1: If you could upload a photo of one of the iterations to compare it will be appreciated.
2: This photo has been put through the debunking mill and it has passed all tests and is deemed real. If you can find irrefutable proof for your comments, it will be a big help.
3: Photograph of giraffe taken at Plymouth Zoo, Devon, in 1972 by Wilfred Power, who saw nothing in the sky at the time.

That doesn't look like a human, no details, and when you really look at the photo the figure is approximately 50-75 feet behind the girl. It is a tall figure. The mother is not shown in the photos because "Other than his wife, Annie, and two pensioners sat in a car,". "Film company Kodak said the same and even offered a reward to anyone who could prove the photo was faked. It was never claimed."

Hi Greazel,

I was talking about noraKat's post.
Anyone who investigated battle for LA knows that it was a complexe historical context and people were in a state of fear. I don't remember exactly but the guy who raised the alarm was a bit inconsistent after investigation. It might have been one of these moment of high paranoia "I'm sure I saw something there in the dark just shoot".
Maybe all the smoke from the rounds and the light beams focusing kept the show going for a wile...
But the truth is unfortunately I wasn't there to witness

Someday I hope )))

On the contrary, the new technologies: ultra-zoom cameras and camcorders some with infra-red features, cell phones with higher megapixel cameras (41X!) allowed us to bring the unknown within our eyesight. The eyes didn't get better, the sightings increased, the craft or whatever they are, were captured in greater detail. But for some reason, the amount of UFOs increased from a few here and there to almost complete planet coverage. And some areas seem to have become "hotspots" such as Mexico



an increase in digital cameras and a decrease in knowledge about the technology is what leads to so many UFOs being pout on youtube.


This has been demonstrated numerous times with numerous different subjects over the last few years.


great example is Nibiru sightings and people capturing sun-dogs or simply having lens flares on pics and they thought they took a pic of a fictional planet.


How many times has Venus been mistaken for a UFO in both photo and video when zooming in and creating the diamond effect?


Its ignorance that creates an increase in UFO videos and pictures using newer technology.

Um the last 2 pics in your OP, the family and hula dancers are most likely blirds.


Ignorance is not realizing the scenery and how logical it is that bird may be flying by.

I like these taken from a submarine. Its just so weird:







OH WOW! I love the ones over water, makes you wonder where they came from or where they are going. I think there is a pretty extensive thread on here about USO's. I will have to look for it.

Where did you get these pics?

What amazes me is that we don’t have any modern pictures coming in. Mostly everyone in the western world has a smart phone in their pocket with a camera better thank anything available back in those days. Has our planner became so stupid that they stopped visting. Or is it because we haven’t tested nukes and looked like we are going to blow up the plannet.

PMSL at your explanation of the first picture. That "scratch" has light and shadow form...as you say, Google is your friend, so please provide the Google links and prove your statement.

Ditto for numbers 2 and 3.

It's always useful to actually read the whole thread for answers to questions like this.

When UFO's looked like UFOs


Well, they still do. In between the photos I chose were other shapes, primarily elongated craft. There are some great photos from the same periods of the above but you cold tell that hoaxing was beginning to take hold and so the photos could not be trusted. The ones I selected were taken innocently enough, or so they seem. Ir order for photos to be accepted you have to trust the photographer and the circumstances. Some photos that do not show UFOs but seem to be associated because of what's seen in the photo such as The Solway Firth Spaceman


Much has been made about this photo with some claiming a successful debunking while offering gibberish, others say that a camera cannot capture the invisible, some say it's the girl's mother. I don't know. I see a white figure that seems to have its back to the camera using the right arm resting on its waist as reference.

Now the variety of shapes don't always show UFOs but bizarre shapes but they're still unidentified flying objects. Such as this flying "humanoid" which has me baffled as well as similar images.

Give me the good ol' flying saucers!


Never understood why this photo ever got any traction? Looks like the back of somebody old's head and back with their arm on their hip. Maybe stretching? White hair white sweater.

I read the post you linked.
The FOIA document related to what the sub was doing in the Arctic was quoted as saying:
"... extensive testing was accomplished which provided valuable data for new and improved weapons systems."

I agree with one of the commenters who offered a very clear response to blackvault's findings and I'm convinced that what we're seeing could be actual photos of an unidentified craft thrown in the mix with actual photos of a weapons test to muddy the waters (no pun intended). They are clearly different objects.

It would be necessary to log such an encounter. What better way to both acknowledge the event, and, also not say anything about it, than by logging what was quoted in the FOIA document? For all we know the 'data' gathered was that they were able to spot and track an unidentified craft that new and improved weapons systems couldn't tackle, or that new and improved weapons systems would be needed in light of what they witnessed?

I'm happy to reconsider if anyone can link me to untethered target blimps, with no stabilizers, that look anything like what's pictured.
I also encourage everyone to follow your link to that thread as the rebuttals have just as much information and it's a great read, thanks!
