Crystal Otero and her husband saw something in sky over Bayonne last weekend, which they describe as a “red, fireball like object”.

The video quality isn't great, but you can see a light that seems to appear and disappear, unlike a star or planet or airplane.

Here's the thing: when you use the digital zoom on your phone's camera, the quality drops drastically. I'm inclined to think this is just some sort of lens flare, since they're parked right under a bright streetlight. Countering my own argument, however, is that you can see another lens flare bounce around the screen, but the "object" seems to stay fairly stationary.

What do you think?
