I admit, that at first, i just brushed all this under the carpet (although my thoughts on what they are, has not changed), and did not really take much notice of it all. Now with the recent La times article, of 2 detectives searching for answers, i thought i would attempt to look at it myself, in more detail.
I would like to thank these forums for interesting information, and thoughts on the matter…. these are: abovetopsecret.com, unexplained-mysteries.com, unifiction.com, open minds forum… For websites: i have consulted many for more information,ect (i will try and add all of them at the end of this post).
The first reports of the drone, was in may 2007; it appeared first, On the coast to coast website, the report appeared here—–> http://www.coasttocoastam.com/gen/page2022.html?theme=light . Also witness account there too.
Submitted May 1oth, 2007
Location, central valley of California. Later found to be Bakersfield? california.
Report date: (from camera) May 6th
But Chad reported it as being seen as early as April 2007 (on numerous occassions). See below for the photos:
I will just comment here, my first reaction to these photos…..
we get a full array of profiles…close, distant (at slightely different angles)
All very sharp, almost too good
What are those black marks around (and close to) the drone, you can see in most of them? to me it looks suspiscious?
At this point, i will add the link from MUFON, as it argues this is a fake http://www.hyper.net/ufo/vs/m05-001.html with an interesting argument; also analyists check the photos supplied.
These photos were scans of the original…..
Also, there has been a comparison made, with the Chad photos, to an incident in Devon (england) in 1967 (26th october, in South Devon)….did ‘Chad’ get some of his ideas from this?….. see below for video.
For a report on the incident see http://www.ufologie.net/htm/dorset67.htm and http://www.project1947.com/shg/hennessey/ufoinv4-4.htm (with diagrams)…thanks to http://www.hyper.net/ufo.html for making this information aware to me, on the website.
Location: Lake Tahoe, nevada
Posted by MUFON 7013
Date of event: 5th may, 2007
Images taken on cell phone
2 photos were placed on MUFON, on 12nd May,2008 and then slightly later at UFO casebook.com at http://www.ufocasebook.com/strangecraftlaketahoe.html (see link for details).
The first time Rajinder Satyanarayana (Rajman 1977) is mentioned is on craigslist, on the 20th may, 2007. He writes “Bizarre thing in the sky in capitola, CA ….WTF is this (capitola)”. He gives us 6 photos to look at; his name is quickly removed from craigslist, so he adds his name as Rajman1977, on a flickr account, with the photos from before….. account soon hacked though.
He alleged the event took place on the 16th may, 2007
Camera used: Konica Minolta DiMAGE X
The one we are most interested with here, is the one below (again we have near and very close shots as well).
One of the photos (seen above), is the one that the two detectives are now (in 2008) trying to trace, ie the telegraph poles location….. what i do not understand is why only the one photo…. if these draw a blank, should they not look for other clues, in the other photos, from ‘chad’ and others?
(the photo illustration above, is one of several noted in the ufocasebook forum; it brings up some interesting problems with the photo). This, and many more problems/discussions will be written about much more fully in (part 2).
Next we have the big basin sighting, (california)
Submitted on the 6th june 2007 ….. by Jenna L (a freelance photographer) on behalf of Stephen… although again much later, there is a debate to suggest this is not the true location at all.
Report date: 5th june 2007
Camera: Cannon Rebel XT
There were 3 photographs….. see http://ufocasebook.com/bigbasin.html for more details
Slightly later reported, but with the same reported sighting date: Big basin, california
Submitted on 16th june 2007 by someone called TY
Reported date: june 5th, 2007 (same as one above)
Sent to earthfiles.com ……. unfortunately as this is subscription based (for the archive), and i am not a member, i cannot access it.
I know there are 12 photographs, and i do have a link/photos to this but have misplaced it…. will add when found.
Isaac + the CARET documents (posted on the internet in june 2007)
CARET = Commercial Applications Research for Extraterrastrial Report pacl-q486-report-cover-fullsize.jpg
The CARET laboratory is in Palo Alto, CA (Isaac there from 1984-1987)
He was recruited for the CARET program.
Both an engineer + computer scientist
Interference (not from humans) caused invisibilty to become inoperative
symbols = software programs that self executed as a functional blueprint
Before Isaac resigned and became a ‘whistleblower’ – he managed to take out documents; these were
He was concerned about safety if who he was, was known
He made it common knowledge that main source of information was to be spread through coast to coast website
This is just a rough outline of CARET and ‘Isaac’. His website can still be seen at http://isaaccaret.fortunecity.com
So a quick recap to the 5 main sightings:
chad – may 10th 2007 Bakersfield, california
MUFON submitter 7013 wife – may 12th 2007 Lake Tahoe, Nevada

There are also allegedly other sightings going as far back as 1995? but i have not referred to them for this analysis… this can be seen at earthfiles.com
This covers part 0ne……. and is really a quick outline about the drone sightings, without going into too much detail. In part 2, i will be covering the problems/analysis/discussing the drones sightings/photos/CARET documents in more detail….
