Hello ATS. Found this video when searching the interweb a couple of days ago. Did a quick search and was not able to find this video here at ATS.

I particularly like the part, where the cluster of lights swerve into each other and then break away. Definitely not the usual helicopter formation - perhaps they were drunk and joy riding over Mexico.

What do you think - Motorized glow in the dark balloons?. Because they don't behave like the usual balloons. And for a helicopter, they seem to be making no sound at all.



P.S: Whoever whistles the X- files tune halfway through the video made me laugh out loud.

They seem like they've seen these many times before and aren't that surprised by these lights.
Definitely not Chinese lanterns, swamp gas, or weather balloons. I haven't seen any like this before, as in the speed the lights are traveling. Interesting, something new for the debunkers to debunk with a "possible" explanation that kills this thread.

First thought is that it looks like Chinese lanterns. Could be wrong though. Are there any videos from other angles that may show it clearer?

Thanks for sharing.

They *COULD* be be chinese lanterns but they are moving rather quickly... the clouds look like they are moving in the same direction ( hard to tell ) but obviously not as quickly .. the clouds are also much higher so the lanterns could be caught in an air current..

It's hard to say what it is.. it's odd that one of them was moving quicker than the others..

It's unidentified, it's flying, and it's an object.. so we definitely have a UFO situation here.. probably something terrestrial and mundane however.

Jesus, you don't know what it is but can speculate, but those of us inclined to look at what it could be a rule them out are killing the thread? Get over it. Seriously, if you aren't here to find the truth, wtf are you here for?

Based on what other than your opinion? I love that, based on absolutely nothing, like usual, it's definitely not what it clearly appears to be, it has to be aliens.

What do I see? Chinese lanterns or possibly helium balloons with LEDs or glow sticks in them. Watch them closely as they move from right to left. I see something following natural wind currents, doesn't look like an intelligently controlled object to me.

could easily be chines lanterns but it's quite hard to tell from the youtube encoding, leaving us with vague bright round lights.

Swamp gas? Defiantly not as this is shot in a town, and swap gas ignites and disappears almost instantly, usually very close to the ground.

ditto, the way they simply follow the air currents makes me thing something more terrestrial. But I'm just a giant douchebag disinfo debunker.

Dude, I've watched countless threads with GOOD UFO footage get lost in the crowd of dopey topics like "what would you say to aliens if they landed?" Really? That kind of thread stays active for years, but good footage gets debunked by a guess, theory, or possible explanation of that they could be, and then the lazy crowd chimes in with "good job, I knew it was fake!" and the threads just end there.

This video can't be 100% explained off by natural everyday sky phenomena, but someone will attempt it and not be wrong necessarily, but not necessarily be correct either. This has to end with a "???" unless more footage of the same event appears to help the evidence dissection process.

They do look like lanterns mate. Sorry.

Why do you think they aren't? They aren't surprised as they know what they are.

If they were lanterns, then they are damn well made lanterns to be able to stay lit and "not flicker" really in high winds. Also I don't really hear high winds in the microphone of the camera like you normally would in videos with lots of wind.

Those things are bookin' across the sky, some change speeds and directions quickly without a flicker to the supposed lantern fire.

I'm just saying it's unusual behavior for lanterns in high winds.

Absolutely Jibby.

That is why I like to say "It looks cool".

Because I have done MUCH research in the field of UFOs.

Enough to know that considering the U.S military budget - it is plausible we have some very impressive space/aircrafts. And most likely love testing them out on the poor folk in Mexico.

In the 1960's the U.S government's best computers had the capability of running as well as a 1990's computer.

That's a 30 year gap of technology.
So I ask,

What will crafts look like in 2040?

Man-made or extraterrestrial, I think the video is "cool".


P.S: If you think these are chinese lanterns, I urge you to do some personal research on them. Because whatever are flying in this video, do not resemble a flying lantern any more than they do hot air balloons. Much more similar to helicopters - which would still be very arguable.

