Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

I've been running the SETI@home screensaver for eleven years now.

I figure if I help find 'em I get to name them.

Every newspaper in the world will announce that the "Kha'-mel-toh" race has been discovered.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

They move insanely fast with no sound at all. Once they fly away you have about 4-5 seconds before they get out of sight. And when its two balls of light, they fly away in perfect sinc with eachother. With an occasional barrel roll (but always keeping the same exact perfect gap/distance from the other).
You may be seeing reflections of things located many miles away, like a busy road or brightly lit intersection. This is called a superior mirage. The higher you are, the farther away you can see, and reflected lights may appear in the sky on those special nights when it's warmer in the mountains than down below (temperature inversion).
If you are standing atop a mountain 1 km high... your horizon should be 112.88 km away.

From the top of Mauna Kea on Hawaii, an extinct volcano about 4 km high... the horizon should be about twice as distant, 226 km.

On the other hand, standing on the beach... the horizon is only 5 km distant.

I have a nephew at 29 palms and him and his friends say it's coming somewhere from the east.
"The superior mirage forms when cold air lies beneath relatively warmer air, a conditions known to meteorologists as a temperature inversion. In this condition, light rays refract, or bend, toward the colder (and denser) air -- that is, downward. This bending causes the image of the object to appear to us to be above its actual position because our brains assume the light rays have taken a straight path from the object to our eyes. The rate of increase of temperature with height (the temperature gradient) affects how the light rays travel from the object to our eyes and thus how we see the resulting image pattern. The superior mirage may cause the image (or parts thereof) of an object to appear:
  • visible even though the object is actually located below the geometric horizon (the line of sight drawn from our eye tangent to the surface of the earth);
  • lifted well above its actual position -- for example, a boat appearing to sail in the clouds;
  • inverted from its normal image;
  • multiplied and either upright or inverted;
  • taller, larger or closer than it actually is; or
  • shorter, smaller or further away than it actually is.

When an image appears much higher in the sky than the actual object's position, the condition is termed looming. When an image appears much taller, the condition is termed towering. When an image appears much shorter, the condition is termed stooping."
