I read a more detailed version of this article in the
regional edition of a national newspaper today.
You won't understand since it's in Dutch, but I'll explain:
While driving home a family (mother, father, two kids) apparently noticed a strange light in the sky. They describe a "red, green and white flashing
object hovering, tumbling, going from left to right, up and down, land and take of...", so they claim. They considered approaching it while
stationary - although they didn't after all.
They watched it for about twenty minutes and made a poor video with a mobile phone.
'Urania Public Observatory' didn't receive any calls that night so they "believe the family is making this up". The family states they don't
really believe in ufos either, but they 'wonder whatever it was they've seen.
The ufo-subject isn't my favourite, but this one got my interest since I live only 5km from the alleged spot. Besides, the last time I saw our msm
bringing ufo-topics under attention was in the early nineties, when we had our famous 'belgian wave'.
The video is poor: too dark and bad quality, but the people do sound sincere in describing what they see (although I'm not sure because they're from
Holland - slightly different speech).
Anyway, it's all yours to judge. Enjoy.
Belgium seems to have always been a hot spot for UFO activity. I can't really discern much from the video. So I don't really know if it's a UFO or
not. UFO videos are never the best quality which is a shame.
When you go to the original link on youtube the title of the video is called: 'ufo landing langs ring antwerpen'. If a UFO would land THERE even in
the middle of the night there would be more reports about this. The ring around Antwerp is such a busy road even at night, there's no way that only
THIS particular family would be the only ones who've seen this. You can actually HEAR the busy traffic in the background. And when you listen to
the family on the video they are talking about the colours on the UFO: 'look, the light is turning red...Now the light is blinking... Now it's
truned off' That doesn't seem like an appropriate reaction to me. I'm also from belgium, and to me those people sound far to relaxed, they kind
of sound like 'acted surprised'.
I don't know, and maybe this is real, but I would like to think that if a ufo would be flying over the ring around Antwerp more people would notice
I think it has more to do with the accessibility of technology nowadays.
If you wanted to create a hoax in the past you had to have a camera (not alot of people could afford one back in the days), you had to have a computer
and you had to buy or obtain a photoshopprogram of some sort to manipulate your photo (in the past photoshopprograms used to be expensive and
complicated to use).
Nowadays everyone in the US, Europe and Asia owns a camera and a computer. Photoshopprograms can easily be downloaded and sometimes you even get a
free demo. Lots of kids and even adults have way to much time on their hands... So there you go.
Take a look at this website, and then decide for yourself how difficult it has become to judge if a picture is 100% authentic or photoshopped.
In the past (like 10 years ago) when I saw a video/picture of a UFO or ghost I used to think: 'wow, pretty cool and convincing.' Now I catch myself
thinking: this could easily be photoshopped or staged.
