Hi MM. It is a flipcamera. Fully automatic and I don't think it has a "flash" feature at all. It was continuously running, stationary, at the top
of a ladder in my back yard. Like I say, same day I caught bugs, birds and bees but this flashed once brightly, I only capture a small image of this
and not at its brightest. It is either fading or appearing in the lower right of the still I was able to freeze. Then 7 seconds later, it appears (in
the photo below it) as dark.
RE: blue ball of light effect, appearing to change colors...
I think I am looking at a star that shows strong scintillation & colour change, such as Betelgeuse or Arcturus.
This is a bit of a relief to me since I couldn't guess, and it was over my house.
Here is a rather boring tiny blue ball. Most things I get have "streak" effects but this is rather condensed and round. It looks a whole lot more
impressive on my original. Here....it looks like a star. It flashed very brightly for a second and then vanished.
This, I imagine is a meteor - a flash of a pink thread (compare to purple squiggle pg1) Yet very different from the "dot" type images which do not
appear to be moving at the same speed as these "line" type images.
