    The 1951 version, that is.

    Remember where they first see where the flying saucer landed? Its in the shape of a bottle with a long neck. My question is about an object at or near the mouth of the bottle-neck.


    We just watched the movie on VHS (shows how much I love this movie). The object is not discolored snow. I don't think its a rock.

    I think it is the snowplow that was used to create the landing area. After it had done its job, if they had driven it off, it would have left tracks in the snow. So they just left it there. Tonight is the first time I really paid attention to it.

    Thoughts, anyone?

    Wait, Johnny: When the scientists at the research station form a human ring around the object as perceived through the ice and snow, they assume the shape of a circle. I don't remember any bottle-shaped aspect. JB

    Absolutely. Almost chilling, don't you think?
