Interesting observation! I too have seen lot's of video and
stills of alledged UFO's and have never seen a film capturing an
object appearing to move away from or toward the camera apeture -
always seem to be filmed laterally traversing the field of view.

ALTHOUGH, if the object were coming toward you - OR - travelling
away at a high rate of speed there would be little profile to see
and therefore such a sighting might not actually catch your

there are many unreported sightings that go unmentioned because
the episode was so fleeting and random that most people figure it
must have been something else. Not to mention the fear of
