Another UFO, Over the Netherlands
In a commentary accompanying the photos of the Netherlands UFO, Federer stated that she heard or saw no aircraft, but she noticed the object while viewing the photos. As usual, the image of the UFO is blurred. Federer explained that the five photos were taken within one second at a shutter speed of 1/250 of a second. She said the blurred image could be explained by the enormous speed of the object. In her opinion, it was not a bird or insect.
“The object’s appearance is internally consistent with the rest of the photo. For instance, look at the darker area of the underside of the object compared with the clouds. The shadowing is similar on the underside as well as the lighting on the top of the object and the clouds where the sun is brightest. Having the sun in the frame is helpful because it indicates where shadows should appear,” he continued.
The S-shaped fins appear too short to be wings, which an insect would require. However, Huffington Post states that they consulted Ben Hansen, host of a SyFy Channel program that investigates paranormal events. Hansen’s opinion was that the photo had not been manipulated, but the image was most likely an insect.
These photos are an interesting addition to the voluminous gallery of UFO photos. It would be interesting to see a few images that are sharply defined.
In 2012, there were 2,000 reported UFO sightings, setting a new record.
