Image #1

Glowing saucer filmed near an expanding contrail?

Answer: Lens flare. 

I watched the artifact  move according to the direction I moved the camera.  Although it is not obvious where the sun is in relation to the camera lens in this video still, and it may even appear that the sun was obscured by the contrails and clouds, it becomes evident that the sun was indeed shining and reflecting off the camera lens when one views the video footage in it's entirety.  Like video footage, photographs can produce similar lens flares that may be mistaken for "UFO's" and other objects when taken out of context.  

Hopefully, by presenting examples here in the IFO Database of lens flare images that I have come across in my own research, other researchers may use this information to compare and analyze similar images found in other photographs, video footage and video stills.

Enlarged Image #1 of "glowing saucer" near an expanding contrail. (Domed top slightly visible.)

Answer: Lens flare.

By describing the object as a "glowing saucer" with a "domed top" "near" an expanding contrail the viewer is influenced to see a flying saucer with a dome on top presumably flying at the same altitude of the expanding contrail.  Although there never was a "glowing saucer" with a "domed top" anywhere "near" the contrail, the use of subjective/biased labels and descriptions may subliminally influence the viewer to see a "dome topped, glowing saucer" high in the sky in the video still or photograph.  The viewer is led to see what the writer sees or wants the viewer to perceive.  Biased research and reporting can lead to biased interpretations and biased perceptions in others.

Further enlarged Image #1 of  what appears to be a "glowing saucer" near an expanding contrail.

Plasma-like emissions visible beneath and around "saucer" object.

Answer: Lens flare.  The "plasma-like emissions" are actually another effect of lens flare.

Pointing out alleged "plasma-like emissions" supposedly surrounding the "saucer" object, further influences and misleads the observer/reader to see something that was never there in the first place.  How many times have you been subliminally influenced by those using subjective/biased terminology?  Once?  Twice?  Never?  

Think again.

Image #5

Image #3 of "glowing saucer" solarized.   (Emissions seem more prominent when solarized.)

Answer: Lens flare.  Special effects alter various hues and tones of a photograph/video still creating a false image.  There were no "plasma-like emissions" near the "glowing saucer" because there never was a "glowing saucer" to begin with.  Various shades of the lens flare change color when solarized but this is still a false image not a "plasma-like emission".
