    That's for sure, but sadly the norm these days. That Denver Post article is garbage reporting. If the quoted portion above is accurate, then it would be easy to confirm. Did you hear it clearly? You'd think so since it is described as a desolate area. On a clear night you be able to clearly delineate between a 6' drone "several hundred feet above the fields" and a 737 many thousands of feet up. Imagine a 6' drone flying through the center of the St. Louis Arch (630' high) over your head. Think you would be able to know the difference? I do. Did they even check the flight data available to anyone to track known traffic? Nah, that might kill the story.

    Thing is, there's enough oddity to the whole thing to arouse some measure of concern, especially in this day and age of Gov over-reach. This part I found worth pursuing.

    "Yowell and Nestor thought they had figured out a pattern: The drones first were seen after Christmas in the northern part of the county and worked their way south, mostly flying in rigid, grid-like patterns. They traveled across the county horizontally, down a bit, then made their way back across in the other direction."

    Could it be a gas or oil company running quiet, nighttime scans of the area, trying to get the jump on the competition? Very well could be. Could it be the Gov running covert tests for some reason, maybe even just to gage the populous reaction? It wouldn't shock me in the least. Heck, it could even be a new tactic from drug smugglers. Lots of possibilities, once you filter out the bs hysteria sightings. Some very benign, many not. The crap reporting is the most frustrating, as you stated. If they have a definitive grid pattern established, then what is in those areas that might be of interest to anyone? Jeez, connect the dots and find some answers. It seems like too many people are happy to just say "huh, that sure is weird." and move on. That casual attitude by seemingly everyone but the tinfoil hat crowd is what worries me. Especially given the possible ramifications should we blindly dismiss the facts. I'm thinking along the lines of the flight school training prior to 9-11 and how all the signs were there and everyone ignored them. I'm still kind of leaning towards a proactive gas company trying to check out the area without alerting the competition, but the worst case scenarios warrant more attention than this seems to be garnering.
    I agree. The indifference of otherwise intelligent people is the most disturbing aspect.

    I am sure you get a least 30 gun shots fired reported in your area in the same time period that end up meaning nothing.

    But drones are very fascinating so I could be wrong and perhaps its a Canadian branch of the Hell's Angels smuggling high priced prescription drugs across the border.

    And yet another news outlet making a bad call.

    This time is was a Cessena Caravan they captured on film.

    Below is what they saw.

    And here is a Cessena Caravan.

    metabunk-2020-01-08-09-46-13-jpg.39188.jpg

    This video even sounds like what the news captured.



    The drone hysteria is making more people look up into the night sky when they normally don't bother, thus they label it a drone. The news don't care either way, no one holds them accountable and they need to keep up with the Jones with what's good clickbait for the advertisements.

    I doubt that very much. A group of drones does not in any way resemble three airliners, nor do airliners fly at the low altitudes used by drones.

    I would actually believe UFO's before I would buy this one.
    I'm referring to this article(link below) in particular, in one of the photos you can see its the underbelly of a 737 with the nav lights on. Independent people have verified that three 737s were flying in the vicinity, the first plane was there at 8:09 and 55 seconds p.m, the second plane was 8:13 and 32 seconds p.m, and the last one was at 8:15 and 19 seconds p.m.
    Yet in the article we have them calling it drones in the sky. This quote from the deputy sheriff clearly describes the three 737s flight pattern.
    “Drone activity reported just now, Highway 71 and County Road 4D,” Deputy Justin Allen says in a text message to a Denver Post reporter, who’s on the hunt for drones hovering over the Eastern Plains.

    On a desolate dirt road just north of Limon, the sky is lit by stars and a waxing crescent moon. Then, a small set of red-and-white lights blink rapidly, punctuating the rural Colorado landscape. The aerial object travels briskly across the sky at several hundred feet above the fields and wind turbines. Minutes later, another one creeps onto the horizon. And then another one.
    Of course there will be hoaxers capitalising on all this but it's telling that we cannot take the word of LEOs on such sightings if they can easily assume something that is not. There are flight tracking apps that could've help them here but they instead simply fostered the hysteria.

    I am with MM on this one. It is extremely odd that no one tracked this one down yet. Not including if some potentially bad guys could do this it could be very ugly

    I like it!!

    Big meeting recently between the state and county LEO's and government agencies. Usual results..."nobody knows nothing".

    Odd, isn't it? We can listen to every single cellphone in America and abroad, but somehow we just can't track or identify the frequencies or transmitters used to control a bunch of drones.

    I smell that sour odor of moldy crotch rot and rancid bulls**t peculiar to the Federal Government. That "powerful odor of mendacity" that we taxpaying citizens known only too well.

    The FBI, FAA and U.S. Air Force are investigating a mystery in the skies over Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas. Swarms of drones have been spotted there — sometimes in formation. But who's flying them?

    For the last week, Michelle Eckert has spotted a high-flying, night-time mystery above her rural northern Colorado home. She has seen drones, sometimes a dozen or more with wingspans 6 feet wide.

    "The sky is lit up with Christmas lights basically," she told CBS News. "There's lights and things flying all over. It reminded me of something from a movie."

    Sheriff's departments across the border area of three states have been flooded with at least 30 reports since mid-December.
