Re: Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
I saw the same thing at 7:45pm. But I am in Massachusetts near the New Hamphire border. It was in the south sky. It looked like a flashlight pointing down from the sky with a smokey fog below it.The light moved from left to right as if someone was swinging the light from side to side before it faded.
 Quoting: Kathie 775065

That's exactly what we saw from Portland, Maine. We're 1 mile off the coast on the marsh. It looked like it was right over the marsh. I thought it was a star or comet that blew up. Almost looked like those pictures when people claim they've seen the virgin Mary then it was just smoke and gone....4 of us saw it and when my husband went to take a photo it was gone!

Re: Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
I live in La Plata, MD and my family and several neighbors saw the exact same strange light in the sky a little after 8:00pm on 9/19/09. The light was really bright and appeared to be shining down towards the ground, but we did not see a plane or helicopter and we did not hear any sound. The light was very high up and certainly not at an altitude that a helicopter would fly. The light just slowly faded away. Very strange.

Re: Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
I am in Michigan south of Detroit 15 miles. It was Saturday 19 Sept 8:30ish am. I saw a very bright light in the sky it was stationary for at least 5 to 10 minutes. With Binocs I watched continously for the ten mins. There was no movement for the whole time. Then, it divided into two equal sized lights and assended into space. Wish that I could have had a quality telescope. Strange at any rate.

Re: Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
We saw the same thing. We were out sitting around the fire. Looking at some of the stars starting to come out. Noticed one bright star south east of us. We started talking and enjoying the fire, Then my cousins husband noticed something beside the bright star. Same thing everyone else has described on here today. We couldn't believe what we witnessed. Stayed up to watch news, but no mention of it. Got online this morning. AND THANK GOD SOMEONE ELSE SEEN IT TOO!!

Night Time Artificial Cloud Study Using NASA Sounding Rocket
09/10/09

A rocket experiment that may shed light on the highest clouds in the Earth’s atmosphere was conducted from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on September 19, 2009. The experiment was launched on a NASA Black Brant XII Sounding Rocket.

Black Brant Sounding Rocket The Charged Aerosol Release Experiment (CARE) was conducted by the Naval Research Laboratory and the Department of Defense Space Test Program using a NASA four-stage Black Brant XII suborbital sounding rocket. Using ground based instruments and the STP/NRL STPSat-1 spacecraft, scientists will study an artificial noctilucent cloud formed by the exhaust particles of the rocket’s fourth stage at about 173 miles altitude.

Ground based cameras and radars were based at various observation stations along the Atlantic coast and in Bermuda. Because of the optical observations, the launch required clear skies not only at Wallops but also at the multiple observation stations.

The Spatial Heterodyne IMager for MEsospheric Radicals instrument on the STPSat-1 spacecraft will track the CARE dust cloud for days or even months. The SHIMMER instrument has previously viewed natural noctilucent clouds for the past two years. The CARE is the first space viewing of an artificial noctilucent cloud.

Data collected during the experiment will provide insight into the formation, evolution, and properties of noctilucent clouds, which are typically observed naturally at high latitudes. In addition to the understanding of noctilucent clouds, scientists will use the experiment to validate and develop simulation models that predict the distribution of dust particles from rocket motors in the upper atmosphere.

Natural noctilucent clouds, also known as polar mesospheric clouds, are found in the upper atmosphere as spectacular displays that are most easily seen just after sunset. The clouds are the highest clouds in Earth’s atmosphere, located in the mesosphere around 50 miles altitude.

They are normally too faint to be seen with the naked eye and are visible only when illuminated by sunlight from below the horizon while the Earth’s surface is in darkness.

A team from government agencies and universities, led by the Naval Research Laboratory, is conducting the experiment. In addition to the Naval Research Laboratory, participants include the DoD STP, NASA, University of Michigan, Air Force Research Laboratory, Clemson University, Stanford University, University of Colorado, Penn State University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Haystack Observatory.



Did anyone else notice that the above statement is in past tense, but was posted on sept 10th. Maybe they released the excuse too soon.

Re: Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
Yep i saw it too. Was fishing next to earl naval base on my friend's boat in nj off sandy hook. Exactly 750 pm. WAS NOT A REGISTERED AIRCRAFT. It had no marker lights and was not a military plane like a C130 or a helicopter. I have no idea what it was but it was very close to keansberg and flew vertically directly over us. The best i can describe it was a nuclear reactor upside down. It lasted about 20 seconds and left this green tinge of haze that could be clearly identified because the sky was clear. Immidiately after, we lost one GPS, our radar, and partial navigation lights. Coast Guard channel was silent the entire time this was happening. My guess is that it is either military and came from the far south-east end of earl naval base, or it is UFO. This thing had no strobe markers, flew faster than any conventional aircraft, went into a vertical climb faster than any helicopter and was 100% silent.

Looks like most of the people posting here do not need NASAs help to look like morons.

The rocket was supposed to have been launched on the 9th, thats why the use of the past tense. It was delayed but the explaining message was not.

Black Brandt missiles are SUBORBITAL, this was not an orbiting anything, it was only 50 miles up.

I noticed nobody even saw the noctilucent clouds it produced that were visible until way passed midnight... too busy trying desperately not to take notice of evidence but to explain it all as UFOs, NASA secrecy or drugs in the water.

