Look... up in the sky...
UFO? I dunno.
UFO - China - video powered by Metacafe
But the last few seconds make you think.

Possibilities, in my opinion:
a. It's evidence of extraterrestrial life.
b. Somebody's Air Force is packing some serious shit!
c. Amateur video hoaxing (special effects, etc.) is entering a stage that would have made most people brought up in the 50s go completely ape. This looks strangely like that famous UFO footage taken next to the WTC by a helicopter pilot.
Personally, I think Bigfoot just got his personal jet pack.

Obvious hoax. That last split-second flash is horridly fake-looking.

Okay, I was just being a smartass. I recall watching a show on Discovery Channel the evening before "Signs" opened in theaters, showing blatantly how 3 Brits have mastered the art of creating crop circles. They showed, using a crane-hoisted camera taking one shot every 16 (or so) seconds, the group of 3 creating the mother of all crop circles while employing 2X4 boards and sections of rope.
The moral of this story is that most people go about their lives paying attention to feeding their families and doing whatever they think is right. How many people devote much time to devising cunning ways to disseminate frauds, hoaxes or cons? Damned few (outside of the MSM).
One day we will have a TV special showing how you can fake a brilliant UFO against a blue sky. Maybe we'll see how that famous Bigfoot film was faked (or not). But most of us are at the mercy of the A/V geeks who knew from the 9th grade how to make UFOs look real.
No disrespect, Linda, but there is so much "credible" UFO footage out there that this is just another bulb on the Christmas tree.
If you like UFO stuff, read John G. Fuller's "Incident at Exeter." That will creep your heart out. This stuff is standard YouTube fodder.
You know I love you anyway...

Aw Kevin, you can be a smartass anytime you want!
I've seen a lot of footage over the years, and while some of it looked good, I've never quite been able to believe that I was looking at a real spaceship.
Kinda like the photos of ghosts that you see everywhere.
This one was... well... kinda fun, so I posted it.
I will look for that book though, cause I like being creeped out.

It was taken in China? I will see if I can convert it to an mpeg and go frame by frame.

Looking at it frame by frame it just doesn't look right, both the shadows and sunlight does not match. If it was taken in China why is the time and date in the corner in English?
The "spaceship" in the frame doesn't match up from the one frame to the next when the lights come on and when it disappears it looks like a smudge in one frame and then nothing in the next.

I see it doesn't support remote images? Try this:

Good job DoubleU, completely debunked.

Bad CGI. I tutor my kid's High School robot league in Photoshop and 3DStudio and they can do better than that...
