I just jumped into this thread. Only on page 4. So sorry if someone has mentioned this.

Could this be an artifact of auto-focus? The effect seems limited to the 'whispy' thinner areas at the edge of the cloud. My thinking is that the camera in both videos could be trying to focus through this area of cloud attempting to 'lock on' to something. Which in turn is refracting the light into the lense from different points. In essence changing the position of the light source relative to the observer.

I dont know thhe capabilities of the iphone though. It may not have auto focus. In any case could movement of the camera in the hand have the same effect when combined with the wind up there?

This could also give the mechaincal feel of the movement IMHO.

lmao;


I agree, sprites or some other phenomenon related to electrical discharge.


So it's exactly what it is then, unknown.

Perhaps a weaker cloud being discharged of any remaining charge into the larger cloud?

Looks like camera tracking in After Effects along with the
Liquify distort tool.

Youre a liar and a fraud and i call you out. Anyone can plainly see that there is a drop of water or rain on your camera lens or a pane a glass you are shooting video through. This is the kind of hoax and disinformation that is the root of why no one cares or believes aliens exist.

DNA or it didnt happen.


The OP didn´t recorded the video you genius... It´s not his YT Account. Learn to read and think before you reply.

I think its just weather. I mean bolts of lightning come out of clouds.

What a weird and interesting phenomena!
Probably not anything related to aliens though but rather the strange physics of our atmosphere? I can observe a very similar thing happening on top of a hot coffee cup (the surface of the coffee) and I urge everyone to see that for themselves! It is also exiting to watch and it took some thinking before I understood it and maybe something similar is happening in the skies...

You may be seeing hints of the borealis.



Not possible. There are lots of good sights, some from researchers here in Alaska that will explain them. You will realize why this cannot be the case if you take time to learn about them.

...uh...swamp gas...mixed with...uh......

Seriously though, this is pretty cool. Its becoming harder and harder to tell if video/picture has been modified in some way by photoshop these days. If so, then trolled.

But it's pretty damn weird, if unmodified. With all the crazy stuff we see in the sky, I wouldn't be surprised if it was legit. As for the 'normal' cloud behavior explanation, this looks a bit too unnatural for me to assign to 'normal' just yet.

Triforce? Link must be having a field day up there~

Just looked and IPhones frame rate fluctuates wildly.

link to blog and benchmark tests by someone trying to develop a product.

I've seen mention of this before in fact to do with another odd video.

Also in regards to image stabilization ...


Stabilized video may look blurry if your camera was set to record using a low shutter speed and the camera made fast movements while recording. For best results with stabilizing video, set your camcorder to record using a high shutter speed. This can eliminate blurring artifacts when you stabilize.

Large objects moving across the screen can also cause stabilized video to look erratic.


This has something to do with CMOS sensor that is using a rolling shutter. I think I've read somewhere before this is an issue with these devices. What you may be seeing here is long lapses between frames due to both things.

Or not???????

seen something do that but without the clouds, it looked like a rounded stubby flying spotlight/drum

At last, some photographic evidence of something weird going on.

It looks like sprites but the altitude is way too low.

Top vid!

OR did they???


This was my first reaction when watching this LOL.

I still think the way the big cloud seemed to take a portion of the other cloud in the older(second) video points to something...if compared from start to finish of the video, there is a good sized chunk that looks like it was absorbed into the big cloud.

OK, I just confirmed that iPhones have issues with the rolling shutter effect.

Here is a video about that topic with those type sensors.

Someone is poolside shooting a video into the sky (there's your first clue) through a narrow corridor (and your second clue), and not bothering to read this thread isn't it obvious that it is all the wider of a sheet of glass the videographer was able to shoot through. Like a class project he realizes when he moves around a backlight shooting at a certain area of clouds also lit by the sun he can dupe a series of glares to look like clouds. Yawn.

Nice work probably found by accident while trying to do something else, why else would someone be shooting clouds, especially poolside.

Something to do with Iphone Apps, or added apps more like, but also something to do with minimal frames as you pointed out, since all the other clouds other than the central part, (the focus of the video) hardly change frame by frame. But it cannot be an accidental effect, as videoman was videoing a perceived phenomena, and does it twice, with almost the same scene..no the same scene. It's effing fake.

So according to your theory, a drop of water is clinging to a pane of glass that is tilted at an angle? Or maybe the building in the video is leaning at a 30 degree angle? Come on. Be more observant.

I can squash this pane of glass theory very easily. At 1:04 you see a wide beam of light move to the left. If this were being done through a pane of glass just above the camera, this beam would also be seen in front of the building to the left. It does not do this. It goes behind the building, which is really good evidence that this is actually in the sky and not a lense effect or pane of glass in front of the camera.

Seriously, some of these explanations are laughable, and the aggression with which some of you are presenting them makes me think you have an agenda.

In the other video with this phenomena, the camera is being held vertically. Are you going to say they are holding a pane of glass vertically in front of that camera and a bead/drop of water is magically clinging to it, defying gravity?

I think if all we had to go on was the OP video this would be a good explaination, but with the second video (posted several times in this thread already) of the exact same thing at a different angle and type of camera, it shows that its most likely not just a camera lense effect.

And this doesn't even make sense. Maybe he/she was sitting at the pool, saw this phenomenon and THEN started to video? And what narrow corridor? Its a building to the left and a balcony to the right. That's not narrow, nor is it a corridor.

why are you wasting time with his phone, when there is another very similar video posted which is unrelated to the first? Are you assuming both videos, from different times and places, are filmed with identical phones and exhibiting identical effects?...

It drives me nuts when people dont read all the thread before posting...

I agree the first vid looked fishy until I saw the second one. Pretty interesting...

This is why I was going after autofocus in my last post. Most everyday camera users never switch their autofocus off and it can cause problems. This is why any 'lights in the sky' UFO vids we see are always blurry, because autofocus can't resolve the point of light.

With something like a cloud which has many, sometimes semi-transparent layers, autofocus can struggle and over/under compensate while it decides which area to resolve. Which could give the effect were seeing.
