The Story Behind the Anomaly 1707

On a December Sunday afternoon in 2021, I was amidst my hobby at home, pointing my camera (with a super-zoom bridge) at different mountain zones opened in front of my eyes. In the attached photo, you can appreciate the panoramic view and ambiance within those moments.

Absorbed by the good takes, from the corner of my eye, I was able to visualize something approaching at an incredible speed from the south (right from the mountain). It quickly adjusted the zoom ring to the maximum capacity, and I realized it wasn’t an airplane or a bird. I followed its trajectory, managed to focus on it, and did another shoot. I required a few endless seconds to recover the control, and I managed to focus the image again, and I shot again. I achieved four pics.

The summit is 11 kilometers in a straight line from my window. Because of the distance, a clearer picture wasn’t possible to obtain, as you can see in the right-side zoomed images.

Finally, that day I got genuine evidence of what I saw. So, I analyzed the information and detected that the object in the last picture was going at a fantastic 960 km/h speed.
I had the original information in the metatags generated by the camera for each photo. I had the exact time between the pictures. The book provides more details about the formula, and now I can tell you it was accurate and thorough, with verifiable information about the traveled route. (It was the variable I needed to calculate the velocity in each span).

As a following act, I asked myself what to do with these findings, so I went to the website of a government entity dedicated to these events. They took months to answer me, even more than usual. In one of the dialogues with the analyst that processed my case, he concluded that it was a drifting balloon atop the mountain. I argued it wasn’t possible as the object’s speed was beyond 900 km/h because “the strongest registered wind in the planet had only been 372 km/h.”

I couldn’t convince them. “Winds of 960 km/h… It cannot be!” I told myself. At that precise moment, I decided to create a story surrounding this event to share with you. And wow, it was a fun journey. I took the liberty of placing the events in California as it seemed more attractive for a story. So, I included agencies such as the FBI, CIA, and NSA. More interesting characters!

Today an editorial was interested in publishing my novel: finally, I can share my adventure with all of you who enjoy action, suspense, and science fiction tales with adventures, mysteries, hypotheses, and scientific explanations, ah… and it is not missing love nor fun and exciting situations. I confess I cried and laughed out loud for a lot of paragraphs. I hope you can enjoy it once it’s published. I’ll keep you posted.

Now I will start with another journey, with another veridic event I witnessed. You can check the blog on this website to check updates I’ll leave for you and open space for your comments, help, and suggestions.

I leave you all with a warm hug. If you read until here, I am forever grateful.
