xx UFO - Stafford
« Thread started on: Jul 4th, 2007, 09:08am »

I'm soliciting opinions on this object, photographed by myself outside my home in Stafford (ST16 area) yesterday. Does anybody else in Stafford use these forums? Have you seen anything similar? It's very odd, but I'm not convinced it's extra terrestrial in origin. It just seemed so ...real. Well it would wouldn't it. Despite the weirdness of the object though, I'm skeptical. Maybe it does have a plausible explanation.

http://www.hidebehind.com/A1809A

The picture was taken around sunset yesterday. It was a funny day. Cloudy one minute, rainy the next, the clouds clearing...before returning and raining again. The weather got stuck in a loop. But around sunset this amazing affect occurred with (as you can see) strobes of sunshine piercing through a thick cloud across the entire sky. My wife noticed the stationary, very reflective (like blue chrome) object behind the dark grey cloud first and being completely flummoxed about it, told me to grab my camera. As I raised the camera and increased the zoom, the object suddenly started moving at an incredibly fast speed (seemed to be heading in our direction but going upwards) so I just pressed the button several times. We got several pics, but it only appeared on the first one.

The object was definitely cylindrical, but with a strangely contoured convex base. There was a cross of incredibly bright light across the base, but a blinding (bright as the sun) ball of light at the front. (I say 'front' based on its trajectory.) I assume the whole top of the craft was bathed in this 'light' because you could see its aura around the entire thing.

It was gone in an instant...and we were left feeling a bit frightened for a few minutes. I suggested we look up a UFO site on the internet and post it anonymous seeking opinions because we have nothing to lose by doing so.

You have snapped an extraordinary photograph. What this is, I don't have a clue right now, but I am going to do some research and send it to some photo experts.
I will also post it on the Casebook tomorrow morning, and solicit opinion on it. I will try to get them to post here, but they will more than likely respond to me personally. If so, I will post the remarks here.

thanks, and good show!

Thanks B J! smiley

I look forward to reading their thoughts (if any). As soon as we realised the object had been successfully photographed, we scratched our heads about what to do. Should such sightings be reported to anybody at an official level? I'm not sure we'd go that far at this stage due to personal concerns, but it just seemed odd not to have any obvious options.

I forgot to mention that the line of light running horizontally across the object appears more like three fine lines in the photo but I put that down to the direction in which it was moving (blur due to movement).

The line of light running from front to back really gave a good impression of the contour of the underneath...which, although convex, wasn't a perfect curve. No rotation or anything like that either.

Anyway - thanks again. smiley

Just by reporting it here today, it will automatically be reporting itself throughout the UK and be read by ufologists over there with great interest.

The UK has the equivelent to the Freedom of Information Act that we have that was opened to your public some time back. Whether or not they're still taking UFO sightings reports I'm not real sure. Over the days all of those questions will automatically be answered. You'll see from the posts.

I find it very quaint that the name of your city means "landing place". grin

Again, the shot of that orb is absolutely beautiful. I woke to this picture this morning - first thing I saw. I went WOE! WOW! Didn't even need my coffee after that.

hi bj , thanks ato , if it is real it is an ethrian being not a ship they have the power to change themselves into what looks like a ship or craft simalar to an energy field or vortex. I will explain much better later any way good post,laughing policeman.IT is as well an agreeable being. cool

So that explains it. The aliens stole the UK summer! grin

On a serious note, that's an absolutely gorgeous picture and not just for the ufo.

I'm from the UK too. I've never seen a ufo in person, but am an absolute believer based upon what I think is reasonable logic.

Looking at the picture I guess it could be possible to write this off as a fortuitous cloud formation, but with your decription of what actually happened this is no longer an option. The only possible natural thing that I think it could be is what is known as "ball lightning". The problem with this idea is that I can't find any pictures of "ball lightning" that look anything like the object in your picture, on the other hand very little is known about "ball lightning". There are other atmospheric oddities known as "red sprites" and "blue jets" but these look even less like what you have, and are seen much higher in the atmosphere.

Anyway regardless of all this waffle on natural phenomena, your description of a cylinder with a contoured base sounds far from natural!

In the interim, visit the following website in order to see the possibilities. The website has over 35,000 sightings all organized as if by spreadsheet. Very nice and simple to manuver in.

A great majority of sightings more recently have been orbs (lights) or spheres, so follow the column that defines "shape" and click into those. In particular, yours will be defined as light, white light, sphere, etc., so you can dismiss yellow, trianglular, cigar, etc.

http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/ndxevent.html

Here is one example in particular that I just read.

