Try telling me how far away the bird is from the camera. Then you can work on calculating the size.
I see they called in the Marines. The others were just not up to the task


It's not the size they attempt to portray in the pic you posted, that's for sure. Look at the overlay. There is certain a way to do it is the distance to the ships can bet determined.

I'm not claiming it's ET, but it ain't no cloud or bird.


Case solved ... here it is
lol
Ah yes. The famous giant flying squirrel that needs no trees to jump from. Why didn't I think of that?


Maybe he jumped from the top of the turbine motor housing, out the back and got a boost from the wind to gain altitude while riding the thermals?

Is this explanation less plausible than some alien craft from a far off star system? After all, each of the elements in the above speculation actually are proven to exist in the world. It's the combination of the events that makes it less probable and questionable.

Who claimed it was alien? You see that in any of my posts?

Maybe it's Richard Branson playing with a new toy. Better explanation than a bird. The photo in that area is enlarged. The wind turbine and the object are magnified at that same rate. The turbine is is probably close to 275' from the ground to the tip of the prop at the top. That gives a good idea os scale.

Also, it seems to large to be a bird.


How so Klassified?


That is what the article says however it sure looks like many photos of birds in flight that have been unidentified initially and found to be a bird in flight.

I think cloud could be ruled out by simply viewing the pic with out the zooms,

With the zooms it make me think bird for sure just out of focus due to movement and distance.

Seen to many nearly identical pics that turn out to be birds flying past just at the right time to be captured in the pic.

No. But some of us take a LOT of photos and have seen this effect many, many times.

It's a bird.

In the same way the bright, shiny UFO in the sky to the SW this evening is Venus.

Dull, but boring, but true.

Just going by my subjective look at the larger picture, not the zoom in. It looks bigger than a bird to my eyes. Which leads me to think it's a small plane, glider, large kite, etc.

Hmmm...looks odd, but could it be one of these maybe?



Not saying it absolutely is a newer design airship, but it could be.

I'd consider a bird or insect as a possible explanation, if it wasn't for the fact the reporter (Journal photographer) reported seeing the object "Hovering stationary above the wind turbines".

That doesn't sound like a bird or insect, but it doesn't rule out some other unusual but conventional aircraft, like an airship.

Or of course, it may indeed be what some of think it could be...an ETI craft having a laught at our crappy designs for wind turbines.

You do have to laugh at some of the responses. Cloud? Bird? Giant pterodactyl maybe, but no bird. How many times have we seen someone post, "If it were from a reputable source, yadayadayada"? Now we have a professional photographer who has a career to risk if he's found trying to perpetrate a hoax, and it's not good enough. I'm not claiming it's ET, but it ain't no cloud or bird.


Thank you, you quickly learn who the disinfo guys are and just skip over their posts lol. It is sad lol,

YOU HAVE NO IDEA OF THE SIZE OR DISTANCE of the object so you cant tell anything from that picture compared to OTHER objects in the picture DOH!!!!

That object has been shown by others COULD easily be a bird we also have no exif data from the picture or a link to a full size unedited version!!!

That's my £0.02 worth after 30+ years taking pictures

You're 2 pounds might be worth more than 2 cents but not in my book.

I like the way people try to tell me about perspective. I'm an architect. I know about perspective and scale. Have a good day chap.

Except that somehow the photographer didn't happen to see the UFO when he took the picture.
Maybe because it was a bird and he just didn't notice it.


A blurd. We've seen many.
That's not a bird either, but nice try. Try calculating the size of the bird in your pic and let us know which species it is?


It is more than likely a birdy. Perhaps a good idea is to use the ATS search, and use a few keywords like, Thames+UFO, that's not a UFO+bird, or Phage+blurd. All technically incorrect, but all serve a purpose. There is a possibility that Google, NSA and Co, May block some key keywords now, [probably a subject for a new thread] but give it a try anyway.

Phage's example is more than likely a bird too, To add is also the UK, and is Cornwall, next door to Devon in 2008.

Agreed. Looks to me like a bird caught at a distance. Also just my opinion as a photographer for 30+ years as well.

Bird is possibly a Great Skua (known to fly around the Devon area:
Great Skua image

Also, he is a freelance photographer for the paper. He doesn't work for them. Who knows if he was doing this to get interest in him or his website.

The aerial object appears of a darker density and
therefore not of a great scale of distance.

I`m convinced it is a large bird in flight with the wings
caught at an angle to appear as a UFO type structure
interpretation caught here on camera.

I recall being decieved by some Santiago UFO footage,
that turned out to be traffic at night in the mountains.

The old cases are humbling and also wonderfully
mysterious value without the occams razor factor.

Better read it again.
The photographer did not see it until he was viewing the picture.

Perhaps it's good idea to respect the fact that other people have intellect and can judge for themselves what it is and is not.

Phage's example is foolhardy at best, but more likely a direct insult to everyone else's intelligence. To think he would use such an example diminishes my belief that he is as smart as I may have believed unless of course he actually has no respect for other's cognitive abilities.

If a birds wings are so difficult to capture, then how was the pic taken in his example? Why is the bird in his pic way out of scale with what it's trying to depict? The reason a birds wings would not be captured is because of speed vs distance from the camera. The object in the OP is obvious to all but those who come off as having some type of an agenda, well into the distance - in my estimation, more than a mile away.

I had enough of this nonsense, but that's the point isn't it?

Sometimes I wonder who exactly it is they are trying to convince of anything. We all have our own eyes and can make our own judgements. If there are sock puppets posting here do they think they really do any good for their cause (what ever that may be) or is it just to cause people to throw up their hands and leave a topic? They certainly don't change the minds of rational, thinking people who can walk and chew gum at the same time. IMO

I really don't get this idea that if you or I see the picture in the OP differently then one of us has an "agenda".

Why is this attitude so prevalent on ATS?

I know you weren't addressing me specifically, but I just see a bird in this picture, maybe its not, but that's what I see. Does that mean I have an agenda?

Do you mean the object is in the background way beyond the wind farm? It could be, it could be not. Not much way of telling really in a 2d and singular picture, and not much of a story, which ironically has a certain honesty about it. Then again have a look at an older thread that Phage opined on and btw, I found it by doing just the advice that I mentioned to you in my last post, this one did have a story to it.
