Video Shows Object in Sky Behind St. Peter's - ( That's one BIG 'bird!' )
Photo of 'Fireball' over St. Peter's on morning of Pope's funeral: Photo courtesy of WISH-TV, Indianapolis. Image appeared on the station's 11 p.m. newscast on April 7, 2005. It was 6:03 a.m. in Rome on the morning of April 8, 2005, 6 hours prior to the funeral of Pope John Paul II. Was this given as a harbinger of coming events?
The light pictured here appeared over St. Peter's Basilica. It was 6:03 a.m. Italian time on the morning of April 8, 2005, 6 hours before Pope John Paul II's funeral. An Unknowncountry.com reader writes, "I watched this as it happened live on TV. It was awsome and just a little chilling. I feel that this event (sign) is if great significance."
The object appeared on a network feed camera. It passed quickly in a diagonal trajectory and has been dismissed by the meteorologist at WISH-TV in Indianapolis, where the image was noticed and the frame grabbed, as a bird. However, our reader, who saw the video itself and not just a frame grab, comments, "If the weather people at WISH had taken the time to actually view the video footage itself instead of looking only at a single still they would never have made such a ridiculous observation as guessing that it might have been a bird. It's THAT dramatic."
Night video is notoriously deceptive and difficult to analyze, and there is no way to be certain that this is an anomalous object, but numerous viewers who called our attention to it claim that it appeared much larger than a bird, and to have an internal light source. It moved very quickly, with a swift gliding motion. No other similar objects appear on the tape.
