I have no clue whether these are authentic, but I wanted to give my opinion regarding the symmetry of the object in question. In my opinion it does
not look proportional. The left side is more rounded while the right side seems to have less mass, and this difference is quite noticeable. I suppose
that the viewing angle may be profile instead of head-on, which could mean we are seeing the cockpit portion, if this is authentic, towards the right
side. So I will offer that counterpoint to my claim.
The bottom of the craft however cannot be explained away, in my opinion, as easily. It is quite unsymmetrical, and I do not believe the viewing angle
would affect this. But again I will offer up a counterpoint to my claim, which is that if this were a real extraterrestrial craft, by no means does it
have to be symmetrical or proportionate. This would be the case if fluid dynamics did not come into play, due to some other mechanism of action than
a propellent of some sort. Such as modifying the gravitational field around the craft.
This is just one of the inherent problems with the field of ufology, which is most claims cannot be verified. However, it is possible to utilize the
same method that I take advantage of in sasquatch research, which starts by compiling a huge database of information regarding witness reports, and
then listing, from most frequent to less frequent, the characteristics that the reports share regarding the look and behavior of the supposed
Now let it be known that I believe in sasquatch because I've seen one, but I have never seen a UFO. I've seen something strange in the sky, which
disappeared after I turned away for only a minute, and 5 minutes later a large cargo plane flew overhead, at an extremely low altitude. This was
before I joined the USAF, and at that time I knew very little about airplanes. To this day I know that the initial bright light I saw was not a plane
heading straight in my direction, and I also feel that the cargo plane was diverted to look for what I saw, which was probably picked up on radar.
I can say now that the plane was an US Army plane, and looked like a C-27. I never really saw these planes being used while I was in the air force, so
I assume they are mainly army aircraft. I also remember that the altitude the plane was flying at is not a standard altitude for an aircraft like
that, and given the direction it was heading, which was NNW, there was not even a nearby runway for landing, considering the altitude, which was
probably well below 2000 feet. It was doing approximately 180 knots, from what I can remember, which is well below the aircraft spec speed of
somewhere in the range of 330 knots. But I was still just a kid at the time, and that is from my best recollection. The object I saw beforehand was an
extremely bright light, and it was at a similar altitude to the plane that came not long afterward.
My point is that I cannot say I believe in extraterrestrial craft visiting earth, because I have never seen one. And when comparing something like
UFO's with something like sasquatch, I think people are much more apt to misidentify an aircraft as opposed to a large, lumbering, bipedal animal. I
am certain of this, taken as an average of all sightings. Military aircraft have fooled people for decades, and the public probably remains virtually
unaware of the upcoming generation of military flying vehicles. Just look at the huge amount of reports when the stealth aircraft, both the bomber and
fighter, began flying over US airspace. That is why I am hesitant to label anything as extraterrestrial, because we do not know what the military has
at this point, and given their ability for secrecy, and the history of UFO reports, I am certain that their craft get mistaken for aliens on a regular
I also know that the average person cannot tell much regarding altitude, airspeed, etc., when they see an aircraft, because that is specialized
knowledge, and you must be a pilot, or must have spent ample time around aircraft, to have a good guess as to these parameters.
