    Default UFO footage? Filmed at my farm on January 6, 2019

    On January 6th at 4:48 pm at our farm, my husband captured the attached footage on his DJI Mavic Air Drone. It is definitely a UFO (true definition, not referring to Aliens necessarily)


    Our farmland terminates on a ridge. It is hilly and windy here. This particular day happened to be perfectly still so he (husband) wanted to take advantage and get some drone footage of our property. We have cropped identifiers such as our barndo, which would be slightly right to the footage (and because we are in the middle of some huge messy projects that don’t look very pretty from the air). The drone is hovering facing E/SE. This was taken at 4:48 pm. This object was filmed at 30 frames per second and the object is only visible in six frames. The object is on the screen for less than half of one second. Perhaps someone more proficient in math that I can ascertain the object’s speed? Whatever it is? It was ridiculously fast. Just eyeballing it, it appears to be flying in excess of 200 mph? Or not. Not sure. My husband did not notice this object on the controller as he was at least 400 feet from the airborne drone using a small controller. The audio was on and this object made no noise.

    Before wasting anyone’s time here, I wanted to make sure that there is no other explanation for this. I have searched for drones capable of this and the only thing that comes close in resemblance is a paper airplane drone. But it would appear that those drones are not capable of high speed flight. I googled the fastest drone which is reported to be less than 200 mph and they did not resemble the object at all.
    My husband believes that he observed this twice when he was out using his drone (peripheral vision).

    I asked him why he didn’t mention it and he said that he wasn’t sure it was anything at the time, but when he did observe it, it was flying more slowly over a tree line at the end of a plateau that overlooks a creek behind our barndo. He only saw it for a second and assumed it was a piece of debris.

    I even did research to determine whether this could be some camera effect with this particular drone. Couldn’t find anything, but I did find some Youtube video of something similar in mid Wales wherein it was attributed to Aliens (not willing to go there yet). Also looked at the ‘Drones for Dummies’ webpage to see if this could occur with Radio frequency, etc. There was an interesting drawing that illustrated the lift that was very geometric, but nothing that could explain this.

    Any opinions appreciated. The fact that this has occurred more than once seems to suggest that it is definitely related to drone use (although husband contends that he doesn’t go around looking up unless he is using the drone).

    Thanks for your time in reading!

    Ok, new update. Apparently, this platform does not support MP4, so I am sending a photo instead. What a shame! If anyone can figure out how to get this one second video loaded, please let me know. Thanks!Click image for larger version

    Done:
    It's a small white object, moving super-fast. It first appears at the top of the screen at 0:01.50, and disappears off the bottom of the screen 1/5 of a second later at 0:01.71. (The entire video is 0:02.16 long.)

    In order to see it at all, you have to step through the 2 second video frame by frame.

    It doesn't appear to be an artifact, as its distinct 3D shape (see below) and speed are consistent.

    Here are enlarged (unenhanced) screenshots from the last three frames it was on the screen:







    And here are those same images, now enhanced.







    And in those (specially the first), you can clearly make out the shape. The cross-section looks like someone's very rough white cardboard model of Darth Vader's shuttle craft in Star Wars.



    My guess of the distance it traveled in that 1/5 of a second is about 300 ft. (@Ari, maybe you could measure it on the ground, even via Google Earth or Google maps?)

    That'd mean that it was traveling at 1500 ft/second, which is about 1000 mph. Even if the distance was only 100 ft (and I'm sure it's not), it'd be going at about 350 mph.

    What that means is that it's NOT an object blown by the wind, like a large paper bag. (Besides, you said it was a particularly still day.)

    Very interesting, for sure.

    Thank you so much Bill! I couldn’t help but notice that the top “fin”, for lacking better description, appears to be semi-transparent. I’ll try to figure out what distance it traveled from where it appears in the frame, but I’ll have to go to another farm to get that info. It started quite far away. Again thank you! Little bit freaked out about it to be honest. Hubby didn’t notice this until yesterday when he was loading another video.

    Yes... all three 'fins' might be equally semi-transparent, actually, as when we look to the left of the 'top fin', we're actually seeing the two of them together, one behind the other (most of the way). Combined, that'd make them look more opaque.

    Very interesting, and the object was moving very fast.
    I had to replay it over several times, but it does look like some sort
    of craft (metallic) to me.

