UFO photographs are often unclear and fuzzy, leaving experts and enthusiasts consistently disappointed. Photos or videos that do make it to the internet are often too grainy or too dark for anyone to make out what they show, and for this very reason claims about UFO sightings can’t be fully authenticated.
Recently, however, the world’s ‘clearest UFO photo’ ever has been revealed to the world. It was taken approximately 30 years ago by two hikers in the Scottish Highlands.
The photograph was titled ‘Calvine Photograph’ and the negatives were handed over to Scotland’s Daily Record newspaper. They in turn sent it to the Ministry of Defence (MoD). and now nobody knows where they are.
According to reports, the photograph was captured on 4th August 1990, around 35 miles northwest of Perth, close to Calvine. The hikers who spotted the flying object have remained unknown to this day.
The image shows a huge diamond-shaped object hovering in the sky, with a smaller plane flying behind it.
According to eyewitness accounts, the UFO hovered in the air for a duration of ten minutes before shooting upwards and disappearing. It was estimated to bearound 100 feet in length.
Academic journalist Dr. David Clarke has now uncovered the photo after decades of research, finding a copy in the possession of former RAF press officer Craig Lindsay. Dr Clarke has assured the public that the image will be included in Sheffield Hallam University’s archives.
He said that after years of intensive investigations, it felt good that the image is finally being shown to the public.
But this isn’t the only UFO photo that has been uncovered this year. A photo taken 50 years ago by map maker Sergio Loaiza, who was flying 10,000 feet above the jungles of Costa Rica with a came, was revealed in May.
During his map survey expedition, he snapped hundreds of black and white photos of Lake Cote and the surrounding rainforests, from an altitude of 3,000 meters. The snaps were all developed, and on the left side of a photo, he spotted an odd detail. But the image wasn’t clear in the copy developed by Sergio, and the UFO was only spotted after the image was enhanced more recently.
