Excellent post Foofstarr - starred and flagged!


I don't know what it is you filmed, but I can tell you what it wasn't.

Firstly, it wasn't a comet as a comet orbits the sun and moves very slowly (as viewed from Earth) and can be viewed over several months. The object was in the Earth's atmosphere, so again if it were a comet it would be rushing towards the ground and causing a Tunguska like blast.

Secondly it wasn't a meteor. Again it was moving too slowly and would have been heading towards the ground.

Thirdly, it was unlikely to be a boloid (or fireball) A boloid is a large fragment of rock that skims across the edge of the atmosphere - like a skimming stone on water. The youtube clip that Mosh_er added showed one of these. Partly it was yet again too slow moving, also a boloid would have a bright head which would (should) be clearly visible.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the posts again everyone


As for our friendly neighborhood troll, I'll only say this: I've been here on ATS for a damn long time now and the last thing i would do is post something knowingly hoaxed or fake.

As for it being a cloud... I'm pretty sure i can discern between a cloud and other objects in the sky. My father isn't a dumb man either, and he wouldn't call me outside to look at a damn cloud.

Now that I've got that out of my system, i think we may have solved the mystery. The illuminated contrail explanation makes the most sense. I didn't hear any aircraft, but it was a fair distance out so i doubt i would hear it.

In the enlargements internos posted you can just see something in front of the object... meaning it is probably a jet of some sort.

I guess i'll keep watching the skies (or getting dad to do it for me
) and hope i one day catch something truly unidentified!

I'm going to bounce out of here, but I wanted to add something...

I was going to add a thread yesterday, because I saw a U.F.O., but I didn't for two reasons. One, I am not sure if it was a rocket leaving the local A.F. base, (Vandenberg) and second, I didn't catch it on film. I know, I know, after all my talk of being ready all the time. But it did open my eyes to one thing. After I saw this ufo, I RAN to go get Tim and my camera. After only 10 SECONDS, of being inside, NADA. It was a streaking upward light that gained momentum and was gone in 10-12 seconds.

My point is this.... Had I even gotten accidental video of this, as getting a camera powered on would have proven impossible, it would have been near impossible for any credible way to identify it. Kudo's to you, Foo, for getting a video of anything, and to the rest of you, sans troll, for keeping your wits and identifying it. I'm so tired of these threads with no evidence and just a story (indiana) that get 50 flags, where as this group kept it's head.
But don't worry, you will get my flags and diggs when the time is right. Meanwhile, accept my stars with open arms!

Being near Vandenberg it was almost definitely a missile or rocket.

As for the OP's video, my first impression was a meteor but it was more probably a plane and the sun playing with the contrail.

I agree, but being a military man, I just noticed the unnatural way in which the object gained velocity.

Hi fooffstarr, I have seen the same thing you videotaped. I live in Canada and viewed this object about 1 month ago. The object was about 10 km away and about 500m above the ground. Sky was clear, sunny, no haze. To describe the object, just look at your vid. The only difference is that my object was a little brighter. I contacted the airport and asked if any aircraft was in that area or flights in/out. nada, nothing, not even aircraft flying over from other cities.
The kicker was that aircraft don't use that area for flight path.
I have seen planes reflecting the sun and this is not one. I would like to see this again. It reminds me of ancient accounts of fiery clouds.


I have had other sightings of other objects with picts and will post when I have time.

Wow. I have no clue. Is there anyway that is a plane and those are the contrails behind it?


I dunno leo but you do seem to be catching onto the big clue which is that it is reflecting the orangish glow that seems to be coming from the sun setting. That itself points to either a cloud or contrail in my eyes but it seems to be moving pretty quickly to be a cloud.

A contrail would probably explain it better because the contrail itself would dissipate at X distance from the aircraft, which could potentially give you this effect of the contrail's size remaining intact. Just pointing that out because the object never really changes size at all or anything that is noticeable anyway.

The original may show more detail of whatever this object is as well as whether or not there is even an aircraft present in front of the contrail (if that's what this is). If not then this seems to be a pretty anomalous cloud of some kind that is REALLY moving across the sky (which in and of itself leaves you scratching your head).

Unfortunately the youtube vid really doesn't have enough detail to provide any concrete answers IMO. However, there is enough detail IMO to conclude that it is a large object reflecting the setting sun's orangish light that more or less seems to not have any distinct edges (whispiness like a cloud or contrail). At least that's what we see in the youtube vid.

What you saw looks a lot like this:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

and this:

youtube.com...

And I know there's another thread here on ATS with something similar, in the bay area, CA. I just can't find the thread.

I used to see those at least once a week when I lived in Mackay. QLD. I know its pretty far away from where u are, but they always looked just like that, although the ones I saw never moved. It was always at the end of the day, so I just put it down to the sun on a cloud! very interesting!

So did we ever confirm that a jet had been passing by at that location and time? Sorry to bring it up again if this thread is closed for further discussion, I found it very interesting and not at all common.
Thankyou for sharing your video and internos excellent job well done!

I dunno but that seems to be the most likely culprit IMO. The aircraft may not have shown up in the youtube vid due to the quality degradation but the aircraft might be seen in the original if we analyze the vid closely enough (I'm currently taking a look at it actually).

This zoomed still shows alot of detail which I also think points to a contrail. Notice the apparent whispiness on the tail end and the likeness of an aircraft or other dark object at the front (the aircraft is traveling from left to right obviously).



You can barely make out the likeness of an aircraft and the only reason is because in a couple of frames the darker aircraft at the front creates an artifact. In the other frames it is really hard to tell if there is an aircraft there at all. This was also a simple screenshot of the actual frame in quicktime so the quality is lacking.

Here's the other ATS link related to this that I couldn't find previously:

Yeah i'm going with the contrail theory antar until it is proven otherwise, which i doubt it will be. It was never found out whether there would have been an aircraft flying in that area, but we occasionally see the airforces Hornets on training flights so maybe it was one of them a fair way away.

I'll keep a lookout tonight and see if anything similar shows up.

Anyway, this topic has made me proud to be a member of ATS. It is skeptical but open minded discussion like we've seen in solving my mystery that we need to see more of around here. Less radicals from both sides and just a civilized, scientific debate. So thanks again


The video will be left there if anyone wants to pick it apart but as far as I'm considered this is a case solved.

Hello fooffstarr!

Thank you for this thread. So, do you think that the things seen in the links I gave you are also contrails? I'm very interested in this because I also saw something that looked like what you saw, except for as far as I could tell, it wasn't moving. Can contrails just sit in the air? I'm not so sure that your assessment of "case closed" is accurate. At any rate, it's not closed for me.

Allow me to amend my last post ... do contrails keep moving, at a fairly rapid clip or do they just sit there?

if they were dissipating at a constant rate, then yes, that can be contrails.

Um, not a one liner?

Thanks for the links, i didn't miss them. Ummm... i think they are in a similar situation as my video. Not enough information to make a 100% accurate assessment, but i'd say most likely the same thing as what i saw, whether that be the contrail theory or something else.

Thanks

Looks like a Chinese drone to me. The Chinese are masterful at hiding their spy drones in the early morning or early evening clouds like that all over Asia.

I agree with you mate...I live south again towards Sydney and we do see alot of hi alt cruising up the coast... you generally never hear them.... contrails are frequent these cooler days too, and that with the sun setting to the west, Id say you are spot on.

Just a note though, there have been heaps of military jets buzzing around here in and out of RAAF Williamstown, generally in pairs, due to Anzac day on Friday. May have been a few returning from up Queensland way.

Anyhow, great vid !

Never mind the hasslers.

Cheers
