First, go look at this:

www.thesun.co.uk...

Then, go look at this:

www.expressandstar.com...
To me, it appears to be the SAME STORY:


The photo was taken by a 57-year-old nanny on a day out last April. DC Heseltine, of Wakefield, West Yorks, has now handed it over for study to a former US navy physicist who specialises in photo analysis.


VS.


A nanny, aged 57, who was on a visit to the attraction last April snapped the unexplained object. Dc Heseltine, who is from Wakefiled in West Yorks, has now handed over the picture for study to a former US navy physicist who specialises in photo analysis.


However, they are two completely different pictures!

What do you think? Did the papers get hoaxed? Or is one of them using a fake photo without admitting it because they couldn't get the real photo?

Interesting!

Perhaps their is foul play behind this, yet, if they couldn’t obtain the real photo why post one at all? Why even the post the article at all.

Could just be a small cock up by one of the websites. Mite be worth emailing them and quizzing them about it.

I do personally find the triangle to be a better picture, the first one doesn't look like a solid object.

Hmm. Curious by all means.

Just to add, on the blog for the article it says:

"Birmingham UFO Group said: Oct 20th, 2008 at 10:09 pm This is not the actual image of the siting. This image is from the media library source from years ago."

Perhaps they couldnt obtain permission to use it, or a cock up

It is the same story and it is 2 different pictures.

Hmm. Nice catch!!


Edit to add:

Yes, I too just read all the comments on that article....so the article pretty much leads one to believe that THAT image is the original image.

Eh. Sketchy either way.

I don't know what is the matter lately with the whole UFO topic, people claiming they have the best proof ever but won't spread it.

If I was so lucky it would be the first thing I did.

Strange indeed, but I don't trust the Sun newspaper anymore, and I don't trust anyone who claims to have the best proof ever.

Aye, anyone claiming to have the best proof ever is only doing it to get views, even people with absolute no interest in the subject would be obliged to take a look if its claiming to be 'the best ever'. On the contrary, the best ever evidence usually comes from someone the total opposite.

hey i live about a 2 miles from there ^_^

the Express and star is a local paper if i was a betting man id put money on thiers bieng the real one else they wouldnt have posted a photo

the sun however isnt always responsible in its reporting

and that photo isnt taken from dudley castle, there arnt any housing estates close enough to dudley castle to appear like that in a photo

Thats called media law. The Sun have probably paid for the image and the other paper has lifted tha article and used a generic "dart" image because they cannot copy The Suns picture from, their page.

I'd go with The Sun getting the real image as they have a fair bit of financial clout!

Nice find! Bring on the analysis!

but like i say that picture (the sun) cannot have been taken from dudley castle

there are no housing estates in close proximity on 2 sides you have dudley town centre and bus depot on the other side small warehouses a large roundabout and then a cinema/gym complex and behind are industrial buildings

either the pic was taken somewhere else or the whole thing is iffy

That could be Dudley from where im looking at the pic. It doesnt look like a housing estate at all. Theres only a single street light, it looks like shrubbery and a couple of non descript buildings. Hard to see though but teh foregroud doesnt seem to have houses from where im looking.

it could be dudley but its from a point not too near the castle

those none descript white buildings if you zoom in sure look like houses and nothing like the buildings surrounding the castle

HOnestly those qhite patches to me look like gaps between treetops, look closer and see if you see what I mean. At first glance maybe they look like houses but if you look at the shadows which create the illusion of blocks, they are trees as far as I can tell from that.

Im pretty sure a 57 year old nanny didnt lie or photoshop the picture im not sure why people are suggesting it, maybe the picture is explainable by normal means but I dont think "its a fake" is an answer.

the angles of the triangular tops are to regular for random holes between trees

possibly a pointed fence top but the one on the far left appears a different size to the other two

somthing i didnt notice before (just scrolled in crazy close to try get a better look at them) notice on the horizon that building that sticks up higher then everywhere else

if your familiar with the area (as you sound) id bet that is dudley castle the shape is right try it ctrl and scroll your mouse wheel in like crazy



the picture wasnt taken at dudley castle, the picture is dudley castle

someone screwed up the reporting and threw the castle in as a landmark

I'm curious to know which picture is the one that the 57-yo nanny actually took, and why the other one is being used by a newspaper without any admission that it's not the real picture...

I think The Sun have the real one. You will notice the other article inserted a reference to a "dorito shaped traingle craft sighting in 2007" which seems to be why they chose that photo.

All the images on The Sun.com are protected and as far as I know they are all paid for and owned by The Sun, they might have a tendency to sensationalise but they do have no end of cash and tend to buy their own images, its unusual for the big tabloids to print images which are not paid for by them.

Smaller papers and websites tend to use more generic images because they dont have the budget to match the tabloids and mainstream press. So, on that id suggest The Sun have the true picture.

If they paid for the story they are sure to have paid for the image also.

These are British papers and not the best either, every week it is apparent that someone else has rehashed an article from another paper just to fill column inches.

I recommend reading private eye, they always do a good expose every fortnight on the inter-politics of newspapers.

Whats wrong with British papers? We have a far more free and investigative press than most countries, it would be far worse to have the US Press who are basically bought and paid for on every subject sadly.

You have to give credit to the Tabloids, without them our politicians wouldnt keep getting cuaght with their pants down, the tabloids keep the fear of god in officials because if the miss the toilet while doing a wee, The Sun will be there, you can bet on it

Was the Blair government ever brought to justice over the cash for peerage scandal? No! The day the government got away with breaking one of the most important concepts of British law was the day I knew papers no longer had any moral obligations to protect the British public.

Even the broadsheets are full of tosh these days, ranting and raving about celebrities and run by the owners rather than the editors. I can not name one paper I could recommend reading every day anymore and I find myself seeking better alternative news sources but these have such small circulation that they don't reach a large enough proportion of the public.

The papers don't care about us anymore and now parliament hasn't got to care about the papers, it is a sad fact that we have reached this state in Britain.

P.S. The Sun is run by Rupert Murdoch, one of the biggest slime balls out there

actualy all strata of the British press routinely engage in copyright theft of all material


edit to add -

read the bloody articles - the express&star does NOT claim that the pic is the origional
