I have just viewed this video last night at Village Labs.  This is
impressive footage of a domed flying saucer revolving ccw on its axis
and wobbling as it slowly moves to the right of the viewer, then
behind a multi-storied building, then emerges over the rooftop of the
building, then moves behind a second building where it vanishes
from sight.  It looks so good that I would say it needs extensive
analysis to prove that it wasn't an elaborate hoax.

Debunking is always a factor in these cases.

I am hoping that it will be seen widely if it appears to be authentic
footage.  We also need the story from the cameraman.  Jim Dilettoso
does haven't to be the only to analyze the footage, but I think he does
a fair job of it from what I have seen and he is willing to show anyone
his procedures if they want to level criticism.
