As a very experienced photographer, these were clearly caused by a long shutter speed, high iso (creates alot of grain) and low aperture (lens wide opened), i can create these any night. Thanks for asking though.

It really depends on how dark it really is, this link should help... its alot of reading, but learning to use the camera correctly can take time and many many rolls of film... hopefully your using digital

i took the picture and checked them out i was all kindsa baffled why are they all squiggly?

Hey matrix, I remember a similar phenomenon known as the Stevensville Lights in Texas, and I thought it was pretty cool, and who knows right? Later that year I was shooting pics at night out on my deck, without a tripod. When I uploaded the pics, I noticed the same rainbow snakes in some of the pics. So, what I did, and would encourage you to try, is went outside and found the brightest objects and began taking pictures, steady and some with intentional subtle motion/shaking. Use the same setting as original shots. It does not take much movement to make it happen. See if you get the same effect. Hope that helps...

For a better shot, max out your shudder speed at 1000 and maybe set your camera on night mode. Oh yea, consider getting a tri-pod too.


peace,
spec

EDIT: Or long exposure time, or something...I have no idea, but I know I'm right.


yep, u nailed it.
long exposure time and shutter speed
creates these pretty pics.

I made the same mistake when
I first got my camera and used
the wrong setting for night shots.

automatic settings in most digital cameras wont always work correctly... do you have a tripod? if not, that is step 1... never shoot at night without one!

I hope that shot wasn't at me, I'm just trying to help!

Anyway, without a tripod, anything you shoot will look like this, the slightest tremble in your hand will make dots appear as shoelaces in the air.

either set the camera down and use a time tigger or get a tripod. That will solve your problems.

Id really like to see these lights, minus the squiggles hehe

no it was not directed at you lol, and thanks for the help, i did shoot a video of the lights and am going to post it in a sec hold on.

I looked at Pic #1, then went to the last one.

#1? Out of focus, orangish star or planet?

Last one? Too long exposure, camera shake and the point of light (whitish star/planet) draws the "lines".

Someone with the expertise to pull up your EXIF info should be along shortly....assuming it can be captured from the photobucket site? I have no idea....but, I know those kinds of pics, when I see them, because I have taken many like that...unintentionally, usually, because of accidental shutter release, or wrong settings.

Your camera is fixed on a light....and the result is shaky movement....long exposure...shutter speed...or all of the above.

It is common for people to make "art" using these techniques.

Sorry to say but this is very common and really nothing extra ordinary....

If you actually saw these rope like forms in the sky the explanation would be a tether that broke or was released in orbit. If you saw points of light and the pictures showed squiggly lines rather than dots, it's obviously shutter speed.

These look strikingly similar to a star photographed without flash. The camera compensates by having a slightly longer exposure, and this is the result usually. I'd imagine that it they were taken from a tripod, without a timer delay, and with an exposure time that's a tad longer than daylight exposure.

if you notice how the lines seem to want to converge around a central point, that indicates the camera is mounted and the mount is flexing in an attempt to stabilize after feeling pressure from the finger used to trigger the camera.

I'd imagine this is how it played out, you saw a star, wanted to get a picture of it, and set your camera up. You then zoomed in, snapped the picture, and saw the resulting image.
Just my thoughts on the matter.

to all of you insinuating that matrix is having you on/faking this,
I have one question: have you had all of your shots?


----------------- "I noticed that school children in mission schools who had been vaccinated for smallpox or measles could not see spiritual entities at all. A flying saucer would fly through the sky at great speed and be seen by many men and women but the children who had been vaccinated would see nothing and I noticed this hundreds of times." ---- CREDO MUTWA ---- --------------------- "We were told that there was a great smallpox epidemic coming to the land and all the children must be vaccinated. My grandfather used to say that the white man's vaccination makes you blind and if you are to look after the cattle you must not go to the trading store to get your vaccination. "Inspectors used to come and check each child for signs of vaccination. Our grandmother used to give us great pain in order to save our spiritual eyes. Grains of maize would be heated up and pushed against the skin of the child, and so when the schools inspectors came he saw the blisters and assumed the child had been vaccinated…and I noticed that school children in mission schools who had been vaccinated for smallpox or measles could not see spiritual entities at all. -------ZULU CREDO MUTWA ------------------------------------------------------------------------


if so, you will never see one


here are videos of similar sightings the "camera tricks" excuse doesn't fly in these cases
