I know.

If you can't see this for what it is within seconds then how will you cope with something that really is hard to identify!

It's a seagull that is a lot closer to the camera then the background, it's called perspective.


I'm actually more interested in the shape. Now my first inclination was to agree that it is, in fact, a seagull. I have seen many in my life and would not be surprised to find that to be true..

I'm not claiming it is anything but, and yes the perspective is a bit off...

But if you look at the lettering on the ship there just isn't enough blur, so it's not a camera defect smudging a moving object(i.e. bird) I've just never seen a gull look like that mid flight. Ever.

I'm very welcoming to being wrong, and it most likely is a seagull. It is a rather odd shape though...

Its not a bird and it has that Billy Meir aura around it and its the best
camouflage yet.

Space ship ... well.

UFO pictures don't pay.

There are hundreds on the net.

It is a seagull... in a flying saucer. How do they pilot
with those wings? Although it maybe a gull from 'Finding
Nemo'.

Where's our good friend, internos? Shouldn't you have superimposed the outline of a bird already?

Similar UFO, different setting?

Notice the reflection on the wings?

Hehe. Good post!

It is an optical illusion. If you first see it as something facing to the right, then it looks like an aircraft with two "prongs" in front (sort of like the "Millenium Falcon") and a blackish "canopy" area in the middle.

If you see it as something facing to the left, you can see it is a bird, once you make out the beak, head, and even the eye.

The problem with the picture is its lack of resolution and clarity, which creates the illusion. With more resolution and clarity, the beak, head, and eye would be the first thing everyone would notice, and this picture would have never had its 15 minutes of fame.

There is no reason to question the intelligence of someone who doesn't first see it as a bird. It has nothing to do with intelligence. It is a matter of individual perspective, which is why illusions work in the first place.

Has anyone looked at the new pictures of the object that I found?

Apparently not. It seems people are ignoring a few things about this image. I think Internos would probably help out alot. But having seen so many good fakes, or birds mistaken for UFOs, I just can say that it is a seagull. Especially since we have the EXACT SAME OBJECT in different settings, as you posted.

I found it odd that someone would claim it to be a seagull and not look at the rest of the photos the OP linked to. There are more. This thing is over some sort of shipyard out in the distance, so if it is a seagull, it would be very apparent if it were close to the camera. So it is either the smallest seagull known to man, or it is a much larger object further away.

Is your uncle really David Bellamy?

I really hope you are being honest! DB is part of the DNA of my generation! He was as much a figure in our childhood as our teachers. David Bellamy (your uncle) is absolutely wonderful and extremely loved by my generation.

It's such a shame that today's kids miss out on such a character and such a good teacher.





If you are being honest, please tell David, your uncle that he was and is very well loved by the 30+ year olds in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales!

I think it's safe to say that this can be debunked as a Seagull and it's sure as anything not worth 30k.
