Quote from: Uncle Duke on January 16, 2019, 02:07:42 PMYes, he was on with Knapp back last summer. Knapp asked his typical softball questions, didn't challenge the guy's story in any way.
Quote from: albrecht on January 19, 2019, 10:55:25 AMWow. More releases of certain subject government and contractors were working on. Including wormholes, UFOs, other dimensions, etc.https://fas.org/irp/dia/aatip-list.pdfhttps://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/head-of-pentagons-secret-ufo-office-sought-to-make-evidence-public/2017/12/16/90bcb7cc-e2b2-11e7-8679-a9728984779c_story.html?utm_term=.9d7e40e5cfef https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/3kg8v5/the-governments-secret-ufo-program-funded-research-on-wormholes-and-extra-dimensions
Quote from: AC400KICK on April 29, 2019, 08:46:46 AMIf you want to see hovering UFOs and you are in NYC or the surrounding area, we have regular meetings every Friday and Saturday night starting at 8:00 pm at Cleopatraâ€™s Needle behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th Avenue in Yorkville, Manhattan. The groupâ€™s leader is Julio Barriere and he has a fleet of benevolent UFOs that follow him all around the World. If you are out of the area and ever find yourself in NYC, we will be there provided the weather holds up. New faces are always welcome.
Quote from: art_smoked_my_cigarettes on May 17, 2019, 10:53:14 PMThis has been driving me insane for years...Often, when I go outside at night for a trip to flavour country, I'll look up to the stars. Every once in a while, I'll see a very bright, seemingly low-flying, non-blinking white light lazily cruising across the sky. Usually west to east. I've heard every "rational" explanation for what it could be from ball lightning to the ISS. I don't buy any of it.Have any of you ever seen this action?What are your theories if you have?It drives me mental.
Quote from: Uncle Duke on May 17, 2019, 11:07:19 PMAre satellites one of the rational explanations you don't buy?
Quote from: art_smoked_my_cigarettes on May 17, 2019, 11:12:11 PMYes, simply because the light appears to be at a lower altitude than commercial jets.
Quote from: Robert on May 18, 2019, 01:11:03 PMHow do you judge its altitude?
Quote from: albrecht on May 19, 2019, 03:46:38 PMOne time I had an epic "sighting." The congruence of approaching twilight, angle of approach, a sporting event, and a slight astigmatism caused me to see the Goodyear Blimp as a UFO. Really freaky because the direction it was flying, randomly seeing it when stuck in traffic on highway fly-over, and the setting of the sun/angle and haze only showed a silver 'disc' moving suspiciously slow- compared to aircraft or even traffic. Was so weird. No booze, no drugs, just stuck in traffic around 7pm and saw this silvery deal out of the corner of my eye that wasn't really moving. I figured out what it was but, for a second, I really had a HS WTF is that moment and did a double-take.
Quote from: 14 on May 19, 2019, 12:48:29 AMIf the altitude actually is low, it's probably law enforcement checking for illegal pot fields or doing routine fly overs. Especially if it's always at the same time and even visible on days when real stars can't be seen due to haze or clouds.If you are near the foot hills or if a hill blocks your horizon, then the altitude could be higher than it seems, in which case it must be a satellite.Why don't you invest in a telescope, since you have the advantage of knowing the thing will re-appear? And, try to view the thing from other locations and compare notes. Also, pay attention during the new moon and full moons in order to view the thing in different light.If you can drive nearer to its starting point, you might find an airfield. I suppose you mean it's really moving. Because I'm sure you understand that the whole sky kind of rotates a few degrees every few minutes.
Quote from: SredniVashtar on May 19, 2019, 04:16:43 PMI used to see airships quite often when I was growing up. I can't remember the last time I saw one, they must be a thing of the past. I think it was Goodyear. Also Concorde, at about 7pm, and what a bloody racket that made when it flew over, absolutely deafening.
Quote from: ItsOver on May 19, 2019, 04:22:34 PMI can completely see this happening. Most folks don't see blimps that often, so when you do see one even in pretty good conditions, if it's far enough way, you can, at a minimum, do a double take. Certain aircraft, like the A-10, the Rutan VariEze, and, of course, the B-2, among others, have caused me to wonder for awhile when I've see them in the air, at times. Their silhouettes are different from usual aircraft and you're just not seeing them all the time, like 737s.

Quote from: art_smoked_my_cigarettes on May 19, 2019, 04:14:13 PMI wouldn't say I'm judging the altitude, just the perception of the light seems lower than commercial aircraft.
Quote from: Kidnostad3 on May 19, 2019, 10:01:54 PMAny aircraft would be required to display port and starboard (red and green) running lights and a white or red strobe light at altitude unless conditions dictate otherwise. Apparently the white light you saw was not strobing. I have seen such steady white lights traveling on a constant bearing and assumed they were satellites.
Quote from: Robert on May 20, 2019, 04:27:35 PMIt's a testament to the unpopularity now of the idea that UFOs are mysterious nuts-and-bolts things that Stanton Friedman's death didn't even get mentioned in this thread.
Quote from: ItsOver on June 27, 2019, 10:31:14 AMFor the next time you're passing through Pascagoula, MS. I've actually passed by there a number of times on I-10. It's a nice place if you like desolate looking wetlands.https://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2019/06/24/ufo-alien-abduction-story-commemorated-by-mississippi-historical-marker/1545800001/
Quote from: Uncle Duke on June 27, 2019, 12:03:57 PMThe markers you usually see in that part of the country are homemade memorials denoting where some poor redneck bought it. The memorials will include the deceased's name, and last words, often "Hey ya'll, watch this!"
