If you get light-sensitive equipment, video like this can be recorded practically anywhere. So the videographer has a good question: what aren't we being told?

This appears to be a blimp of some sort, but it's not entirely clear what it is. Unidentified at present.
Another large array of lights, this time over England. No evidence of trickery or an obvious case of mistaken identity.

This could be some sort of lantern, but the light source seems brighter than a candle. It is not an aircraft, and the overcast rules out a satellite or star.
Lights dropping into the treeline in Oregon, landing in New Mexico--is something unusual really going on, or is the unusual becoming usual??

Another of the many UFO fleet videos that have suddenly started emerging worldwide. These seem to be moving more as if they are floating in the air, but without knowing wind direction, there is no way to be certain that they are balloons. Given all the other fleet reports we are getting, we are including this one as a 'possible.'

This is not a fake video and the group of lights is shows are hard to explain except as unknown objects.
More than 40 UFOs appeared over Elizabeth, Pa, another in what is becoming a worldwide 'UFO fleet' phenomenon.
This story illustrates how poorly UFO activity is monitored and reported. It's a real failure that there is not a reliable international reporting system.

This video, at a stretch, could be a plane, but it really does look like something different. Taped over Whitley Strieber's home town.

Sadly, it appears that the Jerusalem UFO that caused so much exciitement is just another hoax. Why do they bother?
This sighting report comes from a Boston area witness who observed the object described in Amherst, Mass. If you also saw this object, you can use the link to post a sighting report.

"I've never looked into UFO websites but would really appreciate some info. Last night I was working in Amherst nh in a private home overnight. House is located at the top of a hill with a view. Looked out the winds at about 11pm in the direction of the towns new boston, Mont vernon and Milford. I think. I thought I saw a shooting star at dirt but then watched a very very brilliant bright light in the sky at treelike height. It was gold toned and brighter than anything I've seen in the sky before. It moved a quick jerky motions up and down and side to side not in a large portion of the sky, kept right at the tree line but moved in those motions. Wish I had recorded it but I only watched it for about 2 or 3 minutes then it was gone. I do not follow UFO sightings or story's yet im not in disbelief as to what I saw, I know what I saw wasn't usual.  I've tried looking this morning on the web to see if there was anything about but haven't found anything yet, I need to know someone else saw it."

If this is indeed a UFO photo, it is a highly unusual one, in that it shows light beaming down from an object immediately above the car.

This is an interesting photograph. Daylight objects in an organized formation, very clear. Maybe something IS about to happen--at last. And none too soon. We need help around here--if this is help...

Yeah, it was because there were too many alien movies this summer. Except there were fewer than last summer. Yeah, it was because people are outside during the summer. Except UFO sightings don't normally peak in the summer months. They are steady throughout the year. But the chances of this being an 'alien invasion,' as this article states don't seem very great. There have been bigger UFO flaps in the past, such as the 1952 flap that sent Washington into a tizzy. We'll be watching the statistics, and continuing to record sighting reports here on Out There.
From Scotland comes a report on Sept 19 that red lights were seen over Cairneyhill, and from Croatia 2 nights earlier that a similar phenomenon appeared in Rijeka. The Scottish report specifically states that they did not appear to be sky lanterns. The Croatian report is less specific.

From Croatia:

Date of Sighting/Encounter (if known): September 17, 2011
Time of Sighting/Encounter (if known): 21:10 P.M.
Location of Encounter: Croatia, Rijeka
Details of Encounter: There were red shining spots, at least 30 of them, crossing the sky; watched them for about 1 minute; traveling soundless NE toward SW; Shaped like letter P; Yellow and red colors (mostly red); no sound, no stopping

Was this what it seems? We'll never know, but judging from all the letters from Australia reporting close encounters that the Striebers have gotten over the years, this could well be an abduction attempt that went wrong, or seemed to.

All of that video over the years, and not a word from NASA. Now they at least admit that these orbs are a genuine mystery. Thank you so much for a scrap of truth at last!
See video
This very unusual video shows some lights in the sky being circled by a helicopter, which is the engine sound heard in the video. Very loud explosions also take place, of unknown origin.

This is a video of something in the night sky that is not a properly illuminated aircraft.
Korea appears to be having a UFO flap at this time.

Joseph Farrell's website has some interesting material. He'll be on Dreamland this weekend.

This would be an easy CGI effect to create, but Out There exists to take chances on videos like this. We really can't grade it. We've only had one or two YouTubers actually answer an inquiry, so we assume that most of them are hoaxers. but we've sent this one a message. If we get a reply, we'll let you know.

Very typical daylight video. Normally there would be a possibility that the object is close, and therefore a bird or an insect, but the videographer saw it with the naked eye, and the search of the skies that continues after it passes suggests that this is not a hoax.

This could be a bird or some other known object, but it seems too large and too fast. (The object appears in the clip of the train station at the end of the video.)
