I've only bothered to tell my close family, there's certainly no point posting on here, even if you did walk around with a HD cam superglued to your
head and managed to capture half an hour of HD quality footage of the UFO, it would be shouted down as faked or obvious CGI.
I don't blame people for doing that, i've done it myself to some really suspect videos i've seen, but supported other videos and reports, but the
truth is, by accident or by design there are a lot of apparent loonies and hoaxers who for some bizarre reason seem to get a kick out of hoaxing this
stuff...so people are bound to be sceptical.
It's understandable, annoying as hell if you're the one trying to relate something genuinely strange, but that's life.
I saw one myself only last week actually, and cannot prove a damn thing, no pictures, no video, no other witnesses (as far as i know)..but frankly i
couldn't care less about convincing others or examining what i saw in minute detail..i can do without the aggro and the raised blood pressure having
to wade through and posts from both genuine sceptics and deliberately hostile or patronising people.
It's enough for me to be pleased that i saw what i saw.
The UFO 'sightings and reporting' era is coming to an end IMO. Technology and software enable convincing hoaxes to be made in a bedroom by someone
with little skill or experience in an hour or so, while at the same time someone who manages to capture something odd in the sky decides to tell the
world about his or her sighting, takes the video, uploads it to the web and then the toing and froing, and endless circular and useless debate begins
and goes on and on with only irritation as a reward.
For that reason, reporting UFO sightings even with quality HD video footage becomes a pointless exercise in not only having to convince naturally
sceptical people who didn't see what you may have seen, but also to convince them the video you have is not a fake or hoax...and for what?
A pat on the back or a few 'Ohhhs and Ahhhh's? For the headaches and hoops you have to jump through, there really isn't any point.
Unless there is corroborating, official evidence of what you see, in the form of aircraft or ground radar, or many, many unrelated people seeing and
reporting the same thing you saw, i'd say just tell people who know you're not a loon and who trust you, your family and friends, and leave it at
