A bug was the first thing that came to mind. But when that plane expert came on and said that he couldn't identify it, I was like, "Wow this is definitely an extraterrestrial aircraft". Ha someone has to debunk this quick because like boonyarc said, "winter is coming and bug activity will drop by some measure as a result."

So..... UFO activity on videos taken in Colorado is directly proportional to how many insects are out and about??

Ergo.... INSECTS ARE ALIENS!!! RUN!!!

Seems the hype over this Denver sighting is not going away.
CNN is pushing the story too.
It's just the same coverage.  Bugs getting a lot of exposure.

I'm going to head out possibly tomorrow or the next day to check this out. I'm going to bring a number of Camera's just to be thorough. What would everyone want me to do as far as tests etc. I know what I normally would do, but this is a community thing. It'd be really cool to be able to stream my investigation for everyone and have everyone chip in, in real time. I'm pretty sure the answer to this has been said here already, but I figure we should follow through and give this "incident" due course.

Let me know!

Could that be because the banal explanations do not really wash?

Well, it might if actual CNN reporters had given it time.
But in this case it's just an automatic feed into CNN's website.  When one of their "affiliates" has a story that gets a certain number "hits" it's automatically linked to the CNN website.  It's "brainless" reporting.

I'm still surprised that the still images that you posted showing a capsule shape, and mine a conical shape didn't convince you that it was something unexplainable.

Then I guess we're even because I'm still surprised that you didn't see capsule shaped insects in those videos I posted.

I don't suppose you have the kind of equipment used in footage like this?



It would be cool to have that side by side with normal video.

Sorry if this is a repost, didn't want to trudge through the entire thread.

Here's a CNN report on it:

Hmmm you only had to trudge a few posts up on this page.

Your preconceived apology was in order ;)
