    There have always been misidentifications by inexperienced observers. The whole phenomenon can't be dismissed on just that.

    there r also many stars that had a good view of us in the past, & aliens around them could detect big collisions in the Solar system.

    So this further strengthens the case for ET visitors not that it was really needed.
    Btw as an aside, back in the '60s new Israeli pilots were told to go up after dark and not look down until they had reached an altitude of 50,000 fleet. They saw "the whole of Israel a pearly white while the arab world was in glum darkness, with here and there only the faintest glimmer of a light." I tend to doubt they still do that, as the Nile Delta is ablaze. In fact as far back as 1971 it was said that, after Egypt began to derive electricity from the Aswan dam, "Cairo is ablaze in light."

    Doesn't seem very promising. Too close to the zone of excessive flux; add that to tidal locking and it's probably uninhabitable.

    It's a fallacy to think alien life would be more moral or inherently wiser than us, especially if it's at our current phase of development.

    How human to think we might be the most ethical and moral species in the universe across billions of galaxies and billions of billions of billions of star systems they likely contain... I can see them hating us already...

    But do you think we are more wise and moral now than we were 2,000 years ago?

    It wasn't more than 100 years ago that German soldiers were mowing down Soviet soldiers and civilians because they didn't consider them their equal and could to with them as they please with no chance of repercussions via any international agreement Germany had signed... if you asked a German Nazi they would likely say a single German would be worth 10,000 Soviets, and that killing them is similar to killing animals that are a problem like rats in a grain store...

    And Germany was part of the self proclaimed first world... the civilised world... yet it seems they are able to commit unspeakably immoral acts because they don't give those they oppose the same rights they believe they have to take land and resources like colonial european powers have been doing for the last 500 odd years.

    Any alien life that actually comes to us is probably going to look at us and wonder if we are a plague or a blessing the way we are destroying this planet I would guess the former. Mr Smith is right... in many ways we are a disease...

    Indeed, we shouldn't expect the "intelligent designers" who created us, among many others out there, to be less intelligent than their imperfect creation.

    Smile No species, even if intelligent, is initially all-knowing and all-wise. ETs were probably just as bad when they were beginners.

    @ starman

    There was programme on TV, about pascagoula incident. And as you said this incident remains very puzzling. As unlike some others, there seems absolutely no motive for those involved, to go to police and report it. They were at the time, not book writers or TV personality.

    They are not pilots or police or astronauts or politicians or book sellers or TV film makers, who may benefit by false reporting. And they did not need to go to police, if involved in trouble. There are baffling cases.

    A fair and reasonable assumption but not certainly true... but we are not talking about all extraterrestrial life, we are talking about life able to get to us.

    Now if we were to send a group of people through space it is more likely to be a group of professionals like pilots and engineers and a doctor and a cook etc etc ie practical people who would be useful to improve the quality of food and nutrition for the crew no matter where they go, they need beings to fly the craft in space and possibly in air or water or other liquids... they will need crew that can maintain the engines and power supply and computers that run the ship.

    It is a bit like assembling a landing party on Star trek except you don't select nobodies whose purpose is to die and create tension, and the aliens are not just really hot women painted green or red for the captain to seduce and sleep with.

    Odds are their first selection for scouting missions wont be their best philosophers and culture experts... the closest they might send is a communications expert...

    What I am trying to say is that the aliens in a space ship might be like a family in a camper van on holiday... dad might barely be able to fix the ship himself and when certain parts are damaged or destroyed they might be as unable to fix it as we are...

    What sort of moral superiority are you going to expect from such a group?

    Of course they might rely on an AI main computer system to solve their problems of navigation and ship repair... some sort of 3D printer technology, and useful technical information could be stored on their computers... the aliens themselves might be as dumb as the average teenager is now... ask them a question and they check Twitter or Google or Wiki... or they don't know.

    Blum's Beyond Earth has an account of that. As a policeman said at the time: "Those guys are either telling the truth or they should be in Hollywood."

    Any alien civilization able to come here would've almost certainly determined Earth is inhabited well before the first arrival. Considering the longterm importance of interaction with another civilization, they wouldn't send people or entities likely to screw up. This doesn't mean they would be "moral," invariably--many reported ETs are not--but everything would be planned carefully in advance.

    But the people they send would be on a mission... in fact perhaps several missions with open goals and with secret goals, based on why they are travelling.

    If they have solved the problem of generating power then a decent source of hydrogen might be all they need... they could build cities on the moons of Jupiter or Saturn and use the central planet for their fuel and power generation needs and build underwater cities on the icy moons or underground bunker cities on the rocky moons...

    Or do they need meat... or are they lonely and want to interact with sentient beings that don't think the way they do...

    Are the logical like Vulcans or emotional and preachy like the Americans...

