I came across an interesting article today that I thought the ATS crowd would be interested in. (I did run a search for previous threads and did not find any). This is a photo of a UFO taken back in 1943 in New Mexico. The photo is now in the possesion of MUFON for analysis and supposedly the orignal negative still exists and is being handed over to MUFON to check its authenticity.



Here is the story about how and when the photo was taken:

The man* who shot this amazing photograph in 1943 with a Brownie 110-X camera was in the U.S. Marine corps at the time, stationed in San Diego, California. The following is a transcript from the letter his son wrote to me last week : "My dad was a sea Marine diver and [had been] stationed in San Diego near a Navy base. He received orders to go to a Navy base in Idaho to assist as a diver to help the men in training. They had a part of a full size front end of an aircraft carrier in one part of a lake where they would have the men line-up and jump over into the water where my dad and another diver [would be] under water waiting for them. Every now and then [when] a man would get turned around and swim down instead of up, ... my dad would get to them and start them up."

On the day in question when the photograph was taken, he got up at 2 AM to leave for his new assignment in Idaho. "He left San Diego and should have gone up 395 to Oregon and gotten on 20 E into Idaho...he started up on 395 but all was a blur until he found himself on route 60 in New Mexico going the wrong way. He then got on old 25 N. to Bernalillo and got on 44 to Aztec, New Mexico. [ His son remembers the only reference his father ever made to this episode of his getting lost was in 1958 when he (the son) was sixteen and in the Scouts "and getting ready to go to Cimarron Scout Ranch for 13 days. As I got ready to leave my dad said 'that's near where I got messed up leaving San Diego that time and ended up over on 44 to Aztec when I was to be in Idaho the next day.' And that's all that was said about that until on his death bed."

The first time his son heard about his father's strange encounter in the New Mexico desert in 1943 was in the last twenty minutes of his father's life. Continuing from the letter : "As I sat there holding his hands, he was dying, not breathing now and then. Now my dad and I are the only two in the room. As I sat there, I felt a hand on my left shoulder pushing down and a whisper in my ear, 'be strong my son.' I turned around and no one was there when my dad said, 'pay attention, my son.' For at least 15 minutes he talked to me about the good times we had in my young life, and then he said, "in the black picture book in a brown envelope there is a picture of a UFO I took along 44 to Aztec. As I drove up 44 to Idaho something told me to stop and get out and look that way,' and he did with a Browning camera in hand, and was standing there listening to a slight hum coming down from the sky. 'I got my camera ready and took a picture. The Negative for it is in my Bible in the back 8 pages." A few minutes after this amazing revelation to his son that had waited a lifetime to be told, the father died.

Shortly afterwards the son put the photo in a safe deposit box at his bank. There it remained, still closeted away, until August, 2009 when it finally saw the light of day at a Pittsburg, Pennsylvania MUFON gathering a few weeks ago.

I thought this was an interesting photo. Not so easy to fake photos back then as it is now. Not sure what it could be.

Great Find


Not sure what it could be. First time I see this one and as you said strangelly reminds me of a Klingon Bird of Prey.
Here is a link below to see the similarities:

But then again it might just be a shadow in the picture or reflection but im no camera specialist

To me this looks like an airborne seed.

thats a fantastic picture,
though you cant really tell what it is,
the story along with it makes it a bit more on the not-faked end for me.
Experimental ship maybe?

Nice post. I try to keep up with all the new info, and it's nice to see something actually new. Plus the klingon reference didn't hurt either.

Star and flag.
Keep up the good digging!

It's a parachute just deploying, either from a supply container or
a bomb. We see what we want to see.


Btw, the story sounds horribly fabricated with the dying
father passing him an envelope with a UFO picture, okay....

What intrigues me about this case is that the orignal negatives still exist so it can be proven that the photo was not altered. I suspect we will be hearing more about this case from MUFON soon once the evidence is examined.

Looks a lot like a dandelion seed or pine seed to be honest with you.

Interesting photo, thanks.

I see terrain in the background, and the color of the object matches the color of the terrain so I wouldn't rule out a mirage. I'm not sure what it is though.

The story, while amazing if true, does remind me a little of similar stories on snopes.com that we get in our e-mail, many of which have been debunked. That doesn't mean the story is false, but it just seems to have the same pattern as many false stories.

There are some nearly horizontal dark scratches, and some whitish scratches on the right side at an angle. I wonder what the story is with all the scratches and similar artifacts?

That was my immediate impression upon seeing this photo. Judging from the angle of the object it was a breezy day. Although I can't say for sure, I too have to go with the Dandelion Seed I.D.. If it isn't then the supposedly advanced engineers of this craft are lagging behind their Pleiadian buddies as far as all purpose aerodynamic design and EM function is concerned. How would you even achieve anti-gravity in such a thing shaped as that?

Cheers,

Erik

Turn the image sideways. It looks like a drop of liquid stained the photo, or possibly the original negative. It doesn't look like any sort of physical object in the sky.

That's as good a guess and theory as any except for one thing. The OP states that there is a negative original. Oh well. I liked it. Really!

Cheers,

Erik
