First sighting (via CNN)
CNN — Two commercial pilots flying over the Arizona desert claim they saw an unidentified flying object pass overhead, according to a radio broadcast released by the Federal Aviation Administration.
A Learjet pilot and an American Airlines pilot saw the object on February 24 and radioed the regional air traffic controller in Albuquerque.
“Was anybody, uh, above us that passed us like 30 seconds ago?” the Learjet pilot said in the brief exchange.
“Negative,” the air traffic controller replied.
“Okay,” the pilot said. “Something did.”
Minutes later, different plane (via CNN)
Air traffic control: “We had an aircraft in front of you that reported something pass over him and, uh, we didn’t have any targets. So just, uh, let me know if you see anything pass over you.”
Pilot 2: “It’s American 1095. Yeah, something just passed over us. I don’t know what it was, but at least two-three thousand feet above us. Yeah, it passed right over the top of us.”
I love that aliens are so mainstream now nobody even bats an eye when we see them. They’re just hanging out over Arizona watching planes fly around like it’s a damn 35,000-ft tailgate and nobody cares. Two different pilots, from two different planes, both saw the same aliens hovering in a flying saucer at the same time over the same place and nobody cares. It’s great. Seeing aliens now is like seeing a deer — kinda cool but nobody really cares.
Let me say this on aliens. The notion that aliens have suddenly spotted us and therefore we should be afraid because there’s some code red going on back at Alien HQ is so incredibly dumb. Look, any aliens who are casually checking in on us from time to time without even really being detected are in no imaginable way concerned about us. It’s a math thing. Aliens have been around for millions and millions, potentially billions of years. We’ve been around for like 10,000. The earth’s been here for 4.5 billion. The universe, 13.8 billion. We’ve been around for a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a second on the cosmic clock. Think about how far we’ve come in the last 100 years; now imagine aliens and where they’re at after a billion years of advancement. They’ve got their own unimaginably sophisticated thing going on and, oh yeah, if they know about us then they definitely know about thousands and thousands of other life around the universe as well. We’re one little dot on their massive chart of the universe. We’re like Tatooine to the Galactic Empire — unless some Jedi prophet takes residence here, the aliens will not have a single fuck to give about earth.
They’re obviously here though, probably a little vacation. Sup aliens?
