Honesty, Bruce, you must not have done much of a study!

The photos are frame prints from a 16 mm movie.

Got that? A movie! So there were many photos!

You must need glasses, too, Bruce. The movie clearly shows the
spotlight beam going up to the object.

Furthermore, in one short frame sequence, the movie shows that
although the spotlight beam (at that time) is pointing several
degrees away from the object of interest, when the beam gets
within a certain radius of the object, the beam appears to
become anomalously bent several degrees back directly onto the
object! I have an frame print enlargement of one such frame from
the movie.
