From Mysterious streak of light appeared in the sky over Vietnam had a translation of an article from Vietnam presumably:

Mysterious streak of light appeared in the sky over Vietnam

Translated from CLIP: Xôn xao vệt sáng lạ xuất hiện trên bầu trời Quảng Ngãi

On the night of October 1st Nguyen NT (living in Tinh Ky Commune, Quang Ngai City) posted a clip on his personal Facebook page with many pictures of a rather strange light streak appearing in the Quang Ngai sky in the afternoon of the day September 29th.

According to Ms. T., the light trail was accidentally recorded by her around 5:30 pm on September 29th. The band is bright red like a shooting star, but it doesn't move.

“A lot of people think that at that time the sun was setting, so there was an image like that. But the image I filmed appeared in the east so it couldn't be said that the sun had already set. The light strip appeared red at first, there was a bright red color. the tail was like a shooting star and then it melted very quickly "- recalls Mrs. T..

Le Thi My (who lives in Quang Ngai City) said he also saw a streak of red light in the sky 3 days ago. It was late afternoon the trail looked like a big shooting star the red light was very beautiful. "Some people think it's a sign of a big storm," My said.

According to Mr. Nham Xuan Sy, Director of Quang Ngai Hydrometeorological Station, with the initial images provided above it is still impossible to conclude anything. "If this image is true, then this is a very strange phenomenon, appearing in the sky for the first time in Quang Ngai," commented Mr. Sy.
The Vietnamese article has three photos and a video:

The first video, I first saw on a Telegram channel Mister_x_1993forever, but fortunately someone uploaded it to Youtube.

Spontaneously I would say Crepuscular Rays

A phenomena you occasionally can observe at sunset or sunrise (often when the sun already has set/ or not risen yet), but due to geography (distant mountains) or (most often) caused by distant towering thunderstorm clouds, these optical phenomenas appear. Often pretty, kind of spectacular and unusual.

(3D) Notice:
mobile phones sometimes have a nasty habit of screwing with the tones in a scenery - especially the cheaper ones, but not solely - because they are making the image too contrasty, and overexpose a scenery with bright rays in the sky (or similar).

The limited dynamic range of a tiny sensor, plus the jpg engine in the phone creating "false"colors and transitions in sunset/sunrise photos (Such as creating darker colored rings around an area that is very bright. Like you see in the last photo @thorbiorn posted from the Vietnamese event). A real DSLR camera often gives much better image quality by showing more gentle transitions, more lifelike and closer to what the naked eye sees, if the photographer handles the image files in post processing properly (which means; not screwing around with the contrast too much)

Photo Tip: Another way to capture the scene, even with a mobile phones, would be to underexpose the scenery preferably with RAW, so that the bright rays are not overexposed. Then in post processing, you lift the shadows (making them brighter), in order to accomplish a more true lifelike image, without the nasty artifacts that otherwise appear in the highlights (like in the 3rd and 4th image below, where the rays are totally overexposed, creating strange artifacts in the photo (also called "blown out highlights"), which usually don't not exist to the naked eye.



Here is an example of Crepuscular Rays

Thank you for the explanation, and for sharing your knowledge about the sky, camera types and settings. I tried to take a closer look at the situation following your suggestion of Crepuscular Rays.

We learned that:
On the night of October 1st Nguyen NT (living in Tinh Ky Commune, Quang Ngai City) posted a clip on his personal Facebook page with many pictures of a rather strange light streak appearing in the Quang Ngai sky in the afternoon of the day September 29th.

Vietnam Tam Ky.png
Knowing the place, I wanted to find out about the Sun. The app called LunaSolCal will give data about the Sun and the Moon. I tried to add Quang Ngai, but it was not in the database, then I tried Tam Ky, which is 60 km to the North, measured on a Yandex map. In the Yandex map, I can play with the ruler and learn that Tam Ky is the equivalent of 50 km straight north and 30 straight west of Quang Ngai. In the app, I can move back in time to September 29 and learn that in Tam Ky the Sun set at 17:36 Indochina Time. This means that in Quang Ngai the Sun would be setting close to the time of 17:30 since:
According to Ms. T., the light trail was accidentally recorded by her around 5:30 pm on September 29th. The band is bright red like a shooting star, but it doesn't move.
The difficulty with the possibility of the phenomenon being crepuscular rays is:
“A lot of people think that at that time the sun was setting, so there was an image like that. But the image I filmed appeared in the east so it couldn't be said that the sun had already set. The light strip appeared red at first, there was a bright red color. the tail was like a shooting star and then it melted very quickly "- recalls Mrs. T..
The Sun sets in the west, but this appeared in the east. If the statement above is true, there is also a phenomenon called anticrepuscular rays:
Anticrepuscular rays, or antisolar rays,[1] are meteorological optical phenomena similar to crepuscular rays, but appear opposite of the Sun in the sky. Anticrepuscular rays are essentially parallel, but appear to converge toward the antisolar point, the vanishing point, due to a visual illusion from linear perspective.[2][3]

