Proving a HOAX requires reasoned and factual analysis and conclusion, not just debunking based on the most amusing explanation you can find.
Look at the thread I posted on the triangle "fleet: for an example.
Now all three of those explanations and more far feteched than the idea of UFOS, at least a UFO has a chance of looking like that, helicopters and
birds definately do not so why try debunk based on something completely wild and fantastic?
Come up with rational explanations and reasons, not just wild answers.
In terms of this thread I wholly agree with people saying bird or bugs are possible answers, thats a fair and reasonable point. But saying "its
obviously photoshopped: isnt reasonable. If its photoshopped its done very well and only someone who specialises in studying images could really tell
us that as theres no obvious signs of it.
If an image expert comes in with an analysis and shows its hoaxed thats perfect, good work by someone whos qualified and able to figure that out.
