Hey all,

If you are wanting to shoot some good photos or video 'if' you should see a UFO (or Alien for that matter), you really need to practice. If something is flying overhead and at good speed, you have a handful of seconds to do this in. Knowing how your camera works, how to turn it on the fastest way possible, knowing any shortcuts for working it, will help you to catch a good photo or video.

We all know how to take photos, but if you have migrated to a new phone, new camera, and its slightly different, then you need to fully check out all it can do, its various settings, and now and then, take a break and just 'practice' a few drills to make sure you get it all right and can get photo ready as quickly as possible.

A few weeks ago, 3 slow moving 'things' that I thought were orbs were flying right near my house, nearly flying over, when they started turning. I quickly got out my camera and 'thought' I was video taping them. What I think I did was hit the video button, but a second button appears, record/pause. I do not think I hit the record and I recorded nothing. (thats all I can figure I did as I had only 1 second of one video and I took 2 videos).

So, be ready, get your camera or your camera app fully figured out. Practice getting it out of your pocket and snap a pick as quick as possible. Some camera's like the HTC ONE M8 phone can go straight to camera by holding it up horizontally (like a camera) and clicking up-volume. Done! Your camera should be on and ready for a snap. Practice by taking pictures of a pet or loved one. You can always erase them later. Do this with video as well.

You wont be sorry, I think. Even if you never spot a UFO, at least you will be ready.

Good advice, Wings. I plan to take more pictures myself. I've noticed I've never been able to get a good photo when they show their lights at night. I think there's two reasons for this: 1) most cameras don't take good night photos; they need more light to focus and 2) I don't know how many times I've seen a UFO throw on its lights only to shut them off the second I turn on my camera app in my phone. This October I saw two of the orange UFO's with red lights on the top hovering over the town I was approaching. They stayed there for a long time, and I thought "Why not try to snap a pic?" I pulled out my phone, opened my photo app, but the VERY SECOND I hit the shutter button, they blinked off and didn't show their lights again. Little stinkers. I think the reason why they tend to throw on their lights at night is because they want to be seen on their terms. They don't want a photo and if you happen to get one, at least it will be grainy and impossible to distinguish because it's at night. I have almost never seen a UFO turn on its lights during the day. Those times I have, it has been at sunset with the sun behind them so taking a photo is practically impossible. They know what they're doing.

However, I'm going to try a new strategy. Most of them are not intending to be seen during the day. In fact, it's practically impossible to see them when they are using camouflage technology. In the pictures I snapped of the small reflective sphere, it was during the day, and I didn't see the object with my eyes, only in the photo. Looking at the sphere, you can tell it has a mirror-like surface. It really reminds me of the camouflage tech I've read about in science magazines. There are fabrics and materials being made that have tiny sensors that can read the visual information around them and then copy and project similar visual colors/light from their surface causing them to blend in with their surroundings similar to the natural abilities of squid and octopi. We already have this tech. Those spheres that I caught on film seem to be exhibiting this kind of tech. It is really hard to see an object like this that is flying around quickly against a backdrop of pure blue sky. It's practically impossible for the human eye to detect and focus on such an object because of the visual "noise" of the surrounding environment. However, a camera can capture it. A camera doesn't have a brain that insta-photoshops all visual information and tries to "clean it up" like our brains try to do. I think our cameras could capture objects that could be using this kind of tech during the day. So how do you know if something is up in the sky or not?

Well, there were several weeks this past July where I kept seeing small flashes of light in the clear blue sky wherever I seemed to drive my car. It was really noticeable. I would keep staring at the spot where I saw a flash expecting to see an airplane high in the sky, but I never saw one. Then I would see another quick flash on the other side of the sky, then another, and another. I just assumed it was my eyes playing tricks on me. I was afraid my retina was beginning to detach! However, after a few weeks, I stopped seeing the flashes of light in the sky. No retina damage. I really think it might have been some of these UFOs using this type of camouflage technology. I couldn't see the body of a craft, but I could catch the glint of it whenever it reflected the sunlight as it moved. Now whenever you see a flash of light in the daytime sky, but don't see an airplane, start taking pictures of the area as quickly as you can. You might have a better chance at capturing something. They are not intending to be seen and think they are well hidden. Their letting that guard down might be enough for your camera to catch something really good.

