Looks to me like planes coming in for a hazardous landing while deploying night time skydivers with flares and lanterns...J\K. Good post man.

Will there ever come a day when we can all agree that a sighting(s) is just unexplainable? Although I believe we've seen many already, I give you yet, another one!

Without even touching the video you supplied, I can 100% guarantee that these ufos are just commercial airplanes.

Think... Numerous flying objects "over" an airport? What could they be? American Airlines, TWA, etc...

"Blinking" lights? (The landing lights...not to be confused with strobes). Usually it is just a feature on some airplanes. Came up in a video (here in this very forum) some months ago, of an airplane in Australia, mistaken for something "otherworldly" because of its landing light pulsing pattern. Was a business jet, never caught what make.

There are various manufacturers of biz jets that offer that feature....and some Boeing 737s too. afaik the only U.S. operator of any 737s with that installed is Southwest Airlines. Ours definitely didn't have the option.

BTW....maybe a good point to clear up "landing lights". They are turned on, as a general practice, for all operations below 18,000 feet. To increase visibility for other pilots...and, theoretically, to scare off birds. The pulsing lights were designed for both those reasons...in theory, the birds would be more frightened. Not sure if they ever had a study or not on that... the birds wouldn't say.


Along with the landing lights, we like to turn on everything else, too...some mounted on the sides, illuminating the wings (to inspect for ice) and of course, the "logo lights" (when you have them) for the vertical fin. In the clouds, though...usually turn those off (strobes too) as too distracting, when they reflect back.

Finally, there are the taxi lights, usually mounted on the nose landing gear strut. Other lights there too, some airplanes. Of course, the gear is lowered late in the approach....no later than one thousand feet above touchdown, as a good operationg rule. SO, no lights from them until then.

Personally, I used the taxi light as my reminder of a landing clearance.....you'd be surprised how easy it is, since it's so routine, to wonder if the Tower has issued that clearance...and sometimes they wait, for reasons....until just about the last minute....so, it's a memory jog, out of habit. Little tricks we all use ....some have other pet methods.

I'd go with fixed lights before planes because they are not moving..
I also don't see any strobe landing lights...

If anyone doubts just how busy O'Hare is and how the aircraft are managed then listen to the live Air Traffic Control.
Also follow on the Flight Aware link.

It really is so easy to be fooled by aviation at night.

Ahh I should have been a little more technical when I said that!
I mean when they have the strobe effect or like a locomotive light pulsing left, right, left, right, etc. I always wondered if that meant anything, or was it just their version of having the landing lights on their gear. I do know they have landing lights on when they are about 500ft off the ground opening up the gear. heck I've had my room lit up by one of those suckers just as they were opening up the landing gear,
That was fun!


@ Backinblack

At 1:58 and 4:58 in the video you see a light blinking on and off. That is what I was asking WW about. And they are not stationary, only appear to be. And believe me, if there really were lights stationary right now, over O'Hare, I'd be the first to know and first to see. Driving around that night, I didnt see anything at all out of the ordinary.

First, this post is NOT to claim that the vid from the OP is an airport scene, but rather a shared related revelation I experienced with the whole airplane lined up scenario. So for education purposes and what it's worth check these.
The first vid, Horn Lake UFO, had me going, then a few weeks later, that fella came out to the same location and explained how a fleet of Fed Ex planes were responsible for the formations.
Original

Explained - The planes show up at 3 minute mark


To the OP's vid, if the claim is "motionless" lights for 2 and a half hours, even a plane 40 miles away would not take that long to descend and land. There would be some observable movement during 2+ hours if it was planes. Like the vid I presented, you can see slow but steady motion of the planes.
Now if the vid ran fixed for even 20 minutes, we'd have a better idea me thinks.
So I don't know on this one, and the timeframe of how long the lights remained would be the only way I could tell, personally.
Thumbs up though Human-Alien for continued thought provoking threads


Peace,

Have you ever flown into O'Hare in the day time? The planes fly in between buildings while landing and they are not big buildings. You will see them about 100 feet away it seems past the wings as your only five or six stories up from landing. I live north of Tampa and I see them do this same thing on occasion as they are coming in to land. Sometimes they will be 10 deep and all evenly spaced.

See....this si where in the frenzy, lots of claims and "beliefs" were expressed, and it got muddled:


To the OP's vid, if the claim is "motionless" lights for 2 and a half hours...


The maker of the video in OP never mentioned 2 1/2 hours. An ATS member, and Chicago resident did. The member, though, mentioned a camera (phone, I presume?) that only takes four minutes' worth of video. Hardly enough to see the movement of the airplanes. It was hearsay from the member of the 2 1/2 hours....and I suggest it was simply that the lights were not observed continuously for that time, but glanced up again and again....they were different airplanes, each time. Moving very slowly, due to relative distance.


Back to OP video....there, our problem is the several places where the video stopped, and started again...and the constant hand-held motion.

I note, if you will look again, at the very start....lower left side of screen are three ground-based lights, in a triangle. Using those as a reference, look at one of the airplane lights in relative position. The camera takes a scene break, and then pans and moves all around....but, eventually you will see those three ground-based lights again. Note, then, the relative position of an airborne light. You will see it is different. In fact, it is another airplane, one behind the first....because the first one has continued on eastbound, and out of view of the camera.

Watch carefully....takes longer to describe and explain than to actually see what I mean......

Well, you have to remember that Phage is the one who comes up with all of those debunking ideas. Not saying he's right, or wrong, but it's odd how he seems to have an explanation for everything.

Ah well, it's on UFO friends for making it so easy for the NASA employee(speaking of which, where he is? I guess he must be contented that the UFOs decided not to show up in 2010, and will probably come back in 2012).

I haven't read this whole thread, but after watching the video, it looks like planes lined up in landing patterns at a major airport. Things to note is the different altitudes of each plane. The red strobe lights also give these "objects" away as terrestrial.

Doesn't anyone think that if these planes were real UFO's from somewhere else and being that close to the ground, that alot more people would be filming these alot closer and would be all over the news?

Come on, people. Simple common sense will debunk most of these "UFO" videos every time. Then the ones that are left undebunked can be further studied.

Eight pages of text to talk about planes lined up in landing patterns at night. Wow.

Weed is correct. I've been an air traffic controller for 23 years in control towers. Airplanes on final approach further away appear low when at the radar pattern altitude. As they get closer they appear to climb then decend again to the runway, even though they never change altitude. At the busier airports they line them up twenty or so miles out. What is in the video is quite a common effect in perspective.

Those look like planes on final to me. If they were landing on parallel runways that would account for the side by side lights.

Yes, _BoneZ_.....I mentioned this a ways back........

One answer I got, to "protect" the UFO meme? It was too cold that night!! Seriously. City of many millions, at 20:00 in the evening....

That's because there is an explanation for most of these "UFO" videos that keep being posted all over the net. But the problem is that there are too many people that want to believe so badly, that they're blinded by their own emotions and unwillingness to consider other alternatives.

I want to believe just as much or more than any of you, but I'm not blinded by emotion when it comes to watching these UFO videos.

The very first thing in watching these videos is to rule out any and all terrestrial possibilities. Whatever remains is worth studying. The slightest similarity to a terrestrial craft, such as a red strobe light, means that what you're looking at is likely, and more than probably, a terrestrial craft.

Great find - it will take some knocking - my only question was - is there a montain in the background I don't know - could the lights have been standard lights that might have been on a road in the distance going up the mountain - probably not.
