I always wondered this, I look at videos shot back in 1930 , I see a UFO with no flashing lights, they look really old fashioned.

Than I look at videos that was shot back in 1990-2009 and these videos are apparently are real and the UFO has flashing lights look more modern

unless im wrong?

Probably because UFO's are human made. With or without alien back engineering. That is at least what I think.

That question is at the very heart of asking what UFOs are. The fact that they can look appropriate to the period begs the questions:

Are they even 'nuts and bolts' craft?

Are they really ET?

Are UFOs really a whole bunch of different phenomena?

If not, what?

Because whatever pics there are, almost all of them are fake, so limited by the tech and appearance of that time.

(I'm guessing that by 'UFOs" you mean the objects misidentified as ET ships.)

IMHO, if at all ETs visit this place, they are a lot smarter, almost gods, compared to us and if they don't want us to see them, we won't by any means. (e.g O'Hare incident)

We will see them, and take pics of them, if and only if they decide to do so.

The Same reason a car from the 1930's looks so different from a 2009 car..

Second Line...

I think it just depends on the VISITORS AT THAT MOMENT.

ALL UFOs? or just some? It can't be all.... I find that very hard to believe that UFOs were man made when they were seen well before flight even existed early last century.

If you have a theory that UFOs are all human made... you can't just ignore UFO sightings at a time that prove they can't have been made by humans just because it doesn't fit the theory.

I believe there are a few possible reasons for that:

- Our perception of them changes over time, as in, do you see artifacts and art created by older civilizations and how they use to represent birds and other things? maybe we, our eyes and brains, interpret these objects in a different way as we move on on time and space? so it is more related to how we see the world around us than to how they really are.

- They are human made, it feels the same as with cars, a new car each year, with updates style and features, a new UFO model each decade
, either because whoever build them is improving the model, or because people is getting better at faking them and using modern tech to do so.

- UFOs have always looked the same, since the beginning of it all, thousands of years ago, but is people who are mislead so that they will describe them according to our times, then it is easy to separate real cases from fake ones, look at old sightings such as the Nuremberg 'battle' in 1561 for a good example, since people tend to follow current trends as much as possible, they will describe things as they think they should look like from our human perspective, that's why they 'look' like whatever we are using right now

- I don't know

I think you'll find a lot of so called evidences from the middle part of last century to the 70's-80's looked like they do because of hoaxers who do not actually research ufology, they create fakes according to their own intellects, which seem limited, as much as anything else.

There were loads of people trying to cash in using the ability of channelling, which most couldn't channel a sprite let alone a non Terran intelligence, to create varying forms of extraterrestrial evangelism etc.

Bloody fruitcakes most of them, i've watched videos of these folks and i have channelled myself on occasion, (Don't ask, i don't divulge anything, i keep it quiet and let the correct people know if i need to pass anything on.) so i am familiar with how myself and others are when they actually do channel, beit it entity or advanced being but some of those jokers are absurdly laughable or would be if the damae they did to ufology back then wasn't as serious as the numbnut hoaxers of today muddying waters.

Ruddy cultists!

But 50-30 years ago, people paid into that sort of thing.

If you watch something like Ancient Aliens, you'll see that throughout history there have been people recording Non Terran Craft in paintings etc and those are similar to what we see today.

There is a relative physics reason why some craft 50 years ago may seem a more primitive configuration to those arriving in recent decades.

Which is simple really, faster and better ships leaving the same planet a lot later say 100-200 years apart for example, may lead to 50 years ago here having first arrivals in more basic craft and a few decades later the faster craft travel the same distances in less relative time so arrive to us a few decades later but departed their planet of origin a couple of hundred years later than the ones arriving here 50-60 odd years ago, time frames are for example nothing else.

If ya catch me drift, loike. It's an explaination but methinx it may apply to maybe one maybe two of the common observed species, others have always seemed to have advanced craft as we perceive them today in scifi as can be extrapolated from history if we look and also of course in decent non hoaxed photgraphic evidences and pilot and other observer testiment.

But there are many species which visit this planet, have done since thousands of years ago and the advanced configurations can be discerned in some very good artworks from hundreds of years ago and longer, also some of what is written into some cultural records from antiquity, aka mythologies, describe things which are not exactly low tech' dustbin lids and string etc, the descriptives are of things very advanced indeed.

