Could they be replenishing their energy levels?
The complexity and advanced technology of extraterrestrial craft pretty much guarantees they either use an exotic form of energy or have the ability to absorb energy from their surroundings.
We’ve seen UFOs absorbing water from lakes, giant spaceships [probably recharging from] our Sun, and flying saucers diving straight into Earth’s volcanoes.
Should our assumption that UFOs are advanced alien ships be correct, they could just as well harness the thermal energy available inside our planet’s mantle as well as the sun’s electromagnetism and radiance.
And since we’re in the land of hypotheses, it wouldn’t be impossible for them to exploit the immense electrostatic discharges during a lightning storm.
This video is unique given the fact that it is filmed in decent enough quality and doesn’t seem to have been tampered with. If the UFOs are computer generated, whoever created the video did a good job.
The objects are not placed on top of the background. They are consistent with the resolution of the video and appear to be inside the clouds.
Another hint towards the authenticity of the video and the presence of the unidentified objects is the fact that they seem to interact with the environment.
If you watch closely, at 0:42-0:43, the objects seem to reflect the lightning strikes, suggesting they are reflective to some degree. The same effect can be observed multiple times throughout the video.
But the most intriguing aspect can be seen at 1:19, when a particularly bright lightning flash lights up the sky. For a split second, it looks like the strange array of lights isn’t a UFO fleet, but one enormous mother ship.
This object(s) at the center of this sighting is/are very similar to the infamous Phoenix Lights of 1997, both in structure and behavior. But while skeptics have long claimed that illumination flares were responsible for the Phoenix incident, the same explanation cannot be forced here.
Military exercises that require illumination flares wouldn’t take place during a storm and lightning strikes wouldn’t make them shine brighter.
Examination of the video suggests the presence of one large metallic UFO or a fleet of smaller flying saucers.
Here’s the video so you can see for yourself:
