A UFO spotted over the Las Vegas strip can be easily explained and you might not believe what it actually is.
When bright lights were spotted over the strip by an over-eager tourist with a camera, it seemed like he had actually captured some sort of alien craft, blinking on and off rapidly. However, upon loser inspection and a little research, it is easy to see that that was not the case.
The video shows white lights flashing on and off in the sky above the Vegas strip as the cameraman says "Nobody's paying attention to this [s---] but me... this is absolutely incredible ... Look how they move around, they're attracted to the light."
His last few words speak volumes. "They're attracted to light" is a giveaway that what this man is witnessing is not a UFO but instead a group of birds or bats that are feeding on insects. The insects are attracted to the light and therefore the birds or bats are flying in and out of the light trying to catch a late night snack.
This is clearly the case as the Luxor, where this video was taken, has a light called the Luxor Sky Beam, "which is the strongest beam of light in the world." This bright light is a major attraction for insects and those that feed on them.
So after all that, it comes down to the fact that as much as this man wanted to think he was filming a UFO, he wasn't. He was the only one paying attention to the flickering lights because everyone else was too busy gambling or they knew that there were bats feeding above the building.
Did you think the video was an actual alien craft? Or were you sure from the start that it was nothing special?
