Coming from Ufo’s why do they have such shining powerful beams?
Alien beings that have been seen {supposedly} by earthlings, describe them as of medium to tall shapes, most of all though visually their middle digit finger ‘digitus medius manus’’ vis Latin] is always so very much longer? How do they manage difficult manipulations, surely an ability an' nimbleness to complete such complicated mechanical tasks would be an impossibility.
I have a clue as to their origin, wherever this is it must be lacking in natural daylight, because they have very big eyes..

It's interesting to me that, with few exceptions, UFOs have only ever been sighted in the US and UK. It's also interesting to me that nobody has managed to get any decent videos/photos of aliens or UFOs, what with everyone carrying high-resolution cameras in their pockets nowadays.

In any case, I'd say the ultimate root answer to your questions is related to technology. Any alien species capable of interstellar travel will be sufficiently advanced that issues related to physical inadequacy are solved with machines.

How do they know we're here and that earth is worth visiting? We've only been broadcasting radio signals for a little over a hundred years now, and, as far as we know, there are no planets with signs of intelligent life anywhere within a hundred light years of us. Any beings living farther out have yet to get the message.

As far as I can tell, interstellar travel precludes either a) being immortal, since moving from star A to star Z takes hundreds of billions of light years

or b) separating one's consciousness from the physical self, so as to travel space without the hindrance of the physical body tagging along

IMO 99% of UFO sightings can be explained through natural, earthly means. The other 1% however, is very intriguing.

Radio wave don't travel at the speed of light, but I know what you're saying.

Radio waves and light waves are both examples of electromagnetic radiation and travel at the same speed, commonly called the speed of light".

UFOs and aliens are not the same thing. UFOs are just unidentified flying objects. Whether some of them have aliens aboard is another matter.

If a creature has 5 appendages, two arms , two legs, one head, it probably isn’t an alien. Some suggest that the” Greys, “, typical alien small, big eyes, big head, come from a super earth planet with a small red dwarf star, the dim red star little sunlight, big eyes, the small size because of the increased gravity. Another suggestion is that the greys are actually hybrids ,organic and machine or just machines. Others say the greys don’t actually exist , but look like what people expect intelligent advanced creatures to look like. Another alien species is said to resemble reptiles. The reptilians have bad intentions for our planet, some aliens are said to resemble a preying Mantis or other insectlike but human sized creatures.Most likely , if our planet is being visited by alien spaceships, the occupants are machines with AI just like our advanced probes  are, as interstellar space travel takes centuries and organic critters aren't  robust enough for that kind of journey.

Just to be clear, a light-year is a unit-of-measure of distance. One light-year is approximately equal to 5.88 trillion miles.

Puzzling to me......from satellite they claim they can photograph a golf ball on a lawn in amazing detail.....but always a mystery they can’t photo a UFO in detail from ½ mile or closer.......

The aliens made the machines. If they have spindly fingers and huge eyes, maybe that's because of their integration with technology. Or on the flip side, maybe they've been successful as a species in spite of their spindly fingers, because they invented technology to overcome their physical limitations. I think the general point is that the physical nature of an alien species could be heavily affected by their technological advancement.

This is assuming that us Earthlings have a full and complete understanding of physics, which we clearly do not. It's entirely possible that an alien species would have a better understanding of physics than we do, especially if they're capable of interstellar travel. Perhaps they've developed a method to overcome the speed of light limitation, maybe some sort of telescope that use quantum entanglement? Perhaps they have a different type of technology that can detect intelligent life? Perhaps they just send millions of probes out, and chase down the probes that report life? The possibilities are (literally) endless.

I think humans tend to think too small when talking about aliens (or any supernatural beings). You keep trying to fit these creatures into your tiny understanding of the nature of the universe. If we even know enough to label it as "understanding".

