I thank you for your input. Let me put this in perspective for you. Have you seen anything in the sky that you cannot rationally explain? Even after
you have exhausted every possible rational explanation? Perhaps you have. Perhaps not. Either way, how you look at the world is no doubt coloured by
your mental make up, your personal experience of this world and how you interpret your reality.
I spent my younger years fascinated by UFOlogy, open-minded and intrigued by video and pictorial evidence suggesting, potentially, spectacular truths
that were yet to be revealed. Then, as I grew older, wiser, skepticism crept in, not least because I had not witnessed anything personally. In a way,
I felt cheated. I told myself that only two things would truly convince me; that I had incontrovertible proof through a personal encounter or
incontrovertible evidence through the international media and governments that UFOs do exist. None of that happened, so over the years I lost
Last year, myself and nine other individuals, at four seperate locations, all witnessed the same phenomenon. The location I witnessed at was the
second closest of the four witness locations, and the first closest were able to distinguish detailed structure of what they saw. Prior to this, I had
not personally witnessed chinese lanterns. (That catch all excuse for disbelievers to throw at believers to discredit or rubbish their arguments and
experiences). And so, in the first five seconds of what I witnessed, my rational and logical mind told me it must be lanterns or balloons of some
sort. It was only as what I was witnessing developed that I realised that what I, (and the eight others), were witnessing was intelligent, deliberate
movement. Not only that, but the light was at an intensity that I've never seen before, in any airborne object. I knew nothing about orbs back then.
But, when you see ten or eleven balls of energy fly past you in diagonally descending formation, changing speed, and direction, you know that what you
are seeing defies all rational explanation. When you then contact a group of three other witnesses, who were much closer to said orbs and described
them as having vibrating, pulsing undersides as they rose up, much like a jellyfish, again, you question much of what your understanding of this
reality and your place in it is.
Now, don't get me wrong, you are entitled to your opinion. And of course, you are also welcome to it. But I'd appreciate you keeping perhaps a
little bit more of an open mind about what you read and others personal experiences, before you try to discredit them with catch all chinese lantern
explanations and Youtube cod science video explanations.
By the way, in the three videos I have illustrated in this thread, can you explain to me why the lights that are illustrated all stay in a fixed
position in the sky, why the lights ingite in mid air, why they fade and blink out/on, etc. Since when did military flares gain the ability to
