New member here with his 1st post, just after just discovering the ATS site.
I have witnessed a UFO, and I have reported it to NUFORC. I discovered that the benefits of making such reports were the possibility of having your
sighting collaborated by others who have made reports of the same event.
As my registered name implies, I have never been a believer in such things. So I was totally unprepared to capture any kind of media during this
event. But I was lucky to have had an ordinary pair of binoculars close by and I got a really good look at the object for several seconds.
I was also lucky to have a wife who made use of her cell phone camera to capture two images of the UFO. Most cell phone cams will not provide good
images of such objects, especially at night. But in my case, the images could be used to record the exact time of the event. With other objects in the
foreground, I was able to establish the exact direction the camera was pointed, which helped establish the position of the object.
Had I been prepared to capture media with high end cameras, I doubt that I would have gotten anything good enough to convince anyone of what was seen
that night. I think most people have dismissed photographic evidence of UFO’s, because with today’s digital technology, a computer rendered image
of a UFO can be faked and will be just as good as a photo. Same goes for videos.
Even so, I’m better prepared now with a 30 X optical zoom digital still/video cam with an ISO setting that goes up to 6400. Guess what I
discovered? The old binoculars provide a far better image at night than does the new cam.
So if you want to shell out big bucks for high end cameras, don’t expect people to be convinced of what you captured. You might want to consider
just getting a better view of the object for your own personal satisfaction, using a good pair of binoculars.
Doing so might give you a far better look at the object, and allow you to make a far more accurate report.
