They must have been using an iPhone as the camera and accidently upgraded to IOS6, so it could be both :ninja:

^ It looks like the saucer is in mostly invisible mode -- but the camera can pick up partial light radiation from it -- in the infared range.


I don't know how anyone can be so willfully ignorant, Why is it on the road ?

It could be both. ;) Lens flare over the UFO.

This entire universe could be an elaborate computer simulation. Big whop

Yep. Definitely Apple's fault!

Once again, the photo is low resolution, how convenient. It's odd how people carrying DSLR's or even a decent digital camera never sight a UFO. :rolleyes:

It was made by Google street view cameras, and is 'blown up'.

It was not a deliberate photograph of a recognized object -- no one was looking for it.

How clear do you expect it to be ? :laugh:

It is one static picture of a moment in time. Even an airplane might be dim, fuzzy, questionable.

It could be flare -- or something else.

Also, few people are looking for unknown craft flying thru the skies, are carrying good cameras, and are adept at using the camera.

And 'aliens' do not often pose, or fly at low altitudes, and low speeds.
