[color=dodgerblue]Its a lens flare or a reflection. The video was shot behind a window, I would bet.

Look a little closer.

Im going to guess that he's filming it through some glass and the red dot is a reflection of the video camera record light
Or could be lens flare as said above too

It is definitely lens flare.

The full moon at night can look extremely bright through a camera. When I tried to video tape a brief shot of the Supermoon last month, I was surprised just how much light was coming off of it. Even after stopping my lens down all the way it was too bright and I had to start using my neutral density filters to cut the light to 1/16 before I could resolve the moon's features. This had been the first time I'd ever tried to shoot the full moon at night, so I learned some things.

With a light that bright, it's no surprise at all you are seeing a lens flare. That's just what happens.

I see the camera light reflection, mainly to the right. But to me, the red dot to the lower left appears to stay proportionately affixed in its position at the lower left of the moon. Don't lens flares drift in pictures?

Notice the red object reflection around 0:48 in the video. Got to be a window reflection.

This is what I was thinking. You can see the lens flare moving around as the camera moves, and it is a reflection of both the moon and the red object. But really, the red object looks pretty fixed in the sky as the moon does. Not saying it is a UFO or anything, but I was just unsure of the lens flare answer. Interesting video though for sure! But, the filming through window glass is the more likely answer.

Well I'm no video expert. I simply do not see anything wrong with the video. I went frame by frame several times from :46 to :50 seconds in and I see nothing wrong.

Who knows what it is though.... could be the latest version of Chinese lanterns

I see the reflection around :50 and at other moments, and as expected it moves aound as his camera does.
How could a lens flare stay stable in relation to the moon, while the camera is not stable?
Same question regarding a reflection of the light on the camera on a window- camera moving wouldn't make the light move also?

Hmmm yes I see your point!

Maybe some other light source behind the person then. Or maybe a real object right next to the moon that no one else noticed.
