There is one thing that immediately concerns me. I'm posting my observation below.
The relevant sequence begins at 0:11, and the camera is again steady. At 0:14, the camera gets turned once; simultaneously the other officer gets out
of the car. The camera is again steady until 0:28, when the search begins for the object. At either 0:45 or 0:46, the object enters the frame. The
camera is, in all this time, reasonably steady as it zooms in on the object; a fuzzy, cubical shape.
At 0:53, the camera gets an excellent zoom of the fuzzy cube... then the camera gets shaky until 1:06, when the cube is in view again. This is, I
think, the best shot to capture the rest of the object's descent, and without the light pollution; perhaps, the best chance to identify the
object. But the camera shakes. It shudders and shivers until the object is left with a measly, almost-bottom-right corner position at about 1:18. At
1:22 or 1:23, the footage ends. What plays afterwards is a repeat of the footage until its closeup.
Why did it shake so much? A known excuse exists for hand held camera footage; yet this was mounted. There were good shots of the object, and
several chances at good shots when the camera went off. I also don't think the Officer was so distraught as to keep fidgeting with the camera.
