View Full Version : UFO Fest

Currently attending the UFO fest in McMinnville, OR. Interesting group of speakers: Corbell, Knapp, Paulides, Lazar, Fravor.
So far there has been not very much time for Q&A—mostly just movie screenings. Hopefully things will open up during the speaker panel. I just wish I had some good questions...especially since Corbell says this will be Bob’s last public speaking appearance.

20th anniversary! Wish I where there...

I have some bad news for the current McMinnville festival 2019.

The McMinnville pictures are hoaxed. The evidence will be explained below.

I spent 3 days with François Louange in Sofia, Bulgaria back in 2015. Francois showed me the analysis of the McMinnville pictures. This analysis provided the evidence that could only have been processed now in the last decade using the most sophisticated software image analysis tool that was developed by Francois. Before that time the software was incapable of precision analysis, the resolution for extracting fine details was not there. He showed me unambiguously the link tethered connection of the UFO (“flying saucer”).

McMinnville UFO Analysis :

The analysis was done by Antoine Cousyn, François Louange and Geoff Quick. The results show a model. the object rotated by one axis of the mirror's swivelling pole (the pole is still perpendicular to the electrical wires above). The report of the analysis and results are at the links below at numbers 1 and 2


What can be done with an alleged UAP photo/video?

1. Assess the authenticity of the document (evidence of a fake)

2. Identify a spurious effect (no phenomenon outside the camera)

3. Perform measurements in order to identify a known phenomenon

4. Perform measurements in order to characterize an unidentified phenomenon

The IPACO dedicated software, derived from an established image intelligence operational tool, has
been developed for five years in cooperation with Airbus/DS and CNES/GEIPAN to fulfill these tasks.

This document is made up of two parts:

The initial study with back to the McMinnville pictures section plus the published report on the ipaco.fr website in April 2013, listed at number 1 below. A complementary study i.e. evidence of a suspension thread», added in June 2013, listed at number 2 below.

The 1st part shows how, using adapted interactive tools, one may prove that the explanation of a model hanging from a thread is by far the most probable one, in the absence of irrefutable proof. This study, however, did not uncover the presence of a thread in the pictures.

However, the 2nd part, written up after having integrated a specific and original detection tool into
the IPACO software, uncovered the presence of a suspension thread in both pictures, which should put an end to the study of this case file.

2). http://www.ipaco.fr/ReportMcMinnville.pdf

CONCLUSION: The clear result of this study was that the McMinnville UFO was a model hanging
from a thread.

BACKGROUND: François Louange and his team have developed, for the French Defense, the concept of the OPACO technique within the OCAPI software (Operational Computer-Aided Photo-Interpretation). The tool IPACO is dedicated to presenting state-of-the-art methodology for extracting objective information from digital still or video imagery.

François Louange is a consultant and collaborates mostly with CNES / GEIPAN on the analysis of UFO photos / videos. The UFO department (GEPAN) of the French Space Agency (CNES).

In addition to this analysis, other cases such as the infamous Chilean flying insects, the hoaxed Louisiana zombie and the Turkish 'UFO' videos that apparently turned out to contain reflections from yacht windows. Again, the evidence could only have been achieved now based on specially developed software tool.

Both Lazar and Fravor answered questions today. It was fascinating to hear David’s first-hand account of the tic-tac encounter, attempting to chase it and getting to within a half mile before it vanished in an instant.
Lazar shared an interesting time dilation anecdote from their experimenting with the recovered tech. He described that at one point they were able to distort time as such that a candle’s flame appeared perfectly still. He remarked that he still doesn’t understand how it was still emitting light at this point.
Fortunately, I was able to ask a question, for which I asked him to describe the history of human-alien interactions as described in the briefing documents he was given to review when he first arrived at the facility. He spent a couple minutes talking about the intentional compartmentalizing of these types of projects and it seemed like he was going to actually dodge the question and then at the very end he said that his impression (from these documents) was that the history goes back at least a thousand years and that the craft that he was meant to reverse engineer were actually recovered from an archaeological find.

Footage from the parade...

I was at the Pine Bush UFO fair in Pine Bush, NY in the Catskill mountains on May 18th. Nice to see this phenomena accepted as non threatening (although not 100% seriously) in small town America.

There was a parade down main street ...
