A UFO Photo you might like to see:

Kevin Randle mentions this sighting with photo at his blog....but offers no photo.

This photo comes from ProjectParanormal.org

A listing of the sighting also appears in a NICAP archive:

http://www.nicap.org/GSID_ByCat.htm

Kevin relates how the Air Force proclaimed the photo a hoax but J. Allen Hynek demmured.

The photo is one typical of those from the time-frame and just before it.

  • I've always felt that these types of photos were fakes. There are a series of them appearing around the same time frame. I think from the 50s thru the mid 60s.
    I just err on the side of caution. They are all posed in odd positions as if tossed or hanging from something. Plus none of them look quite the same. They are all a little bit different too. Which one would wonder how many different models these aliens are flying around in.
    Anyhow, I don't fully write them off, I try to keep an open mind but I definitely lean towards the hoax category. I don't know, maybe I'm getting a little skepti-itis.

    Tell us RR what is special about this photo compared to the others which have been mostly proven to be hoaxes?

  • Kevin has had problems posting photos for some time.

    I love how 99% of old timey UFO photos are on some kind of a slant that strongly suggests they were tossed into the air like a frisbee. UFO believers could disprove this theory by tossing saucer models into the air and taking pics of them not flying all slanty. (If MUFON has already published this study, please let me know!)

    Now that I think of it, has there ever been one UFO photo that clearly shows the retractable landing gear or downward extending ladders we read so much about in old reports?

    In a related matter, Rich, my research shows that some aliens do in fact drive cars while on the surface of a planet. Today, during the Target Canada liquidation sale, I picked up a small-scale replica of Darth Vader's sleek wheels:

    There is even video! (Call Bill Birnes!)

  • A dead heat on a merry go round drilling itself into the ground.

  • "99% of old timey UFO photos are on some kind of a slant"

    Yeah, they're slanted! (g)

    It's convention. Blame Trent. It's difficult to photograph an object perfectly horizontal when it's dangling by thread. There's almost always going to be a random angle, but preferably left side (tail) up suggesting motion to the right — forward — and up, another convention. (Some early flying saucers had a front to rear, usually fins, orientation.)

    If the left side happens to be up — depending on the story — the flying saucer is exiting "stage left" or is going right but braking! (g)

    Again, it's visual, theatrical, cinematic convention, based in the relative physical directions of the egocentric coordinate system.

    A switch turns right to "On." It's the logical structure of our Cartesian reality, relative to being human on the "horizontal" surface of a planet. (g)

    Another cinematic convention is that things on an angle are not quite right, are out of balance psychologically, supernatural! I would say that this "angle" was making too much of the idea, but the Billy Meier pictures come to mind. They're decidedly not angled. They're all so perfectly horizontal, serene, against green mountains and perfect blue sky, icons of pure belief. But they're not convincing, they're sterile and not at all on the level. (g)

    Given that they're flying saucers, it's odd that Billy's saucers are not in motion, a la Trent, so they look fake! Poor Billy and his fake Saucer Jesus, going nowhere.

  • Zoam:

    Don't bait those Meier believers.

    We have enough problems with the Roswellians.

  • I don't count the Meier photos. Those are just silly.

    Martin Kottmeyer answered my question: the 1967 Yorba Linda photo shows landing legs.

    Neat photo. But it was taken through a window from inside a house. It looks to me like the "object" is actually stuck on the glass pane, as in the video I made a few years back.

    I wouldn't be so sure, Terry. I think "it" just landed on my work table!

  • KR posted a link to three of the four photos.

    They appear much lighter than the one posted here, as if it has been contrast enhanced.

    They also appear to be ALL THE SAME! Or very much so.

    If this is the case, it's no wonder that the AF dismissed this "flying saucer" story as a hoax:

    Even it is angled — very much like Trent's hoax — this flying saucer isn't flying!

    If only we could read the alien writing on the hull!

  • Observations and sightings by individuals are of more importance to me than a photo or film of an object. I've always wanted to see a SR71 Blackbird , I've seen dozens of photos and films. But having a pilot, support crew member or a designing engineer talk about the craft is so valuable to me to understand it!
