UFO vids in Miami and Houston

Iím thinking this is just a publicity stunt or some kind of hoax but two very similar videos are coming out of Miami and Houston : the Miami one showing bright lights that dart off in different directions and the Houston has similar lights that look like their hovering and twinkling out. Donít see any debunking because they are so new.

The Houston one looks like flares to me. The Miami one, not so much because the lights dart off rapidly.

Houston

Miami

What yíall think?

Pretty typical "Lights in the Sky". There is so little data that it is just about impossible to really identify them. I suppose they might be Flying Saucers piloted by Little Green Men from a planet circling Proxima Centauri but experience to date is that they have a much more mundane explanation. I remain open to be proven wrong.

Houston... Flares, maybe

Miami... looks like fakery to me.

The Miami one was done with an app. Apologies for the Twitter link, but debunking here:

Includes a video showing the horrible motion tracking.

They also speculate the Houston one is a launch of sky lanterns.
