    Lets get one thing straight: were they Catholic aliens or Protestant aliens?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA maybe i will get a warning for laughing but still. However, as they are Irish it is customary to have a FEW drinks while working... :tongue2:

    Seriously, does it matter if they were high up?? I mean, if it's Belfast city, there are bound to have been other people around, and chances are there would have been SOMEONE looking at the sky. I am a bit skeptical about the fact that they were the ONLY two people in the city to see this.

    This might be a stereotype too, but Ulster people are famously level-headed - Belfast is no 60's San Francisco. Also, I reckon those folks have seen so many helicopters over their city day-in day-out they might be better than most at judging things aerial.

    Of course stereotying a city - however positively - is no way to judge the veracity of a UFO sighting.

    If it were, though, would a sighting over London indicate an authentic or false sighting?

    Good question. And after some consideration I have come to the conclusion that a UFO sighting over London would have to be false. They just don't do that sort of thing over here - far too vulgar. :biggrin:
