    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I want to know how fast this jet, bird, UFO is traveling at around 1:51. It appears to the right of Dana's head in the interview.


    EDIT: I guess this forum doesn't do embedding?

    2. Relevant equations
    No idea, but here's a screenshot from the video.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Around 600 mph?

    It is too hard to find out its speed without knowing distance from camera, if it is a jet, you *may* guess its size and speed may be obtained with cameras view angle, but it is too hard to find. There may only be guesses i think.

    Estimations are what I'm looking for anyways, I just want someone to either rule out a bird.
