I was happy with the reception that people over the world gave this footage and the instant fame of the photographer. However, it occured to me that there could have been a totally different reaction if those guys were actually ufo hunters. I expect there would have been more skeptism.
I have shot hundreds of these bright lights that fly in a perfect straight line. They normally fly very high above the clouds and the speed is astounding. They can cross the sky in just one second and you will not see them with the naked eye.
Although they cannot be identified, I often wonder if they are actually objects (as in hardware). What if they were pure light ? As for the flying, are they really doing that. They seem to be shooting across the sky rather than flying.

Pure light? As far as I am aware, light always has some kind of material source. So although it may appear only light, I'm quite sure it should have some physical thing there to produce the light. If you're referring to your photographs, I would really like to see them!
And just my quick opinion on the most common type of UFO, I always imaged it was the saucer type.
Again, thanks for the thread!

These kinds of phenomena might be some kind of plasma. Most of the universe is supposed to be made up of plasma, therein the sun and most other stars. Plasma are influenced heavily by electromagnetic fields, and this might apply here. (information gathered from wikipedia, this is not my personal view).
Actually, if you are aware of a Norwegian place called Hessdalen - if not you can search up a very interesting documentary on this at youtube - there is a very similar phenomena. A lot of different acitivity regarding these kinds of lights has been observed, as well as different craft like cigar shaped objects hovering across the valley. When telling about Hessdalen, the phenomena you talk about might be explained by whats happening in the Norwegian valley. I don't say that this phenomenon exclude the presence of UFOs, but it might correspond.
Edit: I'm visiting Hessdalen next week, I'll keep you posted if I catch anything interesting on camera or video.

By the way, Hessdalen has had an enormous international interest since at least the early 1980's and researchers now believe that this phenomena are the same thing that happens within stars in nuclear fusion.
I believe by researching Hessdalen many answers to questions regarding these kinds of sightings may be answered. But by no means will this answer all UFO sightings, there is some very intruiging things happening that our current understanding of physics won't answer.
PS: Be advised that my information may be incorrect, and I advise you to research this yourself.

I concur I saw that video and I thought the same same thing which is ,it is unidentifiable!
So I guess in my own personal evaluation of such things I think of UFO as a craft created by and controlled and or piloted by a being from another world
and I think of things like what is on the video as 'atmospheric phenomena'
