    it's always worked for me to just take a picture of the actual ufo rather than fake one, but then again, I work in Area 51.

    Yes I worked at AAR51 as well. MJ24. I ran security in tunnels and flashed escapees who learned to dematerialize at Dulce making it through levels w/o the elevator. We ran triangles we built ourselves using hijacked parts once but our shop had to be destroyed when I retired so took only the info with me. We were working on a stardrive with bonded silicon bead polarizing shell. It tested fine but one of the senior guys over me thought he could pilot and in less than 14 seconds went from our Utah facility to somewhere beyond Mars they say and never came back. We always assumed he didn't know how to steer and ran into something big.

    well, since I have pics of REAL ufo's nobody believes it unless I put in fake backgrounds.

    get a glow-stick (chemical light), tape it to the underside of the u.f.o, lob it with lots of spin when its dark with the light on
    or you could use leds... maybe make a line of them with diferent colours...
    ta-daaa! multi coloured, lit up u.f.o.'s... start a scare!

    i used to do this with aluminum foil circles and held it up by fishing wire, nobody could see the fishing wire... it was awesome.

    there is wire out there wich is stronger than fishing wire, and more invisible. they are available in any magic store, cost about $2/10-20 feet
