One the first video:
I am interested though, what type of bird it would be, and how big would it have to be to show up like that?
I too, wish the photo was alot clearer. The object seems fairly 'thick' or has some density to it –
I know the wildlife in the area - and I know there are bats that live in the Botanical Gardens during the day in the Morton Bay Figs and the bannana trees and they take flight at dusk in huge numbers - also the amount of Ibis that are in Sydney - also that it is not that far from the zoo which also attracts an amount of free birds - planes dont fly that close in near the city - I cant imagine a blimp being that low in the sky so close, but its not impossible ...
The second one:
It took me 4 views to find what they had 'filmed'.
Can I ask what makes you think its computer generated?

Interesting, the shape somewhat looks similar to this Finland one I saw in a blog. www.streetviewfun.com...
But I am not sure what this red object is...

Hmm, Im not convinced it is a bird because of the shape at this stage - left hand side vertical edge of the shape - the lack of wing pixel definition (even if they are at body level) with light on the top - no body contour definition - which end do you see as being the front and which end is back on the bird. Where does the tail start - The most common bird in Sydney is the Seagull and small, what size would consider the bird in the picture.
I'm still open to this definition, but I'm not convinced by the examples, as yet, - it could be something other than a bird.
Do you think the perspective is correct - the object is at cloud level?
I will see if I can get a better resolution picture than the one in the video from the original source if possible, to examine a bit closer.
Thanks for doing the picture examples too

Really? It is impossible for me to find the exact shape and size of the object. But Im not sure how anyone could think it is not a bird? And disregard any pixelation, etc. You can not base anything on that. You are working with a horrible horrible copy.
The left side is the head - I can even see how it turns into the beak. The back is the tail which tapers off like a tail would. The shape is 99.9% the shape of a bird in flight w/ its wings tucked to side before the wings are lifted up and down.
I see absolutely no other explanation unless someone can provide what other object it could be.
As far as size. Completely impossible to judge. You can not judge depth in a photography. It could be a very small bird closer to the camera or a large bird further out. You can not compare it to the other objects in the photo. Again, go look at the link I posted.
