Daily Mail ‘UFO Photo’: Not What It Seems

Photo of "UFO" Off the Coast of Cornwall

 

The Daily Mail has published what they claim is a photograph of a UFO off the Cornish Coast. In the article, the image is said to be of a UFO, or possibly a USO emerging from the depths of the ocean.

“The person who took the photo never saw anything in the area while taking the photo.

It was only when he got home and downloaded it onto his computer that he saw an object – a disc shaped craft, hovering just above the sea.

‘There appear to be two trails of water beneath the object which looks as though they are falling from it in to the sea.

It could be that the object has just emerged from the sea.’ “

Of course this is from the Daily Mail, a publication whose “paranormal” photos we’ve debunked many a time.  So what do I make of this stereotypical 1950s metallic flying saucer?

I think it’s fairly easy to see that this is not what it appears to be. The UFO shape that we see is just the distortion of a fast flying seagull. Check it out:

 

 

What do you guys think? Mystery solved?

Spotting a UFO is not the kind of sight-seeing you expect to find when you go on holiday.

But that is exactly what one man chanced upon without even realising it when he thought he was taking a picturesque photograph of the sea.

The witness had been taking a stroll in Black Head at Trenarren near St Austell, Cornwall at around 5pm on August 1, when he pulled out his camera to capture a snap of the sea

In a strange twist, it was not until he later downloaded the photograph from his digital camera onto his computer that he noticed the mysterious ‘flying object’ hovering above.

The photograph of the circular object has now been unveiled at the Cornwall UFO Research Group (CUFORG), which was founded by Dave Gillham in 1995.

He said: ‘The person who took the photo never saw anything in the area while taking the photo.

‘It was only when he got home and downloaded it onto his computer that he saw an object – a disc shaped craft, hovering just above the sea.

‘There appear to be two trails of water beneath the object which looks as though they are falling from it in to the sea.

‘It could be that the object has just emerged from the sea.’

Mr Gillham could not shed any further light on the origins of the object, which has left many scratching their heads for an explanation.

Other observers have a more straight forward answer – it is merely a seagull doing to the loo mid-flight.

A spokesman for the Royal Navy air base at nearby Culdrose confirmed that no military aircraft were in the area at the time.

He said: ‘Culdrose did not have any aircraft airborne after 5pm on Monday August 1 so any helicopter in the St Austell area was not one of ours.

‘As the airfield was closed until approximately 19.00 when the SAR was scrambled to an incident at Newquay the radar was not manned between 17.00 and 19.00.

‘It is always possible of course that a civilian helicopter could have been in the vicinity of St Austell around 17.14.’

I'm a writer, a runner, and a hell of a coffee drinker residing in Los Angeles. I'm currently working on a book about Doris Bither and her terrifying account of a haunting in Culver City, California. The case was dubbed "The Entity" and it stands to be one of the most controversial cases ever to be studied by parapsychologists.

    Cappy, I think it has more to do with the fact that everyone now has a camera in their pocket all the time, and snap photos like Japanese tourists everywhere they go without really seeing what they are looking at, meanwhile claiming it is for the sake of preserving the moment.

    First of all, the “two trails of water” must be ships with sail…

    The comparison between UFO and seagull is a very good example of how we can be deceived, but the comparison is not entirely accurate in my opinion. The seagull’s head and beak do not seem to match exactly to the front end of this UFO, which has a very sharp edge…

    I wud 100% guarantee its a Seagull!!! I lived in Mevagissey, (not far from Black Head) & many times I have been annoyed at my pics of my friends jumpin of Meva harbour – because there is a bloody seagull (lookin jus like that image) in the background (normally dive-bombin a holiday maker wiv food!!), messin up my photo!!! Do the people who take these pics live in some isolated part of the country, where they have never seen a seagull before!!!! This just makes me laugh!!!!!
