UAP Tracker Project FAQs

  • UAP Tracker Project features a live stream on YouTube watching the skies for anomalous events. The stream normally lasts 12 hours (eg 7am to 7pm French time).  Due to YouTube restrictions the maximum length for a continuous live stream and the video being saved is 12 hours.  

  • UAP Tracker aims to inspire more people to set up a basic camera to observe the sky by featuring the recommended camera and software in use on the live stream. In addition to the live stream 'setup guides' are also provided for the Reolink and Dahau cameras, passive forward scatter radar and additional hardware / software.
