People are still reporting them? In the age of digital cameras, I want to see pics or it didn't happen!

Nothing to see here. Sounds like reasonable use of taxpayer money (for a change)

allow me to call SHENANIGANS first... its written by the Daily Star = fiction

Yawn. Call me when they start burning the reporters tied to the stake in the town square.

Until someone posts a high definition, in focus, daylight video of an alien spacecraft, I will continue to call BS on them.

What you saw was light from Venus reflected off of swamp gas.

And why won't Glenn Beck refute the claims that he was Jack the Ripper and that is still murdering prostitutes? Seems pretty suspicious to me.

You can't prove with absolute certainty that the photos aren't real, therefore UFO's are real aliens from another world.

It's only a matter of time now...

...until the announcement is made.

The majority of you will eat your words as soon as you know the truth of the matter.

I hereby object to this policy!

The public has the right to know about street lights. It's part of our heritage.

UFO's are real. All you have to do to prove it is say

"Hey, I don't know what that flying thing is. Therefore, it's an Unidentified Flying Object."

/oh, and aliens are statistically real.

I hope all the doubters here get their chance to see one themselves, without a camera, or with their farking cell phone camera or digital camera or any other camera that isn't capable of accurately representing what they saw.
Then, I know they will enjoy reading comments like theirs as much as I do.

That said, it's best not to believe in anything you don't know to be true-
healthy, even.

Your snark is absolutely hilarious for me to read.

Ah. So you're one of the streetlighers, then? Guess what -- it's not that people only have their cell camera. It's that EVERYONE who has seen one has ONLY EVER EVER had a crappy camera, or has blurred the picture, or it turns out to be a streetlight, or a weather balloon. As people above have noted, all I need is ONE well-lit, well exposed picture that passes all tests for falsification. I assume that you will classify this as "snark", but extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.

I've seen tiny small-moving lights in the night sky once or twice, and they don't blink like airplanes or helicopters do. I guess they're either satellites or space junk.

The first time I saw a satellite pass over the sky (Mir, I think) I was amazed at how, well, freakin' fast it moved. If I hadn't known in advance that it was a satellite I might have been inclined to say it was something "unexplainable".

I've seen weird lights in the sky before. Just because I didn't know what they were doesn't make them of extraterrestrial origin. I'll never rule anything out, but need a non-blurry pic for proof.

/maybe Bigfoot is blurry
//that makes him scarier

What kind did you see?

I saw the triangular variety. Similar to the Phoenix Lights...Scared the shiat out of me.

I happened to see a white sphere flying through the clouds while I was laying out on a deck stretching my back. Just happened to see it and then watched it for 2 minutes at least until I lost in the clouds. No noise at all. It looked just like orbs in the videos from the space shuttle. Google video sts80 for an example.

OMG I'm totally crazy!!

So rather than waste time and resources investigating anything they're just gonna make up their own conclusions and destroy all the evidence so they don't have to prove anything to anyone.

That idea's already been done before... Looks like Climate researchers really are leading the way into 21st century science.

Yeah, if you don't hold the belief that we presently understand everything about our reality you're insane by a lot of farkers standards.

/because they know everything beyond a shadow of a doubt
 
2010-02-28 05:33:22 PM  
the science is settled. extra-terrestrial intelligence doesn't exist because no one has a nice clear picture of a space ship.

i used to write commercial truck insurance. i know there's no such thing, because none of my insured's ever hit one.

No one is saying that extra terrestrials don't exists. They are just saying that there is no evidence of it. Also, seeing lights in the sky is one thing but when you jump to the conclusion that the lights are an extra terrestrial space craft that's when you begin to look crazy.

Why was the #1 comment in this thread not a streetlight?
WHY WAS THE #1 COMMENT IN THIS THREAD NOT A STREETLIGHT!?!

It's a conspiracy I tells ya. The #1 comment has probably been burned. Just like our freedom to type in the word boobies.

Drew is in on it. He is probably "They" disguised as a beer swigging internet god.

Good decision! The government should not be catering to the fantasies of a bunch of nutters.
 
2010-03-01 02:54:36 PM  
So.. let folks make reports to a non-government agency, don't take the report and burn it.

There have been flying objects that sometimes defy the viewer's knowledge of experimental crafts and/or various other phenomena that perhaps the government is aware of, but not ready to share the information on.

I don't agree that ALL such things represent aliens.

I'm inclined to think that if aliens wanted to be hidden, you wouldn't see them, and if they DIDN'T want to be hidden, we'd have all seen them by now.

Not to mention they'd have been shot down in America or Iraq or something.. someone, somewhere would have bagged one by now.. intergalactic relations be damned.