Lol I agree 100%. Lets remember that YOU are the only one telling us what it definitely ISN'T. No video like this can ever be explained 100% because:

a> we weren't there
b> youtube encodes the crap out of videos losing tons of data
c> it's the only available video/angle of the event I can find so far.

the fact remains, if you intend to suggest it's extraterrestrial then you have to start by ruling out the natural things it could be.

Swamp gas ? Nope, as I explained above, it's never swamp gas.
birds? On fire maybe, but no flapping motion
Chinese lanterns, possibly, they to appear to be light, self illuminated objects, floating on air currents.
Balloons with glowsticks or leds, could be, just as logical as Chinese lanterns.

Now see how I said, could be, looks like, maybe? That's a far cry from "Definitely not"

I get your point on the small group bent on disruption, but there are plenty of us that don't immediately jump to extraterrestrials, that honestly WISH they were. Like me.




P.S: If you think these are chinese lanterns, I urge you to do some personal research on them.


I've launched plenty of them myself. you get absolutely no detail from the video as it's over encoded, all you get is round orbs producing their own light. I suggest you watch the video again and explain to all of us why they can't possibly be chinese lanterns, they very well could be, it's just impossible to tell from this video.

ruling things out because you don't like them is not the path to the truth. fox Mulder would roll in his grave, if he were dead.

Now we are getting somewhere. The telltale flicker of the candle that actually produces the heat for lift, it's complete absent. Without knowing the exactly camera and settings used, we can't actually say they aren't flickering, they don't appear to be but that could be related to the camera used and frame rate recorded.

I'd suggest, if you guys haven't, check out some episodes of "fact or faked" yes, it's a pretty weak show, i know, but they did experiments with helium balloons with LEDS inside them, which could easily be glow sticks instead.

This would provide exactly what I'm seeing. Objects that appear to be round, floating on air currents from right to left.

I can't say what it is, or what it isn't, but I'm not willing to rule out balloons, or some type of Chinese lantern with a better burning candle.

Anyways, the video is kewl, and the x-files theme seals it for me.

Yes! I think people like to assume everyone who says it's not this or that must believe it's "alien spaceships"... I do not think this is. I've seen TR-3Bs up close and personal and know those particular craft are 100% for real and I'm guessing they are 100% our toys. TR-3Bs can stop on a dime and move extremely fast. We as humans have sick technology that will remain underground until we take it from the elite. They won't share anything with us that could free us from gas, electric, heat, and taxes.

I have done some research on lanterns. They don't change directions they stay with the direction of the wind if you ask me. I can't tell whether they are flickering as the footage is low quality.

I'm not certain they are lanterns but it looks that way. I'm not out to just dismiss all UFO footage but this is not much cop. It's so obvious the people filming it know what they are.

I would have said lanterns but; they're moving at such different speeds. If they were a long way apart then obviously the speeds would seem different, but the brightness seems very similar.

I've let off loads of lanterns before for loy kratong festival and have seen thousands of these things. Lanterns is a no goer. Must be something else. Surely?

If you watch the video directly on the youtube, the uploader claims this came from his camera. The X-files whistling also suggests that it is something "trippy" and not something they see on every bead-trading holiday.

They make the argument in the youtube comments that this is not a balloon. But even with my google translator, it's unclear what they are saying. Wish I took up Spanish more in school, because I genuinely would like to know what is taking place in that comment section.

Looking at the video over and over, I feel that the video becomes interesting when one watches the cluster of "orbs" move forward and to the side. As if one were speeding up, and the two beside it moved out of its way.

Not much information provided. I don't think it's lanterns.

It could very well be helicopters. Dubbing the soundtrack is not terribly difficult.

Speaking strictly as a layperson who has NOT done extensive UFO research, it looks to me like a combination of different types of objects. The ones in the beginning look singular but the one(s) that enter around 11 secs (multi-clustered) seems to be one large object containing many lights that is being escorted by one or more singular objects (hence the change in directions). Again, just an unbiased (and perhaps untainted) opinion from a person who knows nothing about swamp gas or chinese lanterns and who has only ever seen one UFO (or set of UFO's) in her life. Take it for what it's worth but it's a cool video in any event. Thanks for posting OP.

PS - I find the guy's whistling obnoxious and it's almost as if he's trying to cover up what the other people are saying.
