Parsimony? What does parsimony have to do with it?
I can post hundreds of links to stories about "ghostly Indian braves." If you need footage of insectovores feeding at night, I'm afraid I'll have to ask you to provide verified footage of ET craft that cannot also be explained by the "ghostly Indian braves" hypothesis.

You see, I don't like to explain things by using other unknown things, like saying "that thing that nobody knows what it is must be from some other planet, piloted by an unknown species and using an unknown technology". That doesn't explain a thing, it just "paints" the ignorance with something that is not real knowledge, just "make believe" knowledge.

It's very cute that the skeptics here are now experts on the flight patterns of bats!
Talk about batty!

Sorry to say, but these ARE bats...
The size to speed ratio is perfectly identical to bats. Even if you don't know the exact size, or exact speed, you can still see the size/speed ratio in the video.
Mentally, I can estimate the hight of the bat by acknowledging the average size of a bat in that area, and then estimating how high the bat would have to be to look similar in size as the video (compared to the size of the stars). The speed at which the objects move against the stars is about right for being a bat. The size/speed ratio is identical to that of bats.
If I wasn't busy, or not impressed by this video, I would do the actual calculations on this forum... but... yeah...
Here is a video of a group of bats in the day:
I can easily see that if these bats were a bit higher and filmed at night with a night vision camera you would get about the same size/speed ratio as the OP's video.
Also the erratic flight path matches... also, the video shows some bats flying in nearly straight lines with slight curves like in the OP's video.
It would be really cool if these were aircraft, but they aren't.
