A few days ago, I received two observation videos from Amber Williamson in Clarksburg, WV. She made both of these videos simultaneously on December 9, 2-17 using two iPhone 7 smartphones. One is her phone and the other belongs to her husband.
In her email message to me Amber says, “Marshall, here’s a doozy for ya.” Well, these two videos certainly were as she put it a doozy, because her phone and her husband’s phone captured two different objects of interests in two different places.
I reviewed Amber’s comparison videos with Yowusa.com researcher Duane Brayton at length, and we found that she has provided us with a missing link in correlations between several important Planet X observations made by herself and another researcher here in the United States and those reported by The Sun in the UK on November 16, 2017.
In this article, we’ll show the images along with the analysis because as they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” But first, let’s address a common question about smartphone videos. Do videos of Planet X objects really prove anything? Yes, they do, once you understand the variables.
On February 15, 2013, the Chelyabinsk meteor exploded over Russia with the force of thirty Hiroshima atomic bombs. On that same day, NASA had the whole world waiting in anticipation of asteroid 2012 DA14 becoming a new impact threat which turned out to be a complete non-event.
It was obvious to everyone that NASA had been blindsided by the Chelyabinsk meteor event and so the media pressed them for an explanation. As is typical with the agency, they dance the Lucky Lindy when such things happen which usually works, but this time it didn’t. The media continued to press, and finally, NASA admitted that they were blindsided because they do not look at and just around the sun for incoming objects.
So before we lambaste companies like Apple for not making their smartphones solar observation capable, let’s just remember that Apple makes its smartphone cameras to provide great selfies and ease of use. Herein is the reason why smartphones variables cause these small camera devices to render different images when pointed at the sun, such as was the case with Amber’s side-by-side comparison videos shot on December 9, 2017.
The first thing you have to realize is that smartphone cameras are like zebras. They may look the same, but there are always differences in the stripes. Granted, it is a subtle difference in most cases but one that stands out to the trained eye of a wildlife researcher in the field.
With smartphone cameras, Were dealing with consumer items being manufactured in China for the most part in a vast network of factories and suppliers. Consequently, different manufacturing lots, variances in manufacturing and so forth result in subtle differences that become far less subtle when the camera is turned to the sun due to the following variables: Lens elements and coating, imaging CCD sensitivity, software and user image settings.
Lens Elements and Coating
For those of you who wear eyeglasses, ask your optical store if he can grind your lenses to the precise specification in your optometrist’s prescription. What they will tell you is that they only guaranteed to ground the lens with-in the technical allowances as permitted by law.
Now think about that young Chinese factory workers that make the lenses for the smartphone cameras. They only make a few dollars a day and work long hours. Ergo, the differences in how these lenses are made and how the cement and lens coatings are applied will vary within a contractual allowance.
Imaging CCD Sensitivity and Software
The acronyms CCD stands for charge-coupled device which has over the years become a major technology for digital imaging. Here is where the manufacturers of Handheld devices like smartphones and tablets have been driving both the miniaturization of CCDs and their capability, and the results have led to CCDs with very high-definition resolution.
Consequently, as with lens elements and coatings, imaging CCD sensitivity will vary slightly from supplier to supplier, production lots and so forth, within contractual guidelines.
While the gains with imaging CCDs over the years has been impressive, the magic that makes it all work is the software that processes your CCD imaging. Like the software on all our devices, different versions with different capabilities are also going to create subtle differences as well. However, the one factor that will have the greatest impact are user image settings.
Here you can use your modern smartphone to see this for yourself. When you look at your user preferences for your smartphone, you’ll typically see a range of user definable settings such as Auto focus, auto color, exposure, contrast, vibrance, hue, and saturation.
So the bottom line with smartphones is that they are not designed for capturing images of objects near the sun as one would expect with an expensive telescope designed for solar observations. Virtually all of the videos we see today are captured with these wonderful little consumer handheld devices.
