call for UFO-detecting/tracking software for webcam
someone needs to develop software that uses a webcam to track objects (UFO's) in the sky. leaving a webcam pointed at the sky all night would record a huge amount of video, but it doesn't have to do that. instead, it would only use video input to sense moving objects, and output the data for location, speed and altitude of the object, and take a few cropped hi-resolution snapshots.

the software would be calibrated by pointing the webcam in the right direction, or better yet, lock onto a bright star given the time, elevation, longitude and latitude of the user.

it would require at least 2 people some distance away from each other, at least a few blocks. they would compare their data to triangulate location, speed and altitude. that would be done when they upload their data (which shouldn't be much of an upload) to a website that does the calculating. if there were more than 2 people tracking the same object, then all the better.

the software might even be able to connect to old camcorders, which have a better picture than a webcam. or ccd devices that take a picture as good as a camera but can be left on all the time.

all we need is for somebody to develop the software.

Why not try popular video surveillance software like Nuuo and high resolution day/ night cameras connected - recording starts by movement and you afterwards see easily if something has happened...maybe works maybe not :). ...
