It's weird but I've been doing the "wishing I could see a UFO" meditation thing for a few days and I've had some luck. I read about that here somewhere and now think - maybe it works. Not really focused meditation, sitting under a tree stuff - but just going outside at night and asking the sky "I'll try not to be afraid if you show yourself, but please not as a small dot in the sky".

I saw a few strange dots, but nothing you could put your finger on. And I'm not too keen to photograph things anyway as I find photos very blurred, or bright-dotty - and I doubt I'm the guy who's gonna get the clear ship in the sky pic. So I'm just relaxed about it now. It'd be great to believe in something intelligent outside of "us" or a "Neutered God" or Dawkin's boring "Random universe"



I helped her inform MUFON. Below is the report she wrote - and finally a link to the images. I've set her camera to high rez and I'm now at her place (I teach web design at a Uni near her house, but I live 50kms North of here). I'm with her here at the family home in Attadale, Western Australia.

---------------------------- Mum's MUFON submission --------------------------------------

1. I was in my garden. The Kreepy Krawley (pool cleaning mechanism) got stuck and I had to move it.



2. I looked at the sky because it was very starry. But this one star looked a bit different. I didn't get any feeling [in answer to the MUFON report sheet]. It just looked different. Not moving.

3. I didn't know what it was. It just looked different. It was star-like but not actually a star. It hadn't moved an inch. Like a star. So I went to get my Canon Powershot A490 camera to photograph it. My Son likes this stuff. I've had the flu for a few days, so I was cold and I was in my dressing gown.



4. When I tried to get it in focus [autofocus] it jumped. Up, down, sideways. That annoyed me because I wanted a clear shot. It went zig-zaggy all over the place [I estimated about 5 degrees up down and side to side. The thing was spotted about 100ft in the sky at about 45 degrees North to where she was - just above the roof].

5. During the siting I was annoyed because it moved around so much. I took a few pics and then went inside because I was fed up. I had a cold and it was late.

6. I didn't lose sight of it. It was still there and I just gave up and went in because I was tired and feeling cold. I had a temperature, a strong flu and was feeling tired and dizzy well before this sighting.

I believe that these things exist, and thought the photo may interest some people.

The camera was just there on the counter top. I use it to take pics of my garden flowers and upload them to facebook.

My Son, who is really into this has since changed the image resolution on my camera to much higher. I'm not very camera savvy and he thinks they'll be back. So the camera is at the ready just in case. I'm a retired widow, turning 70 next year. Natural redhead still (my Son said to say this as he thinks they are interested in genetic variation).

Overall, I'm quite surprised and didn't have much hope getting an image on the cheapy camera.

---------------------------

You can see the photos here: Alien Moon Base

Yes. this is my site, but I've never ever seen anything besides maybe a blinking light in the sky, or a satellite which wavers a bit in the sky (always an hour or so after sunset when satellites are lit up). So this is great for me - to know that all you have to do is wish to see one as I have been doing - and Mum a little bit, but much less interested.

So, the pics on your site, are they the ones taken by you or you mother? It doesn't seem clear from the page linked to.

if you tryed to zoom in on a star with your camera.the star would zigzag all over the place,because you are holding the camera,with shaky hands.??

Yes. Mum took those last night.

The ones uploaded are totally unaltered images. I did rotate one in Windows pic viewer. Unfortunately her camera was set at 480 x 640px - Canon A490. Looking forward to hearing responses. Even scientific explanations are welcome as I often get excited seeing posts here and then deflated when they turn out to be explained away.

These days "I can handle the truth" (and don't need the high followed by the "it was a toy helicopter" low).

Yeah I thought that, too. The roof is pretty clear in the shots, though. The first shot is blurred with the roof.

This will be interesting (posting an actual sighting) to see as I've responded skeptically to others. Maybe this is payback for me. Mum on the other hand doesn't seem to care one way or the other. She's still getting over her cold.

