Hello, I've been looking at ATS for a couple of years know. I've always had the idea of signing up, but something was always first, and I never got to it. I usually take a look a couple of times a week to see what's going on in the world and keep up to date.

I think I never got to signing up because I didn't think I had anything worthy enough to share.

On April 2011, I took some pictures with my new iphone 4 at that time of an outing with my girlfriend and her family, and looking back at the pictures I saw a anomally on a couple of pictures I took of a dead tree. Basically a light in the sky which I didn't notice when I took the pictures. I thought to share right away, so I signed up, but then found out I couldn't make my own thread until I had replied in at least 20 threads before, so my idea died right there.

I still have the pictures and hope to share soon, but I just haven't gotten to replying in any forums, since I hope to reply when I can actually add something meaningfull to the threads.

Today I wrote my first reply, and I am introducing myself. I hope this gets me started.

Anyway, the pictures aren't that great, it's a 3 picture sucession with a small light in the sky which advances from picture to picture, no smoking gun of any kind, so no getting any hopes up.

Well, that's all for know, hope to be a good member and add to the discussions going on. I love the Forum and have the highest respect for everyone on ATS. Great to become a member!

Until next time!

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or expect. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

*** Please have fun! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!
