I doubt this camera would show such a thing, but the illumination, or bright pulse, of a lightning strike is from ground to cloud, not cloud to
ground, as many people think. Our eyes and brain lie to us about this:
Such a straight stike, were it true, (from high to low), would not be in accord with known facts about natural lightning.
The slight movement of the camera could have been the result of any number of reasons unrelated to a hoax, such as a wind gust, or someone just
leaning against the car in passing.
However, the enhancements made so far, especially the one showing the movements of the "ship", seem to be rather CGI in nature. Also, I fail to see
the stratigic value in catching a thief when the camera is placed facing an area where so few cars would be visable when parked. Most attempts to do
such a thing would focus on an area where the greatest number of parking spaces would be viewed, as this would increase the chances of seeing a parked
vehicle being molested.
While not so rash as to call "hoax" just yet, this video is certainly very questionable, at least IMO.
