  • The debunker was not one in this episode.

    Ted, a usual debunker had a change of heart in this episode of UFO Hunters. He and a buddy analyzed video footage of 'UFO sitings' in Illinois. Yes, the place is known to have airplanes and flares were said to be the cause. But the people around that area know regulation aircraft and it should not fly directly over their houses, stop in mid flight, or be that big. The lights seen were analyzed and moved in sequence, showing that they were connected to a triangular framework. A regulation 'copter flew past this 'UFO' at one point in the video and that helped Ted and his buddy gauge the size of the triangle. Apparently they said it was bigger than any of our aircraft. The pilot of the 'copter said he did not recognize the craft he was flying past. As for the flares, officials will say anything just so people won't flare up. People want an answer. Most times, one that is other than 'UFO'. The flares were tested and did not hold the same formation the red lights did.
