NG, I believe Johnbro was shaking the camera on purpose to reproduce the effects the F.A.S.T. people we getting, and trying to make money off of. You have to admit there are some striking similarities in a few of his pictures, at least imo I think there are. BTW, Very nice shot of the ISS you got there btw, excellent.

and it's pretty obvious to me and probably 95% of this forum, that "Walson" just wants money.
Also a little more than tired of all these people who say things like "people who write books or make videos on the subject of UFO's are just out to make money" that's a BS statement IMHO. /quote]
You would be hard-pressed in this society of ours today, to find ANYONE, not "in it for the money". Regarding anything.
Not trying to disagree with you, per se.

I believe that's caused by atmospheric distortion/reflection. Kind of like the effect oil has on a water puddle. The oil reflects different colors of the light spectrum than the clear water does.
Thinking about the material that is in the atmosphere, it makes sense to me it would do the same thing with an exceptionally bright or large star or planet's light. I too have seen this many times out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and right here in Indian Territory.
That's correct. It's also caused by atmospheric dust particles, and the actual 'thickening' of the atmosphere as you look towards any horizon - ie. you're looking 'along' the lengh of the atmosphere, as it were. So the distortions become greater nearer the horizon. An optical illusion basically.
