Hi, Don:

Well, let's just keep beating this poor dead horse some more.
Nothing better to do with my time...not!

What you are calling the "gaseous appearing envelope"
surrounding the object appears to be due to the Gibb's effect -
 as pointed out by Steve Sensi back in the begining of this
discussion about the Whittlesea UFO photo (as well as possible
blurring due to the motion of the object), See:


I have observed this effect in almost every photograph (most
often in digital photographs) and video still I have in the old
IFO Database as well as in the new IFO Database not to mention
the hundreds of images I've studied but did not include in these

Don, how do you plan to separate the UFO's "aura" or "envelope"
from the distortion caused by the Gibbs effect in order to
analyze the potential power source of this object?  How will you
know you are _not_ analyzing the distortion rather than the
"power source", exhaust, gaseous envelope, etc.?

This image is, afterall, a jpg.

I have placed a few images from the old and new IFO Database on
a web page for your review.  I increased the contrast so the
Gibbs effect would be more visible.  The first 4 images are of
IFO's.  See if you can identify them then tell me which ones
might have a "gaseous envelope" or exhaust that might be
analyzed to determine it's 'power source' and how you plan to
separate the distortion from the original pixels in a jpg.



I will be posting more IFO information related to the Whittlesea
UFO in the near future.

To learn more about the Gibbs effect and other photographic
artifact common in digital photography go to:

PS - Sorry for the sloppy job I did on this web page. I only
had just enough time to throw it together.