Many thanks! That is a brilliant idea.

I too have seen some 'things' that are more like streaks, but thought either I am seeing things, or they are flying at 1,000 MPH and I just cant see them with my human eyes, so whats the point. Kind of makes me mad, but oh well. What I see is similar to being at night, standing on the sidewalk, the streetlights are on, and you look around in the sky and a light burn or light absorbsion on your eye causes a flash like a streak that arcs and at first it is like you are seeing something, but then I realize its from the street light. But.............. It happens during the day, and no streetlights are on. I dont know...

Reminds me of that sleek little thing that flies past the window of that woman being interviewed on TV in England, a small craft flying over the Thames river, probably doing some ridiculous speed that is unheard of, but in perhaps 5 frames of video, there it is, zipping smoothly along.

It is hard to tell what is a trick of your eyes and what could be real sometimes. There's always floaters and weird optical tricks your brain plays; it's hard to know what to trust. But I look at this way, if you see a flash of something from the corner of your eye, take some pictures. If you don't capture anything, and it just turns out your eyes were playing tricks on you, you are none the worse for having snapped some pics of empty sky. It's not like we are still in the days of film and processing. You can take as many pictures as you want for free, and if nothing shows up, delete them with a push of a button, no film or money wasted. So if you get pictures of nothing, just delete. But if you do capture something, oh boy! So snap away.

I do encourage everyone, however, to check their pics immediately after taking. Don't let a lot of time pass. Sometimes unusual spots can show up on your pics that are explainable like a flying bird or a spot on your windshield. It's easier to check them out when you are still there in the context of the environment: "Oh, yeah, that black spot is that buzzard flying around up there..." But if you let a lot of time pass between when you take the pictures and view them, you may have forgotten all about that bird and mistake that dark smudge for something else. Happy picture taking! Post it if you snap something good!

Speaking of photos....I guess someone wanted their picture taken.

A little after 6pm local time, I got in my car to go pick up some dinner and what do I see hovering over town? Why a little orange UFO, of course! It was a big bright orange light hovering stationary over town. It grew in brightness until it was 2-3 times larger than Venus then it dimmed and blinked out. It wasn't an airplane: the light was stationary and it grew way too large to be landing lights; it also disappeared, no strobe lights took its place. As I was driving, I saw it and whipped out my phone. and took a few pictures and tried to take a video.

This experience is a nice example of how crappy night photos of UFOs can be. Even though the light looked huge at its brightest and seemed to be just as bright as the highway lamps, it only occasionally showed up in the video as a flickering white light. In real life, the light was orange and did not flicker and it was frickin' huge! So frustrating. Again, being at night the camera can't seem to pick out the light among the noise of the street lights or focus enough to get a good color match. I'll try to post how the light showed up in a photo. It's dark, there's some motion on the camera since I was driving and it was night and the camera couldn't focus, so the shape is distorted (not accurate at all). Really, you are left with an indefinable smudge. It's so frustrating! Night photos suck. Maybe if I had my sister's digital SLR set on a tripod with her expertise and the UFO would show up on cue could I get a decent photo.

File comment: I had to lighten the photo and zoom and crop to get it to show up close. It's the thin string of light. The bright lights below to the right are house lights.

Yep, lol...

When I photographed the three orange things at night recently, one was just a dot on black. Its like, why even try. Maybe if it were 10 feet away so you see detail. But........! You documented it and with a surrounding area for verification and scale. Nice!

Thats a bummer. You could try reformatting the smart phone, if its a cellphone you use, and see if that wipes the program that might have been remotely installed.

I watched a couple of YouTube videos of people filming UFO's today. Funny how they didnt see the saucer hovering next to the ballpark that is in the view of the camera, but there it is later when they watched the film. So many people are filming UFO's without knowing it. Apparently we cannot see them, but cameras can.
