Perhaps you could invest some money in your photo shop career and become a pro.

You guys are too quick to judge. This a photoshopped copy. There is nothing strange about it, only normal JPEG compression.
The original is on the MUFON website. I saw it 15 days ago and was not impressed. However the JPEG file is perfect, I compared it (with my own JPEG reading tools) to another picture of a LG VX8350 1.3 Mpix camera. There is no sign of tampering. So this is probably a picture of a real object, be it a hoax or not.

Goes to show how deceiving it can be sometimes.

Nice work!

Thanks Chadwickus!
Many people think that JPEG compression artifacts are either evidence of a copy paste, or ripples in the time/space continuum caused by quantum gravitron propulsion system.

Actually an excessive amount of ripples may be used as evidence of several low quality saves. But in this case a quick test with a de-noised, recut UFO, resaved at 90% quality with the same quantization and Huffman tables produces similar results.

Slightly blurred, cut UFO, pasted over a different patch of sky:

Resaved as JPEG with the same quality:

Edit: added images

I bet anyone $1 I can make a beautiful hoax UFO pic. You wont find nary a pixel out of place, neither. Like I said before in other threads- I just simply don't make fakes and post them as real- I more or less learned my skills doing photoshopped funny pics of friends of mine, or when Worth 1000 wasn't quite so high scale (and I got into it with someone about subject matter- and left in a huff). I am still wobbling around with Elements 2, yet. At some point, I may crank out one or 2 pics for scrutiny.

Now, if someone like me, who is using outdated software can turn out pics that'd make most people look twice- who are the actual hoaxers trying to impress with halfway done stuff? Are the bad attempts deliberate- maybe to draw critical or unwanted attention from their much better work? I am a firm believer in 'misdirection'- Magicians have a hard time doing a trick with me, as I am watching what they are doing with one hand I am supposed to be watching, and what they are doing with the other. And occasionally, when I see some of these fakes, and then something like the Calif drones- it makes me wonder just that- "wow- (I) saw someone's crappy pics on (some UFO website, Youtube), and these HAVE to be real, because they are so convincing!"

See what I am talking about?

i thnik the blurrs or lines your seeing is a magnetic field around the obkect becasue in things i have read about, for instance i read somewhwere about a guy who worked for the government who said he worked around a ufo crash sight say that everyone who worked at the crash site had on watches and all of there watches were a different time becasue of the magnetic energy from the crash site so i think its a magnetic field cameras do pick up tings not seen with the human eye.
