My question to you is, since you are a scientist/engineer and you have seen a UFO, why do you think other scientists who likely have seen such objects for the most part remain silent on the issue? A lack of sightings, fear of government reprisal for speaking out on what appears to be a covered up subject, or fear of ridicule in general? It would seem that scientists would have less to fear from ridicule and be taken more seriously if they did discuss their sightings given their background.
