UPDATE: Pulaski County UFO debunked!

Posted Thursday, July 15, 2010, at 9:54 PM

Well, looks like I have a little update for you all on what turned out to be probably my most popular blog entry to date: The Pulaski County UFO photo.

I was contacted Thursday night by Heather Frayer, a member of Lorin Beach's group Society of the Unknown Paranormal Investigations. She says the group took and has now debunked the photo. This is what she had to say:

"It was actually a flower pot that was superimposed on the digital photo. Still have no idea how the photo came about. But we informed Mufon and MIG. We didn't mean to cause such a scare, but there was no water on the lens. He was using an infrared light with a camera. We also have other very interesting photo in the same cemetery in which both sides of the same tombstones appeared on the same photograph....

....Just wanted to let you know because apparently double images can occur on digital as well as regular film."

Great. Something ELSE to have to watch for during evidence review. Personally, I've never heard of superimposed images happening when using a digital camera, but I suppose anything's possible. I'm glad to hear the group takes their debunking seriously.

Heather, if you are reading, thanks for keeping us up to date!
