Credible or not?  What about the other witness that allowed the craft's position to be triangulated?

I have no idea what they saw, but I do know this,... Kelly Johnson (on the ground) was a true believer in flying saucers before that 1953 sighting and (the pilot) Roy Wimmer mentioned that he had seen " mysterious lights" over Santa Catalina Island years earlier.

Im saying that this sighting would have been more interesting if they werent already "believers".

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

If were talking "Kelly Johnson" Were talking the King of Dark projects,and most likely had a bit of a very balanced mind on all things aerospace and aviation ! He was one of our greatest !
I wouldnt count him out as far as seeing something very strange  that night !
But as time flys by its own rules and limits ,We can only Keep Looking up!
My money is still on the facts are still not in ! :innocent:

Does anyone have a recent example of where UFO's have landed and people have seen them close up or relatively close?  It looks to me as if there are a lot of cases like this from the 60's and 70's but the nearer to our time we go the less we find.  Can anyone corroborate this?

It looks to me then as if this was a phenomena of those times.  I haven't heard of any close encounter landings recently either; so there we seem to have a trend.  I wonder why this is?  When I saw how Edwin Fuhr described the may small craft that he saw and how he said they were spinning, it made me think that they were perhaps charging up somehow.  Spinning draws things in, like electric motors. The same with the Kansas UFO; again spinning.  I would be interested to know if Travis Walton's craft was also doing the same.

One speculation could be that somehow UFO's no longer need to land to get their energy; they now get it from higher in the atmosphere?

Another classic UFO case from 1964: Police officer Lonnie Zamora is pursuing a speeding car when he encounters a craft that lands.  The craft leaves landing marks and an investigation is ordered.

No I don't think it was; too much evidence for it.

I take it we won't be seeing you on this thread again then?


Wishful thinking?

Scared?

I am having a nice conversation with others, would you refuse me that would you, just so that you can talk about solved mysteries that were never mysteries?

Didn't think I would know those cases of the top of my head did you. Don't blame me for you lack of research and lousy presentations. Most of them have already been countered here. Do you ever look at a case before you present it? Dead set, after that lengthy thread, I cannot believe you put that Buzz Aldrin clip up Zoser. It's like a 65 page thread right here, how on earth did you manage to miss it? Buzz himself says the report is rubbish and he was taken out of context. It is not hard to find these things you know. Particularly that example.

Actually considering you promoted the Aztec Hoax as a genuine mystery I probably should not be so surprised should I? :rolleyes:

Try harder Zoser. this thread had potential until you put that sordid rubbish up. It is not hard to have a look at a case to see if it is an obvious hoax or not. In this case, you never had to leave UM.

And they are not documentaries. That too, does not look good for your credibility. Just a helpful hint there.

Oh don't get me wrong, I don't believe the Earth is being visited by ET or that it ever was, there isn't enough evidence for that and looking at distance/time/technology issues, it seems even less likely. What I meant was that some of the stories are possible, just like the chances of ET visiting us right now, however small those chances are. Communication would be the most logical means to study a new civilization and even if there is an alien civilization out there that's more advanced than us, I don't think they'd be advanced enough to be capable of interstellar travel, but that's just my opinion of course. The only scenario where the abductions and sightings would fit is the one where aliens are here and they're so far ahead of us that they can come and go as they please, and they don't feel like we could be any threat to them even if we wanted to. I'm sure you'll agree with me if I say it's extremely unlikely, but we can't say it's absolutely impossible either. As for the fake cases and charlatans, if I had to guess I'd say 95% of the stories are just human imagination.

Hi Lcvec

We most certainly are on the same page, I agree, that is what keep me coming back, I keep hoping something that canot be refuted will show up, but it strikes me as maddening as to the lengths some will go to try and create a scenario to shoehorn ET in. I really think if we do get, or have ever had a visit, that information will not be so cryptic. There are so many markers right down to an isotopic level that distinctively tell us if something is from another place in the Universe, like meteors and comets. We have the means, it should not be so long winded and hard to come up with an explanation. That 99.9% of the time these happenings have a prosaic explanation explains my more skeptical standpoint. Then you get guys like Zoser that try to make prosaic explanation seem unlikely only to be replaced with a far more elaborate, unsupported idea that really is not more than a musing, and simply feels people should just accept this as fact at face value. I just take in my face BS as a challenge, and every time someone tries to BS me, I just have to say "really now?" And then present the factual information to counter. That being said I finds personal belief more than fine, and accept that a personal encounter would be very compelling, but having not seen something that I would call an ET craft, whilst having seen 2 UFO's in my life, makes it hard to understand the conviction from my perspective. People like D and McG, I find more compelling than a dozen Roswells. They really make me scratch my head to be honest.
I reckon Interstellar travel is quite possible, but I think it would be a huge loud noisy machine that we would see coming from a very long way away, and with space being what it is, I would expect a call that is something like "can we stop in and top up supplies?" We had our own plans which were quite viable back as far as the late 50's - LINK The Orion Project. I think if we could do it, others can, but I feel Orion puts some perspective on just what Deep Space travel would be like, and it is nothing like the zippy little sports saucers that we see in Sci Fi all the time.

Cheers

Funny that you should mention triangulation when you avoid it like a nasty disease where the Phoenix lights are concerned.

Evan our good friend Major Hector Quntanilla at Project Blue Book, whose orders were to slap some kind of explanation on every UFO report, could not find any explanation for Zamora's sighting.  No one ever will, in my opinion.
