Perfectly true. I watch them every night from my back yard and occasionally wave to the alien pilots. Unfortunately, night vision does not show colors so it's not as pretty as with the naked eye.

Hey Steve

I heard that broadcast too. What model do you have that allows you to see these things? What should I buy to enable me to see such things.

Just read this string and wanted to chime in...
I've used quite a few nightvision devices from my home 40 east of Las Vegas.
To the north is a military test range. With night vision goggles I'm able to clearly spot aircraft that my eyes alone can not detect.
Third generation NV by ITT is fantastic, and is used by the military.
Be prepared to spend some money though... $3000 on up.

I heard the same radio episode and was wondering if you could get away with using digital or gen 1 NVD to see UFO's. I don't own any device's yet but would like to for this reason. It would pretty much be the same a star gazing, so what ever NVD people use to see the stars better would get the job done I suppose.

Video in the daytime. Slow motion exposes them

A number of years back I shot some video of a Strange cloud forming in the summer evening.
When playing the video back in slow motion (to prolong the view) I noticed these high speed
specks moving across the cloud. Lots of them.

Then I started actively looking for these flyers.

One of the most active videos is at
(download this original file and check out the 9+ flight sequences in this short 3 minute clip

The following shows the flight paths frame by frame (30 per second) with red hilight and the time shown. These
things move very fast and erratic.
