I haven't seen one. I'm guessing your referencing this recent sighting:

These things always remind me of the movie "Signs". I enjoy thinking of the news report from Brazil showing an alien walking by. Eerie. It makes news items like this more entertaining.

I love how the one guy claims that "ballons don't act like that", and then says "they looked like jellyfish in the sky".

I am a skywatcher and have been for many years. I have been looking for them though I have never seen any.

I have seen all kinds of flying objects- satellites, ISS, hot air balloons, fighter planes, airlineers, everything.. but never ever seen UFOs. I wonder why.

Me thinks they don't exist neither do aliens.
Have any of you seen flying saucers and that sort of stuff like they see in China, New York City, etc.

Could these be holograms? Are they trying to scare people?

To paraphrase Thomas Carlyle (the quote often gets misattributed to Sagan) - if other star systems are uninhabited, it seems like an awful waste of space.

With the amount of air traffic of NYC, how can someone even say the word UFO? Some people just enjoy the entertainment I guess.

The fact that you have never seen any "unexplainable thing in the air" does not mean nothing such exists.

Until 1991 and at the respectable age of 43 I had no opinion on the subject, like many I was in the "who knows ?" league.
On a nice summer night I had (together with half a dozen people I gathered) a whopping 35 minutes astonishing experience.

It turns out it was only one of several hundreds (officially reported) sightings...and multiple radar (ground and airborne radars, including NATO, Belgian Air Force and Brussels civilian) trackings over Belgium and contiguous areas over a period of 4 years.

The Air Force report subsequent to the inquiry ordered by the General HQ is available on the internet.

Oh, I disagree. I think there are certainly aliens. It's inconceivable that we're alone in this huge universe that spreads literally far beyond what they eye can see.

But I do agree that it is exceedingly unlikely that they're here. And that they are only visible to trailer park residents.

To say that there definitely are aliens or there definitely are not aliens is stupid. Consider the fact that we have only started exploring our own galaxy. We haven't even explored the entire Milky Way. Now consider that there may be as many as 500 billion galaxies out there in the cosmos. No one on this planet can say for certainty that aliens do or do not exist. I for the record, do believe that they exist, and that we have been visited, and are still being visited.

With so many possibilities of life out there in space I am sure there is life somewhere else besides Earth. But do they have the capabilities of space travel? Remember, some life could be just mold on a rock.

Never say never. Universe is infinite, some guys could be living somewhere. Just like you or I haven't travelled to Mars or Saturn, they too might perhaps have not travelled, so we've not seen them..
And one should not expect to see an object with legs and arms, perhaps liquid-ish ?
If I recall correctly, Lord Buddha has once mentioned something along the lines that extraterrestrial life exists - though I'm not sure.

No, but we can use the law of averages to say that there most likely is other life.

Quoting KFlyer (Reply 13):
Universe is infinite

Unfortunately, it's not that simple. The boundaries of the universe are not physical, but temporal. So one could say that you could travel across an infinite amount of space, and never reach any sort of end. But there is an "end" (at least according to the latest models), it's just unobservable.

I guess that statement refers to the often too quick jump from seeing a UFO to claiming that they're aliens. The more educated one is, the more likely one will know the alternatives. However, seeing a UFO isn't that uncommon. It's just something in the air that cannot be identified at the moment of the sighting. I've have some 3 experiences like that, and I'm not talking about an A320 on approach to BRU in a colour scheme that was unfamiliar to me  

If you're interested in a story from a very educated person, check this film about the Belgian UFO wave that was mentionned higher in this thread. A major in the Belgian Air Force gives a very interesting summary of the events. He doesn't claim it was alien technology but he does exclude all other thinkable options.

The only known picture of "an object" during the Belgian UFO wave.
Figure 1 is the original, the others are results of filterings by the CNRS (French national center for scientific research).

During the time of the Belgian UFO wave, I saw flying objects similar to those displayed in the previous link. Multiple objects consisting of three orange lights each, flying very fast in a formation, no sound. This was during a holiday in Normandie. I only learned about the sightings in Belgium after I saw them.

There may very well be other forms of "intelligent" life in the Universe although nothing has yet proved it.

It is more the "flying saucers" and other space vehicles from unknown planets I am thinking of. I am an almost every night sky watcher for years in so many places around the world and so far I have seen... Nothing.

A lot of people have a tendency to mix up chinese lanterns and diverse mylar balloons with "alien spacecrafts". Holographic images projected in the sky for various testing purposes are not an impossibility, the same with falling bits and pieces of sattelites, unknown air force crafts and other.

I will leave the alien spacecrafts, HAARP and such things to illuminist forums.

So, I take it you consider
the CNES (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales - Toulouse), the equivalent of NASA, as another bunch of illuminists,
Gordon Cooper, US astronaut of Gemini and Mercury fame, engineer and test pilot as an illuminist, even on his death bed
Harry Truman, US president as an illuminist
and the list is too long for A.net's server

We were indeed mentioning the existence of unexplainable but fully documented flying phenomena.
They are alien because science as available on planet Earth in the year 2010 of the Gregorian calendar is ages away from what these crafts, from who knows where, are showing us.
