Is It Or Isn't It?

'Flying saucer' Pictures Stun UFO Watchers

By Mark Mcgivern

Remarkable pictures of what seems to be a flying saucer hovering over houses have sent UFO watchers wild.

An amateur photographer captured the images when he was trying out his new hi-tech digital camera at night.

They show what some experts are convinced is a UFO hovering above Plymouth. A photographic expert has said the pictures appear to be genuine and not faked in any way.

The pictures were taken by a Devonport Dockyard worker who wishes to remain anonymous. The Royal Navy has already asked to study the snaps.

Plymouth 'UFO-logist' Bob Boyd has called the snaps among the best five pictures of a UFO he has seen in25years of spotting the phenomena.

Boyd, chairman of the Plymouth UFO Research Group, said: 'There's no doubt in my mind it's the real thing.'

The photographer was put in touch with the UFO Research Group.

Boyd said: 'He was just experimenting with his new camera and was amazed when he looked at the photographs an hour later.

'He was a total sceptic before this but he's now a firm believer. He was really shocked by what happened.'

The photographs were taken on January 28, just before 6pm, at St Budeaux Square in the Devon city.

Daily Record Picture Editor Stuart Nicol was more sceptical. He said: 'It could be a number of things.

'What concerns me most is that the images of the UFO are sharp but there is a degree of movement in the landscape.'

Webmaster note: the picture, of which only a cropped and probably enlarged portion has been circulated, may be only a reflection of some sort. It is not even made clear whether the witness saw or did not saw something with the naked eyes, which does not seem to be the case.
