In the deep blue sky are millions of stars,And on this green land are only a few stars,
To know more about the twinklin star,we all gape using a telescope,
To know more about this shinning star. All you have is my blogspot in your scope

Flying Objects

When I was small, a small cute little kid, I was a kid with lot of doubts. Really the crazy ones. Like Why the 'A' should be called as 'A' and why not B. why should the clock hand rotate clockwise, why there is a sound of tides when you close your ears.Why is not the hand static when your walking? and so many

I would always gaze at my dearest sky and the wonderful tiny little stars. My granny (like all grannies) would tell stories about stars. The Stories that tell that all the dears one who are not living anymore become stars and watch us daily. Again a doubt would arise that what if the clouds were there. Would they not be with me…..

There are also sayings about a wish u make when u see a falling star. I like to believe this saying as I always make a dearest wish when I see a falling star. Its like a wish falling onto you or wish being granted by the god. Then suddenly I heard the story of other flying objects,the Aliens of the other World, the so-called UFO’s. The Unidentified Flying Objects.

Here’s some stuff on that…..

Almost every civilization that has kept a written history has recorded the sighting of strange objects and lights in the skies. Today, unexplained aerial phenomena are generally referred to as unidentified flying objects or flying saucers.

Descriptions of UFOs have ranged from glowing wheels to colored balls of light to cigar-, disk-, or crescent-shaped objects. One of the first well-documented UFO sightings occurred in 1561 in Nuremberg, Germany. A broadsheet published that year describes red, blue, and black balls or plates, crosses, and tubes that appeared to battle each other in the sky over the city.

The term flying saucer was coined in 1947. A businessman named Kenneth Arnold told reporters that while flying a private airplane near Mount Rainier in Washington he saw nine objects flying over the mountain in formation and at a speed of more than 1,600 miles (2,500 kilometers) per hour. Arnold described the objects as moving like "a saucer skipping across the water." After that first report, Arnold's description was shortened and it soon became popular to call all UFOs flying saucers.

When the report was later declassified it showed that 90 percent of all UFO sightings could be easily explained. Most of the sightings turned out to be celestial objects, such as stars or bright planets like Venus, or atmospheric events such as auroras or meteors falling through the atmosphere. Many other sightings turned out to be such objects as weather balloons, satellites, aircraft lights, or formations of birds. Often these sightings were accompanied by unusual weather conditions.

By the mid-1960s UFO reports were more numerous than ever. For the first time they were coming in regularly from places outside the United States, including Canada, Sweden, the Soviet Union, and Australia. In February 1966 another UFO panel was convened. Like the others, this panel determined that the vast majority of UFO reports were either natural phenomena or outright hoaxes.

In 1968 the United States Air Force asked Edward U. Condon, a physicist at the University of Colorado, to head a panel studying the extraterrestrial hypothesis (see Extraterrestrial Life). The committee's final report, 'A Scientific Study of UFOs', which covered detailed investigations of 59 UFO sightings, was reviewed by a special committee of the National Academy of Sciences and released in early 1969. The 37 scientists who contributed to the report interviewed UFO witnesses and studied physical and photographic evidence. The report, also known as the Condon Report, concluded that not only was there no evidence of extraterrestrial control of UFOs but also that no further UFO studies were needed.

People have a natural desire to explain and understand everything they see. This is why visual sightings of UFOs are the least reliable. The unaided human eye can be tricked to the point of hallucination. A bright light, such as the planet Venus, often appears to move, though a clamped telescope or a sighting bar shows it to be fixed. A visual impression of distance is also unreliable because it is based on an assumed size. Reflections from windows or eyeglasses may provide superimposed views. Optical defects can turn point sources of light into apparently saucer-shaped objects. Such optical illusions coupled with a desire to interpret visual images account for many UFO reports.

Radar sightings, while more reliable in certain respects, do not provide the information necessary to discriminate between physical objects and such natural phenomena as meteor trails, tracks of ionized gas, rain, or thermal discontinuities. Furthermore, several effects can give false radar echoes: electronic interference, reflections from ionized layers or clouds, and reflections from a region of humidity--for example, a cumulus cloud.

do you believe this. do add comments if so...or not so....

Never Said

Never Said

Ocean in front and only a drop with me

All too alone with only you in me
Beneath the ocean, Up beyond the sky
Down under the skin, deep within my heart

Lay the Never said Words

Will my silence make you remember me?
All too alone with only hopes in me
Not knowingly, you have stolen mine
Only thy knows shall you be mine

Having Never said those Words

Never would you be hurt, with the unsaid words I have
Never would you cry, with all the love I have
Would the last breath have you near me?
Or would the last beat have the unsaid words in me

Having Never said those Words

Having never said, only hopes lay
Having never said, I can only pray
Having never said, I shall only wait
Having never said, I shall still love

Still love, Still Love…. having never said those words

[Never Said is a romantic poem written when in engineering....dedicated for all the mechanical engineering guys for the one sided story....]
