Looks a bit like flying hat to me.

It looks like an inverted ceramic bowl.

Your see-through bowl is likely a compression artifact. 

If we assume the film was intentionally made to follow the "UFO", then why isn't the UFO centered at the beginning of the film? 

Later in the film, the photographer seems to zoom in on the object just before the object departs to the top left.  Yet, there is no attempt to search for the UFO in the direction it disappeared.

Image persistence, rather than compression artifact, can cause a double-exposure see-through effect.

However if there was a persistence problem the landscape would be smeared by the camera movement,
and the image of the UFO (if a real moving object) would leave a trail.
