Maussan interviews a guy who took this incredible picture in December 2007. It was published in the press too. The interview is in Spanish, but the image is quite impressive.

That ain't no helicopter. Jaime's stuff is good. Did you see the other thread with the Christmas ornament?

Christmas ornament? No, I must have missed that. Do you have a link?

Would love to know what the guest (I assume he took the photograph) has to say.

Interesting photo indeed, flag and star!

Just a thought, but when I go to a hill overlooking my city at night to get some really cool city lights shots, and adjust my shutter speed to leave it a little longer than I normally would to expose the dimmer city lights better I get stuff like this all the time.

There are two airports near where I photograph, and if it is foggy out (or hazy, can be very light, almost unnoticeable to the eye) the longer shutter speeds make the landing lights look like one big light.

Ye you could be on to something there.
The lights from the cars in the bottom left corner of the photograph seem awefully stretched out. It might just be an airplane photographed with a longer shutter speed.

good input !

I think you are right. When taking a photo like that of a city by night. You cant get that light unless you have 2 seconds or more shutter time. If you set the aperture to 10 and iso to 100 you have all the time in the world to add a fancy light.

Once again I find myself compelled to post and say... Just because something MIGHT look like something else it doesn't necessarily mean it is, and just because something MIGHT have been done in a certain way it doesn't necessarily mean it was.

I think we should all keep that in mind when offering explanations for phots/vids/anecdotes. All to easy, and way WAY far to common here, to categorize something as 'explained' or 'debunked', when all people have done is suggest a possibility... NOTHING MORE, just a possiibility.

Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater here, folks

If it's an aircraft, then why is it stationary? if your shutter speed is slow you would expect to see some motion blur while the object moves along it's flightpath.

IMO that doesn't hold water.

What's wrong with doing a thorough investigation by pointing out other things that this photo CAN be? I thought thoroughly investigating a claim is one of the hallmarks of ATS?

Nobody in the UFO community is doing themselves any favors if they are totally close-minded to all explanations for a possible sighting. In fact the opposite is true: if a UFO investigation embraces all possibilities, and explains away all of the mundane until all that is left is an unexplained sighting, then that sighting becomes much closer to becoming a valid and real UFO (although not necessarily ET in origin.)

Hmmm. Seems a lot like what was discussed here...

A helicopter in long-exposure...

Interesting photo.

Can anyone give those of us who do not speak Spanish, the gist of the information that was presented in the interview?

Thanks!

Comapre the following two pictures:



First one is the one in discussion in this thread.
Second one is a picture of a helicopter, taken with long exposure.
Find any similarities?

Jaime Maussan is a joke, every single picture he analyzes ends with the same conclusion: 'It can't be explained, so it must be ET'. If you guys knew spanish, and watched every single video of this guy, you woud laugh, I'm dead serious about it. I would have been happy to translate this video if he wasn't there, but he is, so sorry about it. But just to give you an idea, he is trying to relate a minor blackout in the city with the picture shot by Mr. Alvarado.

Yeah this guy is more than a joke... every footage i've seen from him was already debunked or cgi, there is one of him here with the chile incident, which is nothing more than an air force show, the second part is a white dot flying around a volcano, you can clearly see that this dot have nothing real, it's just cgi, ihave seen others footage and yeah i just went to laugh, especially when he speak english.

It's only an opinion but it looks like a 'blimp', i have seen small ones orbiting my local football stadium probably for the sky tv cameras; does anyone know if a sporting event was on and in that area that night?

The most striking feature to me was the illumination, was it caught in a searchlight? or self-lit?; the light helps make out the oval shape which to me is predicatble of a blimp.

The clip plays in spanish? is there an English translation online?

Hello goosdawg
I speak fluent spanish

In the interview when asked by Jaime the photojournalist clearly states that he heard no noise what so ever of any kind from the object he was taking a picture of, so this rules out helicopters [who usually make a racket] and airplanes who have distintive sounds and he was well aware of this during the incident. There was also mention of a blackout during the sighting which was the reason for the photographer to be there in the first place. Jaime also notes that a simialar incedent occured in Cuernavaca Mexico in 1972 in which there was also a blackout during a UFO sighting by many people.

To me it looks like a desk lamp reflection coming from behind the photographer. I have a lamp just like that.
