What was it, the uploader asks. What was it, indeed!

I hope this is real… I don’t yet know if it’s real footage or not, but if it isn’t CGI then this sighting is well and truly within the Way Cool class. And it is a certainty that not too many happenings populate that  category, so I’m excited.

As are others. Even Jim Oberg likes this one… that’s significant, trust me.

He had this to say about it, (and more), at this ATS thread

Some steps are obviously needed for verification, but because this blip appears to pass BEHIND the solar array, it must be at a significant range and has my interest. I’d definitely call it unusual and not your typical spacecraft-shed dandruff.

This video was sent to us from an anonymous person who was recording the ISS live feed. The UFO rises over the horizon, makes a smooth turn, flashes light a few times, moves behind the space stations solar panels, and then disappears out of view! What was it??

In order to see this properly you should definitely watch it in full screen and at the highest resolution of 720p, as it is really quite small in the frame and you’d surely miss the very sporty rising up shenanigans entirely.

As for the timings of the events listed in the description above, you’ll see the little light rise, straight up, apparently out of the atmosphere, at 9 seconds to the  the left of center on your screen, just to the right of a small star(?) that is itself just over the horizon. At 21 seconds it has turned sharply right and then goes off to the right just above the Earth’s edge. It is also a possibility that the rising up bit is from behind the Earth.

Either way, though… it’s all good and this thing must be quite large if it is truly at the apparent distance.

Just after it settles into level flight, we see flashes of light, seemingly a tad intermittent.  But they keep going off in their own time; and when they do, the object goes faster. It is really cranking by the time it gets all the way to the right. I am thinking a lot about that speed… and the distance it covers in the short while we see it. Be real handy to know just how far it travels and how far away it really is.

The speed is simply mind boggling. WAAAH!

Need to keep an eye on this thread, for if the verification sought by Jim and We the Serious pan out as to the authenticity of this footage and it is there on said footage from the original ISS source – then this is huge.

Ah, see! The speed was just calculated at the thread by ChaoticOrder, who came up with a result of 292,392 kmh at the end, which is 181 683.966 mph! This persons work was then bashed by Oberg due to “assumptions in the methodology” but was defended by ChaoticOrder. All I can say is that it’s booking along pretty good.

Indeed.

If it is a creation it is well done; and if not, well, then I wonder if it’s ours. Seems much more likely to me than that other possibility if only due to it’s behavior. It could surely be so and if it is, as I say in the sidebar, “My regards to the Admiral, Langley.”

And by the way, dear Langley, if you are indeed listening, please consider letting us all in on it, I think it’d be welcomed.

Alright, then,

Peace.

HOAX!

Dammit, I just KNEW this’d bite me and I’d regret posting it. I just knew it.

I feel sad about this. I feel like such a fool.

Please forgive my epic fail, let this be a lesson for you all.

Here is yet another hoax on YouTube…
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5o0go2QW-g (shown above)

After hours of searching, the date of the event has been discovered. The video was recorded on November 30, 2010.

Video from the ISS on that date has been checked, and the object is not present in the original live feed. The object must have been added with computer special effects, and is fake.

The video also seems to have been flipped vertically, and mirrored horizontally to increase the difficulty of indentifying it.

Here is a video of the live feed, possibly the source video used to make the hoax. Watch around 11:48

Seriously, I apologize. To all of you.

Unidentified-crop1 - WTF is this?!

This picture was made in 1954. I cropped it in Photoshop from the frame below, which is a screen capture from the first video shown below  It has bicubic smoothing and auto levels and contrast, so you know. Lazy me. No filters on the full frame one. Click ‘em for the original size.

The clip in question is apparently an Air Force film taken in 1954 over Sierra Nevada, California. It is shockingly short. One would think, as is oft mentioned, that if you were to actually see something like this outside the window of your seat on the plane; and you have a movie camera, which you’ve started, that you might think it’d be a great idea to film as much of it as you can, for as long as you.

Right?

Wouldn’t you?

Really?

But, no, we get about 3 seconds.

Anyway, so far, for me, this is the most fascinating clip – by far. I want to know what that thing is. It’s as simple as that.

Looks a bit too ‘solid’ to be a plasma critter, but I know not what such beings can do. Maybe it’s a regular critter of some unfathomable genus. Doesn’t bring forth any thoughts of a machine of some sort. Looks ‘wrong’ for a probe…

Fascinating.

Unidentified. Yes, it certainly is.

What in the hell is that?

I found and singled it out of this monumental video compilation made back in the day by Michael Hesemann which a friend of mine participated in. Epic in length, this film has just about every film made from the 1950s up to 1998, from all over the world. You will see hours upon hours of short streaming clips and listen to them being examined on the fly by two expert commentators. It is a fabulous guided tour of things seen in the sky. There is no dogma to speak of presented here, either and that alone gives the film a refreshing (and these days, sadly rare) quality.

I saw this back then, but that was a long time ago and it surely is nice to run across it again… and to be able to download it.

UFOs The Footage Archives – 50 Years of UFOs – Part1 (Michael Hesemann)

I didn’t know this was on YouTube, as I don’t often look for any UFO stuff there, as everything I seem to see there, for a long tine, now is just silly, so… I was pleased to learn of it at ATS. Brought back great memories of what unfortunately seems more and more like a long time ago, so I replied. Here’s most of what I said there. (A rare thing, these days, sadly.)

ats avatarI can say that this film “happened” pretty much as your mind’s eye envisions, as one of the commentators is a personal friend, Antonio Huneeus, who together with his bud, Peter Robbins, watched these movies and talked… pretty much as you see it.

Ah, man, those were the days, eh? Don’t think we’ll see it’s like ever again.

But, then again, both gentlemen are still active in the UFO field, and probably Hesemann, too, so…

As to what they are… some of my speculations anthropomorphize things a bit, although I’m a plasma critter guy at heart for many. Maybe your ‘friend,’ is one of those too… curious ‘kid,’ perhaps. Or somebody’s probe.

Ha! Who knows.

Thanks again.

I will endeavor to write more. Not meaning post count, either.

Peace.

Update: This… is not real. It’s a balloon. Please see this corrective post. And yes, I’m embarrassed.Brazil's Spikey Stranger

I’m sure you’ve all seen this by now, but since it was in my drafts… This one’s nice because you can kind of see it change from round to sprockety. Now, lots are saying, just as they did with the last so similarly spiky one, that it’s a balloon, as the folks to the south ‘love balloons.’ Well that’s fine, but do they also rig them with mechanisms to pop out the spikes afterwards? Hmmm? Wouldn’t that put a bit of a damper on the weight to floatability ratio?

The alleged story behind it, that it’s shot by a kid in Brazil in 2008, is pretty believable. Said kid does a great job, too, as the image testifies to. You can see it tilt on its side for a bit after it grows the spikes. Don’t see where the ‘jellyfish’ label is from, though, as I can’t see any individual dangling tentacles. No matter. Sadly at the end that most dubious dumbed-down compensation ‘technology’ known as autofocus puts an end to it all prematurely.

I don’t believe this is an animation, as it goes against the main point of average Joes using it… to show off. Most of the CGI saucers you see are very brief (as it’s quite labor- and very computer resource-intensive) and nice and crisp… and maybe gaudy like the Haiti examples or even ludicrous like that Italian one. Many are, I imagine, from college class exercises. The CGI phantasms we all watched on and after 9/11 are of the exact opposite sort, as their purpose was quite different. This UFO video displays none of the characteristics of either path.

Maybe it’s a critter.
