Interesting video footage of lights over the ocean:

Not sure what this could be.

Back, around when the 9/11 terrorist attack happened, I was standing outside, and noticed that way way way high up in the sky, I was seeing these sparkling objects moving back and forth, and sometimes I could see them, and sometimes I could not.


Being so soon after 9/11, I was wondering if I was actually witnessing a forthcoming attack...like...was someone dropping bombs on us? Should I go inside and tell everyone to take cover? Should I go inside and get someone else to come see this?


At the end of the day, I didn't do any of those things, but I did mention the phenom on a forum I was a member of. One of my friends said it sounded like a particular flock of birds. He told me the name, but I forget now. Anyway, there was a flock of birds that flew really really high, and sometimes, the sun would shine on them, causing them to 'sparkle' in the sun. Seriously...it looked like falling glitter to me.


But if I'd filmed it...I bet I could've persuaded some that it was a UFO phenomenon. I've never seen that since.


The footage is way cool though.

I've seen stuff like that numerous times north Wickenburg, AZ. There were times I'd see an orange orb flying in the sky, break off into multiple orbs, zoom around the sky over the desert, merge into one, and suddenly disappear.

Regarding the OP, the discussion I've heard is that they are some sort of flares used for target practice by the military. There are a bunch of bases here in NC.

For the other objects (quoted above) did you see these during daylight? Perhaps they were Iridium Flares. I've only seen this twice during the day but it was pretty cool.

It WAS during the day. Like 10:00ish in the morning.


Another thought, regarding the OP...yesterday and today is supposed to be good viewing for meteor showers. Maybe the footage is showing debris that broke up entering into our atmosphere? Just a thought.

Except the military said they were not doing practices in the area, and the closest base is 125 miles away.

Its fairly common for them to use 'flares' as an explanation for incidents like this, even though tests have been done with flares, and they do not appear anything like what was seen, oh yeah, Ive never heard of any flares that merge with another and break off randomly!


Its amazing they still expect people to believe the old flares explanation! LOL I guess swamp gas was getting used to much.


*They know what these things are...we are being primed for the next BIG threat to our safety/security, something that will require LOTS of budget money to deal with.

They always tell us it's flares... or weather balloons... or other such garbage. Why lie about it?

10,000 people witnessed The Phoenix Lights back in the late 90s. Something huge flew slowly and purposefully across three states. 911 was jammed with calls from concerned citizens. When a congresswoman demanded answers from government, the newsmedia made her out to be a lunatic.

Why is it so difficult for people to admit we're not alone in this universe?


In 1942 US military fired upon a UFO over Los Angeles.
