Greetings George!

That is not a photo of a "definite UFO" that Dirk got from Tim.

Although this "UFO" is definitely "a clear image of a solid
object", since this object is not really in the sky, it's cannot
be, by definition "an unidentified flying object".

What is it then? It is an optical camera reflection of the hot
street lamp directly below it and an equal distance directly
opposite to the uncropped center of the picture. Another less
brighter street lamp to the right created a second fainter "UFO"
that is an equal distance to the opposite side of the same
center of the picture. How could Dirk, Tim and you miss this
other obviously saucer shaped UFO (really another optical camera
reflection) in the same picture?

I will let Dirk figure out what those other UFO Photos in the
sky over Montauk, New York (see his web site) might be. Since
the Kingston, Ontario and the Montauk, New York photos are
typical snapshots of places we visit (the first is of the
Kingston skyline which is centered on the church in the distance
and the other two taken by Keith and Elizabeth are of the motel
they stayed at), another good reason that these images in the
pictures cannot be called UFOs is because they were not noticed
at the time the pictures were taken. James Neff of RENSE.COM
calls all such UFO images on photos that were not noticed at the
time "BLURFOs".

Thanks for your reply to my last e-mail. Did Apollo astronaut
Dr. Edgar Mitchell let you know the names of fellow astronauts
who told him of their UFO sightings or experiences? Unless we
contact these astronauts and ask, we will never know for sure
and only have Edgar's alleged comments as andecdotal evidence.
