    looks like a blurry out of focus moon shown through a bushy tree to look like multiple lights.

    Maybe because it’s behind a tree? Just saying, I can do the same thing with the moon. Gives the effect because the leaves are moving. I do believe in ufos not sure about this one though.

    But what if it IS NOT the moon filmed through trees, you boneheads are grasping for straws trying to automatically explain away something that may in fact be exactly as presented.

    Looks like a Google-X Project called Loon.

    I have attempted for a long time to find a video that represents the UFO I saw on 1/19/13 near Boulder, which I reported to the National UFO Reporting Center (www.nuforc.org/webreports/096/S96158.html). Mine was a daylight sighting but looked very much like what the MN witness videotaped at night.

    Yeah, it’s hard to tell whether it is the moon behind trees or not. We don’t see any stars or any other forms of reference near it.

    I caught something on video once but have multiple other sightings. For reference, this object is well behind another tall apartment building, and probably on the other side of the highway and up to a mile away. Its filmed 1/2 speed in night vision and you can see it move at ~2 min. then dance around in the trees while blinking (recommend clicking HD and having a large screen). I don’t claim to know what it is but it doesn’t seem to offer a conventional explanation.

    About 1964-65,I was walking with friends one night in Brooklyn N.Y..Looking up I saw six lights,almost like stars,moving slowly They were in a formation that looked like two triangles.They stopped and the two lights that would be the points of the triangles,moved in line with the others making a shape of a six on dice, then it was gone. Fast forward 1988 and I’m watching a UFO documentary and there is the same formation I saw years before.There was seventh light in this formation that I may have missed before. I have had two other sightings over the years one also witnessed by a friend. As I was pointing out the constellations Scorpio and Sagittarius a light,like a star blinked three and a half times made like a U turn and disappeared between the two signs. Still looking, there out there.
