I don't see a minute of video here but within the limits of the
apalling compression quality it does appear that the objects do
not change relative positions. It would be more interesting if
they did. Frankly, this could be anything - a handful of beads
thrown on a carpet, a video panned across a still photo of a
stream of bubbles in someone's fishtank (or balloons) - or even
a fleet of UFOs.

Eight days ago I suggested that to reach a conclusion you needed
to find accurate angular measures of the images and of the field
of view in relation to the camera specs, the true angular rate
of the objects in relation to "white clouds" that were said to
be visible (I don't see any reference points whatever here and
it's impossible to subtract evident panning motion - the
individual images are far too unclear to reveal possible motion
blur that might at least offer a clue) and at least some basic
weather data for the time and place (assuming these can be
verified). This was met by the customary silence. Maybe such
work is published somewhere in Spanish, but on this list no one
has even suggested that such data might be available, let alone
actually investigated. James is right. We can only conclude in
the absence of data that there is as yet no substantial case to
