For sake of argument, a spacecraft containing intelligent extraterrestrials lands on the White House Lawn or in Hyde Park or Red Square, or some other public viewing area, and the landing is covered by the international news media. What happens next?


The potential lecture and endorsement fees would be "astronomical"

Bullshit. Meteor/ites travel really fast and don't appear as slow moving blobs. They cover the distance from the top of the atmosphere to the ground in about 2 seconds.

Just citing an astronomer.

Another one said it could have been space junk (debris from a satellite).

The thing is that the unidentified flying objects were filmed by the pilots.

I saw Bono on TV last night, and with his thinning hair, ragged demeanour and those creepy wraparound shades he wears, he is starting to look very much like one of the 'greys'.

How come the main stream media never ever discuss Michel Desmarquet's story ?

It's just a guess, but the book he wrote makes him seem like a nut case, so I guess the main stream media isn't discussing him because he isn't marketing himself and his books to main stream audiences.

Weather may explain Mexico UFO stir
Monday, May 17, 2004 Posted: 10:15 AM EDT (1415 GMT)

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) -- A cluster of mysterious objects that surrounded a Mexican Air Force plane, alarming the pilots and sparking a UFO scare, could be a weather phenomenon known as ball lightning, a scientist said on Friday.

The pilots grew nervous during a routine drugs surveillance flight in March when their radar detected strange objects flying nearby and an infrared camera showed 11 blobs of light, invisible to the eye, hovering or darting about their plane.

But nuclear science researcher Julio Herrera said the blobs of light may have been nothing more than ball lightning -- glowing spheres that are little understood

Herrera said electrical discharges in ball lightning could have been attracted to the plane as a conductor.

Bummer (though not unexpected). Another UFO incident bites the dust. I really wish one of these things would be real one day.

It would be interesting wouldn't it. I have always been of the opinion that it is more fun to belive in UFO's than not to. But I do not expect one in my backyard any time soon.

UFO's exist; extraterrestrial spacecraft/flying saucers may not.

A UFO is any unidentified flying object. There are many of these, being seen (and unidentified) every day. They may be clouds, airplanes, the planet Venus, marsh gas, my Uncle Fred, or extraterrestrial spacecraft.

I think it is a statistical certainty that intelligent life is out there other places than Earth. Whether they have visited Earth or not, I can't say, but it would seem technologically impossible to get here unless they are within a few light years of us, in which case we probably would have detected them by now. But, a little over a century ago, most people would have said heavier-than-air flight was impossible. Don't we still say the bumblebee can't fly?

I have no doubt that most flying saucer photos, including the recent Mexican sightings, are either optical illusions or hoaxes.

I think we have to be skeptical of flying saucer and close encounter reports, but keep open the remote possibility.
