It's been awhile since I tried posting, so here goes. True story:

Amazingly, there has only been one case of this ever happening. And the incident was faked!

So, in fact, there has never been a real case of "this" happening?

Was the faking done by a person / persons?

Did the incident actually involve a person or persons?

So it was an illusion in the sense that the video appeared to show something that did not occur?

Did something invisible apparantly become visible?

Is the video famous?
Am I likely to have seen it?
Commercial video?

Were people in the video?
Did the video take place underwater?
On land?
In the air?
in space?
underground?
In a building?

Did something invisible apparantly become visible? No.

Is the video famous? No. I haven't even seen it and it's my field.
Am I likely to have seen it? No.
Commercial video? No.

Were people in the video? Don't know. Irrel.
Did the video take place underwater? No.
On land? Yes.
In the air? No.
in space? No.
underground? Doubtful.
In a building? Yes.

use of weapons? No.
a dangerous accident? Kindof.
destruction of property? Probably.
theft (Ocean's 11 comes to mind)? No.
a discovery? Only in terms of shock... "Woah, they can do that?", but not some scientific thing.

Was the video made in this decade? the 1990s? the 1980s? the 1970s? the 1960s? the 1950s? earlier?

Did it feature some up-to-date technology of the time when it was made?

Was it made by a government agency? Was it supposed to look like it was made by a government agency?
