To quote my daughter on the moon landing (for all mankind movie), “Mom that’s Hollywood”.
Wouldn’t say youtube is a credible source (nor the organization that posted it).
Also someone I know who was high up in NASA said that if they ever had definitive evidence of little green men, flying saucers, etc. that they would parade it up and down the Mall (eg washington mall) because it would be the biggest budget bonanza ever.
Loved one of the video comments, tongue in cheek, that if this was real we needed to build not just a wall but a roof too.
Actual funny comments over on the you tube page for this …
Undocumented immigrants from outer space. We need to built a roof too.
This “To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science” group looks to be doing interesting stuff, just not sure how deep the hucksterism level is … you can buy in for shares on their website. https://dpo.tothestarsacademy.com/
So, a fun fact for anyone that hasn’t clicked through to an article, the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science that released this video and I believe two others is a UFO group formed by Tom DeLonge, the lead singer of Blink 182.
“I don’t know what that is, so it has to be aliens.”
That’s some sound logic right there.
I heard something moving in the woods behind my house last night. No idea what it was. So clearly it was chupacabra. Or maybe bigfoot. Could’ve been a werewolf. No way it was just a family of raccoons though.
me: Do I believe in unidentified flying objects? Well, yeah. I’ve seen plenty of objects in the sky that I couldn’t identify.
Do I believe anything in the sky that I can’t identify is an alien spacecraft? lol No. That’d be silly.
The thing about imagery from IR cameras is that, while the human brain wants to interpret it as a photo, it is not. Essentially, all IR cameras are recording heat levels - from things that generate or reflect heat. Different cameras record different parts of the IR spectrum, and some can be adjusted to narrow or broaden the band it is recording. I don’t know the specs of the FLIR camera they were using and we don’t have access to the original recording, so anything is just a guess, including the size of the UFO.
FLIRs are usually mounted so that they can rotate and tilt, which is why they can lock on a target and stay on it while the aircraft is changing speed or banking. That also means that an object may appear to be “hovering” just because the FLIR is staying locked on it while it flies, and it may “speed away” simply because the FLIR lost the lock or was rotated away from it.
What I see is a flying object that is giving off a heat signature, which is very likely an engine. Then it turns or banks so that both engines are visible, which makes an elongated heat signature, with some surface heat reflection. Then it “speeds away” because the FLIR camera was rotated/tilted away from it.
Since the object was not identified, it is a UFO by default. So it is real imagery of a real UFO.
IR cameras are fun to play with. If you want to record a ghost video with IR, just find a house with a staircase and choose a nice, cold night. Then have someone in a long coat, cloak, or gown stand at the top of the stairs for a few minutes, then slowly walk down the stairs and exit. THEN start the IR camera, which will record a somewhat-human-shaped heat signature with its own wispy trail down the stairs. Recording IR in daylight is also interesting because the different heat levels from sun/shade distort the image, making buildings look deformed and windows look spooky. Cats, I have discovered, look exactly the same in IR as they look on a video camera. But what can you say - cats!