Our understanding of the universe is woefully incomplete and we know less than we don't know. Any being capable of interstellar travel will be so far advanced that they will appear to us as magicians or gods. They will be able to manipulate the physical universe in ways that we aren't even capable of understanding. They might not occupy the same physical dimensions as us. They might not even be "alive", in our sense of the word. They will not obey the "laws of physics" as we understand them.

We're basically like that uncontacted island tribe south of Sri Lanka, multiplied by a million. Imagine bringing that tribe to CERN in Switzerland, or taking them for a ride in an SR-71 Blackbird. Imagine taking a modern rifle, airplane, or electromagnet, or bic lighter, and showing it to a caveman. With aliens, we're the uncontacted tribe. We're the cavemen.

If aliens ever do come to the Earth and make contact, God have mercy on us all.

I wonder if the lights could be annoyingly bright because UFO drivers [pilots??]  might be like earthling drivers.... frequently "forget" to put 'em on low-beam.  wink

GOOGLE 'Cargo Cult' to gain a sense of the paleolithic view of modern technology.

Bright lights might suggest very crowded airspace or poor vision in dim light.
Maybe they stop for bathroom breaks? Earth being the latrine of the galaxy.

I have LED lights inside a few of my commonly used kitchen cupboards.
Open the door, they come on. Never a hunt for a spice or herb any more.

UFOs are real aliens are real just look at the hundreds of stone megalithic sites across the Earth that were build before the invention of the wheel. Look at the Great Pyramid how precise the interior was constructed. Either the people back then knew of and used technology that was lost over time or they had help. If they had technology that can move 50 ton granite blocks where did they get this technology? And if they were mear mortal humans did they have help constructing these megalithic sites?

I had a secret camping spot in southern Alberta where 2 rivers came together.

There was a cliff with a big flat rock sticking out on the upstream side with the rivers on each side below.

I'd go there after evening shift on a Friday after work & set up with my sleeping bag & a few beverages to unwind.

I was sitting there under the stars when a big silent triangle of lights slowly passed over.

The next morning I went to my friends house nearby to go camping for the rest of the weekend.

His neighbour was there that worked graveyard as luggage handler at the airport,

He said there was a UFO report that night! It was heading north!

UFOs are commonly sighted all over Central and South America - with the frequency expanding faster in the past decade than it has in North America. Cordoba, a city in Argentina, is considered to be the go-to hotspot for viewing UFOs in South America, although there have been a number of compelling sightings in Brazil over the past 20 years.

This is one of my favorite subjects to discuss having witness two UFOs so far one being this past May but I have a suspicion as to what that sighting actually was.

There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy.... to paraphrase Shakespeare. Just imagine what Archimedes or Pythagoras would say about quantum mechanics.... or radio for that matter.

Our inability to comprehend the intricacies of the universe(s) around us does not mean that said universe(s) follow the "rules" we imagine to be in play. After all, heavier-than-air flight was deemed illogical and impossible ---- until it wasn't. Star Trek's "transporter" was dismissed as sci-fi fluff - until the Higgs boson was discovered and quantum superposition became a "thing".

My girlfriend is an alien. I never saw her flying saucer, but she flew here somehow from South America with her alien family.

Fwiw, while camping a month ago my wife and I saw 3 "strange" objects far to the WNW of us, just at sundown.  One was shaped like a v-e-r-y l-o-n-g balloon, positioned vertically, except the "bulb" was at the bottom. The other two were elongated whitish ovals moving horizontally at a relatively slow rate .... 'til they disappeared behind behind trees in the distance.  I called the couple in a neighboring campsite over, and they were also of the opinion that 'twern't planes, helicopters, weather balloons or drones.  In the following days I saw no news (?) reports. I sent an email to the Manitoba planetarium, but they apparently weren't/aren't interested enough to even acknowledge my email.  So, until I learn differently, they're just run-of-the-mill UFOs.

Well, if these aliens are so advanced and intelligent that they can travel billions of miles through space, why do they keep abducting the dumbest people on Earth?
