This is a bit of a strange one, generally I would say that any UFO that wasn't observed at the time of capture MUST be subject to greater scrutiny than if the object was intentionally photographed. The reasons for this are as I'm sure most know is due to the increasing amount of Blurfos being touted as UFOs. These Blurfos nearly always turn out to be of earthly origins and are usually insects or birds caught mid-flight, and any attempts at proving this to the person who captured the image are inevitably never well received.
That's why this one is a little different, although I admit to being highly sceptical of the image actually showing what it appears to (i.e. a UFO) it certainly seems to be what you could term a, “Classic” saucer shape.
Apparently the witness took the photograph, “ Near his home in Portsmouth while driving home from work in thick fog .” The photograph appears to be of an empty car-park and apart from the UFO at the top then the image itself is wholly unremarkable, which begs the question what was the witness intending to photograph?
I'm not saying this in itself is evidence of anything and I'd be the first to admit this, but until a better image or further information is forthcoming I'm afraid any contesting of what the image actually portrays would prove to be a pointless endeavour…..

The image that's caught our attention It may look like just another car park on a foggy night, but an amateur photographer claims it also shows a UFO. A disc-shaped object appears to be hovering in the night sky near the top right of the picture, according to Hab Rahman, who captured the image. The 28-year-old took the photograph near his home in Portsmouth while driving home from work in thick fog. But he only spotted he mysterious apparition after transferring the image on to his computer. Mr Rahman said:
“I've never really believed in UFOs but this is a bit weird and freaky – I just cannot think what else it could be.”
UFO expert Hilary Porter, of the British Earth and Aerial Mysteries Society, last night confirmed it could be genuine. Can you see it? That little hovery thing in the sky - what more evidence do you need? She said: “ It would be very difficult to fake that photo and the UFO is at a tilt, which is the way they normally fly.” The Ministry of Defence said it could not check if there were any aircraft in the vicinity at the time.
