No worries me ol' mate


It will be interesting if the op can get something done with the negative.

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not

Tauristercus.....

I'm not so sure.

I think you might be looking at a normal compression effects that occurs in such a scan when an area of "more information" is in an area of "less information".

I've seen that interpreted incorrectly a few times on here.

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not


Hmmm ... I do believe you're correct on that observation.
I've just looked at other sections of the inverted image and have found similar "outlines" around objects that are definitely a part of the original image ... so at this juncture, please disregard my previous post and this image in my opinion goes back to unexplained.


Certainly no photoshop here boys, this image is 25 years old, computers still had Green screens back then.

Those imperfections on the image near the object to me look like ball point pen marks or something pressed in the image when someone pondered it upon development around the kitchen table.

Quite random i know. More details coming soon i assure you. I have asked for exact dates, location / address, who the people are in the shot as well as the photo in question and the negative.

I must admit, it does look like an upside down sprinkler mech off that hose in the guys hand.

Dreamkidd.....

Here's an example of a sprinkler.

Can you see what I mean about there being a general resemblance?



And.....upside down which more resembles the UFO.....



And.....the UFO for comparison.....



Kind regards

I don't think he was meaning it was photoshopped in 25 years ago, more like it was done recently.

For the record I don't think the UFO has been shopped either.

They look more like pin holes to me, as if it's been pinned up several times.

Odd that if this is the case, the object wasn't noticed back then?

The more information, the better, but I doubt it will glean anything new...unless someone in the photo remembers something about it.

The negative could be handy though, particularly to help with my theory on what it is...see below...

I don't think it's a sprinkler.

I think it's something on the actual photograph, if it doesn't show up in the negative, then this would pretty much confirm it.

I am trying real hard to find something in that photo that would show that it's taken recently and it was photo shopped. The two people seem to be dressed in todays cloths. I know it's a long shot, but it just doesn't feel right. I have no proof. If I am wrong, then I apologize.

I believe the reference to being "photoshopped" was image insertion subseqent to the scanning of the original photo.

Kind regards

Nice catch there Maybe, my gut is saying that this is not a UFO (craft) but resembles alot like the spirinkler 'Maybe' posted. For the record I trust the OP I do not think this has been photoshopped.

Dreamkidd ...

I know you mentioned that the original pic was taken about 25 years ago, which would make it somewhere around 1985, give or take a year.

In an attempt to try and narrow down the actual year, I noticed a can of budweiser on the table and decided to compare the shape & colouration of this can to that of various budweiser cans over the years.



In my opinion, the closest match to the can in the image appears to be the one from 1996. Notice that there was an obvious design change in that year which gave a substantially altered exterior shape and logo design to the one in the previous year of 1995.
That would make the age of the pic to be a maximum of 15 years old and not 25 as stated and therefore the pic could NOT have been taken any earlier than 1996 ... certainly not as far back as 1985 as claimed.

If you're relying on memory alone, could you please somehow confirm the actual year that the original was taken ... thanks.

The 1981 & 1995 cans are Bud “light” cans.

The 1996 can seems to be a Bud “regular” can.

To pursue this comparison, I think we need Bud “regular” cans from earlier years for comparison.

Kind regards

I'm trying to find some "regular" bud cans from that era (1981-1995), but would be quite surprised to find a radically different shaped can specifically for the "regular" buds.

I don't know how you found those Bud cans.

I can't find any "can by year" info!

Cheers mate

I am pretty sure the beer cans are correct for that time. But the fact that they are right there in front, is what caught my attention. As I said, I am probably wrong, but the people seem to be recent. (clothing) The cans seem to be added for affect. Can anyone tell if they appear to be added.

I had included that in my earlier post but discounted it because it had a much more silvery appearance overall then the one in the OP's pic, and also just under the top edge of the can, there seems to be a silvery ring running completely around the can.

Hmmm! I would love to believe it is a UFO, but it looks like an inverted hub cap from the 1960's to me.

Interesting post. The photo looks legit to me, though of course, it might be a reflection.

On another note, do people drink Bud Light? And if so, why?
And a joke: Why do Americans serve their beer chilled? So they know it's not piss. Sorry

What interior? What window?

Are you mistaking the white places where the emulsion stuck to the next page of a photo album over the years and was pulled off when the album was opened as interior reflection in a window?
