Just some of my own thoughts on the subject.
From an Earthly point of view, lights are on a vehicle for basically two reason,to see or to be seen. Now if the wanted to be seen they could just
land on the Whitehouse lawn and take there six-legged dog for a walk or just land at any highly populated area not hover several hundred/thousand feet
in the air.
The fact that they are aliens leads be to presume that light or faster than light travel should be at there disposal, in that case headlights are'nt
gonna do them much good! and while they are hovering up there, studying cloud formations at close quarters with little dinky lights seems a hell of a
waste of a journey. And to be honest a technoligically advanced race is'nt going to use something as crude as light to navigate.
Which only leaves propulsion residue, but there is a snag there in my theory, again if they didn't want to be seen then i would of thought that the
designer of these craft could vent the residue up rather than down.
So my own conclusion is that anything with lights that are not all encompassing i.e. plasma, are of earthly design, but thats just my opinion.
