I tried posting these pictures on the 23rd but it ended up getting deleted because I didn't have 20 posts yet. So now that I have over 20, here
I believe this was the night of August 22nd, it could've been the 21st though. Don't remember. I was driving over to my dads house, he lives in a
gated community. I got to the gate and looked up just over the houses and saw a VERY bright light, brighter than usual. It had a small thin
"protrusion" at the bottom of it. Looked like a "beam" coming off of it. It didn't extend to the ground or anything, so I know it wasn't a
helicopter spotlight or whatever sort of light from an airplane.
I went through the gate, drove up the street and parked by his house...got out of the car and stared at it. I had never seen anything that bright
before. It looked like it was moving, but very slow. This COULD have been an illusion, and the protrusion at the bottom could have been an
"illusion" (you know when you stare at a bright light and see the "rays" coming off of it). I did not have a camera on me, so I got his camera.
It is a Nikon D50, 6.1 megapixel (NOT a cheap camera!) I mounted it on a tripod in the backyard and took a couple pictures of this light in the
By the time I had found his camera and set everything up, about 10 minutes had passed. Within that time, the light had moved off to the right. This
could be due to the rotation of the earth, I'm not sure. This was not the moon, this was not an airplane. I usually see a light in the sky that's
brighter than the rest...usually attribute it to a satellite or the space station, but this was way brighter than anything I've seen in the sky.
I'm trying to figure out whether it was a planet or what?? I do believe in UFO's / extraterrestrials, but I don't believe this was an alien craft.
It COULD be, don't get me wrong...but I don't think it is.
I took 2 pictures. The first one, the light was on in the house and illuminated the shed (as you can see)...the second one, I turned the light off.
I used the night time setting, so the shutter stayed open for a good 10 seconds or so, taking in all the light it could. When I looked at the first
picture I was dumbfounded...there are TWO lights in the picture - I could only see ONE with the naked eye. In the second picture (taken a minute or
so apart) there is only one light. Also, I have included pictures to show where the light was to begin with, and then where it was after the 10
minutes it took me scrambling around.
I'm not sure how to post pictures on here, so here are the links. Maybe someone can help??
