It's a fake. You can zoom in to the object with any basic CG program (MS Paint) and see the border of the clouds around the object are lighter in color than the surrounding clouds. Copied/paste.


The image has NOT been altered in any way. These are the same old tactics that have been used to discredit and derail UFO threads since the inception of the internet. The image is 100% genuine. You have no idea what you're talking about.

Looks to me like a ANF-67G weather monitoring dirigible, quite common in this area used to measure atmospheric conditions & data collection over long duration's of time.

Let me be the first to guess...

...some kind of odd weather balloon? I mean, clearly it is not aerodynamically shaped for flying.

If not that, perhaps some sort of weather-ballon LIKE scientific / weather drone.

Any other ideas?


Are you just here to muddy the water or are you going to back up your claim with a link? This thread has turned into a circus.

And I've just taken a much closer look and didn't even notice the black triangular UFO chasing them!

While I do see some similarities between the vulture images and the object in question, there are also just as many inconsistencies. There are no discernable feathers on the extremities of the object. Also, large birds tend to soar and glide with the wind currents once they are at high altitudes. If those are wings on the object, what are the chances that a bird that size would be flapping its wings to the fullest extent? There are lots of turkey vultures at one of my favorite state parks in NC (Pilot Mtn State Park) and the only times I've seen them fully flap their wings is when they're taking flight from a resting position.

I'm just not seeing a good match between the two. Close but no cigar.





Again, you are telling everyone that has posted an explanation with very logical conclusions that they are incorrect yet have given us absolutely nothing of your own opinion other than your "intuition" tells you it is not a bird.

Again I will compare this type of argument to something of an un/under educated stance/response....similar to a child holding their hands over their ears and shouting La La La so they can't hear you speak.

Oh, and the chances of seeing a large bird flap their wings to their fullest extent is pretty high...that is why wings are like that....to flap. Do you propose that birds simply have that capability for no reason other than they just have it but don't ever use it?



It's easy to see that you're only here to try to derail this thread. Birds have common sense. There is your final answer.

With all due respect, I don't see any evidence of a feather anywhere in the image. This thread is a prime example of debunking 101, 201, and 301. We have obviously moved into the more advanced 301as of this post.

Just look at all the various posters who have proclaimed that they have positively identified the object. 50 different conclusions and they all insist they are right. I'm laughing out loud.

I'm not going to sit here and say that your picture is not genuine, because I don't believe so and I truly believe you think this "object" is unusual.

I highly believe it's a bird. Object in question does not look that high in altitude, maybe 100-150 feet. Maybe a crow?



I took this picture a while ago, and I did not see this bird either. It seemed to have just appeared in my photo. I'd bet my life that if I caught this at a similar angle with the wings flapping down, it would look JUST like your photo here.

Now I'm saying this is 100% proof that it's a bird, but I'd put alot of stock into it being a bird.

I offered to send you the enlargements so you could see the feathers on the wing edges..I wouldn't have mentioned this if I hadn't seen it for myself..
And Guess what, Flipping the horizontal, and ENLARGING it, we can easily see that this was indeed the big ole Vulture, and I suspect most had it's tail confused with it's front.. It is looking down at some dead meat probably. Pretty darned funny..


My wife thought the head of the bird was some guy riding in a pilot seat..lol ..it does look a little bit like that, but is just a vulture with the classic white collar around the neck (I think)..
Is that you Rob? I knew you led a double life..

Some folks here don't believe images can be enlarged and also increase the resolution without messing up the image, but I think this proves otherwise..
Just needs decent tools to work with and the reverse of a "you can't do that" attitude heh

I've tried to be light-hearted in this thread.

Let me be serious.

You were concentrating on getting the photo of the clouds. You weren't looking at anything else. You didn't notice the bird flying through the shot. You're friends were not there as expert witnesses to say they did not see anything in shot as they were probably not even looking in the direction you were when you took the shot.

I've provided a shot of my own which I took without noticing an entire flock of birds, one of which looks like a black triangle UFO. It isn't. It's a bird.

Can you not open yourself up to the possibility that what you shot was a bird and not an extraterrestrial space craft?

I realise you have invested yourself quite a lot so far in this thread but it may be time for you to let go and admit the obvious.

Best Wishes.

Sorry, You're right. I have NO idea what I was thinking, thank you.

What I meant to say is, it appears to have been artificially cropped. When the object is viewed at 400% zoom the contrast of the object, its boarder and the cloud that the object is "pasted" to does not match the surrounding cloud. It appears as if someone needed to brush up on their blending technique. It very well could be an effect of the camera phone.

I am not trying to discredit you on the picture because I have an underlying plan to derail UFO threads. I have seen my share of UFOs, and some so close that had you seen with your own eyes, would have you crying mommy.

Peace

Me too, mate. I just come across as a debunker when people put up photos which are obviously explainable as mundane events and refuse to accept that there is a rational explanation.

I've seen stuff too!

I want you to know that I appreciate and trust what you say because I can also see some things about this thing/bird/contraption that just puts the average busybody to sleep, rather than inspire any investigation hehe.. It is a very cool picture, whether or not it is something strange or mundane.

Even if a damn bird, the logo like crest on that right wing underneath, or center of the back end, and markings on the visible outer left wing are not the usual, but that might be a byproduct of the enhancement I did. Still, though, in images where there are contrasted and discernable colors like the solid blue sky and then that black bird like object, you usually wouldn't see artifacts from enhancement just on the object in question, it would show the same artifact elsewhere, but that didn't happen.

The colors started popping out, the more I added some light/contrast changes, but only on the wing, and that glowing crest with the 3 or 4 segments were very sensitive to any enhancement, much more so than anything else in the image, which could be relevant to something abnormal that was there, or maybe not.. But it got my attention because just bumping the light a bit, affected that glowing aberration very quickly and a lot, when everything else in the image didn't do anything noticeable except get a bit lighter.


Your kind words and pleasant attitude are much appreciated. Also I admire your tenacity and attention to detail. There is a lot happening all around us constantly, and it's a challenge to learn from each other's perspective.

On some level, we're all doing the best that we can under the limitations and ever changing circumstances. I do feel that much has been hidden from us by the scientific community and the political controllers. I feel a duty to expose the cracks in the complex mesh of lies and deception.

It's a pleasure to work together as we endeavor to sever the cords that hold us down and find a peace that lasts forever.



But you are replying to some who clearly sees that NASA wrote GAY on Mars surface and many more such.


Ohhh that smarts.. And I mentioned yesterday that the contact lenses I have been wearing a month straight were causing me to have Kalidoscope eyes without the chemicals, (but I left out the Kalidascope eyes and chemicals part..) Sorry you were so offended by the comments I made then...Was my fault..
