my take on it .... please excuse my english, as it is my third language, so I might not always make sense...
I can understand the light if it is a hanging light, swaying in the wind, and very powerful. The bright line running down (and up) is standard for a
CCD-sensor being overloaded by very bright source (called blooming). BUT, above that light, is this plume, that cannot be explained by me. I know
lens flares, that we can see clearly in other parts of that picture, but that plume, that is what is unexplained to me. It seems as though there is
some sort of a high-pressure steam vent in front of the light, that causes that plume, and if I mask the light out, the plume still keeps on changing
as though it is steam or very hot air, or something, because it keeps on changing, even during the times the light stays constant. (I do deal (and
have dealt) with image processing a lot, and photography, and optics, so I think at least I know how to get rid of lens flares, or other image
processing artifacts). I cannot comment further on the light, but in my mind it is a light on a pole, or something that vibrates, (wind, or other
tremors), that is highly focussed, and almost right in line of the lens, but behind that plume. I have done lots of image processing on hundreds of
seconds on the videos, and can explain the light (IF it is mounted on a pole, or something that vibrates), but the onliest thing that is constantly
there, but changing is that plume...
