Gimbal UFO – What it really looks like
Jul 7, 2019
Dear viewer, Welcome to my detailed video – and image enhancement of the famous Gimbal UFO. Do not expect from me that I am going to describe the original video or the HUD display as has been done already. No I will only focus on showing you what this craft (UFO) really looks like. For the full story, mission details and more background information on the Gimbal UFO: Detailed info: https://coi.tothestarsacademy.com/gim… Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf1uL…
What I find interesting is why they released the video but not telling you what it looks like. I am doing this work for more than 25 years. It really surprises me that they have not released more details. Wouldn’t you say that by now they must know what they are up against?
It is pretty diffult to enhance any details from this video as the craft is located right in the centre of an overbright and high contrast region.
Part of the solution to make the craft visible I found in applying a 4 times iteration of CLAHE.
What is CLAHE? CLAHE stands for Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization.
This sounds complicated but it is in fact rather simple to explain. When you would use a Histogram Equalization (HE) filter on a video or photo, the software improves the background contrast of an entire photo. As long as you use a photo or video with very poor (dim) lighting conditions and one that does not have any (over)bright areas the filter does a perfect job. In the best cases you can see a lot more details in a dark photo.
The HE filter however completely fails when there is one or more areas of high brightness in the photo. When that is the case after applying HE the entire photo has become overbright and lots of details are lost. The reason for this is that HE works global (entire image) and therefore
the filter is not limited to a particular section of the image. Therefore HE does not work on the Gimbal video.
If we do not want the whole image to become overbright, Adaptive Histogram Equalization (AHE) is to be used instead.
In principle AHE works the same way as HE except that there is no global processing. With AHE the image is divided in smaller squares (tiles). In AHE mode each of these squares is histogram equalized separately and as the histogram is limited to a small section there is no overbrightness or trans border effect.
Unfortunately using the AHE filter also can have a negative effect when the image contains (too) much noise as its noise will also be amplified. To get rid of this noise another filter is used: Contrast Limitation (CL). By setting a threshold, the noise (pixels) is equalized and so the image stays (relatively) clean.
By applying CLAHE to an image, we see another side effect: small lines (squares). To fade these lines often a global bilinear interpolation filter is used.
So now you know what CLAHE is and its benefits over Histogram Equalization.
I have told you that PART of the solution was CLAHE. That is true. This video is recorded in the Infrared spectrum so I first had to recover the original colours using an IR to VIS(ual) / Ul(tra)V(iolet) spectrum filter. Having recovered (most of) the natural colours the next steps where basic processing; Stacking frames, curve filter, deblur, refocus, micro contrast enhancement for details and finally a tone mapper.
So what will you see in the final result?
1. The Gimbal UFO is neither saucer shape nor does it resamble a (real) triangle.
2. The UFO appears to have a minimum of three visible and perhaps more indiscernible propulsion systems.
3. Does it stop here? For now YES but I intend to show you every single part of this UFO so I am already working on a combination of new (mostly experimental) enhancement methods.
To be continued …
Enjoy this video that shows the Gimbal UFO as it really is. Did you ever imagine that it looked like ….
Part two will (hopefully) follow soon revealing alot more details.

Dear viewer, WAPTEK2 and other Youtubers question the genuineness of the Gimbal video material. They claim that it is CGI and that this was already proven on Above Top Secret and other forums. Well, anyone knows how I nowadays think about ATS. I was a member once, until I discovered what ATS really stands for. I can neither confirm nor deny that there indeed might be manipulated footage on the internet. Nowadays very clever CGI experts could replicate videos from top to bottom and add, remove or replace parts of a video almost unnoticed. Having said that: please note that in 2004 and even today with current known algorithms used to up- and downscale it is totally impossible to create a craft in CGI in a bigger size, compress it to 815 x 815 pixels (you will lose a lot of valuable data) and when you upscale the video (increase resolution through e.g. interpolation) retrieve not only very detailed (original) information but also the (original) colours.. This is physically not possible: period! For your information: The GIMBAL video was officially released by the Pentagon together with the 2004 FLIR1 video. These two videos are unrelated. The Gimbal UFO was filmed at the East Coast of the United States and at a till this day unknown date and the 2004 FLIR1 video at the West Coast. If there is any mentioning of CGI created videos back in 2004 it has been done for a specific reason. For my research I never use video material from the internet. My only sources are the operator (original film) or an official channel. The Gimbal UFO video used for the analysis comes from an official, therefore reliable und trustworthy source.
I dunno. This is the guy who did the vid on the one down under I posted about. The second vid of which had me leery. This one less so, but… I dunno about this guy.
This is a few years old now but some may not know about it.
These cities were vast and they all interconnected with roads. One of my favorite things about it is the recent idea that the immense Amazon rainforest itself is the result of the overgrowth of these people’s farms and gardens after their civilization collapsed. The idea came from the fact that the majority of flora in the Amazon are fruit-bearing. I love that…
UFO Videos From The Hudson Valley NewYork USA

