Alien abduction and the lore around UFO sightings has become so prevalent in society that you can ask someone what it would like to be abducted and they would concoct a scenario that’s nearly identical to the most famous of UFO and alien sightings. We’re not saying that it’s impossible for aliens to exist, but it’s hard to believe stories of alien sightings that seem lazy. Are aliens real? It’s hard to say, but some of the most recent offbeat alien sightings all seem to have a lack of credibility about them. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the least likely alien sightings for your skeptical pleasure.
If you keep your eyes on the grocery store tabloids like we do, you’ll notice that UFO conspiracies have taken the backseat to celebrity sex changes and beach body nightmares. But if you start to look around, you’ll realize that visitors from other planets have never stopped popping in to say hello. Whether they’re buzzing airplanes in Spain, or getting their freak on with Chinese lumberjacks, aliens are here to stay. Maybe? The stories on this list aren’t really the easiest to believe, and we want to believe. We just wish there a little more evidence. Is that too much to ask? Take a look at the alien abduction stories on this list and let us know what you think.
In 2009, clusters of more than 100 lights were seen over the UK and Holland
. Engineer, Paul Slight, 54, took photos on his mobile phone of the strange objects hovering over Lincoln. They kind of just look like paper lanterns to us.
The Phoenix Lights is a series of UFO sightings that occurred in 1997 (and again in 2007, and 2008). The phenomena was viewed by thousands in the Phoenix area, including the then-governor
There's Definitely (Not) a Castle on Mars
Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a castle on Mars? Like, so we could finally
joust some Martians? That’s what the UFO optimists are saying
after looking at the photos from a 2006 trip to Mars, but um… it’s definitely not a castle.
If you’re an animator, and you’re trying to convince everyone that you’re the only person who saw a UFO – don’t immediately tell the press that your job is to make mock up photos of fake things. Which is exactly whatLewis Rogers did when he spoke to the Daily Star in 2014
. Nice try, Rogers.
For about 10 years, speculation over the Atacama Humanoid ranged from “definitely an alien,” to, “probably an alien.” But after years of research
it was concluded that the humanoid was probably a person… maybe?
Finally, photographic evidence that extraterrestrials love ribs. At a backyard barbecue in England, a 51-year-old woman took a photo
that later revealed what seems to be a UFO or a giant pork dumpling. TBH, we hope it’s a dumpling.
Japan Air Lines Flight 1628 Incident
While en route to Paris from Tokyo, carrying a bunch of wine, supposedly the crew witnessed two unidentified objects abruptly rising from below before they closed in to escort their aircraft. The FAA’s findings were inconclusive. Are we overthinking this? What if the pilot actually got into some of that delicious wine?
Comet 67P Is an Alien Warship
. CONSPIRACY THEORISTS
. Especially the ones that came up with the idea that there’s analien warship inside a comet
that we’ve been investigating for the last 20 years. Since we touched down on the comet in late 2014 and haven’t heard anything from our new overlords, it’s probably safe to assume the theory was bunk.
The 1970s in England were notable for their wild swaths of UFO sightings. One of the best, and least credible, was the Broad Haven Triangle. Starting with a woman who saw an ” upside down flying saucer
” outside her window, a rash of copycat sightings took off, culminating in the sighting of a UFO by a group of school children
. Their drawings of the incident are all the proof we need to put this story in the kooky pile.
In Breckenridge, CO, sightings of multiple unexplained aircrafts
were reported when locals saw a couple of UFOs floating in mid air and also spotted some “flashes of light.” We want to believe and all, but these are probably drones.
Author Whitley Strieber, really wants you to believe that he was abducted by aliens
. And maybe he was, we don’t know everything. But we do know that his SUPER WEIRD
“experiences” with the aliens that abducted him were turned into a best selling book and movie that a lot of people saw. Who needs proof when you got cash?
The Meng Zhaoguo Incident
In 1994, a lumberjack from north China claimed that he was abducted by a six fingered, hairy-legged alien
and forced to copulate in order to further the alien’s species. His story has only changed slightly in almost 20 years (the memory is a fickle thing isn’t it?) and now thanks to abduction, he’s living the quiet life on a college campus.
Jan Wolski was a simple Polish farmer who was driving his horse drawn carriage in 1978 when he says he was jumped by two “short, grey-faced humanoid entities.” He claims the two alien ghost riders then started speaking in a strange language before taking him aboard their ship and examining him. Wolski only gave a handful of interviews before seemingly dropping of the face of the earth.
In late ’70s Spain, an aircraft carrier with 109 passengers witnessed a set of red lights approaching the air craft that followed them until they made an unscheduled landing. An official report by the Spanish government explained the lights to be “flashes emitted from a distant chemical industry complex.”
