Wow, what’s that up in the sky? It’s brighter than a planet and it sure ain’t a plane.
Luckily, I had just attached a pair of 2X teleconverters to Bazooka Joe and fitted them with the Canon EF mount earlier today, because I’d been missing Black Helicopters and wanted to be ready. 3200mm of magnification action is what was needed to decipher this incredibly bright, almost stationary object in the sky…
Hmmn, exposure too long and F-stop too wide, and the thing actually is moving awfully fast, but it’s a weather balloon.
exposure still too long to get the fast-moving balloon to freeze in the frame, but you can see a little more detail now. By the time I got my exposure time set right, the sun had gone behind the horizon and the balloon had vanished. I’ll be looking for the UFO sighting reports in the paper tomorrow. :D
