The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Nuke it from orbit.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Meh. They've already reconfigured "Adobe Animate CC," formerly known as Adobe Flash CC, to export to HTML5, so devs who know ActionScript won't skip a beat.

I was flash-free about five years ago. I missed stuff others could see but I just wasn't willing to have it on my computator.

"Declined in popularity," lol. Flash had its charms but was a malware magnet.
