Tons. Unless there is a local flap, where a lot of people are reporting things, very few people are enthusiastic about taking what is probably a very
personal experience and making it public. For all the reasons.
The "Smoking Gun Flying Saucer" photo could be in some old Grandfathers or Grandmothers closet right now and we'll never know about it.
Maybe, but I don't think so. There's a curious distancing effect that goes on with real UFOs. It's not easy but it's relatively common to be
able to get a useless far-away photo of a blob of light or a little shiny disc. The closer you get to it, though, the harder it is to come away with
a good photo.
There's the shock, of course, of having the thing in your face. Then there are the odd psychological and time shift effects. Your mind doesn't
work well. You get paralyzed. And naturally if the "aliens" grab you, they're not going to let you remember much if anything, and they're going
to directly mess up your photos. Why? Why should they care if you go home with an intact memory and some happy snaps of them hanging out with you,
showing you the hyperdrive engines and how they work? I don't know.
After pondering the various possibilities, I lean toward the idea that they're time travelers, and that any really good evidence of them could
potentially have a bad effect on their own future. So they're okay with you taking a few blurry photos and videos, but they can't let you get much
better than that. They'll stop you, and they're really good at it.
