UFO sighting in Cornwall UK - photo 'may be genuine'

UFO | Cornwall | May be genuine

THIS stunning photo of a UFO over Cornwall was last night hailed by experts as one of the best ever taken in Britain.

The classic flying saucer shape is seen above two ships.

And UFO watchers believe it could be proof we are NOT alone.

Kelvin Barbery snapped the mystery object from a coastal path between Swanpool and Maenporth, near Falmouth.

In a weird twist, Kelvin, 55, did not even see the UFO at the time.

He thought he was just taking a sea view — but when he loaded the digital camera card on to his computer, the round metallic “craft” was in the centre of the shot, about two miles away.

Kelvin, a facilities manager for schools, said: “There were a couple of tankers out in the bay and I thought that it made a nice shot.

“There was nothing in view and certainly no fault on the camera.

“When I got home I couldn’t believe what I had. I thought, ‘Wow, where did that come from?’ I’m not the sort to believe in UFOs — now I’m not so sure.”

Nick Pope, one of Britain’s foremost UFO experts, said the photo was one of the best he had seen.

Nick, formerly the official Ministry of Defence UFO analyst, said: “If I was still there I’d be looking at this very closely. The object looks structured, symmetrical and metallic. This man has caught something very interesting indeed.”

Michael Soper, of the Contact International UFO group, agreed: “This does appear genuine. Digital photos can be doctored but everything about it appears consistent.”

KELVIN took his picture at 3.31pm on December 29, with a Nikon D80 Digital SLR on automatic.

    BRITAIN is turning into an alien nation according to Sun readers who have flooded us with reports of UFO sightings.
    Following our story of a UFO seen off Cornwall on December 29 we were inundated by calls from people who had similar things all over the country.
    Some claimed they had seen alien spacecraft off the same bay in Cornwall where our original UFO was snapped.
    A man who asked just to be called Edward snapped a strange shaped object which appeared to be 'buzzing' a Navy ship.
    He said: "I was taking photos of the ship when a helicopter from it took off, flew west then landed back on board just a few minutes later.
    "It was only when I blew up the photos on my computer that I realised what the helicopter had gone off to take a look at.
    "It was in the exact same bay as the one featured in The Sun earlier this week." American holidaymaker Ian Mulford also believes he snapped a UFO at virtually the same spot as Edward.
    Ian said:"I was taking photographs and did not see anything unusual at the time, but after reviewing the pictures I found something very unusual in the background of a picture of one of the family.
    ‘ It didn't look like any normal aircraft so I am sure it is a UFO ’EYEWITNESS
    Partygoer Rodga Harvey claims he snapped a UFO as he made his way home from a party on New Years eve.
    Rodga, from St.Ives, said:"It was only when I looked at the photo later that I realised there was this weird flying object in the sky.
    "It didn't look like any normal aircraft so I am sure it is a UFO."
    Mum of one Rachel Clarke, 25, is totally convinced that she filmed two UFOs flying above the skies above Borehamwood on New Year's Day.
    Rachel said: "I was standing on the balcony of a neighbour's house celebrating.
    "We suddenly saw a bright light appear in the sky, then another one joined it.
    "They both started darting about really fast. They weren't flying around like normal planes, or helicopters.
    "Everyone who saw them, and there were about 15 of us, were amazed. I didn't see any green men flying them, but I am sure they were UFOs.
    Grandmother Mary Booth, 57, says she saw what she believes was a UFO in Bristol on New Year's Eve.
    Mary was standing in her front garden with three other people when they noticed a bright orange, ball shaped object in the sky.
    She said: "We live near Bristol airport so I often see planes and helicopters in the sky and this was totally different to them.
    "It was standing still in the sky then it moved off above our roof and then took off upwards, getting smaller and smaller.
    "I have never believed in UFOs before but after seeing that I think there might be something in them.
    "There was no way this was an airplane or something like that. It was really weird and we all saw it."
