Would love to see this in my life time if they truly exist.
Well one reason a highly advanced species would avoid landing in a area where they are likely to get shot or captured plus they would do a pretty through long term study on our planet and not just us but all life we are not the only intelligent species.

Plus we are a species that is one that I would avoid if I were a Advanced space faring species I admit that we would be interesting to watch but not one that is a rational, calm, logical at our current stage we cannot handle being told the truth if in fact we have had made contact or had proof they exist and it would be done only to protect us from ourselves.

Thank you! That's the real question, because they could do disclosure all on their own were they inclined to. That they are not is obvious. Why would they not? Perhaps they just want to use the planet for a stop-off place, a port to put in at, do repairs, re-provision, and rest before standing out to deep space again, and they know how we are.

We are a warlike species who's principle activities are tribal warfare and corruption. I can think of many reasons they would want to use the planet, while keeping their distance from it's inhabitants.

^^^ Hit the nail on the head with tribal warfare and corruption...

Maybe the aliens are training their next planetary army?

I dunno, I don't think that our warlike tendencies would disgust them so much they wouldn't have public contact ..... they're probably not like fundie church ladies shunning a member who is rumored to be adulterous or who shows too much cleavage and flirts with the pastor. They'd almost certainly have had an early history of conflict on our world just like us, they would have had to kill their food to eat it, and might have had to engage in warfare for access to limited resources.

I think they're just here out of curiosity. If you had the ability to roam the galaxy at will seeing the sights and learning things, wouldn't you? And scientific curiosity above all other kinds is never satiated.

The best way to sightsee for tourists is to watch a totally alien culture in action without disturbing it. As for science, there's always the Star Trek Prime Directive, right?

The premier UFO researcher is physicist Stanton Friedman. Here's an article on possible propulsion systems:

UFO PROPULSION SYSTEMS (1/2) «12»
By Stanton T. Friedman


If we deduce from the mountain of evidence that some flying saucers come to earth from nearby solar systems (there are one thousand stars within fifty-five light-years, forty-six of which are like the sun), we are immediately faced with two questions:

(1) How can a spaceship travel from a nearby solar system to earth in a reasonable time?

(2) Once here, how can flying saucers behave the way they are observed to behave? How do they achieve their reported high speed flight in the atmosphere (thousands of miles per hour), their ability to stop and start abruptly, to move up and down and back and forth seemingly with none of the limitations of conventional aircraft?

Typically there are no visible external engines...... Stanton Friedman - Articles: UFO Propulsion Systems (1)
