( post moved from buried thread )
Firstly, I believe that the images are of much less value than the method - or thoughts further provoked. I really don't care much about the
'Interstellar' video content - Mr. Walson's endeavouring to become a billionaire over this.... etc. And I truly don't want to become embroiled in
the controversy of this debate. It is simply that myself - and now - daily, more around the globe are coming forth with simple images... taken over
their homelands - that bear a certain simularity.
The equipment I used to get my modest little images - was a mere hand-held Canon Power Shot Digital Elph SD750. I don't know all of the specs of the
CCD ... etc. I did 'zoom in' - which in my case - was a max of 12 X.
This object was located in the southwestern sky - approximately 20 degrees up on the horizon - below - and in the general vicinity of the
constellation 'Orion.' It was completely visible to the naked eye. Time of the sightings were regularly between 2100 and 2300 hrs - EST, USA.
If folks go to the following ( and forementioned ) hyperlink - they can left-click on the images - and this will open up files that are 7.1 megs of
These aren't random chance sightings. There is a childishly-simple approach that we are taking to find what I refer to as 'Chameleon Stars.' I call
them this... not because the hide against a background... but because they apparently change colors. They continue to be odd-looking & moving,
relative to the rest of the 'ordinary' stars.
They are flashing reds, blues and greens - when all of the rest are pale white. As I look into a clear night sky - I scan across the horizon -
investigating each azimuth - and always, with my naked eye - can I find 2 or 3 standouts - they are almost always literally in the four corners of the
sky. As I watched them closer - I would sometimes see small specks of light seemingly jumping off of them. It almost appears as if they are spinning.
The first time I noticed them was back in 1994, over Los Angeles, california. When I looked at one through a telescope... it looked like a cardboard
roll... like when the TP is all gone from the restroom. Not being funny really... that was the shape of it. Another time... I found one that looked
like the 'Bat plane' - and I later saw the exact shape on a video taken by a space shuttle mission. Was odd coincidence.
This has been around for a very long time.
Actually, resumed shooting these images - a couple of months ago. I now have a catalogue of them for verification posted. I have also been posting a
diary of my observations ( with pictures ) on a thread at UFOcasebook. Go down the following page about half-way... and look for the 'notched disk'
image. The story will commence there.
So, in conclusion - it is my belief that all Mr. Walson is doing is; ( with the aid of a high-powered zoom lens - a 'High 8' or better videocam -
[Fugitron would be perfect... but cost prohibitive.])
1) Visually locating the 'chameleon stars'
2 ) Aligning the object into his viewfinder --
3) Fully 'racking-out' the 'zoom' to 'infinity'- then disabling 'auto focus' function -
4) And pressing 'record'
After that, some manual camera tracking may be required as well.
I say that anyone can do this. I don't know.... or really care about Mr. Walson and his videos. I just know what I saw and recorded. I firmly believe
- with similar images coming from across the world - that it is the same thing.
Nothing is truly debunked in a message forum. Topics can only be pro or con to the general concensus. Aggresive posters implying 'Because I said so'
- means absolutely nothing.
Just my opinion
to make title more obvious relative to the topic