Occurred : 6/11/2007 16:00 (Entered as : 06/11/07 16:00)
Reported: 6/10/2007 11:11:10 PM 23:11
Posted: 6/12/2007
Location: Middleton, WI
Shape: Sphere
Duration:60-90 seconds
Orb over central Wisconsin

While sunbathing I observed an orb like object traveling at an incredible rate of speed in the sky above. It had a dark - metallic look to it, and appeared to be extremely high in the atmosphere. It moved in a perfect straight line across the sky, when it was towards the middle of the horizon, it looped around and made a small , perfect, circular motion and then continued on its normal flight path.

For the elevation it was at, it had to have been far faster than any aircraft, however, it wasn't so fast that it was a blur. It cleared the entire horizon in about 60-90 seconds. There was no blinking or flashing, no sounds, and no exhaust. The sky was perfectly clear so I could observe it very well. Also, although it was circular, when it was directly above my view, I notice it did have slightly contoured edges. Kind of like a more compact, and curved boomerang, however, the "wings" or triangualr shape was very subtle and could only be observed when it was directly overhead.

It's a pity the metadata of the photograph was deleted (by you or by the website you used to load it). Metadatas are very valuable to make one's opinion about a UFO story.

There is a report on Mufon today from the same area with what looks like a similar object:-



i was driving to hixon near stafford and had just passed colwich i think when i saw this really bright 'disc' with thousands of spikes lit in blinding white light shooting out the top of it (spread out like a flowers petals!) in a field a few miles ahead. stunned! by what it could be i really looked hard and it started to rise so that i couldn't see the spikes anymore and there was like a disc in the middle with a sort of upside down dome beneath. it seemed to have lights (like windows on a skyscraper but not sure) but what was obvious was this piercing light on the underneath in the shape of a huge '+' sign on the computer keyboard. it ran over the shape making it easy to figure out and you could see that the dome shape sort of dropped down into a spike (like those on top!) which was glowing like molten metal at a forge!

anyhows i switched on the camera as the thing started to rise thinking i'd got to get a pic but int he seconds it took to get ready the damn flying thing had got raelly high and could hardly be seen no more but it did appear on the picture above the clouds in the middle.

i drove on a bit scared like, but another (more earthly! lol)_ weird thing happened when i stopped at the petrol station for a can of pop because my throat was dry. on the way out these two blokes in pinstripes suits are like "ay mate did you see that weird thing in the sky when you were driving up that road" and i'm like taken aback because there were no cars behind me and i'm sure i'd hav enoticed the fancy Audi they'd got out of on the garage forecourt. so i'm like, "yeah, lol, what do you think it was," and one of them grabs my arm, and jokes "talk about thing out there and ppl will think you're crazy" but it was real sinister cuz of how he gripped me arm and the other one stared at me. and i'm like "no, lol i don't know what it was anyway" and get out of there.

when i gets home and tell my family they're like "yeah right" lol but then i show them the picture and they know i'm not being daft. my kid brother then says i should post the picture to here in case anything happens to the one i've got we can always say well it's still there and ppl would notice if it was suddenly gone one day!!

I posted the report today, and did a close up enhancement on the object? or whatever?

Yes it does - looks identical. You have a date on that one?

Hey guys

Thought i would back these guys up. I live in Stafford about 3 miles from the town centre and the weather on the 3rd was madness... never seen a sky like it.. Sadly I didnt see the object.. but for 2 sitings to be seen in a small town on the same day is strange and both reports show the same object..

Very impressive photograph! Remarkable how close the object was to show up that size on a Fuji A201 without optical zoom--very fortunate (and rare) indeed.

The bottom portion of the object we see appears to be slightly convex, as mentioned above. The top of the object could be any shape, but my best guess would be that the object is a disc, based on other pictures and descriptions of similar objects. The object doesn't appear to be a sphere due to the fact that the outline of the object is ovoid and not circular.

Of particular interest is the white, semi-opaque material outlining the object that's most pronounced in the in the upper left quadrant. It also forms a concentric, broken ring inside the edge of the object. This is sometimes theorized as ionized air produced from high voltage along the surface of the object, meaning the surface is likely metallic or at least capable of conducting electrical current. The US Air Force has used a similar, documented technology to reduce drag (to produce greater speed, better power efficiency, and to reduce heat on surfaces caused from friction as the aircraft moves through the air molecules at great speed), and it is also theorized that this technology might render the aircraft invisible from contemporary radar reports. This ionized field is likely what is responsible for certain light phenomena (glowing objects) associated with UFOs seen in the darkness, though in the daytime it often appears to be white and helps daylight objects blend in with clouds as well by providing low contrast to the sky and clouds. Often this ionized field covers the entire visible surface of object, making it impossible to see the true shape and surface of the object.

In my opinion, the object in the photograph has not been digitally rendered or altered, and it is a "trufo", and a very good photograph of one at that, though it's origin, as usual, can't be determined merely from the photograph. smiley
