UFO Photographed during Carnival


Editor: Black dot has been enlarged and noise has been added using Adobe Photoshop.

Name: Ray GilbertName of
Photo: Carnival Flypast
Date of Sighting: Saturday, June 20, 2006
Place of Sighting: Grantham, England
Ray Gilbert from Montrose Close, Grantham saw his second UFO in as many years on June 20, 2006. Mr. Gilbert was attending the Grantham Carnival and was snapping photos of the various airplanes going through their maneuvers overhead.
He is an amateur photographer and was amazed to see a black object in his photo of a Dakota airplane. He is positive he didn't see it as he captured the photo with his digital camera. He only became aware of the strange object while examining his photos. Commenting on what was in the photo, he said, "When I saw it a chill went down my back and everyone I've told says I should inform the Ministry of Defence. I know it's a UFO and I'm wondering if anyone else saw the same thing."
When enlarging the photo on his computer he claims the object has a flat top and has a red rim!
He states that he saw his first UFO last year while traveling to Lincoln.
Mr. Gilbert adds, "I took more photos of the flypast but this is the only one with a dot on it."

Don't know what it is, but but to see a flat top he must have a lot better vision than I do.

Carnival, huh? Wouldn't perchance be any balloons going up and down and around, huh like most other carnivals and such? .00000000001 chance I'd say. :) 100.00000000001 percent chance, that is.

Its the sun. Point any camera at the sun and snap a photo and you'll get this exact same effect.

oh, so the sun appears in FRONT of clouds. right. youre an idiot.

Hmm.... Never seen a black sun before. Furthermore, my Sony DSC-P52, when aimed directly at the sun in a cloudless sky, returned a picture of a blindingly brilliant YELLOW sun (also showed a star-like object a few degrees behind and slightly below the sun) (25 Nov 06/2:30 PM). It did NOT look anything like a black, hard-edged, perfectly circular object as depicted in the posted photo. Whatever the object was, it certainly was NOT the sun!

I've seen a lot of airborne balloons in my day; not a single one of them looked like the object shown.

Seems to me that this is a real, no-kiddin' UFO.

I think it is a balloon, makes sense because there is a carnival.

it's a balloon...

not the sun, lol

Has anyone thought to notice the size of the round object to the size of the airplane, Ive seen UFOs appeare and disappear, even move clouds in different directions of one-another, like a curtin opening. Remember their intelagence is far more advanced then ours.

I would say that it could be a balloon, but for the opacity of the object. No light whatsoever is penetrating that object. Were it a mylar balloon, it wouldn't present that profile. Whereas a solid, nontransparent object, like the plane pictured, produces a dark, backlit shadow. Then again, not seeing the original file, it could be photoshopped.

Enlargement of dot in original photo was done by Dirk Vander Ploeg of UFODigest.com. Photo was taken without permission.

Permission would have been granted FREE, all I request is a return link.

I found original story and rewrote it for my website. Notice I give a link back to original story link.

Not a balloon. If it is, it's not the shape of your average balloon that gets released at a carnival. Also, this object appears that it is at a higher altitude than the plane. But, at the same time, the object is larger than the nose of the airplane. Your typical balloon is not larger than the nose of an airplane. I would bet on the sun, behind the clouds, coming through before I would say balloon. Stil, would think that if it was the sun, it wouldnt show up as black. Did the photographer use any filters over his lense on this shot?

As mentioned earlier, it IS the sun. If you haven't seen this effect before then you don't have much experience with digital photography. The position of the sun also explains why the underside of the plane is so dark in the picture.

I have plenty of digital experience, pointed cameras at the sun before..never had this effect. Your a moron..

It is the sun. I have several pictures taken with the sun in the backround looking identical to this one. Yes, it appeared black..

Anonymous said...

Yeah, it's the sun. You can see how bright it is around the dot and how duller the light becomes farther away.

Don't take pictures of the sun. You risk burning a hole in your CCD, then you can enjoy black circles in all your digital pictures.

Uh...like you see UFO, then watch movie for me! Almost like Burt Reyonlds on street show with Oskar Grouch, and Earnie was his friend!

Hi Guys,
I usually collect info from the web and post it for you guys to read.

Drik,
Usually when I post something from other sites I do give it a link back, which in your case I missed. Sorry for that, I've edited the post and linked it to your web site.

Hey Guys,

Stop calling each other moron.

Maybe the black dot was photoshopped in, maybe not?

All that I know, is that it is not the sun and it is not like any balloon that I've seen at a fair. You might as well try to call it swamp gas with the plane - C-47 or Dakota in the lower part of the photo. Nobody wants to argue that the plane isn't real or was photoshopped in. So, why should the black dot be anything other than what it appears to be?

Just let it be and stop trying to pick each other apart!

Sorry, but as a photographer, I do have to say that it IS the Sun. The sun produces such a bright light that it WILL have this eefect on some digital cameras. And this WILL damage the camera.

It's Elvis and Bigfoot returning to earth from the planet Gorp! They are going to kidnap Oliver Stone and Rosie O'Donnel and take them back to the planet Gorp where they will make porno movies together. After the Gorpians conquer the earth and enslave all the people; we'll be forced to watch Oliver and Rosie doing the nasty 24 hours a day as part of the Gorpian plan of brainwashing all humanity. People of earth! Hear me! Rise up! We must throw of the chains of bondage that bind us to the evil Gorpian society!

Saw something just like that once in the mountains of North Carolina. It took off into space at a "one oclock" angle at an amazing speed. The craft I saw left a trail of what looked like sparks to me.

I have seen homemade digital movies taken of the overhead sky taken in Colorado in the past year. 4 video cameras were used simultaneously. They used different focal lengths to rule out bugs and birds. I have seen clear evidence of craft both circular, bell-shaped and rod and cigar shaped objects traveling at thousands of miles per hour, winking out of sight, making course corrections without radius influenced vectors, and hiding in a cloudy haze of an apparent cloaking mechanism.

This neither confirms nor denies the truth of the photographers assertation that the round object is an off planet craft. It does however add a piece of anecdotal storytelling to the mass of these stories worldwide.

Everyone's "logical explanations" for UFO's have never been logical.People's intelligence has been maligned on so many occasions over the years, that it isn't even funny. It would be a lot more honest and believable to admit that no one knows what these things are for sure. The best thing to do is keep an open mind. Anything is possible. No one said we have the monopoly on life or technology for that matter. It's not logical to believe that an entire universe with galaxies beyond galaxies was created just for us. Land the balloon non-believers.

Whatever it is has been added to the original picture ... save the image, zoom in, and the pixelization around the 'ufo' is quite obvious.

Definite fake.

I will never ID myself you Gorpian slime! Myself, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will hunt you down and keep you from destroying our world! I Know for a fact you were NOT SCUBA diving because I was in the Bermuda Triangle all week with Pamela Anderson after she and Kid Rock broke up. She needed me to console and comfort her. Now that she has recharged my batteries; I have gotten Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to help protect the planet from you Gorpian thugs. As everyone knows...Keith cannot be killed with any normal weapons. Your time is soon Gorpian splooge and we will never submit to you! As the REAL Elvis would say....It's just a hunka' hunka' burnin' love!

I live near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the U.S. and on July 4, 2006, while attending a Phillies baseball game, I saw the exact same object travel directly over my head. At first, when I looked at it, I assumed it was a balloon. Because I thought it was a balloon, I didn't say anything to any of my 3 sons who were sitting next to me in the stadium. But I kept watching it and noticed that it was moving in a perfectly straight line. There was no random movement like a balloon has when it is being blown back and forth by wind currents. It was quiet and made no audible sound. I also noticed that it was moving at a velocity that was far too great to be the wind. Once I realized it was not a balloon, the object was much farther away but I still asked my sons to look at it. However, they were not able to find it in the few additional seconds that it remained visible. After that, it was simply too far away to see it with the naked eye. I am a vetern of the U.S. Navy, and I've flown aircraft before. I can assure you that what I saw that day was not a conventional winged airplane or a helicopter. It was black and I'm fairly certain it was spherical because it never lost its circular shape, regardless of its change in distance, azimuth angle or altitude angle. This was the first and only time in my life that I have seen a flying object that I could not identify. I'm not claiming that it was of extraterrestrial origin. But I am 100% certain that what I saw was not a balloon, was not a convential aircraft and was not any aircraft that is currently known by the public. And, this object that I saw looked exactly like the object in that picture.

Soon Dick Cheney will arrive and take you quail hunting and Teddy Kennedy will be driving the car, and you'll be forced to listen to Yoko Ono singing. I burst my pimples at you and fart in your general direction!! Next I will have Art Bell and Jeff Rense make fun of your ancestors. Now go away or I will taunt you a second time.

Obviously there are TWO UFO's present in this photo. The second is obscured from view by the first. Why are there two? What are they afraid of? I will check the Bible (King James) for answers.

That's not a UFO. It's my wig. That green blooded, pointy eared Spock, tossed it out the window of the Enterprise while we were on planet Gorp. We had to put Uhura and Chekov in the old folks home and we had to bury that quack McCoy and fat pig Scotty too. Right now I wish I could punch out that bald geek, Picard and I'd go back to being on TJ Hooker. I really miss Adrian Zhmed and Heather Locklear. I'd like to invite all the Gorpians over to my place for a swim.
