Colorado witness sees UFO only in camera viewfinder

A Colorado witness at Fairplay reported seeing a Saturn-like UFO on her camera screen that could not be seen with the naked eye, according to testimony in Case 62246 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The event occurred about 1:30 p.m. on December 14, 2014, as the reporting witness and his fiancé were driving along Highway 285.

“The surrounding area was very beautiful, so she decided take some pictures,” the reporting witness stated. “She noticed an object on the screen and she started to try to find it without using the phone and was asking if I could see anything. She realized she could only see it through the camera screen on the phone.”

The woman then snapped two photos very quickly: Image 1 and Image 2.

“Neither of us ever did see anything with our naked eyes, but in the photos it appears as if the object was traveling very fast. We were going about 65 mph and the pictures were taken only a few seconds apart, yet the object appears to have moved drastically. We cannot identify this and are hoping someone else can.”

  1. You hear stories like this a lot in this field. Makes me wonder that maybe a big reason Disclosure is not happening is that they will have to tell us the truth that these things are all around us we just can’t see them with our naked eye. Certainly nobody would freak out over that…

  2. Clearly a water droplet on the windscreen, you can see the distinctive reflections. This explains why it could only be seen on viewfinder which was focusing on it whereas the human eye was more focused on the distance.

  3. It looks like it’s something on their windshield (probably a ding or a divot in the glass, which explains how it catches the light like that) . If you study the location of the “object” in relation to the dash features reflected in the windshield, the “objects” location is constant.

  4. This is a glitch in the windshield! The reason the object appears to have moved is because the second photo is taken at a higher level in the car making the object look as though it has dropped. Check the space between the truck and the bottom of the photo; the second photo has less space from truck to bottom of the photo!

  5. Not a droplet on windshield. I put pics through a graphic program and turned down the number of colors to 4 and moved that number up down and you can clearly see a black triangle object in the center of the object with the glare on it which seems to be something around or coming from the black triangle in both images. But just as or more interesting is the beam that is coming down from top left to bottom right and in that beam you can see a distinct cigar shaped object. The beam seems to form a type of cloud or moisture along it and is breaking up nearing the ground. Looks like the black triangle craft is searching the actions of the beam and cigar shaped craft.

  6. Actaully i am the one who took the picture i can tell you there was no glitch. No stratch. No cracks on our brand new truck. It was a second after i took the picture and obviously the roads arnt straight. Common sence but believe as you wish. I know what we saw.
