The flying saucers could be just swarms of insects

FLYING SAUCERS may be nothing more than swarms of insects that produce an electric shock by crossing an atmospheric electric field. This is at least what two scientists in the Gainesville, Florida, biologic research laboratory have found to be related to many cases of unidentified flying objects in Utah between 1965 and 1968, and the presence at the same time, in the sky of this American state, of enormous swarms of butterflies of the spruce worm.

The two researchers have indeed carried out several experiments during which insects of this species were placed in an electric field.

Immediately, their presence triggers an electrical discharge in their immediate vicinity, which produces a visible light emission.

Researchers estimate that many of the estimated 30,000 reported occurrences of U.F.O. could be just flights of insect swarms. In their opinion, a serious study of these appearances of U.F.O. could provide valuable insights into the migration periods of some insect species.
