I found this video on NASA's website when I was looking for images of lunar flashes. It's supposed to show some lunar flashes in real time but they're hard to see. Then what caught me by surprise was the last part of the video being labeled "UFO" and it shows an object flying across the video. It looks like an airplane to me so why did NASA put the label "UFO" on the video?

Here's a screenshot of it:


If you want to see the video link, scroll down to the very bottom of this page:

www.nasa.gov...

Windows Media, 6.1 Mb
This video shows several lunar impact flashes and other events detected at the Automated Lunar and Meteor Observatory (ALaMO). It plays in real time. A green box marks the area where the flash was observed. (NASA)
The description doesn't say anything about a UFO so that was the last thing I expected to see in that video.

Ok...nice grab! First take I would say aside from the inferred, this could be a satellite traveling between the lens and moon. I would like to see it enhances and slowed. It certainly wasn't expected; coming in at the tail end of the video and abruptly cut off. Nice work. Has this been discussed previous though?

Cool video but I get a plane vibe...

Its a commercial airliner, clear as day between the lens and the moon.

Can the vid be slowed down enough to match a specific airliner silhouette? Looks like 737. Are there other examples of aircraft doing this?

If it has, I missed the discussion, but I wasn't on ATS in 2006.

Very odd , I took the liberty of uploading the video to embed it here .



Edit
As the ALaMO is Earth based I suppose as you said the probability is that it is an aircraft , the shape and what look to be aviation strobes do suggest that.

The only reason I can think why they would label it UFO is NASA humour .... Har Har , very droll.

Good work, I was looking for a youtube version, but you put your own up.

Anyway It's a plane of some sort, you can just catch a strobe flash under the plane as it goes by. The vertical stabiliser looks pretty big, a bit like Concord's was.

Definitely an airplane between the camera and the moon.

It looks like a shot of Fireball XL5 to me, on a routine mission.

It's a very cool video, plane or otherwise.

Peace

C'mon Arbitrageur. You know better than that. You can see the navigation lights on the wing tips flash as it goes by.

I couldn't think of any other reason.

I didn't ask what it was, I asked why NASA called that a UFO, but gortex answered that I think, unless someone else has a better answer.

Here's a capture from the video as a strobe flashes underneath.

Airliners generally don't climb at such a steep angle even on take off.

The silhouette from the screenshot looks like an SR-71 which had an extremely steep climb angle on take off so it could quickly get to an altitude where it could not be visible with the naked eye. Just a thought.

I mean you're stirring the UFO/NASA conspiracy plot pot. No matter how many times it's shown it's an airplane, some people will still believe....

Whatever aircraft it is, it seems to have an angle of climb around ~45 degrees.

Here's a graphic from Boeing's Aero magazine that shows the typical angles of ascent for airliners:



This paper points towards the aircraft being fixed wing and badass.

Wouldn't there be a contrail behind the plane? At the very least the atmosphere should show some "rippling" in the jet's wake.. particularly at magnification. Right?

I respectfully disagree. NASA stirred the UFO pot when they allowed the UFO label on their video on their website!

looks like a private jet to me .

a reply to: Kandinsky
In order to presume that shows a climb, we would need to know the orientation of the camera relative to the horizon. Do we know that? You seem to be assuming the bottom of the frame is level with the ground, but I don't know that it is (or that it isn't). I really don't know.

Sort of, but even then I don't see how it's a conspiracy, which would imply NASA is keeping secrets. They post their photos and videos in public (like this one) so I'm not seeing a conspiracy. Sure they do doctor some raw images to make them look pretty for the media, but any serious researcher can find the undoctored raw images, so that's not evidence of a conspiracy either.
