20 or 30 years ago we had weather balloons, swamp gas, chinese lanterns to explain all the unidentified flying objects crossing our skies.
Now it's time for quadcopters equiped with leds and drones.
Are military drones (now adapted to other purposes, please check for example the drone tech used by news agencies to observe the protests in Moscow or
Rio de Janeiro against president Dilma Rouseff) the new and inexpensive way to discredit ufo sightings and ufology alltogether?
Plus are these drones who look very close to flying saucers being created on purpose by the government or someone behind the curtain?
No, but it is quite likely plenty of people saw drones in development near places like Area 51 or Edwards AFB and thought they were UFOs in the
Also some people get a kick out of fooling people (who are easily fooled) by making their own home made radio controlled UFOs.
The technology to make one and light it up so bright it can be seen a mile away with cheap chinese made, ultra bright LED strips is very cheap.
This is why "lights in the sky" UFOs are largely ignored anymore by anyone with a serious interest in investigating the truly strange.
Lights in the Sky reports represent what's called "noisy data" in science. And there is really no good way to cut down on the noise so serious
investigators, the media and everyone else with any sense moves on to stuff that isn't so easily explained like the UFO over O'Hare airport.
