Not sure there are UFO battles taking place above our heads, but I’m also not sure that the lights and objects being videoed are simply bats, birds or satellites!
A San Diego-based UFO researcher named Ed Grimsley captured what one writer called “multiple unidentified flying objects” that were “saucer-shaped [and] appeared to hover in the sky and change direction before moving out of sight.”
The video [below] was taken April 30 with Grimsley’s organization, Skywatch using night-vision eqipment.
To the trained eye, however, this video appears to show something much more banal than a UFO battle.
“Night-vision optics trade low resolution for high sensitivity, and bright objects spill out into a circle of light that in no way reflects their actual angular size. So what looks like a large object may well just be a point of light,” Sheaffer said. “Many of the objects they’re seeing are birds or bats, or faint satellites in earth orbit. There’s nothing in the sky that a night vision device can see that a person can’t see with 10 x 50 binoculars — and with much better detail. So their belief that they’re seeing entire fleets of UFOs up in the sky simply means that they don’t understand how these devices work, and what they’re seeing.”
