This sort of reporting give UFO research a bad name!
In my inbox this morning is this news article from the DailyMail website out of the UK. This is crap reporting at its best! I am not an optical expert, but I would lay my $50 on the table that the solution to the question “what is in this photo” is a lens flare.
Here is an excerpt from the original article:
In a shot eerily similar to a scene from the blockbuster film Independence Day, an unidentified flying object hovers over the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest.
The man who took the photograph of the flying saucer in Romania’s capital has spoken of his shock at his brief encounter.
Cosmin Garlesteanu described getting a strange feeling while taking a picture of the imposing government building, and was stunned when he looked back at his snap to see a strange green and blue light beaming down on it.
Inside the beam there appears to be two elliptical shapes hovering above the grand structure.
The image mirrors a famous scene from Hollywood’s Independence Day, starring Will Smith, where a spaceship appears above the White House in Washington and blows it up.
The photograph, taken on February 4, has attracted global interest after Mr Garlesteanu uploaded it onto a photo-sharing website.
Viewers around the world have been coming up with a host of theories about what the unusual sight could be.
Am I wrong? What does this picture show?
If you think I am wrong and have a better idea what this picture of what is supposedly a UFO over the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest actually shows, please let me know! I would love to hear your theory on what was actually captured in this photograph.
