UFO Pictures Look Factual

DETROIT (AP) - A leading expert on unidentified flying objects said Monday that photographs of a "flying saucer" taken near here last week are apparently authentic.

Dr. J. Allen Hynek, chairman of the astronomy department at Northwestern University,also said the pictures are strikingly similar to other pictures of UFOs he has investigated.

Dr. Hynek, a scientific adviser to the U.S. Air Force's Project Blue Book, which co-ordinates all UFO reports for the military, commented in an interview with the Detroit News.

Dr. Hynek had examined negatives copied by The News from the original prints [!]taken last week near the Detroit suburb of Mount Clemens.

"Analysis so far does not show any indication of an obvious hoax," he said.

"To the best of my recollection even the 'antenna' shown on the back has been previously reported, as has the tail structure," he said.

The pictures were taken around 2:30 p.m. January 9 by two Harrison Township youths, Grant Jaroslaw, 15, and his brother, Dan, 17.

The youths said the object hovered over Lake St. Clair behind their home before speeding off to the southeast.

The boys' mother, Betty Jaroslaw so far has refused to let the U.S. Air Force or other experts examine the original prints.

Note: The youngsters said much later that they had faked the picture.
