It can't be the ISS as it was done with a 1s exposure and should appears like a short streak.


Plus the ISS has no canape, so , no ISS.

Awesome! Cheers for doing that.

There is a little movement, but that's normal. Even though he had dropped the brightness/contrast to make it look cleaner, there is still evidence of the other less bright stars, which also follow the same pattern, in perfect alignment with how they rotate.

Anyway's, for something that looked awesome at first, now I'm rather grumpy at this guy for having us on! He actually helped in this case with-holding the original, because the frame before became the slam dunk to his mischief!

I'm sorry, but are you serious? If this is a "jolt" during exposure of polaris, the light should be consistent - its not| There are clearly different amounts of light being reflected into the lens of the object, its not all "star light"| I don't accept your explanation

If there's been movement in the exposure, this guy has edited the photo (after the jolt) to have it seem lie a ufo, imo

Then how can you explain the repetition pattern of both the stars 'streaks-like' and "UFOs" between the two shoots that are 'conveniently' at the exact same position?

Don't know if anyone beat me to this, as I only read 2 pages before posting but It does look a lot like this pic of the ISS....

They look nothing alike. Go back a couple of pages and you'll learn it's not the ISS

Now you are being silly.
It is obviously a partially eaten decomposed whale

I think you answered your own question. It looks REMARKABLY like the ISS.

This link will give you real time of the ISS orbit.

www.isstracker.com...

It seems to pass right where your friend took the pic!

Thank you!

Yes, I also did a search with Heavens-Above and seems like a match:



Waiting for my friend to confirm 2:36AM correct for its sighting.


Since spacecraft tracking goes by GMT, I think 02:30:00 on a satellite tracking schedule would correlate to 3:30AM In a French Timezone.

What's all this talk about ISS? It could just as easily be a LEO satellite (Low-Earth-Orbiter), or from the looks of it, even a jet of some sort.

I say this, and I am a Ground Network Operator (Satellite Controller) for a subsidiary of the Swedish Space Corporation.

Then again, could be a UFO.

Wow thats pretty cool, i never knew you could see the ISS from the ground.

Am i the only one who thought it looked sorta like a fighter jet?

Okay, the guy send me more additional infos:

- GPS position: latitude 43°23'30"N longitude 4°48'32"E
- He was facing exactly NNE
- Telescope was slightly at the left of the Polaris star
- Hour of the shoot is exactly 1h14AM.

If this is exact, then it can't be the ISS.

The guy still refuse to give me the original, but stated that he sent it to the GEIPAN....



He sent it to a French agency that he could trust. We may send it to MUFON or at the worst, NASA.
Groupe d'Étude des Phénomènes Aérospatiaux Non-identifiés (GEPAN) is what told the world about the famous Trans-en-Provence Case. So there is some hope that they will disclose what they find.


Zorgon is correct (although being sarcastic, which is very funny, pokes fun at the notion that it's the ISS), it looks nothing like the ISS. I find it interesting that it has two vertical fins as well.
Although the position of the tail fins are different, it reminds me of these photos.

I would have to say that in order to find any relevant correlation between the bright object in the picture and the ambiguous reddish ones would be a hyperbole. An extreme exaggeration. They are clearly not of the same origin. I'm not saying this is a UFO or anything like that - It's most likely a satellite.

But to say that those ambiguous red reflective patterns are equivilant to the brightly luminescent object?

Come on. Straighten your thoughts out.

Actually, on further looking at it, its pattern is reflected many times over, best one is way off to the right, certainly looks like internal reflections on the internal glass lenses of his lens.




I'm just going to say it because no one else has.
Maybe the fleet is decloaking.
And they do look man made.
Maybe the French have their own Space Fleet.

It looks like an advanced type of spy satellite.

That doesn't look like any close up of the ISS I've ever seen. Perhaps what you got there is the replacement for the Space shuttle, sure looks like a sci-fi space fighter plane to me.

I took the original picture and adjusted the brightness a bit. The 'object' seems to be repeated faintly in the image...



Im not sure what would cause these artifacts, i just found it interesting.

inc spaceships one forgot to cloak before the french man snapped a picture.

When I first looked at those pictures the one thing that came to mind was "F-18", but then someone mentioned the ISS. I'm not an expert on the ISS but the silohoute didn't seem right but then again, you guys are the experts in this.



EXPERTS??? i don' think so. A lot of people on here pawn themselves off as experts but are nothing more than google freaks.....no real knowledge. I have not come across any experts on here......and I have been looking.

If you've ever seen the ISS pass overhead, you know it hauls azz. It looks like the ISS to me, but it could be a satellite also. It ain't an alien spacecraft, though.

OMG, it's a f18 or something. WAIT, it's a UFO. You know that this would be classified as a ufo, because nobody has an idea of what plane it is, so thus, Unidentified flying object.
