'Invisible' UFOs filmed in infrared

Skywatchers are reporting strange unidentified flying objects that only show up using infrared.

Night vision cameras have been employed in an effort to catch and record these enigmatic objects. One group in Texas known as the Laredo Paranormal Research Society has succeeded in capturing a triangular shaped craft flying overhead with three evenly spaced glowing orbs underneath it. Group founder Ismael Cuellar has claimed that the object was invisible to the naked eye and that the team have ruled out all conventional explanations.

"[We] have ruled out birds, bugs, airplanes, helicopters, and even flying drones by comparing them side by side as a point of reference," he said. Geoscientist Ben McGee, lead field researcher on the National Geographic series "Chasing UFOs" however is unconvinced, he believes that the object is actually a border patrol drone with infrared anti-collision lights.

"You might have thought a defining characteristic of a UFO would be visibility."

Yep they all catch it. One sparky trick I use to check the battery in a remote is hold it to your phone camera (but just watch it, you do not have to take a picture) and push a button on the remote. If the batteries are good you wil see a shining light. If they are bad or the remote is broken, you wil see no change. It is very noticeable. Give it a go. But I would not be ruling out natural phenomena just yet. How ya been pax CCDs pick up near infrared normally. It gives photos a horrible, yellow/orange look so most modern cameras have an IR blocker. Some may even have CCDs that aren't responsi... [More]

I'd like to get one of these modified sony handycams just for this type of purpose. They are very reasonably priced. http://www.sonyxray.com/ I caught some orbs for the first time ever just a couple days ago with my 'new' 10mp coolpix. Pretty cool but I doubt it's infrared capabilities are all that much.

How do digital cameras on our phones capture infrared? human eyes operate within a certain spectrum only, the cameras sometimes extend a little ways further into that spectrum.

Good to see that the high quality of responses is being maintained. Good to see that the high quality of "evidence" is being maintained.

I will be on my best behaviour! I see you're from London, I was there in May, has the insanity started in earnest yet?

I see you're from London, I was there in May, has the insanity started in earnest yet? Its been here for years already... If you mean the Olympics, suffering with the traffic already, but I am really looking forward to it though... Bring on the Games! I will be able to watch the opening ceremony on TV and see the fireworks out of the window (unless the fireworks are all CGI).

CCDs pick up near infrared normally. It gives photos a horrible, yellow/orange look so most modern cameras have an IR blocker. Some may even have CCDs that aren't responsive to infrared - not sure if this is commonplace. If you are willing to risk destroying your camera, you can remove the IR blocker and then put an IR filter over this. This is a favourite of people taking naughty pics of women in bikinis, because they are transparent to this wavelength. If I wanted to see boobies, I would just go to a nudist beach. Anyway, looking outside of the visual spectrum would be a good way to learn so... [More]
