The object made no audible sound, appeared to stall over the house
OCEAN SHORES Ali Nicolls and William Puckett set up two cameras to video the eastern sky on June 14, 2009 about 25 degrees above the horizon. Two infrared cameras were set up and footage was recorded on DVD for each camera. The camera containing this footage was an IGEN NV 20/20 night viewer scope with video output from 10:27 to 10:31 PM.
The camera is sensitive in the visual and near infrared. The spectral sensitivity ranges from about 400 microns to 1,000 microns. Visible light is between 400 and 700 microns. The camera was set to capture footage at 15 frames/second (as opposed to the normal 30 frames/second) so that more ambient light could be captured. The other camera was a FLIR thermographics B2 infrared camera with video output. This camera has a spectral sensitivity in the “far” infrared from about 6,500 to 13,000 microns. The image was not visible to the naked eye at any time. When the light showed up we first thought that it was a bright planet because it was moving so slow. However, once we saw that it was moving I went outside but could not see it. The light was moving south and picked up speed when it moved to the right of the field of view.
Ali Nicolls states, the object made no audible sound, appeared to stall over the house, and then moved at a faster pace, pulsated, had a large field of light emitting from it that looked circular. The object was quite close, bright, big, moved at a smooth steady rate, looked self propelled, and was much bigger than those objects observed.
Note: The skies were clear with no satellites and the light was moving into the wind. Only Saturn was visible in the sky but out of the cameras field of view. No tail or flame was seen with the light, thus the light was not a meteor or falling space debris. Perhaps it could be a high altitude military unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). A UAV would be propelled and should have shown up on the FLIR image. Given available data we have no explanation for this video. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest
