UFO photo makes big news in Indonesia
20 October 2009
The latest Asian country to succumb to UFO fever appears to be Indonesia. A clear photo (as seen above) of a UFO or extraterrestrial spaceship was allegedly taken in the capital city of Jakarta. The photographer claimed not to have been aware of the UFO in the image until he downloaded the photo, taken with a cell phone camera, onto his computer.
The news of the flying saucer then ‘spread like wildfire’ through the city. Many somehow linked the UFO to recent natural disasters that have occurred in Indonesia. Others declared the photo a hoax.
A number of photographic experts who examined the photo declared it to be a probable fake. According to these experts the saucer was way to clear and detailed and it would have been impossible to do this on a mobile phone: especially if the object is moving at the time.
Our UFO expert Michael Cohen remarked that ‘it is almost certainly fake as the image is very similiar to other probable fakes, however: UFO sceptics and debunkers have created a catch-22, either a UFO is a blurry blob and then the comment will be made as to why those filming these objects can never hold their camera still. If it is too clear it will immediately be dismissed as computer generated graphics. Their pre-conceived ideas that humans alone populate the universe inform the outcome of any investigation.
‘It is possible, though not likely, that this and other similar images are genuine captures of the same extraterrestrial craft in different parts of globe’.
