Certainly one of the more shocking-if-legit videos.
A few comments:
1 - The light which descends is the same size and shape as some of the other lights visible in the footage. It would be easy to copy one of those
lights and insert it without looking fake - the compression and everything on the light would be appropriate for the environment. I can't tell whether
it was faked or not. Just the light is similar size/shape/brightness to other lights. That could mean it was edited, OR it could mean that the light
is really there. Take what you will
2 - The comments of the people in the video are not preemptive, nor were the camera motions preemptive. They react to the alleged object with
reasonable and expected timing.
3 - The object appears to shoot upwards after a bright flash of light is seen nearby. What was this flash of light? It was really bright! What makes
lights that bright? It didn't seem to be a spotlight or directional beam, it just seemed to illuminate the surrounding area. The light flash doesn't
look edited to me, though I have not done any video analysis - just watched it several times in HD.
4 - The object moves and hovers in a way that is quite uncharacteristic of publicly known terrestrial aircraft.
5 - The red lights in the sky after the object jets up are the least "real" looking part of the video, in my opinion. But they aren't fake-looking to
the point where I would personally declare the video to be fake. They just look strange.
6 - The other dude is either taking photos or videotaping on his phone. This was only posted yesterday or the day before, so we should not discard the
sighting because the other footage isn't posted. People have already requested via youtube that the OP get his buddy's footage and upload it. If we
can get that footage and it shows the same thing... Well, this video might be one of the best UFO videos around. If if if if if...
7 - The OP doesn't have any other public videos posted, though he has been subscribed to Youtube since 2007. It looks like the account isn't very
active, besides commenting (but I don't know how to search for comments on YT). Searching google for "eligael site:youtube.com" shows a few links to
videos of a wedding, and a private video posted called "Gedalyovich", which google translator cannot translate or figure what language it's from.
8 - Cell phones often do not have zoom. Also, most cell phones and many cheaper cameras only have a digital zoom, which might help a little, but
generally sucks and is just like blowing the image up in photoshop, resulting in blurriness. If the object in question is small, like in this video,
digital zoom will likely only distort the image and not show any TRUE additional detail. Especially for this video, the object is just a point of
light on screen. I think iPhones have no zoom? Also certain popular HD cameras like the Flip cam have no zoom or very limited zoom. The thing even
digital zoom is good for on a UFO video is that it is harder to fake something when you have footage of it zoomed and 1x.
All in all, a cool video. We will just have to wait for the other dude's footage or some other footage to find if it's real. It seemed to be in a
populated area, right over the Temple Mount - tons of people watch that area daily/nightly, I would imagine. Hopefully more footage will surface.
Thanks for posting with YT as a source so we can discuss here