Ancient aliens is uploaded here by jimbobjoeboo as too a lot of very good ufological material mainly from the history Channel.

Well it's a pretty obvious answer in theory. Maybe in the 40's those particular aliens were just advancing to interstellar travel and those where the first line of ships, and it stands to reason that they would advance just like our cars and jet and etc advance. The "new" ships are just updated versions. If I remember correctly though, there are alot of UFOs from the old pics that look the same as new ones too.

To answer this question, one has to first differentiate between a real UFO Spacecraft and a hoax, something which is virtually impossible to do with all the scammers out there.

Maybe the invention of the hologram has something to do with the more current futuristic UFO designs.

Why do cars from the 30's look different than the cars in the 40's and so on? Maybe the aliens have different spaceship manufacturers and they are changing their designs over the years just like we do with our cars.

Where have you seen footage of a UFO shot back in 1930? And if UFOs are real ET craft coming here secretly, why would they bother to have flashing lights on that would only attract attention and eliminate that secrecy?

Looking at the report database, every shape ever described is still being seen and reported on even in the year 2009. So I don't know where you're getting your information from.

Obviously, those older cave paintings were CGI

The fact that people didn't have cameras back then or a way to focus on an object that size and distance, probably means they drew what they, the artists, thought it would look like.

Some also look like they were balloons or dirigibles of some type.

I've also wondered if many of these were more conventional craft by an advanced earth based or possibly stranded visitors, kinda like Gilligans Islands professor.

1). They change with the times, as they are figments of the human imagination; or
2). They are like cars...every year the ETs come out with a newer streamlined model of space ship; or
3). Different species of ETs are visiting, each with their own unique spaceship design.

I dunno...

Flying Shield-Flying Saucer
Sounds similar.

Alexander the Great UFO

329 BC: Alexander the Great records two great 'flying shields'

329 BC Location
Central Asia,

Summary: Alexander the Great records two great silver shields, spitting fire around the rims in the sky that dived repeatedly at his army as they were attempting a river crossing. The action so panicked his elephants, horses, and men they had to abandon the river crossing until the following day.

Kenneth Arnold didn't describe some old-fashioned flying device, according to every possible comparison between the average military knowledge of aircrafts on 1947 and his drawings:

the question in the OP seems to imply that the could be some correlation between our terrestrial technological progress and sightings: some intelligent question that should rise some intelligent debate and MANY doubts about the majority of sightings. And as correctly pointed out, the majority, the vaste majority of them, is not to be taken seriously because of a matter of facts: in the most fortunate cases, the 90% of case studied turned out to be explainable and got eplained, but ask to Columbus crew if what they saw was looking like some Ford or some Chrysler. So, a study would be interesting, but only if narrowed on the unexplained cases, which are a very small percentage, the ones to which no one seem to be interested to focus on (people prefer to focus on meaningless photos showing mostly birds & bugs): but if we put all together into a mixer, then the result will be useless and deceiving, and to leave alone the too old stuff may not be necessary but's better.
A good OP every now and then, thank you

There are UFOs (unidentified flying objects) that are not alien but rather made in someone's backyard. I think we don't fully understand what UFOs really are but we assume that they have certain physical characteristics. But what if they're not even material objects but manifestations of something more complex? The phenomenon has existed since the beginning of time and for different times (and levels of understanding) they manifested differently. Can you imagine Einstein trying to explain a caveman what e=mc2 is? If UFO are manifestations of something, a language of some kind if you will, then the question is "what is the message?".

The ufo orb type doesn't change. From the 'star' of Bethlem, to the Nuremburg ufo orbs, all the way to the foo fighters of WW2 and the critters and OBOL (they actually come in all colours) of today, the ufo orb has remained consistent though recorded history.

More powerful now.
They don't fly low and slow.
Only rookie pilots get stuck.
Safest air craft in the world made by Tesla.
Cloaked by purple haze of ether fire.
Or enveloped in electrical fire or electrostatic discharges.
Oval rounded or saucer flat or wok type were noted by Walton.
The triangle and wing are also 50 years old at least.
The submarine for the first trial cylinder and a zeppelin are still around.

For ancient levitation there were gold foil plated hot air balloons
to pick up static electricity.
These balloons might be in any shape, have bottled gas as today
and fool many today perhaps.
