The #1 UFO Resource
I was enjoying a christmas day bonfire on dockweiler beach, la, ca. at approximately 7:00 pm i wandered down to the beach and thought i would take a couple of pictures of the surf using my iphone 6s. even though it was dark out i wanted to see what if anything the camera would record of the surf. the live mode records a short burst of video (approximately 2-3 seconds of footage before and after the camera records the desired still image). i did not notice anything before and after but upon reviewing the images next morning i noticed that an unusual light had been captured. the light was apparently moving extremely quickly towards me. when i look at the still image that i recorded it shows the blurred path of the object as it covers a significant distance within the frame. the path of the blurred line is not straight. in looking at the video prior to the object appearing, i can clearly see the lights of a freighter on the water (extreme left frame) and several blinking lights in the sky which i assumed were receding aircraft. the beach we were on is located at the foot of one of lax's take-off runways. these blinking lights are visible throughout the video, both before and after the unusual event. as a point of context i have worked as a professional video producer, director and photographer for approximately 25 years. as i look at the images i see something that suddenly appears mid frame and it feels to me that the object/light is travelling towards me and away to my left. the light appears very briefly, goes dark and then becomes visible again. when i look at the surrounding area to see if this light is reflected on the water, i do see a flash. in a second image that i had taken, i can again see a flash but not visible trail of light. i would like to send the original live images to you, but they are only viewable using iphone 6s… so, i will send the still image recorded by live3 and two animated gif files that were converted, using an app called lively.
