Hi guys! I don't believe in UFOs of the alien kind. But here's an object photographed by my friend Streetcap1 on an NVD, uploaded on YouTube recently. It shows a big brightly lit moving object. At first I thought, oh well, that's just a satellite. But then less than half way through the vid the darn thing changes direction!

So a satellite can be ruled out. Then it could well be an aircraft with its landing lights on. Now why the heck would an aircraft have its landing lights on when not in its finals? Anyway, even if it was an aircraft, it changed direction pretty damn fast. Quite a 'high g' turn I should say!



An insect or a bird? Most unlikely. A top secret craft like the Aurora or Nautilus or even the TAW-50? Quite possible.

It therefore probably is:

1. A top secret research craft like the ones mentioned above, or

2. An ordinary aircraft with its landing lights on, or

3. An alien craft of some kind.

As for me I can't even hazard a guess. But that notwithstanding, I'll still put my money on - a 'normal' aircraft with its landing lights on or probably a police patrol chopper with a flood light.

What do you guys think it is?

Looks more like he turns the camera to make the object look like it's changing direction.

Just watch how the stars move in a circular arc which suggests camera is changing direction of focus not the object.

However on 25th August (forgotten what time it was) I saw a bright object like in the video (maybe same object) which grabbed my attention as it flared up twice quite intensely during it's trajectory, didn't change direction though so I put it down to a Sat

The camera jerks right as it changes direction which makes it difficult to track it's motion relative to the stars around it.

Could also be evidence of the camera being turned too.

Not sure though.

Darn! I wish you had taken a vid of that object!

I wish I had too along with a few of the other bizarre things I've seen in the night sky since deciding to not smoke inside and do it outside instead!

It also makes me a bit suspicious when on the same night Streetcap1 filmed three 'UFO's' passing over head using a tripod, yet didn't use it for the OP video...

I go with this and thanks for sharing


Could be camera movement as Chadwicks mentioned but I have seen these lights/objects late at night while deep bush camping and I know the diffrerence between a Sat and the and ISS

Sorry to disappoint you. But here's my take in regards to the OP.

The International Space Station (ISS) has been visible the past few days in the US, and it's easily the brightest light in the sky. It looks large, especially when zoomed in.

As for the "change indirection" you can see that all of the stars alignment changes, so it's actually just the camera changing orientation to keep up with the ISS as it speeds through the sky.

It's a nice shot of the ISS though.

These look a like satellites too. Steady, straight path along the sky. He could have easily cut out the time between without it looking weird since it's on a tripod.

Geeez! I missed the ISS as an option! Thanks. That could be it. As regards the change in camera angle, I went over that portion several times and compared the relative position of the stars. I dunno, but it seems legit ie, no change in camera angle. But that's just me. Anyway, let's see what Streetcap1 has to say to this.

Oh, for crying out loud, lol. Look at this guy's youtube channel. He is your typical "youtube superstar" with minor video editing skills (that means he like to "dabble", trust me)....

I could send this guy a black and white picture of frozen dirt from my backyard and he could pick out the alien bases it shows. Seriously.

This is not a bird, not an insect, not a plane, not a satellite. It is the imagination of the owner. I wish I had time to go further into how I know this, but I would guess that any members that have been around for a time or two, and know how to use their computer can understand why I say this.

I just realized......knowing what I know I could be a superstar.....damn.....

I have been following the UFO subject since 1985, and it just keeps going downhill further and further....

Back in the late1970s into the earl 1980s, there was an org in Austin, Texas, call Project Starlight International. It was started out as a high-faluting outfit, projecting itself as utterly, utterly scientific and very high minded. It committed suicide when it released a video of a "UFO" making a right-angled turn. Upon closer examining of the tape, it was found that the telescope had merely been rotated 90 degrees to produce the supposed turn.

This case, with the star field evident, will be easy to prove or disprove. And IF someone wanted to really claim UFO and not satellite, they can easily check the internet for satellite times. That is a large object, similar to the ISS, so it is not likely to be a typical satellite.

As said you can clearly see the line up of the stars sweep from right to left in an arc just as it is SAID it turns. Sorry, horrendous attempt at a scam.

There are two stars, 1 bright and one just below to the right that is dimmer, as the sat 'turns' watch them closely, suddenly the less bright one swings around to be left of the bright one.

Cheap camera rotation trick..

So suddenly the 'cred' of his other video's goes down the pan....

Sorry mate, not one of his 'fans on ats'..

Just as the object seems to change direction, it passes very close to a bright star. There is another relatively bright star "beneath" those. At the :34 mark, watch as that second star seems to "swing around" clockwise relative to the brighter star at the same time the object is supposedly turning.

I'm not saying that this is conclusive proof that the camera movement made the object only "appear" to turn -- I mean, perhaps the object was still turning at the same time the camera was turning. However, it is very suspicious that the only time the camera DID turn the same time exact same the object supposedly turned.

EDIT TO ADD:
I see 'Mclaneinc' beat me to this. I got distracted and it took too long for me finish composing my reply

Keep you eyes on the stars rather than the object and you can see that it is the camera that rotates at the crucial "direction changing" moment. The object doesn't change course at all. The person who filmed it must have been aware of this, too!

LOL
this is why I read the forum!
I could not agree with you any more and with everyone on the camera rotating.
He also waits until the object is near the top ready to leave the view which it then does.

unfortunate for this guy he fits the boy who cried wolf, now if he ever gets a real ufo and an alien comes down and kicks him in the nuts no one will give it a second look.

sorry

some LEO military satellites do actualy change direction upto 90 degrees so I say satellite...
