Looking back first                    

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

The first images were captured 6-1-2000 after setting-up for sky imaging at Joshua Tree National Park using Fuji Provia (fine grain slide film) exposed
for about 10 seconds using 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 it vanished.  We had no idea there had been a sudden increase in number of objects in the field.

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 through 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.

detail, even at lossy.jpg conversion for the web.

At least five smaller objects accompany the primary UFO.

DSC0240   A UFO and jet combination is commonplace.  As this happens, the object's color, shape and size may change.                 

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'.

DSC3171- During the Event: I initially suspected camera shake was behind the strange, linear quality. Then I
saw the orbs, which were not shaken, along with the smoke-like trails led by two unknown objects.
