The actual footage in its original content was sent to the FAA for further review. UFOlogist and investigators please be patient. Let FAA do their review in fairness to all.
It does not move. Looks like a reflection. Your ideas welcome.
This is a VERY good analysis of the video. Thanks to the comments below and this piece, I think it is safe to say this is not a UFO but an unidentified (at the time) internal reflection. Not something in the air outside the plane.
[...] airplane windows are different from ordinary house windows. For one thing, the panes are not flat but instead slightly curved, which can alter and distort images seen in them.
Furthermore, objects outside the cabin are viewed not through one pane but instead through at least two transparent panels of glass and plastic; this creates an overlaying double reflection of lights from inside the cabin.
The image is reflected once by the plastic near the seat, and once more by the thick laminated glass on the inside of the window itself, a few inches beyond. The result is a reflection that often appears as a duplicate image, depending on the angle of the viewer.
Indeed, this effect can be seen in the ‘UFO’ video.
