I suppose if UFOs could do anything we couldn't rule out a video
that shows a UFO with a line above it...since the UFO could have
created the line within the elctronics of the camera to fool us.

In the Mex. Ciuty video..what really attracted Sainio's attention
was the remarkable correlation between the motion of the camera
and the motion of the UFO. That is, if the camera moved up, the
UFO moved up, etc.  This tracking was not perfect but very good
implying that either (a) the UFO knew which way the camera was
about to move and adjusted its position in the sky accordingly or
(b) the UFO modified the electronic signal within the camera to
make it appear to move with the camera. An alternative is that
the presumed hoaxer wasn't perfectly accurate in compensating for
camera motion when he electronically pasted the UFO image onto
the (presumed) real video background (that had been obtained
first, so the UFO could be added later).
