flying saucers in California(left) and Peru(right).
The large majority of UFO reports fall into two
categories: Bright lights or flying discs. The photographs on
this page are all of alleged UFOs. They were photographed around
the world in California (North America), Peru (South America),
Yugoslavia and Switzerland (Europe). Photos of saucers have also
come from parts of Asia as well.
Why so many reports of UFOs share this characteristic
is unknown, but it was not always so. During a surge of UFO reports
from the mid-west in the late 1800's and early 1900's the ships
were described as oblong or dirigible shaped. Skeptics claim the
change in the appearance of UFOs, as our own technology has changed,
suggests witness's observations may be greatly colored by what
they have seen and what they expect to see. An indistinguishable
shape in the sky may appear to be a disc if the observer thinks
it might be a disc.
While live witnesses may have trouble with perception,
cameras do not. It seems hard to explain these photos as anything
but elaborate hoaxes or a truly unexplained phenomenon.
