I have to agree with you on both cases. The geese in the first one could have been an etreme distance from that ash cloud, but because of the enormity
of the cloud, the birds appear closer to it than to the photgrapher.
On the second video, I will call bats because I had this *exact* thing happen to me. The most telling thing is the apparent light pollution in the
video. The second factor is the awkward flight patterns, it is a bat catching bugs.
When this happened to me, I was at a job site at night, and there was a fair amount of light pollution in the area, including some rather large
billboards with upward facing lights.
Well, we all know what lights at night attract, right?
Anyway, I was outside doing some stargazing, and even had a few sattellites I knew flight paths and times for, and upon looking over towards a rather
close and crowded horizon, I see objects like the second video.
Lots of them. 7 or 8, all flying erratically, appearing to do insane maneuvers. They appeared to me to be spherical and silver, and when I told my
husband about it on the phone, I exclaimed, "It looks almost like they are playing together!"
He promptly shows up with the video camera that I had asked him to bring, and upon zooming in, it was suddenly and embarrassingly obvious, they were
It was the upward pointing lights on the billboard reflecting of them, and that coupled with the distance, the crowding of the horizon, all of it, it
played perectly into the UFO scenario.
I have often thought a video like that would have been extremely convincing, without the zoom, of course. Good thing I am not a hoaxer!
Had I not had that camera, and know what I know, I can say for a fact that I would have been telling this story as a UFO story, and not a bat story.
And I say again, excellent post, excellent points!
