Default Video 'shows UFO's flying over Turkey'

Fake? or amazing evidence of Alien existence?

A VIDEO that claims to show alien spacecraft has been described as the "most important images of a UFO ever filmed".
The vision was taken by 42-year-old night guard Yalcin Yalman in a compound in Turkey earlier this year

See report and video here......,00.html

Who knows, First Contact may be closer than we think!!

Those are irradiated geese glowing in the dark after passing over Iran and accidently flying over their "experimental" nuclear reactor. Those radioactive isotopes are nothing to trifle with, I tell you what.

The first clip looks just like the International Space Station passing overhead. I've seen it myself a number of times, and it drifts by slowly - yet faster than anything natural in the sky - and is quite bright and visible for a long time.

The second clip is horribly out of focus, and there're no external reference points - landmarks, the horizon, etc - to give us any idea of scale or movement. Sadly, that robs a lot of the film's credibility.

Third - harder to explain away as something mundane, though a man-made vehicle is a reasonable guess.

Fourth one - like the second, we can't see anything else to help us judge distance, size, or movement. Only the voice track telling us it's moving slowly, when he could simply be filming an unusual vehicle, building, or piece of machinery on the ground or water while shaking the camera slightly.

[too many more clips to comment on]

Now, I firmy believe there's life out among the stars - logic and science point so strongly in that direction - and there's every possibility we've had visits from other worlds before. But these video clips... too vague, blurry and ill-defined to be firmly convincing. Besides, when a tabloid like The Sun reports on something as "shocking truth", that's almost a guarantee of exaggeration, if not outright falsehood.

Look like old style Cylon

I belive in aliens, but have doubts about this footage.

Okay... so this one guy captures multiple sightings in his area... sort of like "Gulf Breeze."

I think it's a hoax, but a clever one. (That's the trouble of living in the age of photoshop, and video effects software... you can pretty much fake anything with just a little bit of talent...)
