Were you skyfishing? It's been a while since I skyfished, it's rare to see clear blue skies here but I've gotten pictures of strange things, the
strangest is my avatar, found here (or further below)
Stock photo of regular skyfishing scene, Image 4 in a 4 image
burst setting, with a picture taken less than a second each shot.
The start of a 4-image burst, this is Image number 1. Notice the
UFO coming into the scene at the right.
Image number 2. As you can see the unidentified object is travelling from right
to left, angling upward.
Image number 3. This is the 'Angel' image. In an time span of about an
second, this apparition appears. At the same time the UFO is continuing on its path.
Image number 4. This is the final shot of the burst, and the
'Angel' has disappeared, but the UFO is still in the shot, still on its way.
the burst ends at this point, and this final shot is the aftermath.
The best skyfishing days are clear, blue day with the sun out, I expect that the sun helps highlight any objects in the sky, but not too much that
your camera sensors are blinded if you could block off the area around the sun and get your photos of the area around the blocked off sun.. great!
I don't know what the object is in my image set... cotton fluff, ufo, angel, who knows... I also have these images from a few years ago, I don't
know if these two older pictures contain the same object as these pictures were taken about 30 seconds apart.
Image006- looking towards West Vancouver
Image 009- object sighted in the direction over my roof.
See the Rod-shaped thingy?
I've taken about 300-400 images with about 2 dozen hits, seen bugs and birds, and they don't look like any of the anomalies I included.
Happy Skyfishing! But outdoors... no matter how cold it is
I live very near Vancouver, BC, it might depend on how active your area is.
