According to a new National Geographic Channel poll reported in USA Today, more than a third of Americans believe in UFOs. This is perfectly understandable. There’s a lot of stuff up there and if you’re not an amateur astronomer, it’s likely that on a clear night you would see at least one thing you couldn’t identify. UFO, after all, just stands for unidentified flying object. I tend to assume that if I can’t identify something, well, someone in the Delaware Valley Amateur Astronomers probably could. But that’s just me.
But the most interesting part of the survey was this:
"•Nearly 65% think Barack Obama would be better suited than Mitt Romney to handle an alien invasion.
Extraterrestrial beings could not be reached for comment."
