It was filmed in 2014, but apparently released last December. From the Hiroshi Kitajima Space Phenomena Observatory (SPOC) Center.  

Supervisor: Akira Kurosaki, Special Advisor to the Center for Space Phenomena Observatory (SPOC), former Professor at the University of Tokyo

On September 16, 2014, at 16:46, LED-1, an automatic monitoring and visualization device that registers unattended NAP 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, filmed two NAP flying at high speed.

Here is the data of two white shiny UAPs.

Date and time of the photo (JST=UTC+9): from 16:46:51 on September 16, 2014

Recording camera: SID-1Ⓡ Automatic.

LED-1® Robot Surveillance and Visualization Device

The direction from the camera at the point of appearance/the point of start of recording: North.

Camera elevation angle at the exit point/start point of recording: 25 degrees

Location: Minami Senju, Arakawa-ku, Tokyo, 100 m above ground level.

Weather at the time of shooting: Clear.

Temperature during shooting: 27.5°C.

Wind direction and strength at the time of shooting: south-south-east, 3.9 m/s.

Visibility: 20㎞

Two capsule-shaped UAPs, glowing white and positioned vertically, were recorded by SID-1 moving at a significant speed from north to northeast and east (over the Adachi and Edogawa districts from Kita-ku, Tokyo).

At 16:46 on September 16, 2014, SID-1, an automatic observation and imaging device robot that records UAPs unattended 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, captured two UAPs flying at high speed.

Here is the data taken of the two white shining UAPs.

Date and time of photography (JST=UTC+9): from 16:46:51 on September 16, 2014
Recording camera: SID-1Ⓡ Automatic
Observation and Imaging Device Robot SID-1®
Direction from the camera at the emergence point/recording start point: North
Elevation angle from the camera at the emergence point/recording start point: 25 degrees
Location: Minami-Senju, Arakawa-ku, Tokyo, 100 m above ground level
Weather at the time of shooting: Clear
Temperature at the time of shooting: 27.5°C
Wind direction and force at the time of shooting: South-southeast 3.9m/s
Visibility: 20㎞

Two capsule-shaped UAPs, shining white and aligned vertically, were recorded by SID-1 moving at a considerable speed from north to northeast and east (over Adachi and Edogawa wards from Kita-ku, Tokyo).
A similar capsule UAP took off from the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the Atlantic Ocean off Jacksonville, Florida, USA, four months later in January 2015, and was also photographed by an F/A-18 flying overhead with a Raytheon forward-looking surveillance infrared sensor (ATFLIR).

Hypotheses

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

UAV

Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs, also sometimes shortened as BLAH; colloquially sometimes referred to as "drone" or "drone" (from the English. drone — drone)) — aircraft without crew on Board. Created for aerial shooting, monitoring ground objects and other tasks in real time.

Distinguish UAVs for military and civil purposes.

Also they are divided into:

Mounting

Photo editing began to be used almost immediately after the advent of photography techniques. They were divided into methods of photomontage without manipulation of the image after receiving the photo and retouching of the photo itself or its negative (plate, film, etc.)

Birds

Due to the peculiarities of the bird's flight, it is possible to capture a moment in the photo when an ordinary bird will resemble a "classic" UFO in shape.

Airplane / Helicopter

An aircraft heavier than air for flights in the atmosphere (and outer space (e.g. An orbital aircraft)), using the aerodynamic lift of a glider to keep itself in the air (when flying within the atmosphere) and the thrust of a power (propulsion) installation for maneuvering and compensating for the loss of total mechanical energy to drag. 



A rotorcraft in which the lift and thrust required for flight are created by one or more main rotors powered by an engine or several engines. They differ in maneuverability, the ability to hover and almost vertical takeoff.
