A short video clip showing a formation of twelve white lights in the sky over St. Louis Park has emerged online.
The footage, which was uploaded by YouTube user Netzaid Vazquez Diaz on February 28th, was reportedly filmed at approximately 8 p.m. on the evening of February 10th of this year.

"I think [it] was a UFO [be]cause [it] was 10 below that night and the lights were too big and stay[ed] for more than 30 [minutes?] in the sky," Diaz wrote in the YouTube comments section.
The footage has since managed to attract quite a bit of attention with various channels and news outlets picking up the story.

While no definitive explanation has yet been found, some have suggested that the objects could be flares or perhaps even drones - although the latter seems unlikely.

As things stand, the sighting remains a total mystery.

Ahh, this may be the problem. You have seen the utter BS people post. Intelligent or not, we are highly fallible. They got it wrong.

Just as a non-expert I would expect to see a beam or a hint of a beam to some extent reaching to the lights. Were they in the right direction of a known source, etc..† And the casino lights are in a circular pattern unlike these. (and remember I am not even saying it is not spotlights) †

Here is a hint about light and seeing beams of light. Light beams cannot be seen from the side if they pass through a vacuum. Beams like corpuscular rays seen passing†through clouds are only visible because some of the light encounters particles in the air that cause the light rays to change course. The next part is the camera. It produces an image because it has a sensor that traps light. If a portion of the image is too weak to be detected by the camera then it does not appear. There are two factors that are likely to prevent the beams from appearing in the image: the air itself and the came... [More]

Itís extremely basic physics as to why you should not expect to see a beam of light. Not a hard concept to grasp. That is not non-expert. Wowsers.

Papameter is at 70% on the spotlight theory now.

You just need to add 29.9% - 30% at it would be reasonable.† Time to rejig the algorithm I think. Seems a bit off still!

not so fast at my club we had intelibeams and lasers that didnt show any beams until we pumped out some fog, ( before people fired up their smokes ) i have taken those lights outside and same thing, if conditions arent right no beam shows.

OK, Iíll add that to my knowledge-base. Papameter at 77% on the spotlight theory.
