Jerusalem UFO | Critical Analysis of UFO Video 1

Further into our discussion of the Jerusalem UFO incident of 2011, we have presented some of the more convincing evidence that suggests the encounter was a fabrication or otherwise a hoax.

The wider UFO community is divided by statements issued by MUFON Chief Video Analyst Mr Marc Dantonio, who stated that in his expert opinion believed the incident to be a hoax – including Videos 1 & 2.   Mr Dantonio is set to release a comprehensive report on the MUFON website in the near future.

So lets take a critical look at each of the 6 videos and highlight some the key traits that many state suggest the incident was indeed fabricated.

Video One by Eligael

The following graphics are captured from the 1st Jerusalem UFO Video as uploaded by Eligael.

Video 1 as uploaded by Eligael
Image 1.1 - This image is captured from Video One of the Jerusalem UFO Incident as uploaded by Eligael. To the untrained eye this looks pretty normal - or does it?

Image 1.2 - At the edge of frame we notice the image starting to mirror as Eligael moves the camera around the scene.
The UFO hovering over the Temple of the Mount
Image 1.3 - Notice the pixel distortions around the edge of the orb of light as it hovers above the Temple of the Mount. This is at 400x zoom. Graphic experts will often look for these tell-tale signs as evidence the object was inserted into the scene. Others suggest this is a bi-product of resolution on YouTube. The original footage would need to be assessed for a conclusive statement to be formulated.
Pixel Anomalies on the 1st Jerusalem UFO Video
Image 1.4 - On the 1st Jerusalem UFO Video the object swiftly darts into the darkened sky where we observe red lights flickering in the sky. If you look at the location 1minute 37 seconds on the video you can see obvious pixel anomalies. There is an unusual angled line as identified by the red arrows and similar artefacts at the location of the red blinking lights.

Interestingly, a well known UFO hoaxer has also debunked the original UFO videos as uploaded by Eligael.  Known only as HOAXKiller1, the individual provided the following statement:

My THEORY is that the background is fake… or something was edited in the video.  No amount of video compression could change the geometry as you see here.  To draw the line on the wall I didn’t only use the edge of the wall to detect where the line should go. I also used the lines in the bricks just below the line, and the tree.  Something fishy is up with this video… and this is NOT the only issue.  The lighting is completely fake as well, but that is another topic.  This time I motion tracked the horizon so that it stays in one spot. Notice how the angle of the edge of the wall changes, but the angle of the horizon stays the same, THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE. Unless he is on a boat, or is in a super large Earthquake, the angle of the horizon and the edge of the wall should remain locked together. Because they don’t, this means the entire horizon is fake. The UFO video is a HOAX.

The Following presents the motion tracked Video produced by HOAXKiller1:

Stay tuned as next as we move our discussion into the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Jerusalem UFO Videos. Now every story has 2 sides, so as part of this venture we will also present the arguments that support the incident as genuine. You are encouraged to actively participate and put forward your own contributions.
