STILL IMAGE OF BALL OF LIGHT EXTRACTED FROM VIDEO.


Description: At sunset a round ball of light flew across the sky at very fast speeds changed directions quickly and disappeared into the water. It was captured on 3 different I-phones.

Witness Response to Investigator Questions: It was the sunset on Siesta Key on one of the private beaches. There probably 60 to 70 people on the beach. We noticed it when we were taking photos and 2 other people we were with were able to capture photos as well. It was moving super fast and then seemed to disappear into the ocean. I actually have a bunch of other photos if you’d like them!

Note: The witnesses apparently saw the object. This not the result of anomalies showing up in the background of videos or photos.

Update – June 23, 2017: The witness responded to my questions and it appears that the object was only seen through camera lenses. Given this scenario the object is likely not real and is a lens flare. The original report strongly suggested that the object was seen and then videos were taken.

    It looks exactly like a lens flare to me since it moves when the camera moves.

      The witness said that he saw the object along with two others (who also took videos). If you believe the witness, then the object is not a lens flare.

    In my view, there is not a chance that’s a real object. Just watch the “object” follow the exact movements of the camera. It disappears when the sun is not in the field of view, then reappears when the camera moves back toward the sun. The camera then pans down & the “object” follows.

    • Administrator says:

      Yes, see my updated report. The witness’s original report strongly suggested that the object was seen and then videotaped. The response is clear that the object was only seen through cameras.
