I downloaded and analyzed the following video from MUFON's UFO Stalker website. It was shot from the ground in New York City around 10pm eastern time on Monday, January 16, 2011.
When you watch the video at 3X speed, it appears the separate lights are actually from one large craft in the shape of an upside-down pyramid with lights emitting from each point. It appears there is at least one other smaller craft entering the vicinity of the pyramid about the time the shooter lowers the camera to walk to a different vantage point.
This is not a fake. This is happening. Our friends want us to know they are with us.
