Post by ykchia »

Hi folks:

After so many hundreds hours of video - a Sprite finally 'wandered' into my FOV.

Hi,
Interesting.... How long does the "Sprite" appear in the video?? May be you can show us the whole clip??

Other possible explanation of the cause of the "Sprite"?? Such as electrical interference or may be dust particle in the air reflected by some light??

Have a nice day.

PS: Thread will be move to coffee corner.... :P :P

Hi folks:

Thanks...

I just added the video in http://www.ykchia.com/nov.htm

This is a single frame event - so fast that there are no visible precausor leading to it. ( Unless i have a high speed and low sensitve ccd...)
They do look like humaniods in space suit...? Dont they?
