Ellen Henry noticed something strange about a photo she took of a historical building in Santee, Calif., on May 7 — an alleged UFO streaking across the sky.
Henry, a member of the Santee Historical Society (SHS) in San Diego, was reportedly taking pictures of the famous Edgemoor Barn, a 100-year-old building apparently known for “paranormal activity,” the Huffington Post notes.
“I was at the Edgemoor property, in the middle of the day, to take pics of the barn to update the SHS barn logo. I was constantly looking up and around the area, including the sky’s background, so I can get it just right, and not at anytime did I see anything in the sky or heard a sound of an aircraft,” Henry said.
It was after she had already taken the picture that she realized her camera had captured something unexpected.
“I noticed a ‘speck’ on my LCD screen after I took the shot to check for clarity, and only realized it wasn’t a speck when I downloaded it on my computer,” she explained.
Watch ABC 10 News’ report on the so-called Santee UFO:
The local news station reportedly contacted Gillespie Field and MCAS Miramar, but neither could explain the photo.
Henry is convinced that it was not a “commercial aircraft.” She seemed to indicate that it could have possibly been a drone but added, “I have not seen any drones that were round or oval, and lacking wings, rudders or propellers.”
“Another unusual thing happened: Henry reports that right after she snapped the UFO, her camera mysteriously stopped working,” HuffPost concludes.
Of course, it would be foolish not to consider the possibility that the photo has been Photoshopped or altered in some way.
Based on the available evidence, do you think this is a UFO sighting or a hoax?
