If youve ever watched iraq/afghan combat vids, the while light looks similar to the type of flare infantry will request planes to drop overhead to brighten up an area at night (likely when they're taking contact). Only one is usually dropped, it falls slow and burns for a while... and it's really bright.
The red lights, I have no idea. Though they certainly weren't behaving like airplanes.
Edit: i just watched the original video instead of the news one.. they dont look like those flares anymore, as the ones i was referring to dont flicker like that. it could just be some crafty kids using RC toys with fireworks and some release on it i really dont knowedit on 31-1-2011 by MurrayTORONTO because: (no reason given)

I spent part of my childhood near American Fork in another small town area. We saw military aircraft over that direction constantly between Hill Air Force Base flying over that way and Dougway. I had a Cousin at Dougway and an Uncle at Hill.
I wonder, could those be Drones testing Countermeasures to evade missiles? Just a thought? You know to evade heat seeking SAM's.
Anyway, thanks for the post and it's nice to see a genuine UFO video that is not a childish prank. Flag for that. We see so few anymore even worth looking at.
I'd think military though. It's hardly odd they would be in that area. Of course it's been over 40 years since I lived in that area. I assume that is still an area used by the military and the National Guard. Great Rock Hunting area too by the way. Used to see those silver weather balloons quite often in that area also as a kid.
Where I saw a UFO up close when I was young was about 12 miles from there. This is a link to the thread where I relate that and other things. It's impossible to know with things if they are military or Alien in origin, but considering the area that was seen in, likely it has a very earthly explanation and the military is being mute. Who knows?

Has any one given any thought to some off these sightings being drug drops. I had a buddy that worked for the border patrol near padres island Texas and he told me some stories on how smugglers would try some really far out things to get drugs across..from homemade subs and scuba to plane drops. So I was just thinking could some of these sightings in Az Nm Texas could they be hi-tec cartel drug drops. Who know using hot air ballons.
Does anyone know if a hot air ballon would come up on a radar the one D.O.D would use to watch the borders?
Just curious if anyone has any insight.

Completely. I just saw the side by side video, and all I have to say is I am ready. I've been ready. Last night I experienced something really weird.
I was sitting on my couch no drugs or beer in my system, scouts honor. When I let out a yawn, while yawning I was about to rub My eyes (eyes closed)
when I saw a dark sphere hurling at me. I know it sounds stupid but at that moment I flinched back cuz I felt something was really gonna hit me! It
was strange I totally started laughing and jumped up to go tell everyone in the house. My mom is an avid alien lover(dads a citizen) so she says " ah
the aliens are here" in the most Hispanic voice u can imagine. Any thoughts on that?
