Duration: 3 minutes
No of observers: 2
Location: Colorado Springs, CO, USA
Characteristics: Aura or haze around object
The flying objects seem to appear and dissapear without leaving a trail in the long exposure photos.
I took these photos on July 4th around 9:30 pm MDT from my home balcony. I used a Canon T2i digital camera (18 Meg) set at ISO 800 and for 10 second exposures. Each picture was taken 30 seconds apart.
With those settings, any objects like airplanes, fireworks, an even helicopters would show a trail. Even the stars, if you zoom in, would show a small trail due to the earth rotation during 10 seconds of exposure.
The flying objects in the photos were pretty steady in their positions, except that they seem to appear and dissapear without leaving a trail. Notice the change from photos number 5 and 6, where quite a few objects appeared from the twighlight zone.
These objects were not visible with the naked eye. They showed up in my pictures due to the high sensitivity of the camera and the long exposure. The last three photos are just enlargerments of the first 3 (the originals). I promise there is no photoshop involved in this.
