    I wish I could show you that object doing the vertical acceleration. It blew my mind. In 10 seconds, it faded into the stars.

    You would have had to contact local authorities or ATIC that night or next day when you found the impressions.

    Geiger Counters , soil analysis had been used in previous sightings.

    Perhaps the plane club was asked to do that so that there would be a non-ufo explanation for a real ufo? I know a person who saw this and he saw more than lights and was moving slow. In the article I posted there were quotes from witnesses who said they have seen the planes and that this was different.

    just a though..

    If an actual ufo was witnessed and the gov't wanted to keep it secret what would they do? Well, they could ask some skilled pilots to perform a maneuver at night that would approximately the pattern that was reported. Of course, by design there would be many more witnesses of the planes than witnesses of the actual ufo. The court of public opinion would rule it were the planes that the witnesses of the actual ufo saw and it would be case closed.

    UFO information not expected to go to general public, Navy says

    The U.S. Navy has drafted a procedure to investigate and catalogue reports of unidentified flying objects coming in from its pilots. But the service doesn't expect to make the information public, citing privileged and classified reporting that is typically included in such files.

    Joe Gradisher, a spokesman for the office of the deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, said in a statement that the Navy expects to keep the information it gathers private for a number of reasons.

    "Military aviation safety organizations always retain reporting of hazards to aviation as privileged information in order to preserve the free and honest prioritization and discussion of safety among aircrew," Gradisher said. "Furthermore, any report generated as a result of these investigations will, by necessity, include classified information on military operations."

    He added, "Therefore, no release of information to the general public is expected."

    Why do the 1950’s flying saucers look like two Jon boats wielded together vs flying saucers post Star Wars always look hi tech?

    Now if a Star Wars-esque vessel showed up in the 1950’s then you’d really have something to consider.

    That's much to complicated. Obviously the code crackers translated the alien version of whatever
    'To Serve Man' was written as - such as 3rd Planet from Star X89213F food sources.

    In regards to the Aliens translating across multiple languages - they obviously gave the Americans a
    Universal Translator that worked in a specific way - with built in deception software that wouldn't give
    the earthlings any hints about their fate.

    Why are there so many similarities between UFO and Blessed Virgin Mary sightings?
    More than likely because when it comes to sensing and explaining what we don't understand, the nervous systems 'fills in the blanks' with what we already 'know'.

    Walker Texas Ranger would have just sniffed the landing zone and told us exactly which craft landed there!

    Because that was how they were making them back then. Google it!

    Well, it was only 30 ft across. It would fade and disappear pretty quickly. I just stared up at the ceiling for 10 seconds, I can't figure out if that is a long time or not for that thing to disappear.

    The thing that's been in the back of my mind is all this time these aliens have been coming here to observe earth and earthlings, and then high tail it out of here as fast as they can....

    What do they see that bothers them so much?

    Maybe this will help put the 10 secs in perspective for you....

    The F-15 Strike Eagle set time to climb records in 1975. It smashed the old records. Here is the story behind it that I clipped from the UTC website.... here: https://utc.com/en/news/PW/2015/02/18/40-years-ago-streak-eagle-smashed-records-for-time-to-climb

    This was the fastest aircraft in existence back in that timeframe for climb. Read on!

    "January 16, 1975, was historic, as records for the first five altitudes fell in the space of six hours, with the three in the middle all occurring on the same flight. On the first record flight, the "Streak Eagle" was flown to the 3,000 meter height in 27.57 seconds, eclipsing the old mark by a margin of 6.9 seconds.

    The 6,000 meter record of 39.33 seconds (by a margin of 9.5 seconds); 9,000 meters in 48.86 seconds (by a margin of 12.8 seconds); and 12,000 meters in 59.38 seconds (by a margin of 17.7 seconds), were all set on the same flight. Maj. MacFarlane flew this record flight. "He lifted off in the blink of an eye, level accelerated just a few feet off the ground, pulled up into a vertical climb and accelerated through the speed of sound easily while in the vertical climb," Enos said. "The airplane and engines operated perfectly."

    For the record attempts at 15,000 meters and above, pilots wore high-altitude pressure suits. At these higher altitudes, the Streak Eagle was 10 seconds faster to altitude than the Apollo Saturn Rocket moon shots. The 15,000 meter record of 77.02 seconds (by a margin of 37.5 seconds) was flown on a profile similar to the lower record flights. The last three record flights had similar profiles – a level acceleration at just above ground level, followed by a constant G pull up to a vertical climb, and then an "Immelmann turn," an aerobatic maneuver that results in level flight in the opposite direction at a higher altitude, followed by an acceleration to the target Mach number, then a constant G pull up to the optimum climb angle. Incredibly, on the 30,000 meter record attempt, at the time of the Immelmann, the aircraft was about 21 miles down-range and through Mach 2 speed - only two minutes after take-off. On that flight, a promotional U.S. Air Force video reported that the "Streak Eagle" was on a "nearly ballistic flight path."

    The 20,000 meter record of 122.94 seconds (by a margin of 46.8 seconds) was set on Jan. 19 and the 25,000 meter mark of 161.02 seconds (by a margin of 31.6 seconds) was set on Jan. 26. The historic 30,000 meter record of 207.80 seconds (by a margin of 36.1 seconds) was set on Feb. 1. The first attempt at 30,000 meters, however, was unsuccessful. "We analyzed that we needed a cold day to break the record," Enos said, "and that if we got one, we would do so not by a little but by a lot. The first attempt came on a warm day and we just missed it. We needed a seven degree centigrade cold day at altitude, and we waited for it. And when we got it, we crushed the record."

    The 30,000 meter flight profile was the most difficult one. Acceleration was made to Mach 2.2 and the optimum climb angle was approximately 55 degrees. The maximum altitude reached was approximately 103,000 feet as the aircraft "coasted" above the record. The engines were flamed out at this altitude, but were restarted inflight. This was important because had they not restarted, the recovery was to "dead stick" the plane back to the airport in Fargo."

    You’re referring to the hoaxes.
