Flares do come to mind, but with paraflares you'd see them going up (small contrail as well as a fireworks like effect of them being show upwards). I've used countless of them, as well as the ones dropped from an aircraft.

These *could* be ones being dropped from an airplane, but those suckers are BRIGHT, and the cameraman should have been able to see the plane with ease.

I think the 3 popping up instantly is pretty interesting. I've never seen flares that coordinated.

Very interesting to say the least, but the only other alternative to a UFO is the flare suggestion.

Looks like cars lights to me in the fog.  Could be a road there, you can't see it with all the fog.  At one point , if you look close you can see two lights side by side like headlights.

Concur, these are flares.

The comment on Fog by jimbur got me thinking... I don't see fog, but I do see Clouds.

Looks like these are flares dropping out of the cloud deck. You can't see the "pop" because it happened in/above the clouds. Probably dropped by airplanes, also concealed by the clouds.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Probably not a flare then. :tu:

The article also says:


Dan also pointed out the realistic manner in which the UFO-orbs seem to "diminish in brightness and size as they pass behind the tree, lampposts and bushes.


Which also seems to indicate flares.

In this instance. could this be countered by parallax error? The viewing angle of the camera seems somewhat shallow.

The night sky can be very confusing.  I was flying in the Caribbean at night as part of a Navy exercise.  It was  pitch black, not even star light due to an overcast layer.  We were at 11k feet and had lost sight of my wingman and suddenly saw two bright flames erupt at two o'clock, 30 degrees low and heading down.  The attack had started and my first thought was my wing had hit afterburners for the fight but had become disoriented and was heading for the deck. I hit the radio and no one was in burner and he flashed strobes so we were back in support.

Afterwards I realized that what I had seen was a meteor breaking up upon reentry.  When I saw it, it looked just like Tomcat afterburners at night.  I had 1,400+ hours in navy fighters at the time, flying all over the world and had been in combat, yet was fooled by a natural phenomenon.  The boys gave me heat, of course, but it was an eye-opener for this old dog.

I figured it out because you see meteors when you fly in empty places (over the ocean) at night but this was one splitting up in the middle of our operating area. One in a billion yet there it was.  I In other words, even the pros get fooled.  I have seen things I can't explain to this day but always default to the more "earthbound" explanation.

Swamp gas

Seeming as you like the term so much, you might as well learn something about it hey.




An actual picture for you

Posted Image

This swamp gas was lit by a match from an icy lake, according to the photographer, no image manipulation was used here.

Posted Image




In late March 1966, in Michigan, two days of mass UFO sightings were reported, and received significant publicity. After studying the reports, Hynek offered a provisional hypothesis for some of the sightings: a few of about 100 witnesses had mistaken swamp gas for something more spectacular. At the press conference where he made his announcement, Hynek repeatedly and strenuously made the qualification that swamp gas was a plausible explanation for only a portion of the Michigan UFO reports, and certainly not for UFO reports in general. But much to his chagrin, Hynek's qualifications were largely overlooked, and the words "swamp gas" were repeated ad infinitum in relation to UFO reports. The explanation was subject to national derision.

WOW!

Impressive! Thank you fort sharing that one, I doubt many have such an experience, you might have got a hard time, but confusion in that situation seems pretty valid, if not mandatory!

   "123 flares set off for titanic celebrations"





Flares mark end of Titanic 100 commemorations

Monday, December 17, 2012
By Olivia Kelleher
Flares were fired off the Cork coast to mark the end of year-long centenary commemorations of the sinking of the Titanic.
The flares were set off from Cobh towards where the Titanic had anchored in Cork Harbour as part of a poignant closing ceremony on Saturday.

Hendrick Verwey, the chairman of Cobh Tourism, said it had been a “momentous year” for the town.

“We remembered all the people who died in a very special way and in a very unique way. People came to Cobh, and people are still coming to Cobh because it was Titanic’s last port of call. Cobh has an amazing history. We have the anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania in a couple of years.”
