A good list to start, but I would have added:
1) stars and planets besides venus
People are often very convinced that stars that twinkle different colors are "alien spaceships". Any bright star or planet can be reported as a
2) meteors - My experience is that most people who see meteors recognize them as such. Nonetheless, every time there is a bright bolide in the sky,
the media will ALWAYS post a story like "What was that in the sky? A UFO?" and then go on to say that scientists believe it is a meteor.
3) Chinese/Thai "fire lanterns" - certainly are accounting for large numbers of "multiple UFO" sightings at night. Typically reported as orange or
reddish orbs. When there are three orbs the witness will typically report in amazement that they "formed a triangle". They will often flicker and then
It is my opinion that the study of UFOs would be advanced by eliminating all reports that are simply:
1) Lights in the night sky, including all videos of the same
2) Photographs and videos of "anomalys" where the witness didn't observe "anything unusual". This tends to imply the anomaly is probably a totally
normal object, like a bug or bird.
In other words about 99% of the stuff that gets posted on this site is "noise".
I can add a few more to the list.
1)Top secret military craft take the Lockheed SR-71 built way back in the 60s with an incredible speed of Mach 3, that's faster than most aircraft in
today's skies..........with it super high altitude too it accounted for numerous "UFO" sightings.
You also have the Stealth fighter.........again numerous sightings labelled "UFO"
There are probably a large number of UFO sightings today which can be attributed to secret aircraft being tested today.
2) Natural phenomena in the atmosphere
Too many to mention but for starters, Sprites,Eleves,Ice Pillars, Blue Jets, Ball Lightening, Earth quake lights.........and many more that scientists
haven't yet catalogued or studied.
3) Space junk........there is an amazing amount of space junk circulating our planet & some comes crashing back to Earth.
4)Missile tests........... most recently Russian Missiles which have created the much discussed "Spiral UFOs"
