You don't need to filter away visible light, if there is an ir emitting object you'll see it whether you use a filter or not.
If your camera is able to see into the ir spectrum.

Caught a black dot moving upwards into the sky today. Unlike any bird I have seen. I only captured a couple of seconds on tape sadly as it was really difficult to find it in the viewfinder of the camera, you can see it after the airplane has passed by in this tape here:

The object moved straight upwards until I could not see it anymore, unlike any bird I have seen.

Congrats on your capture!
One of the nice things about being able to limit the light wavelength is that it will really make areas drowned out by the ambient light become more defined. I also mix it up sometimes by turning on my 'negative effect' (camcorder feature) along with the IR filter to help me find objects. Once they're found, you can switch the 'feature' mode back to normal (with effects off).

You'll find that a whole differant perspective opens up when using a IR filter.

I was just reading about some researchers that want to install 4 webcams facing North, South, West, and East from on top of their roof. The feed would go into their PC displaying and recording in a four window view. They wanted to manipulate their webcams to utilize Infrared. I'm hoping to hear from them as I emailed them a few days back. So I'll try to keep the thread aprised of any success or failures on their part as the project is just now being undertaken and starting to move forward as a real experiment.



Wishing you continued success,
John

I'm going to be using a high quality still camera to capture these (with my Hoya lense). All of the video is great and exciting - but I want to capture some detail.. if I can. I'll let you know what happens, might take a long time.

Sorry I missed this query. I can not in truth answer that question as from what I understand and from what I've personally researched is that much of this depends on the type of UFO/Craft. Other thoughts are that depending on whether or not a Ufo/Craft are in certain stages (IE: Stealth/Cloak, invisibility, etc), that the use of IR can help make them visible or at least help show a 'trace signature'.

Keep in mind that this is still a field of research that has no experts and is basicly an experiment fueled by trial and error (or the school of hard knocks).

When you try your experiment out SteveR, I'd try it in "burst mode" on a stationary unmoving tripod since your shooting for detail. Some of my best captures have been useing this method as it gives you many times a before and after which is great for judging the distance and speed between shots. That is how I captured these little guy's earlier this year (IR was not used in these captures):

Burst mode captures and Report

Thanks for the info on all this
Ive been working up my way to getting cameras in place and get some real research done on my own. Just in life its hard sometimes becasue we can get so wrapped up in our lifes we dont have time for such things.. Lucky for me I no longer have to live the life of a slave, grinding 6 days a week!

When I get some results I will be happy to post it here, as Ive found a home away from home here


Peace guys!

Uploaded a new capture of my video with 4x the resolution here:

Any ideas? Could be a baloon I guess.

Hello Acharya, thanks for uploading the video for us all to view.

A few questions if I may:

(1) What were the weather and wind conditions (wind from what direction from your POV)?

(2) Did you see this object prior?

(3) If so, could you see it with the naked eye?

(4) Could you see the object thru the camera?

1) Dont recall, and it is anyhow difficult to know he wind conditions far up in the sky, it may be still on the ground and far different a couple of miles up.
2) Yes
3) Yes
4) Yes

Acharya,

I've sent your footage to an associate that will attempt to analyze your footage more so
than I would be able to do. This may be a bit of a wait as he's a little overwhelmed
with a number of similar projects and analysis.

I encourage you to continue looking and taping with your camera. If you happen to
capture something try to remain zoomed in a bit and give an auditory report as this
will help in the analysis, if you can also try and accumulate ambient data whether
written or recorded with the capture.

General Information

Wind direction
speed of wind
direction/trajectory the craft is moving to and from
the time of sighting
Length of sighting
Location of sighting
Size of object in comparison to sticking your arm out and holding a: "BB", a dime, a
golfball, a softball, etc.
Color of Craft
Number/Color of Lights seen and the regular or iregular sequence of such
Sound, was any other sounds or lack of sound noticed.
Witnesses, how many viewed the event?
Other air traffic in the sky
Nearest Airport (and direction from the sighting)
Type of camera used (and other equipment and filters)
Guess of distance from your POV (point of view).

Good luck with your continuing searches....

Johnny
