My daily venture over to the MUFON reports yesterday yielded an interesting find. I can honestly say, I’ve never seen a UFO quite like this one.
City: Cougar, WA
Event Date: 07/25/2011
I saw this objects shape, bright white, green bluish lights emanating and a series of dark spots forming a band from side to side
Photos are as follows:
On July 25, 2011 I was in Swift Forest Camp, located in Swift Lake Reservoir, Skamania County in Washington State. It was around 8:45 pm while I was sitting by the lake, the sun started to set.
I ran back to my campsite to retrieve my camera, then ran back to the lake shore, by the time I got the camera ready to photograph the sunset, I was only able to take one photo before the sun disappeared behind the mountains.
The scenary was beautiful so I decided to take some photos.
The sky had turned fairly dark except in the lower part of the horizon where I could still see the fainting suns glow and the outline of the mountains and trees. It was a clear night and there was nothing visible in the sky.
While viewing the photos , I noticed a bright object high above the mountains outline, this object was not visible when I took the photos.
I was puzzled so naturally, I decided to look closer and using a graphics program, I enlarged them to get a better look, I dont remember the last time my jaw dropped the way it did when I saw this objects shape, bright white, green bluish lights emanating and a series of dark spots forming a band from side to side, there is an orange-yellow glow in the lower side as if the sun was reflecting off some kind of metallic surface.
This thing seem to be invisible to the naked eye and only showed in the photos.
It does not look like any conventional aircraft I’m familiar with, what’s more, it appeared to be moving, judging by its position in relation to the mountains below it.
Ive attached the three photographs to this e-mail.
As I often point out, keeping a watchful eye out for hoaxes on the MUFON Reporting Database is not only a good idea, it’s a must. Anyone who checks the reports from day to day knows that names and contact information is never available. Furthermore, my contacts at MUFON won’t say a word about ongoing investigations. Therefore, as of this year, I have mandated myself to do as much media analysis as possible prior to posting on anything from MUFON. That’s not to say I didn’t do my due diligence before, but in past years my access to certain tools was limited. Of course I can’t catch everything, but at least I can eliminate examples which are suspect.
That said, I did take the final photo above and enlarge the object as you can see below:
I spent about 30 minutes scanning the enlarged photo as well as the others until I was satisfied. Then came one final analysis with an error correction program. Here is the result of that error correction:
Based on error correction, we can say with almost 100% certainty that the object in question has not been added, nor has there been any layering attempted. For those who don’t understand, if there were any layering or manipulation, the correction would show the offender as a much lighter blotch. While we can see the faint shape of the object, it still blends into the background. That tells me it’s legitimate.
Now, what are we seeing? For all intent and purpose, it’s a UFO my friends. I’d love to say it’s some sort of interstellar ship, but I wasn’t able to go on board.
If anyone has something to add, by all means, speak up in the comments below.
