No this is the original paper you sent to Walt Andrus.  The one where
you place the camera height ("perfectly")at 4.1', the "UFO" dimensions
at 24x17 with the ring measurement at 14.86, at a distance of 370'.

Dont go there.


I think you're getting paranoid.  I asked a question about photo
19.  I thought it would be fun to toss the calculations out for
all the people with math and science degrees to discuss.  We have
a tendency here to discuss things that are not as concrete.  This
would be something for the hard core science group to bat around.
Of course if you feel uncomfortable with others reading your work
I can totally understand.

After all, what if someone without a stake in this case found
your reasoning and math to be flawed...then what?

Lets stick to 19.  Everything is in writing.
