    Hi
    I have only joined the forum to ask for assistance with the attached photo.To save me having to tell the story again I have posted a link to a local Liverpool discussion forum website that I joined to try and find other witnesses.I discuss the events that led up to taking this photo in detail there.

    I am only a point and click guy.
    Our sighting lasted 10 minutes and I had enough time to calm down and focus on what I was doing to some degree.I must admit that taking the photos was secondary to watching as this was a once in a life time sighting.This is my main photo. There were that many huge red lights flying overhead that I waited untill there were about a dozen in the frame before taking this shot.The other couple of shots I took were of individual lights that were the bigest as they came over but they are even more vague than this shot.I can post those as well if anyone is interested.

    1 The photo is of REAL objects and not typical common camera artifact orbs that I have seen.
    2 They were BRIGHT RED not blue.
    3 The lights that look in front of the trees and bushes WERE coming from behind possibly from the higher things themselves (I dont want to use the word "beam" but it is possible that is what was happening as the lights were so bright they did seem to sparkle light all over the place.
    4 This photo was taken when there were about a dozen lights in the sky - all about the size of a ping pong ball at arms length.

    What we witnessed was truly amazing and I thought I had the pictures of the century !! - Instead I got this garbage.

    Can anyone help enhance or offer an explanation as to why my photos look like this rather than what we saw.

    I have taken both daytime photo from the same location for ref. and also one last night to try and get the same kind of effects but they just look normal.If you request I can post any other pics you require.

    The sighting was as real as they get and this pic should show more.What I have got is not what I was looking at.

    My 17r old son (who I went and woke up ) stood and watched from the front bedroom whilst I went downstairs for the camera.I then went outside into the back garden to watch and take the photos - bollock naked I might add !!! After taking a couple of what I thought were difinitive shots I went back to my son and we watched them coming overhead for another 5 mins.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just realised I cant post attachments here so the link below will have to do.

    If you view just the photo shown on the website you will not see what I am talking about and dismiss them as basic orb artifacts - you need to see the full photos or at least read through the thread a bit for further images that I have enlarged.

    Link to a local website were I report in a bit more detail PLUS the photos.There is a link on my post there to download better photos. http://www.yoliverpool.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7563

    Night shots of the sky NEVER work with the flash turned on. Flash only covers a very short distance. What was required was an adjustable camera set with a high ISO number such as 800 or 1600, a zoom lens out to 200mm or greater and a tripod. Even with all that, it would be a tough shot considering movement and low light.

    couldn't be better said...

    my personal opinion about this matter is that there must be a real explanation of what happened, personally I dont believe in UFO and a lot of stories have been invented on sightings like this one, not saying that its a lie, but there must be something else going on... I mean, its like area 51, for decades there was people talking about alien experimentation there and it was just an aeronautical development project where a lot of "weird looking aircrafts" where designed

    Thanks for yr replies.

    As to what they are its anybodies guess and I'll leave discussions as to what ufo's are to people that are into that kind of thing but these ARE a few of about 100 such things that flew overhead in a 10 minute time span .I have joined your comunity to just see if anyone can help in getting more from what I have captured because these ARE real photographs of what people have been seeing all around the world for the last few years or longer and not a misidentification of anything.I fly large model aircraft and my son is learning to fly so we are very much aware of what is in the skies above us.

    I would just like to know if more detail can be got from what I have.

    Thanks

    If this is just dust then what happened to the dozen or so huge red lights ( like bright red suns and about the size of an orange at arms length ) that should be in the picture ? I was not taking pictures of some spurious little red things - these were BIG and spectacular.

    As basic as this camera is I cant imagine that it could not have caught anything ! These things in my photo are were the lights were when I took the shot - I was looking at them !

    I'll test my camera tonight by taking a photo out the front of a street lamp and see if that comes out - the lights themselves were MUCH brighter than that anyway so if it captures that kind of light then I'll know.

    Somebody has sent me a picture they took from the other side of the city and that shows one of the red lights over my area and in his photo the red colour is correct although to far off to see any detail.

    Is there such a thing as light on a frequancy that is visable to the human eye as red that cannot be caught properly on a digital camera ?

    Thanks

    No.

    The visible spectrum is the visible spectrum. That's it. If you saw it, your camera would have seen SOMETHING. It might not have captured it accurately, or it might be OOF, but it would be there.

    I played with the photo and there's nothing there besides some dust on a lens or sensor.

    looks like central flash reflections on dust or water droplets (in the air).

    Last year we even had such examples in indoor shots.
