Multiple witnesses reported seeing a multicolored object hovering over the city on August 30th.

The sightings created a significant buzz on Twitter with residents informing one another of the spectacle and others emerging from their homes to get a good look at it. The object was described as being comprised of red, green and white flashing lights in the formation of a triangle.

Some skeptics have argued that the object could have been a low-flying aircraft, however the sighting was at least unusual enough to have mystified most of those who saw it on the night.

"Several people reported to Twitter that they saw a group of lights forming a triangular shape and flashing green, red and white in the night sky above Izumi city in Osaka Prefecture."

Nothing on youtube. That makes me suspicious. Everyone owning a camera phone over there, someone would have caught it. I would bet money someone uploaded something on mixi ,but I haven't looked . When I have a few hours to plod thru the blogs there,I will take a look . The have their own social networks .mixi and ameoba .They upload their stuff on there a lot .

one of my sceptic friends says, why do (sic.) they fly around with thier headlights on? Hello! i'm over here??? Maybe these UFO's are not Aliens? Maybe those are not "Headlights"? Maybe there is no 'motive' what-so-ever? If we answered "true" to those questions all we are left with is a really wierd atmospheric phenomena that needs to be studied more.

the question was asked why fly around with their lights on? why let themselves be seen yet not be seen. the answer is to get humanity ready for whatever happens next if everyone is curious enough they won't be taking potshots ( with whatever comes to hand) at the ships when they land. At least that is the one logical answer that comes to mind for me.
