Hmmm interesting day - two anomolous pics in a row...

Was driving home from Sydney this evening and noticed some chemtrails being sprayed out west. Had friends in the car but was still eager to snap a pic, so when we reached our destination i pulled out my camera (which i always have with me) and i took a quick picture.

The chemtrails didn't come out well but i seem to have snapped something else. IF you look just above the lightpost in the middle of the image you will see what i can only describe as an orb or even ufo.

I didnt notice it at the time at all, but then again i wasnt really looking out for it.

As far as i can see, you can clearly make out that the sun is reflecting off the object and it doesnt seem too small either.

What's everyone's thoughts?

files.abovetopsecret.com...

also, wasnt going to post the pic below but thought i might have well consdiering i was making the post.

While walking to work this morning i notice two objects flying in synchornisation with eachother and a third object following behind. THe reason i wasnt going to post is because i initially thought they were planes - the third object certainly was.

But the more i looked at them, the less plane-like they appeared, and the more bizzare their movements became. they flew together and seemed to be moving in unison in a slighty curved and downward pattern. the plane following them appeared to be flying fast but nothing amazing. see what you all think.

i think the first pic is the better one tho.

Well it's a bit hard to see what you have on the pictures. Are these the originals or do you have a bigger size picture. If you do please post to

ambushrocks,

i do have bigger versions of these - but you can hardly make anything extra out in them. However i am emailing them to you as we speak anyway.

Let me know your thoughts in the thread please

Thank you. I haven't got them yet but I'll keep checking my mailbox every minute. I'll let you know if I can find anything in them.

It's good to see somebody's seeing something in Sydney; I'm keeping a lookout to & from work everyday. I haven't seen anything recently, but it looks as though that object is genuinely in the photo & at a distance.

I've zoomed in all the way, taken a screenshot from Windows Viewer & analyzed it in Photoshop -- and the detail's very hard to make out. But it's definitely there, and it's oval or circular.

Orbs are always hard to get a good photo of, they're most always just a metallic or white dot and very far away. Usually it's good to have a video of the object just so the motion can be analyzed as that is what's most interesting about orbs (their wild manoeuvres).

Love to see more - keep a lookout tomorrow & I'll do the same.

Yep I've got the pictures and messed around a bit in psp, here are the results








My conclusions are that the duo ufo isn't a spark from the power lines (that should make the surrounding pixels light while they are dark)

They are not lens flares, the characteristics for a lens flare are different and besides from the angle from where you were standing at no lens flares are likely to occur.

I've higlighted the images a bit and solarized and traced some contours to give a better picture of what we are looking at. I'll leave it up to the experts on this forum to come with conclusions.

Again thank you for the pics Srsen!

From the description ("they flew together and seemed to be moving in unison in a slighty curved and downward pattern") it sounds like a helicopter carrying cargo.

Incidently the picture also look exactly like a helicopter carrying cargo.

Look's like some still's from the Australian UFO wave website.

All footage pictures involed with the site were indeed fake and created with certain edit skill's.

However if not from that site i stand corrected but something just look's the same in my mind.

Regard's

It's pretty clear that in the first pic, the airborne object is overexposed. The evidence is that the foreground objects that are sunlit are overexposed. Overexposure changes the shape of small objects.

Also, what makes you think that the vapor trails in the background are anything other than ordinary contrails?

yes, srsen believes sydney is being covered with chemtrails - it's all crap though - i have never ever seen any such thing in sydney's skies & yes i too look up regularly.

Evasius,

I know, I get so bored with Sydney – why can’t we have a mass sighting for once!
are we not worthy!

I like the way you think, but it ABSOLUTELY wasn’t a helicopter carrying cargo – no way in the world. When I say they flew in unison, they didn’t always do it in the configuration seen in the pic. At one stage the bottom one was in front of the other, then it slowly moved to below it. When I say in unison I mean that they moved up or down together – the ‘slightly curved and downward’ motion was done at exactly the same time, but not always in that one on top of the other config – have I explained that alright?

