Add to that the perspective (object gets noticeably larger when closer to camera). That rules out bugs or something else close to the camera.

Why?

Doesn't seem logical that a bug 10 meters front of, and one meter below, the camera would look smaller than a bug a meter in front of, and a meter below, the camera?

Something the size of a penny would look penny-sized close to me, but seem smaller if it were 10 meters away.

Hmmm. I meant to write "doesn't it seem logical that a bug...".

I suppose the context of my message took care of my intention, but what I did write ("doesn't seem logical that a bug...") when taken out of context can be read to have the opposite meaning than I intended.

All I see is a flash. Is that what is the UFO?

edit:

Ok, a couple of blurs.

Oh, come on! The slow-motion video clearly shows a small OBJECT at the beginning. Perhaps you need to upgrade your monitor to one capable of higher screen resolution.

A bird that travels hundreds of mph without signs of ANY flapping wings? No, I don'think so.

IT doesn't fly at hundreds of miles a hour that was based on INCORRECT assumptions if you bother to read the other posts.

my initial thoughts are that this is a small object given its trajectory and the size difference from when it appears to when it leaves the frame, if it were this small and at that height there would be no noticeable shadow.

If it's not a bird it is probably a gert big bug. It's either very close and small or closer to the ground and fast, im leaning towards number 1 here.



I think every time that one of these videos of tiny blobs moving quickly across the field of view of a camera comes along, accompanied by some ridiculous assumption about the speed of it, this Father Ted videos needs to be posted.

Its a bug which is flying very close to the camera and ufos can't be that small as I am a really good licenced ufo specialists with offical papers. Aliens gave them.

I'm with you Spotless, either really good cgi or a ufo.
Even from the youtube video at fullscreen with 1980x1020 resolution I could see the object from almost where the the orange dot is in the imgur link.
I like how in the last few frames it is visible the object seems to have a very sleek aerodynamic shape like a spear tip.

13000mph my ass I would like to see how that was calculated size of object unknown distance unknown his claims for distance cannot be confirmed. The drone has a wide angle lens the object could be small and very close here is an example of how focal length distorts perspective.

snip

The statue in the picture photographed with 2 different lenses to be approximately the same size in each image but look at the church in the background. According to his logic the church would have moved closer for the second picture


You always whip out your 2 photos to try to explain something your photos have nothing to do with. You can see in the video that there is no wide-angle lens distortion so the drone's camera could be on a "normal" setting, neither wide angle nor telephoto. Since the drone is flying at a good height, capturing a lot of the surface, wide angle is not necessary. And since the distance that is shown doesn't change, certain points can be calculated for the object's speed. It's going damn fast!

Why don't you read a textbook on photography and retire your comparison photos until they make sense.

And here is another video on YouTube titled: "UFO caught in 4K with drone" - you can see it just below the mountain tops left of center. You're better off playing the video at 1/4 speed.

Well first so it sinks in (POSSIBLY) those pics are not mine I have never said they were and they do
show how perspective looks different from a wide angle or telephoto lens.

With regards to your drone camera comment


Lens
FOV 94° 20 mm (35 mm format equivalent) f/2.8, focus at ∞


Typical 4k camera spec for focal length on a drone.

It always helps when YOU have access to similar equipment my friend has a a dji Inspire and I have flown it a few times.

YOU were saying what about lens settings next time before trying to be a smartass check your claims

If it was a bug close to the camera (as it passed maybe a couple of feet below the camera), it would look fast to the camera, because it would be only flying through a small field of view.

I can pass my hand in front of my face in a flash, so fast that my eyes barely see my hand -- but my hand is not moving at hundreds of miles per hour; it only appears fast because it is near my eyes.

That one looks even more bug-like than the object in the OP's video.

Some years ago I was making some test videos when I caught a seagull landing on a chimney and a bird or insect flying between the camera and the building in front of the building where I live. If the building wasn't some 15 metres away from the camera we could say that whatever moved in front of the camera was travelling at some huge miles per hour, but as we have a reference we can see it was not.



Edited to add that the bird or insect appears right at the end of the video, flying from right to left.

Edit 2: the bird or insect doesn't really move between the building and the camera, my mistake.

It looks a lot to me like a bug flying close to the drone, maybe only a couple feet from the camera, giving the illusion of high velocity.

10,000 mph

2.7 miles/sec

14,000 plus feet/sec

Seems obvious that can't be true. Time of video and object size.

I use a phantom 3 pro. fairly regularly. And i have never had an anomaly like this show up in my videos. At first i thought maybe a dead pixel or something or a flare on the camera, but
It reminds me of a small bolt of energy.

I have never seen a bird that size, fly that fast.

Here's a thought: it could also be a hoax.

Hey , watch it there.....
But I concur with the sarcasm..
