What is this?

Submitted by: Ron McKinnon

My wife took this photo as a group of pictures when she was house hunting in early December 2013. I got back home a few days ago and on viewing the pictures saw this blur on the one picture. Lens flash, reflecting sunlight, dirt on the lens?? You decide.

ufo or lens flare

  1. My opinion I think this is something to do with the lens, maybe a small water droplet or dust.

    The reason why I say this is because if you look closely at the picture you will see that the blur happens in front of the electrical fence, If something was really that close to the person taking the photo, he/she must have seen it with their naked eye, if that blur happened at the back of the electrical fence then I would have been a little more intrigued.

    But none the less this is something out of the ordinary that I haven’t seen before.

  2. Hi, here’s my two cents. If that is a water droplet then you should be able to reproduce the same effect. Important to remember the angle of the sun, the position you were standing and the direction you pointed. You probably need to experiment with the size of water droplets. Start with a pin, dip it in water and touch the lens. If the droplet rolls off then its to big.

    I’m fascinate by the four reflecting white lights. Does your flash work through the lens or did you shoot through the window?

  3. It looks like a chandelier inside the house that reflects on the window

  4. Its a UFO how come it has a silver body and 4 lights and nobody is explaining the tail….
