How do you determine if the object is a identified known object like a aircraft,blimp,stealth blimp, drone,meteor,optical illusion,atmospheric phenomena,light source from a human device,reflections/lens glares,CGI etc?

Maybe you should change it to identify an extra terrestrial craft and get ready for the flames! We all know UFO is a term used for flying saucers but the exact use of the term does refer to unidentified for the U. Which I see some have already pointed out.
UFO means "Unidentified Flying Object". By that logic, everything that you can't identify that is flying is a UFO. So I guess that's my criteria for a legit UFO
Pi**es me off when people hear UFO and automatically think aliens!!!!

LOL. So in mass media and popular culture the term UFO has never been used to imply aliens and flying saucers? Of course it has. That is what I was referring to. If you see a book with UFO across the title what do you think it might be about? Aliens and flying saucers. To the general public, mass media and popular culture UFO has a broader use than perhaps it does on ATS.
Just as an example this thread title. Not an exact correct scientific use of the term UFO but we all know exactly what the author means don't we?

0 to 8000+ mph and G forces that would kill a human being.
No sonic boom. No hailing the flight communication towers.
Going into restricted airspace and not be shot down.

Technology such as this is not possible with our current understanding of science and physics, we simply don't have it and can't do it. With such an anti-gravity system g forces could be eliminated so a biological occupant could survive.
