I'm going to make this very simple for you to understand. When you zoom in on something that is a good deal of a distance away, movement becomes greatly exaggerated. Example: Watch a comet with the naked eye, seems to be moving relatively slow across the night sky. Now take a telescope and tell me how much you have to move the telescope to keep the comet within the eyesight.

The Bronx video is taken from a much greater distance than the lantern video. Watch the Bronx video again and tell me how fast the lower light takes to reach the lights (lanterns) that have already reached their maximum velocity. Plus, if your an alien civilization that just travel who knows how far, wouldn't you have fixed the problem of flickering lights on your space craft?

lol i wasnt born yesterday
you can talk out your butt as much as you want SIMPLE FACT you were not there to calculate distance
all yours doing is guesstimating from a crap quality video .... this isn't proper debunking

i haven't once said anything about aliens i haven't even said exactly what they are...because i don't know i can admit that
allot of people here think they know everything and you don't... so stop trying to act like oyu do

Ok but this isnt a comet so you cannot compare this to that........you're way off with that one..... try something else to compare...

Are you serious? much greater distance?........

To me, it seems like the Bronx lights are closer than the ones that shows in New York City(manhattan) (where I live in) footage. Why I say this? because when you look inside the city from the Bronx,Queens,Brooklyn.. and you know the areas good enough... You can tell difference with distances cause the city has all those skyscrapers as reference point.

In fact, the Lantern video in Manhattan are also higher than the Bronx lights.

So here we have........ Bronx lights are lower and closer than the lantern lights over Manhattan.

All that flickering could be communications signals and nothing more........ dont assume that ists damage or has a problem..... it could be normally fine to them as they see it... if they were Aliens

Please, stop with the simple minded-ness. When I speak of distance, I am talking about the zoom. I'm tired of trying to convince you these are lanterns. You have even helped me in this case as soon as you posted the lantern video. I haven't heard one thing from your side explaining to me how this is a ufo besides "look, how it moves all weird. oh no, a triangle!"

Got a poster "michellinda25" repeating that these were last-minute celebrations for her sister's passing on Youtube.

Correct again, I do not know everything. Proper debunking?
Dropping oxymorons now I see

The guy with the camera moves further down the street after filming the initial 4 visible lanterns. The other lanterns that are revealed in the next shot of the sky were previously hidden behind the building.

he was on a side street all he did was cross the street ...counted 5 sec the camera wasn't pointed on objects before he got to other side and panned back up on objects didn't pass by buildings that would reveal other objects. he was pretty much in same point of view

Thats unfortunate. Do they have a video of them releasing these lanterns or any witnesses to the releasing of these lanterns.?

My guess would be yes, but the nature of this being a personal matter, I would find it hard for her to post just to debunk a ufo story.

No doubt the Believers will accuse her of being a paid government disinfo agent black ops debunker CIA troll.

Pretty awesome capture! I was going in and out on my roof before the storm came in (I live in Brooklyn) to try and see if I saw the usual light orbs in the sky, but to no avail. I should've checked after the storm, but I was sleeping soundly.

Probably for the best

Why do so many "believers" automatically assume a light in the sky is alien in origin? Why would aliens capable of space travel need lights? I would think an advanced space faring race wouldn't need lights plastered all over their spacecraft to navigate. Maybe they do it for the lulz?

Can you do a screen capture of this or provide a link. Just want to be 100% sure

posted on Aug, 28 2011 @ 12:57 PM

That was never said on this tread. Its obviously you are here to just bash Believers instead of contributing. You should leave.

Well Im talking about is not zooming but the normal views........ Bronx doesnt zoom in..... the Manhattan video the guy zooms in but also has it at normal focus during the video.

Therefore, take into consideration of viewing the manhattan video without the zooming part and there, you can compare the distance like I did..

It seem like you just giving up on this ........you running out explainations

And exactly, its a UFO, unidentified flying object so I can not explain to you something that I or you do not know what it is........ and dont say its lanterns... All I could only do is analyze the movement,the distances and the brightness.
