I live 10 miles from the Spacex Launch Pad on Kennedy Space Center. There have been ETs in this area for decades. I've met them. The ones I met never got out of the ship, it simply hung motionless in the sky over my back yard. They read everything in my memory and said they were my friends from my childhood. I never saw them or that ship, I would have remembered it for certain. The thing was dead silent and left in the wink of an eye and no sonic boom. I'm an expert but I don't know how it worked. The thing was covered in some sort of space filth.At this point, it feels like it's a matter of time before one of many planned launches (SpaceX or otherwise) eventually leads to contact with extraterrestrial life. Having read and watched so much science fiction, imagining what these beings would look like comes as second nature to me.
So, I'm wondering what the rest of the community thinks. When and if we do stumble across sentient extraterrestrial beings, what do you suppose they'll look like?
