The Cheers Magazine “ UFOs: Fact or Fiction ? “
” So, UFOs, are they just the thing of modern myth, or is there something deeper that can suggest that we are not alone? I am going to leave the jury out on this one. I think the belief in UFOs depends on the person. Although most (if not all) sightings, abductions and communications have logical explanations behind them, you can’t beat a good conspiracy, and people are going to believe in them no matter what scientists and the like say ” (extract from article).
ufodigest.com ” Perception versus Realities “
” When I saw the bright white light it was like a ball of light. When I got my binoculars out it still looked like a ball of light, why? The craft was huge and the landing lights were in the clouds. The Huge white/yellow lights were so bright it made the red/green lights not visible at all. All I saw was the huge white-yellow lights! But there was another factor, WIND!
The wind was blowing away from me. So the noise at that elevation was blowing away from me. I heard nothing! It was not until the aircraft turned and the plane actually headed to land that I actually saw the red and green lights. This not only shocked me but also opened my eyes so to speak as to the mistaken identity of what my eyes were seeing ” (extract from article). A very interesting observation has been made here; worth bearing in mind.
