This is a photograph taken of a UFO in Airdrie, Scotland, that was sent to me via E-Mail by Stephen Dymock who took the picture. The image was published in the local newspaper, and shows a helicopter, with an odd shaped object flying above it.
At first glance I thought the other 'object' may have been an insect flying past the camera lense. Its sort of insect shaped and that could possibly be an explanation why the photographer didnt notice it whilst photographing the 'copter.
But, like Loonboy pointed out, the 'light/shadow' effects on the UFO do seem to match those of the helicopter.
Just noticed some odd patterning in the sky around both the helicopter and the object and for a minute thought it might have been tampered with, but then realised that when you convert an image to jpeg, you sometimes get that effect, so it's probably not...
Do what you want and be what you feel. Because after all, those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't 'mind.

1 there was only one helicopter in the sky...the one in the photograph is used by strathclyde police,,it's based in glasgow...it's a common site in the skies above airdrie 2 it's not the perfect fake or even a fake....how do i know becuase i took it,,and the image is still contained in the memory card inside the digital camera...as far as i am aware you can't transfer an image from the pc to the memory card inside the camera......besides i'm a point and click camera person..yes i can upload to the p.c and cut and change the contrast and things ,but thats it ..a true expert would see a fake ..just by looking closely at the pixels and seeing that they do not blend as they should,,i prosume...i've heard the bug theory but i'm not to sure on that one as a bug to show up that big on the image would really have to be close and the fact the handle on the window is in the forefront and is highly visible then surely a bug would be too if it was so close to the camera..still as we all know it could be anything.....after all how many of you at one time felt like throwing your satelite dish away..lol .. of course if it was that then it must have been big arnie that threw it..the helicopter seems high enough....anyway it's another photo that gives ,,food for thought...lets keep looking bye for now people ...stephen.p.dymock
I don't mean to question your credibility Steff, but there seems to be a pattern with photos like this and the photographer not seeing the object at the time of taking the photo. I just wonder why that is. I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt but if you could maybe let me in on why you took the photo or something, maybe is there something else in the picture and this is a detail?
the only reason you see the picture as it is .....is becuase it had to be cropped to fit on this site...if you would like the actual photo and newspaper report let me know and i will e-mail you them......as i said the image is still in the camera....the newspaper report gives you the explanation as to why i took the photo in the first place.......
