    Thanks for the URL.

    Does anyone recall last year(sometime) the footage the Mexican government(?) released re: objects they picked up on sensors?

    It wasn't regular light, I believe it was infrared?

    I guess we aren't alone after all. :crying:
  4. If you're referring to the lights their Air Force saw:

    The "rest of the story" is this, according to were flying further north than usual, and when they returned to base, they processed the film that they shoot during their training missions. It was only then that the "lights" were seen, on the photographs, but the tale grew (like a fish story) in the telling...until (as the story grew) the lights were chasing the planes, high ranking officials (that actually were nowhere near that part of the country) swore they saw the lights with their own eyes...etc, etc.

    UFO debunkers plotted the aircraft's positions, then looked at possible sources. Eventually, the truth was that a string of offshore oil platforms was responsible for the lights. The debunkers took photos of the platforms from the position of the planes, and the lights corresponded exactly to the pictures the pilots had taken.

    Ping-pong ball!

    (Oh, and when I first read your post I thought, "Whats an ufo?" I was reading it like a word.)
  6. Heh, neato torpedo. I will still believe there is an explanation however.
    I still wanna see some excellent vids of that craft land in Vegas they talk about. How old is this vid? Is it supposed to be this week, or next?
  7. I dont know how old this video is to be honest with you guys, and i really dont believe it but i dont have anything to base that on.

  8. No worries. It still makes for light hearted entertaining conversation. :cool:
  9. Just found a bit more on this. It was done May 27th.

    Second story.

    Looks like we need some weapons boys. :crying:
  11. That was an interesting video, I'm interested in what will happen between June 1st and July 15th. Although I am almost positive that nothing will come of it, I will still check it out.
