This is the only DV-related board where I've seen any posting about this UFO event. You'd think somebody someplace would have complained that the photos weren't shot at 24p.

I prefer watching UFO footage on the TV, so that would be with 29.97 X 2 fields per second. 24P is too choppy for viewing UFO's on TV because you lose fields, unless you see field footage of crop circles---but that might make me dizzy---all those circles, round and round.

Actually, I only saw the still photo on the web. Did the pilots shoot video?

It was cockpit video. They had more about it CNN today. One expert claimed is was ball lightning while another expert claimed it was shooting rocks. These experts sound pretty dumb to me.

They always have a "logical" explanation...which usually defies logic. I like a scientific explanation of something and am usually fairly quick to debunk things that truly are utter nonsense; but very often the debunking explanations of UFOs seem to be about as silly as some of the UFO types themselves, and usually they're only WAGs (Wild Ass Guesses). I'd guess that the usual explanation (weather, weather balloons, etc.) will be what's put out for this incident. Could be, but it would be nice to have additional video of these strange "weather" phenomena. I mean, it it's weather, it ought to happen more than once, you'd think.

The footage was shot during a sunny clear day.

Weather balloons was also mentioned and laughed at. :-))

Hey guys, check this . . .

About 10 years or so ago i was working out at home and on came a breaking news story that "an alien spaceship has landed in russia". So I"m thinking it's a fake broadcast as a joke, right. But then, I change the channel and every freaking channel had it NBC, CBS, ABC, and it was all about this spaceship in russia. Well about 1 or 2 hours go by and suddenly one of the networks says "no it's false", then they all said its false, and then . . . I never heard A WORD ABOUT IT AGAIN.

Now this would make total sense, especially if the networks were embarrassed about making such a big mistake and figured they better never make matters worse by bringing it back up. But I always thought it a little strange that my mother remembers it, and I do too. And no one else I no ever saw it. That's how fast it went off the air. That's how little it was talked about later. And I can find no record of it ANYWHERE. Not on the net or anything.

Hey, I'm not saying there's aliens, becasue I don't believe that, but sometimes I wonder if there was something legit like a new form of government craft or something being tested that they didn't want us to know about, and so the government SHUT UP THE NETWORKS FAST before things got out of hand.

Does anybody else remember this? It was in the middle of the day maybe around 2:00 p.m. or so about 10 years ago on all the major U.S. TV networks. Maybe someone can search for it better than me and get some info.

Anyway, I . . . . wait, what is that! AHHHHHHHHHH

A few years ago I was on a beach in cornwall (south west tip of England) looking up at the stars.

Its a rare sight seeing stars against a black sky when you live in a city so I always make the effort when away from light pollution.

Anyway, I was looking up and watching the various satellites panning across the sky. In fact it looked quite congested up there, perhaps 3 or four every few minutes. I said at the time to my girlfriend I bet most of those are US spy ones so give a smile.

After twenty minutes we suddenly spotted two lights at a percieved range to the satellites, but rather than following the same path they very quickly zipped across the sky and stopped. Another then joined and they both began to interact / chase for about five minutes, weaving in and out of the satellites.

The girlfriend couldn't quite see them at first but then she did.
She wondered what it was as did I, but I bascially said that whaterver it was, it wasn't something man put there. The speed was too fast for it to be anything produced or piloted by us. Also the fact there were two interacting rules out a remote control craft + we'd never risk something experimental hitting each other or a satellite (if they were close)

At this point the girlfriend got quite scared and we return from the beach.

I've always been seen as the world's biggest skeptic so my friends thought I'd had one too many to drink and/ or seeing things. However I was qualified, the next day on the front page of the local paper was the stories from hundreds of people that had sighted the high speed objects along the Cornwall cost. Even the RAF had tracked them on Radar.

Overall though it was quite humbling experience. I've always thought its quite stupid to assume were alone in the universe
owing to its size, and here was an experience I had that supported that view.

The intresting point for me though is that Europe seems to be alot more open with this stuff. In the US UFO's are always because of XYZ. Never we don't know! Very strange approach in the land of the allegedly free.




My 2 cents
