Experienced pilot. Look at the white light in the red frame.
I've watched it several times and all I can come up with is possible CGI.
It can't be an insect, dandelions, moth, as it moves too fast and has a 3D depth perception from when it appears to where it passes by the camera.
It looks re-creatable, but I have never came across one of these types of UFOs from this close a perspective.
Seems like a perfect place to put a passing UFO considering the air drag it seems to cause to the glider.
Perfect CGI insertion or real phenomenon?
Looks like it came from below. Maybe someone was shooting something at them? Like kids shooting a slingshot or something? Don't see UFO evidence here
except in the sense that it is flying and as of yet unidentified. No aliens, though.
By the way, shooting a slingshot at paragliders sounds fun!
This thing curves at an arc, it can't be something like a projectile making an arc maneuver being it is spherical.
Watching it in real time it looks like the object drags the air causing the sail to be pulled back from the front. If it's CGI then whoever inserted
it took some time being precise and as accurate as possible as if the object was really there.
Weird wtf was that . it looked to perfect and far from perfect to be cgi or the artist was really great at working out the sequence and the distortion
as it arcs upwards at the end. if faked they did a great job of staging the whole thing even down to what would other wise be a lose of wind or air
These ropes are not simple fishing line, they are heavy and holding the weight of the pilot at the point it passes by the canopy. The logic that a
bird with a glowing aura around it could fly right through the glider, hitting the ropes/canopy, not slowing down at all, and pulling the canopy back
as if a school bus just flew past him makes no sense.
Bird doesn't fit the puzzle, it does if you are under the 9-11 new physics.

It's white, it moves upward, and it's faster than the backwards 9-11 birds. If it's a bird, I'd love to see another video of an indentical flyby
It's too perfect to be shoved aside as 'fake' right off the bat. If a solid object moved at those speeds that close to the canopy, it would create
just about the same affect as appears in the video. Very well made if fake. But if it's not fake then we may have something here.
Before you come to any conclusions about this video becoming a hoax thread, why doesn't anyone go do some research about paragliding crashes and see
if it is possible that a backwind was a possible cause of the sail folding in on itself. If that cannot be proven, or other factors proven, this video
could stand to be legit.
Fyi, before I watch any video on ATS, I usually have my sound off just in case there is any bad music playing in the background of the video
