Hello to all.....bear with me on this one.
My name is Paul, first ever post on ABS, I have enjoyed this superb site for some time now, and have been prompted to join to hopefully get some
expert opinion on this.
Here is what happened, here in the UK on each saturday evening we have our live national lottery draw, at the moment within the draw we have a thing
called Jet Set where contestents get the chance to win worldwide trips etc etc, this saturday past Sat 9th April 05, the current winners were in New
Zealand, and the show goes out live in the UK and on a live link to where ever the winning contestents are.
So this sighting ( UK time 19.40 ) was live from New Zealand, and happened over Auckland harbour, with blue skys odd clouds and the Skytower ( massive
ariel viewing platform ) as a backdrop.
Now this was broadcast by the BBC, hence this has been recorded by the BBC on professional broadcast quality film, although as far as I know, no one
else has picked up on this.
Right, at home here we have SKY+, which allows you to rewind live TV, which was very handy in this instence, as myself and girlfriend sat watching the
live draw and link to Auckland, by pure chance as this went on something caught my eye, and I said to my girlfriend did you see that, answer no.So
then several viewings of the rewind commence and my girlfriend is flabbergasted, myself thinking of every rational explanation for what we are seeing
and coming up blank.
I have watched this sequence 50 times plus, the broadcast cuts from from UK studio to outside broadcast in Auckland and the clip we have shows
something for seven seconds, as you go to the live Auckland shot, the camera man has the two winning guys to the forefront, against daytime blue sky
and the sky tower to the left as a focal point, after one second a white object just ' appears' ? in my opinion definately not close to the camera,
it appears in the sky to the right of the skytower and to the left of the contestents head in the foreshot, it then sweeps round in an upward 'arc'
having gone lower left to upper right' and behind the contestents head in the foreshot, dissappears for 1 second, reappears but now travels in the
opposite direction of upper right screen shot to sweep from upper right going lower left, and at this exact point purley coincidence I am sure the
live outside broadcast cuts back to the UK studio.
This was recorded during the live broadcast on our SKY hard drive, so we have the origenal recording, which we transferred to video, then my
girlfriend has recorded the clip on to digital camera from video, ( excuse us both as we are not ' techno geeks !) and as I am typing it has just
occured to me it might be better to try recording onto digi camera the clip saved on the sky hard drive for better quality, going to try that now.
Ok, an hour later, I have five clips each about seven seconds, question is how the hell do I link the clips each sitting now on my desktop for you
guys to view here ? afraid I need you to talk me through exactly how to do it.
