No not produce their own light, but I think someone else mentioned that light reflected on from the ground on the feathers of the bird. It would appear that bird feathers do contain some type of oily residue.

The video is not from Iraq. Whoever posted it on youtube is lying. This was all filmed by this youtube member in Fremont, California.

birds? I guess some folks are just complete idiots!
regardless of where this video is from, iraq or fremont it's great! those last couple of craft looked definitely like military triangles.

Some of the responses on here prove to me that some people just want to believe anything that fits with THEIR desired paradigm.. I would love to believe that extra-terrestrial life exists and that we are being visited.

I would love to encounter a video on here that proved it to me. That's why I look at most of them! Most times I look at them, I am disappointed. And this time, yes I was disappointed...

It is birds - flocks of birds viewed in nightvision reflect light. I have seen this. The rest in the video is also terrestrial.

Thanks for posting the video, OP - we will all check it out for authenticity - but it isn't proof this time.

Military, probably. Awfully odd lighting arrangement for a single aircraft though. I think it's a group of aircraft flying in close formation. It's hard to be sure but I'm pretty sure there is a change in configuration. Training perhaps. There is an aerial refueling unit in the area.

Well that last part was interesting anyway. After watching that part several times... I feel more perplexed than I was to start : /

Nightvision goggles enhance existing light, they are not thermal goggles. Nightvision doesn't work in a room with no light source whatsoever, for example.

Birds do not emanate light, nor do they glow. They would appear to "glow" if they were spotlighted with a light of some kind, but it would be visible. Also, infrared light would make them appear to "glow", if they were to keep the "birds" highlighted.. but an infrared beam can be seen in its entirety, from the ground up.

The so-called "birds" are glowing brighter than the stars in the sky. That doesn't happen.. sorry.

I've spent over 2 years in Iraq and have looked through many kinds of nightvision for many, many night hours. Live beings that do not emanate a light source do not "magically glow". You see things when the person in-question actually appears darker or lighter (depending on contrast) of the background they are silhouetting. You cannot see a bird that silhouettes a black night sky.

You would only see them if you were looking Very close because they would be like a dark grey on a black background.

Birds are not brighter than stars.

Maybe it was a flock of republicans trying to get away because they saw a big scary socialist i their closet?

Nice vid .. especially the end craft/formation ..
was moving at terrific speeds

is a bit dodgey also that there is confusion as to where it was shot ... (usa)

all in all will need more to lose sleep at night

At the beginning I would have agreed with the bird theory, but the last formation moves far too fast to be any flock of birds.

And the way it moves, that's a very tight formation. I've never seen any birds move like that in formation before.

The bird explanation doesn't fly with me I'm afraid.

You know I do not believe in ufos, however this got my attention, not in thinking it's aliens but more of what kind of aircraft am I looking at here

Not to be picky but the term UFO doesn't necessarily mean alien, instead it means anything flying in the air that is unidentified.

Oh bugger it.Simply 'cause i feel slightly peeved that i'll never get that 4m55secs. back& at the risk of a good ol' flaming.Im gonna say my first thought of what i was looking at for the first couple of mins. at least was a big team of formation skydivers??
Dont hate.100% open mind when i pressed play & thats just bam shot into my mind within 5secs.

I'm still looking for something as good as the old Billy Meier pics.

Clear, daytime shots. They leave all these nighttime photos in the dust.

You'd think with all the reported UFO activity someone could manage to take some nice clear photos of these things.

It would really move things forward. Fuzzy footage, day or night, is so difficult to interpret.

That said, I did watch this video and it doesn't look like birds to me. No flapping wings and I think they are going too fast. But this is one of a zillion examples of something that is interesting but is bad science. Where's the data on how this video was recorded? Exact time? Location? How can this ever be correlated with other sightings without those basic facts? Whoever took it should also give an estimate of the distance of the objects and their speed and direction. Was there any noise? Birds usually make noise, so do most jets. UFO's on the other hand are known for being silent except maybe for a hum.

G'day Mr_XIM

This video has already been the subject of a very long thread.

I'll see if I can find it for you.

I clearly recall the video was filmed in the USA by a high-profile fellow who is posting many such videos on the internet.

OK.....I found it....

Here's the thread as posted by Zorgon:

the first shot of objects are possible geese. However the speed at which these "geese" break away make me question that possibility... The last triangular object is a deal closer for me... Speed is very high and the lights are obviously part of the same object.. no way that was "geese"

posted on Aug, 24 2009 @ 09:51 AM
very interesting footage, i dont think they were geese at the beginning, i would say military jets in formation, just because of the brightness and speed, the last object is definatley not geese, if it were they must be on amphetemines (spelling). Could it be a new spy plane perhaps?


posted on Aug, 24 2009 @ 10:06 AM
what makes it more interesting is that this was reportedly not shot in iraq.. so the possibility of the last object being military aircraft is low.

reply to post by SyphonX we all know birds do NOT EMANATE LIGHT. Thanks...hadn't figured that one out...

If they are white enough - they can REFLECT it.

Get yourself some night vision goggles and check it will see birds and bats reflecting light!

Aaahhh... No, you won't.

Like he said, the way NV gogles and IR cameras work are very different.

Altough some NV gogles use IR to enhance light and dark areas, not all NV use that.

IR cameras project IR light to the dark and captures it (that's why you see the peoples eyes glowing, reflection) like light.

NV gogles enhance the light that is already there, they don't project IR. You know why? Because if you are a soldier (not saying this person is one) a projection of IR would give away your position, since it can be detected by IR cameras far away.

What he said is, in fact, correct. If this camera used some type of NV gogles, if the objects were birds, it wouldn't reflect the IR light projected from the camera (that's what happens with those cases of bats and birds).

If this isn't a camera/gogles with IR projection, then the birds would react like any other object.

Like I said I believe in facts and proof, and I live in the real world. I do not believe this or any video, picture I have "ever" seen his of some alien space craft, I merely was asking what kind of military jet is triangle in shape, top secret?, or what!
