This film has been around a long time, though I've only seen
clips on TV before. I would hope somebody has had a go at it by

The camera is stated to have been mounted on a radar antenna I
think, but maybe "hand directed" remotely even if not hand held.
There's quite a bit of tracking data on screen.

The range azimuth and elevation is presumably radar data but it
isn't very clear. Without graphing it I have the feeling that
the tracking point progresses at least relatively smoothly from
az 219 el +01 to az 296 el +39 in 2 min 35 sec between 23 20 39
and 23 23 14 (presumably this is UCT as it appears to be
daylight) so the erratic motions of the object look to be due to
jerky camera tracking.

The range (RNG, top right) changes from 006955 to 009135 which
is difficult to interpret because the distance from the
camera/radar is obviously reducing not increasing. Perhaps this
is showing target distance downrange from some reference point?
And does anyone know what the units are? Feet or meters, it's
only in the range of about 10-30 knots which isn't fast. Could
it be a cluster of balloons maybe?
