Football fan catches 'UFO' flying by as he records Sunday night game
dailymail.co.uk ^ | Nov. 1, 2011 | Louise Boyle

Posted on 11/01/2011 7:14:42 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

It appears there may have been few unexpected guests dropping in at the last minute for one Sunday night football game.

A fan, who was recording New Orleans' Saints play the Indianapolis Colts last month posted video 'proof' of an unidentified flying object.

The video was put on YouTube by a user, who only identified himself as reedickyaluss, from the NFL game on October 23.

Just before the game starts, the camera pans across New Orleans, taking in the distinctive St Louis cathedral with its three turrets, when a flash of light zips across the night sky.

When the video is freeze-framed, an object can be seen with multiple flashing lights, a spherical shape with a rod sticking out the top and moving extremely fast.

It flies down from high in the sky, swoops behind the cathedral and then moves off much closer to the ground.

This isn’t a UFO, there was a show on cable and they examined these types of images on digital video and what they found is that a small object close to the camera makes it appear as if there is a far away object moving at a very high rate of speed.

What we are seeing is three or four images on the digital frame as the lens is focused on a distant object the insect speeds through the image.

BTW - fair disclosure I am a UFO believer.

Maybe because Obama has killed any programs allowing man-made spacecrafts to fly these days?

Nope... I don't think so.

The thing, whatever it is, flies BEHIND the steeple. See the video at 1:25 for example.

> BTW - fair disclosure I am a UFO believer.

Well, I'm not a believer, that is, I don't think UFOs are from outside the near-Earth environment. Certainly not from other planets, much less other stellar systems or galaxies.

Nevertheless, this is pretty cool, and intrigues me. If it's a bug, it's a really big, fast one to get behind the steeple and move that quickly.

If they exist, one would expect them to have made it known
by now.

That game ended 62-7. Way more unbelievable than your garden-variety UFO zipping by. Maybe the aliens wanted to see it for themselves.

The object definitely appears to be behind the spire in at least 1 frame, with the object showing on both sides of it, the middle part being obscured by the spire...

I believe that UFO threads are pulled here at FR.

Just a heads up, I have seen other threads pulled for just being about UFO’s.

Welcome to the flat earth society.

If they exist

"They", is us, and we'll be meeting our place of origin when this planet travels back to the other side of the Milky Way, in some 200 million more years.

I can hardly wait!

I know, and don’t disagree.

But RECENTLY it has been posted NOT to post UFO threads.

I have seen it, I just can’t place the thread I saw it on.

But there have been other UFO threads, yes, but we will see.

I was thinking meteor. The length is clearly aperture time blur, the little “dots” or “port holes” could be digital artifacts, especially with digital picture compression.

I have had the very same phenomenon on my infared security cameras around my house. Sometimes it will just hover in front of the camera and sometimes it zips thru the field of view. It is in fact bugs at night. They either fluoresce or light up as a result of the wavelength of light coming from the camera lense which amplifies dark sky shots at night.

I'm sticking with the bug theory (and not MIB bugs). When the video plays at normal speed, the visitor has the same flight characteristics as a bug at night around a bright light.

It looks like it goes behind the steeple, but it also looks like it makes hyper-leaps where it disappears then reappears a short distance further. I blame the camera or TV.

In a related matter, my neighbors wheels appear to reverse direction when traveling at high speed, so he might be using alien technology.

Well...if it can be identified it's not a UFO is it? On the other hand there are lots of UFOs out there. That doesn't mean it's little green men from mars...just something flying through the sky that can't be identified. This isn't (necessarily) rocket science.

Not necessarily alien. Might be a special mechanism to fool police radar, by making the radar think the vehicle is going in the other direction.

Likely not a rod, due to the object appearing behind a spire in at least one frame.

Initially, I was intrigued, but now I believe it could possibly be an outright hoax produced by time-lapse...

If one other Freeper gets told not to post UFO threads, it won’t be long until other freepers will be told the same. The “protected” gang does not like “fringies”.

It is what it is.

Even the anti-Ecat guys are anti-fringies.
And they have the mods backing. Just a friendly heads up.

I think there are too many anit this and anti that running around mucking up threads, but that’s me.

AFAIK, No one has ever been told not to post a UFO thread unless maybe it came from Rense.com or some fringe website. The Stephenville UFO thread got hundreds of post, never a problem. A science thread that gets a UFO post gets frowned on since it is off topic.

Don’t believe me, that is ok with me. There is plenty of banning of topics around here, if you haven’t noticed.

I know what I saw, and it was months ago, so it is buried pretty deep.

The anti-fringies will kill the UFO threads in their own sweet time. Count on it.

When he plays it at normal speed it’s way too fast to be a meteor.

But he has the pic in stop-motion and he backs away from his TV screen and it doesn't change position. A reflection would.

Whether or not it’s too fast to be a meteor depends on how close it is to the camera. Meteors have been observed entering the atmosphere at over 72 km/sec. If it was a km away moving at 2 km/sec, it would flash across the screen in less than a second.

I understand that a UFO is nothing more than an unidentified flying object. The thing is, the vast majority of people, when they hear anyone mention a UFO, automatically associate with a spacecraft form another world. It's like the assumption that if we think we've discovered an earth-like planet outside our solar system, it almost assuredly has life on it.

I'll have to retract my previous comment anyway. The discussion on Youtube reveals that it is a time lapse shot. One of them claims to see people on the lower left running at "300 mph." I don't see people but I do see objects/lights moving rapidly. Another poster says the photographer who took it was contacted and he says it was a shot taken over several days with a remote control dolly.

I saw two other rapid streaks of light that happened before the one they focused on and wondered why they weren't talking about those and looking closer at them too.

If he can stop-motion then he playing a recording of the game...

so post the recording of the game...

not a recording of someone playing a recording on the TV

...Any recording of that brocadcast should show that same light if it was really on that brocadcast ...

In fact EVERY recording of that brocadcast should show that same light if it was really on that brocadcast
