A San Diego-based UFO researcher named Ed Grimsley captured what one writer called "multiple unidentified flying objects" that were "saucer-shaped [and] appeared to hover in the sky and change direction before moving out of sight."
The video was taken April 30 with Grimsley's organization, Skywatch.

The only thing that confuses me is how the brightest ufo stays in the exact same place on the sceen.
"Night-vision optics trade low resolution for high sensitivity, and bright objects spill out into a circle of light that in no way reflects their actual angular size. So what looks like a large object may well just be a point of light," Sheaffer said. "Many of the objects they're seeing are birds or bats, or faint satellites in earth orbit. There's nothing in the sky that a night vision device can see that a person can't see with 10 x 50 binoculars — and with much better detail. So their belief that they're seeing entire fleets of UFOs up in the sky simply means that they don't understand how these devices work, and what they're seeing."

Seems like MSNBC blatently downplayed that piece of footage... But it looks very legit. Good night vision quality, and some interesting interactions.

No idea what it is, but I am sure it is NOT Chinese lanterns, satellites or stars, some of the shooting ones that zip across the screen could be meteors but the rest are def UFO in that they are unidentified flying objects, what are they?

And I wouldn't discount the footage just because the guy sells night vision goggles; I would call it a product demonstration. Wish I could afford a pair.
Any idea where the video was taken?
Ed Grimsley's San Diego Skywatch does it again. We captured several ufos on April 30 2011. Here's two flying by each other, I was only able to capture the last 1/3 of them flying through the sky. They were saucer shaped and we'll be remastering a video with enhanced imagery to bring out some of the details. If anyone had any comments, suggestions on how to do this better, please let us know. Our next investment is a DVR system so we don't have to film the TV. Any DVR suggestions?

I want to see the galactica, however, I understand I am probably just viewing some birds.
Since it could be birds, then it should be taken to be just birds unless there is something compelling to show differently.
If you are going to state that they cannot be birds or bats due to whatever..please list your credentials to show your expertise in the area...I can make up my own crap as to why it can or can't be something based on my desire for it to be so moreso than actual working knowledge of the area.
