comment about the difficulty in aiming three theodolites in the thread you linked, I addressed that
issue in my OP, where the software allows an operator at a computer anywhere in the world to move the apex of the pyramid with a mouse, whereupon the
three connected computers that control the motorized pan/tilt camera mounts adjust the aim of the cameras according to the position of the target,
keeping it center of frame in all three received images, since the computer at the operator's end, not theodolites, generates the aiming data in
response to operator control. The operator's computer also sends zooming signals to the three camera-control PCs in response to operator control.
That's one innovation of the proposal I made in the OP. It reduces equipment cost and allows smooth, synchronized aiming of the cameras by a single
operator. The software also does the triangulation and provides time, azimuth, and elevation data for each frame that can be rechecked if anyone
doubts the ability of the software to calculate the altitude, size, and location of the target, even though saving of images with the information
attached is best done at each camera-control computer. Each operator would be only on duty for one hour at a time and could be at home, thousands of
miles from the three cameras.
I know about the skywatch cameras. We know there are regulations about making sightings public, such as JANAP 146(E) and AFR200-2, and probably others
elsewhere in the world. But antidisclosure people in government can also make convincing arguments to the director of a facility without making
personal threats that making sightings public is not in the public interest. The Project Twinkle photos were never made public.
I also remember some newspaper articles from Canada about witnesses that were outraged by the debunking claims of the director of a meteor-tracking
facility after the witnesses had cooperated fully and filled out forms and answered all the questions asked. I never did get to see any follow-up, but
it was an extended sighting with various movements of an unknown mostly hovering and not-too-distant object, which the scientist claimed was a meteor
despite the descriptions of the witnesses.
So there is plenty of doubt about what they will tell the public.
If it’s hard, physical evidence you require, like pieces of a saucer that can be tested in a laboratory, well, there is a way to try
to go out and get it, with no guarantee of success: Not quite the same as “Occupy Wall Street,” but a long group hike along the presumed path
along which a damaged saucer might have continued on after depositing the debris in the Roswell case, with people walking perhaps 20 abreast 10 feet
apart, with SUVs carrying supplies, taking video going out live on the Web, and ready to medevac any participant if necessary, in a massive effort to
find one little piece of that “magic foil” Jesse Marcel described that the cleanup (and ETs themselves) failed to pick up, even though such a
piece might be 50 or more miles away and not causing reflections visible from the air because of being covered with a little sand. It’s long shot,
and a lot of ground to cover, but if Major Marcel was telling the truth, there should be something out there somewhere even today. The idea is that
such pieces wouldn’t be deeply buried but just covered with an inch or so of sand. Crazy? Futile? Maybe, but something to do. If it really was
Project Mogul, there won’t be any magic foil--maybe just some antique coins or diamonds or something.