    If they are here for food then what sort of moral superiority do they need... when we kill the first one we see, that would be all the justification they need to wipe out the pest that is damaging their grain store... we have seen how dangerous disease is... a properly manufactured disease designed to be airborne and vastly more contagious... it wont even need to be lethal... just something that makes you infertile would do... but then we could keep going for a long time on already donated sperm in sperm banks, but if it effects male and females then that could be it... one generation and we are gone.

    No good evidence for this. Cattle mutilation cases are numerous but little is actually taken and none of it prime beef.

    Generally the phenomenon is rather secretive.

    The former I'm pretty sure.

    They've probably known about us for millennia, and have intervened in subtle ways albeit only in relatively recent times. I don't think ET created our species.

    Earlier, astrobiologists at Albion College in Michigan (USA) found new evidence that life appeared on Earth as a result of the fall of celestial bodies. They exposed the glycolaldehyde samples to a shock pressure comparable to that of a comet impact. It turned out that the substance, which is a precursor of amino acids and the sugar ribose, retains its structure and integrity even under such extreme conditions. This confirms the theory that organic substances necessary for the emergence of life could have got to the Earth along with cosmic bodies, having “survived” the collision with the planethttps://lenta.ru/news/2020/10/30/planet/

    We have no idea what their dietary needs are... for all we know they might have taken parts we don't even understand in our primative level... we are still learning new things about the human body for goodness sake...

    The former I'm pretty sure.

    There is insufficient information to be sure about anything... your comment is illogical....  🖖

    More like you hope... as do I.

    They've probably known about us for millennia, and have intervened in subtle ways albeit only in relatively recent times. I don't think ET created our species.

    They likely observed us long enough to know we are fucking mental and are probably now monitoring our progress and hoping we kill ourselves before we start really expanding into space and killing others.

    This confirms the theory that organic substances necessary for the emergence of life could have got to the Earth along with cosmic bodies, having “survived” the collision with the planet

    Yeah, but that is useless too... the fact that life could have developed elsewhere is just a cop out... I mean to come from somewhere else means it has to have developed somewhere else... but if it could have developed somewhere else and arrived here could it not also have developed here too... it just sounds unnecessary... are they saying life could have developed on a comet or asteroid in space or on a planet that the life survived the destruction of and then landed on earth to restart development from acids and chemicals into actual life with a water rich environment...

    Sounds like a circular argument that is pointless.

    The astronomical evidence of basically variants of the Earth being very numerous guarantees that there are intelligent species
    in large numbers out there. So the question still remains, why no signals are arriving to the Earth. If there was a scifi-like
    space-traveling collective out there, it would produce signals like one of the radio observatory arrays, that is from multiple
    sources at once and giving the combined signal much higher chance of not being lost in the noise, even if very weak on arrival.
    And the Earth observatories would be ideal tools to pick up these signals. But we have nothing.

    At the same time we are supposed to believe that UFOs are arriving on Earth all the time and both hiding from us and being hidden
    by the Earth's governments. The ultimate tinfoil hat conspiracy theory. Regular visitation that is being hidden. I guess that
    would include all the astrophysicists since surely they must be getting all sorts of signals. The problem with such tinfoil is that
    way too many humans have to be acting in concert to make such information control possible. Information about some special
    ops activity in various hot zones can be controlled. But that is not trivially true for any size of coverup involving civilians.

    The other fatal flaw in this tinfoil theory is lack of motive. What would be the point of hiding the aliens? Global panic? Why?
    If anything a cosmic threat would be a great pretext to get that one world government with totalitarian characteristics that
    many global elites pine for. We see with the US that a foreign "threat" is central to its self-identity and order. Thus we have
    fiction about Putin's election meddling and the threat from Iran. Always some threat to America from somewhere. How convenient.
    So hiding UFOs from the public is not something the elites (most of them anyway) would do.

    Talk about a failure of imagination--advanced ETs still communicating like we do. Even Sagan had doubts about SETI yielding results.

    by the Earth's governments.

    UFOs aren't "hiding" from us--or else there wouldn't be a UFO phenomenon--just not letting the masses be certain they're real, yet. A slow process of acclimation has been underway for some time.

    Actually it's not difficult because ETs themselves don't want to be revealed openly now. No doubt many people were privy to ULTRA in WWII yet the secret was kept not only during the war but for 30 years afterwards i.e. long after there was any strong reason to keep it.

    Laughing While I'm in full agreement that ET could facilitate rise of a global totalitarian regime, it's too early for that.  There's a difference between panic (hysterical, irrational behavior, based on fear of the unknown) and a realization that Earth must accept unity and discipline to meet a great outside challenge (which are perfectly rational). The point of gradual acclimation is to reduce fear of the unknown, hence ensure a rational reaction. Revealing ET without lengthy acclimation would only make an awful mess of everything. The Alien Grand Design develops these ideas at great length btw.)
