Perhaps unlikely, but then, when thousands of them are circling for an extended time, it's more likely that a few will do a triangle. Heck, some may
have even done a hexagon or something.
Just because it's unlikely doesn't mean impossible. Birds and bats in the light not just here, but everywhere, is a known, common occurrence. The
only thing making this slightly interesting is a "triangle" that lasts several seconds. Take the time to carefully measure the "sides" of that
triangle and see if they stay equal length. I am kind of doubting it.
are you suggesting it's impossible for lights in an area where there are birds to be UFO's?
now don't scoff at that question, it's prettttty much the same as the one you have just asked.
i mean seriously how dense do you assume i must be?
i do realise that any three points form a blah blah blah
but that is so completely misrepresenting what is going on here that i'm starting to wonder if i'm being trolled.
did you actually watch the video?
it's not three birds out of a mass that just happen to form a triangle for a few seconds
it is three lights, seperate from the rest, staying what seems to be a pretty fixed distance apart,
making the 'triangle' between them appear to rotate
it doesn't last seconds, it lasts minutes
gyroscoping away without a care in the world
it is totally incredible
the only thing more incredible is that so many people can look at it and go
YEAH THREE POINTS MAKE A TRIANGLE DURR
i get that. i really do. i so do.
can we maybe now potentially address what is actually happening in the video?
while we're at it, i would still like to know how that one bird/bat/sea cucumber manages to just kick it hovering in place for so long... no one's
even attempted to make a ridiculously underwhelming and fallacious observation about that one yet.
