The only thing missing from that photo is the dog trying to catch the frizzbe, putting the fake to the side you raise a good point HAL only problem being is have you ever tried contacting the aviation authority and getting a straight answer. I contacted them when what I take to be government official hovered about twenty feet above my head in a dirty great big black helicopter filming me, I got shoved from pillar to post and never got a answer only a large phone bill. When it comes to ET or MIB etc the doors are closed.

This isn't a report. But I find this amusing nonetheless... this is from the about page for SETV.org

"Search for ExtraTerrestrial Visitation or less formally, SETV, is a scientific based endeavor to collect meaningful and unambiguous data on objects in Earth's atmosphere or our solar system which may provide evidence of visitations from intelligent probes of extraterrestrial origin. SETV is a heterotic search model, a combination of SETA (Search for ExtraTerrestrial Artifacts) and optical SETI (OSETI) / microwave SETI, which are orthodox scientific search for ETI which use electro-optical signal receivers, large radio telescopes and narrow-band multi-channel receivers. SETV regards as its progenitor SETA which was a search for extraterrestrial artifacts in Earth orbit, Lunar orbit, libration points, the asteroid belt and elsewhere in the solar system.

The Organization for SETV Research or OSR, is the parent organization which identified the process and created the search model. The OSR is a private research organization whose mission is dedicated to collecting scientific data by implementing processes and principles developed to aid and conduct instrumented studies and studies of data acquired from probes, proxies, machines, craft and phenomenon of suspected extraterrestrial origin. It is OSR's principle purpose to promote the SETV search model.

SETV Should Not Be Confused With UFOlogy or the study of UFO reports! While some tiny fraction (<0.04% or 1 in 2,500) of the Anomalistic Observational Phenomena (AOP), which people have reported seeing in past decades may have been of intelligent ET origin, this has not been conclusively proven. Data collected in past case reports is curious, yet primarily anecdotal and 'soft' from an acquisition perspective. UFOlogy claims to have found some statistical invariants in the reports, enough to develop a classification system, but that is the most it has really accomplished. Considering the scientific demands for hard data, orthodox UFOlogy is not a desirable approach for a detailed low-level scientific analysis. Granted there are a few books on the subject worth reading (see references ) which contain a variety of useful, albeit mainly historical, information.

OSR is NOT affiliated with alien abductions, crop circles, animal mutilations, or alleged government conspiracies to cover up "the truth about aliens". These fields of study may in some cases lend themselves to a scientific investigation, but until an experiment or test is devised which includes instrumentation, these fields of study mainly involve speculation and untestable hypotheses. So if you are here to find information on these topics you've come to the wrong place. "


Maybe I should hang up my hat as a UFOlogist and become a... what kind of ologists are these guys? Whatever it is, I like the cut of their jib.

thanks, SAM, for the comparison. It's a bit hard to tell, but I would generally agree that the two objects are similar... both disks, both yellow, both canted. In actuality, I'd give more credence to yours than the other.

I can imagine a scenario in which the observer in Baildon Moor didn't actually manage a photo, and this photo is simply some sort of well-meaning recreation of the object.

The color makes enlargements hard to work with but at 400x you can see a slight ring about half way into the object like a raised center. There are also a row of evenly spaced bumps around this inner ring. I inverted the colors and was able to see a faint outline like a dome in the very center. The inverted color also brings out an almost flat band around the outer edge. If you remove the color and go black and white the band and inner details are a little more clear. I cannot say what it is but it isn't a regular frisbee.
Hub cap maybe?

you welcome, Reasoner. this is a rare ufo which picture teken by me. the photo taken from Baildon Moor is on poor light condition and low quality cell phone, that makes too much "noise" in the image. I usually not study this kind of photos, as hard to test.

Here's a news report of a UEO (unidentified exploding object). Mostly interesting in a kind of what the heck was that kind of way.

Unexplained “Phoenix Lights” explosion caught live on news broadcast

By Eric Pfeiffer | The Sideshow – March 9, 2012


http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/unexplained-explosion-caught-live-phoenix-news-broadcast-171534371.html



Phoenix's FOX 10 reporter Andrea Robinson was in the middle of an on-air report when an unexplained, bright white explosion appeared in the distance behind her.
The strange blast was caught on tape and aired live during Robinson's report. At first, news station employees thought the explosion was a transformer. But when FOX 10 checked with local utility providers APS and Salt River Project, they were told no transformers had blown in the area.
While the source of the explosion remains a mystery, it comes just before the 15th anniversary of one of the most-famous UFO sightings in recent history. On March 13, 1997, a cluster of glowing orbs moving in a V-shaped formation was spotted in the skies above Phoenix. That incident was also caught on film. The origin of the light formation has since been endlessly analyzed and debated.
Arizona is also home to Travis Walton, who famously claimed to have been abducted by a UFO in 1975. Walton has written a number of books on the subject, and his story was turned into the 1993 film "Fire in the Sky."
And while Phoenix officials remain stumped by the strange light explosion, FOX 10 has reached out to the public asking for assistance in explaining exactly what was caught on film.


I like how the author had to pad his story with vague UFO connections like "Travis Walton lives in Arizona...". But the explosion is pretty cool. I thought it might be a transformer, until reading the story.

there was a followup where the utility company admitted there was a problem with some of the wires, something something arcing etc. Not enough to take them offline.

