There's nothing like a solid debunking to get my heart pumping.
UFOs over Denver are insects
Because if those are UFOs I’ll fight a xenomorph bare-handed. Those aren’t UFOs. Those are bugs. Insects. Insects flying around in front of the camera. Insects that can hover, change direction, zip away. Insects that look like blobs because they’re close to the camera, which was set to focus on infinity. Insects which were lit by the Sun so they flash a bit when they change direction.
And yes, I know: UFO means Unidentified Flying Object, and since no one could identify them, these are by definition UFOs. Except they aren’t. They’re insects.
I’ll note that perhaps not every object in that video is entomological. Some may be birds, and others small remote controlled planes (one in particular appears to move up, stall, then dive just like the RC planes I used to fly when I was in high school), but the one thing they aren’t is a mystery.
���On air, Heidi Hemmat, the reporter, talked to someone identified as “a former commercial pilot, instructor, and FAA accident prevention counselor” who was able to say those objects aren’t planes or helicopters … but he also says they’re not insects. I take exception to that. It sounds like he’s assuming they’re far away and therefore big, but we don’t know that. They could be close and small. In which case they’re entirely consistent with being insects.
Look, sometimes things are hard to figure out. Sometimes the evidence is ambiguous. But also sometimes the evidence is absolutely ridiculously overwhelmingly forehead-slappingly oh-my-God-this-is-so-obviously obvious. I’ll note the Rocky Mountain Paranormal Research Society agrees, too, and they do skeptical investigations like this all the time.
