The object in these photographs appeared to me as an oddly large flickering light that changed position instantly. I did not observe the streaking that appears. If that is camera artifacts, I would like to see it duplicated. These remind me of the Stephensville photos. All I can say is that this was no planet, or star, or conventional aircraft. This was taken in Texas hill country. I have a hunch that this is some sort of electrical phenomenon generated by the quartz rich geology. I have seen similar things more than a few times. I would appreciate any thoughtful analysis of what I have captured shots of here. I promise I am not trying to propagate any sort of hoax or get any special attention.

Here are the pics imbedded for you :-)

Great photos, whatever the lights are! Thanks for sharing! I know that I cant wait to hear some of the explanations given.

Thanks for the imbed...ha...that's what she said. No, really thanks. These are in no way faked.

They don't appear to be camera artifacts so much as the results of a prolonged exposure. The foreground is blurred enough to confirm that. We can't really speculate on what it might have been without knowing the settings you were using with your camera and if it was on a tripod and how long the exposure was.

Edit to add:

With enough camera movement and a long enough exposure, a bright star or planet could easily produce the same results. Similarly you may have actually captured ball lightning, but given the fact you were using a prolonged exposure time I'd say the former is probably the case. It could be anything really, but an alien spacecraft seems unlikely.

What im wondering, is how slow is your shutter? If its not ungodly slow then this "thing" is moving incredibly fast. So fast that your camera is capturing all of these movements in one go. Crazy stuff for sure. Awesome photos :-)

This is the effect of a glowstick and slow/long shutterspeed, could be a small drone or radio controled something.

I was using a Minolta Z1 set on auto. I was not using a tripod. I did lean against a tree for a steady rest.

I really don't think it was a radio controlled contraption. It was literally going from point a to point c without touching point b...in between flickers. The only way it could have been such, is if there was more than one. I really don't feel that is what it was.

I would just like to add that flying any sort of aircraft in those sort of patterns in those conditions would be extremely difficult, especially from the ground with a controller. However the electrical phenomenon theory is pretty good, like a tiny ball of lightning zipping around.

I want to be clear...I do not feel these things are alien craft. I have seen them more than once, and they do seem to somehow be linked to consciousness. I got out of bed in the wee hours to see this one. It is not normal to get out of bed a 3 or so in the morning and go outside with a camera. The brain operates on electrical properties. Whatever is causing this phenomenon to manifest also seems to have an effect on the electrical fields of the brain.

I say long exposure with a monofilament line attached to a kite with a glow stick on it or led.

Long exposure plus unidentified source of light. To capture clouds (As shown in one of those photos) in low light, the shutter speed and exposure would have been such that the conditions were perfect for this effect. Nothing paranormal, psychic or extraterrestrial about this. However, cool pics.

Well long exposer without a tripod can make images like this. because you can't be as still as the tripod can and with the shutter open its pretty much recording all the light coming into the camera (including the little shaking you were doing while trying to steady the camera) might be why its like this.

I expected your kind. You, sir, are incorrect.

It was an unusual light. I make no further claims. I took photos and they came out like this. Anyone who feels compelled to imply that I am up to any sort of fraud can just save their breath. I saw something, I photographed it...this is what it came out like. I am only interested in intelligent replies that are not implying that I am perpetuating a hoax.

I don't think we are saying its a hoax, just trying to find a logical explanation before we all assume its a UFO.

If it is a plasma...there is a possibility it is conscious itself...or perhaps directed by another consciousness....
There are authenticated shots of plasma balls making crop circles....
And yes the Stephenville lights were the first flash I had....
If it was set on auto...what would the shutter speed actually set itself at in a nite shot like that....?
Do you see these regularly? like the Marfa or Brownsville phenomenon?
If so can you say if they appear more regularly in high humidity?
thanks ......s

Thank you. I don't even like the term UFO. It was a strange light in the sky.

I just looked at the specs for the camera, and it said the maximum exposure time on auto is 2 seconds. If there was shaking during that 2 seconds, that explains the trails of light. At night I can see the camera using the max exposure time.

*EDIT*

Link: Imaging Resources



Shutter speeds range from 1/1,000 to 15 seconds in Manual and Shutter Priority modes, with a Bulb setting permitting exposures as long as 30 seconds. (Maximum exposure time in Program AE and Aperture Priority modes is four seconds, and two seconds in Auto and Digital Subject Program modes.

Cool pics.

As mentioned by others, defo long exposure pics.

As for what caused it, someone mentioned a drone. But I am getting tired of every pic now being classed as a drone.

My first thoughts were literally some sort of flying insect that radiates light? If they exist. But it would have to be some big ol light in it's tail to produce that thickness and intensity.

I am therefore, going to have to say, most likely a drone, R/C plane or natural occurrences.
