On November 8th, 2010, television and radio news media announced that a missile of unknown origin had been fired off the California coast near Catalina Island. While the Pentagon denied it was one of theirs, anyone and everyone else who, one would assume, know about such things, ummed and aaaahed stupifyingly. Soon, hapless fingers soon started to point to the Chinese. After a few days of the usual limp wristed investigating by the news media, the incident was soon forgotten, never to be addressed or resolved on any public level, replaced by news of a much more entertaining bent. The public having forgotten the incident probably even sooner than the news media. God forbid anyone would allow their day to be ruined by news of a missile being fired off the coast of California. I mean, really!
Watching the news segment on this missile incident, I was immediately struck by the poor quality of the video (despite being filmed by a professional crew, serendipitously on location). It seemed far too saturated. Too unnaturally orange. The incident occurred around 5pm so one could expect an orange hue maybe, but screen grabs of the video and accompanying imagery taken indicate to me that the video has been "tinkered" with in a major way. I watched the original broadcast of the news segment that went out Tuesday morning and other segments, broadcast later that day. Interestingly, an object that was visible in the early segments had been removed from later ones. This object seems to have been ignored by everyone in the news media (that's a shocker), and doesn't appear to be a conventional type of aircraft or helicopter.
The other revelation was something far stranger, more inexplicable and forces one to risk looking foolish. I discovered there were three objects of concern during this event. Three. So suspend your disbelief for a wee moment and let me explain... Concluding that the general appearance of the video had been tinkered with, I strongly suspected that other elements within the video had also been manipulated. After years of examining NASA's Apollo Image Archive I'm well acquainted with the idea that what the public is shown in imagery may not always reflect the truth. Utilizing Noise Ninja 2.0 and Akvis Noise Buster elements of the imagery started to make their presence felt. To describe, in words, what the event was appearing to turn out to be, would classify me as a certifiable raving loony. So I'll just let Noise Ninja do the talking.
