View Slide of 4 Photos of Flying Saucer (YouTube):
Description: Hi Bill: I was sky watching looking through the viewfinder on my Sony HX300 camera when I spotted two planes passing each other. I had my camera set to burst mode and took ten photographs of the planes. While I was taking the photographs I thought I saw an object pass between the two planes. On later inspection of the photographs I could clearly see that the object that I saw was in fact a flying saucer. The flying saucer was in four of the photographs. The speed of this flying saucer was simply incredible. The photographs were taken on the 5th of May 2016, 1:20 PM GMT at Newton Abbot Devon UK.
Note: We have received several photos in the past few years from this witness. I have never shown that any of his photos were fabricated. I don’t know for sure if the object in the above photo and animation is a flying disk or a camera artifact. I leave it up to the readers to draw their own conclusion.
Photo Analysis (Performed by David Mason): Hi Bill:
I examined the photos of the two aircrafts with an unusual object appearing to go between them at a high rate of speed. The object could have been a few hundred feet from the camera and the depth of field would have been sufficient for acceptable focus, thus giving it an appearance of being at the same distance as the aircrafts. There’s no indication of photo editing. When selecting the object in the four photos and increasing the sample size 1000% to improve resolution the object of interest changes in appearance in each photo. In one photo it’s a fuzzy patch with no distinct shape. It does appear to be a dark brown color. In other photos it appears elongated with a fuzzy patch in the central area. This would be consistent with how a bird in flight would appear when photographed during various wing positions and angular body rotation relative to the camera. Although with the limited resolution in all photos, the object can’t be confirmed.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
