Strange Craft

Hey guys and galz, this is my first post and i felt that this would be the right place to ask some questions concerning a craft I recently snapped a photo of. Basically to sum up the whole incident I was chilling out with some friends in the woods one late night and suddenly I noticed a strange craft creeping across the sky. It was moving at a fairly slow rate of speed and did not seem to exhibit a sound. I proceeded to take a photo of this craft with my digi-cam and caught a fairly good shot of it. Later that night I returned to headquarters and uploaded the image on the computer and was able to look at the craft in more detail. ALL I can say is that this is one of the strangest looking crafts I have ever seen in my life and that includes all UFO´s Ive seen on the net.

This is where the A.T.S. community comes into play -- I am asking for your help in determining what this craft could be. Is it a top secret experimental plane? Or could it be from a place far, far away.....

I would also like to mention that if you save the image and then proceed to open it within an image viewer then zoom in on the object you will be able to make out its physique fairly better (and you will notice another craft which me and my friends did not originally see)

There's really not much to see or work with here.

resized to 640X480 w/ some enhanced lighting:

Might be able to see or say more if you could upload the raw image from the camera.

Other than that ... dunno.

When/where was this photo taken?

If you view the enlarged version of this photo within the link I posted which is 1024px X 768px in size then save the photo and zoom in on it you will be able to decipher the appearance a little better. If you would be kind enough to apply that light filter to the enlarged version and post it for us to see I would appreciate it.

Somewhere in Texas....

That's just what I did. Saved the full-size version, enhanced the lighting, and then resized it to fit the forum image guidelines.

Any chance of getting the raw image file from the camera (card)? Even the full-size (1024X768) version is only 105Kb. Not much to work with ... too low-res.

If your photo sharing site has a size limitation.
Try cropping the important portion of the image, and upload that too.

There's not a lot to work with.
But cropping a section would give us an enlarged view of the area in question.

Oh I see... the memory card in which the original photo is saved on is being used in my friends camera so at the moment I will not be able to grab the original shot(high resolution). Sometime tomorrow I´ll try to obtain my memory card and upload it.

I provisionally enhanced just the two objects abd a little increased the otherness, hope it's better than nothing...

Edit to add pic:

Nice job resizing and editing the photo man, this allows for a much better view.

These are stars.
They left random trail due to shaking of the camera and long exposure.

Nope, I can assure you the main object of interest is not a ¨star¨ or ¨stars¨. I can see how you came to that conclusion regarding the ¨otherness¨ object being a group of stars although the object of main interest looks nothing like a star . As for you saying the object is distorted due to the camera shaking, your wrong. I took a dead still shot of this object and it looked basically the same way as it first appeared when I witnessed it originally.

Finally, a post about mys. . . . oh.

The arc seems to be repeated at the exact same angle 3 times in the "shape" that seems to be the focus. Definity hints at a couple or three stationary light sources, accompanied by camera motion.

What about the treeline, etc? Is there anything in the photograph that does NOT share that arc shape??

I think the important thing with any member's photographs is to have access to the original file/negative. Not only will this have more information than any compressed or edited version, things like long exposure can be ruled out.

Are you able to provide the original version?

Looks like a pterodactyl but we'll probably never know, unless it comes back in the day time and you get another shot at it.

posted on Sep, 7 2007 @ 03:15 PM
Wow that is really strange. If not a star like the others suggested it doesn't quite fit any other known aircraft. It's just plain weird.

I wouldn't fall for the pterodactyl theory!

Well, took a quick look at this one. I thought stars with a long shutter time myself. Problem is, there are other stationary stars in the picture. I see at least three after brighting and playing with contrast in photoshop.

That doesn't rule out another light source which in itself moves, creating the two objects with a long exposure. I've got a few of those when taking pictures of stars and an airplane crosses over my shot :-) I can't think of any off the top of my head though that would dance around in just a small arc.

This is an intriguing shot.
