Yeah, I know, another video with no ending (ie. the UFO departing in an alien manner), however I'm posting this because I'd like someone to definitively identify these objects. The editor mentions that they may be high flying jets, but it's very strange how the three together are practically in a straight line, however judge for yourself:

www.ufocasebook.com...


There were a total of six white UFOs filmed by several people over Tokyo on Christmas Day.



The story also ran in the daily Takuma newspaper which caused a sensation making the videos and photos go viral in Japan.



(Editor's Note: We are posting this for all to see, although I don't know why it went viral. To me, these look like they could be high-flying jets, but I cannot say that without some reservation.

I'll stick with that one, cause that's exactly what it looks like.

High altitude planes leaving small contrail's lit up by the low sun.

It's entirely possible it could be "stacked" aircraft on approach or inbound etc.

But

The size and angle of these "things" are odd.

They look to be at a 30 deg angle and no jet fly's like that, let alone in formation.

Very odd.

Thanks for the heads up

Interesting video although I'm not seeing any clear evidence that these lights should remain unidentified indefinitely; no erratic movements, overly quick pace or even strange coloring to suggest that they are abnormal.

As a side note, the misuse of apostrophes in these replies is disappointing.

I'm not sure how you can tell they are stationary from that video. If they are planes heading toward the horizon, then they could be very far off (even 75+ miles away) which means their apparent motion relative to the camera would appear to be very slow.

I've seen planes off in the distance like this leaving contrails in the sunset, and they also appeared to be moving very slowly (due to the distance).

I'm not saying I'm 100% sure that these are NOT stationary, but this video by no means proves that they ARE stationary, either.

Long range images taken at dusk always raise a red flag,...

This may be a case where "tricks of light' can make the mundane look unusual.
I'm not saying it's not E.T. it's just that dusk makes atmosphere events look like more than they are sometimes...

agreed...

perhaps I should have said .. 'they seem to be stationary'

looking at the vid, the only other thing I would think is, they're moving directly away from the camera; however, there are multiple shots of the same objects, indicating that they should be moving, in either direction, IMO. Seeing the reflection at that distance would suggest the 'craft' are significantly huge, due to the observation distance.

also, they aren't commerical, FAA rules come into play here, but, if there's an airport directly over the objects being observed or a mile or 2 out, they could be all lined up to land..

hard to tell...but, the reflection of the objects are, to me, indicate the size of the craft.

a few points :

" going viral " is not a synonym for veracity

the absence of any backstory is distressing [ why does including a back story seem to have fallen out of favour ]

size of a physical object does not always correlate to its apparent visibility [ that's why people cary signal mirrors - a 1.8m human is very hard to spot from 5km away - but in the right conditions a 150mm signal mirror can attract attention from 10km away ]

PS - I think its jets on a flight corridor / holding formation too - now if we had a backstory to this tail - someone with expert knowledge of Japanese flight procedures could instantly confirm or refute this theory

Living under one end of the busy trans-atlantic air corridor, I've seen planes like this before, heading west into the sunset, many times. The distance from the observer is very great, making it difficult to track motion over time, and although the aircraft may seem to be in a dead straight line that doesn't mean they are.

O look, Thor, Zeus, and Set. What clowney clouds.

The following is a snapshot of the air traffic at sunset on the 25th December. That would have been 1638 Tokyo time and 0738 GMT. Mount Fuji is visible in the video.



Flight Radar 24 from 1638 Tokyo time at Sunset 25 December 2013

This is a classic case of contrails at distance being lit at sunset. You also have to take into consideration all the airliners in that region during that time period. Anything unusual is going to be reported. Nothing is being reported because the aircrew themselves are simply seeing the sunlit contrails of the aircraft in their proximity as they follow the upper air route.

I concur. That's exactly what it looks like. Many people just don't look at the sky enough to learn to spot ordinary things. Then they see this and think it's UFOs.

Just to add a bit more to this thread:



theufobureau.com...

Whatever they are, they do not look like planes. They look more like clouds.
