I thought and still do think today that this was one of the most significant recorded sitings in history. Very clear video of the object maneuvering.

Im still not to sure how this footage got out though. Does anyone know?

i started a (new) thread about it last week but it didn't spark any interest, unfortunately. For me (being an open minded skeptic) it's the best video i've ever seen which is really beyond explanation.

I'll post the info from my old thread here:

In February 1995 the American TV show 'Hard Copy' broadcast a videotape showing an unidentified object flying over a North American military test range. Further footage was shown the following December on the 'Sightings' TV show.ref 1 The videotape had apparently been filmed by a high-tech Air Force surveillance camera at an undisclosed location within the Nellis Air Force Base Bombing and Gunnery Range Complex, Nevada (often referred to simply as the Nellis Test Range).

The videotape is said to have been smuggled out by contractor personnel who had operated tracking stations on the Nellis range. Copies of the videotape were sold to Paramount Studios (producers of 'Hard Copy' and 'Sightings') by a former Air Force employee who worked on the range, although apparently he had not witnessed the object himself.

Two sections of videotape showing the UFO have come to light. The first section was filmed from a location known as S-30, according to the camera's data display. This shows the object initially as an indistinct 'blob' flying in front of a distant mountain range, before it turns and heads towards the camera location. The camera operator struggles to keep the object within shot as it approaches, and it soon becomes clear that it cannot be identified. It looks similar to a blimp, but with four light-coloured 'lobes' and a dark region at the front. As it nears, it turns to face the tracking station for several seconds, as if performing some kind of surveillance, before it turns away and departs. The footage is of special importance because the voices of the camera operators at the tracking station can be heard on the noisy soundtrack. Their bewilderment at the unexpected appearance of the UFO is clearly audible. "What the hell is it?" one of them exclaims; "Where's it come from?" asks another.

The second section of footage was filmed some 40 minutes later, from camera location S-13. This shows the UFO as a small dot on the horizon, moving away from the tracking camera. Although it has less visual impact, the soundtrack to this section is important because the controllers are heard to simulate a missile launch on the object. It remains visible, however, eventually disappearing into the realm of mystery and speculation that surrounds the Nellis Range.

The footage has been studied by both UFO researchers & aviation experts alike, but to date no-one has been able to provide an explanation as to what the object is, how it is propelled or how it is able to perform the manoeuvres it is seen to do.

Having taken place inside the range, the most likely explanation for the UFO would seem to be that it was a top secret 'black project' which for some reason was allowed to fly in full view of the surveillance cameras. However, according to one anonymous source in the 'Sightings' programme, the camera operators are not exposed to such tests of new technologies, the camera lenses being capped and the equipment turned off during such occasions.

I've seen that before many times What I don't like about it is that stupid glare that seems to stay right in the center no matter which direction the camera turns.

Btw, here's a nice similar sighting (same year, 1994!) of a "multi lobed" object chased by a fighter jet

reply to post by erroristI would love to see both videos in there original form,and have wondered about how both were taken from different tracking camera stations out of Nellis,seems to me ,there had to be a lot of people involved and nobody's talking.
so is it a good hollywood fake,a advanced UAV,or ?.If we are to believe the fine work of a few talented people on its tracking data,alt,speed,direction, then there are a few rapid speed changes of the vehicle,from about 35 to 50 mph to 600 plus in what seems like a eye blink,that hint at a very advanced vehicle.But again nobody is talking,which makes me wonder,is this just another well done Hollywood hoax ? Anybody ?
