing that, Hazel!

Have you ever seen that in-person?

No. I mentioned my two UFO sightings earlier in this thread. I have ideas about what both of them might have been, but certainly neither was ball lightning.

Al-Qaeda in Outer Space landed a UFO full of little green terrorists on 9/11. That's what made those skyscrapers fall straight down into neat piles.

It's true because the smart news people on TV say so. LOL

Everybody knows news has a bias, often called a point of view that creeps through even properly objective journalism, requiring a "grain of salt" filter from actual critical thought as well as checking multiple sources, but that is not the same as denigrating all "smart news people" as useless frauds, Since you continue to harp on this in what may possibly be an actual attempt at offering something of any value whatsoever, could you please link exactly what your source is? What news organization reported little green Al Qaedas on the Moon?

I was just recording a movie (UN-related to UFO's) and you's would never guess what I'm watching right now; Conspiracy - Alien Cover-up

And it's about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rendle...orest_incident

Apparently one reason for the UK's UFO taskforce was they were worried about the Soviets being behind the UFO sightings, which would make a lot of sense, given those times. They concluded that 5% of UFO's they investigated were of unknown origin.

With 15% not enough data to conclude what the sight actually even could have been.

I'm not making this up (have a look at the guide for Channel 9 Adelaide, South Australia - under Conspiracy). How ironic!

A 5 year old could make up better story than that, take your rubbish elsewhere, you fool!

I notice you quote me as jerking the dog's chain. It was a flippant remark not intended for anyone.
I don't get involved too much here unless I can give some worthwhile advice but every so often I can't resist joining in.
No real offence intended.

I haven't actually read the whole thread so I should have realised a lot of people actually believe all this.

Yes but it was most likely a satellite orbiting the earth.
