Hi!

(I found a number of email addresses and was not sure which you checked most, so I just played it safe and sent to all of them. I hope this is okay! ^_^)

My name is Jenna and I participate in a listserv for photographers in Saratoga, CA. Today a member named Stephen posted some pictures he took yesterday (the 5th) for a class assignment in the area around Big Basin. The pictures very clearly depict some kind of large object in the sky, and he was able to get two clear shots and one out-of-focus shot before it apparently disappeared. I recognized certain details on this object immediately because a friend had sent me your About.com article on different UFOs that have appeared recently with a similar appearance.

Now, I should mention that this is a private listserv for a very close-knit group. I have met almost everyone that participates in person and I have met Stephen in particular many times, so I take his word seriously.

We have been discussing it for the last couple of hours and I suggested we start by sending pictures to your website since you clearly have some familiarity with this situation so far. Unfortunately I'm not a moderator of this listserv and can't give you access, but I can send you copies of the discussion as it develops if you would like to stay abreast. Let me know.

Stephen has given me permission to contact you with his photos and information and you may email him directly if you wish. We don't have any special need for anonymity on this matter and if you would like to post this email along with the photos you may do so. I would be interested in hearing from the other photographers of this kind of craft in particular and seeing what this is all about! ^_^

The following is his first listserv email which was sent earlier this afternoon:

hey guys

okay, where to begin -- yesterday i was up around big basin for my assignment like ive been mentioning for the last couple weeks -- the theme for those that dont remember was photographing something at a small scale against a large scale backdrop to contrast scales and to play with depth of field etc -- i chose to photograph a couple of flower/weed things growing right on the edge of a dropoff with the valley in the background -- i'm still using the rebel xt i bought off mark which is slr so im looking at everything through a viewfinder when i notice something _appear_ in the distance, like just pop out of nowhere -- i look up and there is this _huge_ friggen who-knows-what-the-sexual intercourse _floating_ in the distance and rotating very slowly and jerkily (is that a word lol) -- almost by reflex i take another shot which is focused in on it this time and go to stand up but practically fall over beacuse i cant even think straight -- i was able to get one more shot which came out kinda blurred and then the thing _vanished_ -- like, as in, now you see it now you dont -- i attached the pictures so you guys can check them out before i really decide to do something with them -- are these going to the 6 oclock news or what -- any feedback would be great before i make a major decision here -- also btw i attached three pictures the first is when it _first_ appeared right as i was taking a shot of the flowers but i wanted you guys to see everything i saw -- sorry i only got 3 pix but this thing was seriously gone in like a matter of secs

also btw -- i am planning to return to the area this weekend with the camera and anyone else who wants to join me -- im seriously going to spend all day hiking around to see if it shows up again if it does i am going to get a million shots of this thing if it does -- you seriously have to see it to even believe it so _anyone_ who wants to come me let me know -- the more people that see this the better beacuse i dont even need to tell you that so far this is a pretty crazy situation and i want some witnesses to back me up

Hi there!

The webmaster of UFO casebook let me know that you are a writer and wanted to discuss things with me and probably Stephen. He's the best one to speak with of course since he was there. ^_^

He is happy to speak to you, in fact I have become more involved in this than I probably should be since I was really just trying to pass him along to the right people. His email is shutterthug99@hotmail.com. You two have a lot to discuss I'm sure!

I have forwarded the original email I sent to UFO casebook to you in case it is helpful for your writing.

Jenna
