Exactly...so how would you know those sharp edges and perfect contours aren't an artifact of the digitalisation process?

Peace

It's called "edge enhancement" or " unsharp mask"



Some devices do it automatically to improve the image you are copying...

I always like when the witness gets more than one photo. Here's a cross-eyed stereo 3-D pair made from the photos:


I don't think it shows much, other than maybe the thing didn't change shape much or at all between the two images, and possibly shows that it does have some depth and roundness to it, rather than just being a diffuse shape. Probably a cloud.

P.S. -- The center disc portion of the thing seems to be semi-transparent, which could either be an indicator that it's a cloud, or that center disc was just that way for whatever crazy alien engineering reason.

And was every other picture you looked at from 1940, taken from inside a plane looking down?

With old pictures black fades, whites go to grey...there is no way of telling what you are seeing is either.

Best assumption is a cloud.

Peace

If we assume that the photographer is looking down and the darker area we see is maybe coastline/sea, then does that make the cloud orientated side-on to the ground? That in itself would be unusual.

nothing sure on the exact orientation as it is even asked in the video "if that's forest / the coastline in the background" to which the poster replies that they are clouds. His grandfather was on a military plane over iceland during WWII when he took the pictures.



Peace

If you have never learned how Neutral Dimension Craft operate then you have pre-conditioned ideas about what a flying craft should look like....especially the wings......once you accept that the closest idology we have to compare ND Craft function to is the MAGNETIC CONCEPT(although that is not exactly correct).... then you can lean on that....knowing it operates magnetically you now know it doesn't need wings.....this means that ANY SHAPE CAN BE A VIABLE CRAFT.....a Pyramid...a HotRod Race Car style....a Star Wars fighter style...a Saucer of any type ...a simple large chunk of granite in its natural shape..….anything .....except a lenticular cloud formation…..lol.

I am still not saying this is 100% for sure a Craft....I am saying it is in the realm of possibility of being a Craft.

Wether or not its a Craft or a Cloud....Craft come in all shapes and sizes...including but not limited to Saucer shapes.

I could have debunked this as a ten year old thanks to a book my old man gave me.

As has been said, there's no doubt that the images show lenticular clouds, none.

A cursory search of the terms 'ufo's debunked lenticular clouds' will provide all the information one needs.

Just a couple of examples;

'Texans keep reporting clouds as UFOs; more than 56 reports in past month'


Circular clouds that pop up out of nowhere and disappear just as fast apparently have a lot of people believing in UFOs.

A spate of sightings late last month stirred some alarm -- "Woah! (sic) The sky over Texas appears to be FILLED with UFOs!" someone exclaimed on Twitter -- but reason prevailed as meteorologists and other scientific types debunked the flying saucer theory.

...In the past month, Gray said he had received 56 reports of possible UFO sightings in Texas. "People think they've got something, and they don't have anything."

'Lenticular clouds look like UFOs'


Here are some glorious photos of rare lenticular clouds, sometimes called UFO clouds, plus a word about how they form.


Linky


''UFO Clouds' Are Real. Here's How They Happen'


Social media users in Cape Town, South Africa, posted photos over the weekend that call to mind classic alien invasion movies. The pictures feature eerie, saucer-shaped puffs that seem to hang over the sky like UFOs. But these so-called “UFO clouds” are nothing to fear.

Meteorologists call them lenticular clouds, which form when strong, moist winds blow over rough terrain, such as mountains or valleys. Picturesque Cape Town is framed by such features, including the 3,500-foot (1,066-meter) Table Mountain.

...A number of past reports of UFO sightings have been linked to lenticular clouds, which can form in many places around the world. (Other UFO sightings have been attributed to hole-punch clouds, which are formed by miniature snowstorms in thin, subfreezing cloud layers.)


NatGeo

I've seen things in the sky that I can't explain, unfortunately this isn't one of those things.



None of those clouds look like UFO's after a look. The UFO presented here does not look like any of those clouds either. However you can't rule out a toy either.

Look we all want to believe and it's great to be openminded and the pictures provided so far might not convince you but does this look like a cloud?


It doesn't..but it is.

To find exactly the same as in the OP is like finding...well...two of the same clouds.

a reply to: operation mindcrime Well that's the closest yet. Without the color it may look less like cloud. I'm still completely unconvinced. That cloud is not nearly as symmetrical, it does not display the sharp edges, and it does not not account for the strange coloring. It still looks like a cloud. I'd be more likely to believe the object is a prop designed to look like a flying saucer. But who knows.

That’s no cloud that’s a UFO.

a reply to: mtnshredder So if it's a cloud please explain the odd features of this cloud. Why does this object appear to be reflective? Why is there an oddly colored ring in the center that doesn't appear to be caused by shadows? Why is the object symmetrical? Why are there such sharp edges that do not appear like the edges of clouds?

it's a cool pic but i think it likely to be just a particularly well-defined lenticular cloud. i firmly believe in UFOs and the ETH btw, just don't think this is of either.

unlike any we've seen provided by links.

I wanted to add earlier...to me this pic is suspect for few reasons.

If I were offered between two choices...cloud or fake pic...I would go with fake pic, because i dont belive it's a cloud, despite some people having to have to talk more slowly for my benefit.

Blind mice and the elephant...

Flying saucers look like lenticular clouds, while lenticular clouds also can look like flying saucers.

The two pictures are very clear, and the image in question is refined and compact... Unlike a lenticular cloud. Specifically the bottom of the alleged craft... It's practically flat.

Just because it "looks like" something, does not mean it is so.

This is a very interesting find. Even if it is the sharpest-angled lenticular cloud we've seen before.

What bothers me is this superficial dropping in and "lenticular"....while completely disregarding the oddities you mention in the image. The devil is in the details they say. But..I guess I should have gotten used to that


If this is a cloud, it's one of the most puzzling ones ever pictured.

I'm still thinking 'cloud' but getting perturbed by a few things. I enhanced the contrasts as follows...



1. I cannot find an example with something like the symmetrically curved and flat-looking top.
2. Very defined and gradated shadow
3. From the examples I find, the shadowed area, followed by a light area, is then followed by another shadowed area but we have a light area followed immediately by another light area underneath it.
4. then there is the extremely flat and densely dark and very elliptical bottom.

Some images I did find...




It's a strange one, I don't think we are looking at exotic technology but I cannot relax with it being a cloud.

It's a cloud. Wanting it to be a UFO does not make it a UFO.


We had the privilege of looking at these first generation scans of the original negatives.


Lot's of detail is lost when scanning old negatives, but a lot of detail is there. To even get close to the original you need to first have a pro level scanner and it would need to be scanned at such a huge dpi, most would never do it.

Then every time you reduce the size from the huge scan, the detail is lost and the edges of clouds start to look like the scan in the video. You start to see that large graininess in them caused by the way the algorithms work. If it were scanned at an appropriate dpi, the original scan has been reduced greatly in size with a lot of lost detail. It also appears to have been shot in bad light. Probably shot with an old Brownie.

It's a cloud

a reply to: Blaine91555 You talk as if it can only be a cloud or a UFO. There is not enough evidence to prove what it is. You cannot prove it is a cloud. That is just your opinion. Your opinion is not fact. Also, do not try to frame everyone that believes it is not a cloud as people believing it is a UFO. That's a ridiculous misrepresentation and you know it.

Also...what of the size ? It's difficult to asses...but the OP picture seems to show something way smaller than any of the clouds on these pics...and this bottom "cap", which seems to form directly over the mountain tops. Yet on the OP pics...it doesnt appear as if there is anything of such size that would force this formation.

Granted...the background of the pic is questionable.
