If they pop up again, could you possibly head as close to as possible and get what you can, if they are planes, the closer you are, the easier it will
be to dispel.
I'm not honestly convinced their anything out of the ordinary, but the problem i'm getting with the planes debunk, is this....
Would the lights not fade in from a distance, rather than just coming on? (Unless they are landing lights that come on at a fixed distance, then that
would explain that)
The formation, or apparent formation could due to the angle of viewing, meaning that if it was planes, they would not look like they are moving for
long periods of time when headed directly at you, planes banking off to one direction can be sharp and fast or slow, depending on altitude and many
other factors, if taxiing, this could well be your explanation.
I was in bloomingdale last night and they were all strung out just like the guy who recorded the video from bloomingdale shows. Its very weird but
they're definitely not planes. I didn't have my camera cause I was with my girlfriend
As said, the only way to find out will be to wait till they come up again, get some mates and roadtrip it. if you can get walkie talkies and other
camera's, one can film from the same location as you were filming, the others can go to check it out and get closer footage. This is probably the
only way I can think of. Other than if you know anyone who has a telescope, this could be set to track on the lights, you can reduce the aperture of
the lens if it's a reflector to reduce the light coming in to help dim the object if it's too bright and causes diffraction spikes.
My issue is this, if it were UFO's and they have been visible there for many nights now ... then it must be nothing out of the ordinary as there has
been no significant reports and i'd definitely be expecting thousands more video's on youtube and lots of shouts on twitter, as we all know how news
Hey no problem. you will never, ever see planes go over the house I recorded those objects over, as that does not line up with any run way. Every
plane either travels the path of the one I recorded in that video, or they travel a path farther off to the left.
But yeah good idea. They're just really far away. Hopefully they'll show up when the weather gets warmer, then it'd be easier to take a trip out
to the lake or something. It's a clear night tonight but they aren't there
Unless I was there mate, as well you know, I cannot say what these are or are not, I can only state what the possibilities are and even though you say
they are not planes, I honestly couldn't discount it until I either know for sure via alternative footage with better resolution and more wide spread
hysteria (which i'm sure would happen if it really was anything unearthly) and plenty of news on twitter and other news sources.
If you can get something sorted to get up close then that would be worth the effort, to either prove you are right, or prove that sometimes, we just
get it wrong and ain't always got the answer
I watched that video. Why is it you cannot understand that the runways can be used in both directions, for takeoffs and landings? Depends on wind
From the place where you live, if they are landing to the East (Runway 9Left, 9R or 10) then that is what you see, as in that video. At night, you
would aim your camera to the West to see the landing lights out in the distance.
The other situation is what was happening last night....as I listened, and as that Flight Aware screen capture shows. Arrivals to the West. Lining
up and approaching from the East. Wasn't that the direction you were pointing the camera, last night? You keep saying you were looking towards
Michigan....Michigan is East of you. Lining up to land on Runway 27L, 27R or 28, that is where they will congregate. Lots of arrivals that come from
departure points farther East...slightly Northeast, slightly Southeast, etc....
Aeronautical charts. Use Flight Aware too....for the Instrument Arrivals procedures (STARS). You will see the routings that are routine, from
different directions, to feed traffic, and funnel and flow them to the final arrival course.
I think I may add the videos I caught last night, but they're done with my very poor quality kodak easyshare Z1012 IS and no tripod, also, I'm not a
photographer, this isn't one of my skills and usually freeze up trying to figure out how they work. I have not been out stargazing for the past
year, as meditation and other things are more the pearls in my life now, metaphysics, but still have had experiences. So, this is from our new
address, for the past week or just a little more, I've seen what is similar to what we saw often, only it didnt fly right over our roof at a low
altitude so I don't know.
But now, after seeing the plane in the same spot where that craft flew around for maybe 5 minutes last night, then disappeared when I went to get my
feet in warm boots and my son, then flew along the south east of the property a while later. And then the plane tonight. Note this is out back,
near the school behind our place, across the field.
This craft I've seen 3 times. The first was while driving, and I knew there was a ufo, don't ask me how, but excitement and I looked up. It looked
almost like a plane, not the saucer under the red light like before, but it was only a red light, it was very low above, and it was soundless, AND IT
WAS BARELY MOVING. I nearly ran into someone looking. I pulled over and then it slowly moved off.
Then I went home and didn't see it.
Another day I saw it.
Then last night with my very poor quality camera, that doesnt have night vision in video mode I caught it, and I am not camera friendly. This time no
wing span just this red light. Its only a red orb above the school region, nearby, on the video, I did think to finally zoom in and out a few times.
I should have said something so no sound would be evident, but I didn't think to. All you can hear is the camera zoom and the wind.
What I saw was a red lighted craft, soundlessly moving very slowly in the same area, but it was moving around. I had ran out with bare feet and was
nearly frost bitten so I ran into get my slip on boots on. The other night it had flown off slowly. This night with the camera I had not stayed out
the full time so missed its exit.
I then tried out the night vision, mode still shot. And was seeing if it worked in the back yard. It came back and flew along the property, low
plane height. Soundless. And I tried to get it into the view, on my camera, but couldn't so I was walking quickly around the trees it had
disappeared from view behind, and was switching the camera to video mode again. But it was no where in sight, it had vanished.
Tonight. In the same spot, roughly, (my plane comparison) I noticed a faint blue star. It got bigger. I thought what is that. Then it moved to the
side and turned around. I was using my logic and realizing it must be a plane that had flown straight in that one direction to get bigger, then
turned. You could hear it. It flew at an angle crossways near our property. It had wings!
Now, the one I saw as it was closer over the trees didnt have wingspan. Same one as before? Or a different one, though the behavior and sound was
identical? One that could change? One of ours, one of theirs? I can't say for sure, only what I feel and that there was a connection, so I felt if
it was a black op type craft that was soundless, there was a real one nearby. Also this looks like a red orb, but in reality I'm looking at something
behind the school, 3 times in the same area, the size of a small plane, flying around slowly.
The longer one.
The light you see is at the beginning is from the school, its lit up.
edit to add: I deleted the first short one, it really didn't turn out well at all.

To be fair WW, Apo has posted a video of incoming flights on one of the other threads ( I wish there was just the one, perhaps you can repost it here
too Apo?), and it doesn't look like the other videos he posted.
Now, I am undecided on this issue so far, what I want to understand WW, is if there is any reason why they would look different (the incoming planes
on the latest vid, and the lights from the originals).
Points I would like to make are:
1.The altitude looks all wrong on the originals compared to the other vid?
2. The lights in the original look more solid and stationary than the lights on the last vid?
3. Surely at an international airport, you'd be able to see similar lights as those shown in the original vids almost every night, why is this not
the case in the latest video?
Are there any logical reasons as to why this might/might not be? I am a complete layman when it comes to flights arriving at a destination, so any
further input would be most welcome.
In all honesty it's not really worth it for me to talk with him any more. His superiority complex and expectation bias make him blind to anything else
in the sky, and causes him to label it as "plane. case closed." Every time he sees "UFO" in a thread, I can guarantee he's already thinking "PLANE!!!"
before he clicks it. Then when he views it for a couple seconds, it's "YEP THATS A PLANE ALRIGHT."
Take a look at his post history and you'll understand what I mean.

I mean... If these were just planes as one as suggested... Well... Something just tells me that all these countless people would not just start
reporting these things out of the blue for nothing... Surely... If they were just planes... People would have been seeing these things for... Well...
as long as O'hare as been around...
I truly don't think it is a plane.... I mean... I would love for weedwhacker to explain how it is that these things are visible for HOURS on end... I
have seen the effect that is spoken about, in which a plane heading directly towards me or away from me, appears to not be moving at all and just a
floating light.... But as the plane gets closer or moves away, it becomes obvious that it is a plane... And it only lasts for a matter of minutes,
that I have ever heard of.... So.... if it were a plane... why is it visible in that same small area for hours on end?
I would love for some one to explain that... Because I truly want to understand exactly what it is we are seeing...
No, I don't think it is a plane... Or is there some way that one plane, can be visible from a single vantage point ( This mans window) for hours on

The only reply anyone wants for that is a 2 hour video. Something of which I can't provide. Otherwise they think I'm just bull#ting. I provided a 9
minute video, and thought that'd be enough...guess not
If it was a plane, why dont the lights do what the blue lights did in my siting of a plane tonight in the same area i had an anomlous one. Which is
start out very gradual and then grow brighter?
How long would they hang around there in that one area/spot? The turquoise blue lights, starting faint and then growing brighter, and the plane
turned around and flew over my property all in the space of just over a minute, roughly.
In contrast, to show that videos don't turn up what is really there, and can really be misleading. That orb in my video, was a plane sized red
covered craft, that was soundless, and its near the school, not that far away. The video is not a good indicator compared to the testimony, it only
gives some added back up.
