It's an exercise in demonstrating sufficient margin for doubt.
UFO = Unknown.
I don't know what it was, but, if anyone wants to begin any sort of investigation, it's only proper to START with all the KNOWN phenomenon, optical
illusions, and other similar precedents already set.
The list o KNOWN phenomenon potentially culpable can be dauntingly ominous.
In the end, however, most people don't want to actually hear or know what it actually IS that they saw.
They just want validation for what they think they saw, because, as we can all plainly see, it's an old song that gets
sung tirelessly over and over and over ... "I know what I saw!"

I hope you realize you are behaving exactly like those people you mention, just in the opposite end of the spectrum.
in the end , just let people speak what they want. after all this is a forum not a research center for UFO Phenomena. They may be wrong , but you
maybe wrong too, so its arrogant to say one side is right and one side is wrong. This depend on BELIEF. if you believe UFO dont exist because of
(insert your reasoning) . still doesnt mean you are right.
you know , i hope you see the irony of your post saying people always sing "i know what i saw" , while you keep telling people they are wrong... off
course if you dont see it its understandable.. just like mr klass
to OP :
Radar anomalies happens , but not necesarily unexplainable.. some natural emanation or military emission like ECM can show up as anomalies on radar.
As for air traffic (civilian) , they usually only show planes with transponder active, some control tower got air search radar for non-transponder
aircraft but not all.
the term UFO is still means UNIDENTIFIED flying object. as long as the term UFO is used to refer an unknown anomaly then its a correct term. but if we
confuse the term UFO with Extra terrestrial craft then its not correct. There are NO proof of extra terrestrial craft visitation (yet), there are only
hypothesis and theories and maybe some myth/fantasy generated by hucksters..
but consider this facts...
- there are lot of CE3 cases but not a single one provide conclusive evidence
- there are lot of messages from "aliens" but not one makes any sense and some are outright lies/hoax
- there are lot of photos/media but not a single photo provide any damning evidence
- there are lot of radar anomalies detected (even sonar from Sub/Ship) but not a single one can be used as proof of aliens
its like these phenomena just want to make itself 'known' but never to the point of real proof-of-existence/disclosure. I suggest OP you read the
case files of UFO sightings/contacts and dont pick the best cases but see the patterns that emerge from all the cases you see..
there's a few researched that analyze the data and generate an interesting pattern of UFO CE1/CE2/CE3
- mistaken identity cases (usually CE1) are short time sighting durations, unknown cases are usually 10 minutes or longer
- UFO activity peak start from 10pm to midnight and then peaked again from 1am-3am. comparing the data from social activities, the peaks are opposite
of each other. at the UFO activity peak, the social activities of people are the lowest. (Data from FRENCH Cases/sightings and FRENCH people
there are more patterns thats very interesting , you can look it up on the web and study it.
just remember, never focus on 1 case or 1 type of evidence but ALWAYS look for patterns
