A pair of amateur photographs examined by UFO hunters supposedly show a disk of alien origin flying at great speed in Basque Country, northern Spain. The first of intriguing images shows an odd anomaly apparently close to the tip of a mountain in Zumarraga, which is vaguely rectangular in shape and its pink colour is easily visible against the dark mountain.
The second photo shows a not dissimilar shape a little further away.
Self-styled ET expert Scott Waring suggests the pictures depict a fast-moving UFO.
Writing on his UFO Sightings Daily blog, Mr Waring said: “UFOs often move too fast for the human eye to detect.
“Aliens rely on that technology skill to avoid detection.
“However cell phones and cameras are getting more advanced and have a more perfect eye than our own.
“They capture every detail. So that is is [to] our advantage.
“We too have tech skills to fall on.
“This is a perfect disk and caught in two different positions.
“Absolutely breathtaking. I have often said, if you want to see a UFO, watch a dozen sunsets. You will see at least one.”
The controversial alien life conspiracy theorist also provides what he claims is a quote from the eyewitness.
They said in a statement: “I was just trying to take a beautiful picture of the sunset.
“I felt something different that day in the sky but I couldn’t see clearly the object with my eyes.
“It was the picture with the phone which took perfectly the object.”
However, even a casual observer can tell the two pictures have simply been distorted by lens flare caused by the setting sun shining onto the camera’s lens.
The phenomenon of UFO sightings shows no sign of abating, probably driven by the near ubiquity of smartphone cameras.
Earth so far remains the only known source of intelligent life in the Universe.
The overwhelming majority of apparent UFO sightings can be easily by explained through a phenomenon known as pareidolia.
This is a form of apophenia, which accounts for the people’s unconscious bias to perceive recognisable shapes and patterns where they do not actually exist.
