It is not flares. I've seen many flares, and they don't hang in the air at the same altitude for almost a minute and then rise in altitude out of view.

 

It's also not 4 helicopters. The movement is completely wrong, and the lights don't change when the helicopter would have rotated to change direction and altitude.

 

umm yes, flares can hover and then fly upwards, I've seen it several times. and it could very well be helicopters. they could move like this.

I think those are emergency flares, and they floating because the fire's hot air going upward and this hot air make them float.

Certainly an interesting video! I initially thought "flares" until they just suddenly shot upwards and vanished. Now I'm not sure what to think!

Interesting, because that's counter intuitive in both cases.

 

Please explain how flares can remain at the same altitude for 60 seconds, and then rise in altitude and out of view. Also, can you show any examples of when this happens on video?

 

The lights immediately begin rising in altitude and moving at an almost 45 degree angle at the same time. This happens with three of them, and the light doesn't waver when they begin their motion. Helicopters typically can't go from hover to rising in altitude immediately in any direction but straight up. The acceleration is also very quick for a helicopter to achieve immediately from hover.

 

If it was a helicopter with a search light, why doesn't the light waver? Even if it was some very advanced helicopter, the light would waver or disappear as the helicopter rotated to achieve that very fast acceleration in a new direction rising in altitude. Are you suggesting that it's a helicopter with an omnidirectional search light? Because, that would be extremely odd as well.

 

I'm certainly not saying it's aliens, but it's not flares or helicopters either.

Notice how as the number of HD cameras become more and more common, the less and less UFO sightings there are. 

 

I know right. Also, have you noticed how more people are being reported missing the more HD cameras are becoming more and more common?

 

It can only mean one thing. Alien abductions are real and they're becoming more frequent to stop footage being leaked to the public.

 

Also, the NSA is using alien technology so they can check for actual alien footage and remove it from the internet in real time.

Hum

thing is why would the alien ships glow? its kind of like ooo look at me but we want to be covert looking at this ship lets put all the lights on.

It is the electromagnetic field around the craft, which interacts with the atmosphere.

 

A bit like St. Elmo's fire, but much more intense. ;) The light is an unintended side-effect.

Heat from the fire or the flare can make them rise very fast very suddenly. especially in cold air like at sea. wind may also be a factor here. also the rise may be deceptive due to distance and angle. 

 

as for helicopters. umm no, helicopters can transfer form hover to straight or angular rise just fine, some types better than others. at the distance you wouldn't see any vibrations anyway. and they wouldn't be omni directional, they could be on the other side of the ship, lighting up the ship. 

 

either way I'd go with either flares or fake on this anyway.  They act like any number of flares you see on a cold new years here. last year there was a flare that actually rose up past the clouds in the cold.

are those tiny half inch aliens inside those tiny little "crafts" which have electro magnetic fields with magical properties no other EM field on earth display ?

Helicopters and flares are almost as likely as aliens :)

The ship is a U.S. Navy refueling and supply ship.  They carry two helos for transfering supplies from ship to ship.  When doing night refueling in a noncombat mode they will send up star fire rounds to light up the night to make it easier to do operations.  They can also do the operations without the star fire rounds. Also depending on what class of vessels they are refueling that vessels could also have several helos assigned for combat oresupply perations.

the best part of UFO's is the fact that they don't inherently mean alien. its just Unidentified. So its probably just a helicopter or something looking at the boatt :p

The best part of UFO stories, is people like you making ridiculous theories

Yup, was thinking the same thing, in this day and age, these 'recorded sightings' are the best they can do?

umm no they're not, and what are you supposed to prove with random videos of flares and helicopters ?

The first video shows the normal operation of an emergency flare (the parachute flare that is used most at sea).

The second video shows how helicopters operate, going from hover to motion.

The third shows what it looks like when a searchlight is on a helicopter in motion.

Can you provide any video of a helicopter going from hover into an immediate 45 degree climb that would be anywhere close to what is seen on the video of the lights?

