That is so obviously a flashlight though. The movements of the object at the end.. The fact that there are no noises from outside.. The fact that the
kids voice is actually echoing.
Why anyone would claim this to be real I have no idea. The fakery is pretty obvious...
But this video is also pretty inconsistent with alot of other mind-blowing videos out there which can be proven with close analysis that they don't
involve anything reflected or CGI of any kind. Even some of the best CGI examples of UFO's out there are pretty obvious hoaxes. As technology and
software becomes better, it might become harder later on to separate real from fake. But even right now with today's fast computers and amazing
software.. You can still generally tell the difference. Also, people doing the CGI will usually make mistakes that become evident in the end-result
Computers explain some of the videos floating around out there. They don't even begin to explain some of the better-documented UFO cases out there.
Especially those reported and witnessed by multiple people, pilots, military personnel, etc.. that have no possible earthly explanation. There are
many examples. There is also the physical evidence to consider (the little that does exist), the abduction phenomenon, and the amazing videos out
there that people have nothing to gain from. Videos taken by people who are actually willing to come forward instead of remaining some anonymous
ghost because they realize what they saw is what they saw and they have nothing to lose by openly sharing their experiences with the world. Anything
involving anonymous individuals unwilling to come forward is always pretty suspect IMO.
UFO cases involving pilots are usually some of the best-documented cases out there because they sometimes involve air traffic control picking up the
unknown radar signatures, evidence in the form of the conversations between the pilots and ATC, evidence in the form of witness testimony of anyone
on-board that also witnessed the object, pilots of other aircraft that might have seen the thing (there are a few great examples of this), and pilots
are also unlikely to have anything to gain from coming forward about seeing UFO's.. They have alot to lose in fact. And there have been many pilots
grounded and/or fired by their employers for even publicly mentioning their UFO sightings. There have also been a few NASA astronauts and employees
come forward claiming that UFO's are real. And there are actually official NASA radio communications involving mention of words like "UFO" and
"Alien spacecraft". Not to mention objects instantly appearing and disappearing as captured by ultraviolet cameras.
All I'm saying.. There is alot more to the UFO phenomenon than a bunch of idiots making lame hoaxes.
There is alot of pretty compelling, pretty mind-blowing evidence out there. And alot of the most interesting evidence is not even documented in photo
or video form. People just, for some reason, consciously require seeing these photos and videos on the internet to come to either come to some kind
of conclusion or to substantiate their already-existing biases or beliefs. And alot of times that is probably the dumbest thing you can do.
Especially with all the charlatans, hoaxes, and all the people on youtube saying what is real and what isn't when most of them have no idea in the
IMO, If someone is going to go online looking for "evidence" of UFO's, what they're really likely to do is reinforce their already-existing
beliefs and biases.
