    Army Major captures 'UFO' in Kerala

    [​IMG]

    An Army officer has reportedly captured a UFO (unidentified flying object) on his cell phone at Kannur, Kerala.


    NOTE: When the news of the UFO was brought to the notice of Professor Jayant Murthy, of Indian Institute of Astrophysics in Bangalore, he out-rightly rejected such claims.

    Divya Sebastian, wife of Major Sebastian Zachariah, an Army officer now on an international assignment, said that her husband has indeed captured the image while on an outing on a beach in Kannur.

    “My husband had a new mobile (HTC-1) and he was checking the features by clicking photos randomly. It was around 4.30-5 pm and suddenly he screamed saying that he got a UFO image. We couldn’t believe it first and thought he was playing a prank,” Divya who hails from Kannur told Express over phone.

    She said Major Sebastian did not see the UFO with his naked eye. “We checked every frame carefully and only one had a flying saucer on it. We looked in the sky to spot something unusual. We came back home and did a thorough search on the internet and even scanned the NASA website,” said Divya.

    Out of curiosity and to rule out any technical snag, the customer service centre of the mobile phone firm was contacted to know if an already-stored image got merged with the photo.

    “We were told that no UFO images were stored on the mobile library and it is then we were forced to believe that we might have captured something special. We have seen UFOs in movies, but well this one has literally floored us,” she said.Divya said that out of absolute curiosity and surprise they chose to hand over the photo to the media.“We do not want to get into any publicity nor want to debate over whether UFOs exist or not. We are just sharing what we saw. My husband is a serving officer and he can’t interact with the media, either,” she added.

    When the news of the UFO was brought to the notice of Professor Jayant Murthy, of Indian Institute of Astrophysics in Bangalore, he out-rightly rejected such claims.

    “Due to reflections of some optics there could have been illusions. People sometimes experience camera illusions and they are not UFOs. These are nothing real,” he said.

    Looks good Photoshop to me....Is this part of HTC One's advertisement campaign ?? Nokia should think about it with its mighty Lumia 1020 :yey:

    Is this grey-scale image the one talked about in the article? Seems fake.

    And the link to the source isn't working either.
