Photo taken in 1951 New Zealand,...Is this the way Taffy arrived ??
This photograph was determined to be a lenticular cloud, but if you saw this in 1950, had no Internet, and the rest of the world was freaking out about UFOs, "flying saucer" seems a pretty logical guess.(Acknowledgement to Digg.com for this article)

I was only 2 then, so the cap didnt work Tom. It does look like a cloud formation in Regs post.
But there must be somebody or thing out there what with all the endless billions of galaxy's out there. Why should we be the only ones, the odds are astronomical ( no pun intended) :steer:

Hi The following may be of interest to you .
"Astronomers are standing on a “great threshold” of space exploration that could see evidence of extra-terrestrial life being discovered within the next 20 years, an expert has claimed.
The idea that there is life beyond the Earth seems “inevitable”, given the immensity of the universe, according to Dr Sara Seager, a US planetary scientist.
In the coming decades, “chemical fingerprints” of life in the atmospheres of planets orbiting nearby stars could be found by the next generation of space telescopes, she said.
Writing in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Dr Seager, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), said: “We can say with certainty that, for the first time in human history, we are finally on the verge of being able to search for signs of life beyond our Solar System around the nearest hundreds of stars.”
Astronomers now know that statistically, every star in our galaxy, the Milky Way, should have at least one planet, and small rocky worlds like the Earth are common.

“Our own galaxy has 100 billion stars and our universe has upwards of 100  billion galaxies — making the chance for life elsewhere seem inevitable based on sheer probability,” said Dr Seager.

In the next decade or two, a handful of “potentially habitable” exoplanets — planets that do not orbit the Sun but a different star — will have been found with atmospheres that can be studied in detail by sophisticated space telescopes, she said.

The first of these “next generation” telescopes will be Nasa’s James Webb Space Telescope, due to launch in 2018.

It will be able to analyse the atmospheres of dozens of “super-Earths” —rocky planets somewhat larger than Earth — including several that could harbour life. Studying a planet’s atmosphere for signs of life involves capturing starlight filtering through its gases.

Different elements absorb different wavelengths of light, providing information about the atmosphere’s make-up.

Living things, from bacteria to large animals, are expected to produce “biosignature” gases that could be detected in a planet’s atmosphere. These include oxygen, ozone, nitrous oxide, and methane.

The problem faced by scientists is that some of these, such as methane, can be generated by geological processes as well as life. The likelihood of “false positives” could be reduced by searching for rarer biosignature gases, said Dr Seager.

She added: “We stand on a great threshold in the human history of space exploration. If life is prevalent in our neighbourhood of the galaxy, it is within our reach to be the first generation in human history to finally cross this threshold and learn if there is life of any kind beyond Earth.”
