Want to photograph UFOs?
from the January 2009 Star Beacon
By Christine Dickey
been a UFO researcher since 1980. In fact, Ann Ulrich Miller and I
shared a spectacular sighting in 1984 at the ranch of Pat McGuire
near Laramie, Wyo. There was a thunderstorm and UFOs were zipping
in and out of the clouds and many, many ball lightning phenomena
had a UFO land on Highway 80 eastbound from Rawlins, Wyo., on the
way to Laramie on July 2, 1980 at around 11:30 pm. The whole event
lasted only several minutes, but there were two-and-one-half hours
of missing time involved.
this year I became MUFON State Section Director for Pinal County,
Ariz. One of my assignments took me to the home of a lady in the
Needles district in Mohave Valley, Ariz. She had photographed
several UFOs. I interviewed this lady by telephone and I really
enjoyed our talk together.
I was on my way to California for an appointment and told her I
would see her on the way back into Arizona. I went by way of
Highway 40 out of California and when we got close to the Needles
district, I decided I wanted to go to Laughlin instead and play
slots. So I turned off the highway and was about four miles past
Hwy 40 when I got the overwhelming sense that I needed to stop and
couldnít fight it. I told my husband, who was with me, that I
needed to call her. So I pulled off the highway and made the call.
I turned around and headed for her residence. She then told me
that she could sense when UFOs were around and that she would pick
up her camera and just start taking photos in the direction she
stunned to see that she had captured several UFOs on camera, both
in the day as well as at night. We had such a good time talking
that she invited my husband and I to stay the evening, which we
did, and we have been good friends ever since. I told her that I,
too, get the sense when they are around, but I never thought to
just start snapping photos.
home about the 6th of September this year and on the 10th of
September a thunderstorm was building all day. I could sense that
they were around again, and so at 11:34 am I photographed a
thunderhead and, sure enough, got a UFO above the cloud.
that evening, around 8:30 pm, I got the feeling again and went out
to take photos, even though it was flashing lightning and
thundering heavily. I took several photographs and got the feeling
to try and capture the lightning as it struck. Finally I did get a
in and downloaded the photos on my computer. I was stunned to see
several UFOs in the thundercloud and one which was especially
close ó even had visible windows in it. We eventually enlarged the
windows and got a face looking out and almost smiling. He is
talking into a microphone, which is part of a communications port.
He has a small beard, mustache and blond hair. He is quite
handsome, in fact.
have been told that it is impossible to get this kind of detail
from a digital camera, but I am here to tell you that you can.
Recently my friend from Mohave Valley took photos of Jupiter and
Venus. When we enlarged Jupiter, we got the red spot and red
markings on Jupiter! Now Jupiter is over 500 million miles from
Earth, and no telescope was used in getting this photo!
the kind of photos I am talking about, you need a digital camera
that will take night photos. You also will need the program
Photofiltre, which is a free download from the Internet.
you have your photos in Windows, lighten your photo so you can
make out any detail that may be highlighted. Next, drag your photo
to Photofiltre and copy and crop the item you want enlarged. Then
exit and do not save yet. Go back to the photo and drag it back to
Photofiltre. Paste your item for enlargement next to the original
object. Then take your cursor arrow and start expanding the lines
around the pasted object until you have a much larger image.
you can play with brighten and contrast to bring out the detail of
your subject. Keep playing with this until you get more familiar
with the program. It took me almost two months to figure out the
different techniques, but this should help you at least become
familiar with the program.
of you have specific questions about this program or if you need
help with a particular project, send your questions to Ann and I
will try and answer them as they come up. I am not an expert, but
I am getting sensational photos. Also, there is a book by Robert
Stanley, Close Encounters on Capitol Hill. This book talks about
the same kind of photos of UFOs that I am getting. His Web site is
http://unicusmagazine.com. His books can be ordered from that
site. Happy UFO Hunting!
