It was a bright Sunday afternoon and I was standing outside with my good friend Push.
We were chatting about the latest bullshit, when a passenger plane flew over and we both looked up at it. As it passed we noticed a small bright dot in the blue sky. We both acknowledged it as something out of the ordinary so I ran inside to grab my camera.
I came back outside and the object was still in the same place. It stayed perfectly still for a minute and then suddenly moved in a slow and steady pace West. It seemed at the highest point in the sky at which my eye could recognize detail of that size. I shot the photos with a 12 mega-pixel G-9 Cannon camera. I uploaded the images and increased the dots per square inch to 20,000 to see it close up. I was lucky enough to have a great camera that always shoots clean shots.
So, do I believe the photographs I took are evidence of little green men lurking around the edges of space waiting to abduct their next colonoscopy victim? Perhaps I can look at this from realistic point of view. I have seen many missiles launches over the west coast for as long as I can remember. Twice I’ve captured the MinMan3 Missile Defense system exploding in the atmosphere. It’s launched from Vandenberg air force base, to the north of Los Angeles. I even used those images as reference for some of oil paintings. When most people see the paintings they think they’re extraterrestrial.
The point is…. we really don’t know what’s flying around in our skies. We really have no idea what crazy projects have been developed at taxpayer expense. If I saw the Stealth Bomber blasting over my head, while on liquid at Burning Man I sure as hell would think that something was going on. It’s our imagination that created the boogeyman and it’s our imagination that built the machines that bombed him. Personally I really wish there were little green men, maybe we can learn something totally new. Anyway, I still can say I have seen an Unidentified Flying Object…………
