Couple catch strange orange light on video

HBCC UFO Research received a video clip today (March 19, 2003) which was taken by a couple of witnesses from their residents in Oshawa, Ontario on March 18, 2003 at 9:10 PM Eastern Time. What it shows is the Moon, in which they were filming in the first place. But then something else showed up on the film after they brought the cam, and tape back inside to view. They sat down to watch what they took and noticed an orange colored light around the Moon. As it was cloudy out, which can be seen clearly in the video clip, this light seems to bounce around on the film.

I have sat and watched it for a while, and I am thinking that the "light" may be from some other light source, "earthly". But I am no expert at breaking down a clip from a tape. Why I am thinking this light may be of an earthly origin, is due to the movment of the cam at the time, and the light moving with the cam, or the Moon which was being filmed at the time.

I having the video clip checked out and I am sure this should help in finding out what this light is. If anyone else would care to view the clip, which is 485 kbs, you are welcome to contact me at
