Well duh. If you're the world's biggest skeptic, all things you see in the sky are unidentified flying objects until you see detailed flight records.

It's when you start calling the blinking lights aliens that the problems occur.

What does the "U" in UFO stand for again?
 
2013-01-03 12:45:49 PM
These UFOs must be pretty common. One of our neighbours spotted one in Fairfield County, CT, shortly after midnight on Jan 1st.
He reported it to the local paper. I guess he didn't think that anyone might be launching paper lanterns on New Year's Eve.
Eeejit!

Just because it's "unidentified" doesn't necessarily mean "of extraterrestrial or supernatural origin". Could be military, meteorological, geomagnetic, or any other mundane object/phenomenon. Doesn't mean it isn't worth trying to figure out what it is, though.

lohphat: What does the "U" in UFO stand for again?


Exactly. Big pet peeve of mine: "UFO" does not mean alien spacecraft!!! If you don't know what it is, that MAKES it a UFO.

A father and son have filmed what they believe is a UFO in the sky above Cardwell in Queensland, north east Australia.

Wait... If they've identified it as a UFO, does that mean it's not one?

Ummm, yes they do. Two lanterns often behave exactly like that, and seem to pivot around each other, because they're caught in separate air currents. You can see this every single night in the hippier part of London.

Me too, except for the last few seconds... weird direction change that would have looked more random if it was caused by a wind gust.

I saw a UFO once when I was a kid. My mom and I were in one car following my dad and brother in another. It was a clear bright fall day and we were travelling on a straight road in rural PA with fields on either side. I remember seeing a green ball of light move from about 11 o'clock (directionally downward to about 2 o'clock, where it appeared to go behind a treeline a mile or so away.

There was no telling how far away it was or how fast it was moving as it seemed to just be light without any real definition, but it all happened in maybe 15-20 seconds or so. My mom remembers it being yellow, and also there being more than one. Totally silent, as far as we could tell from our moving vehicle. Also my brother and dad saw something along the same lines, as we learned afterward when we finally stopped.

At the time, I begged and begged for my mom to stop and let me just run over really quick to see if I could see where it "landed", but she refused. I can't say I blame her now, of course, but I always wonder what the hell that was. I've never seen anything like it before or since. But when I finally got my driver's license I spent a few late night hours laying in that field, staring up. Good times.

Bullhonkey. How did he make it out his door to see the sky, let alone a UFO?
 
2013-01-03 01:06:17 PM
I'm certainly not saying those were flying saucers, but I saw something very similar New Year's Eve in Southern Ontario.

Two big red lights moving across the sky in formation (West to East), followed shortly after by two more travelling the same path.

I just assumed it was some military jets celebrating the New Year by lighting up some bright lights.

Well, have to disagree, I actually have a picture of some that were launched about a mile from my house, and from my viewpoint they formed a straight line almost perfectly evenly spaced for about 10 minutes.

Nothing more annoying than traveling 16.73 light years from Altair and crashing in the last .00000000000000000001% of the distance. So they need lights.

Why is it that something flying you can't identify, suddenly becomes an alien?

People are morans.

Perspective can be weird at night with almost no frame of reference... I thought the same thing though.

Big deal. I've seen lots of UFOs.

Couple weeks back, I seen one that I later found out to be the ISS, which was awesome.

My son launched several of these at his wedding. Yes, they travel in formation, apart from minor differences caused by air currents. The lights in the video looked exactly like fire ballons.

You call that a "skeptic"?

A TRUE skeptic would continue to deny, deny, deny - even while being repeatedly ass raped by a gang of green, spiny-dicked aliens.

They have streetlamps in Australia?????

Next thing you'll be telling us they speak English.

The lights run the craft.

She said she could not say what the lights were but believed they were extra-terrestrials.

I see evidence of irrational thought patterns and poor education.

Nope, that's just what is said by people who refuse to accept the obvious truth that this is video evidence of alien spacecraft.

Wouldn't the crash always come in at roughly the last .00000000000000000001% of the distance, regardless of the length of the trip?
