Results of Investigations Concerning Pterosaur Sightings In Papua New Guinea

3-D Check for Spatial Consistency

Image Processing of Paul Nation Video


Results for these frames:


     source number: target cumulative number = 2

     with source 1 intensity reduction.


     Neither target shows displacement within the

     frames analyzed.


     electromagnetic intensity  variations:

     Plate 28 A shows the absence of source

     physical connection.


     possible combustion sources:

         fires: not indicated in Plate 28 A; confirms

        absent in this plate of combustion sources


     possible ballistic sources:

         meteors or aircraft:

         none indicated in Plate 28 A and confirmed

         absence in this plate of ballistic sources and

         ionized vapor trails.


     camera inherent diffraction sources:

         internal camera imaging artifacts on the focal

         plane: none, however camera is not available

         for testing and confirmation


Although some results here are similar to the text on page 23 of Paiva’s report, the imaging was different, as can be seen in Plate 28, below.


With this imaging, however, the lack of any physical connection between the two light sources is obvious.


Another difference between Plate 23 and 28 is that here the absence of combustion sources is confirmed, as is the absence of evidence for “ballistic sources” and meteor vapor trails.


Ropen lights (or indava lights) are not caused by fire, airplane lights, or meteors.
