Thats no moon! Its a space station!
So I did a little experiment with my smartphone camera (8.0MP HTC Evo which takes really good videos as well as pics.) I got the same effect as the
gentlemen in the orignal videos with the red lens flare that corresponds to the camera being moved.
See my video here.
My video of the Sun
Now as of now I see no object (or second sun) close to Sol as of 11:00am Eastern Standard Time here in Ohio. Also I looked at the moon phases for May
12th and 13th when the orignal videos were supposedly taken and the moon was at about its 49%-50% phase and only half visible. Whatever he captured
on camera was NOT
the moon. Also I'm pretty sure the moon is in its waning gibbous phase so its hours away from any sort of conjunction with
Also the moon reached its perigee on May5th-6th and would of been HUGE
had it been caught in this video.
Here is a useful website that shows where the moon can be seen, as well as the sun at different dates/times. The map will open with the Day and Night
World Map, click the link that says "See where the moon is over the

Seeing as how the object was covered by the clouds when they passed by, this gentlemen either is very, very good at editing video, or there is
something very fishy going on in our solar system.
I always make it a point to check out the skies, especially on a clear night out in the country where there's no lights. I use google sky map to pin
point planets, stars and such. Venus was huge the other night, and I've seen Jupiter when its super bright..but theres no way even Jupiter could
appear this large even at its perigee with Earth.
Also this site
claims Jupiter is in conjunction with the sun on May 13th, 2012. So this being
said, that rules the biggest single object besides the sun (that we know of) in our solar system appearing on his camera as a giant body next to the
So..either he edited the video, had a friend do it for him, or this needs to be examined by experts.
