I am so waiting for the HD DVD.
It is becoming more and more tenuous trying to extract any science out of video that has gone through a few generations and switching codex's. In
fact there are so many uncertainties and combination's of variables it is downright silly. So all we have is ... well, this.
We've seen this video several times, edited in many ways, and the hotspot trail we have here , likely a simple effect plug-in for After Effects or
Final Cut Pro that simply extends the time a bright pixel sustains. Good idea.
I would however challenge anyone to definitively prove anything here unless they have had access to the original or have it on good authority this is
unknown or known objects.
You need several good videos of proven ice crystals to evaluate first. And after that you would only be able to account for some observed objects. So,
all we have is educated guesses, dead reckoning, enthusiastic hopefulness and then a few that believe anything they do not understand.
If the flash is a positional adjustment, the light comes from the gas reflecting light. It is not ignited. I cannot see any position change, so if it
is position adjustment it is a very small micro adjustment to the craft.
All the past speculation is that it was a particle weapon. The particle stream would not be seen traveling. It is near light speed. So likely not
that. It could be an electromagnetically accelerated projectile, or another exotic orbital weapon that got funding likely not for UFO (publicly), but
satellite warfare. So the flash could be related to whatever technology is being incorporated. We don't know what that could be.
I've seen real UFOs. I know they exist, but if was uninitiated as such and someone else would have told me they exist based on their experience I
would have reservations no matter how convincing their arguments. But I want proof. Not for me, but for those who have not experienced the truth yet.
The ones screaming for truth or fearing it. Because it is important we have the perspective that includes such an important reality to go forward. The
implications will shatter our delicate outdated paradigm.
This video is quite interesting, but what we are left with are only our opinions, some based on feelings, some on educated evaluation or even quantum
non local connections in our neural net.
My educated opinion and "non local", after seeing all the videos and documentary discussions for years with many experts and enthusiasts is that it
is something besides the simple ice crystal explanation. There are some convincing things I see that due to my visual skills at knowing how some
things should look, but without any numbers or measurement. Dead reckoning. Astronomy and space science knowledge help too.
I have a good laypersons sense for the orbital environment and science of astronautics and space program operations. I also know the science and
astrophysical subjects including physics where it relates. But all I can muster with this video is an opinion. Albeit a somewhat educated one, but
still only an opinion.
So when we all know all we have is that, you can then concentrate on discovering each others reasons for believing or disbelieving and pose good
questions of each otherto that end. Anything else, ranting, posturing, defending or ignoring. seems childish and a waste of time.
Don't defend your opinion without compelling reasons. You might see something I missed. I want your eyes and mind too.
