I was taking pictures at a Festival in Nottingham, UK on the night of 4th August 2007, I've just uploaded them to my computer and noticed what appears to be a UFO on one of the pictures. Obviously it could be a reflection or something but I wanted to check in case it was actually a UFO.

There are 3 pictures spanning 23 seconds, the object appearing in the third picture :

The first picture taken at 21:39:01 -

i51.photobucket.com...

The second picture taken at 21:39:17 -

i51.photobucket.com...

The third picture taken at 21.39.24 -

i51.photobucket.com...

It could be anything but it does look a bit like a UFO when zoomed in!

Ive just checked and it doesn't look very clear when scaled down on photo bucket, how do I upload the raw file?

Do you have a higher resolution picture available? And did you notice the object when you were present at the location or afterwards when uploading the pics?

Iam no photo expert.However the third picture is of a different view than the first two.As for an object or UFO in that image,there is no way anyone could tell.It is but a small blurry speck in the distance.


I'll leave this one to the experts who can dissect an image to death for you.

Didn't notice it at the time, how would i upload the higher resolution because photo bucket scales it down?

Hi Nick,

Im from Nottingham and was at the riverside festival!! how exciting lol.

I indeed saw several of these objects.. I was standing halfway between the suspension bridge and Trent bridge and there were 9 or ten of them.

At first I got excited about them and pointed them out but after watching them rise from the west bridgford area and rise and move across towards trent bridge, It was clear that they were most likely chinese lanterns.

They rose form the same area and moved a t a regular speed until they eventually burnt out after a minute or so each.

I honestly did get my hopes up when i first saw them though.

(By the way this sighting was on the Saturday night about 30 mins before the fireworks, I'm presuming this was around the same time/day)?

I know i just thought i would attach the other two as it's sort of the same direction around the same time.

I know it could be anything just wanted to check

Yeh i was quite disappointed. I may not be bang on aboout the time.. i'd been in the beer tent lol.

If what you saw was the same then it would have had a steady intense orange glow moving at a steady speed before burning out.

Glad you brought it up though because I considered taking photo's and posting them here myself.

Okay so I understand they were probably lanterns... lol... still a pretty sight though...

This is the info from photobucket itsself about uploading



Why is the image that I just uploaded smaller than the original?


Check your uploading 'options'. You probably have a smaller size selected than you thought.

Before uploading your images to your Photobucket account, choose either a display or file size that is equal to or larger than that of your images.

You can do this by clicking on the 'options' link in your upload panel and then on the radio button next to your preferred size. If an option is greyed out, this means the option is not available for your Photobucket account type.

Selecting a size larger than your images will prevent further resizing upon upload and help expedite the upload process. Be sure to click the 'Save' button after making a change to ensure that the new option is selected.

If you choose to use the file size options, the file size of the original image will take precedence over the the display size and any display size is accepted as long as the file size is less than your choice in the 'Uploading Options'.

Images already in your account will not be modified. This setting will be used for all future images uploaded to your account.

I think that the first photo also shows something like the third photo.

Judging by the type and size of the "object", I think the most probable cause is a reflection on the lens, but I am not an expert, just a guy who likes to talk about eveything.

HaHa well I didn't even realize until I just uploaded them to my computer, I'm still hoping that this isn't a lantern though


ambushrocks:

I'll upload the original, even though it might not be worth it if it is indeed a lantern


Really struggling to find a site that will upload the pictures as they are without scaling

Interesting shot Nick!

As has already been mentioned, it really could be anything, but I am still sceptical.

As mentioned by FiftyFifty it could be a 'Lantern' as this seems to be a favourite debunk at the moment, although they are usually in groups I have been told, and this one seems to be quite large as it appears to be way behind the buildings from the apparent scale of the photo it would have to be a big lantern.



It also appears to be particularly triangular in shape, is that a typical lantern shape?



Anyway, pretty inconclusive without some more photo's of what FiftyFifty saw that night.

I would keep an open mind for now maybe somebody else took a few snaps.

Edit: Also moving quite rapidly seeing as it appeared in the last few seconds of a 23 second series.

You can try Snapdrive.

I have not used it until today, but they accept direct linking and files up to 100MB.

Know what ? I am 100% shure it was a lantern i live in West Yorkshire seen em.

They burned out!!

I knew as soon as i saw them they were blatent.

No offence but man those were lantern's forgive me.

If you think you saw anything other than lantern's please enforce it. I beleive what you beleive but be shure!!!

Regard's
Lee

It's a shame it could just be a lantern, but still i thought I would share just in case, and as xSMOKING_GUNx said it must have been moving fairly quickly, how fast do lanterns normally move? I don't recall it being particularly windy, it was actually quite a pleasant night!

h3akalee, you know what you are probably correct, which is a shame


It still would be nice if someone could analyze it on the off chance it's not a lantern, would be nice to prove either way!

Edit: Managed to finally get the un scaled versions online:

Picture 1

Picture 2

Picture 3

If theres any point seeing as it's been practically debunked

I like it! First off, what a beautiful night scene! Love it! As for the object - wow what a good catch! I've seen similar objects recently in other photographs, with a 'lit up' central section. Perhaps other ATS members have seen it too. I wish I could remember where I saw it - perhaps on a thread right here!


Anyway, great pictures, great post. Flagged!

Well it's good to know that others have seen similar, I really want it to be something other than a lantern, another thing I've noticed is it seems to be a bit too long for it to be a lantern?

Thanks

Has this star moved in 23 seconds or is it just the angle?

Hi again Nick,

I'll be honest.. looking at the unscaled picture, it looks less like the lanterns that I saw. The Light isn't as defined and I didn't see one in that area. Your right, there was barely any wind that night and I think that maybe You have captured something OTHER than the lanterns which I saw.

My other thought is maybe a small cloud reflecting the sun which is below the horizon. That is clutching at straws however and unlikely as the sky was crystal clear i believe.

Very interesting...

EDIT to say.. not sure about the star, it does appear ot have moved. There were a lot of aircraft flying over that night (East midlands Airport) so that could be the light ffrom a plane or reflection maybe.

ALSO.. i don't know i you have noticed but to the right of the main object in question, there is a wispy circle which is he same colour. Very faint but it is there (just after and above the green roof)
