Okay, I had watched this particular video a few times and really liked it. The quality is good, the content is good, it does a good job of covering the Chilbolton and Crabwood Farm House crop circles, and it features an appearance by Paul Vigay, the cracker of the Crabwood disk code, who died not long afterward under mysterious circumstances.

I was deleting a lot of stuff that had accumulated on my favorites list when I stumbled across it again and decided to give it another viewing, thinking I might stick it somewhere on my site.

And that’s when it happened. After viewing this video I don’t know how many times and never catching it, this time something caught my eye around midscreen beginning at 3:14, as the producers were flying over the Crabwood “alien face” crop circle and shooting footage for the video. I watched as it moved to the right in a roughly horizontal trajectory and finally off the frame at 3:19. It is visible for 5 full seconds, travelling at a constant, moderate rate of speed.

To be a little more specific in terms of the UFO’s location within the frame: if you draw an imaginary line across your screen horizontally at the midpoint, and another one vertically at the midpoint in order to form four equal quadrants, you will be watching the upper right-hand quadrant. If you consider the top of your screen to be north, the bottom south, the right side east and the left side west, the UFO exits the treeline at the midpoint of the screen, pretty much where that white tower is located on the south side of the treeline. Then the UFO traverses the field where the crop circle is located, moving east-northeast, passing just to the right of that black pylon in the crop circle field and contining along a steady course and out of the frame.

Is this just the shadow on the ground of the airplane or the helicopter that the film crew is travelling in?  Judging from the shadows of the underlying ground obstructions, it is in about the right location. It is also moving in the same general direction, and travelling at around the same velocity. So that is surely the most plausible explanation.

There’s only one problem, however. If it’s simply a shadow, then why is it glowing? Where is all the luminescence coming from? In fact, when the “object” first enters the frame, all you see is the luminescence, but that is also coming from a darker field of view, or back-ground, so the aircraft’s shadow itself might tend to be inconspicuous at that point, leaving only the peripheral luminescence visible to the naked eye.

If the film crew’s aircraft were really shiny, say unpainted aluminum or pehaps metallic silver in color, with the sun behind it as it is throughout this sequence, would it result in a ground shadow that’s ringed by reflected light?

Honestly I don’t think I’ve seen that effect before, and I’m certainly no expert image ana-lyst, so I’m asking you: what do you think?
