While on a treadmill at my gym a couple of hours ago I saw (apparently) that same video on a Spanish language station from Austin. What I saw was a round circle of about six bright lights.

I saw only a single light in this video and maybe a dark mass above it--an artifact? What i saw were still images, I think, and no motion.

Can anybody verify that this video had multiple lights in a round pattern?

I guess with CGI and Drones any UFO videos can now be easily explained away, real or not.

Here's a thread that shows the drones eye view.

Wheres the part where it rises vertically at at mach speed?

A drone cannot make a vertical jump at that kind of acceleration... prove me wrong with a youtube vid.

Ok, 1. I didn't mean that was the exact same moment and drone. Just pointing out that there most definitely were drones there. 2. How do you know the actual speed? Mach? Did you use some method to calculate it? And 3.How can you tell the distance from the camera filming it? A closer, smaller object (drone) would appear quicker to our eyes.

This is one of the first videos I managed to find.

Skip to 2:38 to see the vertical acceleration part.

Also bear in mind this is not a large one. there are many sizes and types some much faster than others, but as you can see they are very quick.

A video of a dronecam overlooking the protests. It's a possibility, s&f for the video anyway op

Hah, these drones are making it out to be the new Chinese lantern-which it being lit makes it look like, whether balloon or swamp gas.

This explains the source in question:

Vincent Smith was perplexed by what he saw on the TV—a bright object slowly moving through the sky over Hong Kong. He apparently recorded the broadcast, and then recorded a video of his television as he replayed the broadcast to point out the UFO.

He sent his video to local media outlet the Hamilton Advertiser. The Hamilton Advertiser describes that the UFO “is seen flying diagonally before landing on a building and then shooting off vertically and at speed.”

I don't think it lands on the building, may be closer to the bridge, though, either way appears very large.

Likely to be the drone that was filming the crowd.


I have to disagree there..sternly lol..this is a UFO..standard..looks consistent with the 100s i have seen..in fact IT came back to visit the other night...i wish they would stop by for a tea..

Can anyone say why a drone filming the crowd would be completely lit up with green light like that? I can't think of a function that would serve.

Gotta go with bird.


So there are green luminescent birds now?

I'm always amazed how a squadron of people come in to debunk, almost like an agenda...

I'm not swayed either way, both are possibilities, no one is getting answers from people on the ground
which is what we need. What I'm saying is that calling that a drone(with no other evidence) is NLBS even though I've seen drones
and how they fly, I've seen UFO's too, maybe you don't have that familiar basis. I'm not saying its not a drone, I'm just saying you're making the call with little to no evidence or reasoning.

That's what it is, or you can call it a quadcopter if you like, and they can easily do what is seen in the OP's video, and they have incredibly disciplined flight control.
Here's a whole heap at once,

Too bad they cut the film off before the fast ascent (sarcasm, that most likely was not the UFO in question).

There's no way that's a camera drone. Heres why.
1.That kind of acceleration potential would beg for crashes. It would be too hard to control.
2. With a light that bright the operator would be virtually assured of lens flare.
3. It would be uncomprehensible that any camera operator would put anything green near the CCD of a camera given green is the worst possible color for rendering natural human skin tones. It makes people look like sick zombies.

Drone my balls. Its definitely a UFO. Debunk that!


^^ Nails it.

Dude this is time lapsed - none of these are moving as fast as the one in the video. Granted - accuracy may be achievable with GPS and gyroscopic tracking - but I've flown a quad-copter, one with some serious juice, and it did not have those kind of ascension capabilities. That thing went up how many hundred feet in a couple of seconds? Don't buy it. Maybe 50 ft/s on something with serious horsepower; and it would have to be Serious horsepower to achieve that with all of the control mechanisms and cameras on the drone that flew the crowd.

Guaranteed the actual drone had an over-sized antenna, PTZ HD cameras, and likely a full on-board computer with what I would assume was enlarged 'WiFi' ( or some other means ) to transmit control signals from home base to the cameras. A single HD PTZ camera is like 5 lbs... This thing had at least two. Plus any other equipment I've hypothesized; potentially - I might go as far as to say that this is a 40 - 50 lb drone.

They would have had to dump $5000 into a drone that can carry all of that equipment and ascend that quickly. Just to film the crowd? I think not.

Also - like mcChoodles mentioned; the green light generated by the craft in the OP would be entirely present in the video footage; but we see no sign. And if the 'camera drone' just so happened to be generating a green light that's bigger than the windows on the buildings at the same distance, how much money did they spend on a !@$$ing green light to do ONE pass over the crowd with it? No blinking or flashing like a flight indicator? What's the point?

I'd be curious - anyone have the time to see if the camera drone happens to catch its own reflection in a window or something? Seems like a quick and easy way to debunk the disbelievers.

I buy it.

Magical Golden Dragon since it in China.

If it was Japan, it could of been Goku riding a Nimbus cloud. If this was in Greece, it would be a phoenix or Egypt probably Ra. If it was in ancient Isreal, it would of been a Seraphim.

Since when did Cops put bright lights on a small floating camera, especially Asian Cops? That little toy is asking to get shot.

Looks a lot like what I saw back in 1964.

Did we have drones back then?

If its a drone, and one of ours, I'm certainly in awe of the technology considering the thing went from level flight to vertically up the way with what appears to be a tremendous velocity. I wish the person had managed to track the thing so we could see how far up it actually went.

Me too. It's almost exactly what I saw in 1964.

I saw a disk/cigar shape, self-luminous in a white/yellow glow. At about 4:30 in the afternoon, on a sunny clear day.

It moved exactly like this object, then shot straight up until it was no longer visible.

We barely had computers in 1964.

Parts of it are time-lapsed. The point of that video was to indicate the similarity of shape of the light at a relatively small distance. Close up you can see the light is obviously round, further away, the light takes on the shape of old TV screen, and that's exactly what you see in the OP's video, especially in full-screen. Furthermore, it doesn't hover above a building as the video man says, it's in front of that building and much closer to the camera that it is to the building. The rate of climb it not so quick either, easy for most drones. Go to the 1.57 mark in this video,



I'm satisfied that this is a drone, the video I posted on the first page is HD footage from a drone looking at the protesters, it includes the ascent, and is most likely operated by a pro collating info for the press or TV or both. Some of the more advanced types can stay up long enough to be practicable for the purpose, say a half-hour and more.
It's all pretty moot in some ways, drones and performing drones have bugjiggered the 'lights in the sky' UFO for the most part anyway.
I will add, do some stop motion in the OP's video to see just where the 'object' enters the screen, (bearing in mind, the video man knows that too and fecks about with the camera as he videos a video he has recorded of a BBC news broadcast video from his TV).
Anyway, use the stop-start motion button, and you will see the, 'object' actually appears in front of a building much, much closer than the one it was supposed to hover over, that building is to the left and has colour changing lighting and the, 'object' comes in at the near top of the screen, (you will see it pass by what looks like two purple coloured windows, (probably not windows at all but just appear to be) at the top of that building. All the time the videoman is messing with the camera, but you will see the pass by of that building using the stop-start motion button. That same building is in the approach of what we know is a drone, in the drone video on the first page.
