Best Photograph Of A UFO Taken in 50 Years Goes Viral

Great UFO Photo

A 50-year-old photograph is making its way around the internet after claims that it shows an actual unidentified flying object (UFO). Published by several media outlets and shared widely on Twitter, the black and white photo does show what appears to be a saucer-like object over Costa Rica.

The picture was allegedly taken by aerial photographer Sergio Loaiza in September 1971 as he flew over Costa Rica on a mission to survey land for the construction of a hydroelectric project, according to a report in Daily Star. Supporters say that this is the best photograph of a UFO (believed to be used by aliens) ever taken.

Reportedly the mission was planned near the Arenal Volcano in the South American country.

Loaiza said he took multiple high-resolution photos from an altitude of 10,000 feet of the lake below and the surrounding rainforest at 20-second intervals using his automated 100lb camera.

Later he discovered that in one of the frames, a shiny metallic disc appeared flying between Mr. Loaiza’s Aero Commander F680 aircraft and the ground. The photo was not very clear initially, but the claims about UFO started swirling around only when it was enhanced later.

That photo was the property of National Geographic Costa Rica, which commissioned the survey to study the potential impact of the hydroelectric project on surrounding land and water.

A Costa Rica resident, Esteban Carranza, who goes by the Twitter handle @UAP_CR released the photo. It was reported that Carranza has the “contact” copy of the original negative present in the National Archives of Costa Rica. He acquired it from his uncle who obtained the copy from the National Geographic Institute.

“I made this high res scan last year, met with people on the National Geographic Institute and tracked the technician in charge of the camera back in 1971. But there’s no reason for the image to sit on my desktop. Disclosure is a team effort and everyone should have this image,” Mr. Carranza tweeted out on Twitter.

“Over the years the image has been analyzed by various experts such as Costa Rican UFO researcher Ricardo Vílchez, Dr Richard Haines and Dr Jacques Vallée. They all concluded that the object in the photograph appeared real and was NOT the result of double exposure or a deliberate fabrication,” reported UAP Media on their website.

The object in the photo is estimated to be between 120-220 feet in diameter.
