UFOs are often spotted in the night sky, but it’s not every day that they appear to be dancing.
This lengthy clip, purportedly captured in Honolulu, Hawaii, appears to show a number of mysterious orbs moving in unison along the horizon on a cloudy evening.
The eight-minute video was posted on YouTube in October by a channel called Earth & Space News.
It appears to show the objects blinking lights on and off and darting around the sky at random – however, one expert remains skeptical.

The eight-minute clip shows mysterious orbs moving around the sky on a cloudy evening although there is no information about when it was recorded or by who
There is little information about the video, when it may have been recorded or by who.
Ben Hansen, a former investigator for the Syfy Channel’s Fact or faked: Paranormal Files, says there are a number of credibility issues with the clip.
Hansen pointed out some issues in the video – such as the odd movements of the orbs and the fact that the horizon appears to move while the clouds stay in place.

Ben Hansen says the lights appear to go out at the same time because it is easier to this than individually make each light fade in and out
‘The fact that the blinking lights usually all go out at the same time might indicate a laziness in editing,’ he said.
This is because it is easier to do this than individually change each light to fade in and out, according to Hansen.
He added: ‘They do an OK job with tracking the animation layer over the background, but I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if the video was also filmed off a projected screen of some sort to give the impression of zooming in and out with a handheld camera.’
There’s also the fact that a shortened version of the same video appeared on another UFO-themed YouTube channel in 2013 – and also contained no information about when it was filmed.
