Obviously you don't understand sarcasm that well.
At 14:54. I'm tired of spoon feeding you images. Go look for yourself and address what happens for the record.
I see what you are talking about, it is hard to tell from the shakiness of the cam, but I think I have an educated theory.
What you are seeing, as people have already stated, is the object crossing the screen then turning toward the camera.
Now, if this is in fact an aircraft, the illusion of two lights coming together can be explained.
You see what appears to be 2 lights, right? And we can all agree that at least one of the lights is flashing?
Disregarding the landing light for a second, aircraft are equipped with position lights, a beacon, and a nav light (basically one of the position
The nav light is white and is located on the tail, it has a pretty wide viewing angle, but can't be seen when viewed from ahead. So if this is
in-fact an airplane, it would be reasonable that we can see this white light from a side angle.
The beacon is a flashing or rotating red light, often times found on the tail of the aircraft. This can account for the flashing red we seem to
The other light, I suggest is the left-wingtip light, a flashing red position light with some risidual bleeding of the landing light as the airplane
turns toward the camera.
Call BS and stretching it if you want, but this is an honest and very likely explanation. Plus I wouldn't spend all this time making up nonsense when
I've been in the thread so long trying to figure stuff out.
EDIT: I know it is hard to visualize, and it should be. The camera isn't of good quality, and we all know that in low-light cameras tend to blow up
points of light and lights near eachother bleed together. Add that to the fact that the camera work is terrible, and that it is zoomed in way too
far, you basically get a giant glob of light with a few frames where you can designate multiple lights. So take this how you want, I'm not saying it
is or isn't a plane, I'm simply providing an explanation of how it COULD be one.
75 percent of people will not read this...too long didn't read.
