When the news crew cut to a live shot over Milwaukee, it seemed the apocalypse was happening! Just look at that madness unfolding on live TV! And nobody had an explanation for it, until the web stepped up its collective deductive powers.

Some of the more prominent comments on the YouTube clip theorize some logical thoughts.

"This could only be Drones surely! they also don't have contrails, if you look at the car lights in the bottom left you can see every moving light has a trail so that only means they're let it, like a drone right?! they all have lights."

 

"a swarm of mosquitoes or gnats close to the camera illuminated by a light source, the trails are just camera artifacts"

 

"If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say a flock of seagulls. The trails are a compression issue, or an issue with shutter speed, etc. It's nighttime so the trails are easily explainable as a camera issue, it also isn't a high quality feed. White birds reflecting all those bright white lights down there. Milwaukee is next to a body of water, Seagulls are most likely."

Now I've never been to Wisconsin, but isn't it a little early for mosquitoes?

What do you think it is?
