foot Triangle UFO just sat over Manhattan for a long time?
And it did not communicate? So, it clearly posed no immediate threat, other than just sitting there? And the Government did not have a clue where it
came from - nothing was seen approaching - it just suddenly popped into existence just there? Then, after a while, it would disappear again?
Well, I guess that at least the folks that lived right under the thing would try to get away from under it in case it might fall down. This would
probably result in some stampedes and lots of people being hurt. The media would be all over it, too big to deny. The Government would be puzzled,
chances are they have never imagined this to be possible so there is no scenario available, no plan A nor B.
What will be done is damage control: sending help to assist the wounded, ensuring that those that want to leave do so in an orderly way, soothing an
calming down. They would not fire at it and would strongly advise against it, as it might provoke unwanted actions. They would possibly decide to send
out some fighters or helicopters to investigate the thing, but would be hesitant to provoke it let alone shoot at it, as that would always result in
collateral damage. If you'd fire a rocket at it, that might bounce off and end up killing innocent citizens. It may even trigger the thing to fire
back which might return in choppers falling down in Manhattan, or even worse if they managed to shoot the thing down.. image the damages if a 500 ft
object crashed in Manhattan.
Let's face it: if that is a ship of some kind it's almost certainly build (or grown, or projected, created, who knows what) by some intelligence
vastly superiour to us. If they were agressive, it would be of no use to float a ship above a city, they would simply destroy us.
If nothing else happened and it disappeared later on, it would soon be explained away as a natural phenomenon. Strange cloud formation. Weird
reflection of surface structures. Or, at best, an unknown phenomenon. Which is actually correct: if they don't communicate, it is just that - an
So, actually - even if it did happen, it would not prove anything nor change much, alas. Those that believe in the ET hypothesis would be convinced ET
showed up (though no proof of it was found) and the skeptics would say "look, an inversion, some stray light and a flock of birds created an amazing
