My personal UFO experiences and photographs

 

As most readers of this website will know, I'm a very keen wildlife photographer: my photographs have appeared widely in print and other media. You can see some of them here: BIRDS OF THE HEATH

At the various talks I give and conferences I attend, I'm often asked whether I've managed to combine the two interests and photograph a UFO. The answer depends on your personal definition: certainly I've captured images of a number of aerial phenomena, not all of which have appeared in these pages. I've decided to post a few of the most interesting below...


The three images above were taken through my 4" astronomical refractor: I was trying to capture the 'Old Moon in the New Moon's Arms' effect. As you can see, there's a curious object to the top right that resembles a Klingon Warship! Here's a close-up:


Here are two strange, high altitude lights photographed from Track 10: they manouvered around before hanging above us for several minutes: they then sped off in opposite directions:

This strange ring-like phenomenon appeared above an event we attended in South Norfolk. The left hand image is unretouched, the others are enhanced using edge detection and colour enhancement software.

Other similar images (and a few simulations) can be found throughout the website. Now bearing in mind I spend a goos part of each walk walking the country lanes and marshes with a camera, it's perhaps surprising how few photos I've managed to take: I see more than I grab an image of!
