I took a quick clip from Aljazeera news last night.

It was during a phone interview and shows a big fast bright light shoot from behind the buildings in the distance.

I understand that the situation there is manic and I am no expert so this may just pass off as gunfire.

Can someone confirm that this is what gunfire looks like at night?

If not then what could it be?

Edit: We need to rule out this bug talk, like i said it was shown from 2 different angles/ cameras, sorry i couldn't catch the other clip but I heard from other people last night on here that also seen the 2 clips. thanks

Looks too large to be gunfire in my opinion...Also, tracer rounds would have been more of a "streak" effect..

Interesting to say the least...

Too fast for a flare as well..

Good catch..

If there is a light behind the camera, then a bug flying close by will be illuminated by it as it passes by, it disappears as it moves away from the camera.

I dont know what it is but its sure going fast ..Im thinking not a UFO but its a good video thanks for posting~~

If it is a UFO then the occupants would have a motive to be around that area, they probly want to see whats going on in the city with the whole protesting and revolt thing over there.

Just a thought.

I forgot to mention.

during the clip on the news it switched from one camera to another (pointing in the same direction but from another building) which also shown this bright light shooting up.

So this cancels out any bugs as it was shown on this other clip/ camera angle.

I wasnt able to catch the other clip as it didnt show it again, only this one....

I started a discussion on this last night without the vid and a few people said they seen both the clips and the light!

heres the other thread where other people said they seen it.

Tracer fire. I've seen similar bursts documented by Anderson Cooper on CNN. Then again Anderson Cooper recently called Jesse Ventura's "Conspiracy Theory" show "A joke", so...

Can you give us more details about the Aljazeera story?

Perhaps we can find a clearer, better version online.

Hey, the story was just about the riots/ protests etc.

It was a phone interview with a few clips of the city in the background.

The bright light was shown from 2 different angles but i only managed to catch 1.

Thats about it really.

Sorry if thats bit vague but thats all i know.

Are you on about me faking it?

I have better things to do and I get very annoyed by hoax videos my self.

This was on the news! I recorded my tv while it was being shown, as i have explained!!

other people seen it on the news last night as i mentioned in a post (that i started last night when i seen it!)

Like i said it prob is gunfire or something similar

it is defiantly not a bug though cause it shown it twice from 2 different angles/ cameras!!

This is the UFO forum- I don't know what you were expecting to find in it. At the end of the day, humans are curious creatures, it's good that we think critically and question things. I for one am intrigued- and clearly others are too- this video is very strange, particularly given the source. Sure, it could be a bug, like it has been suggested, but there's no harm in questioning things. Taking things on face value is boring!

I'm going for flying insect on this one, the way it suddenly appears would coincide with a fast flying bug hitting a TV light or bright room light ie its in the shot earlier but only becomes visible when the light illuminates it and with it being close to the camera it seems to look like its flying super fast.

A TV camera light would make it appear bright white as it would be over exposed for that short space of time.

Tracer fire would have had a definite origin..

I actually saw this from the alleged second angle, last night.
I thought it was tracer fire.

Sorry im not to up on weapons and stuff.

What is tracer fire and why would they use it?

posted on Jan, 31 2011 @ 12:46 PM
They use tracers every so many rounds, to direct their firing onto a target. Why was your other thread closed? it started first, as in yesterday.
