No offense to the OP, but I am sick and tired of these threads posting anecdotal stories. UFO Sighted by the masses.... not one photo or video. How is this even post worthy? News articles are utterly useless unless they corroborate events that took place.

It's not an anecdotal story.

Fair enough there wasn't a picture or video in the opening post, but they aren't always available. Sometimes members pass on info about sightings such as this one just to get the info out to the ATS community early.

If anyone is the slightest bit interested in a thread they would do a little digging themselves, and who knows they may just find a few news reports on the subject....backing up the OP's original thread.

Everyone applauded. "We saw a luminous object near Sun and people (Sky-watchers) started saying they were sure it was a UFO or Ovni."
We hope some one will upload the Chile total solar eclipse UFO footage

I know that a good thread on ATS is one that is filled with lots of info, facts, pictures, videos and sources, but sometimes i think members need to stop expecting to be lavished with everything, and be prepared to do a little groundwork themselves.

That's what makes this place, not just one OP.

I do apologize to you and I will begin to apologize in advance in the title of these threads.

I didn't realize that I led you, or anyone, to believe there were pictures or videos in the title or in the thread itself.

I suppose I could have waited a day, or more, and continually searched for pictures or videos of what was seen, but I didn't. I didn't, under the assumption that those interested in such news would want it while it was still new and not a grapvine story.

I suppose I also made the mistake to think that getting a story like this into a medium for more people to see and help work on a solid conclusion was wrong. Next time I read a story like this I will do no follow up research and I will not post it anywhere.

If what I learn in the original story I see isn't good enough then I am not going to waste one second to get to the bottom of it, I am going to wait for the person who originally told the story to make sure that everyone in the world doesn't have to read or research any of the evidence. Forbid that more than one person looks into something and really forbid that they ask for help from peers.

I hope this is not what you expect from the members here at ATS. I know I sure don't expect them to act this way. I am more than happy to look at any story offering insight into what may be going on. I will definitely help anyone who posts here find legitimate answers to there questions.

This apology is real, I apologize for wasting so much time responding to you, instead of thanking the members who actually contributed something to this thread and not those who troll through every thread they see.

Funny, I never really understood what a troll was until I came here.

I am kind of surprised that no one has seemed to notice that the picture Phage posted of where venus was in relation to the moon does not exactly match up with the one photo we do have. Phage's photo has it NE of the moon. The Photos "Light" is SE. So, all ready we have a problem with blaming it on Venus.

I wondered how long it would be before a post like this showed up about this eclipse. After all China is going to take 3 years to figure out what they saw. Im sure the next thing we will hear is that that light is just a helicopter flying low over the beach or something....

Personally I am glad this thread is started by the OP, sad he had to make his above response. I for one am going to try and find more as it does interest me.
Thanks OP

I don't view your approach as unreasonable, if the intention to that effect is clearly stated.

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not