Oh, by the way, the aluminum oxide released to make the clouds will NOT harm you.

Re: Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
Sorry mods accidently posted a new thread.

We actually had activity in england too last night. Next doors dogs were barking like mad in the garden, I went out to see what the fuss was about and up in the sky above us was an elongated craft with static white lights on each end. It released a small sphere of light which independently moved away from the larger craft. The both flew off into the clouds. Seconds later, a black helicopter with blue and red lights scanned the exact location for ten minutes before flying off.

Activity appears to be picking up.

Re: Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
I saw the light over brooklyn last night, a bright white light emitting a cone shaped light under it as if pointing a flashlight towards the ground, the light lingered, almost as if it was moving away from the earth, and then disappeared, leaving a lingering mist where the light had been. the strange thing was that the light looked as if it was being shined through clouds, but the sky was completely clear and there were no planes to speak of when it was happening. All the planes we saw had a completely different kind of light, much more yellow and bright. This was soft and misty. Weird.

Re: Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
Ok .. I don't even know how to describe what I just saw. I went out to move my car and I glanced up at the sky and there was a very strange light formation.

Now, there is not a cloud in the sky ... and brilliant stars all around .. and I saw this light formation that looked like the sun brilliantly shining through clouds during sunset and the light radiating out at various angles .. like a trapezoid .. a very controlled shape of light beams .. but there were no aircraft in the sky as far as I could tell.

Then, I noticed the light morphing and almost disappearing like smoke dissipating into thin air .. just so weird to see light morph like that .. and then the angles got very irregular and the light turned into more of a 'puff' of light. I ran to get my husband quickly because I saw it changing .. when we looked up at the sky, he saw what was left over .. a very thin/transparent irregularly shaped light formation that just got more and more transparent and finally disappeared. He thought it was very strange as well.

I have zero knowledge of UFOs .. does anyone know what this could have possibly been .. or does it sound like anything you have seen or heard of? Thanks.

I was participating with friends in a Nightsky Photography workshop at Acadia National Park. There were 15 adults: 12 participants, 2 park service employees to drive van and assist, plus Tyler Nordgren,PhD astronomer and artist, teaching the workshop. After an introduction and instructions, we all set up our cameras on the edge of Eagle Lake, most of us aiming southwest hoping to capture the Milky Way as the evening progressed. (The workshop was scheduled from 6:30-9:00pm ET.)

At approximately 7:50pm ET, we all observed a bright object that appeared suddenly directly in front of us. It seemed to come down in the sky, burn brightly creating a cone of light shining towards the ground much like a streetlight and fog-like light around it. the "streetlight" did not make it the ground. After a few seconds, the object disappeared. The fog and "streetlight" slowly disappeared after about 45 seconds. It just seemed to fade from the cone shape to a smudge in the sky.

At least 3 participants' cameras captured the event. (A series of 3 photos are attached, hopefully.) Not knowing where else to share such an event, we are posting it here. A description of photography workshop can be found here:

Night Time Artificial Cloud Study Using NASA Sounding Rocket
09/10/09

A rocket experiment that may shed light on the highest clouds in the Earth’s atmosphere was conducted from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on September 19, 2009. The experiment was launched on a NASA Black Brant XII Sounding Rocket.

Black Brant Sounding Rocket The Charged Aerosol Release Experiment (CARE) was conducted by the Naval Research Laboratory and the Department of Defense Space Test Program using a NASA four-stage Black Brant XII suborbital sounding rocket. Using ground based instruments and the STP/NRL STPSat-1 spacecraft, scientists will study an artificial noctilucent cloud formed by the exhaust particles of the rocket’s fourth stage at about 173 miles altitude.

Ground based cameras and radars were based at various observation stations along the Atlantic coast and in Bermuda. Because of the optical observations, the launch required clear skies not only at Wallops but also at the multiple observation stations.

The Spatial Heterodyne IMager for MEsospheric Radicals instrument on the STPSat-1 spacecraft will track the CARE dust cloud for days or even months. The SHIMMER instrument has previously viewed natural noctilucent clouds for the past two years. The CARE is the first space viewing of an artificial noctilucent cloud.

Data collected during the experiment will provide insight into the formation, evolution, and properties of noctilucent clouds, which are typically observed naturally at high latitudes. In addition to the understanding of noctilucent clouds, scientists will use the experiment to validate and develop simulation models that predict the distribution of dust particles from rocket motors in the upper atmosphere.

Natural noctilucent clouds, also known as polar mesospheric clouds, are found in the upper atmosphere as spectacular displays that are most easily seen just after sunset. The clouds are the highest clouds in Earth’s atmosphere, located in the mesosphere around 50 miles altitude.

They are normally too faint to be seen with the naked eye and are visible only when illuminated by sunlight from below the horizon while the Earth’s surface is in darkness.

A team from government agencies and universities, led by the Naval Research Laboratory, is conducting the experiment. In addition to the Naval Research Laboratory, participants include the DoD STP, NASA, University of Michigan, Air Force Research Laboratory, Clemson University, Stanford University, University of Colorado, Penn State University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Haystack Observatory.

Well, if NASA has an explanation for the light then it's almost a certainty that it was a UFO.
