How to Film UFO's Anywhere

Updated on June 26, 2011

UFO videotaped 9/11/2001 after all U.S. air traffic was ordered stopped by the President

By Tony Pratt

I began videotaping UFO's in April 1998 after reading an internet article by John Bro similarly titled "How to videotape UFO's In Your Own Backyard!" A student and I had shared a previous black triangle UFO sighting from 1984 that outside my Tae Kwon Do school in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. This sighting is described in the Close Encounter videos on this page. The technique for videoing is also demonstrated in both video clips. This particular technique for videotaping UFO's is called solar obliteration and explains why so many people have sightings during eclipses where the sun is blacked out. The method is simple. On any clear day without too much cloud cover you can block out the sun using any object such as the side of your house, roof overhang, barn, carport etc. Or, for portability just use a piece of plywood or cardboard. In general you want to try to film close to the sun's corona.

If your camera is not digital you will have to be careful not to film directly into the sun itself since it can do irreparable damage to your equipment. So focus your shots near to the sun's surface without letting it to directly enter thus eliminating any 'sun flare' that happens during the shoot. Most all new camera's are digital and this is not a concern.

Additionally, you will want to zoom all the way out as far as you can. And, I suggest backing off a little from that to let auto focus work better. Only optical zoom matters. Digital zoom is just zooming in on what you have and magnifying it. It is a marketing ploy to sell cameras. Optical zoom is using a telephoto lens that lets you see more of a smaller portion of the sky you are filming. The more optical zoom you have the better. Anything above 100 X is great. Unfortunately, most new cameras have only 10 -20 X.

You can just set up your tripod and let the camera run, then check the footage later to see what you have caught on tape. But, if you want to thoroughly document which objects you can see with the naked eye you will need to stay with the camera and narrate the events as they unfold. You will still miss the majority since at 30 frames per second most are in four frames or less. As you gain experience you will learn to see them with the naked eye and during playback.

It is essential that you have slow motion and frame X frame on your video tape player or digital editing software in order to discover all the shots. It is literally like looking for a needle in a haystack sometimes. But it is also a lot of fun. Some of the objects are only in one frame. And, some are only visible in slow motion appearing vaguely or not at all in any individual frame. Some of the UFO's are cloaked to match the sky but are still clearly detectable. Most dark objects are IFO's i.e. insects, birds etc. They are generally pretty easy to differentiate from what look like extraterrestrial craft on directed flight paths.

Videotaping near the sun's surface is just a good starting point. You can try different variations such as having the sun directly behind you or any part of the sky that is unobstructed. It is a good idea to have a reference point when possible. One of my shots of a rod type UFO (rods aka sky fish are UFO's that swirl around like living entities of some kind) appears in only two frames as it passes behind the contrails of a passing jet aircraft in two frames. I call it the largest rod UFO footage as it is in my estimation approximately 30 times larger than the jet. In contrast the jet requires 104 frames to cross the screen. Many of the UFO debunkers and disinformation agents claim that rods are just insects close to the camera that only appear to pass behind distant objects. I have to disagree.

My journey eventually led to published articles on the Coast to Coast AM website with Art Bell and George Noory and my photo inside a UFO vortex in middle Tennessee that was featured in the March 2000 UFO issue of LIfe magazine. I have a 100% track record of capturing UFO's every time I film. I hope you have as much fun and success as I have.

The UFO phenomena is real. For now I will leave it to you to decide who if anyone is behind the wheel of these supposed ET craft! Happy hunting everyone.
