Yes.  He claims.

He lies.

It's lights from passing cars. Long exposures turn them into lines. There is some sort of reflection or refraction inside his camera causing an image to appear twice, once at ground level, once in the sky.

Shouldn't a director know more about how cameras work?

One person commented on YouTube: "Common RC. It could have been more believable without all the editing. Just raw footage would have made it viral.

Common youtube commenter. It wasn't video, you tool. It was time lapse.

Also of interest, Crowe's new movie: Incident at Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens opens this summer.

Just start singing at them, Russell. It will probably have an effect similar to Slim Whitman.

I want to see the version mentioned here (Cracked article, but tell me that doesn't sound awesome).

After watching Les Mis, I am quite positive that Russell cannot sing anything

Passing car, Crowe is attention whoring or flying bug causing "rod" effect.

So, self-portraits, then?

I LOL'd at headline.  In fact almost had a coffee out nose incident.

Subby, you <past tense verb> that headline!

Was this your Mad Lib? It's pretty good if you start it with Russel Crowe in all cases.

<crazy but popular celebrity actor> says he <past tense verb> a <noun> on his <noun> while he was <one-word location>  trying to <verb> <plural animal>.

Sadly thats one of the best UFO pics I've seen.

The fruit bats must be trolling. They are bored and need the lulz.

/Fruit is not a challenging meal, you know?
 
2013-03-06 12:34:06 PM  
Fruit bat with multiple light system attachment flying by.
 
2013-03-06 12:44:30 PM  
No fruitbats were found, but one Hollywood dingbat is now back in the news.

Aren't we getting to the point that

a) almost everyone in the first world has a video camera that also makes phone calls

b) any 10 year old kid can download a copy of Photoshop or After Effects and create any UFO sighting they want to

c) the government has cameras everywhere and can see everything

d) the government totally sucks at covering things up

...and yet we still haven't met any green people. I'm not saying they're not out there. The vastness of the universe makes it almost impossible that they aren't out there. But there's a great difference between them being out there and them hanging around Earth farking with us.
 
2013-03-06 01:18:02 PM  
UFO = Unidentified Flying Object, that is to say: An object that is flying, but we don't know what it is.

Flying Saucer = No longer unidentified. It's a saucer. It's flying. It's now an identified flying object of unknown origin.

Extraterrestrial Spacecraft = No ambiguity here. The speaker is saying that they definitely know that the object they say is a vessel from somewhere other than Earth.

There's nothing wrong with calling something a UFO. That's what it is. The term is quite literal in its meaning: "I don't know what that is, but it's an object and it's flying."

If that script had ever been filmed, I'd bet the heirs of Barry Sadler's estate would have sued for a big chunk o' money, because the plot is basically the same as his Casca series of books.

I'd still have watched it though, just because the idea is so wonderfully absurd.
