You have a very low estimate of people's intelligence. One might even say contemptuous. You should get out more and ask people if they've ever noticed stars and planets in the sky before. They might surprise you. Your little contrived Mars episode doesn't come close to what those police officers witnessed that night in Portage County. Which is why you had to enlist a meteor AND a sunlit metallic weather balloon in addition to the planet Venus to account for it. Noone buys that shit for minute. And it doesn't match the eyewitness accounts at all.
