Netherlands UFO Sighting: Is Photo Real Or Fake?

The former FBI special agent who now hosts the SyFy Channel’s “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” said the photo of the Netherlands UFO sighting on May 25 appeared to be authentic. Yes, not fake but real photo of an UFO hovering the Muiderslot Castle in the Netherlands.

Corinne Federer and her mother visited the medieval castle, built in 1285 near Amsterdam in May. Federer, and an avid photographer, was shooting High Dynamic Range, or HDR, photos of the castle.

“In order to create HDR images, you take three or more exposures — this one happened to be five — and you shoot them all at the same time, because you then overlap the images and it gives you the full spectrum of light, which your camera can’t capture but your eyes can,” Federer said.

He wrote this short blog:

While reviewing the photos from the Muiderslot photography meetup, I came across something very interesting. Actually myself and everyone who has seen the images so far are dumbfounded. I’ve been shooting for quite a long time and have never encountered anything like this. Let me explain the images before you take a look and decide for yourself. I was shooting with a very wide angle lens Nikon 14-24 which can capture quite a large scene. It was shot with a Nikon D800 with is a 36mp camera so also very detailed when blown up. I was also shooting HDR which means I was taking multiple exposures at once. In this case it was 5 exposures. All five shots were taken within 1 second and the shutter speed on the images in question is 1/250 of a second. This means something would have to be moving very fast to be blurred in the scene. There were no aircraft present, no vapor trails as you can see in the subsequent images. It is definitely not a bird and I’ve mostly rule out any insect based on the apparent distance from my position in the image. Here’s where it gets more interesting. In the +1 shot, you can see it again…coming from the opposite direction!! It appears to have turned around. It seems to be traveling in the direction where the two fins are as you can see some sore of trail coming off from left to right. I’ve duplicated the two images where it appears and changed to greyscale and adjusted the basic settings and detail only using camera raw to get a better look. Anxious to hear your opinions about what this might be! You can click on the image to get to the gallery of photos. Please post comments on the actual Blog and not FB if you are finding this there so we can keep one conversation going (click on the comment link at top of post to enter comment if you don’t see a box to do so). I’ve kept the original untouched imaged in raw format on the card and copies in case this gets interesting. Enjoy!!
