Month – August 2007

Orbs

Here in Washington, I’ve photographed orb-like objects, spherical objects, three times now. The first two times both to the north and I believe those first to may have a terrestrial, less than exciting, explanation. I have since found out that Whidbey Island Navel Air Station launches a spherical metallic practice balloon. It is only a few feet in diameter and has the appearance of those first two objects.

Being metallic, reflective, it reflects the color of the sky and ground just as those objects did, and for that reason is very stealthy, difficult to see. These objects also slowly drifted, like a balloon would.

But the third photo, the group of six objects photographed at Juanita, they were fast moving, flew in formation. They appeared white, like this one sent to me by Cindy, and like the ones up in Surrey, BC.

Like Cindy, I really would like to know what these are. Are they ours or from elsewhere? If they are ours, just what technology propels these or allows them to hover for long periods?

Ours or theirs, what is their purpose? It’s difficult for me to believe objects could hover in our airspace for half an hour or longer and our air traffic controllers not be aware of it. Even if they didn’t pick it up on RADAR, they would be spotted by incoming aircraft. So I have to think our government knows about these but is keeping the information from us for some unknown reason.

More Orbs – This Time in Portland, OR

Cindy from Portland, Oregon writes (in part):

I love reading your blog … I found your blog in search for what I’ve
been seeing this year.. these white / silver spheres (or orbs or whatever
you call them) are.

No one seems to take notice or blows it all off as a FAKE — but it all
is starting to freak me out. WHY are they hovering over SE Portland,
Oregon – sometimes up to 30 minutes?

So to AMUSE them out there, since my serious vids that I have tried to
share, well, I took the some snap shot stills from my 21 minute video of
this SPHERE I video taped on Aug 17 2007 (observed in the SAME SPOT for
over 25 minutes! ) I then compiled the images in time stamp order and
added MUSIC in the back ground and made a simple video and uploaded to
Youtube – ( I RARELY upload to Youtube because the DRM the heck out of
videos)

See it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vxBsYf4s48

But MUCH more details (details are so important when in regards to UFOs
etc. ) about this particularly sighting along with the full version of the
video (where you hear me cuss ALOT – sorry about my cussing – and why I
will not upload it out there) is found on my sort of private / unknown
web site here:

I’ve taken 24 minutes of video from this site, edited out all of the time the UFO was off-screen, behind clouds, etc, leaving just over 11 minutes of video. Sent to veoh.com which allows long and high quality videos, and then embedded the results here.

I had originally only created the above web site back in March 2006 about
something I filmed from back in 1992 but lately since I started the
little web site, I’ve seen others — only took me over 14 -15 years to
video tape more! LOL

Anyway, I just wanted to share a bit of what I’ve seen and tried to video
tape with YOU – because I really enjoy reading your blog. I am so sorry
for my “truck driver” mouth cussing heard on the videos.
AND I am NOT saying what I’ve taped are ET… I constantly question if
what we’ve seen are OURS ( wouldn’t surprise me with Bush in the White
House) or NOT from EARTH.. or BOTH? But I do NOT film or create fake BS
crap. I detest it when I see people do that sort of thing with THIS
subject. Ticks me off to no end. Because, since 1992, the 9 witnesses
here in Oregon that saw that one thing over our area for over 25 minutes
… welll, let’s just say we take the subject very seriously. We’ve
never seen THAT kind around here since, but we’ve never forgotten it
either.

All the best

I felt this was worth sharing in a post but not sufficiently topically related to warrant adding it to the resources on the sidebar.The link above does have some UFO related video but it is primarily oriented towards conspiracy theories. The illuminati and all that.

I have this to say, I’m 48 years old, I’ve heard variations of this same conspiracy for the last thirty years. Over the years the time table and numbers and some of the details change but the basic plot remains the same.

When I first heard this story, this planet had a population of 4 billion, and the illuminati plan was to reduce it to 250 million, now it’s 6.3 billion to 500,000. While a war starting in the Middle East and spreading has been a popular method, I’ve also heard of engineered plagues, mass starvation, and fake alien invasions as proposed methods of population reduction.

There are several aspects of this that I don’t buy into, one is that the reason is the supposed carrying capacity of the planet. This is spoken of as if it’s a hard number, in truth there are many variables that affect the planets carrying capacity and the carrying capacity could be that of the existing population and much higher if we were willing to make the necessary adjustments, and I am of the believe that the people running this planet are well aware of that.

