Video! Awkward, UFO'S Turn Out To Be Insects

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Strange objects caught on camera flying over the city and nobody can explain it. We first learned about these sightings when a metro area man, who does not want to be identified, brought us his home video. He captured the images on his digital camera from a hilltop in Federal Heights looking south toward downtown Denver. ... The strangest part is they are flying too fast to see with the naked eye, but when we slowed down the video, several UFOs appear."



What are those mysterious objects in the sky? Is it a plane? A bird? Superman? A UFO?

According to some experts the most likely explanation is a bug or an insect.

"Assuming that the TV station is not being pranked by the anonymous cameraman, it`s not difficult to see how the insects could fool people. It`s not necessarily that anyone is stupid or gullible; instead it`s an optical illusion created by the camera representing a three-dimensional object in two dimensions."

When we are kids we love to believe in fantastical creatures like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, when we become adults cling to our belief in magic, and we imagine that strange lights in the sky are UFO`s.

Believe me; it`s more likely that a bug will crawl up your arse, than you will be a victim of an alien anal probe.

If you think you saw a UFO the explanation lies at the bottom of a bottle of booze or in the empty space between your ears.
