Just to repeat for the umpteenth time for those clearly not reading the thread....  it's a streetlamp.

Compare this photo taken from the same place in Seattle:

And the one claiming to be a UFO:

No, I was referring to those who declared it was an actual aircraft and to those agreed with that assessment, because they obviously haven't read the thread in order to realise that it is...

A street-light.

The picture has been debunked, It is the light that is connect to the post to the right and below it.  The bar that connects the post to the light is blurred by the light of the sun.  There is another photo out that shows this.

But Aliens are real!

Why would it upset you so much?  It's a free world, and if anything, the new ease of fakery has hopefully taught at least *some* people that any given incident should not be judged on just one aspect, eg the image/s.  In every case we need to look at the total package - the images, the story, the provenance, the corroboration, the source...  The increase in fakery has helped make that obvious..  And frankly, whining about it is even worse than raging at the tide - you can yell all you want, but if anything your complaints will just egg people on..

In a case like this (which doesn't appear to involve fakery anyway!!), I just shake my head in amazement that someone could look at that image and think UFO before doing the very obvious and simple check of the surrounds.  Gee, what else could possibly be in the sky from that vantage point..  Is that rocket science?

OK, maybe it's only photography geeks like me that know how 'blooming' in an overexposed area can wipe out thin details (although you can see that happening in other areas of the same shot..)  But for heaven's sake - there's a very obvious lightpost there!  As soon as I glanced at it, I knew what it was, even though my local streetlighting isn't the same... What happened to common sense?


BTW, there's another ludicrous example of this sort of complete lack of common sense here.  Look and WEEP at this 'funnel cloud with strange light'...

For heaven's sake, it's a blurred streetlamp!!!  Despite me politely showing the site owner that the shape of the local streetlamps is EXACTLY the same as the 'funnel', and explaining how, like the tree, it has been blurred by the motion of the car, the site owner leaves it there...

That's ufology for you...
