SlinkyDFW that is an excellent point! That one's for the win!! I've always thought; Lets say you wanted to study invade, save, teach, monitor (choose your poison) where would be the best vantage point? You certainly would visit the planet but would you want to stay on it if there's a perfectly good moon right there? And where would you put it? Wouldn't the dark side (we can't see them!!) be the best place to put your secret HQ? If you wanted any sort of anonymity at all you would keep yourself hidden from plain view! Sure they might want to let us know they are here, but why would they want us to know where they set up shop? They would loose some tactical or secretive advantage (or if you will the element of surprise).
About the lights. They may see in infrared and therefore would not be able to see the lights. The lights could be a BILLION other things other than for seeing alone. What about a byproduct or the effect of an advanced propulsion system? I know every propulsion system we use now lights up for reasons other than seeing! Ever heard of an after burner? They light up don't they? I'm not saying they use combustion but maybe its sort of atomic exhaust. Or maybe they even use light for propulsion. Case and point l
This isn't the only guy that knows light can bend space either it's in the world of known sciences. A way to accelerate passed the speed of light without breaking the laws of physics. Better yet maybe they bend space/time with it. If anyone (even a schizophrenic) can give a logical explanation of why there might be lights.ANY LOGICAL REASON.... Then you can no longer argue that they are used for seeing and can not possibly serve another purpose. THAT'S LUDICROUS!
