UFO's


Hello folks,

I myself have always had a great interest in this subject matter, & have actually seen a couple in my life-time so far. ( Not little green men, or any abduction with anal-probes (like Stoma has received lol), but certainly Unidentified Flying Objects flying in the sky )....The point of this unusual topic / thread is to learn what you may or may not have seen in your time here, & your thoughts on the subject.

This subject can go pear-shaped quite quickly, but I think it's important to discuss this matter in an open & honest manner, & without ridicule or scorn to any members or visitors, that have some input to help us all gain a little understanding on this "swept-under-the-carpet" subject.

Of course there will likely be examples provided of past reports etc, to support ones claims, & this is fine ! But to keep on-topic with personal thoughts & experiences, please don't start a fight or war based on past reports or claims, but reveal only your own perceptions.

Why did I start this thread ?...Great question ! Believe it or not, "enenews" has just posted an interesting article with regards to UFO's, & their persistent appearances around Nuclear facilities, that records date back to the mid-1940's of sightings, that continue to the present day....Yes...

My thoughts here are that with all the calculated pollution that's been released from every Nuclear disaster, ( not the least Fukushima Daiichi ), that we should have disappeared from existence a long time ago, & that we're possibly being helped-out by these "caring" visitors, & that's why we're still here !

Vote !!! And post your thoughts !!! And check-out "enenews" for your own interest into the current observations & Government responses...It seems the world is changing, hopefully for the better !

Cheers,

Rastus

I voted yes they are real, because I'm quite sure that flying objects have existed that we have been unable to identify. Does that mean that I believe they are alien flying saucers - probably not.

We have been sending radio waves in to space for about 100 years, and we have yet to receive back any that would indicate intelligent life- at least within our corner of the galaxy. But with as vast as just our galaxy is, 100 years isn't nearly long enough for a meaningful result. And when you consider the fact that the Milky Way Galaxy is itself larger than our brains can comprehend, it is still only 1 galaxy, and there are more galaxies in the universe than there are grains of sand on Earth.

Is there life elsewhere in the universe? Most likely albiet extremely rare... Will we ever make contact? Nope.

I say this because the Universe is expanding outward in every direction, which means the distance between galaxies is growing and doing so at an increasing rate of speed that will eventually reach near the speed of light. In fact, when we look at the stars in the night sky, we are actually looking back in time at the galaxy as it was millions of years ago. This is because visible changes to the galaxy are also limited to the speed of light, which over such distances is relatively slow.

Whereas the maximum speed we will ever even dream of traveling is near the speed of light, we will never be able to make any progress in closing the gap between galaxies, which means we are left to searching for life within the Milky Way Galaxy, which is also expanding outward in every direction. though not as quickly.

With as rare as intelligent life is likely to be, it is quite possible that we are alone at least within the Milky Way, which is eventually going to become like all other galaxies - an Island unreachable by anyone from another galaxy. But even if there is intelligent life elsewhere within the Milky Way, we are unlikely to ever make contact because by the time they receive the first radio signal we sent 100 years ago, our species will have already been extinct for a very long time from the inevitable death of our own sun. Even without human induced climate change, our sun will grow increasingly hotter and cook off our oceans long before it goes supernova. A species advanced enough to leave now will likely find Earth to be a cooked rock like Venus by the time they get here, though they may at least be able to study some of our ruins.

Unless of course we repeal the new Trump corporate tax welfare and instead reinvest in education, colonizing space, and other more worthy ventures.

Cool posts folks ! And I really like the fact that so far, the votes are aiming in a positive way, that there "is" the possibility of visitors / entities looking around here.

Over the past 20-years or so, there also seems to be quite a few respected military personnel & government officials ( including astronauts & cosmonauts alike ) that are revealing their own experiences to the public, in an effort to bring insight to us from their own experiences. I personally find great interest in the reports from before the 1950's, when the world was a much larger & disconnected from place-to-place, & communications were a rare ability shared by only the most advanced countries. This gives more credit IMO to reports of sightings from around the world, that were seen on similar dates & times, & reported locally in news-papers etc, but yet remained unknown to the rest-of-the-world until weeks later, until news-papers arrived from these places...And yet these appearances happened on the same nights etc.

Little-green-men aside, ( for now ), I tend to think that a majority of these sightings are of living life-forms, that do-their-thing by their own natural course, just like a fish swims in water, & a bird flies in our air. These life-forms have their place in outer-space, & do their thing in their own environment. It also seems that their "being" is generally out-of-our sensory spectrum, & only sometimes, do their spectrum's & ours overlap, which is why we sometimes see them, & mostly not. ( Think of a mouse that you spot in your kitchen, & one moment he's there looking at you, & the next, he's disappeared, & appears at the other-side of the room. He's moved so fast, that our eye's ( by design ) were too slow to see the movement, & yet there he is, on the other side of the room). - Maybe not the best example, but it does suggest what I'm alluring to.

