You mean not one of the resident experts has come along and solved this mystery? No swamp gas or balloons to believe in? I am shocked, SHOCKED I tell ya'!



Yep, I keep seeing these posts implying that this thread ''has the sceptics beat'' but the reason no one's chimed in with a reasonable explanation is because what we have here are out of focus, distorted blobs of light that could be anything, couple that with motion blur and I ask how is anyone expected to formulate a theory for what it was, there's not enough data for anyone to do so.

That has never stopped anyone before on ATS!!!!


Just kidding, I have no idea what it is, either. Just very interesting is all.

This thing moved behind the trees so I couldn't take pics of it anymore and I was headed out anyway so I jumped in the vehicle and tried to drive down the road to get a better shot and stopped on the side of the road and took another shot.


If I am reading this correctly, this can't be Venus since as you put it "This thing moved behind the trees". As far as I understand, planets and stars don't play the 'hide and seek' game, so ruling out Venus, this remains an Unidentified Flying Object.

This is exactly what I saw at 2am this morning in the Western skies of Sydney, Australia. Two days ago there was another over the Eastern skies.

Boondock, I have no idea what that is, but I'm sure someone will come along with a story for you to believe.

yea, I was hoping Phage would come on here
and give me the whole nine yards of what
it is. Some stellar burst or some planet
or something. But I haven't seen him
yet.


You starting this crap about looking to Phage as some kind of authority? This has been criticized in other threads where the person wasn't capable of doing research which Phage is good at. But he wasn't there with you. All he can do is look at your photos and give his opinion which has as much value as everyone elses except the silly replies about lights on trees, chinese lanterns, Venus, weather balloon, etc.

Since you used a flash at first I thought it was just a lens flare resulting from something bright on the tree such as shiny bark. But when I saw the other photos I figured you caught a UFO because it remains Unidentified, even if it's plane or a balloon or something just as mundane.

hmm 45 minutes rules out the ISS, I saw that thing the other night and it was in view, passed and gone in 3 minutes. The close up pic sort of looks like a plane (glowing plane?), could be solar panels?
The timespan you are talking about make me think it's a satellite of some sort, Iridium?

Photo 2 edit looks like a bunch of balloons lit up from inside but that could just be the res on the camera.
Looking at Stellarium Venus would have been about that height in southeastern sky at that time,
Stellarium is giving me weirdness on timesm, it reckons the sun is up at 0:16

NOAA17 sat or RS-22?

I've never seen Venus look that odd in our southern skies
Could be just what it looks like, unidentified

Sorry I forgot 24th your time would be the 25th our time. So I was looking at the wrong day for your location,

genesis2 sat just before sunrise travelling west to east
co-57 above venus a bit later on

Seasat1 is travelling east to west

Hi boon, could you upload the originals? If the goal is to analyse what's on the photo, we'd get the best result with the original data. Resizing them not only means losing pixels, but also repeating the compression algorithm. There are some filters in GIMP I'd like to try on the first picture, as whatever is emitting light seems to be really close - it might be possible to get some details out of it. Unfortunately, with the resized image I mostly get compression artefacts.
Also, if you use the [ img ] tag, the picture will be embedded with scrollbars anyway - so in my opinion there's nothing wrong with posting original images directly in an OP, it might even be quite beneficial to the quality and quantity of analysis. I think.

Where's Phage when you need him? Does he thinks he gets a holiday because it's Thanksgiving? Sir, there are no breaks or holidays at ATS....sir.

I did NOT use a flash.
My camera only uses the
flash when you pull that lil
flash arm upwards. Mine was down.
I never pulled it up. The light u see
on the ground are coming from my
headlights on my vehicle. I was
standing right in front of them
in the middle.

well I just tried twice to add them to
my pictures here but I got a blank
screen that said done in the task bar
but no image showed as added. I must
be doing something wrong or either
the originals are too large. I don't know.
I think they're almost 2 MB each and res is
is something like 3,000 X 2,000 or some such.
Do you have an alternate place for me to
upload them to? Or what am I doing wrong?

My bet is on Genesis2 and some weird atmospheric plus sunlight, or it's unidentified

Hey boon,

Did the object seem like a metallic pyramid? or a diamond?
(I zoomed in on your photo)

well I did say it went behind the trees
but as u can see it was so dark in the
background, a cloud may have
come in front and blocked it from view
and I may have just thought it was
a tree. I'm not sure. All I know is,
one minute I could see it and the next
I couldn't, I assumed it was a tree if that clarifies anything.
There were scattered clouds in the area
at the time of the capture.

I don't know.
As you can see the object was either a long distance away
or it was small the way I saw it with my eyesight.
The only way I got to see it close-up was by zooming
in with the editor and that's when I saw the shape.
I couldn't distinguish a shape with the naked eye.
It just looked like a light that didn't belong there.
