Space aliens shouldn’t be the default position when people see flying objects that seem unusual. I’d like to think there are extraordinary Why isn't the general public being made aware of these reports, if they're coming from credible witnesses? This would help kickstart thoughtful discussions in mainstream media that to me, would be a worthwhile venture. As an aside, I can't help but wonder if some of these UAP's will remain ''unidentified'' to the general public, perhaps for safety reasons - maybe these crafts are some type of advanced military technology that is being tested - whether that be the US military, or another country. This would seem ''extraordinary'' to me, even though it would mean these UAP's have mundane origins. Mundane doesn't have to mean birds, weather balloons, and the like. The default position shouldn't be - if we can't identify these crafts, then we need to start considering the possibility that it's space aliens. To me, there are more realistic options to explore (like my example above), before going that route. Do we presume that only space aliens are capable of this type of advanced technology, and that the general public is privy to everything the government is doing behind closed doors? I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but I'd believe that the governments around the globe know more than we do about these UAP's than they're sharing, than these crafts coming from ''other worlds.''
