08-26-08-Attached are 3 images from 35, of an object which was literally invisible to naked eye. On 08-26-08, I was in my back garden in northwest Coventry sweeping the crystal clear blue sky with my Nikon 8 x 40 binoculars. After a while, I caught sight of a tiny glimmer of light almost at the zenith. I had my 600mm focal length apo telescope with Canon 450D slr on my lap set up for infinity with fast shutter speed.I made an attempt to get the object in the camera view finder which was very difficult due to very narrow field-of-view, but got it on second attempt. In the camera/scope, object seemed elongated horizontally and was glinting in the strong sunlight. Managed to obtain 35 frames before arms gave way (heavy!). I tried to locate object in binoculars again, but could not find it.
On loading images into laptop, a very unusual ‘flying saucer’ shaped object was apparent. On a few frames, there seems to be a greenish light on the object! I guess that it could still be a balloon of some sort, but it must have been extremely high to be invisible to my eyeglass-corrected for infinity eyes.
All images taken with a Skywatcher 80ED refractor + Canon EOS 450D digital slr (12mp) 1/2500 sec, iso 400 ,f7.5 ,600mm fl.
