A STARGAZER struck lucky when he was filming the weekend's 'supermoon' by capturing video footage of mysterious unidentified flying objects.
John Hancock armed himself with his trusty camcorder to record Saturday's giant moon which was the closest it has been to the Earth for 20 years.
He was left speechless when three bright lights suddenly appeared in the sky.
Last night 19th March 2011 was the night of the Super Moon and I was at the end of my garden filming the event. It was about 11pm and freezing cold but it was so light outside and really quite beautiful, looking across the fields and listening to the night wildlife. It was a clear night and there was no wind at all. The video shows the moon filmed through trees. I had my back to the fields at this point, then when I turned to look out over the fields right in front of me was three huge red lights moving across the sky in total silence. I was filming in infa-red at the time and this was when the lights were at their brightest. I switched to normal mode and the lights began to vanish one by one in a clear, cloudless sky.
To be honest this video does'nt do justice to the intensity of the lights when I first saw them, they were huge and red in colour flying in formation coming out from the West. At the time I wanted to watch them, film them, look at them through binoculars, take pictures of them, all at once. At least I captured them on film and you get an idea of what I saw, this upload is darker than it appears on my TV. At the end of the video I filmed a plane coming over so you can see that what I filmed moments before was no aircraft. I am a paranormal researcher, ghosts, big cat sightings, ufos, etc, so this for me was just fantastic.

Hm, could be Chinese lanterns with flashing lights? You can see some flashing lights at the end of the video...

So you write a thread about plonking a vid and then you do this?
How is anyone meant to make any comment on this as you have already basically said you think that they are chinese lanterns?
I like your style start a thread and debunk it all in one go.
By your theory of plonking, you've just "plonked" a useless You tube vid on here.
May I ask do you think these are chinese lanterns? simple answer yes or no, please.
If you did why start a thread about dud vids and then put one up of your own?

For example, in your title, you mention chinese lanterns? notice the question mark? well that means you aren't sure, and if you're not sure, then it's safe to say that they are indeed UFO's (Unidentifiedflying object) why can't you just say as much Isaac?

That may be the constellation of Orion you are referring to, precisely Orion's belt. Although the stars that make up the rest of that constellation are pretty bright too, and you can't see those.

My opinion is that anyone who posts about UFO's regularly should be forced - at gun-point if necessary - to watch some Chinese lanterns being released. They should film how they behave and look and then be made to compare the footage to many of the videos posted on ATS.
There have been some unbelievable 'discussions' on here that should have lasted 3 posts at most. I have identified lanterns then been dismissed as some kind of professional debunker several times. The person dismissing had clearly no idea I was genuinely correct. One trip out to a field with a video camera would solve that problem.
