In "Project Identification" Plate 27, there is an image dated March 27, 1973, "Time exposure of approximately 2 minutes taken by Gary Sutton at Millers High Point, Piedmont Mo using a Petri 35 mm camera loaded with infrared sensitive film and a lens of 400 mm folcal length." Also, even though he does not show the grating in a plate in his 1981 book, he says he did take a diffraction grating photo. This is on pg 194. " ...I had procured blazed transmission diffraction gratings to place in front of the camera lens, even when the camera was attached to the Celestron telescope. The more efficient gratings would enhance my chances of capturing the color spectrum of a UFO on film." Date December 13, 1974: "When the slide film was developed, this Class B sighting exhibtied a color spectrum". So refreshing to re-read Dr. Rutledge's great UFO field research! What a guy! Anyone who knows his address, it would be nice to know if he still has the spectrum photo and if he can scan it in or provide it to others for use? Yes, this spectrum data should be invaluable in figuring out/identifying UFOs. Sadly, Rutledge did not discuss USING the spectrum at all!
