A lot of the shapes are kind of samey, and could easily be similar objects seen from different angles. Human recall is not perfect and we're capable
of 'saucerizing' a lot of usual or unusual athmospheric phenomenon into something else. So four people could see a saucerish object and disagree on
the details, or see some lights in the sky and have their imaginations run wild. Many UFO sightings last only for a short while. Not much time to
I've seen UFOs in the loosest sense of the word twice in my life. The second sighting lasted only several seconds, perhaps 20 at max. I only managed
to established that it was not a bird, not an airplane, totaly noiseless, extremely fast for anything terrestial, black in colour and it looked
cylinderish, but could have been saucerish if I was looking at it from sideways. A lot of UFO sightings are like this. They are over almost as soon as
they started, leaving the witnesses confused over what they saw. I know I was. If I had stronger expectations of all UFOs being saucer-shaped I would
have more likely to perceive it as "saucerish or cylinderish" instead of the other way around. A whole lot of fast-moving shapes can be intepreted
as being something or other.
That said, not all sightings are so transient or open to interpretation. Just my 0.2€.
