Quote from: Uncle Duke on August 20, 2017, 05:02:59 PMGot around to listening to Peter Davenport's appearance this week with George, turns out a friend and I saw a UFO that was reported to NUFORC by two different people last Saturday night. We were out in a rural park near Yellow Springs, OH (roughly ten miles east of WPAFB) watching the meteor shower, it was around 2245 EST. I noticed a very bright flash almost directly overhead, but I saw no navigation lights one would normally see with an aircraft. The light flashed several times over the next ten minutes or so. The intensity of the flashes varied, with time between flashes variable as well. Whatever it was moved in a random manner, there was no clear path of flight, kinda like a butterfly. There was no sound associated with the object. My friend immediately called up the "SkyGuide" app on his tablet to see if there was a satellite or other space junk in that part of the sky (none), I called up "FlightRadar24" to see what air traffic was in the area. The app did identify a couple high flying commercial jets overhead during this period, but they were easily distinguishable from what were we seeing. We also looked for whatever it was through 8x binoculars (friend) and a first generation NVS (me) but couldn't locate it due to its unpredictable flight path. It eventually just quit strobing.No way to tell the size, speed, or altitude of what we saw, but it did appear to be quite high in the sky. My buddy is a longtime astronomy buff, and I have a very good knowledge of aircraft and their performance characteristics. If I was a betting man, my best guess is we were looking at an electric motor powered drone with a strobe attached being flown by someone looking to hoax those out watching the meteor shower. Who knows?
Quote from: albrecht on August 20, 2017, 09:04:56 PMInteresting. I have no idea how high the various amateur drones can go but I'm sure one could configure with LEDs etc to look pretty cool and perspective is hard in the night sky especially. You and your friend are credible reporters/observers (it wasn't, I presume, the typical- in some cases- "I was coming home from surfing and went out for a smoke on Malibu dude, you know, and looked up and..."You should submit this report to Davenport's site simply for the history and to get it into the record. You could even just cut&paste what you put here. I like Peter Davenport and his stuff and this is a "very interesting" report. As an aside, it is cool, but also, considering these times somewhat troubling, how well those flight apps work. The other day I picked up my brother and fam at the airport and, due to construction temporarily, the 'cell phone waiting lot'' is right near the runway. I could track his plane and watch it land (visually and on the screen) and the app was spot-on. I must say though it brought back good memories of days when you could watch the planes land and some airports even have observation decks where you could have a cup of coffee or a drink and wait, or just watch for fun.
Quote from: Uncle Duke on August 20, 2017, 10:29:50 PMI've contacted Peter requesting information from him. I looked at his "recent reports" section tonight and was surprised to find a good number of sightings quite similar to ours in various parts of the country over the past few weeks. I have a working theory, we'll see if I can get data to flesh it out. I will send a report to NUFORC once I determine if my theory has merit.http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/ndxe201708.html
Quote from: Yorkshire pud on August 21, 2017, 07:37:04 AMI suspect it was a multi copter drone. They can fly surprisingly high and would be effectively silent. And as they have self stabilising gyros installed, their tracking and stationary positions will be rock solid, even with a slight breeze. The radio range is about a mile so the operator could be some distance from you as long as they have line of sight. Just my ten cents worth.

Quote from: Lord Grantham on October 26, 2017, 10:24:40 AMDid you ever come up with a working theory?
Quote from: Uncle Duke on October 26, 2017, 01:03:12 PMYes. I believe many of us have been seeing "Project Loon" balloons. Loon is a project to create a wireless internet system using a series of high altitude (60K+ feet) balloons. There are, at any one time, a number of them aloft at various places around the world. They are equipped, per FAA regulations, with a high intensity strobe visible at a minimum of five miles, and are subject to sudden altitude changes as a form of steering. Flightradar24 actually plots their flight path if you know what you are looking for, and there have been several flying across the US, averaging 4-6 kts. Peter Davenport was quite skeptical when I spoke/corresponded with him about my theory, but apparently he has come around to thinking the idea has merit, at least in some instances. On one of his C2C appearance in early Sept, he specifically mentioned a sighting reported to the NUFORC might have been "one of those high altitude balloons" or words to that effect.Loon balloons have been deployed to Puerto Rico to establish internet connectivity to hurricane damaged areas. I have been meaning to look into UFO reports over PR in the past few weeks, flashing high intensity strobes combined with very limited light pollution could be expected to create reports.

Quote from: Uncle Duke on December 16, 2017, 11:20:51 PMhttps://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/16/us/politics/unidentified-flying-object-navy.htmlWell documented sighting, including radar tracks and pilot eyewitness accounts. If I read the article correctly, infers a USO as well.
Quote from: Walks_At_Night on December 16, 2017, 11:36:51 PMAin't that something? Two things concern me. The pilot appears to be a Detroit Lions fan [I haven't watched an NFL game in several years - life is better being Lions free], what's up with that?. The audio with the video have the WSO and Pilot in the Super Hornet talking like surfers "Dat's a frickin' drone, bro" - maybe that type of talkisn't unusual but I wouldn't think so.
