Hello Bruce, I have to admit I was seduced by the audio channel which insisted that no changes were made to the camera settings. I forgot about the automatic setting. Note that the author said she recorded the object for about an hour. Would this not suggest that an approaching aircraft would be not tens, but hundreds of miles away? Would the light from an approaching aircraft hundreds of miles away be visible, especially if the beam were not directed exactly towards the viewer? Would the landing lights be turned on that far away from an airport? I enlarged a frame from the video at 43 sec, where you thought the object was in focus. Here, there is still a central/peripheral color separation (beige/green), and the central color has a somewhat rectangular shape. For my benefit, perhaps you can enlighten me on the following observations. The intensity of the strobe-like flicker was greater than I would expect from atmospheric effects. Would the camera have enhanced the flicker somehow? A hexagonal aperture shape can be seen occasionally around the green periphery of the object, but there is also an internal yellow/purple rectangular shape. Which component of the camera might have created this rectangular shape? Was the color separation produced by refraction in the camera? What component would be responsible for that?
