is there anything to this sighting?
yes, its real but there are no real pictures of it out there
David Marler's book is supposed to be excellent. I heard him on an old episode of (do I dare say it?) The Paracast.
Correct. Something happened. But nothing to show for it.
he is a good researcher, and one of the only that don't think that black triangles are man-made
UFO caught on film, clear but fast in the footage...
that clip is quite controversial but its more than likely either a bird flying near the drone or CGI (notice that the guy that videotaped it is a film maker)
Please explain why you say it's controversial, you're the only one saying that that I've read so far...So what the guy is a filmmaker does that mean everything he films is CGI or a bird?...
just like most UFO clips there are doubts about it's authenticity and due to the fact its blurry, its impossible to see if its a true UFO
Hence why its called a UFO, it's unidentified, which doesn't mean it's a fake or cgi or controversial...
however what we know about it makes the probability of an anomalous object very low
Soon as I heard that it flew 3 miles in 1 second (or whatever the guy said), I said to myself "That's a lie." His perspective is all off. Just like when people in Colorado saw a gigantic cigar shaped craft in the clear daytime sky - yeah, no. It's a spider web 6 feet in front of your face.
Here's what Mark Dantonio has to say about the clip;
Hi guys.. Being a drone guy myself I was drawn to the beautiful footage ... But also being a photo and video analyst I checked out your video. I could see at the point where the object changed direction and came toward the drone shows a noticeable change in the angle of the edges of the object from the apparent center of the object. In other words, it appears that the object flexed to change direction. To that end I raise the caution that perhaps your drone was charged by a hawk or more likely a falcon defending its territory which they do and I have had this happen as well. It looks like it is moving very fast because of the forward motion of the drone so the closing speed is disproportionately high. As the approaching object rotates to level flight as it comes toward the drone you can clearly see flexure at the 'wingtips' which is exactly what you see when I bird is exerting g forces on its lightweight frame to do these high speed aerobatics or in this case, a likely intercept of an intruder. The other issue I found is that you cannot tell how far away it is when it is first seen and is initiating a turn to by the drone. If it was as far as the mountain as suggested it would have been quite large perhaps the size of a cessna light aircraft or more but more importantly no one on site would have missed it. This is distance miscalculation is a common error people make when you dont know what something is. You cannot tell if its a large thing very far away or a smaller thing closer to the camera. If it was a large thing far away then as before the likelihood of not seeing it during the filming is vanishingly small. It would be the talk of everyone there. The point at which it caught the light however is where you saw it and this can be any distance away. Thus there is no possible way to make a calculation of its speed unless you know 1: how far away it is initially and 2: how fast the drone is moving forward. As the object passes the camera it would be fairly close to the camera. A hawk or a falcon could be missed until review rather easily. I have found many birds flying into the line of fire on the drones later after the fact even though I was monitoring the footage live. At the Grand Canyon on Native Lands my friends were flying a mission and were attacked constantly by cliff swallows. Birds defend their territory. So I simply offer that perhaps for the reasons I mention above it was more likely a falcon or hawk defending territory. I am erring on the side of falcon though as they exhibit similar movement patterns, and turn on a dime like this one did to charge the drone. Not debunking here just offering a cautionary note. -Marc Dantonio
Yeah I remember that spider web (ufo) video, too bad a bug didn't fly into it whilst filming...
I thought it was pretty amazing & cool that Chris O'Brien saw one on his house, realized what he was looking at, knew that that's what the incident in CO was, filmed it & posted it so everyone could see for themselves.
thanks!, thats the same conclusion i have reached, most videos that show small fast objects are either birds or bugs
Could you share how you determine what is "cgi" and what is not?
The first two move and appear like several other captures I've either seen or personally filmed, but I would have to have a closer look at them and slow them down.
The third one looks extremely close to some of the "dark orbs" I've seen captured on the net... These also I've filmed several times. They exhibit a kind of field, change shape, and if able to zoom in closer, change texture as they move as well. While I only saw "one" supposed capture of the "drone" at Gatwick, it looked quite similar this dark orb from PR, as well as ones Ive filmed. Once again, I would need to see much more to get a clearer picture.
I am curious however, what we can look for to establish if a video is cgi?
The first three look exactly like several other captures I've seen on the web or have personally filmed myself. They don't look like cgi to me, but want to learn techniques to sniff out when its used.
I've had videos I've filmed that were accused of being "cgi" that absolutely are not, yet no one has ever explained how my camera or iphone has been able to produce this.
I also think that a good deal of people don't know what to look for. You have to have alot of patience and watch alot of footage before you can start cross-referencing the flight and appearance characteristics. That's especially the case with the dark orbs.
can you upload these videos here
