Father-son shoot UFO video of unknown lights hovering overhead

A “floating UFO” was caught on video between 5 and 5:30 a.m. over Tarma, Peru, on June 17, 2015, according to YouTube poster Edison Avila La Madrid.

The video (seen above) shows five – sometimes six – white, round lights floating in the night sky that could be attached to the same object or could be floating independently.

The 15-minute, 38-second video is in Spanish, but the website, Inquisitr, stated that the video was shot by a Peruvian resident and his son after they spotted the lights floating over their home.

According to Inquisitr, “First one appears, then it disappears,” says the son. “Are they five? Or is it just a big one?” he wonders. “I am scared now. Do you think they know we are recording them? Please, don’t leave me.”

On the video, the father says he believes the lights are attached to “a larger spaceship” which would explain why the group of lights remains so still in the sky.

“It is still, completely still. It is like that one from Mexico,” he tells his son, according to Inquisitr. “What we are seeing is just the base of it.”

The father then says on the video that he has seen “things like this for 45 years.”

Some of the images in the video and the fact that the lights appear in sequence do indicate that the objects may be Chinese lanterns – the most common investigation outcome for groups of lights crossing the sky. See the Chinese Lantern video below.

  1. It isn’t a fleet of UFO’s. It is obviously a plane of some type. the position of the lights never changes, and the distance between them never changes. I’d guess a B-2 bomber, or some other US military plane.

I got a movie with this colours on the UFOs at that altitude above the Atlantic Ocean…a compass is needed wen we chase UFOs, and checking with the binoculars first, for some few this subject of UFOs doesn’t came from a new wave of pop culture on the 21 century…this is very serious, the planet have 4 permanent kind of beings living with protocols of security created with the USA shadow militar force, and it seems some gophers try to get in the spot light with debunks like this!?
