A picture is always worth a thousand words, especially with reference to the size of an object. With Ufos on this scale you think that it would be more well publicized and noticed but with the priority of the media being the way it is you wouldn't know. Sightings of Ufos and global events such as earthquakes seem to be ramping up at the moment and pointing towards a time in the near future of some form of revelation, could be just hype spreading like a fever but only time will tell. Awesome thread though, mind blowing when things are put into scale
Using the Low Resolution Spectrometer yielded 17 ambiguous candidates of which four were slightly amusing but still ambiguous and questionable. The largest one sun bolometric distance in the 17 source sample is 118 pc. The 11000 source Calgary sample extended down to 1-2 Jy which would have given a maximum bolometric distance of 300 pc for LRS sources. This region includes something like a million stars.
A Dyson sphere is a hypothetical megastructure originally described by Freeman Dyson. Such a "sphere" would be a system of orbiting solar power satellites meant to completely encompass a star and capture most or all of its energy output.

Anyone who considers that idiotic webcam video of a bug to be some alien piloted craft, or a physical UFO needs their head examined. Plain and simple.
I looked, and I couldn't find the police and insurance reports of the THOUSANDS of windows that would have been broken by such an aerial maneuver....odd. And let's forget the thousand other common sense reasons why this video isn't what your deepest desires and religious like belief system make it out to be....but lets just ignore everything and jump to the least likely conclusion.....wait...stop....look over there!!! It's an image of the virgin mary in that tree bark....lol. But if I turn my brain off, and put on my tin foil hat, sure I guess this could be a real honest to goodness UFO worthy of terrifying those evil skeptics.....lol.
Please, sir you are not only insulting us but you are embarrassing yourself.
Another sci-fi speculation is that the objects are real and that size. In this scenario, maybe they can only be seen from one perspective and aren't really in the same space as us? Like walking past an open garage; you need to be in the right place to see what's parked up in there.
The only thing the OP exposed was his own gullability and willingness to through away all logic and intelligence.

Nice take on the whole subject, and indirectly, an interesting look at our attitude towards anomalous - possibly mechanical (in our sense of the word) - flying objects.
It does seem almost ludicrous that these UFOs are real, nuts and bolts "ships". Taking the line that they are solid objects, their size, in comparison to our own level of technology, is impossible. But then again, how do we gauge the achievements of a species (or civilisation) we know nothing about?
Consider someone from the fourteenth century seeing an Airbus A380 in flight. Wouldn't that seem contrary to everything you knew about science and physics at the time?
And to speculate: What if they - the "pilots" of these behemoths - are actually colossal in stature? What if they are tiny, and these ships are actually their planets? Smart, sentient, spacefaring bacteria anyone?
Now that's big.

You started with the JAL flight, which has been fully explained.
You ended with the Pheonix lights, which were fully explained.

Hmmmm......makes me wonder if there could also be microscopic UFO's. I mean using stealth gear is one thing, but good luck getting a ship the size of an amoeba on film.

I have a friend that personally SAW one of these, he said.. it HAD to be at LEAST 1 mile in length and width.
ATS.. you have a challenge before now, could a craft of this size actually even be built on or under the earth.....?? A craft 5 miles WIDE..........
