There is no way to calculate the height of the objects from the video...

The only thing you can do is figure out the size / speed ratio, and compare it with known objects.

You can use the body length of the object in the video as a measuring device, and count how many body lengths it travels in 1 second of video. You can use the stars as a reference point.

I did a quick estimate; When an object passes a star, I wait 1 second and pause the video. Then I count how many body lengths the object traveled away from the star. In my first estimate I counted 15 body lengths in 1 second. Using that data we can plug in variables to estimate the size / speed ratio.

So, for example, if the object was a Ring-billed Gull (common in Colorado) which are around 19 inches in length when they are adults, then we can say the object travel 19 inches 15 times in 1 second. That is 285 inches a second. 285 inches a second is 16.4 miles per hour.

Well, a Ring-billed Gulls flight speed is between 11 and 43 miles per hour. So with that, we can support the idea that the objects are birds flying normal speed IF the objects are in fact 19 inches long.

So you're saying birds don't glow in the dark?

I'd agree with that, unless you're using nightvision or infrared equipment, in which case they do glow in the dark. You're not using the right equipment to see them.

Can we please quit posting videos from this guy. I have seen so many of his night vision bird videos on ATS I am about to go insane.
