Daytime UFO photo taken over Cape Town, South Africa
A daytime photograph of an alleged UFO was taken in Cape Town, South Africa on March 2, 2014.
The image was submitted to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) by the girlfriend of the man who snapped the picture while taking landscape photographs with a friend.
The girlfriend whose name was not given in the report, described the object as,“visibly dull, metallic looking and rounded.”
The two witnesses noticed the object at a distance and at a time that no conventional aircraft were observed in the area.
The photo was taken on a mountain near the Simonstown Naval Base, which the submitter claimed is home to alleged, “secret underground bunkers and has been somewhat of a hub of UFO reports increasing in recent years.”
The man who took the photograph is not convinced that the object was out of the ordinary, according his girlfriend.
Original (unedited) sighting report:
I am posting this report on behalf of my boyfriend who is not entirely convinced it is not a plane or a helicopter. I think it is an important Ufo sighting.
This photograph was taken in Cape Town, South Africa on Sat 2nd March 2014.
He was taking photos of the general scenery along with a friend and only noticed this shape on the left hand side of the image just above the cloud. He said there were definitely no planes or helicopters in the area.
This part of Cape Town is on the mountain near the Simonstown Naval Base which allegedly has secret underground bunkers and has been somewhat of a hub of Ufo reports increasing in recent years. It is quiet, semi-wild residential area which overlooks the sea.
The first photograph I have attached has a darker blue square superimposed over the object,which is visibly dull, metallic looking and rounded, in order to highlight its position in the image.
The second photo is the first shot, sharpened and zoomed.
No other manipulation has been done to the photographs.
It is a very clear image. Its shape is rounded,dome shaped at the top with a flatter bottom. No wings or tail fins or helicopter blades are visible. A rare, clear day time sighting.
I posted a report to UfoRSA, a South African Ufo forum, where I found that somebody else had posted an image of what looked like the identical 'craft' taken a week earlier in a nearby area.
