About Flying Saucers, Aliens, And Trends In UFO Sightings
Flying Saucers Or Alien Spaceships?
Theories put forward by scientists are more credible and acceptable to most of us than theories generated as a result of mere speculation, as scientists always follow a logical system of deducing, based on available evidence alone.
Scientists believe that when large quantities of dust in the atmosphere gets trapped by air currents up there, and when other conditions interact, a whirlpool effect is created.
When this occurs the dust particles concentrate in the center, giving the illusion of disc-like objects flying around.
They go on to say that multiple images could be formed creating an impression of "alien spaceships" flying in formation.
Unidentified Flying Objects
An Unidentified Flying Object At Last!
The only time I ever spotted a flying saucer happened dozens and dozens of years ago.
It was saucer shaped for a few fleeting moments only. Mind you, it happened in broad daylight.
The unidentified flying object was circling, slowly, and the diameter of each circle it traversed was less than the diameter of the previous one. It was apparently zeroing in to the center.
Continued focus revealed that it's shape was not round. Aided by an optical instrument it did not take too long for me to realize that it had wings ... and a beak as well!
Alien Spaceship? My Foot!
It was a terrible blow to me! Especially because the next day's newspapers will not carry the heading "Fifteen Year Old Spots Flying Saucer"
Instead the heading would read "Fifteen Year Old Spots Hawk!" And that kind of news would hardly generate any specific interest at all.
What's the big deals anyway? Even a five year old can spot a hawk! I was really disappointed! But how on earth did it appear to be round initially? It was my imagination of course.
Being conditioned to hearing reports of flying "saucers," is what makes everything in the sky which is not an aeroplane or helicopter appear round at first, and also conveniently unidentifiable.

Latest UFO Sightings - The New Trend Catches On!
Reports coming in from various corners of the world from time to time have all had some sort of consistency most of the time, of course with some exceptional cases where the fictitious elements are easily identifiable.
As in all other fields, fiction tries to creep in at every level and this topic is definitely not less conducive for that kind of thing.
From a different perspective, if some loons get set in spreading ideas that flying saucers, whilst retaining the generic name of saucers, need not necessarily be round in shape, that they could even be shaped like a heart, or a diamond, or a spade, then before long, confirmed reports will come flooding in from all parts of the world that "saucers" shaped like diamonds, hearts, spades, hammers, sickles, and jukeboxes have been spotted!
Another Flying Saucer?
Reported UFO Sightings
These strange things that have been hovering above our heads for centuries have caused a lot of concern amongst many.
Fear, awe, curiosity and superstition have been woven into explanations originating from many lands and in several languages.
Even drawings of spacemen and spacecrafts have been discovered in ancient caves. Nobody knows what they really are. Most probably they are from a different time and space.
The questions asked are, why do they not land on earth and attempt to make communication? From which part of the universe are they?
Are there many locations in the universe from which they come? If their technology is so very highly evolved, don't they pose a threat to all of us?
So far space exploration has not yielded any solid clues to the origins of these beings, their tasks, their technology, their schedules and so on.

The Future - NASA And Intelligent Life
The role played by NASA in conquering space, the highlight of which being the historic moon landing, certainly did brighten up the future of the denizens of this planet.
If intelligent life does exist on other planets, one would wonder how intelligent they would be.
Would they be intelligent enough to understand the great benefits of peace ... universal peace ... or will they just fall short and consider hostilities towards their fellow occupants of the universe?
Will the very same intelligence that they use to harness the laws of nature and defy gravity, and construct vehicles capable of transporting them through space and probably through time too ... will that very same intelligence be supportive of peace or of conquest?
Surely we would not know. All we could do is to wait ... wait and see.
