I figured this was the best place to get some opinions on some pics I took around a year ago. They're nothing earth shattering but they're the closest I've ever come to a UFO.

Allow me to set the scene...

My wife and I used to live in a ground floor flat in northwest England and our back window faced onto a massive field full of trees and the odd fishing pond, as in - pretty deserted. One night we happened to be looking out of that window and some sort of bright light came into view from the distance. It looked like a star but we couldn't normally see stars since the window was already about 12 feet from where we sat so it really was unusual to see something so bright from so far away. We quickly dismissed the idea of a plane since the object seemed to be stationary. We eventually went to the window for a closer inspection to discover that it was moving quite erratically, juddering from place to place but not too far from its original position. Over the course of an hour its movement did increase and eventually came closer over the field. What originally looked like a star had elongated to look almost like a diamond. Then suddenly it had gone.

This same bright light appeared at various times over the next few months, in different areas of the sky but still viewable from that back window, displaying the same erratic movements and unusual shapes on closer inspection. We decided we should try and get some pictures to try and make some sort of identification but every one taken from behind the window turned out very blurry, so we went into the field one night around 2am to try and get a better shot.

These pictures were taken that night on a DSLR camera mounted on a tripod. It was set on a long exposure to try and track the movement. As it is a high quality camera that produces huge images I have zoomed in on the object and cropped it to make the images a reasonable size.

So this is how it always started. Looks like a star right?


What about now?






At one point it looked like it was dropping out of the sky. The camera got that too




So that's it. Sorry for rambling on for so long but I hope some of you guys find them interesting and have some opinions you'd like to share. Easily debunkable or unexplainable?

Sho.

Great photos. A video would have been better to show the motion of what was happening, but very interesting none the less.

Well I'd have to say my main problem with the "photos" is that the background is literally perfect, it's blemish free, nothing but black....This doesn't happen.

Also, these aren't cellphone pics, why the tiny res..

As I said they were taken at around 2am in the dead of night. In the original pictures the object appears as a tiny dot and doesn't look like anything. It's only when I've majorly zoomed in on the object that you can make out any sort of detail. We did mistake it as a star as it was VERY far in the distance.

I know my word probably doesn't count for much but there is absolutely no editing on the pictures, I have only zoomed in on the object.

hi i had the same experiance a few nights ago they just look like stars but also seem to sort of keep stretching out into some sort of line.

i do have 2 videos but they only look like stars but they are moving the videos were with my blackberry so quality is bad..

one of these "stars" also had a red light on top of it and went from one side of the sky to the other but at one point it looked as if it exploded into a really bright light then started going in the opposite direction

Very cool photos.

Is it possible for you to upload the originals somewhere so those that want can download them and zoom in themselves?

That seems to help avoid the, "why such low res" responses. I too think that when people post such small pictures.

Very interesting indeed. How long of an exposure were these taken at? That will give some sort of an indication on how fast the object was moving. Can you give any estimate of the distance of the object?

Get a telescope


Thanks for sharing, but as you may have expected, not much in the way of opinion other than general criticism.

Keep taking the photos though and post anything interesting.

Cheers.

long exposure pictures often used to present fake ufo pictures....
I see you want to join the club, just so you know.. it will get you banned to lie on purpose on ATS

I've seen perfectly black skies before many a time and who says he's creating a long exposure fake/

Lets be a little more open minded and not go accusing people before we have more to judge as possible evidence guys.

OP, nice pics there, shame it isn't much but keep an eye out in case you can get some more shots and potential video.

I AM open minded....and the OP is just presenting long exposure pictures, the formations are easy to make by moving the camera slightly while taken the pictues... go try it yourself tonight if you dont belive me.

I belive there are pictures out there of REAL unknown crafs, and I hate to see fake pictures like this waste people´s time....

Making assumptions of any sort is not open minded.

Much like the assumption that it's anything but an ordinary star with a long exposure or even something plain ol' earthly that's being misidentified due to distance and the inabilities of cameras capturing the true details?

There are many kinds of close-minded.

Do you have any proof of your allegations towards the OP? I don´t say there is no lgoical explanation for his sighting but calling him a hoaxer without any proof? Just wow. He doesn´t claimed anything. He just asks for help in a open minded forum to explain the images he took.Why you´re so hostile?

Regarding the images. I have no fraking clue. Could be a critter?

But S&F for the images. They look pretty cool.

I'm not assuming anything, this is a discussion forum so topics should be discussed not dismissed out of hand and accusations of hoax thrown about carelessly.

Very interesting, The objects do look like it could be created from moving the camera to produce light trails, and as a possibility it's not hard to add a rainbow overlay to a while trail in a photo editing program. Not to discredit your photos by any means though.

The only thing I could think of is that the said craft would be interfering with the magnetosphere with the way the colors seem to be interacting. Very interesting indeed. Thank you for sharing these.

Thanks for sharing. It was your description that did it for me. Whatever they are, they are amazing, operate intelligently, and are being seen by more and more folk.

I don't think "craft" is the right description of what they are but that remains to be seen.

Hi guys, thanks for the support and kind words. I'll try to respond to all the questions/accusations

Vandalour - Wow. That was a bit uncalled for! I can honestly say that the camera wasn't moved during the taking of the pictures. My wife is a keen amature photographer and regularly takes pictures of star trails/light trails and even then the camera isn't moved as that wouldn't work. That's the point of a long exposure, the object moves, the camera doesn't. That's what creates the trail effect. In all those pictures you've posted the camera is stationary while the object isn't so I'm not exactly sure how they prove your point


Kali74 - I'm afraid I wouldn't know if it still shows up as we have since relocated to Devon and we haven't had any sightings of that sort since we moved.

tsawyer2 - I have no idea of the distance I'm afraid. A mile? I really don't know and guessing probably wouldn't give an accurate indication. My wife has just checked the exif data on the photos, the first star like image was shot with a 2 second exposure, the one dropping from the sky was a 5 second and the rest were 10 seconds. I'll have a look for the originals and post them if I can find them but you will have to zoom in a helluva lot to see the object in any sort of detail.

I'm a little shocked by Vandalours post. I'm just posting my pictures man. I'm not claiming they're crafts or anything I'm just looking for opinions, that's all. Again guys, thanks for the support.
