    Default Has Bigfoot Been Spotted At Yellowstone?

    Tens of thousands of people watch a video from the national park where four upright
    creatures appear behind a group of bison.



    Has bigfoot finally been spotted?


    Four unidentified figures have been captured in a controversial video recorded through a webcam.

    Originally posted to YouTube by Mary Greeley back in December, the footage, which was taken from a webcam overlooking the area near the famous geyser 'Old Faithful', failed to gain attention at the time but has picked up momentum more recently after being featured on a number of news sites and media outlets.



    The video lasts around three-and-a-half minutes and begins by showing a group of buffalo wandering across the snow.

    At around the 2:50 mark however four figures emerge from behind the trees in the background and walk towards the left. One emerges in to a clearing while the others remain mostly hidden.

    The video, which has gained significant attention this week, is being hailed as evidence that the legendary Bigfoot not only exists but that there's more than one and that they travel in groups.

    In all likelihood however the footage probably shows nothing more than a group of tourists taking in the scenery as they head towards the geysers. None of the figures appear particularly anomalous and there is little reason to suggest that they are anything other than ordinary people.

    "Bigfoot sightings are not frequent, but it happens," said Yellowstone National Park spokesman Al Nash. "People say a lot of crazy things about Yellowstone all the time and bigfoot is just one of them."

    You need to check out thinkerthunker's analysis and size comparison of this footage. Bison are indeed huge animals, for those who may have never seen them up close and personal, so I think the size comparison is pretty compelling. Especially when considering the "fourth" suspected bigfoot, who is a head taller than the rest.

    Here is a picture showing how huge a bison is in comparison to a grown man.

    Questions. If it's webcam footage, then why would it stop there? It should continue with footage of the beings.
    Also why did the webcam shift focus to the right in the middle of video? It should be stationary.
    When in doubt, do the next right thing.

    There's a big flaw in his analyzes of the video.

    He seems to be unaware that, the bigger the photographic lens is, the more it compresses perspective.

    By the original video you can say that the photographic equipment uses powerful telephoto lenses, which is the kind of lenses normally used to film things at a distance. Surely this is not a regular amateurish webcam. Probably professional scientific surveillance equipment or maybe even an actual photographic camera, with apparently at least 135 to 160mm lenses judging by the size and distance of the background trees.

    Here's an example of the compressed perspective effect:



    Notice how the 160mm lens, which is a very moderate telephoto lens, apparently brings the background scenario much closer to the front, clearly causing things to appear to be bigger.

    So, when the analyst cuts the humanoid shape from the OP's video and bring it to the front, comparing its size to the buffalo, he's not taking perspective compression in account, which undermines the very foundations of his analyzes.

    Another image to demonstrate the crushed perspective effect:



    So, these could very well be regular men wearing thick black coats which would be perfectly normal since it's snowing and apparently very cold. As far as the video goes, it's impossible to achieve another conclusion without sabotaging the logical process. The correct thing to be done was to go the the same location and try to collect more data.

    mgray the explanation i heard was its a web cam for gysers, so thats where the camera goes to next, and i believe the person moving the camera didnt even see the bigfoots

    Oui,mais à 01:33,dans le fond du paysage,vers le milieu,2 autres ombrages d'êtres,marchent et se dirigent vers la droite,très difficille à voir,mais j'ai remarqué que sa bouge là aussi,donc 6 êtres en visuelle au total,regarder de près votre écran et vous verrez,c'est étrange,...?!!?

    J'invite les gens à observer partout,peut-être il y a d'autres êtres ailleurs que nous n'avons pas remarqué,...??

    Vid as posted by seeker/reader
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRurxAtiLkM
    At vid point 2:25 a comparison of size is made by cutting out the Humanoid figger and placing it next to a Buffalo

    well! why not do it the other way around and so get a nearer comparison and not have to stretch any part of the images!

    So I take one Buffalo that is as far back in the scene as possible, notice to the right on the horizontal line is the clearing where the Humanoids show!
    [IMG][/IMG]

    Then a pic showing the Humanoid
    [IMG][/IMG]

    then transfer it over next to the Humanoid.


    But even this is not a total size comparison because the only image of a Buffalo is still not as far back as the Humanoid figger, so the Humanoid is actually still bigger that my comparison composite. Nearly twice as tall as that Buffalo!

    Interesting ha!

    Interesting. However would this crushed perspective ever make the object appear larger than it actually is? I don't think this would be possible? For example the second can, which is the same physical height as the first can, may appear larger than it did with a smaller lens however it never appears larger than the first can. So in effect it would either appear to be "almost" full size or smaller than it actually is, depending on the lens length. It would never appear larger than it actually is while in the context of other objects.

    Taking that into consideration, the humanoid is still a head taller than the humps on all the bison. That would still make quite a large individual and then considering the fourth "humanoid" that is a head taller then the rest, it would be 2 heads taller than all the humps on the bison.

    Larger/Bigger than it really is, no. Larger/Bigger in relation to something else closer to the lens, yes.

    According to this, an adult American Bison can measure from 1,5 to 2 meters of height.

    So, since we actually don't know the size of those Bison, the size of an average man, let's say 1,70 to 1,85m, would be perfectly compatible, taking perspective compression in account.

    Plus, after a quick research I could see that a lot of people actually go there as tourists to actually watch wild life, like Bison. Those men could very well be tourists in heavy winter coats.

    Just my two cents.

    Yes,but at 01:33,in the bottom of the landscape,towards the middle,two(2) other shades of beings,walk and head to the right,very difficult thing to do,but i noticed that his move there too,so six(6) visual beings in total,look closely at your screen and you will see,it is strange,...!?!?

    I invite people to observe everywhere,maybe are other things,also we have not noticed,...??

    Yep. Now I see them.

    Good catch, Ulyse30! I wouldn't ever have observed that.

    Couldn't they be just regular folks, though?

    They still look to large/tall to be regular people, given the fact that they are that extra distance away!

    They do seem to coincide with the Humanoids as well, doing a round trip, mainly along the tree lines.

    Wish I was near there, I would defiantly go and explore those two areas!

    I like to think this is a real photographic capture of our mysterious friends
