Comparing my images to the DSS scans of the SERC-J sky survey film lead to an interesting discovery. To follow up on what I found I took a trip last month to the University of Michigan, where I viewed an original copy of the film negative missing from Google Sky.
To my knowledge no one, whether debunker or conspiracy theorist, has ever actually gone to the effort of locating an original film negative from the missing section before. This is the actual photograph missing from Google Sky, not just “a” photo of the missing coordinates or a digital scan of the missing photograph. Naturally it’s quite rare and it can be hard to find if you don’t know what you’re really looking for, but I found it. Here is my analysis of what it contains.
