And we are no match for it. If people knew ET was up there buzzing around, many would be terrified, thinking we are being invaded. There could
be world wide panic, causing untold damage. They're going to cover it up as long as possible.
............................Just waiting for the ones who will come, claiming to know ET's plan. You know they'll be along shortly.

You confuse UFO with ET.
UFO = unknown phenomenon.
Unknown Phenomenon can include ET in there somewhere, if you want it to, but, until there's data enough to draw any conclusion on what this phenomenon
is, it stands as simply Unknown
UFOs can get along quite swimmingly fine without the requirement for ET.
Weather shows up on radar too. What do you think your weather man on the news uses?
Thus, for all we know, this Unknown Phenomenon could include and be attributable to natural phenomenon we as of yet have any understanding of.
Secrecy? Sure. It's a no brainer because the general population are idiots, and if they get told there's UFOs buzzing around in the skies all the
time, they might also make the mistake of UFO=Aliens. Certainly fringers, and nutters might get pushed over the edge. Nutters going all nutter in
public can create sympathetic responses with regular folk taking a dip in nutter pond.
Why risk public disorder over something that's pretty much nothing as the phenomenon has shown no marked serious danger to public safety?
I, however, also agree with Hopechest. Most people would simply go about their usual business.
Hell, even if aliens we invading some localized area of the planet and not a threat to other places, most people would certainly be interested, but,
all in all go about their regular business until there actually IS a threat.
It's a mostly harmless mysterious phenomenon.
