Argentina: A UFO Over Catamarca?

(DERF-EI) - A cell phone camera captured an object in the skies over Cuesta del Totoral, province of Catamarca.

Fidel Ruben Martinez was traveling in his car when he noticed a glow. He looked skyward and took out his cell phone camera to record an unusal object.

"When I expanded the object with the zoom I managed to see the outline of what we all know as a flying saucer," he told the El Ancasti newspaper from Catamarca.

The images were sent to the Tucumán Observatory. Experts issued a statement reporting that "what can be seen in the image corresponds to what the camera picked up, at the level of luminous information."

Specialists explained that "we must practically dismiss the possibility than an opaque solid body interposed itself between the Sun and the camera lens, as the luminous pattern seen in the photo is 100% compatible with reflective phenomena of light rays on the outer curvature of the camera lens."

"The dark spot, the light solar halo and the reflection line agree exactly with the center of the image. This concentricity is a chracteristic trait of optical effects," they added.
