You can notice that I would rather use this term than UAP or UFO
I recently came across someone opening different threads called "Globular Lightning caught on video" (in his own words but translated) in different
forums within the French speaking community.
I finally got a hold of him and brought it back in the forum where I am a moderator and here is the story that I want to share with you...
Mr x is a very talented amateur photographer specialized in Stormy weather.
Here is a blog where Mr X (Ablok aka Ablokos) posted some of his work :
I'll translate his testimony for you :
On November 5th, 2005, (time unknown) I was seating on the roof of my building in Nice in the French Riviera, filming a storm taking place at quiet
some distance from me. Once home, as I was watching the vidéo and just a few seconds after the lightning stroke, I saw some kind of reddish
"luminous tail" flying by very fast and changing trajectory.I could hear a sound at almost exactly the same time, like a whistle with a sound
frequency change as the "thing" turned.
Unfortunatly, a virus in my pc destroyed the video but luckily enough, I had time to split the film into frames before posting it in a few forums.
Now, about the camera :
Movie image resolution
VGA (640x480 pixels) at 13 fps
QVGA (320x240 pixels) at 20 fps (It was filmed using QVGA)
Now, the weather :
The exact place where the phenomena was filmed, on top on that flat gravel roof you see near the marker :
Original frames (4) that were posted in a few forums and saved that way (not enhanced) :
Now enhanced :
Now 4 in 1 :
and an animated GIF :
and a daytime photo taken from the exact same spot & direction +- :
As I am speaking, we are still questionning the "witness" but we know that
the event that was filmed lasted 1/4 sec.
Feel free to ask questions as I will be checking on this topic quiet often and I will be able to jump from one forum to the other to ask new questions
to the witness and keep you updated with fresh data.
to Internos : Hi there, I will get in touch with the ICPH regarding this matter very soon, just a few more things need to be checked before.
