Suggest you look at Google earth then, does she give an exact location she filmed from or direction the camera was looking at if not I wonder why not

There is no need. Watching her video you can clearly see they are looking south to SW. If the airport is behind them five miles, the exact location is irrelevant. It knocks all plane theories to the swampy mud below

Considering that I suggested in my OP that what has been recorded in the video may be something akin to the Brown Mountain Lights of North Carolina, I thought some videos of them might be appropriate...









There ya go.

X.

WHY the hell does everyone think that chinese lanterns are used in every town for any occasion? it really irks me how close minded and ridiculous people can be! At the same time it doesn't mean that they're ufo's either but CHINESE LANTERNS? come on! please? Apparently it's a fad nowadays or something but Chinese lanterns all over the world? for every video that's ever come out!? sure it may be a few times that they were right about the lanterns but using that excuse for EVERY FREAKIN video? how can you not read what you are typing and think that it's a stretch? OH and they don't rise and fall, they don't turn, those stupid lanterns just float aimlessly. It may not be a ufo but THIS IS NOT lanterns! please deny ignorance!!! i know they're are many hipster morons that would be like "oh how quaint let's use chinese lanterns" especially in california but again COME ON! why would there only be three? or four? the point of those lanterns it to light up the sky with many! use your critical thinking.

Rant over.....


I personally light chinese lanterns a few times a year because me and my kids think they are kinda cool. Depending on the weather conditions, they do in fact rise, fall, switch directions both quickly and slowly, and sometimes just float there. The light is bright sometimes and flickers sometimes. And usually it's only when a crowd of people lights them together that you light up the sky...at around $5.00 to $10.00 each, I don't want to spend that much money to "light up the sky" so I only do a couple at a time. And trust me, I'm most certainly not a "hipster moron".

So, when some of us don't go shouting that the aliens are here after every single light in the sky video, it's not "closed mindedness" - we're just not so open minded that our brains fall out. But for the record, these do not look like chinese lanterns to me. They look more like the traffic helicopters that are seen almost every day in my neck of the woods (Washington state). Maybe other places don't have traffic helicopters - I can't say for sure. But that's what it looks like to me.


i apologize for the generalization(hipster moron) but i just don't like the fact that the lantern theory is now in the same class as Swamp Gas; Weather Balloons; Reflections of light off of Birds. It bothers me because most of the people who say this don't take the time to think or watch the video or read the article.

It's the" pics or it didn't happen" type of thinking. just because you give something a chance and research and decide for yourself deos NOT mean you're letting you're brain spill out. I do believe you're an exception to the post cause you KNOW what the lanterns look like and you STILL KNOW that this is not what it is.

I do believe it is a helicopter as well (as stated in my previous posts). I do think it's just as bad and there are also many who blindly believe with no basis or evidence. so i guess there are the same type of people on both sides of the fence.

Got a utube channel? Go ask her yourself. And be polite about it. But I don't understand why you still need to know that in light of already knowing the airport is behind them. They're not cessnas performing touch and goes at the airport.

How do I know because YOU say that or she says THAT , someone from that area posted that there are 3 airfields in the area NOT one, or are they all behind her.

Because she has no reason to lie where she was filming if they are really airplanes and not a hoax on her part. C'mon man, I said critical thinking in the beginning of this thread. You're not demonstrating this.

The only other thing that resembles an airport is the Jones aviation museum. Go search for it. It's a shack at the end of a dirt road.


The last time I'm going to spoon feed you. There is the Jones Aviation Museum to the N. West and Siller Brothers Airport to the N. East. Both locations are still behind the girl filming so again, not planes at the airport.

That's correct, Chico, Oroville, Glenn county, Red bluff, Military? in a less than 30mile radius. Aircraft in open country easily spotted at far longer ranges.

chinese lanterns are the new generation "sad excuses" replacing weather balloons of the 50's. we'll have to bare with them until they come up with a higher version of baloney.

It's unfortunate I know and I do believe, however a huge percentage of UFOs are chinese lanterns, that's a fact:

mpchris.hubpages.com...




First, there are dozens of them. They seem to float in the air, and given the distance that they are away, they can seem quite large. It seems unlikely that so many helicopters could be floating in the area, without making a noise. Secondly, they drip. They drip wax, which sometimes catches on fire. They might catch on fire themselves. These small extras might give the sense that they are doing something to the surface of the Earth. Or maybe, that a titanic space battle is being fought in our atmosphere. Lastly, they are gone in a pop of light. They seem to explode all at once, instantly igniting then extinguishing themselves. This makes them seem to disappear, almost as if they stopped floating, and dashed up into the heavens.

Well in the video you see a forest that looks sparsely populated with houses, my guess is they are somewhere between those 2 pictures of trees just up from the '5 miles' box. Having watched the video again I just dont think 'airplanes' when watching them, to much floating about and the ascent angle of the one at 11:36 is surely to steep for a small plane like a cessena. Some one already raised that point a few pages back but the debunkers conveniently havent seen it. Lanterns? No, seen tons of videos of lanterns and these look nothing like them. Helicopters? Why would there be 5 helicopters flying about randomly? Traffic helicopters? Over a small looking town with no major roads? Again, why?

For any and all interested here's a stabilized version of the video.
Follow this link youtu.be...
After playing with the video a couple of things caught my eye.



This image is of what appears to be a tower of some sort. What's weird is that it's not lighted and as tall as it is (unless it's a well disguised tree) it should be. The Oroville Municipal Airport is 3 miles SW of downtown Oroville. Looking at aerial navigational maps I couldn't find any towers of any sort where they should be if what we see in the video is air traffic (the touch and go's mentioned).

I also discovered that the airport has no tower so considering the time of the day and the fact that these things continue past dusk I don't think these are student pilots. In fact I think the FAA would have a bowel movement if they discovered that that many students (obviously not IFR certified) were out there practicing at that time of day. There's also the fact that the lights appear to be several miles away from the airport at different times and that's not the usual way T&G's work. They generally never get more than a couple of miles away from the airport before they circle for a landing.

Then there's the landing light theory. I lived at the end of San Diego International for a while and I used to work near the near the airport in Memphis. I've seen landing lights. These are not landing lights and as big as they are they sure as hell aren't landing lights on a small Cessna. No way!

The helicopter theory is another hard one to buy. I have never seen a police helicopter use a search light where there wasn't a distinguishable beam to the ground. Traffic helicopters are dinky little things and I've never seen one equipped with search lights. So, I don't think these are helicopters.

That kind of leaves the military and you know who plus whose to say that they aren't one and the same? There is enough military in the area to certainly make them suspect but even they have rules. The one that stands out is the minimum altitude that must be maintained over inhabited areas. Some of these lights dip down so near the ground they must have been completely silent not to disturb folks on the ground.

I won't even discuss the Chinese lantern theory unless some one can show me one the size of a large weather balloon that would need a propane torch to heat it up.

What are they? Damned if I know but I'd sure like too. And for all the nonsensical crap the OP has had to deal with I have the urge to S&F him again.

It will be interesting to see if these things are ever positively identified but I won't hold my breath. Good job OP!

Absolutely ludicrous statement to make mate, you can make a chinese lantern seem like any size depending on what's around the flame.

The real question is where are Chad Wickus and Phage to debunk this? Seems like a good vid to me. It reminds me of the same UFO I witnessed in front of my house while walking around with my wife who strongly believes that the UFO phenomenon is non-sense. She was speechless and admitted that it was definetely something not from this world. It was like a light bulb floating some 1/4 mile above us.
