While that's fun and all, the following thread already posted as a sticky in the UFO forum may be of greater assistance to folks:

Is it a star, planet, aircraft lights, satellite or.........a UFO? Find out here!
by member greeneyedleo.

It's quite thorough and helpful in providing links to resources for identifying satellites, aircraft, sensory illusions, meteorological phenomenon, stars, planets and many other items of interest that often get misidentified for something else.




Further, there's nothing wrong with people saying "I don't know".
The problem comes when people say "I don't know, therefore, Aliens, Demons, Angels, Spirits, Gods, etc".

As if modern UFOlogy isn't already a circus clown sideshow filled to overflowing with comedians like The Ancient Aliens TV show, Steven Greer, Billy Meier, the Romanek guy that just got arrested for child porn, every ThirdPhaseOfMoon youtube channel generating content for clicks, cults, charlatans, attention seekers, disenfranchised religious nuts, and the mentally ill?

We've already the weather balloon chart just posted.

Interest in the field, for the most part, is already a joke.
It would have been easier to just toss up any old Youtube video link and laugh at that.

schmeh.

The OP's chart (being as light-hearted as it is) fails to mention one of the main mi-identifications -- and that is a plane in the distance (sometimes 25+ miles) on approach, and heading generally toward the observer with its landing light(s) on.

A plane like this can look like a stationary (or extremely slow moving) bright non-flashing light in the distance, usually nearer to the horizon rather than overhead. It would look like it was hovering or moving slowly (sometimes a bit side-to-side slowly) because it would be fly generally toward the observer.

Then, as the plane turns away from the observer, that speed that it appear to be moving suddenly increases. Even that turn could occur more than 10 miles away, so the observer may not necessarily ever hear the plane.

So the observer sees a bright non-flashing light that appears to be hovering and maybe rocking side-to-side slowly, then suddenly moves more quickly away to one side, all the time not hearing it. A sighting described as this could seem fantastic to some, but it could very well be just a regular passenger airline plane.

Having a sense of humor and enjoying a good laugh, I gave you a S&F.

I refuse to take life too seriously, as I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get out of it alive.