    We have estimated (from our original clip that shows our barndo - 50 feet long) that the ground distance is 500-550 feet from where the object appears in the clip to where it leaves the clip. Yikes! And without knowing how far from the camera the object was (because cache map info was off) - we can only estimate, based upon other identifiers in the shot (and this is a rough guess) the object seems to be around 18"-24" long, assuming that it is just above the electrical lines. Husband is going to send the drone back up tomorrow with more advanced settings to confirm.

    I got no potentially practical explanation for that, It sure doesn't look like an insect or a bird ... interesting.

    So... we’re definitely freaking out here now. We’ve gone back through footage dating back to October (drone was purchased as a 50th birthday gift for husband). So far, there are three more incidents recorded identical to the first. In one video, there are two of these objects appearing in opposite directions simultaneously. We’re trying to get good clean clips. Some of our footage is a little fuzzy. Will email to Bill when finished. It would appear that these things are everywhere. We share a property line with an old church and graveyard dating to the late 1700s. Could this be something more supernatural in nature? Probably not. Appears mechanical (ish). We’ve also recorded footage in the city- no ufos in clips.

    I almost wonder if only one surface of the three seemingly solid sides is actually solid, the center piece, and the two sides merely arms holding blades that give the illusion that they're solid white? As it moves quickly it may look like a transparent sheet, or "Wing?" When Bill froze that last image it almost looked like a white drone that had four "Arms on each corner.. and a more solid upright stabilizing fin/body? I dunno but if you fould more this is very disturbing. Where was this taken? (State)?

    Yikes indeed!

    That's 2000—2500 feet per second, which is 1350—1700 mph. Which is Mach 1.75—2.25, or +/- twice the speed of sound.

    Here is a marked up (badly) photograph from 10-21-18. I am going to email Bill two MP4 clips for upload.

    Is there any way that these objects could be stray bullets?



    * Note from Bill: this image is quite big, so right-clicking and viewing it independently will make it much larger.

    Okay, here's one:
    This one is from a totally different angle, further away, and it's 0:09.10 seconds long.

    The white object is traveling from left to right and (for me) first seems to appear at 0:01.90 seconds, 2/3 the way down the video screen from the top, and a little to the left. It's against the trees to the right of the dirt road.

    Then it shoots off in a straight line directly to the right, becoming more visible as it goes... I think because the thing is blurred and therefore slightly elongated as it's captured in each frame, and it appears to be accelerating. It's definitely covering more of the apparent distance in each frame, but there might be a distortion affect if the lens is slightly fish-eye.

    That last frame in which it's visible is at 0:04.23. So in 2.33 seconds, it covers whatever this distance is.



    If the width of the dirt road is 10 feet, I'd estimate the trajectory as about 40x that, = 400 feet. (Might be 500... Ari will know.)

    Assuming just 400, then this time it's 'only' traveling at 170 feet per second (its average speed, if it's accelerating), which is 115 mph. So this time, it was just moseying along.

    475 feet. The gravel road is more like 8 feet (land here eats gravel). So does anyone have any theories?

    Not a bird. Not a bullet. Not a recreational drone or a model plane, or a loose kite or anything blown by the wind... way too fast for that.

    Not a meteorological phenomenon. Not a camera artifact. Its shape is constant (i.e. it's rigid), and doesn't appear to be anything animate or living.

    And it does seem to be accelerating in the second video, posted just above. That implies an inbuilt power source. The straight-line trajectory suggests intelligent direction. (Even more so if it turned round and came back!)

    What that means is that it's a structured, intelligently designed device. It seems small (it'd be really useful to estimate its size), and I'd roughly guess it was about 2-3 feet long. If the width of the dirt road is 8 feet, it seems less than half that.

    So it's not a piloted craft. The only remaining possibility is has to be a small drone of some kind, but a highly sophisticated one.

    I'm just channeling Sherlock Holmes here, applying logic as best I can. Once you eliminate the impossible.... etc etc.

    Another observation: (But I'd welcome other views!)

    In the second video posted above, where I described where and when in the video I could first see it personally, it really does just seem to appear suddenly at the start of its trajectory. (And from that point it does seem to start slowly, then speeds up in each frame that follows.)

    So — either it's just arrived there (as if entering through a portal), or it was hiding in the trees before it set off on its straight-line path.
