1) UFOs/Aliens which I happen to know aren't a conspiracy. It's the real deal and I know the universe is teeming with life.

Here is another outstanding report of a huge one in the Northern Yukon territory.
Puerto Rico, 1988.
December 28, 1988, 7:45 p.m. Area of the towns of Lajes and Cabo Rojo in the western end of Puerto Rico.
(see January 1990 issue of the MUFON UFO Journal for details).
Numerous residents of the area reported seeing jet fighters flying through the area, starting at 6 p.m. A week earlier, some people had seen jet fighters chase a small UFO over the Sierra Bermeja mountain ridge and Laguna Cartagena (a lagoon), sites where a number of UFO sightings had been reported since 1987.
At 7:45 this evening, residents saw a large triangular UFO flying over the Sierra Bermeja.
It seemed to have some kind of extended appendage on its frontal section with many brilliant colored lights constantly blinking on and off.
It was slightly curved at its rear end, had a gray metallic structure and had a large central yellow light that was being emitted from a big bulging luminous circular concave appendage.
At the triangle's right "wing tip" were brilliant yellow lights and on the left were red lights.
As the people watched, two jet fighters tried to intercept the object.
They passed in front of it, at which time the UFO veered to the left and made a turn back, reducing its speed. The jets tried to intercept it three times, and that's when the UFO decreased its speed, almost stopping in mid-air.
One jet stationed itself near the UFO's right side and the other at its rear. Suddenly, the jet in back just disappeared on top of or inside the UFO. One witness who was watching with binoculars said he never saw the jet emerge from beyond the UFO.
The second jet remained very close to the right side of the object, looking very small in comparison. As the UFO flew a little to the west, the second jet also disappeared, apparently inside the UFO, and its engine noise stopped.
The object then began descending and came down very close to the ground over a small pond known as Saman Lake. It stood still in mid-air for a moment, then straightened its corners and gave off a brilliant flash of yellow light from the central ball of light, like an explosion, but without making any noise.
It then divided into two different and distinct triangular sections. The triangle to the right was illuminated in yellow and the other in red.
Then both shot away at great speed, one to the southeast, and the other to the northwest. Red sparks could be seen falling when the object divided itself.
A retired Army veteran living in the area said that at 8:20 p.m., a bunch of black helicopters arrived and flew over the Sierra Bermeja and the Laguna Cartagena areas without lights until midnight and appeared to be searching for something.
UFO researcher Jorgé Martin checked with all Puerto Rican and U.S. Government agencies that might have knowledge of the incident but all denied knowing anything about what happened. Martin said that a week later a U.S. Naval officer whom he could not identify confirmed all that had happened and said radar tapes had been sent to Washington, D.C. and that a lid of secrecy had been placed on the whole affair.
Sure buddy, whatever you say. I hate it when people ignorantly spout statements like the one above, it makes us all look foolish

Thanks. I have the book Night Siege by Hynek right in front of me. Judging by all the data I would guess it could be one of those cresent shaped boomerangs. see: "2010: Huge UFOs over Louisiana" in OP. Or a smaller variation of it. All of the "trained observers" (eg. Pilots, Cops, Engineers, Scientists, Doctors) agreed the object was "bigger than a football field."

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.
It's not Sci-Fi speculation.
Look up 'Metamaterials', and light bending/cloaking device. Although cloaking technology WAS Sci-Fi a little while ago, it isn't any longer.
And if humans can figure this stuff out in a few decades at our levels of know how and technology, it's a pretty safe bet ET (for want of a better moniker) have moved much further along the 'materials sciences' route than us...they have certainly moved beyond our present and rather limited comprehension of Physics and alternative energy sources / propulsion systems, as evidenced by radar tapes, and qualified sightings from professionals highlighted in this thread, who are trained to be familiar with Terrestrial craft and phenomena.
A good source of information on this subject, which features many of the cases mentioned in the OP, and features many high profile and professional folk giving testimony and relaying their encounters and experiences with these craft, is a documentary called 'I know what i saw (2009)'...google it, it's on YT in multipart format.
Much of what we think of as 'Sci-Fi' today, will be commonplace tomorrow.
