Can anyone explain what these pics show?
a friend's pics | November 03, 2011 | Neil E. Wright

Posted on 11/03/2011 2:26:46 AM PDT by Neil E. Wright

In 2004, a friend took these pictures outside of Jackson, Wyoming. She took the first pic while climbing the side of a hill, and the other 2 from the top of the hill.

Anyone want to venture a guess???? :)

If you click on each image it will open the full size image that I scanned from her pics today. She has the original negatives from the 35mm film she shot the pics with. The images have not been modified in any way.

The first couple look like they could be landing lights of an airplane. The third one, being completely dark, has no context with which to judge.

If the pictures are in sequence, and the objects attitude went from a relatively still hover to a 90 degree accelerated trajectory, I would have to assume it is some kind of highspeed aircraft or spacecraft. As I understand, meteors/meteorites aren’t capable of hovering.

Why couldn’t the object simply made a 90 degree turn?

Wild guess here since I don’t think film photographs the same way as a digital camera does. The first two pictures would be a full moon. The orbs would be moisture droplets.

The third picture is a mystery. Kinda cool though. (Looks as if an orb was late and was in a hurry to catch a plane).

Any clue as to what type of film, exposure or speed was used?

When I venture a guess, will you be able to say whether I’m right or not?

I'd send you over to George Noory and Art Bell, but Noory is in the tank with “9-11 was an inside job” and Bell has become an Obama sympathizer.

I have no idea what is pictured in your photos, but I’m quite sure that George Noory will find time to interview you and your friend some night, right inbetween Evelyn Paglini (The Mystical Blend Witch) and Glynis McCants (The Numbers Lady.)

Heck, with a little luck, you might get immortalized on Richard Hoagland’s website, right up there with the Hyperdimensional Bees.

In the first picture it looks very much like a tree. In the others I have no idea.

I was typing my reply while you were posting and I was (until now) unaware of the leanings you ascribe to those two.

Now, I haven’t listened to their shows in some time. In years past, my drive home from work was always in the wee hours, so I tuned in several times a week.

I have never been impressed with either man as a great intellect, but I’m disappointed to hear they’ve slipped so far off the deep end. In the years past when I heard him, Bell was at least nominally conservative, if a bit whacky.

My Associated Press story about the Air Force cutting 13,500 jobs gets pulled, but these kind of threads are allowed to continue.

I guess I'll post "Dancing With the Stars" clips from now on.

Saw something similar about 10 years ago, still have no idea what the hell it was.

Ball of light (changing colors white to welding arc blue) hung in the sky stationary for about 5 minutes in the southeast and shot to the western horizon like a hauling meteor (maybe 1 second).

Thought it was a Coastguard or Sheriff helicopter with a spotlight at first, but the hauling a** part kind of ruled that out.

Never saw anything like that before or since.

Posting stories from the AP is always dicey. Doesn’t matter what the subject matter is, they’ll get pulled if posting guidelines aren’t met.

Blame the AP.

Do you recall any missing periods of time or the feeling that you had a prostate exam without your recollection?

The Corposant [sp?.] St Elmo's Fire. Ball Lightning.

Common in severe blizzard conditions. Seen it twice in my life. Snowing both times. Likes to crawl slowly down steel cable guy wires and trees...and masts on ships.

My best guess based on experience, and the appearance of what I think is falling snow in the pics.

My guess would be lights of an approaching/landing airplane.

I have flown into Jackson Hole airport several times. The situation there is unique. There is a long narrow valley that the snake river winds through, with high mountains all along it on two sides. Approaching planes have to fly in between the mountains with a very precise path and elevation and then land very quickly.

In the winter (as in this photo) Jackson gets a lot of air traffic in for the ski resorts. So the chances of standing on one of the mountains and getting an approaching plane in your photo would be high. And the plane would actually be relatively close to you as it passes by.

The first picture is of a light behind a tree and some snow. The other pictures are of lights in the sky when it is dark outside.

The moon, a tree and some water vapor reflecting the flash.

The streaky one is probably just an exposure aberration.

“Real orbs” look totally different from those.

Couldn’t be Uranus, that would have a brown streak behind it.

As a digital photo nut [even delving into IR and UV, for kicks] I’ve “photographed” more “orbs” than I can count.

99.9% of the time, it’s dust/moisture/pollen/bugs/whatever.

There’s one ‘friendly’ reddish-orange one that always shows up in the photos I take on “Suicide Ridge” right beside my house.

Have no clue “what” it is but the little bugger’s almost always showing itself somewhere in the area, no matter which camera I’m using.

The stuff that really intrigues me more are the ‘mists’ that pop up in night shoot cemetery photos when the atmospheric conditions simply do not exist for them to occur “naturally”.
