UFO contact? WHY are we not allowed to cast lights into the night sky?

FAA rules do not allow us to have a beam of light across the sky.
These beams were used in the past as advertisment for clubs events etc.
Nowaday they are not allowed over here at all.
The effects were beautifull too.

I mean there is a lot of talk how lights and light patterns attract UFOs.

The excuse behind that is that its dangerour for airplanes....
But airplanes are not criss crossing above the whole surface of the earth...

Are we kept from something here?

Well the ufo orbs are attracted to light from communicators (dyno torches) so maybe they are aiming to curb contact. Are Americans really not allowed to shine lights into the sky? Surprised to be honest, while at the same time if they want us to stay in the dark (pun not intended) banning torch lights is a sensible idea.

We can still use them here in the UK

And surely you have not had fireworks banned which I would have thought would be far more interesting for any ET UFOs to investigate

in Greece they are not allowed any more..
Maybe they think that we have too many airports scattered all over the place.
Funny! i thought the US had more airstrips than any other country.

The following used in a circular pattern as i hear is a great UFO invitation.

They are still used in the US all the time, also at the Luxor casino.

No fireworks are fine.... even the BIG ones.
We use them in less than 5km radius from the main airport all the time.
Even the city council.......

The circular pattern certainly does attract them using a hand torch. Wow, lights like those you show there really are going to attract ufos like moths to a candle.

Hi,

Don't know about laws in Greece but in Berlin we have an annual festival of light where lasers are shone both diagonally and veritcally....

Regarding fireworks - have flown into the UK on couple of times on Bonfire Night (Nov 5th for all non UK members - a celebration where the English burn an effigy of Guy Fawkes who in 1606 was (alledgedly) trying to blow up the UK parliament... some things never change.) and the fireworks, whilst spectacular from the ground, were hardly noticeable until on final approach.

Peace!

Meh, these days it's more like the celebration where the Brits go and watch pretty fireworks. I haven't seen a Fawkes effigy in years, and bonfires are now prohibited in a lot of places due to one regulation or another.

And now, on topic. I see them (light beams into the sky) around the millenium wheel all the time. Not sure why they're banned in the US.

It has to do with light pollution. Bright, upward pointing lights make the night sky go away. In the US there are eleven states with laws regulating light pollution.

Here in UK there are laws which are in place to prevent light pollution eg we have to shade road lights etc so that light is forced downward where it's needed.....and that is very sensible.

We are however allowed to ignite and launch sky lanterns which not only cause UFO false alarms which have to be sifted through to pick out the true sightings but, they set fire to anything they come into contact with. The UK law is an ass!

When a sky lantern gets sucked up into an airliner's engine.....perhaps then, they will be banned?

I saw this thread as an opportunity to give bad press to lanterns, so good riddance to them....they are a menace!

I did say that light beams into the sky are not allowed in Greece.
What i did not say: Light beams are not allowed in th US.
What i learned tonight? There are 11 states where light beams are forbiden.

Outcome? It is a general trend. Not many have thought of using light beams to atract UFOs. Consider you now know.

Do you think that if you start casting lights into the sky there will be noone to interfere with you? Even in isolated areas?

Abig drawback for many is:I am about to do the experiment the right way with 22 say high intensity/energy beams aranged in a cilindrical or steep cone aray in a 10 or 30m diameter initial shape from the roof of my house or my back yard.
Do i have the guts to confront aliens in my own back yard? Aliens i actually invited in myself?

In Michigan lights into the sky myst be fine the casino does it all the time. Line dux to make all things legal

airliners aren't allowed under a specific altitude.

if they were going under a specific altitude, say.. to spray a chemical cocktail like a chemtrail, that needs to be below a certain altitude to be dispersed effectively..

and someone used an easily affordable atlitude reader laser light just to measure the altitude of the plane.. then that plane could be reported.. hell many people could do this and see how many planes are under the legal altitude spraying chemtrails..

but to prevent that from happening.. shining lasers into the sky especially at planes is illegal because you're a terrorist suspect if you do.. because they think it could be a bazooka targeting laser or something.

so it's my advice to obey the law and not check if these planes are under a legal altitude.. because you'll be looked at as a terrorist.

by the way.. how dare you ask such a question... you terrorismist

Ok but casino lights are there forever doing the samne and the same thing all over again. Boring-especialy to UFOs.
Maybe they have an efect in the initial days but noone notices.
If you were to call out a UFO you would be using the lights pretty much like in the manner of a mors code. Blinking in an intelligent manner or rather not always on anyway!

Think of what i say in a reverse attitude. You saw my lights from about a 10 mile distance. What do you think?

Oh boy George is playing with his fancy lights again...

or?

Wow there is something alien happening right there, propably government related.

Propably the later one because commonly boy George would not be allowed to play around with his lights...

High powered spotlights are still used out here where I am at. And it is true that their use is heavily regulated near airports and along holding pattern zones and flight paths to approach and departure from the runways.

I dont think the Luxor would be able to use its light, which is several times more powerful than the most powerful ground based spot light if they were banned.



And there is the famous blue Luxor Laser!!




A beauty eh?!!!


Cheers!!!!

Imagine how much of that "pollution" would be eliminated by simply shutting off unused lights in empty office buildings and street lights lighting up roadways that are barren of traffic.


And how much energy would be saved to boot!!



Cheers!!!!

There were a few notorious cases where pilots were momentarily blinded by people fooling around with lasers.

I would think that this law is in response to that wouldn't you?

Making it illegal to shine a laser into the sky to attract UFO's (whether or not it works) is hardly going to stop people from trying. Who is going to report you? the ET's?
