I stand corrected. I had long ago forgotten about Project
Identification, which I read nearly 30 years ago. What I do
recall from that is the weird image he got when he photographed
what appeared to be a single, rather dim ball of light that went
past the area where he had his camera. The image shows jiggly,
wiggly streaks of light that seem to bear little if any
resemblance to what he saw.

Heven't heard a peep from Rutledge since he became involved in
the DMSP photo case that is described on my web site. His
inviolvement was in 1985 or '86.
