1. A series of bright flashes below Polaris in the northern sky recorded during the 2016 ET Lets Talk Contact Retreat near Mt Shasta.

  2. I shot this video of the Geminids meteor shower on December 13/14 through the sliding glass door to my back porch. Two extra layers of glass reduce the quality of the video somewhat, but it beats freezing! There's also a simple greeting from a friend who dropped by.

  3. This outing started with an exciting interactive flashing sequence that I missed the start of. I did quite a bit of investigation and recorded a brilliant flare from a satellite called Helios 1B before figuring out that none of the satellites on the Heavens Above schedule were anywhere near this object.

    Most of the rest of the recording is alleged satellite type objects. There were numerous streaks and flashes during the outing, but they were not for the benefit of the camera.

    Recorded in HD using a Panasonic HDC-TM700 camcorder in 1080/60p mode with an ATN NVM14-3A night vision monocular and 1x lense. Edited using Sony Vegas Studio HD Platinum 10.0.

  4. This video shows a conventional satellite flare for the satellite Helios 1B. This is provided for comparison to the object in Double Flash which was recorded on October 9, 2010. I misconstrued the recording time and thought that object might possibly be Helios 1B. So, I looked in the scheduled on Heavens-Above and found that Helios 1B would be visible on October 14. I went out that night and made this recording. Note that Helios 1B slowly brightens and dims and then brightens again before the flare. Even the flare has a relatively slow onset and decay compared to the bright flashes in Double Flash which are on the order of 1/30 of a second. So, the object recorded in Double Flash was NOT Helios 1B, and in fact is not a good match for any satellite in the Heavens-Above schedule for October 9th.

  5. This video was taken October 9th, 2010 during a Central Indiana CSETI Working Group outing. This is one of three objects we saw moving at roughly satellite speed but doing things satellites don't do. A second video will include all three objects, but this is the most active and exciting one.

    The video was taken with an ATN NVM-14 night vision monocular, tube class 3A, mounted on a Panasonic HDC-TM700 Camcorder shooting in 1080/60p mode. Editing was done with Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD 10.

    The original source file for this video is available for download for those who would like to do some analysis. Serious investigators only please. Send me a message on vimeo stating your qualifications with references (e.g., your website) and I will send you a link.
