Description: These photos were taken 10 AM Sunday, 20 October from my home balcony in Sofia, Bulgaria. There are approximately 12 more shots. On the pole there is a spotlight which was off at the time. The camera was a Fuji Fine Pix. I have no idea what the object was.

Update – October 23, 2013 – New Information Received From Witness: Hi again William.
I live approximately 10 minutes away from Sofia Airport, and have see many aircraft. I was sitting on the balcony which is open (no windows) enjoying a cup of coffee. I saw the strange object. I went inside, got my camera and took the photos. The object was moving side to side and was visible to the naked eye. The object was also seen by my partner. (My partner is a school teacher.)

Prior to my moving to Sofia Bulgaria I lived in Turkey. I worked for Turkish Tourism as a photographer for 14 years and have taken many photos.

Over the last two years I have been assigned to take photos both from air sea and land in Russia, Greece Portugal, the United Kingdom, Spain, Gibraltar, Cyprus and Switzerland. Some clients actually call me a pro. Should you wish I can take the same shots from exactly the same place when a aircraft flies by the pole.

Note: Analysis indicates that photos are authentic and not fabricated. It appears that the object is behind the pole and not between the photographer and pole. At first it looked as if the object was moved back and forth, but this could have an effect of camera angle and some camera zoom of object. After some reflection I believe that the object (streak) could be an aircraft contrail.

Note – (Update – Oct 24, 2013): Given the recent information from the witness this object was likely not a contrail, spider web, bird, etc. Two people saw the object and the witness is a professional photographer which adds credibility to the photos.

    This looks like a object that was shot with a home video camera about ten years or more ago. I saw it on one of the TV shows that was on every week showing UFO sightings and films taken by some governments. I don’t remember the name of the show off hand. I have no clue as to what this is.

    Analysis indicates that photos are authentic and not fabricated? So are saying it is a object that cannot be explained. Are there any more photos please?

  3. Jack L. Metcalfe says:

    A spider web would be my guess. Go out on any Fall day with clear skies, shield the sun behind a house roof or (in this case) a pole and you’ll see lots of these. They appear as strands, round, really all sorts of shapes. There are more early in the Fall and fewer later in the season.

    That sort of knocks the spider web theory. I think this professional photographer may just have something. A quick google search on UFOS in Bulgaria reveals that on Aug 10, 2013 Bulgaria UFO Video Under Scrutiny By Ex-FBI Agent Ben Hansen. The latest UFO buzz is a fast-moving glowing ball of light from Bulgaria.

    Is Bulgaria more prone to strange sightings?

      Thanks. I agree with your comments that this is a credible sighting. I don’t think that Bulgaria has a disproportionate number of sightings. The witness sent some aircraft photos taken at the same location. I plan to post some of those photos.
