    Interesting vid!

    " has raised speculation that it could have been a UFO."

    Of course it was a UFO if unidentified ;-). A lot of people seem to think UFO means aliens. I think that was a one of those cylindrical helium balloons.
  • a lot of "UFO's" can be explained by iridium flares....

    they're flashes caused by the sun reflecting on the mirrored surfaces of satellites and space shuttles.

    They give a variety of effects too!!

    I dunno what it is about UFO's and aliens that i like, i think it might be more to do with me wanting it to be real rather than believing its real

    More than likely, it was pretty high up so could have even been a plane, its to far away to see the wings so just the fuselage is visable

    I have seen many things - and with other people present, but husually have an explanation for them.

    Clouds (ie the high irrdescent ones and lenticular) are common 'UFOs' as are far away planes with the lights shining straigh forward. And police helicopters.

    8) There is no such thing as UFOs, what you saw was an illusion caused by the sun reflecting on the mirrored surfaces of a satellite.

    Gotta love a global phenomenon, love it when the military catches the stuff on gun cameras and what not.

    Written testimony and case details in English are interesting n just one of hundreds of reported incidents worldwide captured on film but never seem to make it into the English speaking world.

    Chicago O'Hare airport incident grabbed some headlines a few months back when some pilots, tower and ground staff watched an object for a while then watched it burst through cloud bank leaving a big hole.

    Object looked triangular in shape, could have been the aurora?

    Deny it all they want im sure it exists.
    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

    doubt it, that thing looks as though it appears out of nowhere and the pilots say it just appeared. According to Janes defence "aurora" was moth-balled in favour of more conventional reconnaissance, the Russians used to track it so far coming out of groom lake then lose it when it went LEO apparently. No wonder the pentagon's got a 2 trillion budget deficit with black budget projects like that being moth-balled. lol.

    I once saw an "angular object" flying very low and very fast over a lake, about 5 seconds later a Tornado went in the same direction and about the same altitude.

    I was coming home from school and my only sensible explanation was that I was having a very very real daydream.

    I once saw some sort of fighter jet refulleing in the sky. Now that is one weird sight!
