Unidentified Flying Objects Updated 8-31-2015 © 2014-2015 Stephen Pitt
More imagery captured in an hour than can be processed in a day was immediately experienced.
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, some with apparent motion. For 14 years, the secret
lay hidden because outdated equipment hid the cause and effect nature of a beautiful UFO's presence.
Have you found the blue mushroom?
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.
The smaller and dimmer objects might require darkening of the
viewing area to see clearly. A magnifying glass can show more
detail, even at .jpg lossy conversion for the web.

A decade and a half ago, I missed some bit depth and misread background objects in the scanning
of two slides...and didn't notice that the "stars" had changed position and number. I chose slide 1,
the cause. For 14 years, slide 2, the effect, was kept in a protective binder.
Slide 1: Several smaller objects and the primary UFO © 2014-2015 Stephen Pitt Slide 2: Taken moments later, numerous objects appear.
At least five smaller objects accompany the primary UFO.

UFO daytime presence is cloaked with speed. There are serial images addressing the "invisibility" matter.
One movie shows six objects and a series of double UFOs. Only one, mimicing a jet, can be seen flying in
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.

UFO 6-1-2015, 8:42 P.M. @200mm: a. Before the event, the lights appear through the trees looking East. At this moment, I considered these to be landing lights only. There were no strobe or port-starboard red and green lights. b. During Event: c. After Event
DSC3170 Approaching lights serially imaged with Nikon 5100 looked like landing lights DSC3171 I initially suspected camera shake was behind the strange, linear quality. Then I saw the orbs, which were not shaken, and.. ..the long brownish trail, joined by another. Note the blue-green orbs and their trails, the delicate paths painted by the UFOs, as well as several red orbs. DSC3173 The last image shows a similar configuration to image 1 except much dimmer, with DSC3172 even dimmer.
