Can anyone here positively identify these lights in the sky over Santiago?

It`s a small town across the mountain higher than the horizon. Lights flickering because zoom sucks at night.

I suppose if I were going to try my hand at some digital editing for a fake UFO vid, that just drawing strange orbs/lights would be much easier than actually trying to design and insert a whole space ship into said vid.

Fun fact: The aliens carefully study us to learn who can and cannot control simple devices such as cameras. When they find a large group of technically inept people in one place, they know they are safe from proper zooming and steady camera shots so they appear in all their glory to hand out icecream.

considering the size of the universe, to think we are the only intelligent life is extremely egotistical. and if there is (and there certainly is)civilizations more advanced than us, and if they COULD travel here...why wouldn`t they? we travel to the depths of the ocean to study tube worms.

that being said...its very hard to take any of these crappy ufo videos seriously.

Maybe the light is a by-product of their (insert type o energy creation we haven`t figured out yet) engine that allows for faster than light travel.

The argument that UFO`s wouldn`t be ready for Earth particular gravity is a moot one. Clearly they would have Gravity on their planet, which, for all we know, may be the size of Jupiter, and they don`t even feel the gravity of Earth because of the pressures they are adapted to.

If an alien makes a bad decision, it is ok to say they`re only human?

jburgh - exactly my point.

Why abduct cattle or humans when they can tap into library we have? Why fly around in the middle of the night with their lights on? Why even bother flying hundreds of light years across the galaxy just to abduct people and play dentist or make circles in the fields?

Why is every bit of video shot of UFOs from far away, blurry, shaking and generally not worth crap?

Believing this crap is having a mental disability.

these "ufo`s" always come out at night with these bright lights on them, almost as if they want to be seen. what else are the lights for?

You know why you never see any clear photos of a UFO? They always come out looking like airplanes.

This is the real deal, wether you like it or not. Disclosure is imminent. We´ll be using 5Dtechnology by 2015. Think about it.

@madest, you are the most predictable poster on IAB, besides 5cats of course. If it`s involving aliens and UFO`s you can be sure it was posted by madest.

Looks like aerial flares, dropped in clusters of four, and even the latter part could just be the effect of wind or even zooming in with the camera. I also wonder why the camera operator happened to be filming an empty black Santiago sky unless he knew military jets were about.

It certainly doesn`t look like anything on Earth I`ve ever seen. But naturally, I`m skeptical.

@freddyferret or id like to hope a society so advanced would see that whipping out another civilization would be a point less waste of life.

I sincerely hope not. Because if it really is from another planet, they`ll piss off a race with technology way beyond ours and we`ll be f*cked. They`ll come wipe us out without ever landing on the planet because some idiot freaked out and fired.

No they won`t. Nobody wants to shoot down a UFO and then go, "Oh, it was a passenger jet after all. Silly me."

I saw two UFOs earlier this evening. Two slow-moving lights dancing through the sky in parallel. Turns out they were part of a Chinese Lantern festival thing that was going on in Belfast. Weirded me out at first.

@username3415 You know, if there were more people like you we`d still be in the dark ages. People who choose to stay wishfully ignorant and dismiss everything they don`t understand as acts of supernatural beings or miracles instead of actually investigating what happening to find out what is really going on. It saddens and frustrates me that people use those kinds of bull s**t excuses so they don`t have to go investigate for themselves. They`re not only screwing themselves. but dragging everyone else around them into the dark. Get fisted, and have a nice day :)

"With today`s technology, why are these kind of videos ALWAYS crappy in quality?"

It looks like that was filmed on a cell phone, which would explain why it looks kind of crappy. Now as far as what we were actually seeing, the best someone could say was, not identifiable.

As usual, it looks like Michael J Fox was the cameraman in charge of the zoom button.

"And I sayeth, Jesus said that there would be evil forces and hallucinations at work to try to break our belief in the Lord. Can I have an amen. This is simply a satanic illusion."

Nothing says senseless hallucinations like looking at burning bushes, imagining that you have 2 of every animal on your boat, and the first zombie, JC.

@Birdfather Flying indicated a physical presence, so, for all intensive purposes, light isn`t flying.

What this is, is an alien road trip. You see, they are using the ancient markings and buildings as a "road map." Don`t you guys watch the History channel? It is fact...because it is on the History channel....

If only there was some way to capture clear images.. some kind of "high definition" technology.. i guess we won`t know the truth until someone invents it..

I`m shocked, stunned and faberglasted! Blinky lights at night, far away, on low quality video. I was on the fence before, but I`m convinced now! Surely aliens are here!

Obvious, irrefutable proof of alien intelligence visiting us!





Clearly those are police helicopters and nothing more.

Looks like one of the microlite display teams. One of the teams opened the biggest race-course in the world, a short while back, and did a night display like that, complete with flames coming out of the back of them. Not as cool as a military display team, but cheaper.

looks a little more legit than the other ufo postings on the IAB. Though that camera was held very steady - it must have been mounted on a tripod.

I think it is just swamp gas from a weather balloon trapped in a thermal pocket, reflecting light from Venus.
