Sorry but you can clearly see the rope airbrushed out above it. Looks like a part of the oil rig getting loaded on board.

Its funny, i came here to ATS a few years ago to find some possible proof of life outside of this planet. all i have found so far is lights at night and obvious hoaxers. I am still hopeful but damn if people arent making it hard.

As someone who does a lot of photo manipulations I'm 80% these are fake. For one the colours of the UFO do not fit in with the rest of the scene. Look the the greys in both the foreground and background, in the first image the shadows of the UFO have a warmer tint.
Also more importantly the depth of field, to many of the shots of the UFO are in sharp focus while both the foreground and background have more noise. This wouldnt happen on the type of camera which is obviously a poor point and shoot camera. The UFO itself looks like some kind of lamp also not to mention the light source seems off.edit on 1-6-2011 by OwenGP185 because: (no reason given)

HOAX - These photos released on June 2010 were just a joke by two employees of
the ABK-A oil platform in Campeche, Mexico. They used an old disarmed burner tied
with threads in a very rudimentary way. The photos resulted a bad hoax and were
discarded immediately but recently surfaced again thanks to some moron that made
copies and sent massive emails under fancy titles deceiving people.
Besides the clear airbrush to the thread that sustains the burner or brooder underneath
you can see how they tied the threads precisely to sustain the fake saucer UFO.
They used something like this chicken brooder. Can we move this thread to the Hoax
