After more than 50 years faithfully recording reports of UFOs and flying saucers, and patiently answering questions from the public, the MoD eventually decided it was a waste of money, newly released documents show.

The British Space program has always suffered budgetary problems, or they might well have been a contender in the space race between the USSR and the US of A. Britain developed several rockets, and some space planes.

I do when I have good visibility or no light pollution. Whenever I am able too, I will often look up in the sky and wonder ;)

Kind Regards :)

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

I moved away from the 'bright lights big city' due to those reasons ... I remember I was looking up because a very fond friend was flying to another country and I couldn't get a glimpse of the sky ... to maybe catch a glimpse of her flight over head ... I remember how I felt in my heart ... that emptiness ...

NOw I almost always say good night to the night sky before I get in bed :)

when I'm sober enough to remember ... :lol:

Its a real good thing to Look up at night Look into the vastness of our hood,and dream a little dream that sends a positive outlook into that Great Dark Unknown !
I Look each night up and do so , It helps me sleep and dream that Dream ! We are not alone, but we are very,very far apart ! Until that day We can Dream!

This is a Work in Progress!

Plenty of it in Australia. Have you never heard someone returning from a camping holiday or such exclaiming how many stars are in the sky, once they get away from cities a little? It is very common here in any case, and one does not require a telescope to take it to the next level, lots of people have an old set of half decent Binoculars hanging around, particularly campers I find, and they are an excellent tool to viewing space as well.
Major cities create a serious problem with sky watching, the rest of the world is quite OK.

Really works all the Brains out at the Tele`s Love the Great Light At Night ,Deep in the Heart of Texas !

We in the suburbs and rural areas knows that very well ... and I was proposing the question in a rhetorical nature ... Even so its not a common habit as more and more would more likely be watching TV or staring at Computer screens or doing something else like peering into space, both into telescopes or left to wandering minds gazing at nothing in particular, all in all ... my point is that less and less remembers there is a 'sky' above and the wonders of sunsets and sunrise or just the clear unpolluted starry night sky is all.

The Real X-Files: Britain makes last of secret UFO files public

The truth is finally out there.
The U.K. government has released the final batch of secret files related to a decades long hunt for little green men --

Please, can't they revoke journalistic licences if they exceed more than a certain threshold of dreadful clichés? Anyway, you couldn't expect someone as corny as that to treat the subject remotely seriously, could you.



Edited by Colonel Rhuairidh, 02 July 2013 - 08:40 AM.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

That's the boat I'm in.
No, it's possible to catch a small winged orb if one has the cash for some clever equipment and the insight into exactly how they behave. I intend to do just this but I need to earn a few grand to feel comfortable that I had a good chance of success. A year or so away hopefully. I'm also going to bug the BBC Nature department about why they haven't done a programme on mystery white fireflies, which I reckon must be their food. Food for thought anyway..





N.B. The bias on "little green men" from another world and not something here on Earth we can't yet deal with.

Edited by RingFenceTheCity, 02 July 2013 - 11:34 AM.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.
