UFO Over New York?

Post image for UFO Over New York?

I got up this morning at about 2 a.m., awoken by a strange dream. Somewhere around 5 a.m. I noticed that there was a strange round object in the sky. I thought at first it was the reflection of my computer off the window. But then something else strange happened, I felt an odd presence watching me somehow, like a beam coming through the window, and then I grabbed a camera and started recording. And this is what I saw looking northeast.

00:29 – I zoom in on what at appears to be a star.

1:34 – It looks like a flaming ball.

3:43 – I pull back and zoom in on it again.

5:42 – I pull back as it becomes a fiery triangle.

8:05 – I zoom back in on it and it has become an object that looks like a planet or a molecule.

9:50 – It becomes more angular and bright.

15:00 – I zoom in and it starts to look like a molecule, or perhaps the death star, or a jellyfish, or a popover, or the planet Saturn or…I’m not sure what.

Now I’m sure the scientists among you will provide me with whatever reasonable explanation there is, provided that meteors, or distant planets, or nuclear explosions in space can be thought of as reasonable. I myself was somewhat sleep deprived and looked upon whatever phenomenon was occurring with a sense of mystical appreciation and wonder.

Perhaps it’s a planet, since Venus and Jupiter and Mars are visible this month in the eastern sky. Perhaps it’s a star, and this is what a nuclear explosion in space looks like, which also might make sense. Maybe it’s a meteor flying though space.

It does look like a planet, for a while at least. And then it changes, becomes more liquid, becomes more fiery, seems to breathe and change shape, and does appear to be burning, and sort of beating like a heart. Then it becomes more molecular, changes shape again, and so on.

At one point after I had concluded this video and was uploading it, I looked through the camera again, zooming in on the light source as it shuffled thorough a rapid series of geometric shape changes, square, triangle, hexagon and so on. This alas is not shown in the video.

All that said, what is this? If you have an idea, please leave a comment and let me know.

Here’s some stills from the video.

Oh, sorry. I just realized the timeline is counting minutes, not hours. Anyway, it looks really weird.

It can’t be Venus. Look at the times when filming began and stopped. Too many hours for a planet to stay in the same position.

I have pictures of intelligently designed structures on the moon. No bullshit

Venus is the bright star to the east just before sunrise. It’s a new addition to the sky this fall. The abnormally may just be your camara. It would be really cool not to be Venus but try it out on Venus 9\20\2015 while it’s the brightest and see if your camera does the same thing…or is you recognise this star as the one you filmed. Good luck! Hope it’s paranormal

It is indeed Venus, no question about it. Try to catch it lower on horizon before the sun starts to come up and it looks spectacular. Really awesome sight

To me it seems like some kind of portal…. when it is round it is almost like looking down at another planet (through a lense). Crazy I know but that’s what I see. A mystery for sure.

If the point source illuminates the inside of the lens, then why were there so many instances during the video that it wasn’t illuminated and the texture and details of the object could be seen? Is it changing position in the sky? It looked to me like it was always in the same spot in the sky. If it was Venus it would have slowly moved from its original position as the earth rotated, no?

Very intriguing video!

Tony — Our friend, Professor Marc Cooper, explains it thusly: It’s Venus. The point source illuminates the inside of the lens? In any case, Venus is very bright this month in the eastern sky in the hours before dawn.
