Hi Frank,

I'm assuming that you decided for yourself and to your own
satisfaction that the Beveridge or Whittlesea object was a bug.
I on the other hand have not, as yet, been satisfied that this
is indeed a bug or a bird. One of the reasons I don't like to
blow this shot off is due to the very nature of the "gaseous
appearing" envelope surrounding the object. Much can be learned
from ordinary jet's exhausts of the aircraft's performance and I
believe that there is something to the aura surrounding some UFO
photos. Rather than being out of focus perhaps this is some by-
product of it's power source. I made mention of this to Errol on
SDI Saturday evening. I'm sure there are some out there that can
make much of that aura by measuring light intensity, spectrum
and what have you. What does it look like in infrared for
example? How is the envelope refracting or filtering light
passing through it?

Since we now have the specs on the Kodak camera that was used we
know that if it was a bug it had to be approximately 20 inches
away or slightly closer to the lens of the camera for that level
of detail to show up.

Again, I'm curious about this as a possible piece of the puzzle,
not as Ray suggests, that I'm  loath to give it up because I (..
have some inner need to perceive).

Those who know me, know better.


Best,

Don Ledger
