All this time reading ATS and I finally have something to add.

I work at NBC here in Fort Worth. The Camera in question is on the OMNI building in downtown Fort Worth and at that point was facing just a bit South of East. So generally you are looking down I 30 toward Dallas.

The camera has no light source near it.

I have watched that camera, and adjusted it, more times than I can remember. If it was a bug, you would have thought I would have seen something like that before, but I have not, ever.

I do not know what it was, but I wanted to add or clarify some information here. The camera was not pointing toward the old Carswell and I do not believe it was a bug, because at least once, I feel like I would have seen something similar.

Oddly enough on Monday night at about 9:15pm coming home from a blowout Ranger baseball game my son and I saw the best meteor I have ever seen. I was traveling on N820, near Rufe Snow heading west.

Maybe just coincedence but odd none the less. This link has some information and a video of the meteor. There were several sightings over the course of a few days.

When first saw the NBC Skycam video, I thought oh wow, they caught the one I saw on skycam, but my meteor never turned like that, it broke up into two or three pieces just before it disappeared..

Thanks for clearing up some things, I hope you'll stick around all through this thread

Otherwise I'm going to quote this post on every page

Hi Fullblast,

Thank you for your addition to the story, and for the clarification on the cam, and the lighting.

That is very relevant information!

just my 2p but I don't see how it can be bug or a meteor.

bug: it looks like it's in the atmosphere not in front of the camera. You can tell this because it dims as it goes behind the city smog/clouds and does it's 90 degree turn, then it reappears from behind the smog/clouds and shoots out of shot and the fact that this is slightly sped up also disproves the bug theory where as the speed it moves at supports the ufo theory...

Meteor: as far as I know they don't do 90 degree maneuvers like that.

All of you saying bug or meteor I suggest you go back and watch the clip again, from start to finish... this is a good one IMHO... not that it's worth much


METEORS DO NOT Do 90 degree angles...

Neither did this...

It is 2 meteors one looking as if it is coming straight down and another one
looking as it came the other way...



Well we are in the throes of two meteor showers the Delta Aquarid meteor shower and the Perseid meteor shower. earthsky.org...

Just because you doubt it does not mean a damn thing.

This technology can AND DOES exist.

Perhaps it will take a personal encounter to fix your ignorance - that's what did it for me.

I would think that would be straightforward to check. I wouldn't expect the roof of a building to be completely dark, but you would need a fairly bright source close to the camera.

The other thing that occurred to me is a firefly. It doesn't move or flash like the fireflies around here in the D.C. suburbs, but there are many different species, so I couldn't rule it out right away. However, it is reasonably in focus, so it's not right up in the lens, which appears to be focused at infinity.

Right now, I think the bug hypothesis is hanging by a thread.


Its speed is relative to the distance from the cam and if we cant determine its distance there is absolutely no way we can know its speed, we can only speculate it.


I wish more people understood this.

Ok- to all the 'bug' people- why just one? Is this the only bug in Texas? And how is it being illuminated? We know there was no light source near the camera (why would there be on a lock off shot of a city at night?).

I know the unexplained is scary to all you desperate debunkers out there, but try and come up with something at least logical to dismiss everything with.

Experts are predicting a "celestial traffic jam" in the sky this week. As we gear up for the year's best-known shooting-star event, the annual Perseid meteor shower, another event, the Delta Aquarid meteor shower, may prove more spectacular.



As far as i know there are no Meteors that can perform like this....

You must be delusional!

Surely if this was a bug, we would see more of the same thing. Bugs are everywhere, and they must pass by that cam many times, so why do we see this only once. I don't know what it is, but people have to take that into account before they believe its a bug. Just seeing it once makes no sense to me if it was a bug.



Maybe because people see similar and think, "Oh, a bug, how uninteresting" and don't bother to make a thread about it.

Im not so sure about a bug, a bat maybe but I don't think that either. One question I have for the bug theory: The video initially is time lapsed slightly you can tell by how fast the cars are moving...so can a bug even be filmed in this manner? I don't know if I'm articulating what I'm trying to say correctly. The second slow down seems to accurately show traffic movement and the "bug" is still moving extremely fast. Hopefully some video expert can decipher what I'm trying to say.


Edit: Also wouldn't bugs be a common sight on this cam or common enough that it wouldn't have people at the station making inquiries to ufologists over?

It was a "Live" camera view on the news -- not a time lapse. The cars don't look to be moving particularly fast (I mean not too fast for cars on a highway).

I think it obviously looks to be just a bug -- possibly passing in front of a light that may be near the camera.

Are "fireflies" and other pests like that even flying around at 5:20am? I assumed they came out near dawn and hunkered down for the daily slumber well before 5am.


Yes, much more likely to be an alien space craft zooming past a news camera otherwise unnoticed, rather than a firefly staying up a little past his "bed time".

Maybe the bug had some red bull earlier, or was stressed from an argument with the wife?

I think most people who are familler with surveillance equipment would call this a bug straight off.

The only odd thing to me is it doesnt go below the horizon line.

Two possibilities:
1. It could be 2 separate meteors and a bit of a coincidence. Unlikely, since I can sort of convince myself that we're seeing one continuous object. However, we aren't seeing the original video here, but YouTube.
2. If a meteor or piece of space debris is moving right down your line of sight, it is getting a lot closer very fast. It may appear to brighten or to zig or zag a bit at the end of its trajectory, since it is much closer than when you first saw it. It would take some analysis to rule this out.

Okay, okay.

What about if we all agree it's an extraterrestrial bug, will that stop the retardation?

Moth.

J/k if you guys really want to believe it's some advanced technology, cool. I assume it would have to be unmanned and controlled by a sentient ai because a human couldn't react that quick. Errr.. I dunno... Still don't care. Hope it's aliens but I doubt it. Still looks like a moth to me lol.

I can't explain this video great find OP, In my opinion Bugs/Moths/Flies don't glow "orange" or move that fast unless were living in an area like avatar
. Im no expert so would like to see what the others have to say
. Great find though SnF.

It is a bug. There is a light behind the camera. The camera casts a shadow. The bug flew in from above (in the light) and then in front of the camera (in the shadow) hence the fading.

That was obviously a weather ballon flying through swamp gas which was reflecting light from the moon causing an optical illusion due to atmospheric disruption...
