Thanks Zero. I can really appreciate your Occum's Razor reference; especially, pertaining to matters that many often use it to contradict. I forgot how palatable disinformation makes dumbing-down.

Aside from hitting close to home (& the playoff reference), what I appreciate the most about this thread is that it got me to re-open my eyes & gravitate back to the 'little bit of substance in everything' philosophy.

Statistically speaking, there is reality in the conspiracies (pics/no-pics, empirical/anecdotal--whatever) discussed on this forum. The hardest part is not becoming so simultaneously jaded and numb from the inundation of common sensical explanations and extraneous nonsense, that one dumbs down enough quit paying attention.

As for the picture of the UFO, it immediately reminded me of the 80's film 'Runaway' starring Tom Selleck. The ufo looks like one of the robot spiders in that film, strange but true!

I saw that movie so many years ago and I have had it in my mind the latest three years.
Wanted to see it again but I could not remember the name of the movie or any actors, just had those blurry memories, so it has been impossible for me to find the movie and see it again.
You just made this year for me!

No problem

For some reason the combination of robot spiders and Tom Selleck's huge moustache just stuck in my mind all these years!

What the heck is "UFO Alert level 3"? Nice photo and witness reports though. Not really enough info to collate into much of a theory at this point though.

How is that not enough information? There are photos and a great deal of witness testimony and Mufon reports...

Next time please read the article before posting it. This is what it says.

Vandebergh used a 25 cm telescope with a video camera to get this shot; he tracked the telescope by hand using an ordinary finder ‘scope mounted on the side.

So unless people are developing built in telescopes it wasn't the ISS.

Didn’t a baby go missing during the same time in Missouri?
Just saying.

That's very interesting.i wonder if anyone had issues with their live stock?

I'm not buying any of it. First off, all these MUFON reports don't mean much really. Witnesses all report seeing some sort of triangular or boomerang shaped craft, which leads me to think it's a man-made object.

All of these witnesses, yet no one can snap a decent pic of it hovering low over cars?

Oh and about that pic- it looks nothing like what people are describing. It looks like an insect, but it doesn't matter really because the picture is completely taken out of context anyway. It could be anything. Might as well be of bird crap.

And as another poster above me mentioned: What in the heck is "UFO Alert 3"? Is this a joke?

What credible source is this story coming from?

Come on ATS-

I'm calling bunk on this. Sorry.

flying low over cars".... That does not sound like the ISS.

Lol, I guess it doesn't.

Very strange witness testimony's. Are the sightings still happening?

Are there any swamps near by? That's the usual claptrap we hear for this kind of thing isn't it?

I was hoping an ATS member would
come forth to tell us what is happening
there and if they had experienced anything.

That would be good, a first hand report.

There must be plenty of ATS members in that area.

Good call.

I suppose all the first hand witness accounts mean nothing and all the thousands of other reports all over the world reporting the same thing at one time or the other must mean that they too are lying and are in on this,and i suppose you might have problems reading because another member posted a link to a local news affiliate covering the story. There was a video posted but it was set to private view on youtube. How exactly can a organization like Mufon who tries to treat each sighting objectively and report in a professional matter mean nothing? IF anything were bunk sir i would say it is your reply...

They investigate reports of sightings yes, but they have nothing to go on here but testimonials, i could cal them up now and say i saw something, it doesnt mean anything from a "proof" point of view. As for all the different reports, without a pic we cant say what they might be seeing. My bet is on an led kite or remote control toy. That is why the sightings are all in a fairly localized place. It is probably some pranksters driving around freaking people out.

Thousands, eh?

I can read just fine. The local affiliate doesn't make this any more credible. I love how we hate the MSM and consider them the enemy, except when we need credibility for a UFO story that they happen to be reporting on.

Where are the pics of this object hovering low over cars if there were so many witnesses?

And who put Missouri on UFO alert level 3? What a hoot!

Again your reading skills not much of a strong suit for you,i said thousands at one time or another meaning past reports not just this incident. Meaning if it looks like a duck,quacks like a duck,well sir it might just be a duck.

posted on Oct, 9 2011 @ 07:06 PM

Sorry i can't stop laughing at the person who tryed debunking it as the ISS

some really wild debunking going on in here thats for sure,

Ok i have a few issues with this one...

Scary Alert Level 3 ?

After reading the article i thought WOW great it was low and sound like a very interesting craft, should be a great picture then huh... NO IT WASN'T, WHY? and wheres the rest of the peoples pictures it was a traffic jam correct? everybody in that traffic jam would have been hands free and had plenty of time to get a decent snap, the image we see is terrible and nothing like the description, this case is dead in the water & totally pointless with out better evidence,

all thos people not one decent picture ? id happily drop this story right here unless we get some more reports from other witnesses WITH pictures this time,

give me a break
Missourians do not get terrorized... we shoot to kill.
Not one person from the "Show Me" state, including me are going to be terrorized by anything shown here.
