Finally found my UFO magazine today after a bit of searching, it was may/june 1997 issue (where did those 10 years go?! lol). Tried scanning it but
scanners on the blink so i'll try at work tomorrow.
Had a flick through the pages, apparently the original photo analysis by Kodak didnt show anything but later on BUFORN invited a Dr Roger Green to
analyse the photos which were supplied by UFO investigator Jenny Randles who was at the time investigating the Templetons story.
Dr Roger Greens conclusion was that the photo was a composite, ie two photos joined together. But Jenny Randles said she did not believe after meeting
the Templetons they would of faked it, whch then leaves some interesting points -
If it was faked who faked it and why?
If it was faked why did two men from "Her Majestys Government" visit Jim and drive him to the picnic spot and ask him questions about the
Jim had know way of knowing that 2 "Spacemen" would be seen at the Woomera "Blue Streak" test site the following day the other side of the world
and that the "Blue Streak" missles were in fact made a short way away from his "encounter". To fake a photo with a Spaceman in it is one thing,
but to then have a military missle test cancelled, the other side of the world the following day, because of 2 "Spacemen" near the launch pad, and
with the missles on the launch pad made a short way from where the original photo was taken......... co-incidence?!
The film of the test site launches is missing for the week when the aborted missle test took place even though its listed in an MoD memo as being
The "Spacemans" head in photo is shown in analysis to be detached from the rest of the body, a significant point for the "someone walking past"
The Woomera test site incident reported "two, *TALL*, Space-suited figures" which may go some way to explaining why the figure appears to tower over
her when he appears to be some distance away.
One final point regarding the "if they didnt see it with their eyes theres no way a camera could capture something thats not there", well how many
of you here have seen a Magician, and how many times were you sure the money/pea/ball/coin etc was under that specific cup?! Slightly simplistic but
it shows to an extent that things the eye sees cant always be proved beyond doubt.
Slightly less simplistic is the theory of subliminal messaging. Everybodys heard of the apparent test in a cinema that said "drink coca-cola" or
"eat popcorn" for 1/3000th of a second.....enough to trigger the sub concious perhaps but what if the "Spaceman" was only visible for a split
second at the precise moment the shutter button was depressed. Enough time to leave a lasting image on the film perhaps but possiblly too quick for
the human brain to register.
