Is this the "smoking gun" or another saga to be debunked by the self appointed debunkers that lurk in this site in abundance. :p


Leroy Chiao, commander of the International Space Station in 2005 recently opened up about his UFO sighting from space. They were 230 miles above the Earth, and traveling at a speed of 17,000 miles per hour when Chiao spotted a UFO (Unidentified Flying Object). Chiao told the Huffington post:

“I saw some lights that seemed to be in a line and it was almost like an upside-down check mark, and I saw them fly by and thought it was awfully strange. It wasn’t just one, but a line of them strung out along the South American coast” (1)

“I’m skeptical of claims that we’ve been visited by aliens from another planet or other dimensions, but I don’t rule it out 100 percent. I have an open mind and I do believe there’s other life in the universe.”

Fire up the engines guys. Time to kill the thread and the messenger. The forbidden subject has found its way in the open again. LOL !!!

I don't see it as a "smoking gun" at all. I see it as a guy who saw strange lights that he could not readily identify as being of this world.

People see strange lights all of the time, but I don't think a report of strange lights on its own is a "smoking gun". I suppose it is within the realm of possibilty that some unidentified lights in the sky are actually alien craft, but not necessarily.

Just as Leroy Chaio said in the article:

'I’m skeptical of claims that we’ve been visited by aliens from another planet or other dimensions, but I don’t rule it out 100 percent. I have an open mind and I do believe there’s other life in the universe.”

I feel the same way as he does, for the most part.

No it's not the "smoking gun", it's just interesting but he really dosn't add anything else but more questions.

Don't pick on the debunkers, they are very usefull to this site

You guys just crack me up. Is like I'm talking to a wall that doesn't listen and doesn't think. No offense but which part of "smoking gun" you didn't understand?

I cannot make the quotation marks bigger than they are.

Smoking gun? Don't make me laugh, it's an opinion over something that he seen, it still doesn't automatically mean aliens

ATS's Jim Oberg can tell us what they cut out of his analysis on the youtube vid. He says that "sure enough", lights were on the photographs from space. My guess is lightening from a thunderstorm, but his comment on this thread would be most en"light"ening.

edit: I've u2ued Jim Oberg, and hopefully he'll come by here to explain the smoke emitting from that gun (my guess is still smoke-lightening)

Smoikng gun means very clear and solid evidence -- e.g. when a person seen holding a smoking gun over another person who was just shot, that "smoking gun" is very clear and solid evidence that the person holding the gun pulled the trigger.

In this case, how is this sighting of strange lights clear and solid evidence of anything other than that -- lights?

Then I don't understand the point of this thread. What are you trying to say?

I understand it is an article about a sighting, but your inflammatory language made it seem you were approaching it from another angle (your words about "self-appointed debunkers" and "time to kill the tread and the messenger" and "forbidden subjects").

So do you or don't you feel this sighting is clear evidence (a smoking gun) as something otherworldy?

The most interesting thing about that video was seeing Oberg without his flaming skeptic hat on!

Well, this thread will go in to 10 pages of debating the " smoking gun " phrase and not that of the sighting in question


In any case, all sightings from space bearing humans contribute to the ever so long list of other sightings. Well done to them, no matter how minor the sighting.

Cheers OP

Are you interested in discussing the topic or pick on the one guy who FORGOT quotation marks?

I agree, but there is very little detail on the sighting itself to even be able to investigate/determine what it might have been. There is no clear evidence of it being mundane NOR clear evidence of it being otherworldly.

That's why the "smoking gun" assertion was questioned.

We can discuss Chiao's sighting, but there really isn't much to say besides giving unconfirmable speculation of EITHER a prosaic/natural explanation or an alien explanation.

The way I perceive what you are saying is that if there is not enough detail in the OP then all should attack the messenger? I'm not saying you are directly, but this is what I am perceiving


Also worth noting here before anyone starts to attack me. The OP is asking .... COULD this be the " Smoking Gun "? He's not claiming it is though a good few members seem to think otherwise.

Meh, things can be perceived differently I suppose


Cheers

According to this there was a possible explanation put forward in “NASA’s Unexplained Files” possibly by Jim Oberg I guess...

A down-to-Earth explanation is offered for Chiao’s sighting: the bright lights of a fishing boat hundreds of miles below him. But is that the only possible interpretation of what the astronaut saw?
