hereunder is the sighting and photos of a french family which was witness to a ufo sighting near geneva from french border.translation is my own.I have joined yesterday the mufon network and do not know precisely your modus operandi yet.a minor took these photos and her and her family wish to remain anonymous.her email (first name is Cecile is hereunder though) please keep her name anonymous as i have definitely promised this to her family.photos when zoomed up show six orbs forming second light not visible to the eye when sighting occuredBonsoir John, Good evening johnVoici donc un r���cit de ce que l'on a vu hier dimanche 7/12/2008 vers 17h15 (les photos sont not���es ��� 18h15...car je n'avais pas chang��� l'heure ���t��� hiver !!) here is the story of our sighting of sunday dec 7th 2008 around 5 15 PM (photos show 6 15 PM as hadn t changed to winter time yet)Etant situ��� dans la Haut Jura, les t���l���phones portables passant mal, quand j'ai re���u un appel, je me suis dirig���e vers ma baie vitr���e (comme ��� notre habitude) qui est plein EST, afin de mieux recevoir. as i live in the high jura mountains cell phones cannot go through well so i went to my large window to receive better , my window is full east.Et c'est ��� ce moment que j'ai vu 1 grosse lumi���re au loin au dessus de la Suisse (Difficile d'���valuer la distance), apr���s avoir raccrocher mon t���l���phone, j'ai appeler ma famille afin qu'elle vienne voir, et je suis all���e chercher mon appareil photo (APN avec objectif 70-300mm - 6mpx), thats is when i saw at a disatnce a big brilliant light above switerland (difficult to evluate ditance) after haniging up , i called my family so they could watch tooand went to get my camera (APN with 70 300 mm lense 6megapixels).Pour nous cette lumi���re ne pouvait ���tre une ���toile (trop grosse ?) et tr���s lumineuse. Nous avons pens��� ��� un avion (puisqu'il y a l'a���roport de Gen���ve), mais pour nous la forme ne bougeait pas et la lumi���re ���tait trop grosse, nous avons l'habitude de voir les lumi���re des avions (nous avons d'ailleurs v���rifi��� plus tard), et elles ne sont pas si grosses, m���me quand ils allument le "gros phare", cel��� n'est pas si gros, de plus le ciel ���tait parfaitement d���gag���...pas un nuage, temp���rature n���gative, temps froid et sec (pour dire, il a fait -10 dans la nuit). for us this light couldn t be a star (too big) and too luminous.we thought it could be a plane (as geneva s airport is closeby)but the light wasnt moving and was too brilliant.we are used to seeing plane lights including the very powerful beams and they are not that big.besides the sky was cristal clear , no clouds and under freezing point temperature cold and dry.Je suis donc sortie sur mon balcon afin de prendre des photos, mais la 1���re a ���t��� loup���e car je n'avais pas pos��� l'appareil (je ne suis pas pro, et il n'y avait pas assez de lumi���re), donc apr���s j'ai chang��� d'endroit, j'ai pos��� mon APN sur ma barri���re, et j'ai pris 2 photos. I went out on my balcony to shoot the photos but missed the first one(not a professional)so i changed area , put my adn (digital camera) and shot two more photos atuomatically.Ensuite, nous avons regard��� encore un moment, puis la lumi���re a disparue dans un scintillement in���gal "orange", elle est revenue comme on l'a vu, puis a compl���tement disparue. we then looked a while then the light disappeared in a fuzzy unequal orangy colour , came back as we saw it again then disappeared fully.Quand je parle de la lumi���re, c'est celle qui est la plus grosse, c'est en mettant les photos sur l'ordinateur que je me suis aper���ue qu'il y avait une 2���me lumi���re (forme bizarre en grossissant fortement l'image, avec plusieurs points lumineux). Je pr���cise que nous ���tions 4 ��� regarder cel���, et aucun des 4 n'a vu cette 2���me lumi���re (peut ���tre trop focalis���s sur la 1���re ?). Les 2 photos ont ���t��� prises ��� 14s d'intervalle. when i speak of the light it is the larger one.it s ones photos loaded on my computer that I noticed there was a second one (bizarrely shaped as when fully zoomed one can see a few smaller lights).we were four to watch this event and noce of us saw the second light.both photos were taken at 14 seconds apart.Pour nous, la lumi���re n'a pas boug��� (en tout cas nous n'avons pas vu de mouvement), c'est en voyant les 2 photos que Guillaume a mis sur le forum, avec l'axe trac���, que nous voyons qu'il y a eu d���placement. for us the light didn t move (we havent seen any movement) and it s by seeing the photos on the ids forum with a axis traced that we saw movement.J'ai regard��� ce soir ��� la m���me heure, m���me temps (-5���c, et temps ciel d���gag���), je n'ai rien vu. i looked tonight at same hour and saw nothing.Pour l'orientation : la photo est quasi plein EST, la droite de la photo le NORD, donc la gauche de la photo Le SUD, les fils que l'on voit c'est une ligne haute tension.the orientation of the photo is full east with north to the right handside and left being south.the wires seen are electrical.Les photos ont ���t��� prises avec le 300mm, mode scene de nuit, la ligne haute tension est ��� environ 300m de chez moi, et les 1er sapins 500 m. PHOTOS WERE TAKEN WITH THE 300 MM NIGHTVISION FIRST TREES ARE ABOUT 500 METERS FROM MY HOUSEJe me tiens ��� votre disposition pour de plus amples renseignements.
