First, a brief glossary:
Unidentified Flying Object (UFO): Pretty much what it sounds like. There’s a thing in the air and we don’t know what it is, exactly.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: There’s something going on in the air, and we have no idea what it is. Could also include certain types of weather effects. Really it’s just a re-skinned name for UFO created by military and intelligence agencies to reduce the stigma.
Unidentified Submerged Object (USO): There’s something in the water and we don’t know what it is exactly.
AATIP- Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Program: The United States Pentagon’s program to classify and identify UAP.
Transmedium vehicle: A vehicle capable of traversing water and air.
Okay, now that we have that out of the way, let’s discuss a little.
In our modern global culture we have developed kind of a stigma around the term, “UFO.” First, it is most often associated with “them aliens.” Second, it usually indicates the person who saw said is of questionable mental health (to the public.) Last, if there is a prosaic explanation, which there almost always is, it’s swamp gas trapped in a weather balloon, a spot on the lens, or a bug flying by the camera. I’ve heard other hyperbole as mundane explanations, but the list goes long and pointless.
Let’s talk about the most basic assumption one can make. “It’s them aliens.” To which I almost always say, “Not necessarily.” Unidentified means we don’t know what it is. A lot of UAP are simply misidentified aircraft, drones, satellites or the planet Venus. Which is not to say it’s not some sort of extraterrestrial or interdimensional presence, but the likelihood decreases or increases depending on the location, time of day and some other phenomena present.
My best advice if you see something odd in the air at night is to watch it closely. Does it move in a straight line or change course. Most modern aircraft, even military aircraft, are incapable of high speed turns at sharp angles without injuring the pilot or wrecking the craft. Balloons float at a constant speed. Satellites move in a straight line or arc. Wildlife tends to stay aloft for shorter periods of time. Meteors and flares move in a fairly straight line and burn out. Aircraft and drones usually make noise. However, if you see a ball of light and it just hovers before moving away at high speeds? You might want to contact MUFON or some similar agency.
Another thing you can attempt, if you see an object in the sky, at your own risk, is to try to make contact either through mundane means or telepathically. You can try signalling it with a flashlight, laser pointer or the light on most phones. (Okay, DO NOT point the laser directly at the object. Just sayin…) Try signalling in 3, 6, 9, or rhythmically. Then wait to see if you get any sort of response.
Telepathically? Yes, I’m very serious. It’s been done be researchers and regular folk alike. First, calm your mind a little bit. Then, in your head, state peaceful intent to make contact. Last, ask the craft to glow more brightly or move in a pattern if it can hear you. I know it sounds a bit crazy to some, but it has been known to work.
Researcher Grant Cameron calls this, “The Wow Factor.” Basically, the ETs piloting these craft want to be seen so we know they’re still around. They want us to believe in them so they put on a little show.
There is a good chance it is an ET craft if you experience any or all of the following phenomena: Electronics suddenly going completely dead or having their battery drained. This happens around ET experiences, crop circles, and hauntings quite often. Or sometimes electronics will act strange or random- phones start dialing random people, computers display bizarre lines of code, TVs and radios suddenly tune to random stations, possibly static. Also, if you experience what is called missing time, there is a good chance the unidentified object was otherworldly. I’ll discuss this more in depth in the next post in this series.
You can also sometimes tell if the craft was otherworldly by talking to neighbors or others who saw the same thing. You can check for aircraft and satellite activity on the internet. Sometimes other aircraft suddenly showing up out of the blue can indicate that maybe whatever it is has another explanation outside of the mundane.
In another article, we’ll dive deep into the subject of whether the ETs are here for benevolent reasons or more sinister purposes. It truly varies enough to warrant a discussion unto itself. Are the UAP’s themselves a threat? Most often they are not. It’s just something in the air and we don’t know what it is. Sometimes we get answers and sometimes we don’t.
It’s not just some crazy conspiracy theory to see something in the sky and not know what one is looking at. Nor is it something to run and be afraid of. My opinion and advice are that we should approach these unknown visitors, regardless of what they may be, with curiosity and kindness.
Keep looking up. Stay safe. Have a lovely weekend.
