It seems our friend likes to contradict himself.

From this:



I might be able to slightly agree with your superimposed theory if I was using a filter; however, I was not. Follow up pictures show no such reflections.




To this:



What if I was lying though? Well, lucky enough, there is a follow up picture taken at a different angle and the lights remain in the same point in the sky. If it were truly a reflection it would change as the camera’s angle or elevation changed.


He can't make up his mind . Either the lights were in the later shots , or they weren't

So, next step is to do the same process for the height of both photos:





And, in the assumption that the ratio is of 3:2, extend both sizes to 768 in height:





The final step is to overlay both and see if it match:



Conclusion: 100% match meaning that:

1- Both photos have been resized and cropped
2- It is possible that the 'UFOs' are only hot pixels
3- While the Nikon D700 specifications says that it take shots with a 3:2 ratio, there are thousands results doing a Google search showing 1024x768 (1:3 ratio) examples; looking for higher resolution will show lots of results as well.
4- Without the original photos, we can only made assumptions about what have been done on these: it could either the original 3:2 ratio that have been resized to 1:3; or another camera was used...

On a side note, we can't completely rule out the possibility of a lens flare effect.

Indeed, if, like I think, both photos have been resized and cropped, it's possible that the cropped part showed some bright lights in the foreground that could have created a lens flare effect, those bright lights beeing invisible because they are out of frame:



Like also in this example:



So, either hot pixels or lens flare, added to a non-original photo can give the false impression that what we see is unexplained.

It's an airpland when you take lightning pictures you leave the shutter open and wait. might take hundreds of pictures to get a good one. look at the .lights . Long exposure time.

After going back I see somebody already explained it

I remember Aramap did a debunking of sorts on a photo like this one a few years ago. It was a long exposure and an airplane flying left to right in the frame. The lights only flash on every few seconds, so it appears to be a massive object, but is only a set of light in reality. You have to use a long exposure to capture lightning like this, or you have to be the fastest shudder/trigger in the west and have amazing camera gear to be set to capture light in a dark environment.

I don't claim to be able to provide the proof needed to debunk this, but I know a guy who does.

Aramap to the rescue!

Thanks for the .gif image. It was awesome to see some action (finally) on ATS.


However, something in this picture caught my eye, so I "print screen" and enlarged for better viewing:



If you noticed that the lightning strike appears to have a break in it leaving the white object in question free and clear from the lightning bolt. I am surprised no one noticed this before.

Hypothetically speaking, is it possible for lightning to do this? To separate and then rejoin itself on "the other side" of an object? This would defy physics wouldn't it?

Also, if these objects were in fact points of light or some reflection from inside the camera, how would it be possible that the lights wouldn't simply blend into and become a part of the lightning bolt itself?

Either these objects are in front of the lightning and have an external plasma shield protecting them from the lightning (as seen in my picture), or they are simply in FRONT of the lightning, and hence the bolt appears to be behind them and you can see their invisible plasma protective shield (like star trek).

Phage:

I would also like a response from you on this. You know quite a bit on this subject

They are like the picture I posted recently, I took them at sunset. The balls were not visible to the naked eye.

I wonder if it's some kind of predator-like cloaking, masking a gigantic ship by blending it in with the background, minus the lights on the bottom of course.

Probably not, but an interesting thought.

Let me think about this a 10 second exposure and an aircraft with a flashing light.......hmmmm tricky one!

Good find. Them be powering up in the storm. Thats what they do. Them be UFO's, and probably not ours, the ET ones use storms to power up alot. Colorado has dark bases so it doesnt mean theyre positives at all, and that its not co-op black op either.

Of course they monitor too. And there are other bases so not all in the Colorado areas are negative.

Earth school is very much like this:



Structure of the duality, and we have to make choices, Love or its opposite.

YOU WANT Crazy i'LL give YOU crazy!!!!

wHAT if......the gunman who killed all those people in the batman movie ... ALSO IN COLORADO ... is an mkUltra agent subliminally ordered to 'go....killl.....must.....killlll' to distract public attention from this big row of UFOs...hm???


My (cRAZY) 2 cents


note: no disrespect to the victims of the shootings intended

Looks like the Lightning effected their electromagnetic cloak waves???? Need better photo to get better description if only lens artifact.

I know I'll be laughed at but I am thinking maybe they are on a range of mountians and that these may simply be lights on buildings on hill sides...at least the location needs to be verified and maps checked. Just because the cloud cover is there we can't assume that we are looking into the sky on this one. These may be a low cloud cover not out of the ordinary in a lightning storm.

Those piks are b.e.a.utiful


Tis the aliens feeding from our electrical storms

there was a recent thread about a russian cosmonaut and intelligence officer that was disclosing russian ufo secrets and what he'd seen.

one fact that stood out was that he witnessed ufos converge on lightning storms, from orbit, appearing to use the massive amounts of electricity as a power source.

these pictures seem to confirm that theory.

The person who took the photos also posted a photo of the same spot during the day..

An airplane??


According to NORAD and the Air Force Operations Center, all flights, including military, were grounded at the time.

Right. He called NORAD.
Why doesn't he just provide the RAW images?