Yes. Well I was the one "wishing" for it. I got a blinking star at asimuth (blinking every 30 seconds just once so it was hard to see - could have been anything) and Mum got the pics 50kms South of where I saw my blinking star. She just - "went inside" after taking 3 photos "because it was cold" - I mean REALLY !? Not interesting enough for you, Mum? Another possible intelligent being trying to avoid being photographed - not interesting?

What direction were these pics taken? Im not far from your location so I can look it up the location in the sky on my tablet...

Need to rule out the usual suspects (Venus, Mars, et al.)

I think she was looking at Uranus - a marvellous sight in the night sky.

I know. Gotta get rid of the obvious. The light trails during the 1/50 sec. shot are what spun me out. She lives here in Attadale and was looking North to Perth. It was about 45 degrees up in the sky. Maybe there was a fireworks show - or a plane dropped something. A fast, erratic something as the roof tiles are in focus.

The pics reminded me of the Hessdalen lights.

Jupiter IMHO. I can upload a screen shot given time...

Yeah I need to clean up my digital footprint too

Good for you and your Mom, I hope you have many exciting conversations after this spectacular experience. Get out back with her in warmer weather, follow your instincts and take your connection to this mystery and go for hikes together. I have the best memories of my Mom and I doing the very same. Although she is gone now, I could write a book about all of our experiences together. I really think that some of us have had our DNA changed long ago and will always be part of some ET experiment. You both sound like great people.

Jupiter!?


I'm pretty sure it was swamp gas. If you zoom right in, you can see the clear chevron outline of a gas cloud with a US marine sitting inside it.

Yep, can be seen to the north (in the Southern Hemi) with the naked eye. About 32deg above the horizon.


edit on 26-11-2013 by cartenz because: Pics or didnt happen



ETA: I read online that its best visible after midnight, so I will go outside tonight with the EOS and see if I can see it, I doubt it with all the light pollution here in Freo, but still worth a look.

I can't seem to find this "report" that was submitted to MUFON. Cool, you have a website. Don't play the members here to get traffic, they will call you out on it fast.

I would find it hard to believe that some alien was just trying to avoid that one camera on this planet. Any reason you feel they would just be looking for that one camera your mother was holding?

In 1/50th of a second it leaves a light trail that suggests it must be travelling fast.

It was at about this time last night (it's 9 now) right in the position of Aldebaran (in Taurus). A thumb's distance to the right of Pleiades (where the "beings of love" live) and Orion (home of the greys) is another thumb to the right. I checked star positions on the iPad.

This anomaly was stationery until Mum put the camera to her eyes and then it started wiggling. It got on her nerves and she gave up trying to get a shot - thinking she'd missed it. She only saw it during the brighter parts of the image. She said it was in one place one second, another the next - jumping around all the time.

I've managed to upload the photos here (see first post). Maybe others recognise it as some kind of light anomaly above Perth. seems it was more like 10pm.

I'm going out now to see what's up in that position now.

Go outside tonight and try to zoom in and take a photo of a star. Bonus points if you can keep the camera still while taking the photo. No using a tripod though, you must be holding it. I bet the pictures would come out very similar.

I don't care about traffic on that site as it's just to show clients my web design work, really. That' why I uploaded the pics here.

What I find interesting is that I feel the need to defend the experience - as if it was my own. But I honestly don't care. I just want to know what it is. Planet, RC, flare, ball lightning. The motion "seems" intelligent (looks like it's making three circles in one pic) and I did tell Mum I wished to see a UFO only 2 days ago. weird that she saw it, but then Betty and Barney Hill meditated weeks after their "experience" - telling the UFO to meet her at such and such address on such and such a night. Weirdly, the aliens got the street wrong and apparently there were reports of a ship hovering over another house 2-3 blocks away.


Good point about the camera. Why that one? And why didn't they go far away? IF there was a "they". I've seen light trails like this. There's a woman who took images of light trails all the time. She said they would come out to play with her. She was about Mum's age too. 69.

Good point, but we've thought about that. It would be hard to film a star moving and keep a roof perfectly in focus. She had her flash on and you can see from the roof that there's no camera movement.

Any hoo. I'm going out to see if I can see anything. it's the same place, the next night. Same time. Whhhoooooo. I'm a bit scared
