Is the "first one" from Earth?

Is "here" a place on Earth?

No.

As the "first one" (which MCC has confirmed above is a physical object) doesn't come from earth then ....

(a) does it come from another planet ?

(b) is it a meteor?

According to this, there were a few similar events way before the Roswell one... One being the Jersey Devil happened in New Jersey, another was in Maracaibo, Venezuela, and also one in Sweden...

But the one crossed my mind was the Pyramids/Sphinx in Egypt... But I guess it's not a popular belief that those were after-effects of alien landings... Unless we're watching Stargate SG-1 etc...:)

Or, if meteors are considered, it could be this one in Antarctica...

It may have.

Yes, but beware.

No - Goa'uld, Ha'tak, Chaapa'ai or Ancients involved, the Tau'ri are safe from others but not from themselves.

No. As I have said, beware.

Lateral thinking needed.

I'm intrigued with this "sentence" with the capital "L" in the word "Land" and the three question marks...so

Is this one sentence or two sentences where the "first one" (whatever that might be) is asking approval or permission to "Land here"?

Truth.

Earth - That which you walk upon at the moment, no fantasy here.

Why are there three ":?:" 's. (Rhetorical question).

The riddle is a question, therefore the last ":?:"

The other two ":?:" 's are there to show that "first one" and "Land here" need more thought and may mean something other than what they imply.

One sentence or two sentences - Yes:?:

There is no asking of approval or permission to "Land here".

A meteor is just the visible path of a meteoroid entering the atmosphere, and after it hits the ground, it becomes a meteorite (like my earlier link of a certain Martian one)...

Some of them are called bolides, which cause huge impact craters on the Earth (there are over 150 found). Major ones include the "Meteor Crater" in Arizona (near Hud's place)... Such events are called "impact events", with the Tunguska event in Siberia being a prolific one...

There are also several ancient impact events/craters, such as the Chicxulub which was suggested as the one that wiped out the dinosaurs and the Tollmann's hypothetical bolide...

Am I on the right track? (I think not...:( )
