  • Any Patrick Moores?

    I was sitting in the garden about 3pm yesterday - it was a beautiful day with a clear blue sky - and I kept noticing something glinting very high up. I mean really high - higher than the tiny specks of planes that you see passing over. I got a pair of binoculars out but couldn't hold them steady enough to get a proper fix on it. Definitely something there though. In the fifteen minutes or so that I was looking it didn't seem to move much. I tried googling what objects might be visible in daylight - I was thinking satellites or something - but didn't really come up with anything. Any ideas?

    I've watched satellites before and they look like tiny stars moving very, very slowly across the skyline, very high like dots as you describe. Never seen them in the afternoon but then I don't think that would be unusual.

    Anyway this gives me an excuse to tell my UFO story.... About 10 years ago I was stood in the garden with my wife around 11pm or later and she pointed to three tiny dots in the sky which were moving. I said they are probably satellites until we watched them moving around in odd patterns like L shapes and half circles around each other at a very high speed. This carried on for about half an hour and finally one of the dots made the most strange movement almost like a half rhombus followed by an inverted L and they all vanished. Honestly it was the weirdest thing but they were so tiny I always shrug it off as it's not like I saw anything up close however it still disturbs the missus to this day and she wont talk about it for long.

    I must add we were both completely sober and of clear mind!

        Ooooo, never watched that. Is that the 'History Channel' doc from 09 that's coming up via google search?

          I'd love to see a UFO - though would probably do a little something in my pants too!

          I did wonder about the glinting on the thing I saw - like it was stationary but shifting a bit. As I said I couldn't get a steady enough view with the binoculars but I did think it might've been 'H' shaped or smilar

            I lay on my back yesterday evening and had a look for glinting H-shaped satellites in the skies. I didn't see any, but was disturbed to observe that our planet seems to be under attack from transparent drifting space worms.

              I've seen these too BC - and also heard some very strange music emanating from the sky...

                Yeah. Arguably the best ufo documentary made.
                Watch it

                  I will, I love stuff like that, I draw the line at 'Ancient Aliens' but it looks a decent doc, cheers for the recommendation.

                  I have a huge collection of all the old 'Art Bell - Coast to Coast' radio shows, they are insane and a great deal of the guests he interviews talk absolute nonsense but some of them are stone cold classic talk radio especially on the UFO side of things.

                    I quite like Ancient Aliens, but I like bollocks documentaries, The more convincingly they present the utter bollocks, the better.
                    My favourite bollockumentaries are Mermaids - The Body Found and Megalodon: The Monster Shark That Lives.

                        'bollockumentaries' is a good term you should copyright that! I liked it's bollocksness when it started but it's well out lived itself. It's a bit like when they outed 'Derek Acorah' on that 'Most Haunted' bollocks. There was no show then because it was his over the top absurdity and their blatant fakery that made it funny, you only watched it to see him get 'possessed'.

                        Speaking of Ancient Aliens I've heard a few long interviews with 'Erich Von Daniken' and he's a massive fruitcake but an entertaining one.

                          On the subject of bollockmmentaries the latest one I dived into from 'The History Channel' (who else) was 'The Tesla Files' which as the title suggests is about 'Nikola Tesla' and a bunch of crates with his life's work in them the contents of some which went missing when he died(apparently). The first episode is so full of holes as to be swiss cheese ie: The guy at the 'Tesla Museum/Archive' who wont let the 'team' (there is always a team and always SKYPE calls going down.) go rooting through the basement as there is a 'process for researchers'. Of course there is and it will cost money but cue lots of shots of raised eyebrows that put 'James Finlayson to shame and lots of 'What are they hiding?' voice over nonsense. Two episodes in they still haven't returned to this archive in Serbia where the bulk if not all of these documents are supposed to be and they still haven't discovered wireless electricity.

                          No sign of Derek Acorah neither, I want my money back.

                            I think I saw that Tesla one, watching TV with my kids. Does the phrase 'nazi death ray' enter the proceeding at some stage? I'm amazed at what passes for history or science & nature on the history and nature channels. When I wer a lad, these were factual (well, perhaps more opinion based than we realised, but they seemed factual) tv programs. I remember watching the whole of The World At War sometime in the late 70s, week after week, it made a deep impression on me. Nowadays its sensationalist rubbish in bite sized chunks. The nature channels reduce all animals to 'most deadly', 'most vicious', 'most venomous', etc, etc.. The other show my boys are addicted to is Air Crash Investigation which consists of recreations or dramatizations of air crash investigators sitting around cramped office spaces looking at blueprints of planes and scratching their heads until the eureka moment.

                              I cant remember the 'Nazi' bit (it most probably was used) but certainly they mention a 'Death Ray' multiple times as an invention that could apparently destroy entire cities from the other side of the world!

                              My wife watches 'Aircraft Investigation' and loves it as does my father and apparently the reason it's one of Alan Partidge's favourite TV series is that 'Steve Coogan' is a huge fan too. To be fair to 'Aircraft Investigation' although they do drag it out in a bit of a silly manner it can be quite interesting discovering the reason behind the accidents and the way protocols are changed in the wake of such discoveries but it's not for me, I don't want to know anything about such things!

                              I'm absolutely with you on' 'World's This....' , 'Most....' , 'Deadliest', 'When (Insert Word) Goes Horribly Wrong', 'Top Ten blah blahs', 'The Boy Who Grew Two Heads', 'The Real Life Lizard Man'. I may have made those last two up but you know what I mean; all those click bait titles that bear no relation to what the program is about. Seem to be very little in the way of good documentaries on UK and US television in the mainstream these days but am discovering slowly there is quite a vibrant scene of independent documentaries. There are always exceptions but even some of what some would deem 'serious' or 'high brow' documentaries can be terribly lazy. I remember Alan Yentob's 'Imagine' series in particular the 'John Coltrane' episode where a bulk of the documentary was spent talking about his weight and perceived self consciousnesses about it. Even if true I'm like on the scale of 'Coltraneness' that's pretty far down the list of what makes him interesting.

                              The worst one my wife watches is 'Unsolved Mysteries' where some guy with a white tache stands in front of banks computer terminals and their operators who are seemingly doing something important like a scene from the headquarters of the HQ in 'The Prisoner' without the crazy crane chairs. He then introduces and narrates cheesy reconstructions of missing persons, ghosts and UFO abductions. I think he is occasionally handed a file at points too which never fails to amuse.
