Looking back first                    

In 2014, I "re-scanned" unknown object slides taken in 2000 immediately below and was surprised with the

The first images were taken 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.  It remained
stationary long enough to finish set up and capture two pictures each before vanishing.  We had no idea
there was a sudden increase in number of objects.  6

The slides were "re-scanned" 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, then
imaged a Nikon 85mm portrait lens.

So, a decade and a half ago, I missed some bit depth and misread background objects before
scanning the two slides below having not noticed that the "stars" had changed position and number.
I chose slide 1,  the cause.  For 14 years, slide 2, the effect, was kept unseen in a  protective binder.


The smaller and dimmer objects might require darkening of the                                                                                          
viewing area to see clearly.
A magnifying glass can show more
detail, even at lossy.jpg conversion for the web.

Slide 1: Several smaller objects and the primary UFO                                                                                   

Slide 2  Taken moments later:       

At least five smaller objects accompany the primary UFO.

to mimic planes in some of the images to follow.

Most Recent Sighting Dates First:                                    2014-2016  Stephen Pitt

The sightings were recorded by digital camera and optics of four focal lengths: 200mm, 300mm, 498mm, and             
600mm. There are sequences focused on shape and color changes as well as object behavior, and motion
across and through clouds. Most fly at speeds beyond human perception, but not the cameras' electronics.
During nighttime they mimic airplane lights and layouts. A few are almost perfect. Most are not.  At these
relatively slow speeds, it's much less difficult to capture non-trailed images.  The daytime shots are mostly
blurred or fuzzy at a 60 frame per second movie rate.

the strange, linear quality. Then I saw the orbs, which
were not shaken,
with the smoke-like trails led by two unknown objects.

DSC2911  3-8-2015: A day with model rockets and UFOs.  Click image for objects captured but
not fully realized for months afterward.  UFOs were attracted to the models, which weren't damaged.
Thats a UFO skyward.

During February and March 2015, multiple movies were captured midday at a suburban open field
in Southern California.  When the movies were examined, I found considerable evidence of orb-like
entities measuring under three feet in length/diameter, excepting one large orb-like form. Entities
engaged our rockets and every component after deployment of the parachute.

No harm came to the rockets.
