Ahhh, an orange thingy. I used to see those out in Arizona and New Mexico. Not every orange ball thing in the sky is a Chinese lantern. If they are, then I got buzzed by the most metallic and large Chinese lantern that I've ever seen about 8 years ago. That Chinese lantern sure looked like some sort aircraft to me (though I tend to think that what buzzed me was experimental in nature as it did have chase plane behind it). All of the sightings that we had at my house were all due to the fact that I was parked out front, having a smoke with nothing else to look at but the sky. Funny, huh?

Anyways, I saw enough out there to know that there are things buzzing in the sky that put off an orange light that aren't flares, balloons or Chinese lanterns. In fact, a few years ago when a bunch of orange Chinese lanterns did fill the sky, I panicked for about 20 seconds because I'd learned to equate orange light in the sky as being something not good. Only 20 seconds though because I immediately realized that they were actually just Chinese lanterns. There's a huge difference between a Chinese lantern and a lit balloon in comparison to an actual craft that emits an orange light. Massive difference really.

I don't know what you saw for sure as I wasn't there. However, I am here to say that not all orange lights are Chinese lanterns or balloons. That realization was absolutely sealed for me in 2006 and I reported it the following day to every single AFB in the area. Sure hope what I saw was an experimental craft. The alternative isn't so comfortable, lol.

Great post, ive tried my best to extract anything from the images but i cant. The colour radiates from the center which is obvious. I have no idea what it is and by on of the picture i can see it is moving at high speed which warps the centre of the object into almost a bullet shape.



best i could make of it.

once again good image s&f

Great post, and thanks for trying too extract something from the photos, I had to upload them to photobucket and copy the direct link to get them on here, I'm not sure if photobucket compress the image, if they do then I'd be happy to email the ones direct from my phone as they might be higher quality to be able to extract something from?

I saw two very similar orange balls in similar circumstances a couple of years back travelling west to east from my back yard in Kent, UK.

I have no idea of altitude, however I watched them curve away (like they were tracking the curvature of the Earth or may be the atmosphere) to pin pricks in the distance.

No idea what they were but they seemed to have more depth/body than Chinese lanterns. Struck me more as 'projectiles' than...well anything else

Checked out on the web for other such sightings in the area and found a good few hits, some of singles others of swarms, over a fairly long period. As I recall - few used the term 'UFO', most stuck with words like 'awesome' or 'stunning'.

It was, actually that web trawl that turned up ATS for the first time - so glad to share and tell my truth on this topic.

Im not 100% but i think photobucket compress images on free accounts but not pro accounts. yeh you can email me them and i can try to give a few different techniques on each.
From what i can see it looks very good. hopefully can get something more

Any exposure details

No details, just uploaded one of the pics to Flickr as you can see shutter speed/exposure etc, it just says program AE, I will just clarify that I didn't touch any settings on the camera, I literally unlocked the phone, pressed camera, and clicked away


If you right click on the picture file on your computer you will get a menu select properties and then go to details see here



As you can see info on a picture re exposure details.

The problem with camera phones is everyone believes the manufacturers hype they are ok for general picture taking in bright conditions but even the ones that claim they are good in the dark are no good for this type of picture.

Even with my 16mp DSLR I use manual focus at night and also manual exposure.

As for people on this thread and other ufo threads trying to use various filters and effects of photoshop etc on these types of pictures it gives me a good
.

What do they actually think they can show from a camera phone image

I would do that but I don't have a pc or laptop, I only have a phone and a tablet, do you know any other way to find the exposure?

... I was in Hugglescote just outside Coalville in leicestershire in the UK, it was in the sky for maybe 15 seconds before I lost view of it, as for direction I'm not sure, it was going from my left to right as I was looking at it, I can't remember seeing any stars so it must have been cloudy, and if that's the case it would mean the ball would have been under the clouds


In the UK around November 5th people with money to burn lanch firework rockets ... en.wikipedia.org...