Can you provide video of a flare that has held a steady altitude and position for 60 seconds then abruptly climbing into the clouds?

Aliens are an extreme scenario, as are flares and helicopters given the behavior of the lights.

Look at how steady the lights are for a long period, and when each rises up the others stay perfectly still. The rate at which the lights rise could not have been caused by wind, unless there were hurricane like gusts. Since all of the other "flares" stay still, that would take laser like gusts of wind to cause only one of the flares to literally shoot up hundreds of feet in altitude in just a couple seconds.

 

You also must remember that what you're looking at is probably 2-5 miles out at sea. Those lights are moving really fast, and cover a lot sky in very short amount of time.

 

The only plausible explanation of the behavior of the lights is the one given in the article... Although it explains the behavior well, it's still pretty unlikely, but definitely more possible than aliens, flares, or helicopters,

 

Dantonio refers to a new radar-evading military fighter jet -- the F-35 -- with the capability of hovering like a helicopter. The F-35 is currently undergoing successful tests.

 

"This could be one of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter wings doing training over the ocean where the afterburner is allowed," Dantonio suggested.

 

"As the first one peels off to the lower right, the aspect ratio of its circular exhaust and afterburner shape changes with respect to the camera and gradually fades away. Similarly, the others -- except for one -- follow suit. So, to me, this looks exactly like a tactical training mission which happened to be seen over a ship that looks like its engines were being cycled up."

 

Dantonio is also convinced the video doesn't show flares in the sky.

 

"Although the initial video event shows something that looks like flares, the subsequent behavior does not match the expected behavior," he said. "Parachute flares would not appear to hang in the sky like this unless they were quite far away, perhaps 30-plus miles away when seen."

You do know the light in the third video shows up exactly like in the OP and it on,y goes away when the helicopter flies away.

And showing one video of something not doing something isn't proof it doesn't do it. I've seen helicopters do crazy maneuvers like this, and I've see flares do it, that doesn't mean I filmed it, I have better thing to film on news years even than a flare rising into the clouds.

You're also making some logical fallacies, like assuming the "helicopters" are hovering. Since you only see the light and they're so far away you don't know that. They may be moving at high speed towards the camera.

But again, flares rising from heat and wind seems like a much more likely scenario. Certainly many times more likely than fantasy aliens visiting in fantasy craft that for some magical reason happen to be glowing and apparently super tiny. Especially considering the explanation if what ship it is in the post above.

Also the F35 certainly can't translate from hover to speed that fast. And it wouldn't be glowing.and if it was you would know, since firstly you would see the afterburner very clearly, and the F 35 is one of the noisiest jets to date. Had that been and F16 you would have heard it clearly, and F35 you would definitely have heard.

What a great video. I guess it could be as much as a fake as a real one. As a people, we are pretty arrogant thinking we know all about the universe. We have only been scratching the surface for a few hundred years. Give it a thousand years.

The only thing arrogant would be to jump to a other worldly conclusion bases on a crappy unclear video.

Hugh? Are you implying I meant that? They could have been flares for all I know, however, it was probably faked.

That video sucked.  Enough of the footage that is blurry or taken from 4 light years away...speculation based on terrible evidence is boring.

Stick around this forum section for a while, aliens is a popular conclusion for some.

      YouTube plans to curb content promoting harmful conspiracy theories
      by Usama Jawad

      Many social media platforms have been cracking down on content which promotes harmful conspiracy theories. In July, Twitter banned 7,000 accounts associated with the QAnon conspiracy group. Just a few days ago, Facebook also banned accounts representing QAnon across all its platforms. Just recently, YouTube stated that it would be removing content containing misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines as well as videos linking the pandemic to 5G technology.

      Now, YouTube has again announced similar initiatives, but in a slightly broader context rather than targeting QAnon or misinformation about COVID-19 alone.



