    Default Question

    Came across this question on another forum:

    This is a crop of a zoom photo I took of Mt. Washington from the summit of South Baldface today. What are the three bright white chevron shaped things below the summit parking lots? (they didn't move)

    Anyone?

    The photo was taken at 11:51 AM. So, here is the Ravines image at 11:15 AM with no objects.



    And the objects are in the 11:30 AM image.



    At 1:00 PM there was just one object visible. In the 1:15 PM image they were gone.

    Default Flying

    I think that Rich is right. That they were some sort of flying machines, whether hang gliders or ultralights I'm not sure. Usually they're more colorful, but who knows.

    I noticed the temp was around 65 and the wind 5mph at 3PM on the summit. Perfect flying weather!