Does this mean that smartphones are useless for making Planet X observations? Absolutely! Not, because what they offer us is an incredible widespread availability across the world which in turn yields of the vast resource of observation videos with which we can use to identify trends and patterns on a vast scale.
With this in mind, let us now begin with an analysis that will show you the real power of smartphones for those with interest in Planet X.
Amber’s Side-by-Side Comparison
To date, Amber Williamson’s Planet X observation videos have been documented in three separate videos posted on Youtube. In preparation for her forthcoming video with us on YouTube, she conducted this side-by-side comparison analysis.
What Duane Brayton and I saw are similar but different fields and planes of view. This is important because these differences will affect exposure and filtering. With this in mind, the specific differences we saw between the two videos shot simultaneously are:
- Amber’s iPhone 7: Less effective UV filtering and more effective exposure control.
- Husbands iPhone 7: More effective UV filtering with less effective exposure control.
For those old enough to remember the days when Kodak film and 35mm cameras ruled the day, It was common to see a UV filter screwed into the front of the lens, because the film used by these cameras is extremely sensitive to UV light, so the filters are used to reduce the UV causing the atmospheric haze, resulting in better overall image quality.
With smartphone cameras, UV sensitivity is also a factor as is shown in this side-by-side comparison analysis. The next important analysis criteria is movement.
Amber Williamson Movement Analysis
One of the cardinal criteria we use in evaluating Planet X observation videos is movement. Simply put, does the object of interest move like a natural object? Here we have the benefit of working with Amber over a period of several months.
Regarding tracking movement relative to the sun, we use the clock face, and here you see that in September of this year the object was at the 11:30 position relative to the sun as seen from the horizon. However, exactly three months later in December, We see that the object of interest has moved to the 11 o’clock position relative to the sun as seen from the horizon.
This is consistent with a natural object in orbit around a larger object, which in this case is not our sun, but our sun’s smaller companion, the Nemesis brown dwarf star at the core of the Planet X system. Next up is an important his and her question that can only be answered with an exposure analysis.
Amber Williamson Exposure Analysis
In her side-by-side comparison, Amber’s husband’s iPhone 7 capturing an object of interest in a completely different area of the sky than her own iPhone 7.
Did Amber’s husband’s iPhone 7 debunk her iPhone 7? No, the overexposure of the sun by the husband’s iPhone 7 completely masks the 11 o’clock position. Furthermore, the differences in UV filtering, exposure, contrast control and other factors are likewise noticeable.
Does this mean the husband’s iPhone 7 is only showing a lens flare? Absolutely not, because his phone captured an object of interest that was widely observed in the same region of the sky on November 16, 2017, in the UK.
Amber Williamson USA and RodOfIron UK
On November 16, 2017, in the UK, the residents of central London beheld an amazing view of what appeared to them as two suns in the key. Countless people looked up this day and saw this with their own eyes. In fact, multiple objects were observed that day, but the first one of interest happens to be in the same region of the sky as the object of interest in Amber’s husband’s iPhone 7 video.
If you’re scratching your head, consider this. Before you begin printing out pictures measuring them with rulers, please remember that there are many variables at play here including time of day, location, field-of-view, plane of you and so forth. Will you find differences due to the many variables described above to incorrectly justify an urge to debunk this so you can ignore the evidence? Of course, you will? However, before you do, there are other aspects of this story you need to investigate.
Out with this video which was originally posted on YouTube by RodOfIron and presented in an article published by The Sun. The video was a viral hit, and the viewing stats were climbing high when I first saw it, and in his Youtube posting, RodOfIron notes in the comments: “Very unusual footage from central London of an of two suns appearing in the sky.”
In checking the video today, Youtube is now posting this message. “This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.”
“Oh that’s just a conspiracy nonsense coincidence” debunkers will claim, but then there is another nagging coincidence. The viewing conditions for this video were caused by the Hurricane Ophelia passing through the British Isles and here is where the BBC outright lied to the world to cover up the legitimacy of RodOfIron’s video and the naked eye observations of countless Londoners that day.
