What a great and fun thread
A lot of interesting comments.
I'll try to add my two cents.
I found this interesting youtube analysis that speculates the observations could be caused by some phenomena in the 4th dimension we are seeing a projection of in the 3rd dimension.
So what we are seeing could possibly not be a complete view of what is going on.
I generally like Fran's videos, but I think she's missed the mark on this one. Before there is a need for such an exotic explanation, we must determine that the observations warrant such an explanation because they can't be explained any other way. I have yet to see any UAP case in which this is true.
