Probably just something like lightning in the distance.

It definitely looks like lightning. It's just interesting that there were no lightning flashes for the 3+ minutes preceding that one which just happened to come from the direction the airplane (or whatever it was) flew off in. If we could get the 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after footage, as well as footage of a known aircraft covering that same air space I'm sure we could clear this up quickly :)

Also interesting is that webcam is showing stars...  that's a bit unusual...  I'd like to know more.

There are a selection of security/box cameras available that do not rely on built in lights to work at night and use on-board frame integration to create a virtual, long exposure, frame. The camera adds 50 sequential 1/50 sec frames together to create a one second frame and then displays the output. Some cameras can add enough frames to create a virtual 10 sec frame or even longer.

With a reasonable video lens these cameras will quite easily show stars and the milky way. 

With the screw off lens removed and a telescope nose piece adaptor fitted they can provide near live views of galaxies and nebula displayed on a monitor when fitted to a telescope. 

I have a camera using the same operating method and use it with a video lens for meteor watching and a nose piece with a telescope.

This is a camera/ telescope view of Andromida galaxy   -

And also at 2:14 - what would that flash be?  It's like the entire aircraft glows for a second, like it's engulfed in light?  Weird, I can't remember a plane looking like that, or lighting up really big such as that one appeared to.  

edit:  I'm actually quite impressed by this video - until I read all of those comments! :lol:

Last I checked, aircrafts have to fly with three lights on them,  red on left wing tip (forward) green on right wing tip (forward) and white in rear of craft. So if this was an aircraft, we should see the green light on the right wing, unless the "airplane" is going backwards.

In fact, I fit is an airplane, it should also have a right wing LOL  :D

There are a few bleedingly obvious reasons for why you won’t see colour flashes or wings in this case.

Jeez mate! Lol!

Edit: I’ve just been refreshing their page with the webcam and each streamed image is taken at 30 second intervals.

Eg. 07:14:25PM, 07:14:55PM, 07:15:25PM etc. 

There seem to be a bunch of birds flying around at the moment, so please don’t mistake those for alien craft either. LOL :D

Interestingly the two large beams of light that are coming from behind the webcam in the OP UFO video dont seem to appear in todays webcam video. Ill bet an intrepid investigator could find out what event was going on there that night and what those lights were.

Probably car headlights or lights from the restaurant...

From their website:
'Our webcam sits on the north side of the Granary Restaurant and give you a great view of the Teton Mountain Range, and the 13,700 foot Grand Teton in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.'

Whatever they were they were the cause of the flashes of light IMO

The flash of light at the end was not local. It was beyond the farthest mountain in the distance.

I agree there are some very good reason not to see the green light blinking. But in three minutes real time? I have my doubts.

One of the reasons why we can't see the green light on this craft is it appears not to have a right wing. Come to think of it, you can't see the wing tip of the left wing either!! and no signs of the tail section, too. Funny kind of "airplane".  Funny, isn't it, that people will be blinded to such evidences when they really want to be. ;) - and yes, that goes for other people in here, not just you.

But the biggest reason why this is not an "airplane" is - it is all aglow in it's  3+ minutes real time of "flying". Now, I have looked at photos of aircraft flying at night time to research this a bit and I can tell you, they are - as expected, all black. The object we see is emitting light. It is glowing. 

Not singling you out, Timothy, as everyone in here is petrified to bring that relevant information up. But that object is clearly NOT an "airplane".

Mate, in uncontrolled airspace at night it is recommended that aircraft have their landing lights on. Especially if operating VFR (visual flight rules).

Seems your research is confirmation bias only. 

Even controlled aircraft will sometimes operate their landing lights in bad weather/reduced visibility.

Eg. From https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landing_lights

In the United States, for example, landing lights are not required or used for many types of aircraft, but their use is strongly encouraged, both for take-off and landing and during any operations below 10,000 ft or within ten nautical miles of an airport (FAA AIM 4-3-23). According to CFR 14 and FAR Part 91.205, a landing light is required for all aircraft used in commercial operations at night.

So the night vision webcam will naturally show just a bright light and unlikely any other features or colours unless at extremely close range. 

I don’t know if that camera would even show colours in night mode at all. Would have to know the model and settings. 

And it’s not video, it’s captures taken each 30 seconds.

Oh, dear, the first of - I am sure, a series of desperado defenses.  And as expected, as lame as can be.

Well, for starters, TImothy, you have yet to prove this is uncontrolled airspace. I see autos and buildings in the area so it is sure to be radar controlled. Also, the article states (can't cut and paste it) that no scheduled flights were in the area at that time. So I seriously doubt this is uncontrolled air space - not that it will matter in the end.

Sorry, Timothy, but this is really laughable. You *claim* that the webcam will only show a bright light. Right. On the side or the top, all over..?? Get real, Timothy. Here is what it should look like.

Sorry, Timothy, the top of the craft won't be lit up. Nor will the REAR of the craft, the top of the wing. Your excuse is completely laughable.

Timothy will you ever admit you're in deep denial?... and not a very bright detective  :clap:

The airfield is private. Google it. 

You know basically nothing about how air traffic works. You are a complete idiot on this topic.

Are you saying that private airports don't have radar?

I bet you didn't know that Jackson Hole is one of America's favorite ski resorts. Jackson Hole Airport gets a lot of traffic coming in there in Winter.

But Timothy, it's on YOU to prove that Jackson Hole Airport does not have radar. And you haven't done that. Calling me an idiot?? Timothy shame on you. Prove your point before you call me an idiot.

LOL!  Apparently I can't learn from you because you don't know. Not that you will admit that.

This "blurring" that you claim it is(?), how come the "blur" does not extend out to the wing? I can't see it, Timothy. Can you look again and see if you can see either a solid wing or outline of one, or perhaps a blur that is in the shape of the wing?

Show me how smart you are. "landing lights",... on the SIDE of the aircraft with no wings, no tail LOL

Radar ain’t cheap, even ADSB costs a tad.

Not the kinda thing you pop on your front lawn. 

Except for you maybe @Earl.Of.Trumps, you have some serious tech on your front lawn?

Learn about what you try to post about FFS.

Just verifying, as always, Timothy and I and the other numerous contributors EXCEPT Earl... are all correct.

Maybe Earl should spend less time LOL'ing and start LEARNING and LISTENING..

Does anyone else buy any of the rather lengthy and almost entirely 100% wrong 'information' that is being pooped out here by Earl?  I'll be happy to address anything that OTHER people might be tempted to believe - I'm not wasting time on a chronically unteachable biased fantasist.

No need for all that info, Timothy.  Try this. ADS-B Coverage

Clearly Jackson Hole is in coverage. No this is the end all, the end all is trying to locate this crafts wings!

Telling me I am an "idiot" and telling me I should be able to "work it out" tells me one thing... you don't know your ass from your elbow

What will you teach me?  The points I raised are quite valid. Saying that I can just "work  it out myself" or saying everyone in here is right except me doesn't really show that I am wrong, now does it. It just means you moved your lips again.

My  information is rather "lengthy"?? :)   Sure, Chrlzs, meanwhile Timothy posted more in one post than I have in total.  Geeeze, you're not prejudiced or nothing, are you?

My information is terse, actually. Where the are the wings on this aircraft..? the tail section - where is it? 1 LINE and 1 PHOTO is all I need

And Chrlzs see if you can get a PHOTO, you know? like I supplied a PHOTO to demonstrate my point. Can you do that?

Thanks for offering to "teach me",  I feel so special.
