Might as well re-post the less blurry ones as well seeing there's some scrutinizing going on ?




Aside from exposure levels etc, what do people think as possible shoops?

Did the light source look like a flame?

The reason I ask, is that a few years ago, I saw what looked like 2 aircraft flying close together and one of them was shooting out a flame at the other, in broad daylight over the City of Bristol.

I say it looked like 2 aircraft, but it could have been conjoined as they were so close together, yet appeared to be 2 totally different craft.

I have never seen anything like it before, or since. Just wish I had the presence of mind to photograph it, but I was so engrossed by it, I just did not think to do so.


Absolutely no flame. On two occasions I've had a real good look at this thing. The first time it very slowly circled over head, its so visible I'm amazed it hasn't been reported elsewhere! Its definitely one craft.

Charizard has posted a sketch thats shows exactly what I saw HERE

I caught something similar to this a couple of years ago.
You can read about it here: www.abovetopsecret.com...

No shutter speed or iso ?


ISO is set to auto, no adjustment for shutter speed. Its just a basic 5 mg phone camera. Think I'll have to treat myself to a sensible camera for christmas.
I'm not a photographer, rarely need a camera at all. so dont want to spend too much, but could you recomend something that would be able to capture this thing in more detail that isn't goint to cost me the earth?

Your camera exif data 8 second shutter speed. Reading the thread although you placed it on the car to take the picture as you pushed the shutter the camera would move even a small amount would cause what you see.

Is this any help? I've removed details about the phone as it wasn't mine.

What is required is a camera with a good sized sensor in it and I don't mean megapixel I mean physical size.

Sensor size

Anything on the top row down to the 1" sensor on the second row but look here for camera reviews.

If your refering to my comment that it wasn't my phone, but I have it in my car? Thats because I needed to get the photo of the phone so I brought it home with me, put it back in my car this morning so I didn't forget it when I go back over this evening. Its a friends old phone, hence the poor 5mb camera

Edit, NM, saw the exif data, but it seems strange that the speed says 0...even if it is set to auto it would show that. Are you showing settings from the phone or the exif data from the photo? Can you upload the original photo unedited?

Shame the pic is limited, so we can only take your word for it. But that drawing of the "rear view" in your description reminds me of something I've seen when I was a kid. Only thing different is that there was some kind of reflective surface above and below the lights going across like that. Was like a long thin rectangular shape going across the sky slowly with similar light to sodium vapor lamps. Funny thing was that where I was staying at the time, this thing would have been almost right over the local airport given the path it was on. (No aircraft I know of has that many lights going across.)

I tend to be quite sceptical. (Little pinpoint lights, scratches/chips, reflections, long exposures of bugs/birds/airplanes being called UFOs.) But it is interesting when somebody describes something very close to what I remember seeing myself at one point.

Do you have the original full photo with exif data?


I posted the exif data above HERE

However, I'll be the first to say that exif data is meaningless as any kind of proof. Linux allows one to change exif data and there's many programs available for windows to do the same, thats why I didn't include it in the op, but like you others asked for it. The camera used doesnt seem to have stored anything of much worth in the exif data.
I'm not bothered if people dont want to believe, thats their choice, but i know its genuine so I posted it for those that have an interest, and in the hope that I might learn something, and I did. Compare the pics I included in the op with this that Charizard posted

My view of this object was good, its just the camera that couldnt see it very well. Like you I'm often sceptical of little pin points of light, but as I discovered, thats all these camera's give us, even though we can see them clearly with our own eyes. Like your siting this thing was bright orange just like the sodium lights we see on street lamps.

You only have my word for it? Thats fine, as I just posted above, believing is a choice we all have.

I'm running Linux, if I hover my mouse over the photo it shows the exif data that I posted. I am reluctent to post the original as it contains details of the phone which wasn't mine.
Is there something in particular that you wanted to see in the exif data, or just a better look at the photo? I can upload a full copy of the photo minus the exif if that helps?

Interesting. If this is a regular occurrence, can you get your hands on a higher-quality video camera with a good zoom? I'd lend you mine if I was nearby, but I'm across the pond.



So annoying, I have one of those old Sony cams that record onto tape, but the tape mechanism is screwed, its annoying because it has a 25 x optical zoom and would be perfact for the job. getting a cam capable of capturing this thing is now a priority.

What details are you worried to post? The model of the phone? There isn't really anything in exif data that could identify a person...
