Thanks for those links! I've reviewed them and it seems they all are based on the same sources. At least the analyst, Ana Luisa Cid, thinks the
footage is likely to be genuine. According to her website she seems to have looked at a lot of UFO footage over the years.
I wasn't able to use any excerpts from this source, but it's pretty informative.

Thanks. It seems like the general consensus is that the UFO is a fake, there's no one that really points out anything concrete about the video that
makes one able to discern if it's in fact fake or not. It just "seems" fake to the majority.
There are the usual pointers in the direction of a fake however. The sound doesn't really make it an objective way of looking at the footage,
although it might have been added by the youtube user that uploaded it.
Also, the fact that he suddenly seems to have spasms in a critical point in the video, when the alleged UFO seems to turn vertically, is highly
However, it's hard to conclude what it really is without an objective look at the video with a proper analysis. Which I am not able to do.
But my opinion so far is that the footage remains inconclusive, although I have a foot in the hoax-camp.
