Apparent Three Dimensional Object Captured on Camera.
You may be aware of the website Coasttocoastam.com
which is the home of the radio show featuring George Noory.
CoasttocoastAM encourage their audience members to submit
there own photographs of things that could be of interest
to the Paranormal community. One of our eagle-eyed investigators
noticed two images submitted some 6 months apart yet showing
very similar unidentified flying objects.
We decided an investigation was warranted
to try to explain what these strange "Flying Squiggles"
actually are. Our findings are published here for you to read
and we feel they are of great importance to the paranormal
investigation community for reasons that will become apparent
as you read on.
This is the first image submitted to CoasttocoastAM

HERE TO SEE THE ORIGINAL
"I noticed something out the window with a glow
and it was unlike anything I have ever seen."
was not in sight when taking the picture and when seen
on the computer and enlarged looked like a meteor."
With some photographic investigation
and recreation of the anomalies ourselves we have discovered
that the squiggles are caused by small objects caught on camera
while it is in Night mode or even if it just has the flash
To understand how the squiggle effect is
caused you have to understand that on Night Mode (or with
the flash turned off) a digital camera will leave its shutter
open longer so that it can capture what available light there
is. Without a tripod or remote control operation the slightest
movement on the camera can cause blurring or jogging. You
may think that you are holding the camera steady but breathing,
the pressure of pressing the button and even your own heartbeat
are enough to jog the camera and cause the squiggle effect.
The observed squiggling effect of digital cameras in our research
increased proportionately to the amount of zoom being used
to take the photograph and the brightness of the object relative
to it's surroundings.
Here we have taken some picture's at night time of the planet
Venus (the most likely cause of many night time light anomalies):-
Now it may appear
that we were moving the camera around erratically, but in
fact we were not, the camera is being held as steady as possible.
We even took a shot of the moon to show just how much the
photograph is distorted.
To be able to take
photographs at night / dusk you need to set up your camera
on a tripod and if possible use a timer or remote control
to avoid the movement caused by contact with your hand. Below
is Venus and the Moon taken on the same night as the images
above but using a tripod and timer (the dark line on the moon
is part of a tree).
The other image submitted to Coast To Coast AM by Ashwin was
taken at what appears to be dusk rather than night, but the
effect is the same. The object seems to be metallic and perhaps
a plane or a balloon. We can analyze the image and take the
information we need to show what type of object created this
squiggle. We can't fully decide what this spherical object
is, but we can show what it really looks like.
DIGITAL CAMERAS ARE AN EXCELLENT
PARANORMAL RESEARCH TOOL
With the reduction in
cost of good quality digital cameras, these perfect paranormal
research tools are finding their way into virtually every
home. They give you the ability to capture your paranormal
phenomena (UFOS, ORBS, ASTRAL BEINGS) as still images
or even as short video clips. STAY ALERT. Keep your battery
fully charged and your camera with you at all times.
We feel that in this digital
age with recording equipment so readily available more and
more paranormal events will be captured and presented for
our scrutiny. This means that we will be asked to explain
away many things that we cannot. It is these images and recordings
that will be of interest as they may hold the key to a better
understanding of the world we live in.