NYC Apartment Experiments with Donnie Darko Treatment

So I read this article, thinking "maybe you shouldn't have so many people in your third floor apartment partying it up," but the last line just takes this some place else.

Third floor of NYC building collapses during party
By NBC News and msnbc.com staff
Sunday, March 18, 2012


http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/03/18/10739125-third-floor-of-nyc-building-collapses-during-party

The third floor of an apartment building in the Rockaway neighborhood of Queens, New York, collapsed during a party late Saturday night, injuring 12 people, emergency officials told NBC News.
The Fire Department / EMS press office told NBC that the third floor caved into the second floor and that all of the victims appeared to have been on the third floor. Officials said only two were taken to the hospital and the rest were evaluated at the scene.
Emergency officials told NBC that eight of the victims had to be extracted by New York firefighters.
The apartment building is in the 400 block of Beach 72nd Street.
Earlier tweets had said that an object appeared to have fallen from an aircraft and hit the building.


For those who don't know, the movie Donnie Darko chronicles the problems that arise for said Darko moments before a jet engine crashes into his room. So the UFO for this story is an unidentified falling object. I should put a vote to this. Jet engine? or Too many people in room, making an excuse for too many people in room?

Since people sometimes read my UFO in da Lamestream Media and sometimes reply here, I thought I'd have a bit of a troll with a somewhat serious question buried in there somewhere. This is a digression from the main point of the thread, so I guess I'm thread-jacking myself. Don't worry, I can get it back. I'm sure of it.

So, on a different non-UFO forum, some guy had as part of his bio the blurb about Conspiracy Theories:
Obama was born in the US. Osama was killed in May 2011. Al Qeada was responsible for 9/11. Global Warming wont result in an apocalypse. The golden trim around US flags is for decoration only. Central Bankers are not trying to take over the world. Fluoride was invented by the Nazis, yes, and they killed a lot of people; but there are medical benefits to their discovery, so in itself it is not evil. Vaccines dont cause autism. Anthrax vaccination wont kill you. Chemtrails dont exist, its called "engine exhaust".

This is what some people believe, folks! If that spreads, it could get dangerous! But seriously, I mean, don't we all have our own pet theories, maybe not being two feet in them, but at least "suspending judgment" until ALL THE FACTS ARE PRESENT... know-what-i-mean? How do we pick and choose? Which of the above theories are just crazy, and which ones have at least some smoke to them? Does it ever give us pause, when we vehemently advocate something from the above list, knowing how we feel about the rest of them? Or is anyone here pretty much fully onboard with all of the theories our anonymous fella up above believes are fallacious (or not worth worrying over)?

How many of you believe exactly as this guy does? Food for thought, I hope.

ADDENDUM: in re-reading, it is more of somewhat serious question with a troll buried in there somewhere. Unless you consider the whole thing a troll XD

It is impossible to know the truth, what is real and what is fantasy. Such as the CIA or MI5&6 have elaborate setups and even they struggle to find fact to back any statement. This leaves us with one option and that is our own judgment. I use the following as a rule of thumb and no doubt I am sometimes wrong but at least it eliminates most of the rubbish put forward.
1/ money, if someone is asking or looking to gain money means it stinks.
2/ common sense, is the statement possible or impossible, if it is a possibility then even if it seems totally outlandish you have to adopt an open verdict.
3/once bitten twice shy. If someone is caught lying then I mark them as compulsive liars full stop .such as MPs who were caught with their hand in the till, if they can lie about fiddling their expenses then they could be just about lying about every syllable that comes out of their mouths.
This is how I look for the puff of smoke in what is not a perfect world but is a world full of corruption and deceit.

UFO Filmed from Airplane over Seoul (Video)
by Tom Rose
April 08, 2012 07:20 PM EDT


http://news.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474981249757

A classic, saucer-shaped UFO was filmed from the window of an airplane flying over Seoul, South Korea. What is it?

As the passenger uses a video camera to catch the view of the city out the window, a saucer-shaped, white-colored unidentified flying object whizzes by, erratically flying in a crazy path. It dips upward for a second before it disappears from view.

The witness is clearly surprised, speaking a dialect which sounds eastern European. In any language, it's clear he is trying to call someone else's attention, but by then it's too late.

There has been a rash of new UFO sightings lately from airplane windows, but this one also has a segment of the video in which the object is magnified and enhanced. It doesn't help identify the object. It appears to be bowl-shaped and looks like no known aircraft.

So what is it?


Edit: had trouble as usual getting the video link working right. Here's the youtube URL

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=8qx23sJfiLs

Interestingly, the article writer seems to be just writing about this youtube clip, which in turn got published to other news sites and aggregaters (sp?). If the video filmer/maker here is full of it, then it gets spread across news desks, re-disseminated, and pushed as some kind of sort of fact.

Not a news blurb, but a personal observation and admission.

Today while scanning news aggregators and spying yet another claim of UFOs in the form of simple bright orbs, I caught myself shaking my tiny fist in rage at the "orbs, yet again orbs! so sick of orbs! easiest crap to fake!"

And a recollection stopped me cold. That was exactly what I had seen on a warm summer night as a boy. Bright streaking balls going impossibly fast and turning at impossible angles. The thing in my personal experience that I could not explain, and I kvetch about more orbs in the news.

So I am conceding that though orbs are likely the easiest UFO to fake, and there's a glut of them in UFO news, for me at least, that is one genuine phenomenon worthy of investigation.

I said it. Call me gullible, but those orbs are something. Or something else, at least. wink
