Subject Case NR: 8017D93-126 HQ CR 44
1. Subject Negatives/Film were analyzed by HQ IVT and 7602 AINTELG, it
and the following results were found:
A. Negative #1: Deplicting C-5A aircraft on approach and streaking
unidentified aerial object in lower right portion of film. Film found to
be unaltered. Size differential was not consistent with size of aircraft.
B. Negative #2: Deplicting cylinder shaped unidentified aerial object in
upper left portion of photo. Film found to be unaltered. Film showed
object to be consistent with field depth and consistent with relative size
of fixed objects. Conclusion: Legitimate negative of unidentified aerial
object. Bolton/Reinfeld method did not reveal visible markings on object.
C. Negative #3: Deplicting irregular shaped unidentified aerial object
in seven frames of 8MM film. Because of the size and apparent speed of
object no further classification or conclusion could be drawn. Film shown
to be unaltered.
D. 34 inches of 8MM film: Deplicting apparent colored object moving in
front of still camera. Film found to be unaltered. Spectrography
revealed colors to be basic prism features. Depth analysis revealed
object to be within 152MM of camera. Object was not consistent with
relative size of fixed objects observed for several seconds in film.
E. Original Negative Deplicting Unidentified Object: Film found to be
unaltered. Because of a lack of fixed objects in the film, no depth analysis could be performed. Bolton, Reinfeld method revealed object to
be saucer shaped, approximate diameter 37 feet. Object contained a
trilateral insignia on the lower portion of object. Conclusion:
Legitimate negative of unidentified aerial object.
