A film of a strange light in the sky taken by a farmer in New Zealand has become an internet hit.
"(I) drove up the farm in a truck and seen a large object bigger then my truck hovering 20 meters off the ground at 2000 feet away," he wrote. The video which is posted up on Youtube was filmed on June 2nd and posted a few days later.
Rotorua Astronomical Society vice-president Brian Hurren says the video - which is about 90 seconds long - may be anything from an out-of-focus star to an unusual plasma ball. On the website the man said he saw a strange light above his farm and drove towards it to get a better look.

But to the observer its all that matters at that moment in time. The best thing is to enjoy all that you see Try to explain it to only yourself.Then remember that you got to see something unique. To tell others that you know more than them id futile. To just be Happy with your own sighting and curiosity is Bliss. Too many people are wound way too Tight to understand the simple joy in Looking up !

Nothing conclusive. UFO - Yes Alien in Origin? - Highly Debatable.

If you open your mind too much, your brain will fall out. Now that would be interesting. Yeah? There's a very narrow opening to the truth, and not a wide open highway mate. But in order to first comprehend this, you must first realise the truth of “YOU”. For “YOU”, is the tainted source out of which everything unfolds. Until there is some concrete evidence I challenge you to prove anything/anybody from anywhere other than here has been here. Direct experience is all there is my friend. The testimony of a witness is acceptable evidence. In any case, everything is self-revealing. The nee... [More]

Well, the tone of their voices tells me that they saw something unusual, possibly made more amazing by chemistry. The video itself provides zero info, but they tried. Like I've said before, it's photographers like these that are the most likely to capture the real deal. But that won't matter if the technique is terrible like 99% of them are.

How do you know it is hoaxed? What if they were stoned when they saw it?

Forgive me for getting mighty sick of absolute junk like this, but seriously... Let's take a moment to consider the context, shall we? 1. No direction or accurate location given, and he is 'too busy' to respond to enquiries (although I have to ask who would bother asking him, given this dreck). 2. Leaves truck running and violently shakes camera around. When object allegedly zooms off, there is absolutely NO indication of that- the camera makes no attempt to move in a particular direction, and neither does the object, as it seems to simply fade (obscured by tree or horizon, perhaps?). 3. He 'd... [More]
