UFO's over Tampa? You decide






TAMPA, FL -
Just about all of us have seen the videos and heard about the so-called government cover-ups. What is it? You guessed it, unidentified flying objects or UFO's. Mainstream and topic specific media has been reporting on UFO sightings in the United States and abroad for years. Now, this unexplained phenomenon may have visited the Tampa Bay area. Harbour Island to be precise.

Our own meteorologist, Brooks Garner witnessed and recorded something this past week that he can't explain with certainty what the objects may be. While he has his own theories of their possible terrestrial origin, one look at the video has many wondering if they could be of this world.

Now mind you, Garner is a scientist. He is an expert on weather and atmospheric conditions. He's also one of the most professional and sane people you can meet. So, if he can't explain what he witnessed, you better believe it's legitimate. Garner said, "The evening was quite with some overcast while I was walking my dog Oscar. Out of nowhere comes this parade of lights in various formations traveling across the sky and disappearing to the north of downtown Tampa." Judging by ground-based objects against the moving objects in the sky, Garner said they appeared to be moving at speed.


ETA: Article Source

I think the most interesting part of this is that Brooks Garner (the meteorologist) wasn't able to explain these. I am presuming he is not very versed in the Chinese culture and the ever growing popularity of lanterns that get launched for various events.

Lantern burns and flies for approximately 5 - 10 minutes, in optimal weather conditions. This means you may need some help if you plan to let fly many of these at the same time.


So how do you explain that?

Well, 5 minutes is actually a long time if you really think about it and time it...a lantern can travel a really great distance in that time (I've released them myself during celebrations and they have traveled out of sight before the sterno flame is extinguished.

Decided.
UFO's over Tampa.

These type of lights show up a bunch.
Chicago, places in Mexico, I have seen a few
videos with very similar objects.

I guess it depends on the lantern and the fuel used , this source says they can burn for up to 15 minutes , As Krakatoa says you can travel a long way in that time .

They can burn for five to 15 minutes whereas a firework has an explosive pyrotechnic component [and] once it explodes, it's spent, so you've got less than one minute's time on most fireworks," Larsen explained.

Thats how I explain that

My impression was helicopters. That many would indicate gov/military helicopters.

If it helps, this was published on March 17th. If this was published the same night it was video'd. Knowing Tampa, I am sure numerous St. Patrick's Day festivities were occurring, with the popularity of lantern launching becoming more prevalent with various celebrations (weddings, birthdays, just because)...it becomes more likely (at least to me) that these are what this fella captured on video.

Video looks good to me... I thought lanterns at first but they moved very smoothly. I would think they would be blowing around if they were lanterns. Not sure what they are...

Seeing as they are all moving at the same slow speed in the same direction being pushed by the wind. It could easily be simple white LED balloons if you think they have been flying to long for Chinese Lanterns.

According to WFLAs Facebook post...the meteorologist is the one that shot the video

Holy electroluminescence, Batman! Good answer! That makes hoaxing easier than ever.

But one could also go to a remote desert area, bend and clamp a long flexible rod into a 40' circle, tie a bunch of those helium-filled "Illooms" to it, send it aloft, and shoot zoomed video, hoping the real thing will show up to check it out and get caught on candid handicam.

Imagine seeing this overhead

It's a UFO (or multiple) alright. What rules out the lanterns for me is the fact that they seem to move at the same speed, at the same distance and at the same height all together.

Covers a great distance too, wow! Anyone who can estimate how high up those lights would be?

I am going to buy some of those then do an experiment. I will record sending them up myself then check ATS for the next few days to see if any UFO claims are made. I want to see if people say balloons or aliens.

First off . They are nothing more than white pixels , so it would be pure speculation as to what they are .
However , they do have the same flight characteristics of Chinese lanterns , or even LED balloons .

I doubt a fleet of flying crafts would move that slowly across the sky , unless of course they are helicopters .

As already pointed out, the behavior of the lights shown in the video could match lanterns or LED balloons. So while we do not have a definitive explanation for the lights shown in the video, we do have more than one possible explanation.

Thanks for posting it. Still a breathtakingly beautiful display even if likely mundane in origin, let's not lose sight of that!

Yesterday night I got these two short videos of fast moving objects over Miami, FL, not far from Tampa:

would of liked the camera to stay fixated in one place so i could see the movement of the lights better
