As you can guess, I have been over this video very thoroughly. I know that many of you have as well, and you continue to do so. I am posting because I
would like to give you all my final analysis on the Oroville Lights.
I want to say first that I am a big fan of UFOology and especially, as mentioned previously, High Strangeness
. I tend towards Jacques Vallee
and his ideas about the whole phenomenon. That said I still like to think that there are elements to the whole thing which will prove one day that our
world is infinitely stranger than we can ever imagine it is, it kinda happens every day in science and technology. Especially these days. So, I'm
rambling. I am really just trying to say that my critical thinking can have hiccups at moments when my imagination goes in to over drive.
I got hung up on the part of the video that is featured in the second set of images I posted. I had already begun to get the feeling that it was
aircraft as I was picking the vid apart. But when it came to the sequence that begins at 6:36 in the stabilized video provided by Gortex, I just could
not figure it out.
I had a feeling (I go with the gut when thinking does not pan out) that it was a problem of perspective. I consulted with an artist friend and
although she was not certain she suggested that I seemed to be on the right track. So...
I went ahead and consulted with a couple of our aviation professionals here at ATS. They shall go nameless unless they would like to join the thread
and offer their posts. You see, more brains is better than one some times. So it was very helpful to get their advice.
Now here is what really set me off, folks. The banter from the kids. I began to realize that the boy and 'Maya' are pranking the girl that seems to be
making the video. I can just hear it in their voices. They know that they are airplanes. I think that Maya actually pities her for a moment before
getting back to pranking her.
I am sorry, MadiG, but that is my opinion. I understand if you feel betrayed.
I cannot in good conscience go another day without letting you know what I think here in my final analysis. Take it as you will.
Thems is aeroplanes, ATS.
Thank you for making this exciting for everyone.