I DO agree that in the pic with the two objects, the top one DOES look like a helicopter – but I can say confidently, that at the time it looked NOTHING like a helicopter and I’m quite sure it wasn’t one. As I said, if anything I thought they could have been planes – but only for a short time – I got my camera out of my bag because I started to think they actually weren’t planes.

Hehe dude, trust me, I have NO editing skills! And I have never even heard of that site until you just mentioned it. actually I’m a bit surprised that they look enough like pics on those sort of sites – kind of exciting in a way! Who knows – maybe this is the real deal.

What do you mean by overexposed? As in I took the photo poorly or I have manipulated them? I can send you whatever info you may need, as in originals or whatever, to clarify that these pics are straight off my memory card. The only changes I made were to zoom in a little and crop the unnecessary part of the image so that the orb can be seen clearer.

And, not wanting to get into a chemtrail debate in this thread, I am very confident these were not normal contrails. I study this stuff quite extensively and the difference between a standard contrail and a chemtrail is really obvious once you know what to look for. But this is a totally different topic for a different thread.


Oh, and Juliet, thanks a bunch for the analysis of the pics. Interesting stuff! DEFINITELY not a spark as you said – they just happened to be in that spot when I took the pic
Is there any way you can confirm that I have not manipulated these images? Just so people don’t think they are photoshopped in anyway??


Thanks for all the input though guys, keep it coming - this is great

From Downunder, look up TODAY! just this morning there were two big ones above my house - i live in Sydney's west. there is a lot of haze today also. i expect to see more as today unfolds.

but as i said, this isnt a chemtrail thread



reflection off plane fueselage?? could be - you never know. Just seemed a bit too round to be anything reflecting off a plane - but who knows.

mate, i reckon what youre seeing is contrails & also the fact that you live in the western suburbs makes me think that 1st pic was a plane heading off away from you (or towards you - standard western sydney flight path - kingsford smith? bankstown?) - ie: youre only seeing the end of the fuselage & the sun's reflection on the side, rather than seeing the whole length of the plane's fuselage itself from end to end. this would also explain the lack of visible wings - but hey, who knows for sure?

i would like to know what makes you think the contrails are in fact chemtrails though - i have not seen anything that even resembles some of the "chemtrails" i have seen in usa & european skies.

once again From Downunder, it could be the plane idea. but the thing about that is that i recall see no such plane in the sky at the time. there HAD been chemtrails being laid down so perhaps it could be that plane but it just really doesnt look like that to me - it seems very round IMO.

and of course there is numerous reports of orbs being seen in conjunction with chemtrails...so thats kind of what im starting to think.

and very quickly, i agree, what is seen in the States is MUCH worse than the chemtrails we have here. we tend to have a limited spraying program, but a spray program none-the-less. With a hot summer predicted i expect to see a lot of hazy days created by the spraying in an attempt to combat harsh UV rays... if you're really keen i can email you a 12 page piece which i have found invaluable in helping to form my opinion on chemtrails. Its by Jim Phelps of www.DOEwatch.com.

but lets get back to opinions on these pics
still would love some more opinions

Had to type this in a new post because the other post was full with all the exif data... lol.

My software shows that the image comes directly from the camera and hasn't been altered in any way.

Also I believe when someone wants to photoshop it they would make it more clear than these pictures.

I mean if I had to fake a picture you would see a huge flying disk with flashing lights and all.

Hey Srsen


I wonder just a little bit, whether what you have seen relates to recent security rehearsals with regard to the upcoming APEC conference in Sydney

Who knows what kind of craft a certain APEC member *cough*theUS*cough* might have patrolling the place and protecting "their interests"

Peace

Rilence,

nice point - who knows, the timing is certainly coincidental and they ARE going massively out of their way to ensure security.

BUt with the photo being the way it is, the objects could be anything.

Tho i could imagine some kind of top secret surveillance (spelling?) drone being employed during the APEC conference, such a drone would likely use some kind of cloaking so as to not stand-out, so its a chance.
