Diane, Tim, Et Al.,

You're welcome Diane - you and Amy (as well as others) have done
some excellent work on this case; unfortunately, there's not a
lot to "bite into".

Personally, in evaluating the photograph, and evaluating the
data from that, as well as the data about the camera itself and
the science of digital photography, (much of which was offered
here on the list) along with the environment the photo was taken
in, and the "lack of supporting evidence", I, for the moment
have come to the conclusion that what was captured digitally was
a flying insect with "light, or white colored wings". (Dan
Bright's enlargement of the photo seen here:


shows a body with two wings IMHO.

"Absence of evidence" of course is not "evidence of absence",
however; in some cases it can be construed as "partial evidence"
itself. E.g., methinks if this was a craft of some sort, (which
it appeared to be to me at first glance) given the time of day,
etc., I believe there "would have been" additional evidence,
i.e., eye witnesses, radar reports etc. Speaking of which has
anyone "eliminated that possibility?"

Of course, unless further evidence comes up, what remains is
"UO," (unknown object) as we can't even say for sure if it is
"self-propelled." As with anything that "comes down the pike" in
regards to a possible UFO sighting etc., it is necessary to go
through the motions, and that certainly has been done here to
great extent, and certainly is to be commended!

To that end, with the absence of further evidence, I felt some
attention should be brought to the machinery of what has taken
place since this photograph appeared in the public domain. That
machinery is the "expeditious collection, collation, evaluation
and dissemination of the data surrounding a UFO event!"

In other words, "I thought it necessary" to "focus on the
positive" of what has transpired since this "pic" came into
play, and that everyone involved deserved an "attaboy!" (And

Good Work!

Frank Warren
