UFO's or Angels over Dominican Republic?

Full Article Here

The article talks about a recent sighting over the Dominican Republic when flying from Puerto Plata to Santo Domingo.

"The objects are extremely luminous. If you enlarge them you will notice the lower set of lights are twin diamonds or squares, symmetrical, and unnatural. The upper set of lights are almost amorphous. Both lights seem to disturb the surrounding atmosphere."

I didn't post this in news as I don't see it as much news and more as speculation. However, it is a very recent sighting. I have always considered the possibility of UFO's being Angels or vice-versa, so it's an extremely interesting development to me.

im inclined to say there angels from the future.. because the camera shot says may 22 2008.... then again if it was recent... it is migrating season ... and angels have wings,... just my distorted opinion..

Very weird that the date is for May 22, 2008. That alone leaves questions of doubt! Could be anything, not that i don't believe in Space Ships but it is always hard to prove a valid photo or video.

Love and Light

Camera dates are off many times and some people don't know how to fix them, but nice catch. I didn't notice that!

Okay, aside from the time stamp, what else do we know about this? Movement, radar, anything new? I would guess reflection off of something, balloon perhaps?

Maybe aliens love the game of baseball, it is afterall America's pastime, played by Central Americans.

Here is a copy of the e-mail I just sent.

Hello Anthony,
How are you? My name is Jason, and I belong to a message board where we discuss many phenomena, including topics related to U.F.O.s. One of our members has started a discussion regarding your photos from the Dominican Republic. We would love it if you could join us, however if you cannot, I would personally love a few more details of your "sighting". (Such as Radar signature, speed and movement of object, flight path, etc.) The Web site is , and a direct link to the aforementioned discussion is UFO's or Angels over Dominican Republic? , page 1 .

Please contact me if you have any reservations about joining our board, as I know some of our Skeptics can be antagonistic. Most of us are helpful in identifying unknown anomalies, and above all, stick to our motto, "Deny Ignorance".

Thank you, JasonJNelson

Just so someone here did it, lol....

ref: Photo: Angels or UFO's over DR...

Greetings Jason: Thanks for the invite and interest. Regarding the time stamp, I posted in the article that the time stamp was off.. it was taken.. 4/22/08 not.. 5/22/08.

We did not visually see it at the time it was taken. They were noticed after I downloaded them. The pilot reported that Air Traffic Control did not notify him of any traffic on our flight path. Other photos from different positions show them both also.

We eliminated weather or ballons or natural objects like clouds or lightning, as the climate was full visibility, clear weather, and no reports from Air Traffic Control of any traffic in our flight path.

All explainations are welcome. I am very curious. I was contacted by a local person who saw the photos and she said she observed them from the ground on that evening and other evenings as well, moving, stationary, bright, and strange. She contacted a local astronomer, who was viewing it at the same time as well.

Thanks all. Tony Mele

Wow, holy hell you got him to join the site. That's awesome Jason. I'm really surprised, talk about bringing the investigation to the front lines.

Tony, do you have a high resolution photo that you could send any of us for further analysis?

Hey, thanks so much for the prompt attention to our requests! I am going to move these photos to Inernos , our resident, (and Italian) expert on such matters... Please don't disappear on us!

I have the photos. I need an e-mail address to forward it to. Internos is called....

Just give me a half hour, we will know how many flags and stars this really needs...

I have to state beforehand that the following is just my personal take on this photo, and that i could be completely WRONG.

Fig. 1

The object that has been pointed out is not an unique occurrence in the image: but unlike the other ones (except the one at the bottom-right)
is bright: this gets it interesting.

Fig. 2

There's a strong resembleance between the two objects enhanced here:
this is almost always a clue that drives us toward the reflection option


a gamma correction shows that the darker area IS affected by reflections, this is for sure. Now the problem is what could have created the reflection:
i didn't achieved a conclusion, especially because just a small part of the cockpit is visible;

but i want to share this one just as example

Fig. 4

Now this is just an example i share in order to show how many possible light sources we could find inside the cockpit: both A and B could be

well i can't say anything conclusive, but in my opinion we are looking at reflections created by some reflectant object inside the cockpit:
i cant say more due the lack of details.
The window is scratched and dirty and this doesn't help.
Tony Mele is 100% bona-fide and he also is a very reliable source in my opinion.

Just my 2 cents.

Thank you SO much, Internos, for taking the time to come by and analyze these photos. I see what you are talking about with these reflections. I can't wait to get photoshop, lol.

Thanks to "Tony" for stopping by. Anyone who is observant enough to at least bring attention to anomalies, is on the way to "Denying Ignorance".

Sorry this one doesn't seem to pan out, but hey, thats why we do this, right? Rather now than 5 pages into a thread, lol... see you all around...
