For f*ck's sake those are all pretty obvious:

Streetlight, streetlight, streetlight, weather balloon, streetlight, alien mothership, streetlight, streetlight.

Sometimes, when comets pass into the Earth's atmosphere, their bright, fiery tails make them an easy mark for UFO enthusiasts.

What a crappy list, 1 actual UFO, that has been possibly explained, the rest are "culprits", except for a natural landmark on Mars, which breaks the 'F' part of 'UFO'. Surprised this isn't a shiatty-ass livescience list.

remember that one time? when that comet entered our atmosphere? ...it was that time a bunch of people died horribly.

People are going to believe whatever they want to believe and blindly accept evidence to support their claim while dismissing what does not support their thought process. Look at religion and Apple fanboys.

The vmajority of them have been pretty well identified, so that leaves out the "U" as well. So basically, we're left with pictures of objects.

Like all UFO pics, these are garbage. It takes a special kind of person to think that every speck of dust, every reflection, every slightly odd thing that they don't immediately understand is an alien space ship.

Yeah, I meant to mention the 'U' part, but saw something shiny across the room and forgot.

That's all nice and all but I'd still like at least a plausibly believable explanation for that sky spiral they saw in Norway a few years back:

blogs.discovermagazine.com

Apparently the official explanation/excuse is that it's an out of control rocket that was spewing something. I'm not a rocket surgeon but if that was a test ICBM, the Russians make their shiat fail gracefully and symmetrically.

That and the rash of UFO stuff coming out of China. They've even had a major regional airport shut down due to midair crash concerns...and then there was this one that was never really explained either.

I'd much rather be told "it's none of your business" than to be fed a line of crap.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought that was a terrible list. I think MNN just lost its last shred of respect from me.

I've gotta say that face-mountain on Mars always gets me, though. People always say, "the latest pictures of it totally debunk it," but have they looked at the latest pictures? I mean, look at that thing! It's got parallel sides and nearly perfectly symmetrical features! That's way better than I first expected to find when I first saw it. Maybe it's not a face, but it sure looks artificial. Any Fark geologists have anything to say on the matter?

Except that in space, a symmetrical spiral is exactly what you get when a rotating object expels gas asymmetrically, whether it's an out-of-control rocket or a binary star such as LL Pegasi:

or WR 104:

No crap, just science.

They are. Neat, and potentially lethal.

Thing is, these only look symmetrical when viewed along the object's axis of rotation. In the rocket image, the blue streak is the rocket's trajectory before it went kablooey, and it was moving almost directly away from the camera. In the case of WR 104, the primary star is thought to be a prime supernova candidate, possibly unleashing a gamma-ray burst. If Earth were close enough to the axis of rotation, we'd get a direct hit from a GRB...not a good thing. Fortunately, it looks like we're not quite in the direct line of fire, but still close enough to see the spiral pattern.
