5 small twinkling jumping white lights were seen over the city of Nut (Limburg region).

An eyewitness writes:

It was a cluster of about 5 flickering white-red lights. The lights were dimmer than the surrounding stars. It was a clear sky. However, to see them, you had to look closely. The lights moved around each other like a group of fireflies. I watched him for about 30 seconds and came back. The lights remained in one place. It was too far away for the phone camera.

Original news

5 kleine flikkerende springende witte lichten

NUTH, LB — Het was een kluster van ongeveer 5 flikkerende wit-rode lichten. De lichtjes waren zwakker dan de omringende sterren. Het was een heldere hemel. Toch moest je goed kijken om ze te zien. De lichtjes bewogen rondom elkaar, net als een groep van vuurvliegjes zou doen. Heb er ongeveer 30 seconden na gekeken toen weer naar binnen gegaan. De lichten bleven wel op 1 plek hangen. Het was te ver weg voor de camera van de telefoon om te zien.

Beetles and other insects

Flying insects in photos and videos can be mistaken for UFOs.

Shooting can take place in the daytime or in the evening. When moving, the outlines of the insect can be both blurred and clear. Depending on this, dark spots or spots of bizarre shapes can be taken for UFOs. The video shows UFOs hovering in the sky, flying in a straight line or moving along a complex trajectory (for example, shooting May bugs near a tree against the background of the evening sky). Insects can be mistaken for UFOs by accident, or given out intentionally. At night, they can be highlighted by a flash.

Subject when shooting with flash or backlight

Flash reflection on objects and small living beings, which are out of focus at the moment of photographing.


In connection with the peculiarities of the bird in the photo you can capture the moment when a normal bird will resemble the shape of a "classic" UFO.
