Interesting to look at Bragalia's pic, which I've now embedded above, in the light of the testimony of Wanaque Reservoir Police Chief John Cassazza
to journalist and amateur astronomer LLoyd Mallan about what Cassazza saw on the night of January 11, 1966 :
"And the strangest part of
it was that there was no noise attached to this object. None whatsoever. It was absolutely
silent. A silent light." "What color was this light?" I wanted to know. "It was a bright white
light. As I said: just like on a locomotive. It was funnel-shaped. It seemed to come out of
some object, like a funnel. In other words, it spread out as if it were focused through a
telescope. It was narrow at one end in the sky and spread out into a very wide beam as it
approached our upper gate house at the dam."
"In other words," I said, "this wasn't just a flat light? It had a shape."
He nodded. "Just like a funnel." "Sort of like an upside down funnel?" I asked. He nodded
again, this time with vigor. "That's just exactly what it looked like."
The Wanaque photo deserves a very through analysis. In the light of Ellen Crystall's remarkable photos published in her Silent Invasion, and
Professor Meessen's analysis of her photos and the Belgian Petit Rechain colour slide (so far only in French, unfortunately), I think we should
seriously consider the possibility that the Wanaque photo captured UV emissions from the putative UAP, and the possible plasma surrounding it.
The anonymity of the photo is quite understandable, given reports that eyewitnesses and photographers were threatened by Men in Black. The stakes
could not have been higher at the time. The US Air Force was intent on closing down Blue Book, and a mass sighting, with photos and testimony by a
Police Chief and a Mayor, could have made this impossible.
