Recently, a video has surfaced from a security cam from the east side of the Mississippi of some unexplained lights appeared over the St. Louis arch during a thunderstorm. This could have very well been a drone capturing footage although at the height at which the light first appears and the intensity of it, I would assume its is of extraterrestrial origin... What say you ATS?

UFO LIGHTS OVER STL ARCH

That is interesting. I'd love to think they're just drones, however, the flashes towards the end of the video are definitely not drone-related unless they spontaneously exploded or were shot.

The brightness of the lights could be due to IR camera setting. The descending lights could be aircraft flying in inclement weather coming in and out of clouds for a windy approach to... is there an airport in St. Louis?

The two on the left could be police or news choppers, whatever. I didn't see any zippity do dah flight characteristics that would lead me to believe they were any but terrestrial origin.

Looks like there was a storm going on in the background as well. UFO videos over cities are often the worst because of the amount of variables. Especially in the age of drones.

Here is another angle of the same light from the phone of an eye witness.

I would expect lights of aircraft to change intensity too depending on cloud cover and what direction they are heading.

If straight toward the lens then they are brightest, turning away, they 'go out'.

Slow descent is landing approach pattern from afar through broken clouds. It probably looks like that every night there, same lights, same pattern of approach.

Are there any cameras on the arch? Any chance we could find 3rd or even a 4th point of view? It's a city, i imagine there to be cameras in almost every conceivable location. We should be able to find something with a better close up

The above video appears to show something different than the first. it is unmoving, unlike lights in OP video.

Too bad he didn't keep recording. I would have...

I don't have time to do a search, others can chime in. Love to see more angles. If other people recorded something weird the same night in the same time frame that makes it more interesting.

There is an airport in St. Louis but the arch is not even near planes' flight paths. Planes don't go near the arch or downtown at all really.a reply to: intrptr

The most interesting "light" was the one at 2:32:40 on the time-stamp. You see it on the left side of the image. That thing descends quickly and lands on the ground without slowing down much, then turns off its light. If the video were sped up, I'd say it was a helicopter, but it's supposedly doing a normal speed playback at that moment. Very interesting!

Nobody cares... This used to generate threads that went for pages.

Thanks for bringing it OP.

There are two more that have not been highlighted.

At 2.31.20 one blinks in and out instantly above the arch

At 2.31.29 one appears for a few seconds inside the arch.

I have one idea.
I fly drones daily. I use one at my full time job as a mine engineer, and I also own a UAV survey company on the side. I recently purchased something for use on one of my drones, in our underground mine. They are called Lume Cubes.

They spit out 1500 lumen each, and can be controlled by my ipad. It has 9 different brightness settings, as well can strobe.
www.lumecube.com...

You can attach as many of the cubes as you want to the drone, provided it can carry that pay load. I have 2 on my underground drone, giving off 3000 lumen. Its bright as hell.

Earthquake lights? The New Madrid is in that area although it's usually further southward.

The strangest moment in the first video, is off to the left when it goes into the clouds then drops out TOWARDS the camera then banks extremely fast in a hook like pattern the settles. That maneuver couldnt have been done with a person inside the craft, that would be some extreme g's

I see the night skies over metro St. Louis all of the time. Those lights are not from planes. They seem a little too high to be drones, and the weather that you are seeing approaching the St. Louis area was still many miles to the southwest when this footage was captured.

I noticed that maneuver also. The differences in how the lights moved independent of one another makes this really interesting for me. I can hardly believe that anyone would suggest airplanes.

From what I read, this strange light was recorded between 2:30 AM and 3:00 AM. According to the reports I read, nobody at nearby Scott Air Force Base and the Federal Aviation Administration knew anything about the source of the light. Check out the YouTube clip showing footage of this incident from a surveillance camera. Pay close attention from 4:50 to 5:00 into the video. I'm not an expert on drones, but doesn't it appear that this object actually reached the ground, as if it was landing?
