Video shows light streak – ball lightning or bug?

Doubtful news blip:

UFO videographer ‘saw a streak of light that I cannot explain or rationalize.’

Source: Tantalizing Theory Emerges After UFO Sighting In Lightning Storm

A bright, glowing object appears from the left side of the video that is completely different from the high cloud to cloud lightning in the distant storm. Ball lightning?

Maybe, but a more likely explanation is a bug.

    Might be a reflection of passing headlights if he is shooting from inside a car.

    As with “orbs” and “flying rods,” the lack of focus is a dead giveaway. That means that it’s something small and fairly close to the lens, with a strong reflection from some light source. With still images, that light source is usually the flash on the camera – with videos, it has to be coming from somewhere else.

    In the Wacky World of Woo that’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

    From the sound I’m guessing it’s some sort of fireworks. Maybe a ball from a roman candle.

    If you’re quick enough with the pause button you can see that the “object” passes in front of the tree on the left. Thus, if it really is a physical object, it must be fairly close to the camera. Of course, stray light is not ruled out.

    So, a really tiny UFO, then.

    Maybe a really tiny UFO with wings and six legs.
