"Lights" on UFO'S? Under, around, above and below?

Excitedly...my 1st thread.

Why do UFO's NEED lights if they are so advanced and interdimentional or interplanetary? Occurs to me... to be so advanced, they shouldnt need lighting of any kind to light their way. Lighting would seem to me to be primitive.

Hence...then perhaps all the UFO's we see...are simply "earth-ships" or are piloted by the human race and military in secret...whom definately need to see... and need light. I wouldnt assume advanced technologies need any sort of illumination or markings for any reason at all.


Just a thought. Yours, please? Thanks very much.

The light we see may be part of the ships drive.?
They dont want someone flying into them ?
Look at my lights im an airplane ?

Just some what if's .

I agree, whats the point!
We use them so other craft can spot our position.

Also why do they always seem to travel in a linear fashion.
Surely any civilization that was so advanced in anti gravity/space travel, woudn't need to travel in a straight line.

Everytime i see a ufo traveling in a linear mode i scratch my head and think, "hmmmm, thats so oldschool!"

Intersting to see what others think on this.

Cheers

Same reason why people put neon lights on their cars....to show off their ride!!!


But it could also be a form of communication or spacecraft identification, you never know

For them to have the need for lighting for any reason...seems pointless with their advancement.

Agreed.

And furthermore: Why would anyone necessarily assume that they use lights for the same reasons we use lights? We have no idea what they're doing here, so how could we have any idea about the fashion in which they do it? Maybe they're for communications so that they don't expose themselves to us through radio spectrum? Maybe they spell out "Happy to be here!" in some alien language? (Why would they do that? Who cares?) Maybe we perceive only the colors visible to us, but there are patterns that only they recognize in an invisible (to us) sub-spectrum? Maybe they're beacons so that the humongous cloaked mothership that we DON'T see won't run into to them or drive over them?

I've heard this question (at last count) approximately 400 times. The answer is: Who the hell knows? We see them; they're there; they use their lights. What difference could it conceivably make to us?

Yup. They should walk in the dark inside their ship or always wear infrared goggles instead.

To the one asking why they travel in straight line, do you expect them to travel in zigzag instead? Traveling in straight line is the easiest way to travel. They don't really have to travel in zigzag or curved lines just to look sophisticated.

There are a lot of assumptions here. A man in 1885 might say the same thing about the ISS.
What we are seeing could be interpreted as light by our brains. Or perhaps they might be using properties of light of yet we're unaware.

Imagine an internet connection that truly is at light speed. . .now THAT would be a connection! 186,000 miles per second is fast.

Sometimes, to find what you're looking for, you gotta use methods under which is was "lost".

Thats ging some...assuming they need to SEE at all...or even have EYES for that reason...maybe they have other ways...like a blind person sees? Lights seem un-necessary.

See this image is this UFO using lights or is It the result of the propulsion system used, same tech as the sun

Maybe they have to vent the radiation in the form of light, they like to use spotlights just like hunters do, or the lights are part of the propulsion. According to this guy you can bend space with light, so he is attempting to build a time tube so to speak.

Well, I hear where youre comming from, and honestly, no one REALLY knows what they are for, but I serious doubt that they use the lights for the same puropses humans do. I agree with the one poster that most likely it is a byproduct of their ships propulsion system/drive.

For example, if one looks at the photos of the Ship that shut down Chineese airport Xiangshan something, last year in 2010, you will notice light emmiting from its base. However it is not foucuses as a search beam would be and is pretty diffuse. When it is hover the light is projected downward, when it is in motion the light trails to the rear, as if it was using the light itself to move around!

Also, lets not assume that aliens even see in the same visible light spectrum we do. Im sure some of our technology that emmits light on non-visible spectrums would appear very strange to things that could see it and they would wonder what its purpose was, but to us it would simply be a waste product of our technology.

As a stretch...the ships could be partially alive, some sort of biomechanical contraption, not too intelligent in and of itself, but ideal as a symbiote for the ships driver...the ship would emit light similar to the way some squid do our other sea creatures, light isnt always artificial, it is necessary for some life forms. Just a thought!

I dont think they have any smoke, jet, pulse type propulsion system.

Seeing a magnet working...if they'd use that? They would have no flame, light, smoke or sound really...just ZIP back and forth in a buzz.

Take two magnets and hold them close together. Hear anything? No. See anything? No. Just ZIP!

I think we must assume interplanetary or dimensional 'tourists" would have some form like the aforementioned.
