Okay, just in the past 3 months, I've had 3 incidents of objects in the sky.
--I saw one with my wife some days back and we did take a video, but my chilly butt was shivering so my samsung3 was moving and it was hard to see the
object in the sky move erratically. You wouldn't be able to tell if the object was moving or the camera..
--About a month ago, I was looking at the sky with my night vision binoculars and I did see something not normal to me. It traveled at high-speed and
could not be seen with my eye, but through my night vision bins, yep there it was...
--Two months ago while on a plane ride home, I saw 3 orange balls/orbs flying with us on the left side. Next to me was a pilot who was jump seating,
he was sitting on my right and we both were in the emergency exit row (I had window seat), he was watching a movie on his ipad.. Me and this guy
sitting behind me said at the same time, "WTF is THAT?" I tapped the pilot on my right, he pulled the earplugs from his ears and I said, buddy,
please look at this, do you know what it is? He reached over me and looked outside, he said, F-CK, I have no idea. He looked at me and some other
passengers looked out the window.. The three balls traveled with us for about 2 minutes and disappeared.
We land and as we were exiting the plane, some passengers asked that flights Captain if he saw the three orange balls? He did not give an answer, he
said he was doing his job to make sure we all got back safely. I was one of the last persons to get off because I wanted to hear other passengers
comment as they exited and walked down the aisle of the plane to exit, and they did comment and as stated some asked the Captain. When I was on the
jet bridge, I looked back and I saw the pilot sitting next to me go into the cockpit with the Captain and they shut the door.
I am looking for a video camera that will allow me to do the following:
1. Night Vision
2. Excellent Zoom, the highest I can get.
3. Motion sensitive camera, meaning, the video camera's internals account for physical movement and this function will help provide a steady video.
(not sure if this is possible..)
3a. Tripod would be out of the question, as the things in the sky tend to move so you will have to move with it to capture the full scope/capabilities
of these objects.. right?
4. Small, maybe the size of a typical mans hand. I need it small vid-camera because this hardware will be with me at all times.
5. Something in the range of $300 and $600, is it possible? Either way, could you please still suggest a video camera even if it is over my
Ideas/suggestions?? Yeah I could search myself, but hey I consider you all my buddies and some of you may have done this research and purchased one
already... Plus, there are just so so many brands and models and I just get lost as video recording doesn't really interest me as a hobby...
This time with your suggested video camera, I will be ready and will post whatever I find.. This stuff is kind of fun actually, especially when
something in the sky just isn't right while viewed with the naked eye and as stated above, I've seen something goofy in the sky 3 times in 3
months... well, minus the one I couldn't see with my naked eye...
I am very familiar with ISS and sats and what they look like when they traverse over my cities sky's..
I am very familiar with Military and Civilian aircraft.
And these three incidents that I experienced were for sure none of the above and I strongly believe a good video will help me determine what these
strange objects could be or what they are not... I just want to be ready for my fourth...
