FosterVS sent me a link to a Facebook page of ripped off photographs. None of them mine. I don't know if I should be happy or insulted.

On the page is a link to an alleged Area 51 anti-gravity test done in 1989.

I don't see a way to embed youtube video on the ATS month mobile view, so I posted the link.

Now the most obvious epic failure in the fake video is the triangular tower. I think that showed up around 2007. The triangular tower is key to this analysis since it forms a sun dial. Look at the shadow of the triangular tower then compare it to Paul Wilson's panorama.

Looks like a match to me.

Now for the audio. Serious eye rolling required. If you listen to military shortwave, generally 11175 USB, the audio is an EAM (Emergency Action Message).

This has nothing to do with flight testing.
Sample EAM.

I don't know how you do the shacky camera thing using a panorama as a base.

There is a fake youtube video of Janets landing at Groom Lake. What the person did was take actual scsnner audio of Groom tower (stolen from my website) with video shot of Janets landing at KLAS. I laughed my arse off.

Here is the video. Very strange but something looks off about the lights...

I was following that Facebook page, no longer. It's basically a copy and paste of anything Area 51 related, mostly ATS and DLR posts, which is fine. Problem I have is everything on there should be credited back to its source, which none of it seems to be.

I saw that fake Area 51 video on Youtube a while back, and commented then that the triangular tower wasn't constructed til long after the fake timestamp. If you look at the perspectives of buildings etc. in that video, it looks like someone just made a video pointed at a panorama picture of Area 51.

I think the resolution is too high to be of a print of Paul Wilson's panorama. Maybe they hold a camera to a monitor?

I very sure it is Paul's panorama. He is the only person doing these Groom Lake panorama where he attempts to "field flatten" each individual image. Telescopes have more light loss as you go from the center towards the edge. You can compensate for this in the photo editor. Then you have the light change from frame to frame. Some panorama software can compensate for both problems. Anyway my point is there are only two sources of imagery done to that level on the internet. (Trevor Paglen also does this compensation, but he doesn't upload the panoramas.)

After reviewing my own panoramas and not finding a match to the triangular tower shadow, I checked Dreamland Resort and found that match.

I missed that.
Good catch.

Since I use a refractor telescope nowadays, I don't have a lot of darkening at the edges. (Reflectors are terrible for doing panoramas.) But I didn't adjust the frame to frame exposure very well. If you panned this one, it would be obvious that the "video" is a fake.

You can still see the division between frames in my last panorama.

What happens is when I crank up the contrast, the nuances of the lighting become more obvious. Due to the time delay between frames, the sun has moved as well as clouds. You can adjust the overall brightness between adjacent frames, but not every section along the edge will have the same illumination.

Considering the grainy, choppy, and shakiness of that video, it would be hard to detect frame edges anyways.

Spot on, I think you nailed it. Someone convince me otherwise that they didn't use Paul Wilson's panorama. Like you said, the shadow from that tower, the direction the dishes are pointing, reflections, etc.

You can make something akin to this video in about 10 minutes using Adobe's After Effects. Super easy to do.
