The balloon has been hanging in the air for several hours over the city of Oirschot (North Brabant).

An eyewitness writes:

Bright and light cross-shaped in length and width. When I took the picture, a spherical shape was visible, which was swinging back and forth. I find it strange. I live in Boxtel, North Brabant. It hangs motionless with my naked eye in the air for several hours.

The illusion of movement

Our brain, based on the experience of perception, takes the characteristic of approximation / removal of parameters depicted object for real movement. The illusion may work on circular objects, if they caused the picture imitating the play of light and shadow when rotating a round, flat object. At the same time, if you focus on a single site, the illusion of rotation on it immediately disappears.

This principle works not only when moving the head, but the motion of the person, if the picture of such a principle is found in the elements of the landscape.

The heavenly bodies

The brightest heavenly bodies in the sky are Venus, Jupiter, and sometimes Mars and, of course, the Moon.

Venus is the bright yellow of the evening or morning star, shining in the sky on the background of evening or dawn. Maximum brightness of Venus can reach up to 4.3 m, and she is the third brightness of the sun in earth's sky after the sun and the moon. It so well reflects the light of the Sun that it is relatively easy to see and day, especially if you know the location. It manifests itself in the form of tiny blinking white dots.
