Cali, Colombia, January 23, 2011
Dear Sirs, last Sunday January 23, 2011, we were visiting a piece of land near the city of Cali, Colombia, where I live and where we are planning to start a subdivision project. I was with a professional photographer, taking photos for a brochure of our project.
During the session (on top of a mountain), we didnít see anything out of the ordinary.
Last Monday January 24, 2011, he sent me a CD with the 130 photos taken that Sunday. I took a look at all of them using my Macbook pro 17" and didn't notice anything strange.
Only Wednesday morning, when I was showing the pictures to my brother, but this time on a 42" LCD TV set, photo #80 had a dark spot between two clouds against the blue sky.
First, we thought that it was a bird, but something about its shape and size made me run to my PC and make a zoom over the dark spot.
Well, it seems to be an object for sure, not a bird. Perhaps a small aircraft, one of those ultra-light ones? I don't know, because itís "boomerang" shape is kind of weird.
What really called my attention last night was that I remembered that the photographer was shooting rapidly between pictures. I don't know a thing about photography, but photo #79 and photo #81 are almost identical to photo #80 (you can tell by the clouds that changes only very slightly). The object only appears in photo #80, but it is not there in 79 and 81.
I just called the photographer and asked him if he can get from his camera the timing between the 3 pictures.
To my surprise, these are the times, taken from his Canon Camera ( no tripod):
Photo 79: 11:04:33 AM (Fnumber:9 ; Exposure Time: 1/400).
Photo 80: 11:04:45 AM (Fnumber:9 ; Exposure Time: 1/250).
Photo 81: 11: 04:50 AM (Fnumber:9 ; Exposure Time: 1/250).
