Out there originally wrote: Everything about this video suggests authenticity. In Portuguese, the men are talking with such surprise and excitement that it is hard to believe that they have faked this. Of course, there is always that possiblity, but the video shows no obvious evidence of it. Dropping fireballs have been a feature of a number of recent videos from different parts of the world.

Normally, this part of the website doesn't authenticate videos, as it states on the Out There page, but Mr. Strieber sent this one to some of the experts he works with. Here are there opinions:
Whitley it's real hard to tell. I wish people would upload these full res as
YouTube has the ability for 720-1080p.
It looks great but I noticed some popping effect when it first comes out of
the cloud. The cloud is real and I don't see any added volumetric. But I
wonder if the popping is pixels in the compression or his added effect if
any. It's hard to imagine that someone talented enough to do this would let
a popping or jerking go by.
I looked and looked for reactive lighting in the clouds from the bright blue
light flash. I stared at the edges of the clouds trying not to notice the
internal flash and didn't see any. But this is broad day light and we might
not under these conditions.
The light brightness looks a bit off to me. But then again who is to say
what it would look like it just looks too much like a Sci-Fi movie effect.
But it sure has that odd feeling and look to it that you and I have both
seen. Much like the Camarillo video I shot it gets super bright and drops us
little probes. Again if we could get the real video and analyze it proper
I'm sure we could no one way or the other.
It strikes me as an effect. The "fireball" portion of the video looks especially suspicious to me. The glow does not seem to illuminate the interior of the cloud, nor does the lens flare seem accurate for the camera or conditions. That's not a scientific opinion, just my personal take.
The light does not diffuse correctly in the cloud, but the big issue I have is at 39 seconds, just before the black truck passes left to right - the ‘UFO’ disappears - a poorly timed ‘edit’ by the fakers I suspect…
Mr. S. has taken a direct interest in this and will inquire about it with Brazillian UFO investigators.
