Aww, another classic case to tick off.

Really, I'd love for it to all be real. I was so into UFOs as a child and teenager (and some of my 20s.)

BurningBeard: The Russian one is a cloud (!!!!)


Are you sure it's a cloud?

The one sighted over China is the same sort of cargo rocket. The Chinese Government ordered all aircraft to be grounded because officials at the time claimed it to be a UFO.

It looks like a cloud, that 2009 Moscow one @ 5:24 on the video. An odd cloud, but a cloud.

I have no problem with UFO as a term or a concept, only the ET-obsessed who seem to forget what the "U" stands.

It appears to be an Altostratus or Cirrus cloud, but it's also plausible that it could the M-03M (IFO).

A theory could be rather than them being "extra-terrestrial beings" there's a possibility that they could be "inter-dimensional beings". Fallen angels perhaps?

Only a theory per say.

Mostly misunderstandings and misinterpretations.

History Channel is slipping further and further.

I wouldn't be too opinionated, according to Aleister Crowley his encounter with an entity called "Aiwass" depicted a rather familiar looking figure.


Here it is:




   
His obsession with occult symbolism, Satanism & sex magick lead him to have many encounters with these rather "alien" looking figures. He was even the head of the O.T.O (Ordo Templi Orientis) - "his philosophic and esoteric works are today a major force influencing mainstream culture, values and spirituality."

You miss-typed his name, he was orginally known as Alexander Crowley but later changed his name to Aleister. Also published "The Book Of The Law"

BurningBeard:
It's one of those things like ghosts, I'll believe when I see it (and see it again after shaking my head and closing my eyes!). But having said that, there is a lot of witness testimony from reputable sources like doctors, police officers, and ranking armed forces personal that suggest there is something happening. 


The reality is, regardless of your job or intellect, the all-to-well-known failings of human perception can affect anybody, "I know what I saw" is really "I know what I THINK I saw."
 


That is true. Whilst driving I sometimes think I see people standing on the side of the road (seen via my peripheral vision). The same thing has happened around the house (again seen via my peripheral vision). Am I seeing ghosts? No. I guessing it's my brain creating shapes/figures to trigger my fight or flight mechanism. My mind is filling in the blanks on what might be a predator and helping me out so I see it and take action. Same thing can apply to UFOs.

Yes, yes. Mistyped his name, still the same person. Nothing to see here.

Didn't that Neil Armstrong come out and say few years back that he and the crew saw plenty of UFO's flying around but were told by the government at the time to keep it quiet no one takes what he said seriously because NASA never confirmed its true yet this came straight from Armstrong. Take a look at the US stealth fighter that wasn't designed by a human, they got the blueprints by the grey they captured in Area 51 back in the 1950's!!!
