Cylindrical UFO over Utah? Looks very much like sunlited cloud

Description from the original uploader:
"This UFO was spotted in the sky tonight at 7:19pm the sunset was at 7:10pm this is not the sun or a cloud 4 people witnessed it and could not identify what it was it looked like the top of the sun going behind the mountains but the mountains are far below as you can see and the sun was already down. At approximately 7:43 the object disappeared slowly in the same spot.

The sun or cloud would have moved since 7:19pm the object was seen even before that it took 3 to 4 minutes before that to get the video camera to film it once it was spotted.

It was the brightest thing in the sky easily seen."

UFO? No, probbaly just a bug

Information from UFO

"Location of sighting: Roanhead, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, UK.

Date and time of UFO sighting: 23/07/009 @ 15:49hrs

One of the most exciting and possibly highly significant UFO reports to be sent to me came from a gentleman named Mr Bob Atkins of Cumbria, UK.

Bob was happily playing with his dog by a pool of water at Roanhead, Barrow-in-Furness. While videoing his dog on a mobile phone video camera he inadvertently captured a mysterious flying object in the sky.

Bob told me that the original video is 0h 3m 11s in length, but he cut the first 2 Min 37 seconds so as to leave just him videoing his dog.

Bob explained:

“The object appears in this video for about 1 second and you have to go into freeze frame to actually see what the object is as in normal play it just appears as 4 black flashes on the screen. This was captured on 23/07/009 @ 15:49hrs. In that 1 second the last few frames are the few that I think are most significant.”

As Bob says the object can clearly be seen whizzing across the screen at immense speed. I spent a good while checking Bob’s footage and the UFO seems to be a very solid entity to me with a shiny, light upper surface and darker underlying form below. The speed is impressive too and I would estimate the altitude of the object to be something around less than 100 feet.

Bob added:

”I have no other explanation for this. While filming this at the point where the phenomenon appeared I was facing approximately north. The first black spot appears in the clouds to the left of the screen then goes to the right and then to the forefront of the shots.”

Bob’s remarkable sighting reminded me of my own twister UFO event of 2008, in so much as the defined shape and how the entity suddenly whizzes into sight as if appearing out of nowhere."
