finally saw the video. If they were tethered togeter, then why don't the lights ever move together? the tethers only work ONE way. The lights looked
like they were fixed to one ridged unit. (however, I only saw very short clips. Please direct me to unscrubbed versions)
Also the lights are disc shaped. If they were sky lanterns you'd see the volumetric fade from the greatest light intesity source to top of the
lantern. nothing like that in the video. The light sources appear to be flat disks.
And if they were flares, you should see a perfect circle of illumination, not a disk shape. Flares burn in a 360 degree, so from the distance these
were shot, you would see the 2D circular shape of a spherical illumination pattern.
Anyone ever see a C-130 drop anti missle flares? When I lived in Gulf Breeze there were people who thought these were UFO's But when you see them
it's pretty obvious they are flares. The biggest obvious reason is that they DO NOT emit a clean steady light. The light from a flare is intermitant
as the element is burned. They are not a precision instrument.
And DAMN! Where are these people getting ballons that can lift a FLARE? Tell me, and I'll do the same hoax in Atlanta!
Also, Flares have intense heat! So are you telling me that they hoaxer balanced these flares perfectly so the that flame ALWAYS stayed away from the
fishing line? Eventually the flare would tip either down or up depending on how it was ballanced. And all that heat going up would melt the line. And
remember as the element of the flare burns, the weight of the flare changes!
So LED's. OK, lets see the "wreckage" from all this. Let's see this recreated.
Still to me, they are lights in the sky. Interesting lights, but still just lights.
But if you just want to accept Meridith Viera saying, "It was a Hoax", great! Like I said, if we believed what was on TV, this site wouldn't exist.
But when a guy is a pilot & states that these were not flares, I take that over the damage control big media anyday of the week.
Now that story with Meridith & the probe type UFO pics that are clear as day! Gimmie a break! I could produce those shots with 3D Studio MAX and
photoshop in less than a day!!
At the same time, I truely believe that if I had video of everything I've seen, (I stopped counting after 30 sightings), pretty much no one would
accept it. So to me, the whole thing about catching a UFO on video now is subject to the ILM theory. What I mean by that, is that a PC is so powerful
now, you can take some good software and MAKE a ufo video.
What makes a sighting valid to me are multiple wittnesses, and GOOD wittnesses. I think cops, pilots & ex-military are good witnesses.
Also, I know some people in Pensacola FL, who have very good video of UFOs, but they refuse to release it to the public. The main reason is that they
have lives & businesses. The media is set up, (and I have to include the debunkers as part of the problem here), to ridicule & debase the people who
come forward. With that said. how much footage do you think is out there that won't be release because of fear of ridicule or loss of business?
I always follow the money on stuff like this. If the newest Phoenix lights are a hoax, who stands to gain from that hoax.
I don't really care if I am in the minority on my ability to see UFO's. I've always been very observant. When I was in the Marines, I saw a Ninja
in Japan, and no one believes that either. (He scampered on a wire & flipped back in the other direction in 2.5 seconds.) Crazy story but it happened.
I was the only one who saw it.
I'm all about debunking crap UFO footage. I supose it's because I've seen them, and it yanks my yodeler to see crap presented as anything close to
what I've seen. This is almost as bad as a guy who tells me he was in the Marines, in the 6th Marine Division. And I told him, "Dude...there are
only 4 divisions."
Hope this gives everyone something to think about
