Yes.... VGer. :tu:

Voyager 1 is not heading towards any particular star, but in about 40,000 years it will pass within 1.6 light years of the star AC+79 3888 in the constellation Camelopardalis.

And in all that time Voyager 1 or 2 has not seen any Motherships or UFOs.. I say it must have seen something.

We'll be getting signals until the reactor dies in 14 years or so./  They need to listen with a deep space dish but how amazing that this old ship is providing data that we couldn't see again for at least three decades (guessing)  if we tried.

This is such a minor trip on the big scale of things and already the distances are beyond imagining.  I can't visualize, relistically, how far away Voyager is.  Voyager leaving the home star's influence makes you realize how tiny we are even when compared to just this solar system..

Not necessarily, maybe they missed them as they were heading towards Earth, but you would think with the amount of "sightings" reported here, the UFO`s would have at least been a bit curious themselves as to what that object was flying past the other way?Posted Image

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

You leave the solar system when the sun no longer has gravital pull.  That is how it is.

Gravity from the sun, and other solar objects, reach out an infinite distance, with diminishing influence. At some point extra - solar bodies will exert a greater influence. than the sun´s gravitational 'field'. This is why gravtational influence is not used for determining the 'limits' of the Solar System

I would say a rule of thumb might be that one has left the solar system when Sol is no longer the nearest star.

That would be a very arbitrary definition, as it would depend entirely on which direction you are heading in.