So if they want to get rid of us, or the majority of us, I guess they probably will, but it won’t be a carrying capacity issue, more likely a greed issue.

ET Typology

I received an two e-mails today from Dimitris Hatzopoulos that were blind carbon copied to me. The second of the two stated, “Feel free to copy / share / remix or link any of my work.”

As it happens, I already have a link in the sidebar to his website Best UFO Resources. I find him to be a credible and dedicated researcher with a genuine interest in the field so I shall relate what was related to me in his e-mail and comment upon it as I feel appropriate.

He states:

Attempting a typology based on the CE3 cases witness descriptions. I found intriguing the apparent similarities between (listed in Chronological order, as SOM101 was received in Mar-1994):

1/ CE3 Caponi, Italy 1993 (photos and story)
2/ Magestic-12 SOM1-01 description of EBE Type I
3/ CE3 Varginha, Brazil 1996 (for which A.J. Gevaerd said there are over 80 direct first hand witnesses)

There are many web pages on the Caponi and Varginha cases, I list several sources in: http://www.hyper.net/ufo/occupants.html

Look at the Caponi pictures at: http://www.ufologie.net/htm/caponipics.htm

The Varginha case witnesses talk about “oily brown skin”, “very small hands with three extremely long fingers”, “huge veins running down it’s neck” (perhaps the tubes seen in the Caponi’s photos?). There is a difference in the description of length of arms and legs, but the being seen by the three girls at at Varginha was seen in kneeling position (which incidentally is also how Caponi’s sketch depicts it). Apparently, the Caponi being is wearing a jumpsuit and “helmet” in all but the last photo.

MJ12 SOM010 (which I don’t find very convincing, but which the MJ12 researcher’s have worked on for years, their website rates the highest rate of confidence) describes EBE-Type-I with a round cranium, chalky-yellow pebbled skin, 4 long digits, and legs which are bowed and proportinately large.

Caponi ET photograph

Caponi ET Photo

Look at the legs in this photo from:
http://www.ufologie.net/htm/caponipics.htm.

They appear as if they are made out of crumpled paper. I strongly suspect that’s because they are. Looking at this, what I see are some old grocery bags with some shellac on the final project once it had dried.

The Brazil case is another matter. Although there is much that suggests there is a reality to this event, the verifiable strange death of a 23 year old policemen that touched the alien, over 80 witness accounts, the description seems quite different from the Caponi ET. The drawings are also much different leading me to believe that the Varginha Brazil case, while interesting, is unrelated to Caponi.

So in short, I find it difficult to lump these two together in any sort of typology, I see Caponi as type PaperMache, and Varginha as probably real and unique.

His second e-mail I will not reproduce in full because it only referenced a photo on Rense.com taken in December of 2007 by Lynn in MA.

Dimitris takes issue with Jeff’s comments on Rense.com, I take issues with both of them.

I do not feel there is enough information in the photo to come to the information in the photos to come to the conclusion that the blue glow is UV or that it’s the glow of ionized air, or anything else.

UFO

This photo contains a couple of objects which may or may not be mundane terrestrial flying objects. On the left you will notice what looks like a bird, but zoom in, can’t see a tail.

On the right, what looks vaguely like a helicopter but up close it is strikingly different. I didn’t hear a helicopter at the time but it may have been sufficiently distant that I could not hear it where I was standing.

I took this photo on the south side of Alki Point. It was 97°F that day. The heat caused a lot of atmospheric turbulence that distorted and blurred distant objects. Additionally, there was a lot of atmospheric haze and so most everything you see here was in a blue haze.

I’ve tweaked the RGB brightness curves separately to enhance color and contrast. Expanding a very narrow range of brightness results in expanding noise as well. Subsequent to making curve adjustments, I used a digital camera noise reduction algorithm that is present in Paintshop Pro. Basically, I am trying to bring a very marginal video signal out of the noise.

Please take these things into consideration when you view this photograph. I am posting it here, largely as an example of what extreme processing can do under very marginal conditions because you will see photographs like this posted elsewhere advertised as alien craft when in fact it’s impossible to tell visually what something this close to the noise threshold is.
