Well, I think the underside is white, and not mirrored, so it won't reflect the ground quite as well.
I forgot to say in my previous response to this post that, according the story, the UFO was described as being "shiny like a mirror" by the witness' friend and as a "silver disc" by the witness himself.
Sorry, I don't understand what you mean.
Not really, as the reflected light isn't going in the same direction as the direct light that is casting the shadow.

Keep in mind that description is just a rumour as to what it was like. He didn't actually see it himself he was just told that's what it was. Being in between jobs and having nothing to do the next day I made my way out there. (I'm not telling you how I was able to get there but I will say I walked a very long distance) as I got closer I could hear a helicopter so I peeked up over a hill and down in the small valley below sure enough I could see this silver disc out there. There were a few tan-colored trailers and other military vehicles on the North End of the valley. This thing would wobble along close to the ground very unstable. I don't believe anyone could have been riding on the inside but got the idea that helicopter was remotely controlling it.
At first I was too afraid to take any pictures but then it got really close to me so I started snapping some photos figuring that if I was going to be caught I might as well have some pictures. I also took a short video but then to save space on my camera I started deleting the blurry pictures. I spent maybe 10 minutes total watching this thing. I then turned around and got out of there as quickly as I could. I took my shirt off thinking the color of my skin would blend in with my surroundings better than the color of my white shirt. About halfway back I got scared and hid the camera in the desert.
And, as I said before, I don't think the reflections are right.

depends on brightness and contrast of the surrounding area brighter surroundings overrule darker objects
So IMO the reflections are right they oppress the darker objects in the area . if the there were more bushes or darker regions like say 60 percent it should have shown in your referential picture?
And BTW they guy who shot these photographs was taking them in a standing position I wonder why he said he was covering between the bushes naked to blend in the surrounding area?

To me the images scream fake. I dont have evidence for or against but at a glance the ufo just looks wrong and out of place. Like its been added.
Also im 99 percent sure military does not test that stuff in the daytime.

From your experience at the base, was there ever conducted tests and operations outside the base area? Did they ever go off the grounds, either deliberately or by accident?
If this is some not so secret kind of experimental LTA or drone, maybe they didn't really care that much if anyone saw it?
Or, is it feasible at all in your opinion, that even with stuff that is pretty secret, accidents and stupid mistakes happen?
Like testing this in a spot where it definitely should not have been?.
Just curious as to your input as to the context here.
