This is strange. I went out around 1PM to do some routine sky watching ....

While I was out there I decided to practice taking video on my new equipment as it is very difficult to get a steady moving shot in full zoom as even the slightest motion will shake the crap out of the video. I am just south of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs and every day there are gliders flying in the air. So I shot some footage today of gliders, sky divers, and a plane.

Anyway while I was looking at the videos, in this one particular video I noticed a small round object flashing light. Almost looks like a rotating mirror.

It comes into the frame at around 26 seconds and you can then see it for the rest of the video.

You can't see the object unless you watch in 1080p in full screen. Watch the lower center-right of the video.

I have taken some zoomed screen shots and it looks like a silver reflective ball reflecting light.

I have been doing a lot of observing of the sky these days and know every object in the area. From balloons of all types, plastic bags, gliders, planes, sky divers, jet lines, private jets, birds, you name it ...

I haven't been able to properly identify this one ...

Any ideas?

So far best guesses are mylar balloon however, if you watch the video frame by frame, it appears to come in and out of a cloud. Which would make the object pretty large.

Footage was recorded w/ a Canon 5D 21 MegaPixel camera using a 100-400mm zoom lens w/ a 2X extender.

edit on 4-10-2011 by freedommusic because: remove embedded video as you just can't see object unless viewed in full screen.

You have to watch in 1080p mode and view in full screen.

You wont see it in the small video frame posted here.

I think you might be seeing things.
Have you eaten lately?

I see it perfectly. It seems to be flashing but that could be reflection on a mylar balloon, though I hope it isn't

Thanks for sharing

Starting at 26 seconds at the bottom right of the frame you will see a rotating flashing/reflecting object.

Whats interesting is that if you walk through the video frame by frame starting at 26 seconds at times it seems to disappear.

It probably doesn't unless you're running it through a video editor program. You can't do a true frame by frame on youtube, just clicking on the seconds marker leaves a lot of information out. I learned this the hard way with a different video that I would have bet a million dollars was not a bug


It's still interesting and I don't think it's a balloon, I think it is something that is just easier for most to declare a balloon

I posted the original video here:
