  1. I do record, but my camera is pointing straight out of my windshield and I usually only record takeoffs and landings for analysis. Every time I try to record something like a big boy such as a 737 flying near me, I’m either just too slow or the angle of the lens is just too wide to capture the “craziness” of how close it looks. I probably need to start with investing in better recording equipment . I can’t imagine how hard it would be to capture something as small as a drone. What I really want is footage that I assume those that passed over me recorded. As much as I don’t li
  2. You're right Av8Chuck. They were technically an UFOs but that just has such a negative connotation (to me anyway). I feel silly just talking about it, but I also can't shake it for some reason. Balloons are my logical conclusion as well, but they just looked to perfectly spherical. And don't forget the first set of drones either. They were shaped like cubes; no visible arms that would house roaters. I was just hoping that the drone community might know about drones that don't have any visible arms with rotors because this is something if feel very confident in both incidents that was mis
  3. Thanks for your reply Av8Chuck. I was hoping that they were mylars too but after some reading I can’t find anyone who thinks that they would find equilibrium in density at such a low altitude. Therefore I would expect helium to continue to rise beyond 150000. These were holding altitude pretty well. I also think they looked to spherical to be typical balloons but I know that doesn’t hold a lot of weight being I had such a brief time to observe.
  4. Hello all, I’m a bit of an intruder here I think. Please excuse me but I can’t find the help I’m looking for anywhere on the web. I’m a general aviation pilot and have given a small handful of drone sightings to ATC in the past but in the last 30 days I’ve had two very close encounters that I can’t explain. The objects that I saw were what I assumed to be drones at first but the second sighting really confused me and made me question what I had seen in the first encounter. I really don’t want to bore you with my experiences but I would like to know if anyone can help give closure
