A streetlight?
 
2007-02-18 01:32:15 PM  
No, it is not a street lamp.
Not a plane either, because it has been about in the same spot in the sky for awhile
 
2007-02-18 01:32:34 PM  
You took a pic of Unicron. And apparently, he's feeling a little bit down today.
 
2007-02-18 01:32:49 PM  
A streetlight at night, possibly in the rain, possibly shot through a dirty window.
 
2007-02-18 01:34:06 PM  
I don't know, but tell it to wipe that shiat on the curtains before it drips on the carpet.

I've never seen a streetlight drastically change its position in relativity to me
 
2007-02-18 01:34:16 PM  
And what is that tail thingie.
I took several pics and it was in all of them.
I cleaned the lense well before starting.
I was using 48x zoom.
 
2007-02-18 01:34:35 PM  
I still vote for streetlight. Some precipitation involved.

The thing is in the sky.

You're not really an astronomer if your telescope is a cardboard toilet paper roll.

Put down the disposable camera & muskatel, and go take a nap.

Has anyone said

...streetlight yet?

I think you're the first.

Fracking Germans, man, I tell ya.

Uranus?

Looks like a street light to me.

I have never had a street light move on me.

Why, no! You're the first! Congrats! :-)
 
2007-02-18 01:38:09 PM  
It's an alien! Finally, proof! I wanted to believe, and now I can! They've come for us!

//Streetlight.
/How were you expecting this thread to turn out?

Quoted for truth

How can you see it as anything but?

Has my tinfoil hat slipped too far?

BGates: I have never had a street light move on me.

you obviously don't smoke the same stuff I do....
 
2007-02-18 01:38:50 PM  
This (pops) is the camera.

I will go take a pic of the street light so you can see the difference.
 
2007-02-18 01:38:56 PM  
forked_at_fark: The thing is in the sky.

At what angle to you?

I also vote streetlight.

UFO

Follow with an abduction thread and feel free submit pictures of your being probed.
 
2007-02-18 01:39:36 PM  
Its a giant bottle of glowing milk being poured.
 
2007-02-18 01:39:37 PM  
forked_at_fark: The thing is in the sky.

I'm sorry but in my mind the error of you being on drugs or just and attention whore and taking picture of a streetlight is astronomically higher than that of it being anything else.

It might be a reflection off something else of a streetlight, but it's a streetlight nonetheless.
 
2007-02-18 01:40:30 PM  
A sailboat?
 
2007-02-18 01:41:16 PM  
A Martian Tripod that's missing two legs ;)

mialynneb: A sailboat?

Heh heh heh...you dumb bastard.....
 
2007-02-18 01:42:39 PM  
I think it's one of those lights you find near a street.
 
2007-02-18 01:42:41 PM  
Streetlights? People?

or

A wheel in the sky that keeps on turning?
 
2007-02-18 01:43:02 PM  
That would be a streetlight.

If that picture was taken with that camera you're a miserable photographer. I have a 12X optitical with only 6mp and even under the worst conditions I couldn't get that bad of a picture, and I use mine rather exclusively for night shots so I know how to fark up a picture

THERE IS NO EASTER BUNNY!
 
2007-02-18 01:44:48 PM  
Shenanigans!
 
2007-02-18 01:46:47 PM  
By the way, the thing isn't in the sky where I can see it anymore.

Here is a pic of the streetlight.
I didn't mess with the tripod this time, so it is a little blurry.

*snerk*

I'm with the streetlight idea.

It was CITIZEN KANE!
 
2007-02-18 01:48:14 PM  
That picture of the streetlight isn't helping your case any.

They look about the same to me.
 
2007-02-18 01:49:04 PM  
People, it's not a streetlight. Let's use technology to figure this out.

Here, I lightened it up in Photoshop.

It's a lightning bug taking a piss.

ohhh, well in THAT case, it was a weather ballon.

/rolls eyes
 
2007-02-18 01:49:20 PM  
I'm going to go with: a zepplin. Stationary, or nearly so, well lit, and the trailing bit is a drag rope.
 
2007-02-18 01:50:19 PM  
PhysicsJunky: If that picture was taken with that camera you're a miserable photographer.

I tried various settings.
I couldn't get it to focus at all at 76x, so I turned off the digital zoom and settled for 48x.
And I used a tripod.

Could it have been a shuttle or the ISS, or perhaps a satellite?
 
2007-02-18 01:50:22 PM  
Obviously, it was a planet that had to pee. Give it some privacy.
 
2007-02-18 01:50:33 PM  
It's coming right for us!

/that's either a similar streetlight or a similar one, and
//WTF did you do to the picture
 
2007-02-18 01:51:28 PM  
HAHAHAHAHAHA!

So, it really IS a streetlight.

HAHAHAHAHAHA ;)
 
2007-02-18 01:51:49 PM  
ArbitraryConstant: /that's either a similar streetlight or a similar one, and

That doesn't sound like an either/or option ;)
 
2007-02-18 01:52:03 PM  
Here is a photography suggestion. Turn your ISO down to 100-200 and set your camera onto manual. Low ap, slow shutter speed.
 
2007-02-18 01:52:08 PM  
it's your credibility.

see how it's burning out?
 
2007-02-18 01:52:24 PM  
ArbitraryConstant: //WTF did you do to the picture

Only cropped it.
