Well here’s something you don’t see every day.
Video Description: Mysterious lights over Milwaukee 2/27/18 – Quick moving lights appeared over Milwaukee Tuesday morning and were captured live on TV from FOX6. Any ideas?
Looking through YouTube comments, there seem to be several plausible theories:
“This could only be Drones surely! they also don’t have contrails, if you look at the car lights in the bottom left you can see every moving light has a trail so that only means they’re let it, like a drone right?! they all have lights.”
“a swarm of mosquitos [sic] or gnats close to the camera illuminated by a light source, the trails are just camera artifacts”
“If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say a flock of seagulls. The trails are a compression issue, or an issue with shutter speed, etc. It’s nighttime so the trails are easily explainable as a camera issue, it also isn’t a high quality feed. White birds reflecting all those bright white lights down there. Milwaukee is next to a body of water, Seagulls are most likely.”
“Alien Bug-Birds Flying UFO’s & Shooting Fireworks.” (-Me.)
No idea. But one thing’s for sure…
UPDATE: Seagulls. Apparently the mysterious, streaking lights are just a flock of harmless birds.
