Mythical Pictures

Although people frequently claim photographic evidence of flying saucers or aliens, skeptics like me an Phil Plait have (what should be) a simple request: Give clear pictures. Not fuzzy blobs, or poorly contrasted images, or lights with no reference in a dark sky. With all the technology available, it shouldn't be that hard.

In fact, just to demonstrate how simple this should really be, check out this article. It includes a beautifully framed, focused, and lighted image of a bear that's so rare, it's reported it was thought not to exist.

I'll admit the photographer was a professional and taking good pictures is his job. But then again, you'll have to work pretty hard to convince me no professional photographer has ever gone after UFOs.

AFTER the bear charged at him, he stuck around to get these photographs. Amazing. Just amazing!
