Hello ATS'ers. Here's a video clip that was used in the UFO Hunters new season and brand new episode called "Dark Presence." The clip itself can
be seen within the first 5 minutes of the episode, and the UFO Hunters also used additional footage within that same episode of original owner's
(Mike73173's) material. Anything listed as "Bloomington, Indiana" within the episode "Dark Presence" was provided by Mike73173. According to
information provided, the UFO Hunters will be using additional footage of Mike73173's for later episodes as well. Mike's footage can be found on
psychox642's youtube account. Additionally, Mike's footage has been requested by other sources including The National Geographic Channel.
All footage was screened by UFO Hunters video analyst professionals for authenticity. There are no digital effects, no questionable camera work, all
extraneous variables such as insects have been ruled out. THIS IS REAL.
Here is the description as provided on the account.
Used in first 5 minutes of episode "Dark Presence" by the UFO Hunters. Episode concentrates on sections of Indiana (Bloomington, Kokomo, Peru) as
well as 2 other states and specifically addresses the orb phenomenon. Screened by professionals for credibility, and authenticated as REAL. In other
words, no camera effects, all extraneous variables are ruled out such as insects, manipulation, camera glare, refraction, trick photography, or
computerized digital effects. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL. Filmed in Bloomington, Indiana. 4 friends in Bloomington film a flying orb. While filming a
fluctuating light (possible UFO) above the trees next to a home, a light bounces over a semi truck in an adjoining field. Camera man sees it and then
switches to infra red in order to get a better look. The light shoots from the rear of the field into the passengers side door of an abandoned
semi-truck in the field. Within a split second, the light shoots from the opposite rear side of the truck and then dives into the ground. The ORB
actually grows in size the farther it moves away from the camera.
I don't see what the filmer is describing at all. I see a star or planet maybe, an airplane with lights blinking from my right to left above it, and
what appears to be a couple of blasts from a roman candle originating from behind the parked rig. Am I missing something?
What a pantload.... if you clip and enlarge the "orb" section, it is obviously some kind of bug i.e. grasshopper, lit up by the light source to the
right. Just before the "orb" part you can see another one fly in and drop into the grass. Geez....
Either that, or one of your buddies is behind the truck flicking matches, etc. Funny how it stops after you start yapping about "it's gonna spin
your head around..."
Watch what happens in the bulk of the video. The far away planet that you're referring to is a UFO. However, that is the least of what is going on
in the video. Just before the infra red turns on, you can see a light move in the back right. I may have to tell the owner of the vid to provide
annotations. After the infra red gets turned on and you're able to identify the semi-truck sitting in the field, a light shoots from the rear right
hand side of the field into the passenger side of the truck, then it shoots out of the rear left, (Driver's side from the opposite end.)
I'm sorry if you can't see it. Just watch carefully, or, full size it. I had the person put annotations on it so that it could make it easier to
identify. Yes I agree, it is hard to see at first. Just study the video, you will see it. The light moves quickly, but, its quite visible.
Wow, you're quite abrasive and negative aren't you??? He's Not my buddy. I wasn't there. Secondly, I have no idea how long this clip actually
lasts, it could be longer than this for all I know. But, at least you saw it. And by the way, video experts (real one's who have better imaging
technology than cropping) checked this stuff out before they put it on the UFO Hunters episode. Also, the light that you see, is all the same light.
Not two separate one's. It goes into the semi passenger door, and comes out of the other side. According to information I received, they ruled out
all variables, ie...insects, matches (wouldn't matches rotate when flicked? I guess we ruled that out.) and other light sources. So, if someone can
flick a match roughly half a football field in length, they are incredible...I want to see the guy who can do that. By the way, can you name a self
illuminating insect that flies that quickly and can span the length of a field in about a second??? In Indiana, there is only one self illuminating
insect (firefly, lightening bugs) And they fly extremely slow (If you're going to criticize, you need to study up on the geographic locations of an
area and find all variables that are consistent with that same location). And typically, where there is one firefly, there are thousands. You rarely
see one firefly in an entire field that increases its size to that of a softball. If you can provide evidence of a firefly that moves that fast, I'd
love to see it. Anyway, use the semi for a reference and measure the distance. And, As far as I know, UFO Hunters only showed a portion of the clip
and used quite a bit of other clips of the video owner's as well. Obviously he has some stuff of interest.
Sorry you didn't like it, but, I'm not going to get into a war about it. It's definitely your opinion. Thanks for checking it out.
