Also im 99 percent sure military does not test that stuff in the daytime.
Again, I'm not trying to prove the thing is real. I'm just looking at the photos. If they are fake, then somebody went to a lot of trouble to create four different photos, each from a slight different perspective, and Photoshopped in a 3-D model or CGI, making sure all the colors and shadows and reflections were aligned within reason (or at least our ability to tell with our limited photo analysis skills and tools). Seems like a lot of trouble for something that is unlikely to have a satisfying explanation either way.

this is one of the worst "ufo" pictures i have ever seen, where do i even start?
1: wrong lighting on the ufo
2: ufo litterally looks like it was glued into the picture
3: ufo looks like two metal baskets glued togheter with duct tape
4: the shadow is just an mark in the ground
in my humble opinion, that ufo is going up mr. bradshawn ass

The Sun being almost overhead is irrelevant for what I was saying, as I was comparing the way the light shines on the helicopter and on the UFO but not how high or low it was, I was talking about the direction from which the light is shinning on both objects.
If the UFO has a circular shape when seen from above (as it appears) then the position of the reflection of the Sun on the UFO points to the Sun being behind the camera and slightly to the right, while the reflection of the Sun in the helicopter's windshield points to the Sun being to the right of the camera, slightly in front of the camera.
UFO and light direction.
Helicopter and light direction.
Another thing I noticed was that it looks like the most visible shadow of a plant branch points to the Sun being in the same position as for the helicopter, as you can see below, in the area marked with a yellow circunferance.
One last thing: if the UFO is so shiny it should reflect the ground, and, when that close to the ground, even if it wasn't shiny, it shouldn't appear so bright on the underside, as not only that kind of vegetation absorbs a lot of light but also reflects almost nothing (vegetation is made to absorb light, not to reflect it).

The last photo of it furthest away shows the shadow on the sagebrush on the hill on the other side of the power lines. However the object looks on this side of the power lines, the shadow and object are way off, unless it magically got Yuuuge in the last frame.

Give me a couple of hours and I reproduce I sort like picture using a 3d model in zbrush render that through keyshot with a HDRI background and you never know if it's real or not.

if the sun is behind the camera, which it looks to me like it is then the shadow would show further away

I suspect it’s a bs story. In my experience I’d get that close to authorities or military who are doing anything special they’ll arrest you, take your stuff, press charges and wreck your entire life.
