I'll admit that I personally have seen things that at first glance didn't appear to be aircraft, but on closer inspection and observation turned out to be exactly that. Just as with my sighting, I initially dismissed the craft as being a commuter plane or other small aircraft, and it was just serendipitous that I ended up staying out there long enough to realize that it was most definitely not an airplane after all.
Good question! I've wondered the same thing.
Maybe they want to show themselves, and make people aware slowly. Eyewitness is better than pictures where everyone cries "Hoax!"
The best evidence is personal experience.
Would you rather everybody just says ...yeah , UFO !!! , or is it better to get other peoples HONEST opinions ?
noun, plural UFO's, UFOs.
any unexplained moving object observed in the sky, especially one assumed by some observers to be of extraterrestrial origin.
1) Your camera
"I stood out there for an entire hour. I tried to take photos with my cell phone camera but none of them came out".
I wonder why you didn't manage take one decent picture or one decent film during the entire hour. You say that your camera isn't the best, but taking a picture of lights in a night sky should be easy even with a bad camera.
2) Your friend.
"He didn't have his glasses, so his vision was a bit blurred"
Wouldn't he remember to put on his glasses if you told him that he should come outside to check out a UFO?
3) "I decided to walk out to the edge of the field to investigate further. He declined to join me".
How unfortunate.. You both had the opportunity to collect som proof regarding the existence of extraterrestrial life which is in the interest of all mankind.. but he declined.. Instead he kind of left you alone in a field in the dark of night for an entire hour with a possible UFO. What kind of friend is he?
4) "I was deep in conversation" (on the phone) while "anticipating it growing closer and starting its landing approach".
Why on earth where you talking on the phone in deep conversation if you anticipated a UFO was going to land in your vicinity?
5) "Eleven minutes later" you hang up and call to your friend.. This means that you have been watching a possible UFO for about 11 minutes without telling you friend. That is wierd.
Just my thoughts, but I choose to believe you.
Why would you be lying?
"It's kind of like a Frisbee, two Frisbees on top of another, like an orange in the middle," he said. "And they were turning at an incredible rate. It was just like you could see the windows turning one way and the ship, the bottom part, turning the other way. And whatever way on top it was like glowing. I don't know what it was but it was beautiful." Lapratt said he saw several objects landing on the lake, then zipping away at high speed toward the treeline.

If I may offer a prosaic explanation for the video , given it is obviously a terrestrial aircraft perhaps an air to air refueling plane trailing 3 lines.
Just a thought.
