The following video was recorded by a Photographer in North Carolina USA in January 2019.
“Yesterday while walking around outside looking for birds to film and photograph I noticed a strange flashing light in the sky near an airplane. It was moving slowly in the sky, a little slower than the planes flying around.
I could see the random flashing coming from the object for about 10 seconds. I tried to film it with my camera. Using my GH5 and Leica 100-400mm lens I was able to grab a few frames of the object.
I did not think I captured it at all because the focus would only hunt and not lock on. When I got inside and checked the footage I was blown away by what I saw. I have no idea what this object is. It is pill shaped with bullet headed ends.
This is in rural North Carolina just outside of Greensboro”
The photographer makes a follow-up video to further explain his footage here: https://youtu.be/jL0_d9uQanc
The obvious explanation of this sighting is some form of weather/ solar balloon (example here). There appears to be something resembling a tether attached to the lower end.
However, I cannot find any examples of a close match.
I include this sighting as an example of excellent reporting of a UAP incident.
So many times you see posts of UAPs on social media or Youtube that have no provenance. That is, no documentation of where, or when the clip was uploaded, who took it, and what the back story and actual experience were.
In this clip, the photographer does an excellent job of providing as much information as he can around the incident.
