One time I found a U2 spy camera in a dumpster. A photo enlargement company went out of business and they threw away everything, including a hi altitude spy camera. It was beautiful. I took it to the flea market and finally sold it to someone that wanted to scrap it for the large diameter lens.

Can't believe they threw away such a piece of history or that I sold it for junk at a flea market...

But, I was homeless at the time, needed the dough. Besides it took up too much space in the truck.


I only knew what it was because the owner of the store told me. He had it on display on a shelf from his early days working with the US gubment.

No way to tell. The guy I sold it to said he was a telescope maker. Photo buffs love big optics. I also scrapped large Kodak copy machines and sold the large diameter lenses at flea markets.

See what you think of this article about being poor. I can relate to a lot of those lines lol.

Interesting thanks for showing I found an article that details the project. This was a massive spy effort for China and Russia and apparently had some success. But eventually Russia complains and the project is abandoned. Betting Russians got tired of finding these things


stratocat.com.ar...

PS the containers would have been filled with water. If the barometer showed the balloon descending it would drop these to maintain altitude.

There's a lot of food for thought in those lines. It's been there since 27th December 2015 as a reminder to value trials as well as successes.

Or vodka in case the Russians got it.

They would have gone blind from that brand of alcohol, used as ballast to adjust altitude because it doesn't freeze.


Thanks for clearing that up. Ballast with alcohol make perfect sense when you think about it

Im suprised they didn't lie and tell everyone it was a ufo and not a high altitude balloon.

Can't, they got photos in the public realm.

Didn't stop them from spreading UFO stories though, when they captured the acorn Russian capsule in Kecksburg.

Thanks for the recommendation


His site has some very cool images. Have you got a link for the ones taken with the U2 lens? I'd love to see them

Absolutely! Ive read lots of reports on that, and it really seems quite obvious that it may have been a 'ufo', but NOT alien in nature. All signs point to a russian spy satellite, the size and shape even matches some of the Russian prototypes.

As well the eyewitness descriptions favor reentry of a man made object. The image of the acorn on the truck matched profiles of russian space vehicles and guess what, there was one due to reenter the atmosphere at the time.

Don't tell anyone though, "its really a aleen capsule".
