Historian photographs UFO hovering over historic California barn that's better known for its ghosts
Daily UK Mail ^ | 14:39 EST, 24 May 2013 | Nina Golgowski

Posted on 05/25/2013 12:44:09 PM PDT by BenLurkin

A metallic flying saucer appearing no different from any Sci-Fi movie was allegedly photographed hovering over a historic Southern California barn that’s already famously known for its spooks.

Santee Historical Society researcher Ellen Henry says she was outside taking pictures of the Edgemoor Barn near San Diego when she unknowingly caught the perfectly clear cigar-shaped object hovering in the sky.

'I was constantly looking up and around the area, including the sky's background, so I can get it just right, and not at any time did I see anything in the sky, or heard a sound of an aircraft,' she later wrote with her picture.

Is that also the farm that has pics of a Chupacabra milking the cows and caught Big Foot in a steel trap?

Dem aliens (pun intended) must have used a transporter device on Obama's original paper LFBC!! GOP paid them to, of course. Poor Obama; he's always the victim.

Assuming good faith on the part of those who see and photograph strange things in the sky I love their reasoning:

"I cannot identify what I see; therefore, what I see must be a space craft piloted by a person from another world!" Arghhh!

I finally got to see one this last February. For about a week my family and other people from the area saw them each evening. There are strange things in the skies but as to them being aliens that has yet to be proven. It is much more likely that they are some experimental military craft. Still if they are then it means we have technologies that the general public aren’t aware of yet and that is pretty exciting.

I saw a UFO and the pilot was a Chupicabra. The co-pilot was a Big Foot. Before going back into space, they stopped for some chocolate and I gave them five pounds of Ex-Lax. It probably kicked in after they passed the moon.

The lady said she saw nothing while taking the photograph, which leads me to suspect it is just a bug flying in front of the lens. I’ve seen similar photos of “UFOs” that turn out to have more mundane answers.

One poster there asked why these pics are always out of focus. One answer might be that their powerplants ionize the surrounding air - I have seen pics of an aerial device taken by a high-quality rocket tracking camera that was just as fuzzy. On the other hand, it just may the “UFO” was too close to the lens.

“They” may be here, but I doubt that this is one of ‘em.

As I and my eyes age, things that are not so far away are all turning into flying saucers and aliens...on foggy nights there are a lot of bright-eyed monsters prowling the streets.

A couple of things about this story.
1) Since the days of Bill Clinton (at least) the Brit press has had better reporting than ours.

2) In some circles that first sentence could be considered racist.

Good point. At what speed does the bug/UFO phenomena show up? And what speed does it not? (Question is from a "point-and-shoot" guy.)

I think that’s a good picture of an unknown object in the sky. Who knows what it is, but it sure isn’t any kind of aircraft we’re familiar with.

Looks vaguely like one of those prototype flying wing lighter than air craft, at a distance, rear three quarter view.

No, that’s down the block. This is the farm where the happy California Cows do their interviews.

I agree, especially after checking out a company called Skunkworks that a friend of mine told me about.

I was thinking more along the lines of shutter speed and lack of fuzzing the image out. If the thing is moving extremely fast, a shutter speed of normal use for landscape scenes would not even catch a discernable object. Likewise, the focal distance comes into play.

I don't think it was moving. I suspect that at the end of the rope that's holding it stationary one will find either a furniture store holding a sale or a used car lot.......

Actually , this pic looks like the Millenium Falcon, edge-on, and since Wookiees and Big Foot look a lot alike, it leads to the speculation of Big Foot being a Wookiee long ago marooned on this planet. Maybe these are search parties? Could happen.

Well, I didn't say it was. I just said that it's an 'object', which appears to be flying. The only man made objects I know of that fly, are aircraft. It doesn't look like any that I'm familiar with.

I've seen a few photos and videos of flying objects that are very good, but even in this day, when nearly everyone walks around with a digital video recorder in their pocket, there are precious few videos that show these objects in close enough detail to remove all doubt about them.

In the late 70’s I was out on a first date with a man I had long adored. It went rather well and I was musing during the car ride home that this would be the first of many great nights.

Looking outside at the warm and beautiful night, a bright revolving light in the sky caught my eye. STOP THE CAR!!!!!!, I practically screamed. NOW! He looked confused, found a moment away from the traffic and pulled over. What's going on? Says he.

A UFO! There’ s a UFO...Flinging the door open I got out of the car and looked up.

And saw a blimp with a lit revolving sign advertising some game.....

Next time, when I find another date...I'll wear my glasses.

I was a registered MUFON field investigator. It looks like a frizbee thrown into the air and snapped at the moment it had a direction change. I guess that's a flying object, but it wouldn't be classified as an aircraft, in my book anyway.

I've seen pictures taken of lenticular clouds that look more like a flying saucer than that image in the photograph, but they aren't aricraft and wouldn't even be categorized as UFOs by MUFON.

Oh, I thought UFO might have taken the barn. If the barn was missing it would be more convincing story.

Santee is near the landing path for Miramar Marine base. Back when it was a Navel Air Station the would get UFO calls for the AWACS aircraft all the time. At night the lights on the plane would light up the bottom of the dome and look really strange while landing from near Santee.

The “video” at the link is just a stupid news report with precious little of the “UFO” and mostly a lot of other nonsense.

Of all the UFO stories I have seen over the years, this is one of the weakest.
