1991 Police Helicopter FLIR Footage of UFO Examined

FLIR footage of UFO Published: 1:08 PM 1/14/2012

Daytona Beach, Florida

The UFO Hunter team received footage of an unknown flying object captured on an Infrared Police camera on March 1, 1991. The object was invisible to the naked eye.

Sheriff department employees Mark Patterson and Jim DelaRosa captured the enigmatic object. Taken from their helicopter with a FLIR camera, the object appears to be of a barbell shape.

The camera is sensitive to heat, and will capture shapes of objects that the human eye cannot discern.

The team visits Patterson, who details the incident. Patterson called the local ATC, and was told that nothing unusual was showing at the time on radar.

The team also visited Delarosa at his home to get his side of the story. As they looked at the footage, it was brought out that the object in question appeared to be emitting two different heat sources with a lighter middle section.

Another disturbing fact about the sighting is that the two men believe that the object may have been tracking their helicopter.

None of the researchers or retired Sheriff Department employees had ever seen any type of craft that resembled the object capture on March 1, 1991, in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Other experts who analyzed the footage ruled out the possibility that the object was a helicopter, or other conventional aircraft.
