I was having a ponder last night after noticing how the meteor, fireball or even UFO craze has hit ATS and a couple of questions came into my head.
Now, some people might get uppity over what I am about to ask, but believe me no hard intentions are meant, just simple outright questions to all of
you out there who have positive and constructive thoughts to share.
Since the meteor sighting over Chelyabinsk in Russia, quite a few reportings of new sightings have appeared here on ATS… Now whats strange about
that you may ask? Well nothing is strange until you see “mainly” where these sightings are taking place… Im not saying there are reports of
hundreds of sightings being reported here on ATS but just "mainly"
Yep, you guessed right, over the USA!
So, my questions to all of you are the following :
1. Is this just because the majority of people here on ATS are from the USA and American members are being more sensitive to this type of “meteor,
fireball, UFO” activity (and yes I know that the USA is a very large country with possibilities of observing more “sky” activity BUT… then
again so is The whole of Europe, Canada, coastal regions of Australia, Africa, Asia etc..)
2. Are people who are reporting “meteor, fireball” sightings on this forum just following the current trend (as was done for the guns issue) or
are they just letting their imagination go astray when they see something which they are unable to identify in the sky and call it “meteor,
fireball”? I have deliberately left out the word UFO as I personally think that “meteor and fireball” come into this category until correctly
And my last and most important question for members of the non American INTERNATIONAL ATS community living in the 195 other countries in the world (of
course it is understood that not all countries are represented on this forum for different Geo-political reasons) :
Have you heard of sightings, have you seen “Meteors, fireballs, UFOs” in the country where you are located and if so and you haven’t posted here
what would the reason be for not posting? (No links, No proof with images, afraid of debunking etc etc…?)
(It would be good to know the stats as to just which percentage of each country are represented as members here on this forum?)
