I guess they can be real. My mom's friend saw one! Only it was light reflecting off the computer. My mom told her that and her friend said "thanks for ruining the aliens". I love that story. Funny to think that life on other planets is coming over to see US and people who see them are called crazy, yet at the same time we go to see THEM and they're screaming "Ahhh! Human!" To the alien mental hospital with them! UFO's are real. Anything unidentified that is flying is a UFO. I saw one of those. Then it became an IFO(identified flying object). It was spagetti.
