On August 13 1970 police officer Evald Maarup (above) was driving home in his patrol car at night near the border between Denmark and Germany when a
bright blueish light shone down on his car, stopping it and its radio. The temperature inside the car shot up and Maarup was able to capture several
images of the phenomenon with his official police Fujaxa camera:
Further details are here:
If Maarup's photos are genuine - and Michael Swords endorses them in his excellent Big Study blog - then they are incredibly interesting
They seem to be the only photographs ever taken of a light cone, or light tube, emanating from a UAP.
The four art students involved in the famous 1976 Allagash, Maine incident ( I don't believe their hypnotically induced abduction story) described a
tube of light rather than a cone.
Maarup's photos could also be of a light tube, foreshortened by perspective to appear conical. Though I haven't made any measurements, the light
tube theory would give a roughly equidistant spacing to the near-vertical bands of light that we see here.
Clearly this is no beam of ordinary light from a helicopter. Professor Auguste Meessen has tried to explain 'solid' light beams by talking of ionic
plasma waves. His theory might also apply to light tubes. Ionised air molecules at high temperature would emit spectral lines, here apparently
reflected from the bottom of the hovering craft, letting us see its shape. Plasma wave theory might account for the vertical bands of light.
Failing a spectrographic analysis, it would be interesting to have details on the sensitivity range of the film Maarup used.
The official explanation was one of the silliest ever. Maarup had witnessed the landing of a T-33 fighter/trainer.
Wonder what people think.
