Space Aliens On Prowl?

HAVE YOU noticed that we haven't had many UFO sightings lately?

It has been quite a few years since everyone was buzzing about flying saucers and such.

UFO sightings seem to happen in spurts. We go years and never hear much about them and then, all of a sudden, people claim to be seeing flying saucers and weird little men on every street corner.

I remember that happening back in the early 1970s. In fact, there was one winter--1971-72, I believe--when hardly a night went by without a UFO sighting.

The same was true around 1950. Then, of course, we had people claiming that they were abducted by aliens (taken about spacecraft and studied) in the early 1990s.

It seems that, for some unknown reason, spacemen return to our planet about every 20 years (1950, 1970 and 1990).

When you start talking about space aliens landing on Earth you find that most people fall into one of two camps--either they laugh at you or their eyes get wide with excitement.

I'm one of those people who gets excited about UFOs. Let's face it, spacemen do make for great stories and I am a writer. But all that aside, I still don't discount the possibility that there are other forms of life out there in our vast universe.

After all, there are a lot of stars with planets revolving around them up there in that night sky.


That brings up a question that has always puzzled me. Why do flying saucers (or other alien spacecraft) seem to appear only at night?

Remember Cat Woman? Didn't she come here from another planet? Maybe that's what the government is hiding from us in the Roswell case, that spacemen and cats have the similar DNA. Maybe that's why both species prowl at night.

What about X-ray vision? That would account for aliens landing at night. Superman had X-ray vision and he came from another planet.

Of course, these spacemen could be landing at night because they want to sneak in while we're sleeping. But how would they know that we sleep at night? City lights shining out in space all night would indicate otherwise.


Could it be that space aliens have spies among us, creatures that contact Planet X on a regular basis and provide information on human behavior?

Now that I think about it, cats are out prowling at about the same time each night that people are seeing UFOs. Are cats really space creatures in disguise, spies who report to their superiors on a nightly basis?

This landing-at-night business really has me mystified. If spacemen come here to make contact with Earthlings, why wouldn't they come during the middle of the day when we are out and about?

Surely their cat sources (if that's how they're getting their information) would explain that humans are far more accessible in the daytime than in the middle of the night. We might greet them warmly at 2 p.m. but take a shot at them at 2 a.m. We don't like someone--or some thing--disturbing our sleep.

I'm starting to get a little worried. If UFO sightings ramp up every 20 years or so then we are about due for another visitation around 2010. Want to take bets that we don't start hearing about more and more flying saucers in the next year or so?

This brings up a scary point. Friday night this strange cat showed up at my back doorstep and for three days seemed intent on getting into my house.

One day he sneaked in and you know where I found him? Playing with the telephone cord in the kitchen! You think that Kit T might have been trying to phone home?

Needless to say, I handed that cat over to a neighbor in short order!

UFOs, cats, darkness!

Something to think about when you turn out the light tonight and hear a "Meow!"

When Americans went to the moon, NASA would never have even considered landing on the dark side of that heavenly body. The astronauts wanted to see where they were going.

When it comes to alien spacecraft sightings on Earth, however, it seems that almost every single one occurs at night. Even those spacemen who come down and create crop circles do their work at night. Why?

Could it be that spacemen are not bothered by the dark? I've seen drawings of some of those creatures--like the one that crashed at Roswell, N.M.--and they have great big eyes, almost like cat eyes. Well, cats can see fine in the dark. Are spacemen from other planets somehow related to cats?
