UFOs Spotted in Downtown Fort Lauderdale Last Week (Video)
At 8:35 p.m. in Cape Coral: an adult male called NURC "having witnessed an estimated 20-25 orange balls of light in the night sky."
At 8:45 p.m. in Palm Beach Gardens: an adult male witnessed "6 orange orbs traveling west to east across the northern sky."
At 9:30 p.m. from Fort Myers: There was a report of a "bright orange-ish reddish light illuminating from very bright to dim and repeats the process."
At 10 p.m. in Vero Beach: There was a report of "an orb shaped white object" first thought to be a satellite since it moved across the sky from west to east. It would then stop directly overhead, move very fast to the east, and then back a few times.
At 10:20 p.m. in Lakeland: There was a report of a "silent, strong pyramid form with goldfish orange-ish lights."
At 10:45 p.m. in Sunrise: A person and their mother "saw three orange fireball UFOs in the sky. Two of the fireballs dimmed and disappeared except for a small red light, while the third stayed lit."
At 10:51 p.m. in Jupiter: a "low altitude red glowing sphere" was spotted 500 feet overhead. It traveled from west to east at a rate of speed over 100 mph.
Brian Welch works at the Buehler Planetarium. He believes life exists outside our planet. However, he seriously doubts what Wareham and the seven people reported is actually proof of intelligent life. While he doesn't think the video we have was doctored (it would be a helluva lot more exciting if it were), he knows a lot of controversy about UFO sightings stem from people trying to cause controversy with doctored videos on YouTube.
"I cannot comment on the eyewitness statements posted on the NUFORC website," Welch tells New Times. " Without some kind of visual documentation of the event, I would only be guessing at what people may have seen. There are many objects that could qualify as an orange orb: Chinese candle lanterns, helium balloons, helicopter lights, airplane lights, and many other objects can test our perception and fool our eyes."
After watching the video, Welch is pretty certain it isn't a UFO. "I would guess the object in the video is actually the bright star, Sirius, or the planet Jupiter. The object is just above the building. That tells me the object isn't too high in the sky. Both Sirius and Jupiter fit that placement in the sky around 8 p.m.."
Of course, who knows what the other 24 items reported on the NUFORC website by seven people were...
