As someone who spends an enormous amount of time on this subject, I try to prepare myself with the proper equipment and techniques to take full advantage of a UFO sighting, should I ever have one. But gear and methodology will only get you so far in a UFO sighting, another important factor is the nerves of the witness.
UFO sightings are pretty varied, and they can be ambiguous and rather "bland". But there are some sightings that have been apparently dramatic and downright scary for some witnesses. As fascinated as I would be with seeing a brontosaurus in my backyard, it would scare the crap out of me because I have no experience in observing dinosaurs in person. What a nerve wracking experience that would be!
With the apparent risks of injury or even abduction in UFO sightings, this fear factor is taken quite a bit further than seeing an extinct dinosaur for the first time. We don't really know much about what happens in and around UFOs or what they even are.
If you are presented with a UFO sighting, how might you react? Would you watch in awe or take notes? Would you run away, or watch from behind a corner? Would you be tempted to run, but remain out of curiosity or necessity?
And probably the more interesting question: How do you determine if your safety is at risk during a sighting when we as a people have very little experience and collective knowledge in the threat analysis of UFOs?
This is a little distant from my typical line of questioning, but I believe it to be a valid and relevant question. The witness is an important part of UFO case investigations.
