I think this one is more interesting. why is this dark ufo hovering over a roller coaster ride at Six Flags?
I"m surprised this guy got away with taping while he was on the roller coaster. This thing looks like a black ball in the sky. Somebody have any thoughts about it?

Well, putting the story aside for the moment; Other than the short clips of passenger jets all we have is shaky, blurry footage typical of someone trying to record a point of light in the sky. We don't see any of the acrobatics described in the report.
For what it's worth; Looking at the sky chart for Atlanta on 9/5 at 21:45 I see that Arcturus, a red giant, magnitude .05 star (third brightest in the sky) was only 23 degrees above the horizon and due West. Right where this guy was looking.

Then you haven't seen much UFO footage.
Considering all the factors involved, there's a possibility that the people recording thought it was a UFO, but given all the factors of it being at an amusement park with balloons, lights, etc., even if it WAS a UFO, there's no way to prove it with this video.

...you'd never film a star with a video camera as it isn't bright enough. A still camera with an exposure of several seconds would be the minimum to record even the slightest trace of a star.

The only Major Celestial Bodies present within a Westward FOV at that time were the Moon, at 7 Deg. ALT, and Pluto, at 36 Deg. ALT. (Above The Horizon-WSW). The only Constellations with a high enough Magnitude to likely be visible within this same Field of View, are Ursa Major, and Ursa Minor (To the NNW).
