The first time I watched this I saw nothing but the bright sun, and I was looking.
The second time I watched it I saw the image people were talking about.
I'd certainly rule out a hologram. It's filmed directly into the sun. There's no way you are going to be able to illuminate a hologram against
that. And besides, what we are looking at is darker than the sun, not brighter.
I didn't read every single post, but a large number of them and didn't see any mention of the fact that one of the guys calls out Hallelujah (means
"Praise God" and is used by many Christians). This tends to imply they actually saw something with their own eyes.
However, I'd find it more convincing if there was:
1) Other video angles
2) Witness statements
3) A translation of the French that is audible on the video
4) An overlay of various frames from the video onto a single image so that the outline of the object can be made more apparent.
I don't think a hoax can be ruled out entirely, either on scene (the people filming it need not have been complicit) or in video edit later. Its not
particularly convincing of anything, as a video though, which makes me tend to believe it is not an edited video. Fake videos usually offer "proof"
that is too good to be true. This on the other hand is lousy enough quality that it is believable.
I don't think an artifact from the CCD in the camera can be ruled out. However, I don't understand why the person was filming the sun in the first
place. And it would seem to be the case that people on scene were seeing something with their eyes. Unless perhaps the person filming had a screen on
his video camera and people standing round were just reacting to that. That's why witness statements for this one are so important.
As to whether it is Mary, well, I'm not Catholic. Looked more like an angel with outstretched arms to me. Could be anything really. I only saw a
diamond shaped object with what looked like protrusions around about the location where you'd expect to find outstretched hands if it were an image
of a statue of a person. There is some superficial similarity with the typical image of Mary. But as I think 100 ATS members have already commented,
it's not exactly clear.
I did find the Zeitoun photos interesting though, for the person who posted the info about that apparition. I had never heard about that before. I
found that quite amazing. Assuming the photos there are genuine, the image is much clearer. Given the number of witnesses in that case, it is much
harder to try to debunk. And given that there were no satellites back then, it certainly wasn't project Blue Beam, whatever that is supposed to be.
