Photography And Half-Thoughts By Mitchell Hegman

...because some of it is pretty and some of it is not.

That girl and I saw a UFO.  We saw the UFO night before last while out sitting on our back deck at sunset.  I am posting a crummy and greatly enlarged photograph I captured with my SLR camera.
My photograph is not helpful, I know.
The thing we saw remained mostly stationary high in the atmosphere.  I thought it was a weird planet when I first sighted it.  I fetched my spotting scope and managed to fix on it for several minutes.
I would describe the thing as bright metallic, or white, and shaped like a sweet onion.  Lines ran vertically down side of the object.  A single bright light blinked on the belly and one “side” of the UFO seemed concaved in a circular shape.
We lost sight of the UFO as the sky fully darkened around it.
I conducted an internet search and found only one thing that seemed similar: NASA’s Wanaka balloon.  But I cannot imagine a balloon so stationary.  I have posted a photograph of the Wanaka balloon.
I am not suggesting the UFO came from a distant planet.  I just don’t know what it was.

  1. Seriously now, the UFO is a Pleiadian vehicle sent to earth to look for an extremely dangerous Reptilian who is poised to wreak havoc in the entire world using the US as its home base.

  2. I really don't know what to name of what we saw. I got a pretty good look at the thing with my spotting scope. Seems likely from here, but what the hell was it?
