So, have we concluded that the pic was made in Photoshop, or did it require advanced CGI techniques?

So can somebody put the official "HOAX" in the title so nobody else has to read this god forsaken thread.

I can state, as a digital imaging professional, based upon the evidence presented here, and that observed by myself firsthand, that the original image captured in the year 1865, never contained a "ufo" in any way, shape, or form.

The point I'm making (or trying to make) is that ANY digital pic is opened to accusations of having been manipulated, even those pics that people use to debunk other versions of the same pic.
A pic is essentially evidence of something (even a hoax), but proof of NOTHING.
On a sidenote... I find it slightly amusing how some members here often say they will never accept any presented pic as evidence of anything, then get very annoyed at an OP who won't answer any of their questions regarding a pic.... Why get so annoyed, or even ask the questions, when you've already made up your mind not to accept the pic regardless...

Literally tens of thousands of people report stuff that shouldn't be there, all of them can't be crackheads. I don't know what you are afraid of. Oh yes I do, the unknown.

That must have been one very still UFO. At that time, exposure times could be very long by today's standards. There was no such thing as a "snapshot".
Oh, and here's the original photograph sans UFO

Real or not. Personally I'd rather encourage people to post threads as this, than discourage their future effort.

This is evidently the original, however it was so unbelievable that in one version they replaced it with a saucer-shaped craft, and in the other version they removed it entirely. Crazy drones...always pestering us.

Nope... What we've concluded is that we have two photos, one in which a UFO could have been CGI'd in, and another in which a UFO could have been CGI'd out.
Which one you want to accept entirely depends which side of the argument re: UFOs you prefer to stand on.

I'll probably lose all my points and be kicked off the forum for this, but this image was also found on the internet.
Mods, I'm sorry, please don't kick me, it will never happen again. I just notice the OP's picture was in a photobucket account, which means that it was manipulated most likely by the OP and then uploaded. All hoaxes should be given the same weight, right?
