Looks to me like some kind of bug, or an enthusiasts throwing a Frisbee during a local sports competition

The Fastest Flying Insect: Dragonflies are known to travel at the speed of 35 miles an hour. Hawk Moths, which have been clocked at a speed of 33.7 miles an hour, come in second.

The other thing to consider the sensor on his camera has a 2x crop factor so the effective focal length he filmed at is doubled compared to 35mm or full frame digital cameras.

So fast moving insects is the most likely cause.

In fact here is some exif data from his first image in the OP

Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) [0x829A] = 10/2500 second ===> 1/250 second ===> 0.004 second
Lens F-Number / F-Stop [0x829D] = 40/10 ===> ƒ/4
Focal Length [0x920A] = 140/10 mm ===> 14 mm



Mr. "i-know-everything" hits again!


Good Job OP.
Please, keep posting anything you consider important about your observations!

Here are some photos direct from the videos, in the highest resolution possible.















I'm off camping for two days, more to come. If anyone knows a program that will turn a video into a picture showing the moving object, as in a snowboarding backflip, please let me know and I will create them. That and animated GIFs are the best way to show these, I believe.

The airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow, an European one, is 45mph.

They don't always "flap", sometimes they may soar and glide and they sure can do that for 1/4th of a second, this is the time frame we're talking about here. So seeing a "non-flapping" thing can WELL be a fast bird, I'd consider up to 45mph pretty fast. You have to do more to convince me there we're dealing with some craft or provide significant proof it can not be a bird.

A 1/4th of a second footage and NOT seeing it flapping does NOT make an UFO. You know very well that birds are not constantly flapping if you're somewhat familiar watching, birds, like sparrows etc. chasing bugs.

…or a small bug just a meter or so in front of the camera.

The camera isn't designed to capture this speed of motion in high fidelity, even if it is "HD" it isn't design for it so your small fast moving object is stretched.

This close up files.abovetopsecret.com... has the telltale signs of it being a bug stretched out, the bottom left cutout in particular you can see a set of wings either end of the object, it's the same set of wings it's just we're seeing them up then down then up again and the insect's (or possibly a small bat) state smeared into one frame to create a rod effect.

I agree fast soaring birds are a possibility. I have been tricked by this in videos before. But these turn 90 degrees without flapping! And such high speeds. More than 8 inches long for sure, based on size and going behind tree and chimney.

Not a bug because of large size and distance of 30 feet.

I agree I see one or two sets of 'things' on top but not on bottom. So I dont think its wings, I think two features on top that spin and line up from side perspective.

Excellent work and please keep it up and share with us again!

I have done a similar project with my Nikon D40x slr and have captured some unknown fast flying objects that couldn't be seen with the naked eye.

I was going to try and upload my pics, but, looks like you have to upload them to a library on ATS first? I have them uploaded to photobucket.

You should compare your shots with these ones:

There's a lot of similarities there..

I wouldn't rule out somebody's toy(s). Something like this...



FPV flying and speed runs through tree canopys makes for great footage. If you're far enough away, you wont hear it, but can still see it zipping by.

Nice work
Would you by any chance have access to an IR-converted camera?
(Not an IR filter as the effect would be very limited)
It would be really interesting to see what you can capture in IR light

good luck!

2: How many anomalies of this sort were there? How many hours of filming?
I believe it's 11 disks contained in about 8 video files. This represents probably 20 or 25 hours of video files sifted through, fairly randomly captured during daylight hours when there is no rain.



If these represent actual aircraft - anyone who can do math has to be boggled at how many you managed to capture in such a short time frame.

Unless you were filming right on top of a base, then the sheer number is indicative of massive activity.

Can you show us what convinces you it's going behind the tree or chimney? I see nothing in what you posted that convinces me of that.

Great post.
I really find the one @ 1:20 fascinating.
Keep recording.

No birds or bugs here, too fast, the shape is too perfect, so is its trajectory and looks to those strange globes/things on top of it.
Really good catch here op!