Yowusa.com, October 20, 2017
UK 10/16/2017 – Planet X System Ophelia DayAccording to BBC’s Simon King, “Ophelia originated in the Azores where it was a hurricane, and as it tracked its way northwards, it dragged in tropical air from the Sahara.”
So there it is, the mainstream British media is telling us that Ophelia originated in the Azores where it scooped up dust from the Sahara. Do other new reports corroborate this official narrative? No.The point here is that disinformation always uses a partial or half-truth to give a lie credibility. The lie was where Ophelia originated. According to mainstream media, it originated in the Azores which goes to the Sahara dust claim. However, independent sources report that the storm originated in the North Atlantic.All this raises the obvious question. How does a hurricane that began life as a decaying cold front over the North Atlantic, manage to scoop up sand from the Sahara, carry it thousands of miles to the British Isles then keep it suspended in the air as its wind velocities slow to tropical storm levels before it makes landfall?
Two facts are indisputable here. RodOfIron posted an observation that went viral, and his account was terminated with no explanation given and the BBC weatherman Simon King outright lied about the origins of Hurricane Ophelia to confuse and mislead the public. If that is a conspiracy coincidence, then who is really pushing a conspiracy here?
This is a critical question because The Sun published several observation images and videos from that day and the next on has another interesting Amber twist for this analysis.
The Sun and Amber Williamson
In it’s November 16, 2017, article, The Sun featured a stunning coastal observation image that happens to corroborate the same object of interest in the same region of the sky as the one Amber Williamson captured with her husband’s iPhone 7, on December 9, 2017.
This image published by The Sun, clearly corroborates Amber’s side-by-side comparison using her husband’s iPhone 7. This indicates that the variables in production, technology and user settings between her smartphone and her husband’s smartphone produced two equally credible observations of two different objects at the same time. If there is anything that proves how much of a difference the variables described can make, this is it. But wait, there’s more.
The Sun UK – 16-November-2017
Another image posted by The Sun in it’s November 16, 2017, article features this stunning view of the object of interest from somewhere in London.
With this, we now have a third object of interest to discuss in this article, which is a stunning image. It shows a third object of interest at the sun’s 1 o’clock position, relative to the horizon. One that is not corroborated by either of Amber’s side-by-side comparison videos. So, does that mean all of this is a bunch of easily dismissed lens flares? No.
The Sun UK and Lana From Tucson
On November 14, 2017, we posed a Planet X observation video on Youtube titled Planet X Nibiru – Multiple Objects and Observations from Tucson, AZ. It featured a series of videos captured by Lana, a young woman living in Tucson, Arizona. She uses an iPhone 5 and her videos begin on December 6, 2016, and go through November 1, 2017, in our Youtube program.
Like Amber, Lana has been tracking an object of interest, which happens to consistently appear in a different region of the sky. Above you see frames from two different observation videos captured by Lana on October 21, 2017, and October 26, 2017.
Like Amber, Lana’s videos are captured on different days with very different viewing conditions, but in both cases, each woman using a different version iPhone is getting consistent results.
With this, we’re not three for three. On November 16, 2017, three different objects of interest were seen in the sky with naked eye observations and reported in The Sun. All three have been corroborated by video observations made by Yowusa.com observers.
As to the one independent viral video of RodOfIron that was gaining a great deal of attention thanks to The Sun article, the result was that RodOfIron channel was terminated by Youtube without explanation. Further to that, the BBC so lacked in any modicum of science to debunk their observations; they had no other recourse than to fabricate an outright lie about the origins of Hurricane Ophelia to mislead and deceive the public.
While Apple executives may refrain from bragging about the series 5 and 7 iPhones used by Lana, Amber and Amber’s husband, this is a win in the Apple column that brings a stellar close to Planet X observations for 2017. So what comes next in 2018?
Rather than speculate let’s do the right thing by continuing to use our smartphones to help us spot global trends and patterns because while we can equivocate the granularities of smartphone variables, trends and patterns are like the pieces of a picture puzzle. They are small and mysterious on their own, but when they fit together, they tell a much bigger story.