Watching that episode made me think about the reports from Skinwalker Ranch. Even the story about an orb luring the three dogs away and liquefying
them was word for word from the Skinwalker Ranch history.
Even before the scene about the dog zapping I was thinking about how NIDS had a great deal of footage and witness reports about orbs with malicious
behavior and how after they had started investigating the phenomena at the ranch had slowly faded out.
I know this is far out and I'm not propagating it as a theory, just saying -what if the entity behind the incidents at Skinwalker Ranch moved
While I can't rule out someone "borrowing" the dog zapping orb story I also cannot rule out the possibility it happened again. If so, it would be
very compelling evidence for the same entity operating in both locations.
That said, I'm not aware of any evidence from the dog incident the UFO Hunters reported, no photos or vet report on the remains, nothing. If there
were we'd have one extremely interesting link to examine.
Yeah, it was a very interesting episode. I've never heard of anything like that before that episode, therefore, it was all news to me. However, I
found it interesting that this particular episode was more focused on fear. I had never seen that kind of content before on UFO hunters.
Calling night UFOs "orbs" doesn't make any sense. If the same UFO was seen n the daylight it would never be called an "orb." The name "orb"
was originally used in still photos where untrained people would look at the photos and would see optical effects that they started claiming were
spirit forms and some even go as far as saying that you can see faces, etc., in these optical anomalies.
What these failed to accept (and still do!) was that they created the "orbs" by using the camera's flash and not realizing that the flash
will bounce off any shiny surface including dust! It's lens flare. I always challenged the claims by telling the believers that next time they want
to take a photo, whether with a digicam or an emulsion film camera, to turn off the flash and let the spirits supply their own light!
Fell on deaf believers' ears. So go to any website featuring "ghost" photos and the majority of them will be these flash "orbs."
I watched the link posted by tristar, if that's the same thing then it looks like a couple of guys flicked their cigarette butts from right to left,
they glowed while traveling fast then when the air friction slowed them down they started falling and moving more slowly so they didn't glow as
brightly and faded out. I can't say for sure they ARE cigarette butts, but the motion and brightness would appear to be consistent with that
explanation. also the sources are not visible, so the source for the first one could be off the right hand side of the image, and the source for the
2nd one could be behind the semi.
Well, if it makes you feel better to think such a thing, then who am I to disrupt that theory?
However, plenty of video analysts have been all over this particular video. Trust me, the UFO Hunters aren't going to feature something on their
shows that will make them look foolish to the public. Now, as far as cigarettes go, the distance that is featured in the video would make it rather
hard to for anyone to flick something that far. The field in view is larger than about 3 football fields put together. Again, use the semi-truck as
reference of distance. That is one of the factors that should be taken into account while forging your opinion. Also, if it were a cigarette butt,
wouldn't you see rotation of the light? From the nature of a cigarette butt alone, they are long and would move end over end (the burning end would
be heavier than the filtered end causing a rotation). Right??? I definitely don't want to get into an argument because an opinion is an opinion and
you are perfectly welcome to your own. I'm just trying to get you to think about the logic and the physics of your statement. Go out sometime and
get a pack of Marlboros/Camels, or borrow one from a friend. Light it, and then flick it. Watch how the cigarette moves. Also, you should film this
to get it on tape (night time would be best) and play with distances. I can guarantee you, the farthest you will be able to flick a lit cigarette is
at a maximum of 12-15 feet. Also, you say that the sources are not visible. I can agree with that. If it is an actual spirit orb, where would the
source be? Also, you're failing to address the light before the infra red is even turned on. The first time that the light is seen comes right
before the camera man switches into infra red. You can see the light slowly, and in a controlled fashion bounce over the truck,more towards the rear
of the field at around 14 seconds when the camera man says, "he was all back there bright and impressive." (it isn't next to the truck but very far
behind it, but the depth of field would put it just above the truck.) And if you watch carefully from that point, the light shoots from the very rear
of the field (from the same point it is originally seen moving) into the passenger side of the truck. That would be quite a distance to accomplish
from flicking a cigarette. Study the video, it is pretty compelling. And, there is the other factor of the additional videos seen on that site who
are filmed by the same person. Those would be pretty damn hard to fake no matter who you are. Nonetheless, I thank you for checking out the video
and commenting on this post. Much appreciated. You have a good one and feel free to hit me up anytime.
