Well... I can speak as one since I've been working professionally with that for the past 12 years. But I must say that it isn't so simple. At a
first glance the shadow (it's a self shadowing and not a drop shadow) may look inconsistent or off but if you pay attention to the mountain you will
notice that the shadow is on the right place, and it's intensity should be a bit stronger since the body of the UFO is smaller and less "spread
out" than the one of the mountain. So we can't say for sure this is a hoax by looking exclusively at it's shadow.
Usually the best thing to check for to validade the authenticity of this sort of thing is to look at noise/grain patterns over the object and
surrounding areas, these usually don't match up 100% when they are digitally modified (composited). Something that without access to the original
file with it's full resolution and without further encoding gets trickier if not impossible after further compression is added to a video source.
By looking at this video as it is I must say that I must stay over the fence. Can't say it's real nor that it's fake.
I do wonder however why people that record such sightings never release the original source files to the public for further investigation. This would
make everything easier since the level of input would be way bigger and for most part impartial.
The fact that it came from a TV network adds nothing to it's credibility in my opinion. There are loads of TV stations that would do anything to
increase it's audience and shares. Like CNN did during the Gulf Crises were "reporters" acted out entire coverages in front of a blue screen as if
it was real.
