Exactly, mOjOm. Plain 'ol radar. The infared I can dig, but the fact that they showed on traditional radar (likely tech from several years back) piques my interest.
i.e. Only some of them showed on the radar, only some of the time. Like I said, almost as if there was stealth tech being used, but maybe malfunctioning?
Hmmm...this is kinda 'out there', but consider this: in all the talk about the Philadephia Experiment, the idea was to remove the object visually by electrically making a monster magnetic field...problem was, they tried it on a boat, which was tragically placed in a large body of water. Technically, this could be doable in an aircraft configuration without such problems? Of course, we could fit the same tech they used to fill the whole boat in a suitcase by now...anyway, like I said, it's pretty 'out there'. Still...if you had such a functional device on an aircraft, along with conventional stealth tech, it would more or less match what was seen.
heelstone: I wouldn't bash Maussan because he charges for his lectures. Who funds UFO research? Nobody, thats who. The world runs on money and the only way to present your information to the world is to make some.
heelstone: You just raised another important point, letxa2000. Who else will bring foward this information? Certainly not the established scientific community. UFOs have been sensationalized to the point of ridicule long enough to make anybody talking about them look bad. Which is why regular scientists are scared to speak up on what information they get and why those that give us that info never had much to lose in the first place, like Maussan.
Springer: A conundrum to be sure... On the one hand we have the Mexican National, who KNOWS what's going on in his country telling us that the presenter of this "video" is a charleton and showman.
On the THIRD hand we have the ubiquitous response from the USA "mainstream" of "Ball Lightening" (THAT is getting TRITE)...
While the majority of coils are used for entertainment only, some researchers in the area of Ball Lightning frequently use high-powered Tesla Coils to generate the strange phenomenon of Ball Lightning. One application in particular has been in testing airplane fueselages for electrical resillience. Researcher use the coil to simulated a lightning bolt strike on an aircraft in flight.
dirtjockey: It's not the scientific community, it's the government who is not excited about alien intelligence. I'm sure that any scientist would love to be the one putting his thumbprint on proof of alien intelligence. The problem is that there is NO government individual or agency who is prepared to admit to the free world that there are beings from other planets who have the ability to enter our airspace, abduct our civilians, and pretty much do whatever the hell else they want to do. Why not? Because they will admit that they have absolutely NO CONTROL of the situation. How quickly would marshal law be instituted? There is no value in that admission whatsoever, so why would they allow it?

Ball lightning is a rare atmospheric condition in which lightning has no place to "ground." Thus, it remains in a self-contained sphere.
