Unidentified Flying Objects


I have re-processed unknown object slides 1 & 2.

The images were taken on 6-1-2000 after setting-up for sky imaging at Joshua Tree National Park using Fuji
Provia (fine grain film) for 8-10 sec with camera, an old F3 Nikon, scope-mounted to image galaxies near                                                                                                                                           
The Big Dipper.  The time was about 9:00 p.m.

The primary object was spotted by my nephew, Bruce Cosgrove, using 10x50 binoculars, and remained
stationary long enough to set up and capture two pictures each. It then vanished.
 
The following images were re-imaged using a Nikon digital camera delivering good resolution and
sensitivity. Each slide was placed on a tilted monitor's bottom ledge, backlit with Photoshop 255 white
and photographed with a Nikon D 5100, two extension tubes, and Nikon 85mm portrait lens attached.


The smaller and dimmer objects might require darkening of the viewing area to see clearly.
A magnifying glass can show more detail, like focused objects and stars.

Several smaller unknown objects accompany the primary UFO.  The primary object may appear out of focus.  It is not.  Closer examation reveals that the smaller objects and stars are in sharp focus, while the primary object shows filaments radiating out and is granular.
