This is an opinion that I’ve offered before.

First, I don’t want this to come across as a criticism of those involved in this analysis. I’m beyond impressed by this community’s ability to perform the sheer volume of collective analysis that it has. IMO, in aggregate, we have a very nice balance of openness and skepticism on this sub, and the commitment some members have to diving into details truly astounds me. Thanks for putting in all the work.

That being said, unless we get confirmation from an outside authority we trust, we’ll forever be in “analysis hell” with this one simply because this is the state of visual artifacts in the 21st century. The growing ease of generating compelling photo and video media along with the resources that we know certain parties can bring to bear toward disinformation really leads me to believe that it’s trustworthy testimony, and not visual artifacts that should be the cornerstone of any evidence based ufo research. Despite how good something looks, the confound of potential fakery will get worse and not better as time goes on.

It’s a fun problem for folks to work on while we’re waiting for the next hopeful development on the whistleblower front, but I’m highly doubtful that this will get resolved. That’s fine, but maybe a good lesson to take away for the future.

Thoughts?
