Volunteering Opportunity 1-Modeling of Enigmatic "Falling Leaf" UAP and UFO Motions
Volunteers donate their work gratis done on their own time in the interest of solving the UFO/UAP enigma. Such work or inputs will be initially published on this website if mutually agreeable, free to the public. Your authorship of your original work will be indicated but is not required if you so choose. Any person or party quoting or paraphrasing the website's explanations are expected to credit the author(s) and this website. Volunteer opportunities are listed below along with the anticipated focus of their gratis work or inputs.
Why have UAP/UFOs done the "Falling Leaf" motion for as long as records have been kept?
A volunteer to do some computer modeling is desired to at-least test the below proposed explanation and possibly generate a better one if that is possible. The modeler should have a physics, science or appropriate engineering background and substantial experience using software such as COMSOL Multiphysics (TM) which can model two or more properties that simultaneously vary and are codependent (such as the imposition of a force field and the response of a surrounding medium). You will, if you approve, be listed as an author of the explanation. You may, if you desire, mention the software vendor and the software product(s) you employed.
Initial explanation for modeling (J.S.): UAP/UFOs appear to employ a force field which counteracts gravity and provides movement thrust. This does not require that the UAP mass goes to zero as is often proposed. It is suggested that the downward levitating force field causes a pressure reduction immediately and further below the UAP resulting in a significant and new negative buoyancy component for the UAP. One way to minimize this effect would be to swing the craft (Falling Leaf Motion) at a rate as fast or preferably somewhat faster than that required to fully develop the pressure reduction. It is also likely that the known pendulum motion is for the same reason however in the pendulum cases the UAP, if hovering, is minimizing the buoyancy loss to maximize potential (if needed) upward net thrust whereas if the UAP is about to climb it is also minimizing buoyancy loss to maximize intended upward acceleration. Witnesses have noted downward flowing and/or cooler air beneath disk type UAPs when hovering and climbing which is clear evidence of such depressurization being partially or mostly avoided.
Addendum#1. Mufon case#76542 in 2016 had a South Carolina woman saw a red orb doing a falling leaf descent in her yard. The phenomenon continues.
Addendum#2 from snippets: Originally added: 01/26/21 from the book "Night Siege" By Hynek et al (page 19). On 02/26/83 a Hudson Valley 200 foot plus boomerang or triangle had numerous small flashing edge lights plus a single very bright center light. It made pendulum motions like much earlier flying-disc saucers. I propose that this BOTH minimizes thrust requirements for the triangles corner orientation thrusters AND (probably more importantly) serves to clean angel hair from the thrusters-possibly to prevent thruster overheating. (see angel hair part b photo of A.H. at corner thrusters of Petit-Rechain Triangle UAP). To also be noted is that any central levitation engine on the triangle would also benefit the same two ways. The central levitator, presuming it is a much larger levitator (thruster), is dimmer because it is so large it operates at lower power/inch2 thus intrinsically minimizing A.H. formation.
Addendum#3 from snippets: Originally added 01/26/21 from the book "Flying Saucers-Here And Now" by F. Edwards. (page 107) Report from Indiana in 1966 wherein a father and son driving saw a UFO take several low passes over their car in the total darkness and then saw the UFO do a "falling-leaf" motion in their headlight beams just before its shooting straight up. An excellent example of maximizing the needed soon intended upward thrust per the above.
