Very interesting thread... mostly for the comments about UFO thread comments, heh, and I like KPB's list. But the initial sighting seems credible...
like many, many, many others.
Now, there ARE strange mechanical looking things seen in the skies... and that statement, unfortunately, is the only definite fact
glean from even years of study... but wow, the hypothesis as to the what and whys are voluminous... sometimes ingenious, and varied in likelihood as
being THE REAL FINAL ANSWER(s).
But again, there ARE very strange, mechanical looking (and yes, a few biological looking) things seen in the sky... and sometimes underwater... and
even on rare occasions, diving into or emerging from seemingly solid ground, etc., etc.
They vary so widely in the details of their appearance that it is difficult to ascribe all of them to secret test (or operational) military craft.
And that same problem arises for supposed aliens managing or studying us... if it's all aliens, then jeepers, we are a major focus of some intensive
study... or humans are just universally sexy.
There are a few "models" of "craft" seen that match other sightings from years and continents of separation... (like the McKenna saucer with angled
antenna seen and photographed in Oregon and then in France, for one) but they're pretty rare. The beings associated with some sightings are more
likely to match in appearance than their supposed mechanical transportation, actually... but the variety of beings (allegedly) experienced can (and
do) still fill a book.
And that's why so many larger intellects (starting with Bergier, Vallee, Keel, etc) move past the "it's all little grey aliens" or 'it's all secret
navy" suppositions... the long history coupled with the variety of machines seen, and the weird actions of the variety of beings experienced in
conjunction with them, just add up to ... well, it adds up to nothing totally satisfying to our monkey brains steeped in materialistic physics.
But darnit... some of them surely can be classified as classified vehicles... and the aforementioned threads dealing with the info from astr0 (and
others) seem to help with those cases... but there is a much larger, weirder answer(s) for the sightings as a whole... or that's what some, including
And it might be a variety of unexpected scenarios (including other dimensions and universes and our state of being) that provide answers.
Because, again, there ARE strange mechanical looking vehicles seen in our skies... and though we need to weed out the poor observations, ignorance and
lies, talking about it in a serious and open manner is the only way to finally stagger, bedraggled, stinking and delirious, to the end of this

and apologies for stating the obvious, but some posters seem to forget that UFOs exist in some form
