Well, we've got scoffer-pranksters who launch Chinese lanterns, homemade kites with LEDs, balloons with lights, etc. Then we have people who buy
camcorders and hope to capture real UFOs but soon run out of patience and tie balloons together, dangle models, toss hubcaps, do some CGi or
photography tricks like blurds (blurred side-view shots of seagulls to create a UFO look) or airplanes shot at low shutter speed to come out looking
like UFOs, or whatever. And some just notice something in the sky that looks strange, capture it on video, and post it on YouTube (perhaps knowing
what it really is, perhaps not). And anything real gets lost in the smokescreen.
I suggested in my thread Getting the evidence
a team effort that would offer a good
chance of capturing undeniable video evidence shot from three angles with tracking data stamped on every frame, enabling triangulation, without the
high cost of theodolites. But even having a single camcorder aimed with a motorized pan/tilt mount controlled by software on a connected computer
would allow the software to print azimuth and elevation data on a caption bar added to every frame. That would be better than what we're getting so
far, but of course triangulation made possible by having cameras in backyards of three people located a few miles apart with their motorized pan/tilt
mounts controlled by a single person through Internet connected would really nail it and burst this nonsense bubble. But no!!! That would spoil the
About adding a forum just for UFO videos, maybe that would dejunk the Aliens and UFOs forum a bit. That sounds good to me, but there seem to be good
arguments against it. Some threads that start with junk video end up with some very interesting information in some of the posts.
