Any artist will tell you that objects get lighter as they get further away from the viewer. Dark colors and more importantly shadows get more washed out and lose their intensity. So objects of similar distances from the viewer will have shadows of similar intensity or darkness.
With this in mind i zoomed in on the object and picked what i decided was one of the darkest pixels.
I then did a search in the entire picture for pixels of the same darkness or intensity of shadows. If this object was far away then you should find pixels of a similar darkness on the ground in the distance. But I only found the same pixel shade in the branches of the trees in the foreground.
Ive colored these pixels in red to make them easier to see :
There was not a single pixel of the same intensity of shadow found anywhere other than in the branches of the trees which are just a few feet away. So i would have to conclude that the object in the sky is not any further away than those branches. This would be a simple perceptive trick that we have seen a lot from that era where someone throws an object just above the tree line and then claims its further away from the camera than it actually is.
This sort of analysis is much easier to do with black and white pictures than it is with color ones.

ETA - Does it *really* matter though? Every competent researcher in UFOlogy knows that the phenomenon is real.

The phenomenon has already been proven to be real, so that is really not an issue here. My point is, the authenticity of this photo or lack thereof in no way impacts that reality.

I was going to say that in almost every old pic, UFOs look to be the exact same clunky size, they actually look antique compared the ones we hear about and "see" now-a-days. My two cents.

Agreed ..the old fake ufos are old hat compared to the latest fake photos and vids
