The Final Picture

At 10:09:37 pm a time exposure of unknown duration was taken by Cornet of a jetliner on approach to Stewart airport. The picture (Figure 20) shows the lights of the jetliner moving from west to east over a low north-south oriented ridge, which parallels West Searsville Rd. to the west. The altitude of this jetliner is estimated at about 1,000 feet, the minimum permitted by FAA regulations this far from the airport. When Cornet took the picture, he did not notice a set of lights quickly flash on and off to the right of the jetliner, but when he got the film developed, a set of six bright lights and several dim ones was present on the print. When a daytime picture of the scene shot from the same location is overlain on the nighttime picture, the position of these lights falls on a grassy knoll just west of a narrow swampy area containing tall grass and cattails, which is located between the road and the hillside. Because no house or human structure is located on that hillside anywhere near that location, the lights indicate the probable presence of a vehicle on the ground in a position where the occupant(s) could observe the activity of the witnesses across the road.

(Figure 20)

The shape indicated by the lights, if they are located at the angles of the vehicle, is that of a six-sided craft. The two back lights are smaller or may be obscured by the structure of the craft, while the lights visible from the front are larger, and golden white in color mixed with red. The shapes and colors of these lights are not typical of aircraft lights. Arcing was occurring between two of the lights on the left, indicating that they are not lamps, but plasmas. Little or no reflection occurs off the structure of the craft, indicating that it is in stealth or invisible mode. Its hull may have been covered in black light-absorbing material. The fact that the lights appeared when the picture was taken indicates that the pilot 1) knew that a picture was being taken, 2) wanted a record of his presence to be made, and 3) did not want to be discovered until later after the negative had been developed.

Transparent Hull Indicated

A small golden yellow light is located at the center of the outline defined by the larger lights (Figure 20). Light coming from this small light, and possibly from other lights also, is reflecting off something just behind the small light. What this picture could be showing is the pilot sitting in a seat at his controls. If this craft had a semitransparent "glass" dome over it, we have an explanation as to how the photograph could image the pilot inside. The enlargement to the right and the embossed image above it show the outline of this pilot sitting in his seat. One can make out a body form, including his helmet or head, neck, shoulders, and right arm, and his legs spread apart around what may be a control console or unit. Reflections off additional upright equipment behind him and to his right (our left) can also be detected, and behind that glints of two widely-spaced back lights.

Comparing the size of the craft to the small tree or large Juniper bush to the left of the craft indicates that it is only about 8-10 feet in diameter. The presence of only one pilot is consistent with it being a small observation or reconnaissance vehicle. The reflections off the pilot indicate that the top of the craft is transparent to light, and probably glass-like. Overall this craft may have resembled a child's top with a large glass dome. But the size of the pilot inside is small. If the diameter of the craft is 8 feet, the estimated height of the pilot based on the height of his torso, head and lower legs, is about five feet. If the craft was 12 feet in diameter, for example, the pilot could have been six feet tall. The large bulbous head on the pilot, if it is not his helmet, can be compared to the size and shape of the head of the typical Grey aliens so commonly reported in abduction cases.

The absence of recognizable wings and the small size of the craft raise some interesting questions about how it got there. It is clearly the wrong shape to be a helicopter, and much too small to be a Harrier jump jet. The pilot is facing the direction of the camera, indicating that he is observing what the humans are doing, and was probably reporting and sending data to the pilots of the other craft during The Performance. The existence of an observation craft so close to the human observers strongly supports the staged nature of the event.
