I like the idea! Except for the shooting down craft part. If there’s another sentient species in flying crafts on Earth, they might be “good”, they
might be “bad.” Either way, trying to shoot down craft belonging to a vastly more technologically advanced race seems like a truly terrible idea.
My brainstorm on the idea: Create an open source network of people with “night sky cams.” Let’s assume a camera that can cover a decent area of sky,
and the equipment to stream & record the 24/7 video is reasonable to obtain. Getting full coverage would be monumental, but each unit isn’t a big
deal, so it would be a matter of getting enough participants to cover as large a percentage of the sky as possible.
I’ve often wondered – in each moment, what percentage of the sky is being viewed by a human? Perhaps not much. More “eyes” affixed to the sky wood
certainly improve the probability of capturing sight of something.
What makes this theoretical network of Eyes on the Skies™ difficult to produce results, however, would be scanning through and analyzin all the data
(video.) Each camera would need 3 “watchers”, working 8 hours a day if watched at regular speed.
If software could be incorporated which could flag potential anomalies, and be able to identify as many false positives (known aircraft, geese,
Chinese lanterns, Santa Claus, etc.) as possible, then people could watch and analyze flagged anomalies. Rate it, flag it, leave comments – the more
interesting something is, the more attention, and thus further analysis it gets.
I’m not a programmer, nor do I have the patience to pore through such video, so if anyone wants to take my version and invent it, all I I ask in
return is free access to the viewing app, and Kudos given publicly in exchange for the rights to the name “Eyes on the Skies™ – I don’t mean credit
given in a a big announcement, I just want to receive one Kudos granola snack, somewhere in public.
Now someone, get out there and create this!
