Anybody out there got a camcorder? Try shooting some zoomed in video of bright fluffy clouds. Fill 2/3 of the screen with the clouds and the rest with sky and background features. Keep the clips short (under 2 minutes) and play them back in slow motion if you can. If you can't I can show you how. You will be surprised by what you see. Strange movements in the clouds. Odd things hustling about with no apparent flight plan.
When I notice something in a video. I'll set it to play just that section multiple times in slow motion and full speed. I have some pretty cool ones from a couple days ago. Looking at clouds can be very therapudic. I can't wait to seeing some of your finds. Go get em.
You're joking right? Evolved to live in the sky? These are called BIRDS...
He meant 'live their entire lives in the sky'. Birds come down to the ground occasionally or frequently, but there is speculation about a kind of sky-dwelling creature called a sky-beast (sky whale/sky jellyfish, etc) that spends its entire life in the sky, soaking up sunlight for energy, and camouflaging themselves in the clouds.
Things have changed a bit. I made some program changes that make it easier to show off these Faster Than Sight objects. I now can put LARGE font (48 point) text up on the screen so the viewer is alerted where and what to look for. Then that specific segment plays in slow motion multiple times and again at full speed.Then on to the next one. These "text - video" groupings can be grouped and played randomly.
The video is a screen reshoot that is transferred to flash so the original is much much better. The video notes explain where to get the original files at archive.org along with the non-linear text control file as well as the super app to play it. If you hook your PC up to a large screen TV you will be surprised at what you see. Of course the Explain-It-Aways will always be negative. But with this as a simple template. You can do your own FTS hunts. Please let me know of your captures. You will get them.
