Where are all the UFO’s?

Sunday night my sister and I sat outside staring at the stars. Not just because they're beautiful, but I stupidly believed that if I looked at the sky long enough, maybe I would actually see a UFO. I’m a serious Ancient Aliens fan and I always hear about UFO’s being spotted all across the world, so why not South Africa right?

Imagine my surprise when I see a bright star moving across the sky. “Look, a UFO!” I go on ranting all excited and happy. My other family members rushed outside and saw what I was getting excited about and they simply rolled their eyes. My brother, who is the voice of logic and reason, mentioned that it was a satellite. Unwilling to believe him, I did a search online and he was right. There are like 10 000 satellites in space right now, not to mention the international space station, which can both look like stars and the latter tends to flash brightly for a few seconds and then dim again. To make matters worse, when I returned outside about 10 minutes later, another moving star moved in the sky, just confirming how regularly you can see a satellite in the sky. 


So, where are all the UFO’s? Have you ever seen a UFO?

  1. Hi Murees,
    I don't blame you for being excited. Space if full of mysteries and you never know what you might see. I"ve never seen a UFO, but I've read stories about them.

  2. I've never seen a UFO, and I didn't know about the satellites. I mean, I know they are there, but I didn't know they could be seen.

    Love,
    Janie

  3. I've never seen a UFO, but I remember that I loved the film E.T. when I was a kid, especially that scene where the kids are literally flying in the sky on their bikes. I think it'd be interesting if there was life on other planets, though I fear that the likes of the Kardashians and pretty much everyone on TLC's reality shows will keep aliens AWAY from our planet.

    1. Ahaha! Could be. ET was great and Drew Barrymore was so cute. I like the part where ET gets drunk.

  4. love your procrastination comic from last post - and ufos? i think they just aren't in right now (hee hee) they'll come back around! Men in Black is the best alien movie to me =) but ET is awesome too

    and several movies give visual comments about all the space crap orbiting earth... we have too much garbage in space too!

    1. Thanks, I couldn't think of any other way to interpret procrastination. Men in Black was great too, the comedy aspect so brilliant and I loved ET too. What can I say, I love me some aliens. Curse the space garbage. Thank you for popping over Tara.

  6. I love looking at the night sky and yeah, those darn satellites are all over. The meteors are my favorite. Ancient aliens, are you a fellow Stargate fan?

    1. I loved Stargate, the original series with Richard Dean Anderson and the movies. I was so bummed when it was canceled. Also, thank you for following.
