Can the photographer provide the city and ideally the street location where these images were taken? This would allow trying to find the building on google maps or earth.

Also, and not to sound like a broken record, please provide the original unedited images. This would help determine the possible correct time and camera settings.

This does not have to be all guess work and a game of 20 questions.

The photo’s quality is too low( as everything are out of focus, ). it become no study value. Next time you need to sit your camera shutter speed fast than 1/800 second (you better not use phone ‘s camera). Check those photos on my blog, the distant of almost the ufo objects to my camera only 30-50 meters. I only saw ufos moving slowly few times even I have thousand times encounters with them.

Purr... your example has the sun behind the camera operator shining on the church steeple... the picture from AlienSoul shows the church between the camera and the sun, so the front is shadowed.

That actually looks very much like a famous church in Lampasas, TX (note the spelling).

Also, AlienSoul didn't say whether 3 am or 3 pm, but it looks like 3 pm, doesn't it...

So, AlienSoul, umm. Interesting photo. Were you alone? If not, what did your passenger think?


Sorry for not making it clear enough, it was around 3 in the afternoon central time. And no I wasn't alone, I was with my friend. We both saw it, I could only take two photos because right when I took the second, the object began to move slowly then take off.

OK. I was mistaken about the church. There's no famous church in Lampasas, Texas.

AlienSoul. There's some nagging questions we have that we need answers to. It makes it easier for us to cross-reference your case with other sightings if we have more concrete facts. Yours might be part of a larger story, but we can't tell because of the vagueness of your report.

You have a photo. That's great, but we have nothing to go by on that. We can't search cases by a photo.

1. You got a case number or a link to MUFON's site for your report?
2. What day was it?
3. As Hal asked, where was this? What town? Hopefully a cross street, but at least what road were you on?
4. What was the name of the gun range?
5. Do you have any more details about the local news talking about a UFO in the area? Like what station was it on? What day was that?
6. How many days after the photo was taken did you report it to MUFON?
7. How many days after reporting to MUFON did the men in black visit you? What did they look like? The men in black didn't identify themselves?
8. The men in black obviously didn't confiscate your camera or pictures. Did they give you any explanation of what they were looking for? Did you ask them?

In essence, you've given us better than a random UFO shot, because there are names, details, and times. Unfortunately, all those names, details, and times are vague and in fragments. So we don't really have a whole to go on.

Think of all the famous UFO cases. Sometimes there's pictures, sometimes there's not. But all of them have exact details on names, time and date, street/cross street where observation took place, a timeline of events, and follow-up investigation details. You see what's missing here? Help us out just a tad more if you can. You don't have to give your name or your friend's name... but are you both in the same high school? What did he think? Were you meeting anyone else at the gun range? I mean... help us with a bit more of a solid timeline to give this the right perspective.

First off, I don't think that is a church. It has a weather vane on top of the spire and it would have a cross or some other religious token if it was a church!

It might have once been one though! There are plenty of old churches that are now unconsecreated and used for some other purpose. Specially in the midwest!
Nice picture though. Wouldn't the stats of when it was taken be in the cameras properties for that picture?
You could verify that I believe!

Yep, I was the guy requesting more info.

This thread is an example of one of the main problems we often encounter. Here we are speculating on things when all the original poster has to do is provide some basic info and answer some simple questions. I'll reserve judgement on what may be going on here.

But when someone posts something and requests assistance it's not unreasonable to expect some more input.

Aliensoul,

.. I headed down to a gun ranch in Lam Pasas..

So, where exactly were you when you took the picture ?

If you live there, do you know what the building was ? You seem to be unsure of this.

Found it! I found the building

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caldwell_County_Courthouse_(Texas)

Hrm. Something something very odd something.

Doing a drive time between that spot (the courthouse) and the town of Lampasas is 100 miles. That seems to be an awful long way to go to use a shooting range, especially since there are closer ones.

Man. Why is it when i look at those two pics side by side it hurts my brain? You can tell from a lot of details they are the exact building, and though the tree on the left is smaller in the bright picture, you can tell it's the same tree (just that in one of the pictures the tree is either younger or trimmed drastically). But there's no flags in AlienSoul's pic. What IS there are the stars on the very top eaves of the squared cupola. By the way, the Caldwell County Courthouse exhibits Second Empire architectural style, which is how I found the building.

I'd like to see a recent picture of the courthouse. I know that it's slated to be renovated...

Alright. I answered my own questions again. I used google street view. The architecture is such that the northwest and southeast corners look nearly identical. What's different is the stuff around it (the flagpoles, the trees). I'm going to have to try and upload the pics, since these shots are dynamic.

As an experiment, I'm going to use the urls that enclose the positioning for my searches. Here is the southeast corner:
http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.42661473,d.dmQ&biw=1048&bih=584&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=lockhart+texas+caldwell+county+courthouse&fb=1&gl=us&hq=courthouse&hnear=0x8643565475b13605:0x853352412d5fe114,Lockhart,+TX&sa=X&ei=6HAlUfDRO8ay0QHMqIHYBQ&ved=0CJUBELYD

and here is the northwest corner:
http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.42661473,d.dmQ&biw=1048&bih=584&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=lockhart+texas+caldwell+county+courthouse&fb=1&gl=us&hq=courthouse&hnear=0x8643565475b13605:0x853352412d5fe114,Lockhart,+TX&sa=X&ei=6HAlUfDRO8ay0QHMqIHYBQ&ved=0CJUBELYD
If this view properly pops up... you can see that there's a tree right on the corner. I think this has probably been removed, and what we see is exactly the pic that AlienSoul has. The road is on 183, which ends up getting to Lampasas. But it's FAR FAR away. So, is there some backstory to that, AlienSoul? Why you driving so far to the gun range?

ADDENDUM: the links don't work right. You have to grab them, copy them into the address bar, then zoom in and look at street view. Move mouse around to rotate the view until you get to the right view of the courthouse.

You got me stumped right there, AlienSoul. You have to explain the timeline for me. Above I see you SNAP (photo 1), zoom in, SNAP (photo 2), the object moves away, and up and is gone. As a result you could not make other photos.

While I was in Lam Pasas and saw the object, I stopped the car since I was near a red light. Took both photos, the object remained in the same place for a remaining two minutes then it looked like it started spinning around and took off.
That was all I could honestly remember.


But here you take both pics, after which the object remains stationary for two minutes. (Why not make more than 2 photos?)

Can you solve the apparent contradiction?
