One of my friend in the media industry saw my blog about the UFO sighting that had everyone up and down the east coast in a frenzy for a few hours. This was until NASA reported that it had launched a rocket from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virgina. The bright cone of light that was witnessed by hundreds of people was made to produce an artificial cloud.
He was out shooting video Saturday night and managed to capture about 15 seconds of the artifical cloud being formed. Being an avid CtCameraEye follower he sent me a few frame grabs that he got off of the video.
Here is the first frame grab taken at about 7:57pm.
Here is that same frame that I inverted in Photoshop. Very interesting to see different features in the cone area.
Finally, I ran a Photoshop filter over the image just picking out all of the sharp edges that are hidden by slightly different pixel colors within the cone and sharpened them up so it was easier to see the structure within the cloud. Now we are talking VERY INTERESTING!
Not bad for getting all of this information off of a frame grab of a video going 29.97 frames a second!
Keep looking up!
