This video might look like the video posted by fellow member Bybyots on the thread "Swarm of Lights Appear Over Argentina and Chile And Is Filmed From
Six Cameras.,", however, this was taken over New York, and if I'm correct, this video was taken couple of days after the video that Bybyots posted was
taken, so I cannot see how a "satellite" could have still be seen falling two days after, in another country, and even appear higher.
That is unless, the objects in the video posted by Bybyots weren't actually part of a satellite.
Your first conclusion might be that because the uploader of the video frequently uploads UFO videos, then this is most likely hoax. However, this was
apparently sent to the uploader, so this video has no connections to the uploader, other than the fact that it was uploaded by him/her.
The fact that this was taken around the same date as the video given by Bybyots makes me think there is some connection between the two. However, I
just cannot understand how a satellite can fall for two days, appear in multiple countries, and even apparently gain altitude while still being able
to cross vast distances in two days without disintegrating or hitting the ground.
For the claims that these are Chinese lanterns, here is the upper air data for very early May 12, 2013, which would be around the time this video was
As you can see, most of New York had 850-500mb winds in the 40-50mph range, with some areas having upper level winds in the 55-65mph range. However,
as wind speed increases with height, it is likely that the 850mb winds (around 5000 feet, or about one mile in the sky) were lower than that; probably
in the 20-30mph range.
However, as another member pointed out, the objects look to be going much faster than that, as they appear to cover a large part of the sky in a short
amount of time.
It is unlikely that these are Chinese lanterns, as for the lanterns to be moving at such speed, they would need to much higher than 5000 feet,
however, since Chinese lanterns usually do not go higher than a mile in the sky, these are likely not Chinese lanterns.

No clue what they are. I can't see there being that many planes flying at that close of an interval. Is there some sort of military operation there
involving helicopters, it seems like they are too slow for jets.
They do look like Chinese lanterns but they seem to be traveling at least 60 miles an hour? Those lights are covering at least a mile in one minute.
No Chinese lantern could withstand that type of wind force. Plus it doesn't even seem breezy out.
Jim Oberg and Ted Molzcan called it; I am pretty sure in that order. It was an interesting addition to UFO lore as civilian investigators figured out
what the light show was before the commercial company that launched it.
I don't think that anything else can be added, that Jim O did not add, that could make it any more clear that what was recorded over Argentina and
Chile was the Cygnus Mass Simulator burning in.
This video is very good because it clearly shows the parts of the CMS burning out...
When you learn that the Cygnus Mass Simulator was largely made of aluminum
it is not surprising that it burned as brightly as it did which is beautifully demonstrated in this video from the thread mentioned in your OP
As far as the video that you have posted, those are the most Chinese Lantern-like UFOs I have personally ever seen; and it's New York!. It's not
like New York does not have a widely varied multi-ethnic population and one would never expect to see something like Chinese lanterns.
I remember on Halloween night in 1989 or 1990. My dad took us trick-or-treating. While we were heading back home, we saw what looked like seven
stars moving just like in that video. Six of them were in the form of a big circle, and the last one was trailing right behind the others. Like
o o o
They were toward the Eastern horizon, and they were heading from north to south. They never broke formation, and remained the same speed the whole
time we saw them. My uncle lived in a town 18 miles to the south of us and he called my mom a while after we got home to see if any of us had seen
them. I don't know if what he said next was true or not, but I remember he claimed he watched them melt away like blue plastic.
But anyway, I have no idea what my dad, my brother and sister, and I saw that night, but this video reminded me of it and I thought I'd share that.
I don't believe in "grays", but either they were some kind top secret aircraft, or maybe people do have the ability to make Chinese lanterns fly in
perfect formation like that and not change speed, regardless of wind speed. Crazy stuff, anyway!
i did watch that other video and this doesn't quite look the same to me. as i watch it, i don't get the feeling that it has been faked, of course,
all we're looking at is unidentified dots of light on a black sky. could be anything i suppose, but it's an awful lot of unexplained dots. i'm
inclined to vote "spaceships", with "chinese lanterns" a close second
They appear to me to be drifting rather than being under powered flight and they seem to be being released fairly nearby , its a shame we don't have
a more precise location for the video but I have found a report which may be associated with this sighting .
At 11:45 PM on the night of May 11, 2013 I went to my front porch and lit a cigarette. I noticed two bright points in the sky over the city of
Binghamton. These points of light were much brighter than anything I’ve seen in the sky. At first glance I thought the lights were airplanes flying
away from me which gave them the appearance of floating.
They steadily arose into the sky displaying a brilliant red color with a pulsing yellow to orange interior. I thought they could have been Chinese
lanterns, but as the first two objects drifted into the clouds, out of sight, two more lifted into the sky, and didn’t take the same flight path.
Over the next 20 minutes my girlfriend and I witnessed a total of ten glowing objects rise and vanish into the NNE to NNW. I felt a sense of surprise
and wonder as I peered at the objects through the binoculars. UFO Sighting in Binghamton, New York
on May 11th 2013
The objects in the video seem consistent with lanterns to me as does the above report ... Which may or may not be linked with this sighting .
