Seven dots hover in the air over Japan’s coastline. They move around, passing one another in what looks like some kind of synchronized flying routine. Shot by user “stanley2258,” the video is definitely intriguing but suspiciously short. If the objects were as clear as they are in the video, why not keep recording? And why are there no other videos of the phenomenon, seen in broad daylight? While some Japanese commenters have been trying to connect the UFO sightings and last March’s earthquake, others say it just looks like a reflection of car lights. Are they trying to tell us something? Or is someone with a video camera having a laugh?
