UFO over Canberra?

By johnboy - 5 April 2012 40

The DBKP website is very excited by video purportedly shot over Canberra yesterday of what looks like a blimp overhauling a jet airliner.

It’s been posted to YouTube with this note:

An unidentified flying object was caught on camera from an airplane near Canberra, Australia on April 04, 2012, filmed by passenger Thomas Roth. The UFO was flying very fast below the Aircraft. It doesn’t look like a normal plane or helicopter. What do you think about it?

Hmm… Looks a bit like the one that I saw over Lake BG some 10 years ago.

Actually, I didn’t SEE it. I took a photo of the lazy hot air balloons floating over the lake and only several days later did I realise what I’d captured on my digital camera.

At first I thought it was just the reflection of a light source from within my hotel room, at Crowne Plaza, since my hands and the camera were also captured in the photo due to the reflection by the large glass window.

But, because the object was shown in the photo as being DIAGONAL, I realise that it couldn’t have been a reflection as there was no source of light within the room that was DIAGONAL to make such distinct and clear reflection. My hotel room was minimal in decor, hence the only source of light was the down lights, which is shown in the photo as a white oval shape. And there were no mirrors present in the room.

Here’s the photo.
I do have a 2400×1800 pixel version of the raw, in case anyone is interested.

Frankly, all I can say is “Where the hell did that white blob come from??”. The camera I used back then never showed that white blob in any photos taken after that so… Can’t explain.

So ridiculously easy to add the “UFO” to that clip

Why did he have his phone on during the flight?

Yes I know about “Flight Mode” but still!

But still …, what? There is no correlation that cell phones on flights cause any problems what so ever. Additionally, Australia does not even have any regulation that prohibits the usage of cell phones on flights: http://www.amta.org.au/pages/Mobile.Phones.and.Aircraft

There are zero, zip, nill, nudda, no issues with a cell phone being used on a flight. The only precaution Australian airlines take is that the mobile is to be turned off during take off and landing.

Sadly, just a reflection from the Perspex window – the umpteenth time that has fooled someone.

You can have electronics on while cruising. Take off and landing, that’s switch off time.

maybe they were after fleeing from a meeting with the crazy man Bob Brown.

I’ve gotta be more careful where I fly my R/C Star Destroyer…

What? Someone’s seen a UFO without being prompted by Today Tonight doing a story about the subject?

This is a breakthrough.
