Fast walker craft caught on drone camera

- [ ] Within the past year I took on fun hobby of drone flying. I live in a beautiful part of Connecticut and I have a few places I enjoy flying because of the incredible scenery and also the lack of any major interference which allows me to travel further and cover more area. One day I decided to watch some footage of a fairly remarkable flight I recently captured a few days prior. What made it remarkable was it was the furthest that I have ever flown the drone up till the current point in time. As I was watching this fairly uneventful footage my eye catches something race past the screen at in insane rate of speed, which at fists glance would appear to be a bug which flew past the drones camera very closely. After close examination of the footage it appears that I caught the elusive “fast-walker” on footage. The video shows that this object appears from the extreme horizon which I estimated to be at distance of about 6 miles. The object headed almost dire! ctly towards the drone (Northbound) in a banking motion, as if it is investigating the only other craft in its immediate airspace, then the object disappears from frame almost directly underneath my drone. And all that happened in 1.3 seconds, which means this thing was traveling at a cool 20,000 mph… Yes, you too can see this for yourself, as I uploaded this onto YouTube for the benefit of all. Please note that I am not a professional video editor, I put this video together with a limited amount of a/v knowledge and equipment.
