I'd like to see this thread moved into Science thread and out of the conspiracy thread.
2nd Edit...The Department of Defense and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence is supposed to be explaining some things- soon. Unclassified? No.... not a chance.

Shoot me if you wish, ... but I think these things are real. However, I don't think there is anything extraterrestrial about them. In my opinion, they are just coming from a different time. Imagine if we could travel back in time, what would a fighter jet look like to a caveman?

Interesting theory that others have said as well. It's a logical conclusion....the standard out of the box 'alien' has 2 eyes, arms etc...and looks humanoid.

Time travel would be vastly more difficult than interstellar travel. Traveling forward in time would be possible using special relativistic time dilation...but not back in time as the universe doesn't work like that.
Time travel backwards ....we run into a paradox. If you somehow went back in time and killed your grandmother before she gave birth to your parent, then you can't exist. I'm staying away from multiverse theory,wormholes and particle entanglement in this example of the paradox.

These may just be UROs rather than UFOs. Lots of reflections everywhere on everything.
RADAR reflections? Light reflections?

The problem with that is, many credible people including military have had visual on these objects. Radar anomalies explanation doesn't cut it.

Interstellar travel....
Interstellar.... Let's put this into perspective.
If Sol, our sun were the size of a pea, the earth would be a speck of dust 70cm (2.3ft) away from it. . Pluto would be 30m(97ft) away. The voyager spacecraft after 40+ years of flight would be about 100m(328ft) away. The nearest star, Proxima would be 200 km( 123 miles) away.
The Trappist star system(has a bunch of earth like planets) is only 39 light years away, but on our shrunk down sun is a pea scale , it would be about 1870 km (1160 miles) away.
For us humans to attempt traveling that distance is engineering on a level that by a way of comparison would be like a mouse attempting to build a smartphone.

Do you know or think you know what a 'spaceship' is?
Just something for your brains to chew on while worrying about really important stuff like who won last nights hockey game.

And one time this bird flew onto the window sill and said ( the bird knew I was crazy and that I'd listen to and believe him) that the reason the western/developed countries are aggressively carrying out a expedited globalist integration plan is to get everyone to put away our prejudice, our discrimination, our xenophobia of each other and to cherish the planets environment. We didn't do it quick enough as in 50 years ago quick enough. Now things are more complicated due to there being a gross overpopulation problem and massive planetary environmental destruction as a result of it.

Paul Hellyer's( one one the bravest men on the planet) take on it.... https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/fo ... -pollution
Even Reagan touched on the need for us to get it together. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAAHgAuti84

We have to be able clear enough space in our puny hominid brains to be able to process the scope of this...
