JaredDee, thank you for sharing your images
hsur2112 has already posed you some interesting questions:
i would also be interested in knowing the weather conditions
and if you recall some other phenomena, like for instance noises, strange behaviours in the animals, etc even before/after the sighting.
Is VERY hard to say what type of phenomenon we are looking at in these images.
The first image of these two recalls me the one taken in Oswego on Friday, April 11 2008
see thread here
There are some differences between the two shots:
for example, the one from Oswego had an exposure time of 0.5 sec, (f/5.9): your ones have an exposure time of 1/8th sec, (f/2.8).
I've tried to make comparisons with some of the presently known LTPA
(Luminous Transient Phenomena in the Atmosphere), but so far ive been able just to rule out Ball lightning, Atmospheric electricity, Earth lights,
Earthquake lights , Ignes fatui and besides NOT in a conclusive way at all:
each one of the mentioned phenomena may have many different appearances, since they are phenomena heavily conditioned by a huge list of variables.
It SEEMS that this phenomenon is being reported from many different places, but i don't want to jump to the conclusion that IS the same
I've sent a link to your documentation to a group that researches the LTPA in northern europe:
they will be able to make comparisons with many more cases than i'm able to,
but there's no warranty that they will come to any conclusion.
Regarding the picture posted by Black Projects (BTW thanks for the U2U)
here are some better versions:
If i'll get some response from the research group, i'll post it here.
