Can anyone identify which sighting this is?
« on: August 13, 2013, 04:23:15 AM »
This is the most qualitatively credible image of this series of drone that I've seen so far.  http://www.crystalinks.com/dragonflydroneclouds.jpg  Does anyone know which sighting it's from?  I was unable to find it in DRT's set of images.

I think that this is one of Leviathans recreations?, but it is CGI and not real and therefore not related to any sighting.

It was created by "saladfingers"(Kaptive 3D Animation Studios) as a challenge because people kept telling him something like that could not be done. That history was lost when the Open Minds Forum was obliterated. At the time, he had a habit of not watermarking his images. Here is a better resolution image with a "watermark" in red:

Ah.  Well disappointing but bravo to him.  It has many qualities that other drone images do not.  Specular highlights, ambient occlusion, realistic imperfections.

At some point he started adding chromatic abberation to his fakes, but I cannot see it on the one in question though.

You can fairly easily see what appears to be chromatic abberation on this Chad image on the bottom left spike as well as around the left wing:
