How does posting some UFO videos on youtube equal an income?
I encourage others to come to Tucson sometime and enjoy the beauty here.

Anyway, I posted on her page on You Tube an invitation to join ATS.
Also, that we think she's a hoaxer...
A digital camera has a electronic image sensor that converts light into an electronic signal. If an object is very bright, it can overwhelm the sensor. If you watch video shot with early digital video cameras, you'll see very bright lights show up on the recording as a bright vertical line. The engineers who designed cameras decided that wasn't a useful failure mode so they wrote instructions into the camera to shut off the pixels that got hit with the too bright light. Hence the black dot where the sun should be.

Apparently there is a new hoaxer on Youtube by the name of "sheilaaliens". Her profile describes her a model, photographer, paranormal researcher, and she posts quite a few videos she makes herself of strange lights she sees.
The problem is, I know exactly what she is filming since I live just down the street from her here in Tucson. Her "aliens orbies" are just cars driving down from Mt Lemmon after dark. The road is a nice gradual drive that heads up Mt Lemmon, rising up to the east on a twisting path. About 4 miles up is a pullout called Babat Duag point, where many go to watch the amazing sunsets here in Tucson.
She just posted two videos dates 8/20 where she said Tucson was covered in chem trails all day making it hazy at night. However, if you go to the UA webcam site, you can see pictures of the sky taken every hour/24 hours....and they dont show these chem trails at all. When confronted with that, she quickly blocks me.
So, please take any videos posted by the "sheilaaliens" with a grain of salt. They all can be explained as just normal lights/traffic/aircraft filmed by a drunk model.

Thanks for clearing that up
I was sure it was something about that.
So its also possible that some CCD cells burn out, and that explains the "stars" in the Eiffel tower picture? If so, would'nt these be black then ?
Why are there white spots on my image?
This is a result of low lighting. The imaging sensor chip is not getting enough light. The imaging processor utilizes the existing light and lengthens the exposure. As a result, white spots, noisy pixels or general image noise may appear. Indoor Solution: Open the iris more. Outdoor Solution: Limit the "maximum exposure" to 2000 and/or provide additional lighting.
