Video: Utah UFO looks like ‘school of birds’

The Utah arm of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) is analyzing video shot by an Ogden witness who captured multiple orbs “moving like a school of fish or birds” across the sky, according to testimony in Case 56393 from MUFON witness database.

The witness was outside watching the moon about 9 p.m. on May 15, 2014, when movement was noticed in the sky that first appeared to be a drone.

The witness uploaded one video with the MUFON report, which was filed on May 18, 2014. The video is currently being analyzed.

  1. The ‘school of fish/flock of birds/whatever’ aren’t climbing up; they’re falling down. He has the camera upside down. At 1:56 there is a clear unambiguous shot of the Big Dipper and it is right-side up. The Big Dipper at this date and time is upside down. When the Big Dipper is right-side up it is only a dozen degrees above the horizon and the awning of his house is at the same elevation as the Big Dipper and he is standing almost directly underneath the awning. At 5:08 the awning comes into view and it is upside down.

  2. I’ve. witnessed similar objects in Lehi (Utah). They seem to follow a set pattern down here…North to South. My son suggested it could be radiation waves?…not sure myself. They don’t change course and seem to maintain same size and flight pattern. Witnessed then without camera, naked eye. On this end – looks like a white-ish, curved line, no lights. Did not track intervals. Cheers…
