Hi Everyone!

I personally cannot see what all the excitement is about.

Unlike the Chilean jets whose sizes are known and thus their
speed can easily be determined, there is no way to precisely
calculate the speed of the UFO(s) from this single video alone.

The UFO would indeed be moving 4,000 or even 6,000 mph if we
assume that the UFO was at least as big as the Chilean jets and
equally as far away but the UFO in this video could just as
easily be explained as one or more small birds flying hundreds
of times slower and much closer to the spectators.

The fact that no sonic boom was heard and the motion of the UFO
through the sky was just as erratic as a bird in flight (nearly
crashing to the ground at the 39 second mark into the video!), I
think the obvious and simplest explanation that this UFO was a
bird is mostly likely the correct one, especially since birds in
flight are not that uncommon, including at airshows, and are
often unnoticed at the time pictures or videos are taken.

[Perhaps a re-read of Leslie's report, in which she writes that
 there were seven videos, recorded and analysed but not yet
 released, might clarify?]
