Hi Don,

I think you and I may be looking at different lights in the sky
over the electrical power plant.

The five "UFOs" in the sky that I pointed out in my longer
unsnipped original e-mail are indeed lens flares since they can
be matched to certain "hot" light sources on the power plant
itself. Since these five UFOs are directly opposite these the
hot lights with respect to the center of the picture (and the
optical axis of the camera lens) and also equal distances from
that center (and also have the identical colour or spectral
characteristics of the light sources on the power plant), we can
only conclude that the UFOs are lens flares.

Since there are other very hot light sources in that night-time
picture taken in 2005, I predict that there will be more "UFOs"
in the sky behind those (mischievously?) placed photo inserts on
top of that picture.

Also, I suspect that this picture of UFOs in the sky over the
the electrical power plant is another example of BLURFOs (UFOs
that were not seen at the time the picture was taken but noticed
by the one who took the picture or others sometime afterwards).
The fact that Ana Luisa Cid published this two year old single
picture with many UFOs now supports my suspicion, especially
since the object of attention in the picture seems to the power
plant and not the UFOs in the sky. If these were real objects
rather than optical artefacts taken with a typical camera, then
the larger luminous domed UFO would certainly have been noticed
since it would have had a comparable apparent size to the Full
Moon and the photographer would certainly have taken more
pictures of this unexpected visitation. Where are those other
pictures? Maybe the photographer ran out of film or the battery
in his/her digital camera died.

Of course, we may never will know for sure or convince ourselves
as to who of us is right unless we can examine this actual UFO
picture, without those photo inserts. Since it's unlikely this
will happen, this photo will end up being accepted by believers
as depicting real UFOs just like that picture of UFOs over the
U.S. Capitol taken in 1952 which are simply lens flares or
reflections of hot light sources too.

UFOs are real objects but much of our photographic evidence to
date, especially all those pictures with small and often out-of-
 focus UFOs collected over the past decade or so, are not
convincing at all!

Ufologists have noted that highly structured and solid looking
objects were often seen in the 1940s and 1950s but are no longer
being reported. Maybe the UFO era has end long ago and those
unusual lights we now see in the sky or smudges we capture with
our video and digital cameras maybe a totally different and
possibly less exciting phenomenon that is readily and reasonably
explained in prosaic terms such as lens flares.

Check out 'The Best UFO Pictures Ever Taken' pages in the
website below to see what I mean.


Maybe there once was an ET invasion or visitation of Earth and
they have all since returned home. Some of us apparently cannot
cope with their absence. Looking up to the sky and grasping at
anything that gives them hope that they will again return, we
may be witnessing the beginings of a new or substitute religion.