      The company says that moving forward, it will be removing all hateful and harmful conspiracy theory videos that are being used to target individuals and groups, as well as promote and justify real-world violence. To be clear, this is not the first time the company has taken such an initiative. Over the past couple of years, it has updated its recommendation algorithms to reduce the visibility of such content from its search and discovery systems, an effort which resulted in up to 80% drops in views for QAnon content. It has also banned hundreds of channels and removed thousands of videos promoting this type of content under its existing policies.

      The firm went on to say that:

      Given the tricky nature of the situation as well as tactics employed by conspiracy theory groups to subvert YouTube's regulations, the company says that it will keep updating its policies accordingly to fight this threat.

      YouTube Music is available now on the Apple Watch
      by Paul Hill

      Google has announced that its music service, YouTube Music, is now available for consumers with Apple Watch devices. The new Apple Watch app will allow people to browse their music collections, control playback, and select casting options.

      YouTube Music comes with a fairly simple interface and allows users to access their library which includes: last played, downloads, playlists, albums, and more. In another screenshot, Google shows off the music controls which consist of a pause option, skip forward, skip backwards, a thumbs up, and an option to cast the song over to a compatible device. These controls can be accessed through the YouTube Music ‘complication’ that’s displayed on the watch face.

      The Apple Watch is just the latest device where YouTube Music has been made available. On Monday, the firm introduced new features on smart TVs and Android TV OS devices. Google has also been busy over the summer introducing new YouTube Music features to a range of other devices.

      In order to use YouTube Music on Apple Watch, you’ll need to have the latest YouTube Music app, be a YouTube Premium or YouTube Premium Music subscriber, have an iPhone, and an Apple Watch Series 3 or above running watchOS 6 or newer. Google said that wearOS users should stay tuned going forward for additional updates on the service’s availability on that platform.

      YouTube will remove videos containing misinformation around COVID-19 vaccines
      by Jay Bonggolto

      YouTube is clamping down on videos shared on the platform that attempt to spread false information about COVID-19 vaccines. The service said it is banning clips that run counter to vaccine information from health authorities such as the World Health Organization and local health agencies.

      The ban applies to videos claiming that a COVID-19 vaccine will kill someone or make people infertile. YouTube will also remove videos saying that those who get vaccinated will have microchips implanted in them. That said, the video-sharing site won't block content on general discussions about those vaccines.

      In April, YouTube introduced measures to crack down on content linking COVID-19 to 5G. It's part of the service's broader effort to rid its platform of coronavirus-related misinformation. Interestingly, the move comes hard on the heels of Facebook's announcement for a new policy that will ban ads that discourage vaccination.

      YouTube plans to introduce additional steps in the next few weeks that will give more prominence to authoritative vaccine information on its platform. Since February of this year, it has stamped out more than 200,000 videos containing false information about the pandemic. With the increasing proliferation of misinformation both on social media and video sharing sites, it's interesting to see how YouTube's latest step will help in the fight against this type of activity.

      Google wants to turn YouTube into a shopping platform in a new test
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Google is trying to take on e-commerce giants Amazon and Alibaba with its new experiment that aims to make YouTube a shopping destination online. A YouTube representative confirmed the new test to Bloomberg.

      Citing sources privy to Google's plans, the news website reported today that some content creators on the platform have been recently asked to tag products that appeared on their videos. Google will then link these pieces of information to its analytics and shopping tools in order to develop an e-commerce catalog where users can select and directly buy products.

      Creators will have total discretion over what products appear on their clips. Google is also making it easier to directly sell through YouTube by integrating that platform with e-commerce website Shopify. It's not clear, though, how YouTube will make money from the products sold on the service. Bloomberg noted that YouTube is offering subscriptions for creators and taking a 30% tax from their subscription fees.

      The new experiment could give a boost to Google's online shopping business. In May of last year, the search giant was testing showing product recommendations along with their prices under YouTube videos. The links would then bring users to a Google Express page for checkout. That said, there's no word on when Google will widely roll out the new shopping feature in YouTube.
