I usually refrain from posting too many debunkings in a row, but what can I do? In the past few days dubious images have been raining, and some ordinary investigations are due.
The image above was sent by Daniel, February 6, 2009, to Dirk Vander Ploeg from UFO Digest. According to Ploeg:
“The majority of the evidence, including photographic evidence and testimonies from present and past air force personnel makes me believe the object photographed by Daniel is a B-2 Stealth transporting a Drone similar to the SR-71 Blackbird.”
Daniel “describes the object as being black and very shiny with a surface similar to glass. ‘You can see the glass reflecting off of it. The pink circular pattern in the sky was only there for 10 seconds or so’, he said”.
For my part, I think those reflections are exactly what are strange here. In the enhanced close-up below, by Bruce Jessop (see the original link in UfoDigest), pay special attention to the ‘orb” like reflection on the right:
From the little I know, those light artifacts usually only show up in objects heavily out of focus. And the glaringly obvious inconsistency here is that all distant objects, from the trees to the clouds, are in focus. Except for the UFO.
If the blurring was due to extreme speed, it would be seen in the direction of the movement. It’s rather uniform around the UFO. The UFO is quite simply out of focus when all the distant objects are in focus.
That would add to the evidence that it could be actually a small, shiny, model near the camera, explaining that strange orb on the right.
Do you disagree? Feel free to correct me. I may be wrong, of course. Jason “Naveed” Westby thinks it’s a bird.
