There is no way to pull any detail. It's had a gradient applied and all the original color data is gone leaving a very narrow color gamut. The inverse
image shows clearly how narrow. The detail was destroyed because the creator wanted it destroyed.
This is clearly a case of pasting the Aliens from another source over the top of a random image chosen for a background and then altering it badly to
try and hide the hoax. They may have been trying to make it look like an old color print after being exposed to the sun and elements for years and
years, but did a lousy job of it.
The luminosity bleeding through is a dead giveaway and I doubt this image deserves or needs any more time wasted on it. Probably dates back to the mid
to late 1990's when people were starting to use software like PS outside the workplace. It's likely had many incarnations in that time.
I believe this came from a set of faked photo's to corroborate the Dulce Urban Myth. If you have seen them they are a collection that looks like they
were just various photo's of randomly chosen equipment at industrial sites redefined to match the story.
Oddly enough I even recognized a couple of common components at industrial sites from working constructing them in my youth. For instance the image of
the row of Diesels could have come from any number of industrial plants. It appears to be from a mining operation as rows of those diesels are used
for Draw Works for underground mining and on Oil Rigs. They are old though as since then its evolved to diesel electric synchronous motors.
I'd guess the background for the phony Aliens image was just the outside of an industrial building of some sort as it appears to have a schedule 80
pipe fence (handrails) in front of it, which are common at such facilities. You would never see that on say a farm or someones home due to the cost,
but in industrial applications it is used like it costs nothing at all. That and the ridges on the roof metal and wall metal being matched is an
indication of prefab steel building.
I bet that whole series of pictures that were floating around could be matched to abandoned mines, mills or industrial sites within driving distance
of where the hoaxer(s) were located.
