Just to lighten things up a bit, I thought I would post this:

These are 8mm films made by the legenday "contactee" George Adamski, allegedly showing alien spacecraft on their way to Earth. (The goth soundtrack is strangely appropriate.) Note that the "spacecraft" follow jerky, non-linear trajectories that rapidly shy away from trees, presumably to prevent the viewer from determining whether the "objects" are behind or in front of them. Most of the "craft" appear to be painted on a sheet of glass that is moved around in front of the camera. By today's standards, the "special effects" are primitive in the extreme, yet back in the 1950.s they were adequate to allow hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people to willingly suspend their disbelief. Discuss.

It's perfectly believable!! Although that alien should probably sober up before interstellar travel.

At the 40 second mark the object does appear to go behind the branch.
I slowed it down as much as I could but I'm on my iPad. So it's very jerky.
perhaps someone on a computer can slow it down and confirm.

Edit: don't bother wasting your time slowing it down. Instead skip to 1:14 and laugh yer arse off at that display.
You'll see why I say not to bother.
Hahaha

Fun!

The painted glass ones were easy to spot and kind of silly. The "white dot" videos were something else entirely. Do you know how he made those?

I was thinking more along the lines of some small object suspended from an out of view fishing rod/line (I think I remember reading that some films were faked that way in the early days when cameras didn't have the quality/resolution they do now) but regardless, it looks as fake as fake can be but I can also understand that back in the day this might have seemed like "a thing". I googled his name (I've never heard of him before) and apparently the Dutch Queen at the time (Juliana) requested and received a visit from him. LOL

I think most here on ATS are quite skeptical of UFO videos after having watched so many bad ones. There are a few that appear to be genuine UFO from bygone years but people seem more interested in passing off fakes as real. I guess to some it's just a game.

When I was so much younger than today, I saw a documentary featuring Howard Menger, a 1950s alleged "contactee", and in the doc Howard opens a display case and pulls out an approx. 6" UFO model and Howard said it was the model that George Adamski used in his films. At YouTube there are several videos featuring Howard but I don't know which one includes that segment. Still, you'll have a great time listening to what went on in 1950s UFOlogy,

Sears lantern:


Adamski's photographic evidence was so bad it is difficult to understand why, even in the 1950's, anyone would believe it. Adamski was born in Poland, and received "expedited" US citizenship, which led to persistent rumors that he was connected with American intelligence agencies. This has led some investigators, like Jacques Vallee, to speculate that he was being used to front experiments in "mass psychology." Intelligence agencies wanted to know how seemingly rational, sophisticated people could turn away from science and reason to embrace irrational movements like Nazism and Communism, both of which rejected modern western science in favor of quasi-religious political philosophies.

Fortunately,that couls never happen here. [/sarcasm]

Those are just passing commercial aircraft, still a rare sight in those days.