UFO Videos From The Hudson Valley New York.
Oh dear. LOL, even.
I remember this guy. He had a lady partner in crime most of the time… gosh, Crystal something, I think. I had one of her books! Bought it from her in person at one of Mr. White’s UFO Cons somewhere north of New Haven, CT. I remember thinking that they were a bit out there. Well, more than a bit. And, hey, I was a bit credulous back then, I admit, so that might give you an idea of how out there I thought they were. I was in my late 20s, early 30s. We were all a bit woo, eh. But, really! Sigh.
Ah, well. The sightings at Pine Bush, NY, where these videos were probably taken, were quite numerous and some of them were probably anomalous happenings.
Or military from Stewart AFB, just a stone’s throw away.
Note that these three videos are most definitely not of the notorious Hudson Valley UFO, regardless of the location being in the Hudson Valley.
These are planes. At just before the 9 min mark it’s a C5 Galaxy, from or going to Stewart. The actual Hudson Valley sightings were quite awesome and of an enormous boomerang shaped thing moving low and slow. With dozens of people stopping on the highway to watch them.
Those were good times. Sightings worldwide were plentiful and excitingly bizarre. We don’t get those any more. It’s sad, really.
Maybe they’ll return one day, he said, longingly.
I will begin posting what I consider some of the best Blue Book cases. Out of the 12,000+ cases there are a few hundred that have sufficient information and good quality witnesses that I would categorize them as excellent cases.
The very first case is of course the Kenneth Arnold case of June 24, 1947. This case is well known and you can find plenty of well written articles that analyze this sighting. Something that might interest you is an interview with him from long ago.
Well, now, this is very cool to listen to the real story, right from the horse’s mouth.
Exclusive New York City “UFO” Footage
Oct 15, 2010
CBS News obtained footage of mysterious glowing orbs floating over New York City which some are calling UFOs.
Interesting that this was on CBS, but the big guns only sometimes show this type of thing.
If not balloons… who knows, eh? YMMV.
2019 REAL UFO SIGHTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sep 28, 2019
Red-flagged as “mighty freakin’ short.” Besides for the title, of course.
Seriously, now, if you saw something like that in your immediate proximity, wouldn’t you film it for a bit longer than a half a minute? Maybe till it went away? That says fake to me.
Fleet of mysterious lights appear above sea near North Carolina filmed from a ferry
William Guy was on a ferry traveling from Ocracoke Village to Swan Quarters North Carolina on September 18, 2019 when he noticed a fleet of strange bright lights in the sky on which he started to record the strange event.
William said that that there were about 25 people on the ferry with him that have seen it too and they also recorded the fleet of lights and none has ever seen it before.
We may assume that these lights are not flares since no source can be found in the entire area that may have fired flares.
What could these lights have been?
There were 25 people with him, he says. Why aren’t there any other videos of these lights?
Abandoned by W. Wilson.
Learn the historical facts about her fate.
Hey, folks, here’s a neat old sawsir case from the year of my birf!

B-25 bomber Encounters UFO over Alabama 1955
Video Segment – KTLA UFO Cover Up Live Oct 15 1988 Pt 3 of 18
Coleman spoke about a UFO sighting he had experienced while a bomber pilot in 1955. The plane closed to within an eighth of a mile of the disc-shaped object. “It was about 60 feet in diameter and 10 or 11 feet thick through the center,” he said. “It had what looked like a titanium-type finish.” (silver gray).
An eighth of a mile! Whoa, man, … That’s just a bit more than walkin’ down to the deli… gosh, even my damaged eyes could see that, eh!
