    Please give an honest, clear answer and leave a detailed comment unless the answer is none. Please leave the comment about the poll inside the poll. I am using a different poll because this poll is active in other websites.

    I leave this comment here also because I think it is entertaining.

    WY UFO's
    Four of us were canoe camping in WY on the North Plate.

    Day 1) 3 of us saw three "UFO"'s shoot across the sky keeping perfect
    formation with the brightest one in the center. They moved across the
    sky to fast to be man made.

    Day 2) Just after sunset the three lights were there again. But this
    time they were not moving. All of us saw this. We were freaked out! I
    volunteered to bereave the bugs and go out to get the binoculars. On
    my way to the bag that had the binoculars I looked back at the UFO's
    but I only saw one. I knew right away what was going on. I asked the
    others in the tent if they still saw three lights in the sky they
    said "YES!".

    Because of the bugs we spent a lot of time in the tent behind a
    screen, which for bight objects in a dark background allows one to see
    the diffraction pattern out to the first order. Day 1 was a shooting
    star and day two was Venus.

    Moderator's intervention:
    UFOs are not an Astronomical topic, rather a psychologic one. Although it might be entertaining, I will not tolerate it be a part of this subforum. Therefore, I move the thread.

    I saw a UFO once.

    It was at a scout jamboree, at night.
    I was looking up at the stars (as you do in the middle of a field away from society's light pollution) and i saw a few satellites which was pretty cool.
    But one of the 'satellites' was going abnormally fast and flew such that it drew a circle with its flight path and then carried on the way it was going, not natural behaviour for a satellite or aircraft.
    It was then i deemed it unidentifiable. I looked over at the people i was sitting with, asked them if they saw it and one smiled and nodded but they may have been humouring me...
    Anywho, my logic goes that the jamboree was a big gathering of people right? Maybe the person controlling this flying object was interested in the gathering?
    I had a simple dream: a dream to kill all humans, and this is how you repay me?

    I agree. Maybe my experience is psychological... ( ) but I don't think UFO's are. As megabrain says, UFO's are not neccesarily aliens they are simply, unidentified flying objects... (with little green men in )

    You're being too harsh biologista, and taking things far too seriously... Just an observation.

    He called another user an idiot twice and then told me to f--k off because I asked him not to make personal attacks. I kinda have to take that seriously. We want people to feel like they can have a civilised chat here, that if they make a mistake or get something wrong that they're not going to take personal abuse because of that. We have posting guidelines for that reason. If you guys aren't okay with those guidelines then that's really okay, you can go elsewhere- but that's how things are going to be here.

    Sorry if you feel that's too harsh, but I'd like to see this place grow and there's no way we're going to retain new users if they see a science forum in which it is permissible to post profanity in giant letters.

    Now, if you want to talk about this more you can PM me or you can start a thread about it- but let's not derail this thread with a debate about my moderating.

    Megabrain's account will be temporarily suspended. Further such action on his part can result in longer suspension or even termination of his account.

    In addition, other members will be wise not to follow that lead.
