Someone found this UFO in a photo of Cape; it seems to blend into the photo perfectly with the correct amount of lighting on it. I was not sure this was legit so I used Google Earth to find it myself. It was easy and fast…and it was there.Just because its clear, do not assume its fake.Digital cameras can see outside of the spectrum of the human eye catching colors and objects that you did not see there at the time of taking the photo. Of course they did not see it, yet the camera could. Posted Image Read more...

you can't just claim "photoshop", this doesnt look immediately shopped to me, i dont have google earth so can someone validate that this UFO exists where the video says it does.

I find it hard to believe that the person who posted the video faked the image, i find it hard to believe someone else would fake a UFO in cape town, africa.....

This video is interesting


*EDIT* saw the post on the news page, didnt show the attached thumbnail. What exactly about your image means its been photoshopped?

Why does everyone automatically scream PHOTOSHOP?
There are quite a few pictures out there of real UFO's (Unidentified Flying Objects), most taken in the USA, some from the UK and other European countries, even a few from Asia.

What? Is South Africa too "back-water" or "wrong-side-of-the-tracks" for everyone to assume that we may or may not have UFO's?

sorry, i did some photoshop work on the image and tried to post it, (contrast, hue, saturation) the image looks a little odd, not sure why it didn't post. I'll try again

Nowhere near as hard as tramping around in a field in the middle of the night making a crop circle :) People do this sort of thing because they enjoy it, nothing is too much trouble!

Looking at it though, I would say photoshop too :)

What was the excuse before Photoshop existed? When a picture is blurry, "It's too blurry." When it's clear, "It's too clear." It has to  be faked, either way.
Can anyone agree that SOME Saucer pictures are actually REAL?

Once again, another hoax.

It's not made by google, it's made by some random guy named Vasiliy Nikitenko who apparently made it as a joke to get more traffic to his website.

Another site it's on:
http://www.360cities...#0.00,0.00,70.0

The fake:

I think Google does this on purpose...like games developers put in 'easter eggs'.
