Let's be honest, it's not UFOs or marvel mystery planes. It's most likely atmospheric reflections. Still, we enjoyed going to the viewing area after dark and hanging out with other watchers. My daughter (12) thought it was really cool and I enjoyed myself as well.
We saw the lights quite well although I understand some nights they are not visible. Perhaps if we hasn't seen anything, I'd be writing a different review.
There were a bunch of young people there who I assume were college students from the nearby college in Alpine. I'm sure some were drinking and doing other things college kids do but they weren't obnoxious and I had no problem with them being there. Everyone was just chilling out, chatting, that sort of thing.
