I've been digging around but cannot find a website page which
has several comparisons of photographs that appear to show some
close resmblance with each other. Perhaps another lister knows
of the site.

Of course, similarities - even _very_ close details - prove
little, as one might create a hoax photograph using some other
photo as a guide. And the reference photo may be a hoax, itself.

With regard to UFO morphology in general, the following chart is
instructive:

The page I have been looking for compares (if memory serves)
photos of objects resembling 6E (or, perhaps, 7E), 3C, and
perhaps, 9B.

As for the classic saucer shape, it is my understanding that
thisgoes quite a ways back. Matthew Hurley's UFO Artwork site
contains some intriguing examples.
