At least according to NFL Star Quarterback Aaron Rogers.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers believes in UFOs.
But that’s because Rodgers (and two other witnesses) spotted one on a cold, snowy night in rural New Jersey 11 years ago. And once you hear his story, you may believe in UFOs, too.
During a candid interview with comedian Pet Holmes on his podcast You Made it Weird on Wednesday, Aaron, 32, detailed the crazy story. According to Philly.com, his demeanor changed instantly, from light-hearted and humorous to dead serious.
That fateful night, Rodgers was staying with the family of friend and former teammate. After a long night enjoying an eight-course Italian dinner, “there was a weird siren in the distance, so we go outside,” Rodgers recalled, CBS Sports added.
“We” included his friend Steve and Steve’s brother.
It was after midnight and overcast, but Aaron recalled “there was enough light from the moon reflecting off the clouds,” so they could see clearly. And what they saw in the sky next Rodgers described as like the movie Independence Day.
“It was a large orange, left-to-right-moving object. Because of the overcast nature of the night and the snow, you couldn’t make out…. It was behind kind of the clouds we were seeing, but it was definitively large in the night sky, moving from left to right.”
The object disappeared and Aaron said he and his friends looked at each other and asked, “What in the f— was that?'”
Thirty seconds later, Rodgers said he heard “sounds of four fighter jets flying above their heads.” This, according to Aaron, is pretty typical in UFO sightings. Two things, he said, are connected such phenomena.
“One is the presence of fighter jets. And two, there’s a lot of sightings around nuclear power plants,” Rodgers said. “So to tie it all together, the alarm we heard was from 30 miles out, was a nuclear power plant that had an alarm that went off… Again, it was like 12:30 at night here. It was me, Steve, and his brother that saw it.”
Understandably, Aaron has been hesitant to share his story, most likely because it would be met with skeptical eyebrow raises. But after a decade, the strange sight is burned in his. One time, Rodgers said he reached out to another witness to talk about it.
UFO sightings are frequently reported in South Jersey, especially near the Salem Nuclear Plant, so Rodgers is in good company. His sighting, however, was never reported in the news, “in typical fashion,” he noted.
WTF? Maybe Aaron is trying to get ahead of the NFLs Concussion Lawsuit. Too many shots to the head and now he's hallucinating and that's worth big money. Well...I suppose he should be glad that at least he didn't get the old anal probe. Most of the time when I watch TV shows about UFOs they feature white trash women who live in trailer parks who are convinced that they have been abducted by aliens, and these abductions always seem to include an anal probe.
Of course this begs he question...if these aliens are tens of thousands of years ahead of us technologically and they are capable of building spacecraft that can go faster than the speed of light which is an impossibility according to our understanding of the laws of physics, than what possible scientific value could they possibly derive from repeatedly anally probing white trash women? Can't they invent an X-Ray machine? Even our primitive human race was able to do that.
