I did look at your images. Thanks for putting that all together. It has helped give me some perspective.

Still, I disagree that they are fishing lights. The spots in the area of the sighting are huge -- larger than the nearby city of Sapporo. None of the fishing fleets in the other images quite resemble the large, solid spots in the area of the sighting.
...


Check the picture of South America. The fishing fleets lights are also a lot bigger than any town.
Nothing strange about it.
The large solid spots (from the sat pictures of the location of the sighting) are due to saturation of the satellite sensor, as said before. Quality/sensivity of the pictures are not the same so you have to keep that in mind when comparing.

Why do you want it to be natural phenomenom? It's there everyday and sometimes moving hundred of miles from one day to the day after.
On top, there is an even bigger spot at South, also everyday. So according to you that's another extraordinary natural phenomenom?



...
Vanheijst makes a valid point about fishing grounds, as well. Once again, I refer to his knowledge as an expert witness.


JPC, as a pilot with experience, is a reliable witness, but there is no expert witness for unexplained sightings.




I've emailed JPC 48h ago about a new hypothesis which could explain the orange/red shade, I'm waiting for his view before posting here.

I do not want this phenomenon to be anything specifc; I simply won't accept an explanation I find implausible. To be frank, I get the impression you are rushing to conclude that there is 'nothing to see here.'

I have studied all of the images you presented. If you look closely, you will see some differences between the fishing fleets and the spots in the area of the sighting.

Look at the large cities in your images. Though smaller than the fishing fleets in area, they appear as singular blobs of very bright light. This is because lights in cities are many and very close together. When I look at the fishing fleets, I can clearly see tiny points of light with a dim glow between them.

The lights in the region of the sighting cover a smaller area than some of the fishing fleets, but they are more intense (brighter). They actually look more like the cities in your images rather than the fishing fleets.

I don't know what is behind this sighting, natural or not. Between my own observations of the images and Vanheijst's testimony (that of a an expert and first hand witness), I conclude that fishing fleets are an unlikely explanation.

a reply to: OpenMindedRealist i agree with OM Realist, there is a rush to explain it all away. i will not say any more. I do my own ufo research work. The ufo reality as a serious problem is known to those who look for info.
Keep the pics of data from satellites since it is important. What someone in here says those images reveal is not as important as those blotches of formed light on the surface. The key to proper analysis is to have an actual exercise where a satellite is asked to examine a real human fishing fleet operation with ideal clear sky conditions to examine and compare to the images revealed here from satellite for the target area where the Heijt light phenomena occurred. We all know there has been no assistance of such, nor can we assume it would be trustworthy as many officers of the US Air Force and US Navy have clearly stated, a criminal coverup is ongoing to not reveal to us all the "ufo" space alien reality.

Hi,
the sighting was made almost 3 months, so I'm not rushing to conclude that there is nothing to see.

I'm interested in this case because pictures are amazing, so I was very curious about the explanation.
I have no interest in any particular conclusion, I'm agnostic and I have no will to believe anything, neither extraordinary explanation, neither prosaic.


I have tried to help identying those lights by doing "research" with a couple friends, and I appreciate a lot the work of other people, like the very informative investigation I have linked on previous page (found thanks to Tim Printy).

I've only posted here to have views of members.


You are free to believe what you want, but the sighting is obviously a fleet of boats, the pilot agrees.


In my last email with JPC, we've offered a new hypothesis to explain the color red/orange: a fleet of boats seen through an ash-cloud.

There was activity in Kamchatka at the time of the sighting:
News from 23/08:
"Zhupanovsky , Kamchatka :
53.59 N, 159.15 E;
Elevation 9702 ft (2958 m)
Aviation Color Code is ORANGE
Moderate explosive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 26,250 ft (8 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time.
Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.
Moderate explosive eruption of the volcano continues. According to visual observation by E. Safonova, weak ash explosions occurred and ash plumes extended to the south-southeast of the volcano on August 20;
according to the data by E. Nenasheva, only gas-steam activity of the volcano was observing on August 17.
Satellite data showed ash plumes rose up to 3 km a.s.l. and extended about 110 km to the south-southeast of the volcano on August 19-20;
a thermal anomaly over the volcano was noted on August 16-17."

from: volcansvanuatueruptionsgb.blogspot.fr...


The ash cloud from the Zhupanovsky (650 km away) was going South-South Est, which seems to match with the direction of the sighting (South).

Please feel free to make some research and check.


JPC is not convinced about the ash cloud hypothesis, but when I've asked a volcano expert about it, he told me (I've given his identity to JPC) :
his personal view is "the sighting is due to light through an ash cloud, or some atmospherical pollution of some kind."

Hi Fl078,
As discussed via email, I think that its highly unlikely (if not impossible) that it was a thin layered ash cloud that colored the lights. Both because ash-clouds are often vertical, and not layered (stratus) but also because there were no actual ash-warnings for the airspace at the time we flew there (the notam you copied says it is possible there might be an eruption during that period, not that there is actually one)

On top of that, other red lights have been sighted by other pilots. This does make it unlikely that the lights have been colored by ash clouds in my opinion.

Cheers,

Jungian... Fishing boats are probably the first thing all of us thought it could be. But spend a little time considering the lights aren't the normal colours used, and that if these are fishing boats, the area a single boat is illuminating is absolutely huge, you can quickly assume that it isn't fishing boats creating the light.


I guess, but I lean a lot more towards sensationalism like a UFO hoax.


First, in the article, the fellow clearly states he does NOT think it's fishing boats. Second, he didn't mention a UFO, and suggested something volcanic, so why would you assume a UFO hoax?? That makes no sense. Some sort of geothermal activity is the most logical explanation here, especially considering the recent quakes, and how unstable the Pacific has been in recent years.


All fair. Just keep UFO's out of it was all I really meant. I was jaded by early comments I read elsewhere about it possibly being extra terrestrial. My bad.


Ah, makes sense. I can see that coming up. No worries! Still curious about what he saw.

a reply to: DERRUFO i only reply to myself here...general order 33...at all times never let any case or phenomena be associated with space alien crafts from a diff. civilization.

a reply to: DERRUFO the most preposterous comment in here has to be where someone says look at satellite images of huge lights energy radiation at other parts of the planet, and the commenter says see over here? look how big these Lights are ? and the Lights ARE FROM FISHING BOATS... what total BS...no one ever knows what it is if the light radiation areas are larger than the actual islands nearby with many people on them.

I've found (thanks to Sebastien) this GIF from globalfishingwatch.org...

It shows the location and movement of fishing fleets all over the world.

You can see the location of the sighting is frequently used by fishing fleets.

I understand you are convinced the lights were from a fishing fleet, but the above image does nothing to support your conclusion.

The satellite images show more detail. I ask you to again compare the lights in the area of the sighting with the lights of confirmed fishing fleets. Then compare both to the lights of cities in the same images.

To my eye, the lights in the area of the sighting more closely resemble the lights of large cities.

This incident has reportedly been investigated and considered by many scientific and government entities. None has offered a satisfactory explanation. Perhaps modern science, in all its glory, is as baffled by this as myself? Quite intriguing to think so...
