Hello good people of ATS,
I was recently looking through some video clips that a friend and I recorded back in 2015. The clips were intended to be used for a short mockumentary on wine making. Unfortunately I never got around to making the mockumentary, but still have all the clips we recorded as a lot of them are very entertaining.
Anyway, as I was looking through the clips I noticed something strange in a shot I took of the moon. The shot was intended to be used as the opening shot, starting with a pan from the sunset to the moon, and then zooming in on the moon. On reviewing the video clip I noticed that as I zoom in towards the moon, something strange happens. I don't want to speculate too much as to what it could be, just incase it is some form of artifact caused by my zooming in. But to me it appears as though there is some form of impact which causes a quick "splatter" of light to shoot off the top of the moon and off to the left. It all happens in an instant, so I'm not surprised that I hadn't noticed it before. But regardless of this, you can still clearly see a "splatter of light shoot off to the left from the top of the moon.
Take a look at the clip yourself and see what you think. The first part of the video includes the entire shot from start to finish, followed by some slowed down and zoomed in versions, as well as a couple of filters to try make the anomaly stand out more. I'm no video editing whizz so make of it what you will.
Unfortunately the clip was recorded with a small handheld digital camera (it was not a big budget production), so it is not particularly good quality (especially when I zoom in). But even though the image is not great, you can still clearly see the anomaly I have described. Please do watch the clip yourself and let me know your thoughts. It would be great to hear yours views.
Also, the clip was recorded on the 2nd April 2015 sometime between 6pm and 8pm if anyone cares.
