See fig. EXIF_UO.jpg
Shows the common symmetry of the UO itself. Each outer edge shows a flat area, angled on each side. Each side's angle holds symmetry with it's opposite edge.
The angle of reflection and highlight on the UO match sun location at the time of shooting. This is not only evidenced by the light and shadow of stationary objects, but in this case it's extremely helpful to have shadows cast by goats in the foreground. The object shows all the appropriate hallmarks of an object reflecting light off a domed surface in the correct places. It also exhibits the correct shadows and lowlight reflections for an object of high reflectivity.

For me, this is a very typical UFO "case" where the "evidence" itself is inconclusive and could literally be everything.
More interesting for me here is actually the psychology of people, the various attempts of explaining or "knowing" what it really is.
It is interesting to see people chiming in who state this is "undoubtedly the evidence" that we're visited by Aliens - but also interesting to see responses such as "Phage must be paid" (after him giving a pretty good, although skeptical response) - or the people who swear it's undoubtedly a shopping bag. Which I, by the way, cannot see even if i try hard.
Thanks for providing that "shopping bag picture" again just above this reply...the shopping bag graphics/explanation seems as constructed and forced as the graphics in the OP where they claim it's a symmetrical object. I can't see neither.edit on 1-10-2012 by flexy123 because: (no reason given)

Im pretty sure its a power kite, someone below the cliff is kite surfing, which i have done myself on Crete at one time,oddly enough.Its very popular there.
Some times when they lose wind they collapse and fall and can make circular shapes like that and they come in all colours and sizes.Metallic ones with gold and silver are quite common.
But giveen its close proximity to the shore and the fact that it looks to be very good kite surfing weather from the photo, perfect actualy,I would say theres a pretty high likelyhood it is.

The "photographer did not see the object while taking the picture" always raises a flag for me.
I feel the same way, and I'm not sure if it's an object really in the air.
There's a ray of sunlight shining in the window that crosses over the ring on her finger. Is it possible the object is light reflecting off the ring and side view mirror?
