If aliens are real then it appears they are becoming savvier at getting our attention.
Early risers in Texas got a surprise when a UFO shot through the sky live on breakfast TV.
Sharp eyed viewers spotted the white light flash across the screen as local station KXAS showed a traffic camera looking across Fort Worth at 5:40am.
Station managers have called in UFO investigators to review the footage.
Viewers speculated that it could be a shooting star or possibly an insect reflecting light from the television tower where the camera is mounted.
But others said they had seen the bright light with their own eyes.
‘I was sitting outside my neighbors house and saw the flash of light in the sky go over the trees. Bill my neighbor saw it too,’ a viewer wrote on the station’s website.
‘This looks more like a meteor that has reached the Earth’s atmosphere but due to the severe stress of gravity at hyper speeds has been redirected,’ wrote another. …
A shooting start that turned was observed and reported in the 1800s as well. I read that in a newspaper clipping in the library at the Roswell, NM UFO museum a few years ago.
Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe this is an image of the tower with the camera that took this footage. Is that little black dot on the top left the camera? We can’t tell what lights it has around it (which might have illuminated a nearby insect) from this photo.
On ATS, byeluvolk, has some good points:
… The camera is not “focused” on the horizon; if so the entire city would also be blurry. The camera is set to a DOF of infinity. This means in theory that all objects will be in focus. However due to the physical nature of a camera lens, as opposed to the human eye, there is still a problem with very near objects in an infinite DOF setup; They appear to be blurry. So yes a bug in this camera at a few feet would appear to be blurry, and it will show up at night being lit from a light nearby and show up rather well. It is not a matter of in focus, or out of focus, it is just a matter of if this camera is on top of a building, and the building has lights atop it (as it must). Then the light is reflected off the bug, and it is not so much the bug we see but the light being reflected, exactly as a bug would appear in this setup. The light mentioned above would also make the supposed bug appear to dim and then get bright again, as it flies below the beam, or further from the source. Then it will get bright again as it either comes near, or flies up into the beam path again.
However not having any idea where this camera is mounted we can only speculate on its physical location, and thus the nearby lights. However going by the video it looks to be on top of a very tall building, and therefore it would have the nearby lights, not for the camera itself, but as all buildings like this are required to have them for safety reasons. …
