First there was the oddly shaped pie plate UFO then the streetlight UFO now the
fluffy round cloud snapped from above UFO pic. I want to believe.

I am not an aeronautical engineer, but wouldn't a rounded saucer-like shape be the 'best' design for a craft meant for high speeds and complex maneuvers?

Kind of irrelevant because those sort of jerky, high speed maneuvers would probably kill any biological piloting it. So, robot aliens?

I'd have thought we were past the weather balloon stage myself. It seems like pretty outdated technology.

I checked one of the links below subby's article. They apparently found a "2001 style" monolith on Mars a few days ago too.

Well to some degree yes. If your control is all based on thrust, it could work. There could be some stability issues.

Lensatic cloud. It wasnt moving, plane was.

ROFL.

Yeah
CGI, it's a hell of a thing...
 
2012-04-09 02:56:01 AM  
Round is the best shape because it allows you to maintain artificial gravity by rotation. The aliens are obviously ant sized creatures with proportionally giant heads and brains.

I'm not going to worry about UFOs until they take some pictures much closer than a blip in the distance.

Hey now, we didn't go full meme on you with it, so calm down.

I was saying it was lens flare from a streetlight.

FFS, it's bad CGI is what it is.

Why a disc and not a sphere, then? A sphere would have even better in terms of changes in direction not pulling bits off.

I mean, I'd assume aliens would be wanting to maneuver in 3 dimensions, what with being willing to spend centuries in free fall to get here and all.

Hey Farva, what's that one band you like to listen to all the time? They sang that song "Point/Counterpoint"?

NobleHam: Water droplet on plane window.


This has my vote.

The video was supposedly from Seoul, S. Korea, but they seem to be speaking Spanish? I can't find any part of Seoul that looks like that through Google sat view (using the two bridges over the river as reference). Area looks odd (flood/tsunami damage?) and the camera guy seems more focused on the landscape than the whatever crossing the view.

I didn't watch the video but the picture makes it look like a cloud or a parachute. Or a marshmallow.

Water drop or chip in the window.

Until and unless they come for me in my sleep, in which case I was wrong.

I think you're right. It clearly looks like a water droplet on the window to me.

I don't think that is Spanish.....Maybe Tagolog? I speak Spanish and can't understand exactly what they are saying....The two languages share some words.....

I think its really easy to disprove this video much harder to explain it.
Its very easy to say CGI or whatever.
Saying its not real without proof of editing is like saying its real because there is a video...
... oh there is a video...