Anticrepuscular rays are most frequently visible around sunrise or sunset. This is because the atmospheric light scattering that makes them visible (backscattering) is larger for low angles to the horizon than most other angles. Anticrepuscular rays are dimmer than crepuscular rays because backscattering is less than forward scattering.
If anticrepuscular rays is a possibility, then one can look for images that look similar to what allegedly was recorded in Vietnam, at least if it was close to real. On | EarthSky there is one image that resembles: "Jenney Disimon in Sabah, North Borneo, caught these anticrepuscular rays and a rising moon – and posted them to EarthSky Facebook – on June 4, 2015."

Oh thank you for bringing up the anticrepuscular rays, @thorbiorn - it never crossed my mind (due to lack of knowledge about those type of rays).

So wow 💕 (the beautiful side of networking)

I will now read in more about them, as well looking for more photos (I am curious how to distinguish the opposite types visually) and then see if i have ever seen such anticrepuscular rays myself.

Judging from the last photo you posted, it does in character even more resemble that the Vietnamn phenomena was of anti-crepuscular origin.

Thank you again :flowers:

Jet Black UFO in the Summerlin Area During the Day
Oct 28, 2021 Steven Barone
I shot the photos for this video from my backyard in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas, Nevada, on Tuesday, October 26th, 2021. I have to wonder why so-called leaders waste so much time on things that don't benefit the planet or humanity while at the same time incredible things like this are happening every single day all over the earth. Because of this, it's doubtful to me that extraterrestrials would be that interested in communicating and cooperating with us. I think we have to evolve a lot more before we're truly ready to become part of the cosmic community.

Also from Barone of Las Vegas.

I shot these video clips from my backyard in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas, Nevada, between 2014 and the end of 2016 with my Luna Optics Monocular and my Canon HD Camcorder. There will be plenty more to come. Thank you for hanging in there with me. Things have been slow, but I am still motivated. This video is a small way to thank anyone and everyone who enjoys my videos. Cheers to all of you!

Plane passenger caught UFO during flight over Lake Michigan, Grand Rapids area
Nov 1, 2021
On October 17, 2021 during a flight from Boston, MA to Denver, CO a plane passenger recorded a UFO as they flew over Lake Michigan, grand rapids area. The passenger recorded the object for about one minute before it disappeared from sight on its eastward cruising path. It did seem to change elevation or speed. The object which was white and cylindrical had no features. No wings, No windows, No tail, No exhaust, No flight surfaces. Did the passenger accidentally filmed a so-called tic tac UFO? original source: www.mufon.com video and photo editing by Behind The Scenes

What are these unknown flying objects
Oct 30, 2021
There are many unknown objects flying through our skies and people are increasingly wondering what these objects could be, like an unknown dark rectangular shaped object about 300-400 feet in the air over Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, obvious no balloon or kite since there was no wind or the Illuminated disk and cigar shaped objects captured over San Antonio, Texas, Minneapolis, Minnesota and Conyers, Georgia, yet a bright unknown light moving fast from west to east in northern sky as well as a strange line of 3 lights moving very fast at high altitude over North Vancouver, captured in night vision British Columbia, Canada.

Ufo sulla Roma-Civitavecchia: avvistate luci misteriose in cielo
Ufo on the Rome-Civitavecchia: spotted mysterious lights in the sky

Bizarre floating 'UFO' spotted hovering above Glasgow
Nov 5, 2021 The Sun
A BIZARRE floating object which appeared to fly through the sky has left onlookers baffled. Lynsey Currie spotted the strange shape soaring over her flat in Glasgow - and her boyfriend quickly filmed the odd spectacle. She told Glasgow Live that it was flying "from the northwest of Glasgow towards the southwest" in her footage. In the clip her boyfriend can be heard saying: "It's literally a UFO because it's unidentified. It's coming by us." Meanwhile, Yorkshire has been revealed to be the UK’S UFO capital, with more reports than anywhere else. Some 200-plus have been "spotted" there in two decades - including a glut this year. Scores more were reported in the summer, including three in four days. UFO-watchers claim they may be drawn to the region’s open spaces and mountainous terrain. Sightings in June included a "black triangle" hurtling above Leeds, with "no noise or lights visible".
