Umm, Yes I think its a UFO too.

Unidentified Flying-Chinese-Lanterns Object.

Yes the guy actually saw it, but the image is hard to distinguish. The spinning around is a worry for a top secret aircraft.

It was windy too, so Im surprised the flames lasted so long, but they seem to with well constructed lanterns.

Other real black triangles seem to have alternate flashing corner lights, generally not on all the time , or spin around in the wind.....tho the British BTs may be different.

Just seems too lanternish to be a nuts and bolts craft, to me.....more like wood, paper and string.

Still, too hard to tell, but either wa,y a good sighting and video......of something??

As another poster mentioned, if you ignore the main frame rate of the video, you can see the object, or rather, the individual ones, moving about in a "stop motion" way. If you apply a clock-face frame rate in your mind, tick, tick, tick, whilst watching it, you can see what's going on quite clearly.

At 2:41 onwards this effect can be seen quite clearly.

It is much more along the lines of a light sequence of some kind than chinese lanterns. It's hard to tell if the stop motion effect is actual movement, or if it's particular lights being switched on and off. If someone can stick such a thing to a quadcopter/drone then that's quite impressive, that right now is about the only earthly angle I can think of, sides maybe a clever projection onto clouds.

There does appear to be a fourth, blinker light. Again at 2:41 onwards when the movement of one of the "three" lights is apparent, a 4th light appears to move down to the left, the blinker light. This would probably relate to a laser projection. But it's true that it's definitely there and definitely caught on camera, too bad for him he has an ancient camera OR, as we should all learn to do, has not set it to HD! (my Samsung smart phone was defaulted to a low res)

So I'm going with 1. Laser projection 2. Drone with some lightboard/LED sequencer/sequencing attached 3. Genuine anomaly -- it is a pretty cool video whatever it is
The recent "ghost caught on Most Haunted" was also stop-motion...maybe it's back!

I will stick my oar in this one because some people on here just come out with the same old BS when it comes to something that does not fit within their narrow mindsets. I knew as soon as I watched the clip on YouTube that "Chinese lanterns" and "street light reflections" would be rolled out. Did you even watch the whole video?

First off, I don't believe it's a fake, it is exactly what an unexpected sigthing would be...chaotic and badly filmed on the woefully inadequate camera tech we carry around with us. Secondly, it needs to be examined by someone with a lot more know-how than me because what I see, is a fixed light at the apex of the triangle [which could be moving slowly] and the other lights blinking on and off in squence and not rotating around. But that's me, others may see it differently and I did notice the fourth light briefly appear that was already mentioned.

Is it a projection in the sky? Could be, but a projection of what exactly and why?
Is it Chinese lanterns? No because of the weather conditions.
Is it street light reflections? No because that's just ridiculous and there are four street lights, not three.
Is it aliens. I think not.
Is it ours. Highly likely.

Read the description under the clip on YouTube, it explains everything.

edit to add - The original video on mufon does not display the frame rate issues below and is in better quality The youtube video does not do it justice at all. Also there seems to be another report in Exeter the same day, different but the location isn't far from exmouth and the time is within 2 hours of the original


Hmm I have a few reservations with this video.

First off, why is it in 240p and heavily compressed? Lets assume this is shot with an iPhone due to the aspect ratio and autofocus, if he was using the first iphone capable of video recording it would still be 640x480. That said it's not impossible that he is recording with another older device with autofocus, but it would have to be a brick though to record at 240p.

Another issue is the framerate of the object as it doesn't match the framerate of the video, which seems odd. The object doesn't appear to be stutter-rotating as the lights that blink also seem to be stuck in this slower framerate.

He sounds genuine enough but due to the quality and the above there isn't really much to go on, congrats to the guy if it was real but unfortunately this isn't compelling enough evidence to prove or disprove anything.

Are there not supposed to some photos too?

That the witness took, supposedly revealing more detail?

I can't find them on the MUFON site, only the two videos.

Anyone find those?

Two Triangles where supposedly observed flying over the exact same location in September 2016.

Thanks for the more informed analysis. I wonder, if he actually was filming exotic technology [Earthly, of course], that it could maybe account for the discrepancies? It always strikes me as odd why anyone would fake something like this because the YouTube hits are a measly number so far and to me, at least, it would be a complete waste of time that could be spent doing something worthwhile. I find motives to be the most important aspect of anything faked.

I saw that in the MUFON description and wondered why they had not been at least linked to. This aspect makes me slightly suspicious but then again, maybe the pictures will appear.

They don't even need to be tied together.

Thanks for pointing them out, the HD versions of the videos, even though vertical, are much more intriguing. There's some weird stuff going on there!

Not too sure why the low quality versions have filtered down onto youtube and in local articles (and this thread), but they have, though one or two on youtube are in HD 720 at least. Presumably because "obfuscation happens" in this field...

