JANUARY 1, 1997……LONG ISLAND SOUND NEW YORK
Hi, discovered your site browsing, love the numerous photos of UFOs on your site. I have personally seen 3 UFOs up close and unmistakable, and many far away sightings of objects that flew strangely but were too far away to get a good look.
I am going to submit a photo and cropped closeup here. I caught this object quite by accident on Jan. 1, 1997, in Rye, NY. Myself, my ex-wife, and her three children were visiting Rye Playground, right on Long Island Sound, not far from NYC. The park was closed for the winter season, but it was a very scenic place to walk around. It was a cold and breezy day as I remember.
Anyway, I took two photos of my step-kids sitting on a bench, just a few seconds apart. I did not notice anything at the time, but when I got the photos back from development, I noticed a silver hat shaped object above their heads. This object was not in the 2nd photo, which I have lost. I was so shocked by this object that I took my camera and negatives back to the camera store and had the owner inspect them. I remember he blew the photo up very large; I should have asked him for a print. The owner said there was no defect in either my camera or film, that I had actually captured some object. Over the years I got divorced and moved several times. I lost all the photos and negatives, except for this one photo with the unidentified object, which I put in a scrapbook and still own to this day.
I still have the original photo; it is much sharper than the images here. I got these images by taking photos of the original with my Iphone. The original is so sharp you can see the individual branches of the trees in the distance. I can’t remember what kind of camera I used, but it was not expensive.
On the original it looks like a silver disc object with a squarish dome on top. The object was at an angle, so the bottom side is in the shadow. It was around noon when I took these photos if I remember correctly, been a long time. This object is not a balloon, although it appears directly above one of the spires in the background. It was very breezy that day, you can see that in my step-kids hair being blown by the wind, so a balloon would have appeared further inland, as the wind was coming off the water.
Funny story, I told a co-worker who was a big UFO skeptic that I had caught a photo of a UFO by accident. He laughed at me, so I brought the original into work. I worked as a quality inspector in a lab with microscopes. You could see my friend’s expression change the moment he saw the photo. He took it over and examined it for a very long time under one of the microscopes. Finally, he brought it back and I asked him what he thought it was. He said, “It looks like a flying saucer to me.” LOL, I made a believer out of him.
You can post my photo and story, I posted this on NUFORC under 01/01/97. Sincerely, Wes Inman, Torrington Ct.
KENS NOTE: Sometimes we get a photo that the camera captured, and I feel this is a genuine UFO. Most of the time it is lens flair from the camera but this time it is not the case. Many times, our cameras see what our eyes cannot see.
