I have some little experience in photographing airplanes and stuff on the sky, as an amateur glad with his toy (a zoom camera) and attracted more or
less on what's up in the sky.
This experience tell me that even trivial phenomenons, like insects, birds, airplanes, stars etc can appear strange on photos, in favorable
, like perspective, technicall settings, angles, illumination, atmospheric conditions, tendency to overlook at the pixel level where
the dilution of the enough descriptive information favour the mistery etc.
That's why, i feel you more or less like me, when taking pictures on the sky, and finding anomalies at the pixel level...i used to do this ..well not
anymore, because my family duties consume my time now. I have a collection of airplanes with or without contrails, up in the sky or low on the
horizon, visible or strange in shapes or even invisible in front of the contrails etc.
I just want to tell that when using more an more megapixels, and more and more zoom, this push further the boundary of the capturing...now even planes
or birds very further can be captured on photo, as orbs or strange shapes.
Just one older example of mine... how a trivial airplane, flying maybe at 5 ..10 km up or so, without contrails, can appear later on the photo, when
sunlight angles and perspective, along with powerfull optical zoom (12x) can stretch the things.
The following picture shows the same plane, and the time marks when the photo was taken, together with some relevant EXIF data (F-number, exposure
here another external version, since ATS media portal recompresses too much the file adding some jpeg artifacts):
While when up from my head, the plane is easy to understand, later, when much far away and low to the horizon, along with sun glare on its body, the
shape became much more "anomalous".
So, in your pictures, since there are some airports, so, some aerial roads there, i thing you have quite a good show of airplanes there, and, if you
happened to be a curious person photographying things in the sky, you can find easy "anomalous" objects
Could be an airplane/helicopter, with sun reflecting for periods on the windows/shiny parts of the body... or some other things in the sky, mundane
ones, which ussually goes unnoticed, but with enough resolution, zoom and patience they show in the photos...I have many reasons to accept this
version, but first is the good probability of this (mundane things)
Could be alien/misterious non-human things? Well, it could be, but, with low probabilities (it is not mundane), and unless better and more
resolution/pictures, proper analysis (EXIF data, maps, timings etc), i'm afraid we will only remain with the hope and wonderings.
