But, it still doesn't make sense... Why would they need that, if they could just use their super-advanced technology to detect them and outmaneuver
the incoming aircraft. And if it were headlamps... where are they pointing to?
They might have something like a quantum-radar (remember, its speculation) and advanced vision modes to see at night and day. Remember, they got here
to planet Earth, where we can't even leave our own atmosphere without using too much resources and must return (in a relatively short time) to Earth
to keep the astronauts alive.
To the others who posted about propulsion systems that might emanate a glow/light... this sounds a bit more logical and plausible. But the thing that
bothers me about this is, why doesn't it glow in space? With infrared, its understandable, but to the naked eye, its hard seeing them in space (which
often gets debunked as "space debris"). And if it is an experiment to see our reactions, why not turn it on in space? I think, by now, they know
that we have massive (and even small) telescopes pointed at the sky (then NASA, unfortunately, comes to mind).
If anyone gets abducted in the near future (by real ETs)... remember to ask them, why do they have lights on their craft.
