The cameras get better and more widely distributed. The photographs get fewer and blurrier.

Aliens are stopping our watches and our auto-foucs devices.

High quality digital cameras have been ubiquitous for a decade. That leads to only one logical conclusion - the Loch Ness monster died around 2006.

I do enjoy the paradoxical statement of "I know what that Unidentified Flying Object is"

on the left - a specialty balloon
on the right - a bi-plane

both may easily be mistaken for street lights, certainly.

A UFO can be turned into an IFO with just a few words.

Pretty sure you can't fly a biplane anywhere near the Capitol.  In and out of the College Park airport would be hard enough, forget National.

The Mall, especially near the Washington Monument is a prime kite flying location.  The only surprise is that there is only one kite in the sky in that picture.  Must be a cold weekday.

Aliens would have to be more intelligent, I don't get that vibe with Verizon reps.

I agree in principle....but....  here's my issue with that sort of statement from a practical point of view with the 'ubiquitous phone cam' argument.

Let's say some amazing event will appear for 10 seconds in front of you.

Sequence:
'Holy crap! Amazing event!' - 2 seconds of amazement / absorption
Find, grab phone - 1 second
Try to Unlock phone 3 times without screwing up the password: 5 seconds
Open Phone App - 1 second
Snap a quick photo while your hand is in motion waving the phone around before amazing thing disappears: 1 second.
Realize you had it on "selfie" mode and need to switch it over: 1 second
Realize the auto-focus hadn't adjusted yet and take a second photo: 1 second, but the thing is going / going / gone and the auto-focus hasn't caught up again.

The aliens are here to fix the rip in the fabric of the space-time continuum. What you saw was one of the dimensional time fabric spinners appear and reappear. It's only a temporary patch, so anomalies may occur.

One of those pics looks like helium balloon letters spelling out 2018.

I was a scientist before I became a bad actor.   I know what that number is...   It's Pi.

people are foolish. a phone is a phone. one can buy an incredible camera off eBay used dirt cheap, take lovely photos.

No, it can't be a streetlight. It is too high up.

NOTHING  hovers in DC airspace a few miles from the Pentagon that escapes the notice of authorities.

And the other one is some kind of blurry dot.  Objects identified.
