Just fiddling around. Blue Book couldn't identify it. But there does seem to be quite a similarity, including the sequence of colors.

Similar but most likely not what was seen, Milton Bradley’s Simon was released in 1978.

Edit: I just realized that’s not Simon, what is that?

Hi mate there's some good info in this vid about that object - looks like it was taken from a painting by Clovis Trouille.


See 5:00

That is, for myself, a much more realistic representation of an alien invader than those goofy cgi gimps Spielberg gave us.
If they had just killed Tom Cruise in the first 5 minutes and rolled the credits it would have been a masterpiece.

I remember those and they always reminded me of UFOs. I think they did for a lot of us. The whole light-changing vibe was even like some Close Encounter of the First Kind lol.

So wouldn't be surprised to find one at the center of a hoax.

But that is a remote probe and not one of the aliens. This is the alien.



I was hoping for Tom Cruise to be stepped on as he was unworthy of the heat ray.

Farewell Thunderchild.

Dang, what kind of probe is that? I definitely don't want that one Mr. Grey.

This just in. Humans capture probe camera and learn how it works.


It's just a camera to see where the flying ships can’t go.

Human attacks alien while it is trying to make friends.


If you set the potato really badly, you might get a photo approximating the one in the OP from the probe or the alien.
The Christmas light wheel is still a much better match.

Yup, the 1949 painting, 'The Red Poet'. Here it is in all its glory...




As shown in the video you provided, even the two 'antennae' are visible in the painting.

Perhaps the designer of the alien drone and eyes for George Pal's 'The War Of The Worlds' (1953) four years later should have credited Trouille, too.

Mind you, if Trouille had painted an alien, you can guarantee it would have been wearing stockings and suspenders! An 'acquired taste' is the best label for his work. Gimme Dali any day.

My only question is how the kid who took the picture in the first place managed to get it so dark that it only shows the wheel and only part of it. No tree reflection, nothing else with any light. I guess if he cranked the exposure way down it might work. Or if he hung it from a wire against a starless night sky. That would depend on if it was a purposeful hoax or just a bad Christmas photo he decided to have fun with.

Hola mate thanks for posting the relevant painting and your not wrong about those stockings and suspenders.


You don't really see that many UFO descriptions involving antenna but was reminded of this other Bluebook one - the Tulsa pic also ended up here on Michael Sword's blog and have always been intrigued by that one from Peru in 1952.

Farewell Thunderchild. Now I know why I don't eat meat loaf and play Simon at the same time.

Wow, that's it. The kid must have taken a photo of that painting?
That famous photo might be a hoax, but there actually was a huge UFO flap in Oklahoma occurring during the time it was taken. My father and a friend of mine both had amazing sightings in the summer and fall of 1965.
Here is an article on the flap:
