Despite the millions of people who have claimed to have seen aliens, the precise number of persons who have genuinely seen aliens is the same as the number of conspiracy theories concerning vaccinations that have proven to be true: Zero.
In reality, as evidenced by a recent viral video, some of these “sightings” might have been owls.
Daniel Holland, a Twitter user, captioned the video, “I’m now certain that folks who claim to have seen aliens have actually seen young owls,” and it’s difficult not to agree.
After a brief tour of a construction site, the film reveals the newborn barn owls, and brace yourselves. It turns out that baby owls aren’t as cute as you might think.
Even after learning they are owls, many people continue to believe they are aliens.

We might have seen.

If this is how people react when they see baby owls for the first time, it doesn’t exactly fill us with confidence for when aliens finally make contact with humans.
