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. 

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                                                                                                                   2014-2015  Stephen Pitt                                                 .

At least five smaller objects accompany the primary UFO.

DSC0240        A UFO and jet nearly collide.  As this happens, the object's color, shape and size change.                          click image                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

One way UFOs cloak is by traveling very fast. 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
real time.
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.
