Well here we are guys....another sighting in Kaikoura New Zealand....Im on dialup so cant upload the pic,but there looks to be a good pic if anyone can post it in this thread.....enjoy guys.

From the source below.
www.stuff.co.nz...


Strange sights over Kaikoura, circled, but is it evidence of visitors to our skies?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a drone, microlight, helicopter or balloon?

Not according to Kaikoura resident Debbie Smith who inadvertently photographed the strange phenomenon over the skies last week.

Smith was taking a photo to help with an oil painting. It was not until much later, while going through the photos on her computer, that she realised she had captured two unusual objects in the picture.

"The distance I was standing was so far away that it would be far too big to be a drone. Neither object appears immediately before or after in the sequence of photos I took, and no balloon could move so quickly out of frame."

She did not hear any noise at the time, and she would have noticed if it had been a regular moving object like a bird, Smith said.

"Whatever it is, it must have moved fast."

She contacted Tauranga's UFOCUS group who were very excited when they saw the photo and sent it on to a technical guru for analysis.

Kaikoura's resident astronomer, retired Canterbury University professor Larry Field, inspected the image and even after some image enhancement admitted it looked a bit strange.

It did not conform to the standard drone that looked like a flying saucer because the gear was on top rather than underneath, he said.

This was not the first time Kaikoura's skies had been the subject of such debate - the Kaikoura Lights were famously spotted in December 1978 by a cargo aircraft as well as an Australian TV crew.

In April 2012, things got exciting again with numerous sightings of a strange floating light, until that was debunked, the lights turning out to be paper lanterns.

Then in December 2013, footage of an object flying over the peninsula was posted on YouTube by photographer Martin Kantor. In the end it was presumed to be a bumblebee flying close to the water.

Hard to see without being able to zoom. From what I can tell I would say hoax, once a few sightings in a town then comes the "evidence".

I liked the comment section " what are the white fluffy things in the sky".

30 odd years between sightings though,with the first being one of the best examples of such.

Zooming in to the posted pictures, I notice roughly rectangular "selection frames" surrounding both objects and slightly away from each object (affecting background). They don't appear anywhere else, around any other objects in the photo, so they are not the result of a photo 'sharpening' filter applied to the photo.

The only conclusion is that they have been inexpertly copied and pasted into the image with a non-professional picture editing software (like MS Paint).

Fake.

Checked it based on what you said here and I agree. (Not being an expert or anything, but it's obvious once you take a good look.) Well done.

Well, most peoples "camera" is a phone.. which is not a camera at all. It has the crappiest of zoom functions, and is about worthless at night. Not many wander around even still, with a camera armed with a fully functioning mechanical zoom lens.

I'm having upload issues.

But, if you right click the second image from spacespider's post above, and go 'save as'.

Then (if you have Windows), download & install Paint.NET (it's free), load the saved image and zoom in a few times.

Too distant to see anything of value.
I don't really see the point in starting these kinds of threads, when the source is basically 'nothing', if you know what I mean.

hi chr0naut ... i am tending to agree....but....

its such a low resolution pic....and....if it is a UFO....
(and assuming it is operating on some sort of electro-magnetic system....)
maybe its distorting the background because of its high energy 'envelope'

just thinkin....
