Listen: its not about finding the exact speed of the object .. Every day sincd 2 years i am sitting in front of a window being able to look 2 km far
and see a lot of birds.
I dont need complex mathematics to know how fast birds fly and how "near the must be" for them to reach a ceratin speed in my view field.
WHat i saw was no birds. ....in the video: i dont know ..it could be cgi..it could be fake..it could be speed up... it could be anything.
But when played in real time...the "things" at 16 seconds could not be birds....they would have to be much much bigger to fly that fast...
i am done.. i wont spend more time on this.
That's a shame (that you won't spend anymore time on it).
I'm still not saying what you saw was a bird. So kindly stop putting words in my mouth that I did not say.
However, I WILL correct you on things that you say that are wrong: such as that you can use the stars as a reference point for objects to determine
how fast something is flying......that is completely wrong unless you also know the objects distance.
I don't care if it's a bird, an air craft, a satellite, or the USS Enterprise.
And it's NOT complex math. Rate = Distance / Time is taught in grade school. Trigonometry is normally taught in high school.
Not everyone gets to trig in HS anymore. And that's okay.
But if you don't know it, then do not come on here and make claims that are not true, because you'll have those of us that do know how to do trig
correct you on it.
I really don't care if it was a bird, or a alien ship that you saw. What I do care about is someone posting something that is incorrect.
So you can either learn from those of us that DO know things like trigonometry and physics, which might even help you prove what you saw..........or
you can have attitude about it.
I'm not the one claiming what you saw was a bird. I'm the one simply showing you how to figure out how far and how fast something is using math.
