So please excuse me if this comes off as a stupid question but I can't come up with an answer for myself and so I turn to the experts...
Why do UFO's need lights on their crafts? I can understand that there could be many reasons for this. Signalling each other, communicating in a Morse code like fashion. Maybe even useful at their own base as a means to land, light up the area and so on.
But why here? Why in our skies? We have all seen the photos of earth from space and we are lit up like a Christmas tree at night. Even our aircraft don't use such bright lights while in flight but only when landing...at night.
And yet so many vids show UFO's lit up during the day, flashing lights at night etc. It's certainly not needed to see us from the sky and definitely not the best way to go unnoticed if that's the goal.
Anyways, just thought I'd ask others as to what their theories are concerning this. And they are theories because we certainly won't know for a fact until contact has been made and someone shouts "Dude! Turn off your brights!"
Peace and thanks to any input.

I don't know about the lights, but I've always wondered why no clothes. Surely the little guys get cold now and then...

ha, finaly someone asking the important questions.
the lights are simply there as a signal to get the camera out and start filming whilst shaking and struggling to remain in focus.
