Roh, do you really mean to tell me this is the first time you heard of this? laugh laugh laugh
It's the oldest debunker claim in the drone book! I thought as long as you had been around you had seen it before. It was screamed about almost three months ago (and has also been proved false a long time ago).

undecided Remember those JPEG artifacts, maybe it's just the compression artefact that is the result of an aggressive data compression scheme applied to an image that is playing us a trick grin

Picture before compressed.

you can read about compression artifacts here:

I have not seen this before, elevenaugust mention he had already evoked it in a thread on OM, are you sure it have been mentioned in this forum? To me it looks like a mouse cursor, but that dose not meen that I think it is a hoax. People do many strange things grin

Well, I don't remember where it was but I thought it was proved long ago that it was only the light shining through the trees over the mountain ridge.

Yeah youíre right Latitude, probably the same time as me over on OMF, I canít be bothered to search the thread for a link but I have a copy. wink Easy enough to verify.

Hello all:
I just had to reread the entire contents of this thread before I made a comment that someone else may have pointed out previously.

My observation concerns picture 1 from the first batch of photos. On the right-hand side of that photo about mid-way up, there appears to be an artifact that bears a strong resemblance to a mouse cursor.

I looked at fore's PNG version of that picture and the object appeared to be too pixilated for me to come to a solid conclusion. It almost appears to be an outcropping of exposed rock in the blown-up version of the file. But, in the original file, it sure does look like a mouse cursor to meŅŅ

If it is a mouse cursor, I'm not saying that the photos are fake. But, it does make me more suspicious!!

OK, I can understand downloading or emailing the photo(s) to my home computer. But, why would one take a picture of the computer screen and crop the image? On the other hand, why would one CGI? an image and not print it out to get rid of that bothersome mouse cursor?


Iím sure there was a subsequent discussion about it, canít really remember now.
(Well, this is where I first saw it!!)

I thought the only cellphone pictures were the Lake Tahoe ones, not Chads. Maybe I missed something. They originally went to C2C so there might be more info available.

I believe the first Chad picture, the one taken by Chad's wife, was done with a cell phone too.

Gotcha. It is of a lesser quality, that makes sense.

It looks like a hole in the threes, we can see the sky behind....


I agree with elevenaugust -- you can see sky behind that, all it is, is a triangular (sort of) shape of a hole in the tree cover.

Take a look again at the original photo... there is no "sky" or blue in that area. In the below version, we have blue "sky below the area in question (plants with yellow flowers)... which is not sky. The blue may simply be caused by enhancement (white is showing as blue).

Why don't you guys draw a line across the hilltop ridge and see where it is. That blemish can't be a hole in the trees, it would have to be a hole clear through the top of the hill.

While I agree with you...

Even if it were the sky, how would it be possible for it to be bright white? The brightest part of the sky is to the left, this should not be casting blinding white light "through the trees."

If you also notice the blue shift on all object edges that touch the bright white areas (on the original photo)... then look at the arms on the drone... what's wrong with that picture?

Hopefully this will suffice until someone more skilled in Photoshop can illustrate it more clearly.

RoH I'm just curious, since you didn't specifically state this...did you take these photos using a cell phone pointed at a computer monitor? With the mouse intentionally placed over a similar landscape?

If so, you've reproduced the drone/cursor effect perfectly. Again I say to you....bravo! I couldn't have illustrated this point better.

Ho hum..The cursor idea is so old.
It originated in either the 1st drone or the pre-drone thread at the time called "strange craft" thread.

Maybe its a stupid sign, "Do not photograph the drone."
that is reflecting in the sun.

If its a cursor then why is it that only the cursor is blurred beyond recognition and not the entire picture?
Same goes for cleaning oil. Why is the entire photo not smugded in this manner?

Perhaps it is a small pool of water as it appears to be reflecting light or allowing light to pass through.

I have hiked up many a hill to find a small pool of standing water near a ridge line usually the result of a small spring or recent rain.
