That's my guess too, but there are artificial looking black dots in that location for a few seconds before the white puff shows up. Weird.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

I'd like to go quietly in my sleep, like grandpa did. Not screaming in terror like the people in the back seat of the car he was driving.

I watched that 4 times and still don't understand what you're talking about.

Are you referring to the tiny light dot that appears on the house at roughly the 6:14 mark, or the larger white blur that occurs at the 6:20 mark?
 Quoting: Ponytailjones 12283392


yes! and you don't find it strange?
explain what that was if you don't find it strange.
 Quoting: Nevyn


Well, you haven't answered my question about *what* it is that YOU think is strange.

The little white glowy dot that appears at about 6:14, I have no idea what it is, but the larger white blur that almost obscures the house at 6:20 is very obviously water on the camera lens.

So yeah, I have no idea what the little white dot is, but I don't find it any more strange than people who claim they see newscasters eyes turning into reptile slits in fuzzy, artifact filled, low res video.

Show me an anomaly on a high res, clear video shot, and I'll be glad to be amazed. But video anomalies go hand in hand with crappy, low res videostreams.

Wait wait wait,

I stand corrected...

The water drop wen THROUGH the TREE because of the wind obviously and stayed the same shape MOSTLY.. HOWEVER when the water droplet passed THROUGH those tree branches not disturbing them, it left some of its "water" suspended in mid air(i thought of lens flares being made from the light of the water droplet) luckily that water droplet turned around and came back for those "lens flares", once it gathered them back into itself, it continued on its way.

It can't simply be a drop of water moving across the lens. If you watch around 5:35 or so, you will see the house in the distance. You should see the white blob and the flash of the electrical line snapping. Now you also see the same view at the 6:20 mark, at a different angle from a different camera!

hover the mouse of the timeline of the video, when you get to 5:31 click it.

That's clearly a water droplet going through a tree and then coming back and putting itself back together and then leaving.

Ok, this is what I see. 3:39 we get our first view of the neighbors house in the distance. Around 3:51 the intense burst of light. 4:00 more light and neighbor's house actually smoking and being destroyed.

4:36 closer view of neighbor's house, a bit more grainy footage this time. 4:41 intense light starts. 4:50 more light and the house is smoking and being destroyed.

5:26 side view of neighbor's house, this time in color.
5:31-5:32 something like a cloud shoots by.
5:37 it shoots back and approaches the house.
5:40 a flash of light followed by a second flash of light to the left around 5:42. Lots of light at 5:50.

Also notice the color of the pool cover, it seems to be reflecting light from overhead.
Notice how the debris is blowing from side to side and then when whatever hits the house, the debris is suddenly being
blown toward the camera.
Each camera is recording the same neighbor's house from different angles. You see the same two flashes of light I think, with a lot of light also over head.

I think there is a phenomenon other than water droplets on the lens, but it may be entirely natural and electrical in nature. Point science at it, I say.

I think something was happening there that we can't explain. I don't think it was water on the lens because it was captured on multiple cameras, whatever it was. It seemed to be like ball lightning I think. I know a tornado can destroy a house but I don't see what could make it smoke like that unless there was electrical discharge either from snapped power lines or lightning.

I know in the upper atmosphere we get weird lightning called sprites. Also we've had a lot of solar flares and CME's lately so maybe this could cause the weird weather and have some sort of weird lightning effects.

Whatever this was though, almost seemed conscious of itself in a way. We know that tornados are weird, sometimes destroying most of a house but sparing one room untouched. Or it might skip a house but destroy everything else. Sometimes they pick people up and move them many feet but don't hurt them. Tornados are just weird and we can't really get too close to study what is happening.

Did you see it pass through the tree @ 5:31?

I'm not sure how ball lighting travels nor sprites, if you have seen how they travel can you let me know if that's how it does travel in 5:31 of the video, please.

I've read that our atmosphere is becoming lower or at-least cloud ceilings are lower now then 100 years ago or whatever, with you saying high up there, sprites lighting is up there. With the atmosphere becoming lower or cloud ceiling becoming lower, do you think that the once high up there sprite lighting can make its way down here? I'd think it's possible but not common.
However the thing in 5:31, goes through the tree and then comes back and leaves.. also if you notice keenly, when the light passes through the tree, it seems to leave behind lens flares and when it comes back, it travels the SAME path and if it's like it collects those lens flares and leaves the current path just to hang out for a second and then leaves.

Have you see the footage at 5:31 that i'm talking about?

It was a drop of water on the camera lens. Landed on the glass, jiggled for a moment, then was blown off by the high winds.

Coincidently, the house blew apart and sparked at nearly the same time.

Neither incident, when taken separately, is remarkable. But, put them together and the freaks of GLP have a orgasm.

I find it sad how humans can sit there and think that water droplets can fly THROUGH a tree, keep its shape, leave behind something that looks like "lens flare", come back and gather those lens flare back into itself then hang out for a minute and then leave.

Yup, water does that when gravity and wind come into play. thanks brother.

Re: Family's surveillance cameras rolling as tornado hits West (whoa @ 5:31 &anomoly @ 6:20)
Ok everyone,

I have sat here an studied this video for quite sometime, however i'll still be studying it as the more the better.


this is what i've concluded.


It's in no way any type of water known to mankind on this Earth. If others have information on water droplets that we don't know, please do tell.


Now, starting at 5:31... Something does pass through some tree branches, keeping its shape. From what it appears, it leaves behind some "lens flares", it turns around and comes back into the picture frame traveling the same path, appearing to gather those lens flares back into itself. It then looks back at the house, does some flash and leaves.

This is when things become even more interesting,

It appears that some light/flashes appeared in the woods near the house, on the roof of the house and another beside the other on top of the roof. that's is three lights/flash clear as day, now if you take a closer look between to the two "box" shaped lights on the roof, there appears to be a light-being thats tall and slender. At this time, it appears that the light/orb from 5:31 that came back to flash and leave, did exactly that, it appears to flash/light/strike whatever is on-top of the roof of the other house, when it does flash them, they disappear for the most part beside alittle outline of brighter light that can be traced through the light at the bottom of the house, as if whatever was on top of the roof was blasted down and fell towards the ground outside the house.

I know that sounds alittle odd but i put the video in full screen and slowed it down alot and it is just weird. This has to be one of the best videos i seen that really needs to be explained.
