Good question, interesting observation as well. I've had similar experiences where initially I was telling friends and family about the things I'd
seen (3 separate occasions actually where I saw a "light in the sky" acting out of the ordinary).
As time pulled me farther away from these specific incidents, I became more and more likely to settle on a more mundane explanation. Even though at
the time of the sighting I had ruled out what I knew to be conventional explanations, I would end up settling on them eventually.
1. The first sighting where a light moved across the sky, dimmed, and faded out completely (east to west) wasn't a plane at first, nor was it a
satellite. Now my explanation rests between these two.
2. The second sighting where I saw a light moving across the sky from S to N at a constant speed and straight line and then started jumping around on
a path that was quite erratic became a bird, though when on the evening I saw it I dropped the glass I was holding and the cigarette I was smoking
fell from my lips.
3. The third sighting, which both my fiance and I witnessed where two lights seemingly far up in the sky seemed to be chasing each other, and when the
rear light executed such a move in an instant that made it seem like there was a huge light arc in the sky about an inch long (from perspective) and
ended up in the front of the chase, weeks later I ended up settling on the explanation that this was my eyes playing tricks on me, even though at the
time of the incident of the "arc" I said "whoa" out loud.
I've spend too much time on ATS, for better or worse. Lots and lots of doubt is injected into these arguments, which I think is healthy to a certain
Unfortunately, there won't be much headway in the studies until these supposed ETs reveal themselves. Until then, we'll see some anomalies, there
will be speculation, but we won't have a unified agreement or a vast breakthrough of knowledge.
