5 UFO Videos That Take a Sane Look at Flying Objects


When it comes to Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) there is definitely no shortage of video “evidence.” Much of this so-called evidence is nothing more than hoaxers flexing their CGI skills.

In cases where hoaxers are not involved, the videos are often taken by some other not-so-credible witness. There are other cases where videos are labeled as “proof of UFOs”, but they are obvious misidentifications or so blurry/hazy that who knows what is being captured by the video.

However, amongst all of the bogus UFO videos out there, there are some that actually take a sane look at these UFOs Below are just a few examples that take a serious look at UFOs.

5 Videos on UFOs

Michio Kaku-UFO’s Real-Evidence Hard To Dismiss

If you are not familiar with Professor Michio Kaku, Author of Physics of the Impossible and Professor of Physics at City University of New York, he is probably one of the more credible advocates for the UFO theory.

In the video below, he contends that about 5% of the sightings out there can truly be classified as “unidentified”.

However, just because they can be classified as UFOs does not provide the definitive proof that is needed to prove that life on other planets exist.

UFO Coverup Fmr. Sen. Mike Gravel Speaks Out

This past May (2013), Paradigm Research paid several former senators to hold a mock hearing to discuss all of the UFO evidence available in an attempt to pressure the current Senate to hold a UFO hearing of its own.

In the video below, Former Senator Mike Gravel discusses the mock hearing and what it could mean for the future of UFO research and government transparency on the matter.

Though Gravel believes that the subject of UFOs is “the most significant subject in our civilization”, he doubts that the hearing will have any affect on UFO transparency in the federal government.

Karl Pflock Explains the Aztec UFO Hoax

Probably the most famous UFO crash story is the Roswell incident; however, it was not the only UFO story to come out of the U.S. and circle the globe. Interestingly enough it was not even the only UFO story to come out of New Mexico and circle the globe.

In 1948, a UFO crash was reported near Aztec, New Mexico. Author Frank Scully wrote of the crash and the witnesses’ accounts in his book Behind Flying Saucers.

However, all of it was just an elaborate hoax. The big question is did Frank Scully know it was a hoax. In the video, Karl Pflock gives an historical account of what happened.

Dr. Eric Davis Why NASA Scientists Hesitate on UFO Research

Dr. Eric Davis, physicist and UFO advocate, contends that scientists shy away from the subject because the military has the monopoly on UFO research. According to Davis, the study of UFOs falls under a communication category; a category that the government keeps “under its wing”.

Nevertheless, the culture of UFO research maybe changing as more and more scientists, such as Davis and Kaku, begin openly discussing the subject. Davis’s opinion differs from Kaku’s in that he feels the presence of UFOs are proof alien life. “UFOs are real phenomena. They are artificial objects under intelligent control. They’re definitely the craft of a supremely advanced technology.”

Michael Shermer: Why People Believe Weird Things

Michael Shermer, Director of the Skeptics Society and the publisher of Skeptic Magazine, takes a different approach to the UFO subject. Obviously, being a skeptic, he is a nonbeliever, but he advocates a sane and level-headed approach to the subject.

“In all cases we have to ask, what is the more likely explanation and before we say something is out of this world, we should first make sure that it is not in this world.”

Sorting the Credible from the Nonsense

When it comes to UFOs and UFO evidence, there is plenty of bunk out there.

However, if you take the time to look, there are plenty of videos that take a sane look at subject. Its just up to you to go out and find them.

  • It’s disappointing that these “sane” videos use a load of hoaxed or identified “UFO” images. (I didn’t watch the Shermer video — he doesn’t know anything about the subject.)

  • Hi Terry. Take a peak at the Shermer video. He makes a pretty valid point in that when we study an subject we have to take the “hits” and the “misses” into consideration. He also points out how easy it is to Hoax a UFO video/photo.

  • Wow, he tried to jam all the details of the whole book into a mere 14 minutes. He should have selected a few examples to demonstrate his point.

    His research is a mile wide and an inch deep. He’s not someone to cite for UFO skepticism.

  • To his defense, I challenged Dennis to come up with the “most sane” UFO videos in the field – and that he did. Not an easy task in this field as I’m sure you know. I didn’t like seeing Eric Davis on the list, to be honest, but of all the crazy material out there, it is at least more sane…. I challenge you to find anything better out there. 🙂

  • Hi Guys. The compilation here including Davis, was to prove that sane videos do exist and that those videos can be found across the spectrum from the hardcore believers (Davis) to hardcore skeptics (Shermer) to the open minded scientist (Kaku). Not every video has to be of a “flying saucer” shot by a “local authority” to be considered sane. As Terry stated on another article, Ufology does not have its proverbial smoking gun; Ufology’s equivalent of the Patterson–Gimlin film.

    Ufology is filled with much more hoax “evidence” than any other field of (what i like to call) alternative subject matter. I could have posted 100s of “real UFO” videos, but they are all the same… grainy, indiscernible, and some person claiming to have never seen it before. On the other hand, I could have post 100s of videos on why UFOs are not real and the believers are stupid for believing in them. Yet, those videos are all them same as well.

    However, every video posted here involves intelligent educated individuals and their stance on the subject matter. Each video makes a valid point that is tough to contest:
    Kaku – There are things out there no one can identify.
    Pflock – hoaxes are not only prevalent but can easily circle the globe as fact.
    Davis – Scientists are reluctant to openly research UFOs for fear of stigma.
    Gravel – the politicians need to come clean with what they know, but wont.
    Shermer – Look at the subject from all sides, the “hits and the misses.”

    Its these points that should be guidelines in Ufology; not jumping on every “OMG, what is that” video that hits youtube.
