If they were saucers, why were the actual saucers hidden in the darkness? And just the lights. I always believed they were as the lights seemed to form saucers that for some reason were hidden.

  • No complaint. What I mean is if the aliens themselves hid the saucers and showed rather the lights, what would be their reason? – user114025 Aug 18 '19 at 18:15
