UFO snapped over Thames

I'm getting a bit exasperated by variations of the following paragraphs:

"What's very strange about this is the fact that we didn't actually see this object in the sky while I was taking the photos.

"I only discovered it once I loaded the photos onto my computer as I didn't even look at the photos until then."

(Via The Anomalist.)

I didn't even see this blog, until I clicked on it. exhale... I just discovered it thereafter. I find it eerily strange.

I would just note that, although its location in the sky (based on buildings in the background) seems to be considerably different in the two photos shown in the story, the orientation (tilt) of the "craft" itself relative to the camera seems identical in both. This fact argues (to me, anyway) that an identical UFO image was inserted in both.

"I'll just open my pictures in PhotoShop and whoops, something happened! And my goodness, now there seems to be a strange object in my pix. Gee, wonder what it could be...."

That a supposed "UFO expert" was quoted as "authenticating" the photos testifies (I think) to both the credulity of most UFO researchers (present comp[any always excepted, of course) and the credulity of the media who report these stories. It truly bothers me that the most cursory kind of inspection of so-called evidence, plus naive reporting of everything someone says about an "incident" like this as Gospel truth seems to be acceptable to many UFO researchers....

Keeping an open mind is the key to finding out the truth. (If there is one)Thing is, does it really matter anyway?

I question the veracity of any photograph printed by The Sun.

The UK version of The Enquirer.

Obvious fake.As are 90%, or more of all so-called ufo pics.

I suspect, as do several other commenters at the website the Sun article appears, that the ufo is nothing more than the reflection of an illuminated dashboard light from inside the car reflected on the inside of the car as a camera phone picture is taken of the outside and the reflected image is superimposed, as it were, at least appearance wise, into the outside scene by misperception of the nature of the "object" source, a light reflection of an illuminated dial.

all the sightings of this theme had been hidden by people who don't want to be exposed, the true criminals are those who have the information and denied the true.
