A recently discovered group of nearby co-orbital objects is an attractive location for extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) to locate a probe to observe Earth, while not being easily seen

Reminds me of that twilight zone episode which I always remember from the 80's. Aliens visit Eart and tell the leaders they are unimpressed by their barbaric nuclear weapons and give earth 1 year (don't remember exact timeframe) to mend their ways or they will wipe humanity out and seed a new race
When the aliens come back, all the countries have signed peace agreements and disarmed. The aliens tell the leaders they were bred to become warriors and they expected far more sophisticated weapons and they would be resetting humanity.
I remember this so well because we have no idea what aliens actually want.

Good thread! S and F.
This has been been a long held belief of mine. It is exactly what we will do, if we survive that long. W-a-y- before we ever send a human interplanetary we will send probes. Just like the moon, Mars, and all the others.
We are driving full size RC cars on Mars right now. Interplanetary travelers would be able to send AI self driving aircraft for sure, so that would be our first contact.
Only question is, were they there observing dinosaurs or cavemen and on their way? Time will tell.

I appreciate when we apply human ideals to ET opinion.
Really makes a lot of sense.
This Elementalist guy is an expert on ET policy.
Haha!! Agreed. Thinking that ET has the same mindset as humans is really idiotic.

I wonder if Saturn's moons and its rings not to be an ideal place to observe us from and from thereon do recognizance to our little pale blue dot?
Prof Says Beings From Outer Space Have Visited Earth
Associated Press, November 26, 1962
..."That means that every star, such as our sun, would be visited at least once every million years. In some systems where these beings found life, they would make more frequent visits. There's a strong probability, then, that they have visited earth every few thousand years.
"It is not out of the question that artifacts of these visits still exist or even that some kind of base is maintained, possibly automatically, within the solar system, to provide continuity for successive expeditions.
"Because of weathering and the possibility of detection and interference by the inhabitants of earth it would be preferable not to erect such a base on the earth's surface. The moon seems one reasonable alternative."

A thought of mine. Considering the burns and illnesses that have stricken observers who got too close to UFOs, the UFOs are probably spitting out radiation from all over the spectrum -- infrared to ultraviolet, etc.
After asking various forensic pathologists to review his findings, Vallee claims that "what UFO witnesses describe as 'light' may, in fact, be a complex combination of ionising and non-ionising radiation. Many of the injuries described in Brazil, however, are consistent with the effects of high-power pulsed microwaves."
