    Link: Mystery In The Mile High Sky - Guy films UFO`s, tells CNN and they come out and film it as well. If it`s on CNN, it`s legit, right?

    Since CNN corroborated with their own footage, sure it`s a UFO. That doesn`t mean it`s aliens, though, just unidentified.

    So, does anyone else think it looks a bit like insects on a low res camera? :-/

    They`re standing in the middle of a field, who is to say its not small insects who live in said field flying close in front of the camera?

    If the aliens are intelligent, they`d stay far, far away.

    University of Denver has a registered drone license, mystery solved. That took me all of 5 minutes in Google, good job CNN.

    It stopped working for me at 1:44...

    CNN`s camera is pretty High Res eh? And it filmed the same things...

    @FP is correct: Unidentified =/= little green men!

    @technophebe: That`s a very reasonable explaination! Welcome to IAB!

    They`re flies and the "thrusters" are just momentary glimpses of their wings. Bunch of tardy media twits.

    Pilotless surveillance drones: they don`t need to stay within human-tolerable g-forces. Assuming this isn`t a complete hoax (it has some credibility with this being CNN and it not being April 1st today), that would be my guess at a plausible explanation.

    If they appear in that same spot regularly wouldn`t it make sense to set-up right beneath them? But no, let`s set-up a mile away and get the shakiest and blurriest images we can.

    The problem with film is that it takes 3d and makes it 2d, so it is difficult to judge distance.

    Bees would be my guess. At some points you can see two on the screen at once going different speeds and different directions, all crazy-like.
