Eleven year old Jack Brody was playing outside of his Epping Forest, UK home on May 27 2012, when he spotted something strange in the sky. The quick thinking boy ran inside and grabbed a camera to take a picture of the silver object that he had spotted. When his father returned, he was excited to show him the image, but at first glance Jack’s father (Simon Brody) didnt see what his son was so excited about.
“I got back from a walk and Jack ran up to me and said ‘you will not believe what I got a picture of. He pointed at this thing that was so small that you could barely see it. It was up there glimmering in the sun. When we zoomed in and looked at the picture closer I said to my friend, who was visiting, ‘you have to come and see this.’ “ “We just could not work out what it was. It is a kind of silver circular thing. It is very odd.”
Ideas about what the boy photographed have ranged from weather balloons to drones. Of course there are plenty who say that he managed to get a genuine ufo on film. What do you think? (Photo of the Epping Forest UFO below.)
UFO Photo vanishes
It was said to be one of the best photos of a UFO, and a poster-size image of it hung on a wall of Britain’s Ministry of Defence. But then, at some point between 1991 to 1994, it vanished, gone, never to be seen again.
On the day in 1991 that Nick Pope interviewed for the position of chief of the Ministry of Defence’s UFO office, he could not help but notice the UFO image on the wall. “I went in for an informal interview, and anyone sitting in that office found their eyes drawn to that image,” Pope told The Huffington Post.
Other original pictures, negatives and the wall poster somehow vanished in the 1990s. Only a Ministry of Defence line drawing remains.
The photo was one of six taken by a pair of hikers who spotted a strange diamond-shaped object in the sky over Pitlochry, Scotland, on Aug. 4, 1990. It appeared to hover in the air near an Royal Air Force Harrier jet. Eyewitnesses reported seeing the unusual object above the ground for nearly 10 minutes before it zoomed away at high speed.
