This mysterious image of a UFO shooting across the sky was captured in Devon by a bridge worker.

Gary McDermott snapped the glowing red object, with bright flashing lights, after stopping his car to photograph a low-flying helicopter in Plymouth.

The disc-shaped UFO flashed across the sky - just as he was taking the picture - before it disappeared into the night at 9pm on Sunday.

Mr McDermott, who was working night shifts on the city's famous Royal Albert Bridge, said: "I just couldn't believe what I had just seen.

"It must have been a UFO - and I cannot believe I am saying that because I don't believe in them usually.

hmmm....so he stops to take picture of a low flying helicopter (at night).....would that work?

Quote

It came into shot just as I took the picture - then as soon as I said to my mate 'look what I have just seen', it disappeared

either way, he is now taking his photo and he says the object came into shot.....so where is the helicopter in the photo?

I live in Devon, seen loads of police helicopters, rescue helicopters and other air craft at night, would be great to think we had UFOs as well!

I don't want to spoil his fun at all, but it looks very much like lens flare from the street Lamp.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

Someone with more time than me could maybe get the location, then google earth and take a good look at the design of those streetlamps to compare it to the 'craft'.  I'm betting lens flare too, and it would be fairly easy to verify.

Are we serious here? This is the 3rd (I believe :hmm:)  photo of a "UFO" that is nothing more than light play off the lens. Either being shot through a window, thus the double "UFO" pictures/video's we've seen lately as cars and street lights pass the lens and window, and then this obvious lens flare shot.  Is 2012 the year humans digress in their knowledge and common sense exponentially?

It has to be lens flare, I don't think the thing loves the camera that much to just jump into the shot. He should have took another one to be certain.

2012 might be the year of the Dragon but it seems its promising to be a year of BS. We're going to have to live with it too, right up until Dec 21st since every insignificant event will be attributed to that bloody Mayan calendar.

No, but it may be the culmination of a process that began with the the launch of the internet...

The thing that people forget about lens flare ......is that you only get lens flare by looking through a lens !!!!      Its quite obvious from the shot (straight into the sky) that the guy has seen something - and then taken a picture through a lens......                                      SO WHAT WAS IT HE SAW BEFORE TAKING A PICTURE-        EYEBALL FLARE??
