(UK) South Harrow UFO Photographed - Flickr (2009)

The following caught my eye recently as it’s not the usual ‘run of the mill’ photograph of a UFO, it was originally posted to Flickr then subsequently picked up by the Harrow Observer who added further details to the report on the 6th April (2009).

UFO spotted in South Harrow

A mysterious light in the skies above South Harrow has been captured on film by an amateur photographer. The unidentified flying object appeared through the clouds at about 7.45pm on March 31 and was snapped by computer network engineer Ahmad Zaigham.

Mr Zaigham posted the picture on website Flickr where he said that he had spotted the alien ship out his window.


(Original Image)

He said: "The light coming from this thing is something I have never seen the like. I don't think any aircraft has a light like this…..And moments after this shot the object seemed to quickly fade in light and travel above at high speed. I did not hear any loud sound but I did hear a whistle kind of sound. I am still shocked."

Mr Zaigham said he may pass the picture on to Nasa.

Mr Zaigham posted the following account to his Flickr account under the pseudonym, "SHUTTER-MOORGH".

“This Alien ship I spotted outside my window on the 31st march 2009 at 7:45:57 pm. The light coming from this thing is something I have never seen the like. I don’t think any aircraft has a light like this. And moments after this shot the object seemed to quickly fade in light and travel above at high speed. I did not hear any loud sound but I did hear a whistle kind of sound. I am still shocked.”

Zaigham also states that: “Yes this is the only picture i got. The ship was flying fast above and on the right side around 20 degree angle.”



However after checking the Flickr account in question it struck me as a little suspicious that Mr Zaigham is a member of a multitude of UFO orientated Flickr groups, has a sound photographic knowledge and high-end photography equipment and yet only managed one image of the object, which when coupled with the fact that (as quoted above) the first line of the description states somewhat unequivocally that Mr Zaigham believes the object is indeed an, “Alien ship”.

I am admittedly occasionally (!) overly cynical concerning such matters but personally I would attach a great deal more credence to the photograph if the image wasn’t (apparently) cropped and of course if access to the original was granted so that the exposure time (amongst other things) could be verified.....

My first guess would be that that is not a cloudy sky, but rather some kind of cloth with a hole (the "UFO"). That is, ironically, the UFO is actually the bright daylight sky.

Other possibilites include a simple reflection in a glass, though the rays of light are somewhat atypical.

Also, it could be an "alien ship" :)

Hi Kentaro & thanks for talking the time to comment, your erudite reasoning is always welcome here!!

It’s already starting to propagate across the internet, another myth in the making…..

While I agree that the image could very possibly be staged I still can’t shake my initial hunch that the exposure time was longer than usual and we could just be looking at searchlights with the source obscured.

Also, it could be an "alien ship" :)

Indeed it could!! ;)

Again, thanks for the comment,
Cheers.
