Yes, I agree that most other such marks HAVE to be sharp. I was
really just parroting the guys assessment as best I could
remember it. Some said it was likely a drop on the camera lens
(I doubt this, it seems like there was just one aircraft based
photo at altitude which was merged with the satellite images of
the surrounding area). Some said it was some sort of watermark.
Someone even said they are thumbtacks. This assumes many photos
of the area and some sort of wallboard is used to hold them in
place when a photomosai is made.

Yeah, its odd.

We would have to know for sure how the photo was created.
I assumed it was 1 photo, so the parallax method doesn't work.

More have been found in L.A.!!


Unless these identical objects are covering our skies over our
cities, it seems some pretty prosaic explanation it likely and
hardly worth our time to find out (unless you have nothing
better to do!).

Remember that the government is covering up everything about
UFOs. So that means there should not be any images of UFOs in
these photos.
