Booth, who eventually acquired and made public the video, it was taken by a woman, who made it available to local authorities in Bulgaria, who confiscated it from her.

B. J. Booth of UFO Casebook, who acquired and made public the video, provided the following information:
The video from Bulgaria that you mention is from a longer clip, however, it is, at this time, the only one I have. This is one of those things that someone I know and trust real well pirated from a friend of theirs whom they know and trust real well. Supposedly, and this is all off the record, the video was taken by a woman, who made it available to local authorities in Bulgaria, who confiscated it from her. Luckily she had made a copy of it and placed it in the care of a friend. The film was somewhat longer, originally, but I was told that the remainder of the film only showed the object move farther away and eventually disappear.
My friend assures me that the film is real, and not a hoax. I don't know if you know the way things are in Bulgaria, but one must really be careful there about crossing the authorities, or getting caught bringing film through customs at airports, borders, etc. If you do a search for anything UFO/Bulgaria on the net, you just won't find much if anything.
I held on to this film for quite some time before putting it on the net, because my friend's contact was still in Bulgaria at the time. He has left that country now, and I was confident that he was free from any type of trouble about the film.
