With cameras everywhere, why are there so few pictures and videos of these drones?

I watched the videos that are available. Very unconvincing. Single lights in the sky and the guy and his girlfriend chasing what they thought were drones for 15 miles at speeds exceeding 70mph. Why were the drones following the highway? Sounds like they were chasing bright stars or the planet Venus.

Where are the videos of fleets of "up to 30" drones flying in specific patterns?

Sounds like a few people have been flying their small hobby type drones at night, millions have been sold and thousands have been received as Christmas presents this year alone, and the reports of large numbers are due to people's imagination? And how do they know how high they are flying? It's almost impossible to judge the height of a blinking light at night.

It's not.

Yes, you're right. I could have sworn it was Arizona but not according to google.

Google results The Forrest Fenn treasure

Where is the treasure of Forrest Fenn?
Your Quest to Find Fenn's Treasure Starts Here! The treasure is above 5,000 feet elevation (and under 10,200). It's north of Santa Fe, in the Rocky Mountains of New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming or Montana.

This could be a 'treasure hunt' greater than just the one lost treasure. With LIDAR they could be looking for signs of any ancient civilizations, hidden mines, lost early settlements, mineral deposits or whatever. We don't really know unless somebody finds the people launching those drones.

What if a foreign enemy like North Korea was conducting this survey? Of course that is probably unlikely; but hopefully we will get some answers in the near future?

As far as the other poster's comment about shooting them down: Like it was stated; it is probably illegal. But they did say in one news reports I read that they were flying at an altitude that would make it difficult to shoot them down.

You're right, they could be looking for anything. I wish someone would shoot one of them down.

Really ? You want random people shooting ammo up in the air. What about all the times they miss. Would you want ammo falling onto your yard?

Actually our military was working on drones that would take down other drones. I am sure there are some links to some of the testing that was being done. In light of the attack on the Saudi oil fields I am sure many are working on the problem of neutralizing drones and some must have some answers.

One of the other problems we face is simply being able to track these drones. I have no idea how effective our current radar is at pinpointing their locations?

I've been picturing that they're more so in wooded areas and if that's the case, yes, someone should shoot at least one down. Maybe they can see what video it's taking. I wonder if they have hard drives. Obviously I know nothing about drones

Yuma County Sheriff Todd Combs said in a Facebook post Tuesday it appears the drones were staying at least 150-200 feet away from buildings and people and are flying in airspace controlled by the federal government.

As far as I know; our FAA controls all the airspace over the US. Some areas are more restrictive than other areas.

Here is a link to one of their websites and notice all of the talk about drones on that page: https://www.faa.gov/uas/recreational..._restrictions/.
