Recently Russell Crowe shared this video with his Twitter followers:
The star of Gladiator and Les Miserables stated, “UFO? Time Lapse Photos THESE ARE REAL! A friend and I set camera to capture fruit bats rising from Botanic Gardens, this was a big surprise.”
In the time exposure video, a flat white object moves across the upper portion of the screen. A red beam of light appears to radiate down from it. The video is from Crowe’s office in Sydney on Woolloomooloo Bay. His office sits on the pier directly across from the botanical gardens. There are many explanations for the images including glare from the camera lens or photoshopping but Russell Crowe insists that he did not photoshop them.
The explanation offered in this video is most compelling:
This largely explains the strange images that were captured. Had he captured fruit bats, what would they have looked like in the timed exposure?
