Researchers release ‘most convincing UFO photo’

(ORDO NEWS) — A clear, high-resolution photo taken from a light aircraft flying over the jungles of Costa Rica shows a metal disk.

The high-resolution photograph has been called “the most convincing UFO photograph ever”. The picture was published only 50 years after this event.

Aerial photography operator Sergio Loayza used a special mapping camera while flying over Costa Rica. The main task was to survey the land before the construction of a hydroelectric power plant near the Arenal volcano in the northern highlands of the South American country.

As the plane flew over Lake Kot at an altitude of about 3 kilometers, Loaiza took several high-quality images of the lake and the surrounding rainforest at 20-second intervals.

In one frame, at the 8:25 am mark, you can see a shiny metal disc that ufologists believe looks like a classic “flying saucer”. The unidentified object appeared to have flown between Loaiza’s Aero Commander F680 twin-engine aircraft and the ground.

The object is visible only in frame number 300 of the series of photographs, and it is not in the previous frame of the film, nor in the one that was taken immediately after.

No one, neither the pilot nor his three crew members, noticed anything during the flight.

Depending on the exact height of the object, it is believed to have been between 40 and 70 meters across.

Despite careful analysis by UFO skeptics, Loaiza’s depiction has never been explained. Whether this is an alien spacecraft or a trick of the light remains open to debate.

Various theories have been put forward, saying that it could be a reflection from the lake or even the lid of the teapot when they tried to create a “fake” version of the image, but this was not confirmed.

“This is one of the most compelling scientific evidence that UFOs are real,” says Oscar Sierra, a UFO researcher from Costa Rica.

UAP Media said in a statement that researchers Richard Haynes and Jacques Vallee, who released the original photo, were asked by Loaiza’s (National Geographical Institute of Costa Rica) employers not to talk about the incident.
