A new UFO image is stirring up the internet, and at least one expert is saying that it’s real.. sort of.
The bizarre image was captured by photographer Corinne Federer during a trip to Muiderslot Castle near Amsterdam with her mother on May 25.
“It was a tubular-shaped object that had an S-shaped fin on it. If it had been any type of missile, it would’ve had multiple fins, but facing the same direction. We heard nothing, it was completely quiet out. The more I flipped through the frames, it was kind of creepy,” Federer told reporters. “I’ve been shooting for quite some time and I’ve seen other stuff in the news, but I’ve never seen anything [like this] with my own eye. I couldn’t wait to get home where I could blow it up and see what was really there. I looked at the image information — at the shutter speed — and (the object) was blurred at 1/250th of a second, so it had to be going superfast.”
Since the image began going viral, the debate has raged over whether or not the photograph was actually manipulated, a trend that is becoming an even easier way to fool the media thanks to free camera phone applications with the ability to doctor images with the flick of a finger. But Ben Hansen, a former FBI agent most popularly known from his time on SyFy Channel’s Fact or Faked, said he believes the image is real.
“Having reviewed the raw files, there’s no overt indication that the photos have been manipulated with post editing software,” he said told The Latino Press. “Having the sun in the frame is helpful because it indicates where shadows should appear. This further supports that the object was photographed ‘in-camera’ and not added later.”
On the subject of the strange object actually being a flying craft from another planet, Hansen wasn’t quite as supportive.
“If I had to place my money on it, I would say that we’re looking at insects.”
Here’s hoping he doesn’t mean the big ones from outer space.
