Now I dont usually post stuff in favor of UFO pics,...but Im making an exception as it will no doubt arrive here anyway. So, a good pic of daylight UFO's - right?

Posted Image



part of the guys story says:

"The 42-year-old from Basingstoke said: "They were heading south-west at speed towards Basingstoke - quicker than any normal aircraft.

"They were there for less than five seconds."

But he still managed to snap them?

So now -  a comment under the article points out...and I quote:

"Was making a call? Were there for 5 seconds? Keen interest in ET 's? Probably fake since on average it takes more than 5 seconds to locate and open the camera app then you have to line your phone up to focus and then theres the shutter speed to calculate. I think this is FAKED!"


Now I would tend to agree with that comment... you decide!!

Frankly, I do not think the lights are fake, but definitely the explanation is. The lights to me looks like a reflection or some such, but what do I know :P

I tend to discount single photos these days, especially of lights in the sky, because of the ease of manipulation via computers and simple illusions.
I can get a clear photo of a jumbo jet with my camera phone and it's a fairly old phone. Now, unless I'm wildly off base here, either the UFOs are at the same height as the planes so they're visible to the human eye - and thus decernablely and object in flight, or they're too high to reflect anything even light (which is why we don't see satellites during the day) because of the ambient light from that big ball of burning gases.

just took me 8.5s to get my phne out, start the camera, point & shoot.
I can start the phone app by just pressing the shoot button, no messing around with menus, so 8.5s is pretty quick.....

I wouldn't put or base too much weight
on the mentioned '5' seconds ...

Posted Image


usually in media reports and police reports exaggeration roams free .. same as fishing with the 'one' that got away ...
the lights in the picture posted doesn't look very far too me ... so most probably its not too large an object ... or objects...

would be nice to have the original file to look at closer ...

To me, it looks like the classic 'recessed ceiling lights reflected in the window' shot. Note that there are two similar but dim pairs of 'objects' in the sky to the lower left of the bright discs. Further reflections?

My thoughts exactly...if a few frames existed of said shapes, lights, craft...moving across the image, then sure its worth examination.

the sky looks over cast ... don;t know what 8pm looks like over there but reflections won't hit that intensity in ambient conditions ... unless we have search lights shooting straight up ... but then the streams would show ...

I don't know what it is since I wasn't there but it doesn't look like a reflection, too overcast for that.  Could be real, who knows with Photoshop.  Lots of sightings over the years, don't think they are all making it up.

The paper/media site in question is known locally for its poor reporting - note reporting not journalism.
If the user was practised in getting to the camera on this phone why didn't he shoot video?  The photo is poor IQ, but certainly looks like light reflections in/on glass.

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

Surely someone reading this lives within a short drive?  If so, can you let us know, and I'll make a few suggestions as to how you can be involved in a little analysis..

Closer than me...  Anyway, that only took a few minutes, so who knows who might turn up..  Maybe we should post some requests on some localised discussion boards..

For the record, the lights look exactly like reflected interior lights to me, suggesting that it was taken indoors behind glass in a fairly dim room lit by downlights.  You cannot possibly tell whether the intensity of the lights is too bright or too dim - the outside ambient light could only be worked out by looking at the image's exif data (if any), and even then, internal lighting can easily appear as reflections even in bright sunny daylight.  Happy to post examples if that is disputed..

Just another pub wanting attention, I'm guessing..
