I always thought that the photographer was anonymous so I was a little bit surprised when I saw 2 year ago in James Fox documentary - I KNOW WHAT I SAW - in the part where Belgium photo was showed over the screen, that it was titled as: "Original photograph By Guy Mossay SOFAM BELGIUM 1990" In this latest revelation, author of the photograph is named as Patrick (last name not given). Guy Mossay is referenced on many websites in connection with different pictures so my first thought was that he (Guy) is maybe a journalist or professional photographer who in fact only published original photo in newspapers at the time or something like that. User Nablar from Reality Uncovered has stated this on July 27, 2011: Source: http://tinyurl.com/42rkmwq "The hoaxer sold the rights to a professional photographer (M. Mossay) in (or before?) august 1990. I don't know how much it influenced witnesses and standardized the mythical Belgian triangle. Actually people were reporting many different types of UFOs during the Belgian wave." If that info is correct, it explains the discrepancy between the names (Guy vs. Patrick). Also, it seems that Patrick Ferryn (not the same Patrick mentioned above), president of COBEPS, stated that this admission resolves origin of photo but can't affect the integrity of Belgium UFO wave itself. http://tinyurl.com/3sfuw2n Anyway, RTL has added another video today - 16 minute feature about the whole story. Guests in the studio were Auguste Meessen and Pierre Magarain. http://www.rtl.be/videos/video/345410.aspx If anyone can paraphrase (from French) on the List what was said on that last 16 minute video that would be great.
