Hello all: I am new at UFO, and E.T. I am in Tennessee, USA and i would like to know if there is a specific time of the day, like at night that we could conduct sky-watches from our own backyard at home. And how to conduct a sky-watch. What equipment do we need? Do we need binoculars? or can we do a sky-watch with our plain eyes.

I suggest just looking up with the naked eye on a clear night. You need to watch the sky for much longer than a few mins, so the odds of seeing something increases. Sightings are reported all hours of the day, but personally I think the odds are better between the hours of 1am to 4am. Once you've been a skywatcher for awhile you'll familiarize yourself with the stars and common aircraft.

You could have binoculars, a camera or video camera ready, if you see something.

I'm sure other members can offer more suggestions, like wishful thinking etc.

What do satellites look like in the night sky? I see several objects that fly from one side of the sky to the other that look like stars. (I thought satellites were stationary) I saw something a little different last night though, and my parents got to see it as well. It was a very bright glowing ball, kind of like a meteor, but it wasn't moving near as fast as a meteor does. Also, after it flew brightly for a while it got dimmer then faded away. I have seen something similar to that a few nights before.

Hydroman, It sounds like you are seeing satellites.

They are can be pretty bright, especially the ISS. They move across the sky in a perfectly straight line at steady speeds from horizon to horizon.

Nanovapor, you could try initiating contact for yourself. If you meditate, send out the message that you wish to make contact, you could ask them to show themselves at specific time and place. It may be a good idea to pick a location that has seen UFO activity in the past and also if you do this, try to give them some notice and meditate on the location and date every day until the date.
Try to visualize the location as much as possible, without projecting your hopes on it.

On the night use your eyes to spot any movement and if you spot something then you can use binoculars to get a better look. Binoculars are much more useful than a telescope. It is damn near impossible to track a moving object with a telescope, especially if that object is moving erratically.
I personally prefer to use my eyes, just because by the time you have picked up a pair of binoculars, found the object and focussed on it, you may have missed something or even worse it has vanished entirely.

You don't have to believe me, but I have had a bit of experience with the visitors. I am pretty sure that if you can focus your intent on them while meditating, that sometimes they can pick up on it.

Happy hunting.

Good luck
