The object in John Velez's video quite distinctly appears to both
descend and move away from the viewer.

First of all, the video stills that we have access to have been
mediated by several processes: they have experienced an unknown
number of generations, recorded from a television, etc., and to
top it all off they have been JPEG compressed.

I have increased the saturation in the still I have access to and
I do notice a blue region somewhat centered around the object.
It is not really a bar it is I don't have both stills at the
moment, one is at home, and I was a little irked when I visited:


to find that they had been removed in less than a week.  It would
be interesting if the blue hue appears centered around the craft
rather than be fixed in nearly the center of the image.  It could
be video distortion, or even a hoax artifact.  However, the
presence of the blue region is only relevant if it is present in
the original footage.