Anyhow, let's hope more folks chime-in soon ! I'll write about my sighting(s) sometime soon, though they're hardly anything super-special, though unusual.

Yo,

I just snapped around 120 photos of a UFO that was flying around close-by around 20-minutes ago...And then it came back again LOL, but was further away from me than the last time...In fact it's still out-side as I write this post, but not close enough to warrant photos. It left like a flash of lighting the first time around, here one moment, & gone the next !

It essentially looked like a massive star, about the size of a dime, was alternating white-to-orange-to-red & back. The distance away can only be approximated, but we figured around 2-3 miles in US-of-A scale.

The camera revealed 3 x orbs in triangular formation, but none-of-the-photos show this...I'll scroll through them all, & pick the best-picture to post up here.

I also have two witnesses that saw the same thing. And an aeroplane flew past too, that settles any doubt about it being another plane, as the lighting on the aeroplane was easy to depict, & it was further away at higher elevation.

Awesome stuff.

Cheers,

Rastus

Oh yes I believe we are not alone. I have never seen one. I saw an article of a guy did autopsys on over 3000 different species.

I just have to ask, were you or any of your friends enjoying any Bonded Jim Beam at the time you seen this UFO? lol 

I myself have never seen an UFO yet, but I would love to see your photos! More and more people are claiming to have seen them and often times much like the way that youre describing with similar orbing lights. 

I want to believe!

 LOL !

No, but I did have a drink of the Bonded afterwards LOL ! I tried to upload minutes after my last post, but it didn't want to do so, so I'll try again now....

That is just amazing Rastus!

Too bad you couldnt have gotten a video, what are them lines? Trails? Very odd! The first one looks like a UFO the others not so much.

Thanks guys !

I agree with SELLC about the first picture, as that was essentially what we saw with our eyes. I won't get into what the camera sees, as I don't know how to answer that one, but those are the pictures LOL ! I just leave it in "auto" & shoot. It won't pick-up the stars at night, but did pick-up this thing however.

The camera's just a Cannon IXUS-185, 20.0 mega-pixel. I'm not into photography, but bought it to take snapshots of the engine-rooms of the many different vessels I'd sailed on, essentially in the belief that if I got to work on the same ship again in the future, I could refresh my mind as to its lay-out, & then slip into regular routine more quickly.

Now-days however, camera's are banned, & everything is hush-hush, with security enforcement top-priority.

Oh yeah, the UFO was back again last night, & I did grab some more photos, but the battery was nearly flat, so it seems ( for now ) that none-of-them were transferred to the little SDHC, as I checked-it-out on the computer, whilst the battery was recharging...This is disappointing too, as it was much closer last night, & moved around a lot more.

I might just have to jump-in-the-car tonight if it appears again, & get a closer look for better snap-shots...

Cheers,

Rastus

A video would be really cool, but be careful when you start chasing down UFOs! You could get abducted and subjected to anal probing and all sorts of nasty experiments.

LOL !

The darned thing appeared again last night !...And I got a few photos again too, though they're not too dissimilar to what I've already posted here...

As soon as I decided to jump in the car to get a better look, whoosh...Off it went again...

This would probably be a good time to mention the futility in trying to chase down a flying UFO in a automobile.

But I admire your enthusiasm!

Someone was saying on facebook that they too had seen things similar to Rastus, even had some photos that looked similar...

But from what I am reading it would appear these things are nothing more than drones...

Sorry guys, but your UFO's are simply drones with high powered LED light units attached to them.

LOL !

That could well be the case ^^^^^^ with drones, but we'll never know until I get to see the drone I suppose....

Interestingly, I did "chase" one down the road for about 5-miles ( Read as drove down the road keeping the light in sight ), & realized it was a fruitless effort, as "it" seemed to be keeping about the same distance away from me regardless. I did take some photo's too, but haven't processed them yet, as I figured they'd end-up being not-much-different to what I've already posted.

There's also been no reports of slaughtered animals, ring-marks in crops, or any anal probing reported lol !

But I do question how powerful these lights are, as they appear to be much-much brighter than air-craft lights - ( even when the aircraft is much closer & lights on ), & "my" UFO can be seen clearly when its say around 20-miles away...And what's the range of the remote control ?...

It was fun while it lasted I suppose !

Off subject but anyone watch any of the drone racing league? DRL, It's international, pretty cool. ESPN2 couple times a week.
