Nowhere in the report on the CEFAA site does it mention that the photos were taken from inside a vehicle or building.
No. And they didn't bother to find out. Not much of a report, is it? They say that the witnesses claim it was taken outside but make no effort to
verify that or identify the exact location.
This is a working strip mine, they are at work, outside, they are not going to take an hour or more to take pictures on the boss's dime. That
takes care of the duration the photos were taken.
Except that they claim to have been watching it for between one and two hours. If they were watching for that long, why not take photos?
So, one of them had a camera and being in a dusty, strip mine environment, it had some crud on the lens. That explains the dark blobs on the
The photos show the background, i. e.; the context of the photos, which is de rigueur when taking shots of UAP.
Which allowed another poster to pinpoint the location. It is on a vehicle track in a dump area some distance from the main mine site, which to my mind
makes it pretty likely the photos were taken from a vehicle.
Object exhibits self-illumination quite evident on the bottom of the object even though the sun is almost directly overhead.
No, that is exactly what you would see if an object being lit from above was reflected in the windscreen: it would appear to be lit from below. Why
reach for extraordinary conclusions when the simple one fits?
Object is not a reflection from being taken indoors or in a vehicle else that datum would be known.
Why would it be known if the photo was taken in a vehicle but not known if it was taken outside? We don't know one way or the other but we do know it
was taken from a vehicle track in an area you would have to reach by vehicle.
It's a bright, self-illuminated disk shape that appears to be solid, that makes vertical and horizontal maneuvers while hovering soundlessly
for more than an hour above a strip mine in a cloudless, very clear sky at 14,000 ft. altitude.
That's a hell of a lot of conclusions from four still photos!
Self-illuminated? No, see above.
Solid? No, it appears to be translucent, like a reflection.
Vertical and horizontal manoeuvres? No evidence for that. All I see is a reflection that has moved. How do you account for the changed shape?
Soundless? How can you tell from a photo? And even if so, reflections don't make much noise.
More than an hour? Again, what is the evidence? The photos span a period of three minutes.
As far as UFO photos go these are total garbage. Anyone who takes ufology seriously should be embarrassed by stuff like this.
