So these five YouTube videos have been bothering me for quite sometime
First one shows this guy with what seems to be an object at early day time

The second video is the second video from this person showing to be the same object
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLwV8IUskwk&feature=channel
The third is the same object with two smaller objects

The fourth is of an object near the sun

The Fifth is a video of an object in January seen in Lake Ontario

What steps have you taken to research these videos on your own? What information can you give about them?

I have tried using Stellarium but I couldn't find anything. That's about it though

Anyone who uses video from a shaky camera and then zooms in to make the object blur and look larger should be immediately ignored. It's obvious from the title they have an agenda to fool people who don't know better.

As for what it is, without frames of reference and some honesty, it's impossible to say which planet/star/aircraft or whatever it was. They want you to think it's something that it is not, so there's not going to be a way to validate its true identity.

Added: the last video, one of the last shots zoomed it, looks like Mars. Right coloring, and possible ice cap. But again, that;s not what they want you to think...there's no mystery there, and videos of scary Planet X stuff gets more hits than "Look at my video of Mars".

I only wasted my time on the first one. Supposedly it is Norway, on some date, no specified time, no specified direction, with a bunch of stupid music, and then some sort of "filter" on the video (I assume a digital filter of some sort, also completely undescribed).

It is not worth dignifying with speculation. I suspect it is Venus, but who knows. A mystery naked-eye visible object pops in the sky and among the tens if not hundreds of thousands of amateur and professional astronomers on the planet, not a single one notifies their fellow astronomers. It is too silly for words.

Now I'm putting on my moderator hat.

Rand45, I'm going to quote exactly what you were told on February 5 for an almost identical thread.

Do not post every single crazy astronomy video on Youtube and ask "what is this". In the future, you need to limit yourself to significant videos (you will have to make that judgment) and all such posts will have a proper link, a brief description of what is in the video, and very specific questions from you (or a statement on what you think the video proves). If you do not follow this, you will be infracted. To encourage this, you are getting a "friendly reminder" zero point infraction for this post.
I'll give you credit for the links, but your descriptions are way too brief, and "what is it" is not a specific question, especially for a set of videos.

I'm going to close this thread. If you wish to ask about ONE of these videos, pick one, do a better job with specific questions and a description, and start a new thread. But I think the few posts you've already gotten in this thread should be showing you the kind of questions you should be asking yourself first.
