Hm.. Makes me wonder if it has anything to do with the hurricane being guided toward New York. In any case, it doesn't seem that storm did much damage to the state of a city. Still, it could be related and part of more signs of times to come very soon.

Indeed ufos have been spotted in disaster afflicted areas PRIOR to the disaster happening MANY TIMES in the past. Example before earthquakes, prior to 9-11 in nyc, volcano eruptions, etc. Sometimes they are said to start wildfires in the summer and cause power outages.

Anything is possible but that does not mean everything unidentified is always an alien craft. I have lived in the counry side for decades with clear skies and can recall 1-2 glaring anomalies. One was likely a satellite burning up in the atmosphere but the other was 99.9999% alien due to its zig-zagging behavior and sudden dissappearance, lights on and off..etc

Used to be weather ballons and swamp gas........

oh well, some people NEVER learn!


Never learn what? What is this video supposed to show us? Are you saying we should have learned these lights are ET? And what evidence that these lights are ET is there? Show me even one light in the sky that has been shown to be ET. I can show you a million different scenarios of lights in the sky being satellites, planes, choppers, flares, lanterns, balloons etc. You're right, some people never learn.

Nope...sorry...as i said pages ago...chinese lanterns.

These forums are crazy mad....everyone jumps on the bandwagon, claiming that it CANNOT be anything of this world..yet it turns out to be lanterns HAHAHA.

Anything people cannot explain is either, paranormal or aliens.....this is the 21st century people, just proves to me the education system has failed big time

Offering another perspective regarding the nature of UFO sightings. In particular the nature of never being conclusive:


The role of Maya

(...) It seems then, that many actions and communications connected with UFOs are consistent with the ancient Vedic worldview. Some UFO entities present philosophies representing particular subsets of Vedic thought. There are discussions of the soul and its evolution in consciousness. There are practical demonstrations of different kinds of travel of the gross and subtle bodies, and of spiritual states of consciousness up to Brahman realization.

There are also theoretical descriptions of these states, especially in channeled communications. I am not aware, however, of any discussions of direct love of God. At the same time, many UFO communications present bizarre stories that vary widely from one case to another. It was shown in Chapter 6 that these stories contradict one another in many details, and thus most are demonstrably full of false assertions. There are also the disturbing UFO abductions, and the indications of overtly harmful UFO activity discussed in Chapter 10. How are we to understand all of this? One interesting idea that appears in some communications is that there is a cosmic law of confusion that regulates the dissemination of information to human beings. This law may help explain why UFO communications seem to contain a bewildering mixture of nonsense and possibly valid information. The Ra entities mentioned this law in accordance with their story of how they built the Great Pyramid of Egypt. When they said that they built it out of thought-forms, they were asked why it was created in separate blocks, as though it had been assembled from quarried stones. Ra replied:

"There is a law which we believe to be one of the more significant primal distortions of the Law of One. That is the Law of Confusion. You have called this the Law of Free Will. ... We did not desire to allow the mystery [of the Great Pyramid] to be penetrated by the peoples in such a way that we became worshipped as builders of a miraculous pyramid. Thus it appears to be made, not thought."/37/

Regardless of how the Great Pyramid was really built, this Law of Confusion is worth thinking about. The basic idea is that in order to preserve the free will of human beings, it is necessary to withhold information from them, and even bewilder them with false information. This concept is interesting, if we consider not only the bewildering character of UFO communications, but also the illusive nature of UFO evidence in general. Often this evidence is strong enough to be impressive, but it is never so overwhelming that a skeptic would be denied his own free will in deciding whether or not to accept it. One can conceive of scenarios, such as a mass landing of UFOs in Washington, D.C., which would be so convincing as to rule out this exercise of free will. Could it be that the Law of Confusion is being applied to the UFO phenomenon so as to preserve people's free will, while at the same time providing useful information for people who are prepared to accept it?

Vedic ideas can throw a great deal of light on the nature of the Law of Confusion. According to the Vedas, the material world is fashioned out of an energy called maya. Maya means, illusion, magic, and the power that creates illusion. The basic Vedic idea is that the universe is created as a playground for souls who seek to enjoy life separately from the Supreme Being. If these souls were in full knowledge of reality, then they would know the position of the Supreme, and they would know that such separate enjoyment is impossible. The universe is therefore created as a place of illusion, or maya, in which these souls can pursue their separate interests. Another aspect of the Vedic worldview is that the Supreme Being wants the materially illusioned souls within the universe to return to Him. But for this to be meaningful, it must be voluntary. The real essence of the soul is to act freely out of love. Thus if the soul is forced to act by superior power, then this essence cannot be realized. For this reason, the Supreme Being tries to give the soul the knowledge of how to return to the Supreme in a delicate way that does not overpower the soul's free will.


If this concept is understood... it should become clear why there is this pervasive and seemingly impossible to get rid of "experience of something beyond this material existence" people keep reporting experiencing... however no proof that would satisfy someone who doesn't *want* to believe will be possible.

Only once the population reaches a certain level of awareness and understanding can more complex possibilities be presented to people for contemplation/arguing/debate... aka "making up your own mind about what you believe is true/possible". But HERE in this portion of the illusion we are currently experiencing... it is *built* to show the possibility, but prevent allowing those not experiencing here to provide absolute proof that couldn't be denied.

Instead it is up to the individual to keep seeking, picking up the clues, revising the image, learning from mistakes or incorrect perspectives, learn the ways you can be manipulated, etc... and eventually through your own free will, develop the image of what's going on around you yourself.

Namaste!

Hey I resemble that remark!

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I have yet to call a UFO alien on this forum, but I will call a spade a spade, because I have seen craft that the general public apparently isn't aware of, and I've always said they were ours I believe.

On the flip side of your comment, anyone who says definite UFO does not always imply ALIENS, many imply "unknown (to us) flying object" until "proven" otherwise beyond a reasonable doubt.
That includes all "it could be's" and various "it looks exactly like's" too.

If aliens could get here, I think they'd also be smart enough to keep their distance from us at this point in time, we are really screwed up bad right now and I can't imagine any benevolent species would want any part of our goings on here.

Yeah, I find it kinda hard to believe the can just say they are always Chinese Lanterns, especially when no one was close enough to see what it was. Still UFO's.
