Not a bird or plane? It must be a UFO
By Al Jacinto, Correspondent

ZAMBOANGA CITY - An unidentified flying object was sighted hovering over a quiet village in Zamboanga City.

The object, which appeared metallic, was spotted in the remote village of Lumbangan, about 10 kilometers east of Zamboanga.

A witness claimed to have a photograph of the UFO hovering above a hill in the village. “I was taking pictures of the people digging for scrap and did not notice the flying object until I browsed the photographs from my laptop computer four days later.”

“I was aghast at the picture and could not believe it. Of the three frames of photographs taken in the same site, the flying object appeared only on the second frame. It was not on the first frame and gone on the third,” he said.

He said the object resembled a dark metallic disc with what appeared to be a dome on its top and it emitted neither sounds nor smoke. It was unknown if there were other witnesses, but he said some 70 people were in the garbage dump at the time the UFO hovered behind them.

“It was past 10 in the morning and I am sure I heard no sound of aircraft in the village. The UFO was behind just up there,” he said.

The witness reported the sighting to an international scientific research organization in the United States, the UFO Evidence, and sent a copy of the photograph.

The Wikipedia website defines a UFO as “any airborne object or optical phenomenon, detected visually or by radar, whose nature is not readily known. Interest in these objects stems from continued speculation that some of them may be the products of extraterrestrial intelligence.”

There have been numerous UFO sightings in the Philippines in the past. Filipinos reported seeing UFOs in 1979 in Cebu, Bohol and Negros. On April 19, 2000, a UFO was spotted near a beer brewery office in Manila. On June 28, 2002, a UFO was spotted hovering over a remote village in Polomolok town in South Cotabato.

Two sightings were again reported in Dumaguete City on December 15 and March 11 in the same year. On January 16, 2004, a disc-shaped flying object was seen over San Jose del Monte, Bulacan. Many other sightings have been reported since 1990.
