Do you believe in UFOs & flying saucers ?

Have you every seen an unidentified flying object?

A UFO of course is just an aerial phenomenon that you can't explain (hence unidentified), & probably not at all connected to little green men from Mars.

So what are UFOs and have you ever seen something in the sky that you couldn't explain?

In the past many people have mistaken aircraft, weather balloons, silver party balloons, and even bright planets in the night sky as UFOs, but of course under scrutiny they usually have a rational & logical explanation. More recently drones have been mistaken as UFOs.

Then in the last month we've had video clips released from the Pentagon actually showing real UFOs filmed darting around at amazing speeds & doing manouvers that would be impossible for any manned craft to do. The G forces would be so powerful as to kill any human occupants, so what was witnessed by the US Navy pilots and the aircraft carrier radar?

Are UFOs terrestrial or extraterrestrial craft?

Illusions or really there, imagination or reality?

What are UFOs !

Many years ago I saw something very strange in my housing estate. Myself and my friend were standing outside his house one evening when a hole opened up in the clouds and an object came down and shone a light on one of the houses. It stayed there for about 10 seconds and then went back up in the sky and the hole closed up again. This was before we had camera phones unfortunately.

No. In the sense that I don't "believe in" the postman, but I have a fair idea he turns up most mornings.

Ditto.

Wonder when we'll get to Mars?

This. UFO doesn't necessarily have to mean alien in origin. Plenty of things out there that we, the general public, don't know about. That's not conspiracy, that's just common sense. Of course there are government projects, private projects, etc that are purposefully kept top secret.

That being said, if there are actually any species alien to planet Earth reading this right now, give me a call please cos I don't relate to Homo sapiens at all! Think I'm probably from Uranus. Just don't abduct me or probe me anally or anything like that, that's all I ask! I just want to be friends!!

That's a multi-layered question.

We'll just take it as how you meant it. Do I believe flying saucers have visited earth? No. Do I believe life lives outside of our solar system and has the means to make a spacecraft that might resemble one and is capable of long-distance space travel? Sure.

Any video I’ve seen of supposedly UFO’s are not very clear and questionable to say the least. I don’t know what videos you’re looking at to convince you otherwise.

I believe that any alien civilization, capable of interstellar travel, will not be flying saucer-shaped thingies around our skies.

Plus I rather doubt they would want to actually get in contact with us based on how violent we are. Let's face it, if an alien was discovered today, especially in 'Murica, it'd be carted off to some place against its will never again to see the light of day; all in the name of 'science'.


Then again maybe I've watched too many movies.. .. ..
