UFO Hunting Tips

The Milky Way may contain tens of billions of habitable planets. UFO hunters contend it’s only a matter of time before creatures from another planet come to Earth to investigate – and it’s possible that some already have. If you want to become a UFO hunter, start by checking out hotspots for UFO sightings. Aside from knowing where to look, you’ll need good camera equipment and a recording system. Read on to learn more about how to become a UFO hunter

The Hunt…

1. Get a good camera. “Hunting” UFOs describes the act of spotting UFOs, usually in the night sky, and taking pictures or recordings to capture their activity. Many people have declared they’ve seen a UFO, and some have even reported being abducted, but no one has been able to provide definitive proof that this has occurred. Because we live in a society of skeptics, it’s absolutely imperative for a serious UFO hunter to have serious equipment for getting concrete data on UFOs.
Buy a camera that takes excellent pictures at night. You’ll need a special lens that can capture the faint lights and patterns created by the UFOs.
A video camera is also very useful to have. The more ways you have to document the UFOs, the better.

 

2. Carry a notebook and pen. You’ll need to be able to keep a record of the details of your sightings. Have a notebook and writing instrument with you at all times so that you’ll be able to jot down all the necessary information right when it happens. Later, when you get home, plan to record the information in a log on your computer.


3. Find a UFO sighting hotspot. Organizations like the National UFO Reporting Center have online databases listing sightings by state, date, and shape.[1] Look into hotspots in your region. It’s not guaranteed you’ll see a UFO there, but it’s a great place to start.
Plan on visiting the same spot multiple times.
If necessary, make travel arrangements to visit a spot in a different state. Some states don’t have many, if any, hotspots.
Go to a place that doesn’t have a lot of air traffic, so you don’t mistake human aircraft for UFOs.

4. Set up camp for several hours in the evening. Once you’re there, you may have to sit tight for a long time before you see any activity. Patience is a virtue among UFO hunters; be prepared to spend a lot of time waiting under the stars.

5. Record any activity you see. As soon as you see activity, even if you aren’t sure what you saw was indeed a UFO, write it down. Record the following information:
The date and time of the sighting
The location of the sighting
The shape, size, and color of the UFO
Whether there were additional witnesses

6. Distinguish UFOs from human aircraft. After you’ve hunted for UFOs for awhile, you’ll start to notice patterns. Do research to find out whether what you’re seeing may have an explanation; for example, if you’re looking for UFOs near an Air Force Base, you might be seeing human-made aircraft, even if they look unfamiliar. Real UFOs may have the following characteristics:
They don’t move in a straight line, but rather up and down or in zig zags. They may not move in regular patterns at all
They don’t blink, like airplanes would
They may be shaped like discs, triangles, or something else entirely.

Getting Involved in the UFO Community

1. Report your sightings to a database. Ufology organizations have databases where they keep all the important statistics on UFO sightings. If you spot a UFO and report it, you’re contributing to the UFO community at large. You can also learn a lot by spending time reading through others’ reports.

2. Find a Ufology organization to join. There are several established organizations with chapters in every state. If you’re interested in pursuing Ufology long-term, its worth joining up with a group. Here are a few options:
Mutual UFO Network
UFOdb
National UFO Reporting Center

CIA Guidance For UFO Photographers – UFO Community

How to take photos of UFOs, according to the CIA…

1. Have camera set at infinity.
2. Fast film, such as Tti-X, is very good.

3. For moving objects shutter speeds not slower than one hundredth of a second should be used. Shutter and f-stop combination will depend upon lighting conditions; dusk, cloudy day, bright sunlight, etc. If your camera does not require such settings, just take pictures.

Guidance for UFO Photographers

4. Do not move camera during exposure.

5. Take several pictures of the object; as many as you can. If you can, include some ground in the picture of the UFO.

6. If the object appears to be close to you, a few hundred feet or closer, try to change your location

 

on the ground so that each picture, or few pictures are taken from a different place. A change in position of 40 or 60 feet is good. (This establishes what is known as a base line and is helpful in technical analysis of your photography.) If the object appears to be far away, a mile or so, remain about where you are and continue taking pictures. A small movement here will not help. However, if you can get in a car and drive 1/2 to a mile or so and take another series of pictures this will help.

7. After pictures of UFO have been taken, remain where you are: now, slowly turning 360° take overlapping, eye level, photography as you turn around. By this technique the surrounding countryside will be photographed. This photography is very valuable for the analysis of the UFO you have just photographed.

8. Your original negative is of value. Be sure it is processed with care.

9. If you can, have another negative made from the original.

10. Any reproductions you have made for technical study and analysis should be made from the original negative and should be printed to show all the picture including the border and even the sprocket holes, if your film has them.
