Yes and seen both more than twice. edit: ufo/ghosts. Still working on what I've seen (and if) alien wise... it's 'blurry.' to say the least.

Wouldn't the nature of this forum tend to skew your results somewhat? I know we have our fair share of skeptics but I'm betting most of the folks who freuquent the Aliens & UFOs forum would likely be believers.
I voted yes, BTW.
Poll: U.S. hiding knowledge of aliens.

(CNN) -- Nearly 50 years since an alleged UFO was sighted at Roswell, New Mexico, a new CNN/Time poll released Sunday shows that 80 percent of Americans think the government is hiding knowledge of the existence of extraterrestrial life forms.
While nearly three-quarters of the 1,024 adults questioned for the poll said they had never seen or known anyone who saw a UFO, 54 percent believe intelligent life exists outside Earth.
Sixty-four percent of the respondents said that aliens have contacted humans, half said they've abducted humans, and 37 percent said they have contacted the U.S. government. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
But only 9 percent said they believed there were any aliens near the Hale-Bopp comet, which recently passed close enough to Earth to be seen with the naked eye.
