Hyundi, our ongoing discussion about mystery and misleading/hidden (or whatever) things? Are you not standing smack in the middle of the subject matter?

I have been highly intrigued by the Lone Star UFO phenomenon ever since the Stephenville Case. Something might strange is flying the friendly skies in Texas.

Lawwalk, how close are you to Lubbock? Any clues about the high number of reports from there?

Hey Tim

It's aproximately 332 miles. Probably less people playing their gameboys and texting may be the clues. I found when you look up in the sky,you see a lot more sightings. (Just a guess though) smiley

That could explain it. Texas is one big state, but a Mach 3+ object would actually reach you pretty quick from Lubbock. So you should be seeing at least some of the things they are.

HEY LAW,

I LIKE THIS ONE AS IT'S DAYLIGHT...MOREOVER,WHEN YOU ENLARGE ONE CAN SEE TWO DISTINCT ORBS/SPHERES.FURTHERMORE,THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME VARIANCE OR DISTORTION REVEALING SAID OBJECT IS IN SOME SORT OF FLUX.
THE SHOT IS GOOD ENOUGH TO ENLARGE WITHOUT PIXILATION DISTORTION WHICH IS QUITE REFRESHING...GOOD CATCH...EXCELLENT WORK MY FRIEND!!!...

Lawwalk, you've got a kindred spirit on these boards with you now. One with a great piece of equipment. Have you read the thread where Bentbros told about his eight inch Meade scope with all the image capture accessories?

I mentioned that he needs to pay you a visit so everyone will finally know what's going on in the skies of the Lone Star State. Ever since Stephensville, somethings been cruising those skies. While whatever it is has caused a spate of bogus You Tube stuff, it's also resulted in a lot of sightings genuine enough to warrant a lot of F-16 low level flights immediately after the event.

You'll have to excuse me, but that's substantial enough to cause me to want to know some specifics. We're having an elevated number of sightings around here that dragging the air force out too, but nothing that's caused any of those low level drag races that I've heard about. That requires something substantial, because deniability leaves in a hurry when jets show up at 500 feet.

Just out of curiosity Lawwalk, how much magnification are you able to apply to your pictures anyway? Sitting in one of the major UFO hotspots like you are, how much benefit might you get from even a four or five inch scope?

You catch your share of images, and most aren't of the variety seen in unmentionable places, but you're still suffering from the distance factor. If I had it to spare, I'd contribute to a fund to help you acquire a basic scope, considering your luck at catching images.

Of course digital cameras are a problem here as well. My wife and I both snapped a picture of the harvest moon last year. I got a decent image with a WWII era 35 MM without any magnification, while she got a speck of light using a 35 MM digital with a 5x zoom. Needless to say, I was more than a little surprised. It definitely made my mind up about what camera I pack around. Unfortunately, the lens doesn't swap on this collapsible war correspondent's model.

Another place where it might prove beneficial for one of our members to have a good setup might be the upper UK. They seem to have some unusual sightings there as well. Of course I'm not as difficult to please as most people on these boards probably are. I would be just as excited about some images of classified military craft. I suspect that those account for a lot of our recent escalation in sightings around here. When they seem to appear to be flying known traffic routes so often that's not hard to determine though, is it?

From what you said previously, you're just a few minutes flight time from Lubbock at above mach speeds, correct? And so many reports you read about are from that approximate region. Is there anything in the area which might account for that concentration?

Tim

I just read back through the thread. 332 miles? That's just a sneeze a supersonic speeds and altitude. Small wonder you're getting pics.

This area used to be a hotspot,but not so much now.Seems they may have moved on,I'm talking about where I live.In 2004-2006 were the best times of my personal sightings.I am convinced beyond a doubt there are strange flying objects in the sky that don't appear to be ours.My wife and two daughters have seen objects closer than I have several times,of course they didn't have a camera handy.An example,my wife and youngest daughter were in Seagoville Texas at a Walmarts sometime during 2006-2007 at dusk one evening.My daughter went in to purchase something and my wife waited in the car.It wasn't completely dark when my wife looked up and saw this gigantic triangle slowly traversing right over her. It had no lights on,but was light enough still to see it was a perfect triangle not making a sound.She was a solid skeptic until then.The good experiences I've had,a scope would be of no use because they were traveling so fast.My camera is digital with a 12x manual optical zoom and 10 mgs.Gets a pretty decent picture when zoomed to 12,at least most of the time one can tell if it's a bird or plane. If the objects don't have wings or tails,I post them here for people to see,not saying they are ets because I don't know. There's nothing around this area that I know of that would attract these objects.Take care... smiley

Hi Lawwalk;

Most travel too fast you say? That sounds suspiciously like a few of the things being seen here recently. But a few of my friends and myself are the only people I know of who saw one close enough to discern what it was as pointed out in my silent planes thread. One of the strangest things I've ever seen, despite it obviously being ours. Traveling at that speed should at least produce a supersonic crack. I'm still trying to find out more about that craft, whatever it was.

You should have enough magnification to bring images closer if that's a true lens. You're correct about catching low flying, fast vehicles. Those need to be caught in parallax most times. Definitely when using a scope. I was thinking of vehicles flying at higher altitudes. Those are the most intriguing ones I've seen around here. Speed doesn't seem as great when they're so high.

Also, if sightings are slowing down there, then they must be increasing elsewhere. That's interesting. I am still seeing reports with Lubbock mentioned though, so something is still taking place.
