The typical shutter speed on a handheld digital camera is 1/3 second.


Not in dark conditions. The "shutter" will stay open for as long as it takes the camera to record what it thinks is a good image.

Now, if the camera happens to move in that period of time, you'll get shadowing that looks like a double exposure. With the photo in question, the person opened the shutter for short period of time, then moved it to better match the path of the thing in the sky.

there are some that flash like this.

But none of them flash like this

You might want to check your local camera store. Best Buy has cameras for less than $70 (point and shoots) that have exposures up to 4 seconds.


Again, most stock hand held digital cameras have a maximum shutter speed of 1/3 second. It is simply too difficult for a person without a tripod to hold the camera steady for longer than 1/3 second, and that's why most digital cameras do not even allow you to configure the shutter speed. They adjust it for the surrounding light level, and they max it out at 1/3 second.

I'm not going to argue this fact any longer. This photograph does not show a helicopter strobe light. I've given at least four valid reasons why we're not looking at a helicopter here.

Impossible to tell what it is because of the long exposure time and high ISO.

I would say a regular commercial aircraft.

I would say post it in a photography forum and they could probably tell you right away the exposure and ISO used (maybe even what camera)

Intimately familiar with the strobe patterns of all Chinese aircraft nav lights, are you?

You don't know what type of craft it is. You don't know the direction of travel. You don't know the speed. You don't know whether it accelerated, decelerated, or changed orientation during the exposure. You don't know how stable the camera was. You don't know the exact shutter speed.

Seems the only thing you do know is that it's definitely NOT a helicopter.

This post is about as convincing as it gets.

Yes it does. Here's some other long exposures of helicopters.

The top picture is not consistent with the others. The "tail" trails behind the object in the top picture while the other two have no visible trails and no lights are shining onto the ground. though If a helicopter, it could be shining its light out into the sky, and that would disregard it as a tail. The light patterns (if they are lights) are not consistent with the light patterns of the bottom two pictures. Assuming the top object is traveling, the bottom two appear to be stationary/hovering.

You do know that the spotlight on the front of choppers is articulated, right? Ever watch COPS? It would be a real hassle if they had to point the nose of the chopper at the perps to spot them.




It's guaranteed that no two shots will be exactly the same because no to vehicles are moving exactly the same. And if you look closely at the first shot... the one of the alleged "UFO", you'll see that the buildings are double exposed, indicating that the camera was also moved during the exposure, so that's another source of variance.

I like how it looks like it has windows. Almost man-made i would think.

Even so, That still would not account for the tail and or spotlight. Of every over exposed helicopter picture I have seen in this thread, they all have lights pointing down. This one appears to have no lights pointing down. So lets assume its traveling: That would mean its a tail. If assuming its a spotlight then its pointed to the left. Even in the pictures you posted, there is some pattern to the lights on the object, where as the alleged UFO has no distinct patterns of lights.

"Chinese aircraft nav lights"? Did you just ask me if I knew "Chinese strobe patterns"? You are obviously not a pilot, my friend.

Who has verified that the pictures you posted are "long exposures of helicopters"? You have posted two random pictures. And the pictures you posted do not contain the irregular 2-2-1 pattern of lights that the photograph in question contains. I have written about how this pattern rules out the light coming from a consistently flashing strobe.

I believe you are the only person here trying to convince people to believe this object is a known helicopter. I am not taking an approach that requires me to know beforehand what this object is, as you are.

Actually, your theory doesn't hold water. According to you, the flashing light pattern could only be 2,2,2.....and because it is 2,2,1 it is otherworldly?

There isn't the chance that the image only captured 5 of the flashes, and not 6 because the shutter of the camera was only open for the duration of 5 of the flashes?



I think the other pictures shown here easily prove it was more likely a conventional aircraft, and not a 5 strobe ufo from the planet niburu.

you lost me at "china airport" there is only 1 airport in china - dang!

also it's pretty clear the Chinese have taken Disney's aerial tramway to a whole other level

Tell me where I said this object was an 'alien spacecraft'? I did not say this. You are the one telling people you "know" what the object is. I don't know what it is, and neither do you.

Finally, regarding the 2,2,1 pattern, yes, this proves the lights are not a camera artifact, exposure related, or otherwise. The one single light at the end is not space evenly with the other two sets of lights, indicating this photo did not capture a consistently flashing strobe. The pattern also proves that this was not a motion artifact, as I explained above. Whatever was photographed in the sky had this pattern of 5 lights on it.

I notice a couple of things in regard to the strobe spacing.

It is apparent that the camera moved at some point during the exposure. Note the doubled powerlines and rooftops. This accounts for the different spacing of the strobe "hits".

The "single" strobe could be a result of two things; a) it was at the beginning or end of the exposure, meaning its "partner" was missed or b) it is hidden behind the powerline.

Can't recall saying I was. You, however, do profess to be a physicist... a claim I am finding increasingly difficult to accept.



Oh, and if you bothered to read the quote source you'd see that the comparison photos were posted by someone else [freelance_zenarchist ].

funny how people keep speculating when it's a known fake, hell go read eve online or scrapheap-challenge forums lot of people make these hoax pics using spaceships from in game and blurring them up in photoshop and placing them into scenes. There's even one of our ships next to statue of liberty looks really good.

pretty funny when gamer's fun photo forum threads gets picked up on a conspiracy theory site

I just tried to access an update on China news and got a security warning. Haven't had a security warning for ages, ???????




My software did detect the thread and deleted it.

Umm, did you happen to notice the blur of the building? Does that mean the building rooflines dont space evenly with the rest of the buildings, so they are part of a UFO too?

Also, notice those pesky power lines? The ones that kinda intersect where the other light might be?

I'd like to add a very poorly photoshopped pic to clear up the situation. At first reading this thread I wasn't really feeling the helicopter explanation.

However after looking at several pics online it's quite obviously a helicopter. If you look at the picture bellow the rotor, tail and spot light fit the light patterns and positions perfectly. On the right is a quick and dirty edit duplicating the copter to simulate a long exposure, and you can clearly see the same formations etc (bearing in mind light flashing patterns have been ignored). The fact that the red light on the original image also matches the higher position of the orange light show here makes it pretty obvious.





So i think we need to stop with the arguing, surely the more important thing now is why the airport was shut down for a single helicopter? So who could have been on it that it was SO important to shut down the entire airport?
