With all due respect Sherpa, one of my most respected members of this board, I discount artifact during tether incident. Too many, too similar for blow off.
I have viewed many stars and some planets from a 6" scope, while I have seen various lens anomalies and artifacting due to refraction

Thank you, Sherpa, for your response. I am aware of the threads pertaining to the tether incident in particular. What about the objects themselves? You mentioned the compilation from youtube sources ... The problem is that I am unsure what keywords to use for a search if I don't want the STS tether incident.

I fail to see how this footage is in any way stunning. In fact, I am stunned by the fact that someone would even say its stunning, and thats really all thats stunning about it. Ill add this to the stack of the 10,056 other stunning blurry balls of light videos in the night sky.
I will be 100% honest with you , I dont know what it was it just looked like a big star, i only videod it as it was more colourfull and bigger than all the others and cause I was bored while waiting on a pizza cooking, I wouldnt normally bother videoing such things.
To me its a coulorfull light maybee a star, I dont spend any of my time "skywatching" and im not really interested in such things.
There are too many theorys on these sites Its so hard to get a definite answer even from your supposed educated experts, It all makes my head spin so id rather not waste my time thinking about that when I have more imediate day to day problems to think about.
I would like to clarify a few things after reading the forum
1.This is not a plasma ball , I did not set up anything, IM NO LIAR!
yes you can assume me to be on the level = Im not stupid.
2.This is the "opened" kitchen back door of a friends house
I didnt video to the left as there is only a kitchen wall there. Fact!
3.I breathed out heavy as I was holding it to keep the camera still at maximum zoom (64x) my jvc says 160x digital zoom on the casing but the max seems to be 64? its an old DV cam.
4.I showed to the best of my ability that it wasnt a setup because I knew folk would accuse me of faking footage, I wasnt exited about taping the thing like"oooh a u.f.o" I was just thinkin "hey that coloured thing looks pretty cool get the camera and ill put it on youtube and try get an explanation"
5. If I shoot a daytime video my mates area might turn into a goddamn ufo hotspot with nutters floking from everywhere,
trying to gain access to his garden for the authentic view
that infringes his privacy and that of his neighborhood.
Im not ruling out a daytime shoot but Ill have to ask his permission.
& try and safe gaurd his privacy somehow?
6. Television company's have sent me phone numbers to call in order to help with documentaries SKY + Channel 4, I have not phoned.
Discussing This subject is taking far more of my time than id imagined it ever would Im thinking of taking the video down in order to get some peace, I dont want to be in some laughable documentary with my face blurred out explaining the events in question.
Also nutters claiming to be from the T.V have asked for my phone number (I could find no info on their supposed T.V company)?
Typing sucks but my character has been questioned,
this email should clear some things up for your website and gives much truth as is humanly possible for your experts to mull over.
The only thing Im still unsure of is what the light was "Exactly"
& I do not intend wasting any more time trying to find out.
