It’s full of falling stars! But wait a minute. There are even more videos from this same user. Does he waste every night looking at the sky? Does he goes through hundreds of hours of videos searching for meteors? Is this a hoax?
No, he just uses a fantastic piece of software that automates mostly everything: the UFOCaptureV2! It’s joined by the UFOAnalyzer and the UFOOrbit. The whole package automates the process of detecting unusual phenomena in the sky, and even attempts to automatically classify and analyze it.
Check the samples of videos captured by the software: meteors, birds et al and, what I was quite skeptical when I first saw it, even sprites, elves and jets! Of course, it wouldn’t be worth its name if it didn’t also capture UFOs.
The software is free for use for 30 days, and the price is more than worth it, as the developer actively adds features and corrects bugs, being also available in support forums. For less than U$5,000 one would be able to set up a system, and that’s from scratch: the most expensive parts would be the high-sensitivity night camera and associated optics, and the dedicated PC.
I’m completely flabbergasted and excited by this piece of software and its results. This may look like a paid advertising post, but it’s in fact simple candid enthusiasm.
You see, it took science, and those brave real scientists, a lot of effort to even prove and accept that meteors exist – rocks do fall from the sky. Then, sprites, elves and jets were only confirmed scientifically – by accident – less than twenty years ago. It involved special research equipment and even the the Space Shuttle. This is really new, advanced stuff.
But now, you can confirm the existence of these phenomena literally at the comfort of your own home, giving a new meaning to armchair research. Check unusual sky phenomena just like you would check your email.
The resulting data will also make robust physical evidence, as the setup automatically records time, you wouldn’t be changing places much often, and it even automatically tries to estimate various data such as angular sizes from a built in star map system. If several people aim at the same area of the sky, it would make amazing physical evidence. Just like the Japanese are already doing to track meteors, lightning and all.
I’m really excited about it, and plan to promote and setup a system here in Brazil, a hotspot for lightnings and, local ufologists claim, UFOs.
