Out There

What does Ed Grimsley get on video? This is an excellent UFO video.

Ed Grimsley is the real deal. He has been the subject of a quiet investigation by Unknowncountry staff, and his videos are authentic. They are made using an infrared camera, and show a great deal of unexplainable activity in the night sky. Graded A.

Since this used an IR camera - how sure are the posters that these were not nocturnal animals such as bats or owls? While I am a believer - I find it hard to believe that a simple IR camera is all that is needed for us all to see UFO swarms in our skies.

Perhaps these words will shed some light on the IR camera, and Ed Grimsley issue for You: Ed Grimsley is the real deal.

Read the original source: http://www.unknowncountry.com/out-there/what-does-ed-grimsley-get-video-.... Just in case you didn't notice the opening paragraph.

I would advise anyone watching this, to do so with the sound off, as it is easy to get caught up in the excited atmosphere created by the shouts of the original audience.

There are few things that I would like to say...

Firstly, my immediate impression was that this was amazing footage of some kind of aerial craft effectively showing off, making the kinds of manoeuvres that we would normally attribute to UFOs....

But now the initial elation has worn off, I find myself thinking more clearly about what indeed this could be. I am without doubt that the object of focus is exhibiting intelligence. There is real purpose in the movements it is making...but does this have to be technology? The first poster asked a quite reasonable question whether this could indeed be a bat or an owl, which has made me sit back and study this footage a bit more closely.

What I would say is that there are certain elements of this 'display' that separately look remarkably similar to the kinds of aerobatic displays and normal flight patterns shown by swifts / swallows / bats and birds of prey...

The static 'hovering' from birds of prey, including owls.
The great acceleration from bats, swallows / swifts, and birds of prey when diving.
The fast-paced linear flight, with in-course corrections, which you might see from all of these.

The next point is that when the 'object' is moving in a linear path to the left, the level of light is pulsating. Could this not be the slow flapping of wings, occasionally masking the main heat from the body of a bird (which of course rules out the bats)?

Just a thought.

One last point about this kind of footage… Let us say for a moment that these are aerial craft, with some kind of optical invisibility cloak - why would they only be visible during the night? If they were generating a significant heat signature, could they not also be captured on an infrared camera during the day?

Now to really impress me, show me some day footage simultaneously taken with an infrared camera and a visible light camera...and show me that the object only shows up in the infrared. Then you'd be talking.
