The Burlington Vortex UFOs

To recap: last Saturday I attended the Burlington Vortex Conference. I spent the day listening to presentations by UFO superstars and chatting with all sorts of interesting people. That night I joined about 30 other pilgrims on the "Haunted Woods Tour" to experience the Vortex first-hand. As far as I could tell, the Vortex never actually showed up, but what did show up was even more interesting...

At about 10:30 pm, the entire group of 30 stood in the woods and watched a flaming, flickering, brilliant orange light approach from the east, about a mile up in the sky, then slow to a stop over us and flicker out. A moment later a second blazing orange light repeated the pattern, moving towards us slowly and silently from the east, only to stop and blink out overhead.

Like a good Lone Wolf UFO Field Investigator, I was expecting the unexpected, I had predicted the unpredictable, I was prepared for the unpreparable. for. I was ready. I pulled out my Flip video camera and recorded the whole thing in HD.

You'll see that the images of the two UFOs aren't that striking -- they're little orange lights in a big, black sky -- but the audio is fun, because you can feel the excitement and appreciation. For those three brief minutes that we all shared our UFO sighting, we 30 were the human race in its entirety, and I loved every last one of us.

Here, then, is the video....
