I watched the video twice to see if they mentioned which direction they were looking while filming, but they did not.
If they were filming to the west, at 6am, I'm thinking that what they are seeing is Betelgeuse. I have watched it at all hours in view of the sky and
it looks exactly like the video.
As far as the "Movement" goes ... You'll notice in the video that all of the movement is from the camera operator's actions, which will be seen in
an exagerrated manor due to the camera being zoomed in to the star. At the beginning of the video you can see that the movement from the "ufo"
matches the same movement of the foreground trees and power lines. Also, at the end of the video when the camera is zooming out, the movements start
to diminish and then we see the same power lines from before, but notice they're not as shaky either.
As far as the size and shape changes go ... It is a result from the camera operator zooming in and out, trying to get a decent focus. This would make
the object appear to change sizes. The shape changes can be explained in the upper section along with movement.
I think that they were unsure of what they were looking at and made their decision that it was "deffinately not a star, but something else" while
they trying to film it and noticed that it "moved so fast they had to move the camera to keep up with it" and that it also changed shape and
As far as the object changing colors go .. There are many stars and planets that are visible in the night sky that will appear to change colors or
flash like lights. This is mainly due to atmospheric distortions that we can detect with the naked eye. Betelguese was my first guess, because it
will appear to be very bright and have eradict looking color flashes.
After viewing the video and listening to the testimony of the people, my final decision is that the object is a star.
Final thought .. I watched the video again and it looks as if the camera is pointed East due to the lighting of the horizon and the time being 6am.
If this video was taken at 6am of the Eastern sky, then the object could not have been Betelguese, because at 6am Betelguese would have been in the
Western sky. Therefore, the object would most likely have to be Arcturu which has the same characteristics as Betelguese.
Camera facing West at 6am = Betelguese.
Camera facing East at 6am = Arcturu
