The other aspect is that many UFOs that have been observed are not objects of a solid or metallic color, but luminescent objects. How could blimps be so luminous that people see bright orange, blue of white lights in the skies at night? Because they're phosphorescent? For what purpose would the government built blimps with glow-in-the-dark hulls!?

Did I say "radar operators"? I was talking about the general population, people like yourself But, yes, it's quite possible for a radar operator to be fooled by multiple targets.

And I once reminded you that credibility requires accurate context if you know it. Your statement as written is
not credible if for no other reason than the term UFO was coined in 1952, rendering your statement of questionable

In your case, a desire to communicate your own understanding to other believers.
"I think the "Generic" term , "UFO", is well established enough for us to be able to use it in this and further discussion's. " ==l_s
My answer to that is to quote you from the forum topic "UFO's are real is an irritating misnomer"
quote "I find that very frustrating also."==l_s
You cant have it both ways, as I once told Gazrok.

True, such blimps may indeed be the cause of some sightings, but to assume that they are the cause of ALL, and that the idea of them "closes the case", is painting the issue with an EXTREMELY broad brush...and that paint simply won't stick....

"I can assure you that flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on earth."
— President Harry S. Truman, 1950.
"With our obsession with antagonisms of the
moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. I occasionally think how quickly our differences, worldwide, would vanish
if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world." .. Former President Ronald Reagan, while sharing the stage with former Russian leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, 1988.
"It is true that I was denied access to a facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton,
Ohio, because I never got in. I can't tell you
what was inside. We both know about the
rumors (concerning a captured UFO and crew members). I have never seen what I would call
a UFO, but I have intelligent friends who have."
US Senator, US Air Force General, and
candidate for President, Barry Goldwater,
quoted from a letter he wrote dated April
"Well, Slim, (McClelland's knick name by
Astronaut friends), I was flying a P-51 Mustang
at about 12,000 feet over Minneapolis in 1951.
I thought it was a simple kite. As I flew closer to
it I looked at it and thought it was a weather balloon. But as I got behind it I could tell it wasn't
a balloon. It looked like a disc."
NASA astronaut, Donald "Deke" Slayton.
"While flying with several other USAF pilots over Germany in 1957, we sighted numerous radiant flying discs above us. We couldn't tell how high they were. We couldn't get anywhere near their altitude."
"While working with a camera crew supervising flight testing of advanced aircraft at Edward's Air Force Base, California, the camera crew filmed the landing of a strange disc object that flew in over their heads and landed on a dry lake nearby. A camera crewman approached the saucer, it rose up above the area and flew off at a speed faster than any known aircraft." ... NASA astronaut, L. Gordon Cooper.

There are those who know about extraterrestrials and then there are those who are jealous of those who know about extraterrestrials.
Those who claim to know what others have seen or not seen are simply arrogant or naive.
It takes intelligent life to recognize intelligent life.
There are millions of non-human species on earth, animal, insect and plant life.
All co-existing----all unaware of the other---for the most part
Many humans fall into that category----believing they are king of the hill.
However, humans are only one in billions in a crowded galaxy, and at the lowest level of the food chain concerning intelligence.
