Bodrum is a port city and a district on the southwestern coast of Turkey. Turkish research organization Sirius UFO say this area has been a UFO hotspot this month and have posted a video and several UFO pictures captured in the area. They say the local press has been tipping them off to the sightings.

The following image was captured by Bar Esen and Peak Uluoluk on July 12, also in the town of Konacik in the district of Bodrum.


Sirius UFO acknowledge that many UFO pictures are due to “Venus in images of objects, china, lanterns, bird, blemishes, bubbles, light reflection, atmospheric phenomena can be explained as natural phenomena or illusions.”

However, they argue that many of the objects being reported defy conventional explanations. They say that the images are still under investigations.