There's a blue glow btw, you can even see that in the low quality versions. Chinese lanterns create an orange glow...?

After seeing the originals, it has a bunch of hallmarks for lasers, but I think it has even more hallmarks of a genuine sighting. We get playful foo-fighters here in the UK, and the traits I've seen of them elsewhere are also in these videos (there are 2 videos by the same witness, who I will add, I think did a pretty damn good job, now I've seen the originals). A particular trait of "them" is to hide their strangest "manoeuvres" in video glitches, moments where concentration is lost or camera is shook, and this video has a couple of those "special" moments. The part just after "**** me" and later when he starts to give a commentary and zoom out...very odd things happen there.

Anyway, it all seems to check out. The original videos gave me a folks might want to check those out before forming an opinion. I might apply some stabalization, but it'll be in vain so don't know if I can be a*'d!

Note, the image above ^ is facing West (not North).

Interesting comments so far. No way these are Chinese "lanterns" IMO. It's windy on the night of this sighting. How could "lanterns" hold this formation? More importantly how could "lanterns" rotate in perfect symmetry like what is shown in this new video clip I found concerning this sighting? Check out 3:15-3:45 into this clip. See these lights rotate? Also, did you see what appears TO BE AN ORB DART OUT FROM THE CENTER of this thing? This guy was STRUGGLING to focus on this object, whatever it was. The limitations on his phone camera probably are the same for all smart phones that attempt to focus on a faintly lit object in the night sky. Could this be a drone? I doubt it. Judging by the steadiness of this object on this windy night and the fact that it rotates smoothly at a slow speed, makes it highly unlikely that this is, even for an expensive drone flown by an expert operator. WHAT ABOUT THAT ORB?

Fair enough and point taken...but the lights in your example behave nothing like the lights in the OP's video, in regards to movement and sequenced blinking on and off. Also, the lights in the Op's video are clearly not constantly rising upwards as the Chinese Lanterns appear to do. I'm not knocking that some UFO sightings are mistaken lantern events but, as with anything, we cannot attribute them all to the same source.

Nice find again and yes, the light darting out can be clearly seen.

Nah, I don't think it is suspicious, just wanted to see what else could be gleaned from them, is all... :-)

I think it looks quite convincing, and that there is something there. Just not sure what...

My first thought was something projected but I don"t know now...

Interesting, anyway.

Effin ef!

This is the real thing fellas!! I never ever thought I would see this rotation on video!!! I have seen this motion in real life and I can tell you - it really looks like that in real life, when seen with your eyes, almost surreal. At one moment, the lights are in one place, then in the other they're at another. Ours, however, was rotating 90 degrees each time, and it appeared as if it just flickered into that position in less than a millisecond!

I even began wondering if this wasn't some sort of an illusion. I have seen this object on a lighted background 200 meters away... (from a mount top, it passed between our POV and town lights from below). Matte black. No noise. Perfectly vertically positioned (unlike a plane, which is horizontal and has a "nose" and "behind"). As big as a 2 floor house. Passed crazy close then vanished into the distance. I will never forget the rotation. That was the weirdest part from our 7 hour trip into crazyland.

Oh. My.

Thanks! An extremely rare S&F from me.

I posted on this thread before i left for work this morning and to be honest i only had a very brief glance at the Vid and not in full screen.

However i have now taken another look and in full screen, and would like to say this.

Over the past 35 - 40 years i have had recurring dreams about an alien invasion. There is quite a fair bit of detail to the dream but this is not the thread to post it on.

However what i can say is, what i am seeing here is identical to alien crafts that appear in the recurring dream. Very odd.

a reply to: alldaylong

In what way? Shape? Or movement? Vertical position? More details about what you've seen in your dreams?

I'm not a man who starts looking into dreams and believing they are prophetic... Unless, it's on a thread that I know has THE real thing in it... I've never even thought there would be a video that I'd be able to say this about. Ever.

This "stop-motion" rotation. I shall never forget.

So elaborate if you will.

You could u2u me.

I do think there has been 3-4 years of silence and now something's starting to move again.

I might do that thread I didn't wanna do...

The dream takes place in my home city. However landmarks have changed and in fact become Roman Empire buildings mixed with modern day buildings and traffic.

The time is late evening. I am outside in the city and the sky is pitch black, but as i look up there are literally hundreds of alien ships in the sky. I talk to a woman who i don't know who is standing next to me. I tell her to look up at the sky, and as we both do, there are triangle shaped craft rotating just like in the vid. That's just a brief description of the dream.

This is very weird.

posted on Apr, 28 2017 @ 05:48 PM
And btw I'm talking about the clearer version of the video. It does appear much smoother, but there's still that clock-hand like rigid movement to the rotation, as if the object's position "falls in place" every here and then.
