The red object moves in zigzags before flying away

The following statement was provided by user u/heyitmightbevee :

I was taking some pictures of the sky on a tripod with a long shutter speed when I saw a moving red light. Initially, it was moving in a straight line and at about the same speed as the plane, and then suddenly disappeared. I didn't see it accelerate, it just disappeared. I saw several topics about similar observations in this subreddit, so I decided to share it here.

I don't think it was a drone because it was too high, but also not high enough to be a satellite. I didn't hear the sounds of planes either

Original news

Red object zig-zagging before flying off

I was taking some long exposure pics of the sky on a tripod when I saw a red light moving. It was initially going in a straight line and around the same speed as an airplane before suddenly disappearing. I didn't see it accelerate, it just disappeared. Saw some threads about similar sightings on this subreddit, so I thought I would share it here too.

The following submission statement was provided by u/heyitmightbevee:

I don't think it was a drone because it was too high up, but also not high enough to be a satellite. I didn't hear any airplane sounds either

Objects in motion, captured on a long exposure

Most often this artifact is called skayfish if the lens gets a passing bird or insect. It is based on the discrepancy between the speed of the video and the frequency of the flapping of insect wings. Essentially, each video drops a few strokes of the wings of an insect, which when viewed looks like "arrow", provided with long protuberances. The motion of the insect by its translucent body seems to "boom" and vibration of the wings give the appearance of bumps.
