A photo taken by a German couple on Crete on Aug. 19 that seems to show an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) has been appearing all over the Internet, along with speculation as to whether it’s genuine.
The photo was taken at Balos Heach (Gramvousa) in Chania, when the tourists when trying to find a good spot to enjoy the day. They said they were on a road leading to one of the beaches when they saw a herd of goats and took photos of them.
After taking some photos they went to a cafeteria where they started looking at the shots and said they discovered something weird: a metal object hovering a few hundred meters from the sea. They said they hadn’t noticed anything strange or heard any noise when they were taking the shots.
Abovetopsecret.com reported the German woman recounted: “We could not believe what we saw, such a strange shape. We immediately started discussing possibilities to define what it could be, but had no idea. We didn’t notice anything was in the sky when I took the shot. We didn’t experience anything strange. It was a warm, sunny day, but there was a strong wind out of the Northeast. There was no sound.”
According to Defence Net the photograph does not appear to have been tampered with and appears authentic. However, there were no reported sightings or photgraphs of extra-terrestrial bodies or little green men although there are some questions as to whether the goats were real too or generated by software.
