I thought this story was interesting but we need more information.


A photo journalist in the town of Venado Santa Fe Eye he took a picture of a unidentified flying object (UFO) and then, when sent to NASA for evaluation, the agency confirmed that the image was authentic, according to the agency published Télam .

It is the journalist and photographer Gaston Garnier, 26, who last December 10 was in the amphitheater of the Piazza Italia Venado Tuerto, awaiting the start of a folk rock.

To clarify the wait, Garnier decided to try his camera and took about five pictures to the moon appearing larger and brighter on the pines in front of the Plaza.

"In December there was an eclipse and was testing how far I would get the moon in my camera, I made five pictures and I was hoping to start a rock. Until that moment I saw nothing strange in the pictures," he told the reporter and photographer working as a correspondent for the newspaper Southern Cross, the Rosary.

Garnier said that when he got home, got the pictures "and among the five who had captured with my camera featured a rare object, a kind of Greek And with bright balls hooked at their tips and perspective."


So far this story is the same as many we have heard before but the man claims when the pictures were sent to NASA for analysis the results were encouraging.


He explained that the NASA report says that "after digital analysis, we come to the conclusion that we have a genuine photo of a UFO (UFO) that, compared with several samples of our database, displays a 80.75 percent of similarity to one photographed on 13 December in Abrantes, Portugal. "

Personally i think the NASA report needs to be made public before any judgement is made.

It might be an idea to embed the image posted on UFODigest.

The image itself looks very, very odd. It almost looks like a worm-shaped object which has been screwed up and twisted around (if that makes sense). I would err on the side of caution about the NASA claim as they haven't released any official statement so for all we know this person who took the image could be a hoaxer. However, the image is really impressive, I don't think I've seen anything like it before - its just a shame we couldn't have seen a video of it. Could there be a possibility that if the images are authentic NASA may cover this up and pass it onto the relevant military and secret services?

Thanks for posting.

Great thread, But does NASA mean UFO as in 'unidentified flying object'.....im not sure how they word things there. Yes they cant identify it so to them its a UFO...

If you get my meaning lol.
Hope it is one though

Where is the original straight from the camera image and where is that NASA report? This is just the kind of stuff that makes my skin crawl. Calls himself photo journalist and does exactly the opposite of what a real photo journalist would do

Anyone can say that they have a NASA report about anything, what he should do is publish it.

And there's something strange about that article (besides the bad translation): why does it say that the photos were taking in December 10, but latter they say that they were taken at the same time a UFO looking like this one was seen in Portugal in December 13?

If there was a three days gap they were not taken at the same time.

In this site (in Spanish) an e-mail they show the inconsistencies with this case, the photo from the supposed report and an e-mail (in English) to the NASA person that supposedly signed the report and his answer.

I'm having a hard time believing this one.
According to the article, The Goddard Space Flight Center has a department which will authenticate a UFO picture, and send you back a written report on it.
I really dont think thats true.

Edit - ah yes, just read the site linked to by ArMaP, and yes, this one goes in the HOAX bin.

Mmmmm .....Nic Nak's

The picture in the OP is so nondescript it could be anything , I don't see how anybody could say it's an authentic picture of anything .

Right, here's what's shown on the site:



Mr. Benitez:

Thank you for letting me know about this. That letter is a fraud. I didn’t write it (I don’t speak Spanish) and I’ve never seen that photograph. NASA does not validate or analyze UFO claims.

Thanks again,

Thanks for clearing that up.

Imagine you are standing at the vehicle's 1 o'clock low, looking up at it. I see two warp nacelles on either side, with the cockpit in the center as the vehicle is banking to the right. It looks a lot like Tom Paris's Runabout from Star Trek: Voyager.

Yeah, I was gonna say...

NASA doesn't analyze or examine UFO claims from anyone, for any reason. It would be a massive waste of time and resources.

It was on the news here in Argentina, and the day after it was confirmed that NASA didn't send the letter, it was a prank played on the photographer, but the guy wasn't aware of it.

That's very believable. I've encountered far more gullibility [and occasional cruel pranks from associates to victimize the enthusiastic UFO fan] then actual deliberate hoaxing.

Thanks again, 'Cassandra'. Argentine/Brazilian UFOs have been some of my favorites since I discovered that many of the most spectacular were accidentally created by Russian space rockets! See here:

August 1992, OMNI magazine -- Russian UFO Panics Moscow, Flies to South America -- Jim describes mass UFO sightings on June 14, 1980, in the USSR and then Argentina, only an hour apart, that he investigated and concluded were caused by a rocket launching from northern Russia that later passed over South America. Many pilots reported weird in-flight encounters. Still reported as 'true UFOs' on the Internet:
www.jamesoberg.com...

More details on discovering this class of bogus-OVNIs:
Giant UFO Over Two Continents
www.debunker.com...

Jim describes a report from March 2-3, 1978, from 18-year-old Brazilian Jose Inacio Alvaro, who witnessed a ball-shaped UFO crossing the sky and later responded to telepathic messages to meet a female alien in a field for interplanetary intercourse. Hypnotic regression by UFO investigators confirmed the story. Jim suggests the UFO was a sunlit fuel dump from the booster rocket carrying the Molniya 1-39 into space, which was passing over Brazil at that time. But it's still a classic "true UFO" on the internet.

I heard that the guy sent the photo to the real NASA now, I don't know how that's going to work out for him.

The picture may be authentic in terms of something being there and not photoshopped but what it is and where this picture was taken is another story. People have taken pictures of reflections of light fixtures and called them UFOs. The object doesn't look like a space craft, it looks organic
