There are explanations for "flying saucers" other than ETClouds are very good at that ... [silent hovering]
What UFO believers generally disregard...there are good scientific explanations for a majority of UFO sightings.
I'm sure there are cases where the above explanations don't fit, and maybe they do warrant some research. The problem is that science requires funding, which in turn usually requires a good bet that the research will pay off in technology or fundamental science. It's hard to see how you could make that bet for UFO research.
There are huge amounts of data on UFOs and almost none of it testable or reliable.
What IS suggested is to examine scientific evidence AFTER the balloons and clouds are ruled out.
95% of the sightings are explained away as you suggest.I'm talking about the 5%. Let's find out what they're all about

There is a huge amount of reliable data but no formal testing and research procedures in place. Which, as JP suggests, requires funding. Read the book cited above and tell me that there is no testable or reliable data from the myriad pilots, scientists, generals and others who have already gone on record with radar information, ground tracings, and aerial photography.
one would have to fall out of the sky.
