Ahh... I LOVE these threads!
Although this topic or something similar shows up periodically on ATS, I never tire of it and it's always intriguing to read about the types of
"methods" folks use.
I only mention that because you may want to do a quick ATS search on "contacting aliens" or similar and see all the neat things that come up.
Perhaps you might want to post the better results or post links here for cross-reference.
In the meantime, one response that I've made previously involves the purchase, borrowing, or use of a Cinetheodolite, a missile/aircraft tracking
telescope that automatically locks on to, zooms in on, and films objects in the sky. You can bet that the black ops guys have 'em and they're not
just using them to track missiles.
Some guy shows up on the internet now and then and tries selling used ones on e.g., eBay, often listing it as a "UFO Catcher". There's
one on eBay right now!
if you have a couple hundred thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket. No? Maybe we can take up a
collection? I'll kick in the first Benjamin.
Anyway - if I can get enough serious folks together, I'd pitch in on buying one of these things and setting it up in, say south-central Nevada,
hooking some remote telemetry equipment to it and, well, see how much luck we have fishing for UFOs!
In any event - good luck with this everyone. Every time this topic pops up I learn something new. Myself I'm still using my trusty Meade Ex125 with
some electronic imaging piped to my laptop - but it's rough going and time-consuming to set up and maintain. What I'd really like is some
automation and tracking built-in - though I suspect my clock-drive would need major modification to track at just normal aircraft speeds, if at all.
Anyway - Keep us posted on your progress, folks - and keep looking up!
