Hi Amy, thanks for your reply! :)

I don't know much about lights converging! Perhaps someone on
the list will be able to offer more on your theory?

I am amazed that no hard edges whatsoever show up! It was the
same with that NY UFO close up, I posted recently. I speculate
that it could be some kind of electronic/magnetic sheild or
"force field" as they used to call it in the sci-fi stories! :)
Either that or it's lost it's hard edges because it was
illuminated from virtually every angel above & below and
possibly may have had an extremely reflective surface?

There may have been other photographs taken as the object
cruised around LA for half an hour. If so, perhaps an ad in the
LA Times would bring them out of the basements & attics?

Incredible how this remained so low-key for all these years! But
then, it was wartime & the world was under martial law! I think
that any remaining witnesses need to be interviwed before it's
too late and this becomes just another UFO myth! Is there anyone
on the list living in LA who's willing to take it on?
