The #1 Paranormal News Site
I recently attempted to launch a Kickstarter that I cancelled (literally 14 hours into it) due to it being poorly thought out.
I spent more time researching this and found NASA's fireball program . These are a series of Cameras that are sky facing. They are designed primarily to detect fireballs, but they are cameras.. they see anything.. including UFOs going from state to state. It gives us the ability to track things over very long distances.
It's almost a visual radar. Which is helpful since some of these UFOs don't appear on Radar.
I took the time to contact NASA, and got their permission to forward this off to people. IE: promote it.
Here's the proposal. I want to expand this network to extent that NASA's budget allows for this program. Every area that can be reasonably covered should be.
Looking at their website, I would assume that they lack the marketing dollars behind the project to contact all these property owners. I believe we can speed this process up.
My goal is to get these cameras up, initially I thought to build them.. but the wheel is already there.. and I don't want to reinvent something. I was thinking too small. Covering a valley vs covering half a continent with the costs being offset by NASA. This is a no brainer… I would have cancelled my Kickstarter before launching if I knew this program existed.. and 99.9999999999% of the people in the areas that a camera would be paid for by NASA to be put there don't know the program exists.
The properties have to be mapped out, the cameras have to "sky connect" and be able to track an object from one horizon to another, then another camera needs to pick it up. So we're not contacting ~75,000,000 people, but it's still going to be hundreds maybe thousands depending on the response rate.. after spending some serious time mapping it out via Google Earth to where the cameras need to go in the first place, then correlating that data to get a list of property addresses, and then launch a snail mail campaign. Why snail mail? Because in this case the response rate would be higher and the record list is found right withing Google Maps.. saving a ton of time on research for phone numbers or email addresses (remember we could be talking thousands, after limiting the potential ~75 million in the targeted areas)
Option 1 :
Now who wants to take this project on? If there's a long list of people that want to help for free.. then let's do it… I'll setup a sister subreddit for this so I don't pollute /r/ufos with this and start on building the list from Google maps based on locations assuming 20 people are helping over the course of each week.
I put my life on hold for the next 3 months and just do it .. but I can't afford to do it without any assistance. I have a mortgage, 3 kids and a dad with cancer. So if I put my life on hold for the next 3 months to build our UFO network using NASA's money, then I'll need to do this via a Kickstarter.
Now if the community backs this, I'll run it. If this post get's downvoted to hell or everyone thinks I am crazy for pushing it then I'll stop.. but I just think we could expand the NASA Fireball Detection network, and that would work for our purposes as well. We should have access to those new cameras the same way we have access to the existing ones. I don't care if it's option 1 or 2 or 3.
Verification of my efforts should be simple, considering everyone has access to the cameras that go online. New ones could be easily correlated with the contacts that were made.
Also postage , printing, letters OR researching time into email addresses and phone numbers can be costly.
Someone else comes up with a better solution below and we take that one.
