First thing I thought was, a street light through a telephoto lens.

goeniegoegoe: I beg to differ.

i didn't say 'pull it'. that's your specialty

did you see the lamp in your sky, too? she's in germany ...

modelcitizen: Dude. I'm high RIGHT NOW, and I can tell it's a streetlight.

forked_at_fark No, more like medium zoom.
Will see if I can use a flash and get more detail.


I checked the specs on the camera. Max flash range 23 feet. At 48x zoom in the dark, is a flash really going to help the matter?

I think the submitter is just an attention whore. Attention whores are very sneaky. You have to be careful because you can't trust attention whores the same way you can trust space whores or mba whores.

Looks to me like one of those tethered blimps they sometimes fly over car dealerships or whatever. At least they do in Texas.

I think they normally take them in at night or if it's windy. With the dealership's lights on, it'd be lit from below and look just like that. The tether will probably reflect some light just like that too.

I would first say streetlight, but since that's been done to death, I'm saying this is the next runner-up.

Subby would have to be really high to get confused by the sight of a streetlight. The tethered miniblimp, at least it's a bit more of a confusing sight.

At 48x zoom, it would be ... a dark, blurry street light, just like the original. Or, if she is shooting through a window, it would be completely white.

An comes before vowel sounds, not vowels.

Since the letter "U" sounds like "you", a UFO is correct.

magick-man: just like the original.

depending upon the actual distance of the lamp and surrounding objects1, one could surmise that they would be lit at least somewhat in her photograph ... IF it's a street lamp, as in previously shown enhanced pix

Farks newest funny cliche: "Is it a street light?"

Who's got a picture of that rabbit with a pancake on its head?

A little forked_at_fark fruedian slip here -- when everyone is saying it looks like *a* streetlight, she refers to *the* streetlight.

2007-02-18 01:46:47 PM forked_at_fark said: Here is a pic of the streetlight.
I didn't mess with the tripod this time, so it is a little blurry.

No one (including her) refered to a particular streetlight before that post. Or am I reading too much into it?

/great thread though...

Okay, It is a street light, save your pride and admit it...
I had the smae thing happen to me in Honduras. Sitting in an ammo depot, I though I kept seeing someone pop flares outside of the perimiter. (was really dark out there) Every few seconds, one would start out high in the sky, and then fade towards the ground. Alerted a whole base... Turned out to be a road on a hill out there, and the angle of the vehicle coming down it only showed one headlight. Felt stupid afterwards, but better safe then sorry.

Oh yeah...streetlight.

i saw that and wondered, but it seems somebody had mentioned streetlight before. so i took her response as in 'no, this is MY streetlight, see how it looks different?' which it didn't :\

A couple of years ago I went on a camping trip in the White Mountains, at a cabin about 2/3 of the way up Mt. Adams. Someone was pointing out the mountain across the way and told me the Indians believed it had mystical powers and some crackpot religion believed it was the focus for mystical rays from outer space or some such thing. When I had the film from camera developed you could see mystical rays bathing the mountainside! It freaked me out for about two seconds until I realized I had a double exposure and the "mystical rays" were the balusters of a wooden guard rail superimposed over the photo of the mountain.

They may appear in her photograph, but may not. It depends on the intensity of the light source, and the angle she was shooting from. My only point in that post was that a flash is really not going to help the much.
