Threads like this make me very glad and proud to be an owner of ATS. Excellent discussion, analysis, and best of all an interesting picture in the OP that isn't obvious CGI.

PP, you are the bees knees. (Hope you are old enough to understand that!) Saw your talent in another thread (don't remember where), and I'm jumping on the hubcap bandwagon now. I've been lurking, reading, and watching.
IMO, didn't anyone think that a 1970 UFO pic would be a couple of hub caps, tossed in the air multiple times, until the right pic was captured? This is Pennsylvania, they hunt, drink beer, (especially in the 70's) and if they didn't get any deer, they drink beer, and think up ways to make UFO pics. That was the fad back then, for hunters at their cabins, away from their nagging wives, a way to have fun.
"Dang, Jim, we didn't get any deer today."
"Yeah, Mike, I know. Fun to be away from the wives though. What'll we do now? And hey, hand me 'nother beer."
"Hey, I know, tomorrow, let's toss hubcaps and you can take UFO pics."
"Sounds like fun. We aren't doing much good hunting, ya know?"
So they tossed hubcaps the next day, instead of hunting, and got a good pic on their camera, out of many tries..
They went back home, to their nagging wives, with no deer, and Mike tried to explain:
"Honey-bunches, we were huntin' but this UFO thing came around, and scared all the deer away. Jim even got pictures on his camera, I know we took it along to photograph that 12 point buck we were supposed to get, but that UFO spoiled the trip."
"UFO?", Mike's wife asked, "You're meaning to tell me you went hunting and all you shot was a UFO?"
"Aww, hun, wait til I get them developed tomorrow, you'll believe us then!"
Mike and Jim got the pics developed, tossed the crappy ones, and they each took a picture home to their wives.
"What the heck is that? That ain't no UFO", Mike's wife responded, "That's two hubcaps you fools were tossing in the air while you were drinking! You better put that picture in a book, and hide it away, lest you become a laughingstock."
Mike did. It was a foolish weekend after all.
Years later, someone finds the pic, and posts it on ATS.
That's just one possible explanation......Keep an open mind.

I wouldn't know where to take it to get a higher rez scan than the one I had done at Kinkos. Any suggestions?

How many UFO reports go unreported? How many photos of UFOs are out there? How many "legit" UFO photos are just laying around in someones dresser drawer right now or inside of someones closet?
The "Smoking Gun Flying Saucer" photo could be in some old Grandfathers or Grandmothers closet right now and we'll never know about it.
