It seems that on May 7th a UFO was spotted over a historic barn in Santee, California. Ellen Henry, who is a member of the Santee Historical Society, photographed what appeared to be a UFO hovering over the historical Edgemoor Barn earlier this month.
“I was at the Edgemoor property, in the middle of the day, to take pics of the barn to update the SHS barn logo. I was constantly looking up and around the area, including the sky’s background, so I can get it just right, and not at anytime did I see anything in the sky or heard a sound of an aircraft,” Henry told local ABC TV affiliate News 10.
It wasn’t until after the photo was taken that Henry noticed what what floating in the skies above. It was originally thought to be a spot on her camera lens which wouldn’t wipe off.
“It was clear and certainly not a bug,” she said.
She said that she had been trying to take photos of the barn for quite a while that afternoon and never noticed anything flying above.
She also added that there was no way it could have been a commercial aircraft of any sort as she would’ve noticed that sound immediately.
“I noticed a ‘speck’ on my LCD screen after I took the shot to check for clarity, and only realized it wasn’t a speck when I downloaded it on my computer.”
According to the Huff Post, the Edgemoor Barn — now a museum — just celebrated its 100th birthday. It was once part of a hospital facility and has developed a reputation for paranormal activity, including alleged ghost sightings.
“The barn sits under several flight paths,” said Janet Kwak in her on-air 10News report. “We called Gillespie Field and MCAS Miramar (Marine Corps Air Station), but neither could offer an explanation.”
“There is no way this was a commercial aircraft,” Henry said. “I would have heard it, especially as low as it seemed to be. Someone did mention perhaps it was a drone. However, I have not seen any drones that were round or oval, and lacking wings, rudders or propellers — even the drone that looks like a fly has wings.”
In another surprising chain of events, Henry said that immediately after she captured the now infamous photo, her camera stopped working.
