Why? Since we have no means to estimate the distance, we have no way of telling how large the object is. Could be large, could be small. We simply do not know.


I bet someone could figure that out if they went back to the location, because it just doesn't seem to be all that far away from the camera or flying at a very high altitude.  There are known reference points in the picture that should make an estimate possible.

It so clear , what do you guys think?

It looks pretty odd.  It's definitely an unknown object.  I like the way the Sun reflects off of it.  It's Such a gorgeous, clear day it seems suspect that she didn't see it in the sky but then she was looking at the goats, wasn't she?

Seems like this scenario is fairly common, strange things in the sky go unnoticed until seen in a photo after the fact.

Could it be a cloaking device?  Sci-fi! :)

Good find Jeff! :tu:

I don't normally give these modern UFO photo's more than a cursory glance, but the work done by the analysis expert for ATS , and the coast to coast discussion, has left me really impressed with this little beauty!



...the photograph section starts around the 40 minute mark if anyone's interested.


Cheers.

Looked at this with maximum screen magnification. It doesn't appear so much bowl shaped, as like a flattish disk with a large dome atop it. On the left hand side of the dome there appears to be another object partially filling in the area between the disk and the die of the dome. On the right, the Sun appears to reflect from the dome at the correct angle for a real object, judging my the way sunlight falls on other objects in the image.

Has anyone suggested the possibility of a flying bug of some kind?  Like a beetle or scarab?  From what I understand there are a lot of those in Crete.  The object isn't in very good focus, which could very well be a result of the kind of motion blur you see with flying beetles.

It sure is an interesting photo though.

Actually, no you couldn't. We neither have distance nor size; we need one or the other. If we had a rough estimate of size, we could gauge the distance and vice versa. It could be a big thing far away or a small thing close up (I like the bug idea, Boony).

Yeah, sure you do, even though you just said that you had no idea of the actual size of the UFO.

And if you can't see that the UFO is at a low altitude and relatively close to the camera then you need new glasses, although I think it's definitely larger than an insect or a salad bowl.  That's just a bunch of BS.

  • You can't just choose to believe something.

    Believing in something doesn't make it true.

First of all, most of them wouldn't know a UFO from a goat's hindquarters, and that's the truth.  Personally, I like the picture, but no one has to sell me on the idea that UFOs are real and come from ET civilizations.

UFO = Unidentified Flying Object

If I tossed a Frisbee past your head and you didn't know what it was, it technically would be a UFO!

Are there unidentified/unidentifiable objects in the sky? Of course! Is there life elsewhere in our galaxy/universe? I would bet on it!

But, you can't just look at a picture of an alleged UFO and assume there is life on board let alone extraterrestrial life. Heck, you can't even assume the object in the picture is some kind of spacecraft.

I want to believe.......but I need that conclusive evidence......you know......facts!

So, just how do you conclude that this is an extraterrestrial space vehicle manned by aliens?

My mistake, four coffins.

Looks like a silver balloon.

In the center you see a perfect sphere, and some stuff wrapped around it or flapping around it.

Wrong shape.  Plus they would have seen it.  Read the testimony please.

I'm not saying that it is that.  As I have said a myriad of times when something looks as vivid as this what could the options actually be?  Also read the testimony; they didn't see it when during photo graph which means that it was travelling very fast.

There are no super sonic balloons. :blush:
