Orlando UFO photo draws widespread attention

Film analysis experts of the UFO Collective Google Group began discussing photos Thursday related to a recently reported Orlando UFO sighting. The discussion participants, which included Bruce Maccabee and Terry Groff, eventually made comparisons between the photos taken in Orlando with photos containing unusual images recently obtained from Brazil, leading respected researcher Kentaro Mori to observe, "This is getting more and more bizarre."

A UFO sighting report was recently submitted to the Mutual UFO Network describing circumstances the morning of Jan. 24.

"While staying at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort in Orlando," the report stated, "I stepped onto the back porch to make a panoramic photo of the sunrise. While taking a series of 3 photos I noticed a curving brighter line in the clouds. I assumed it was part of a contrail and paid no further attention until it came time to process the 3 photos into a panorama a day or two later."

It was then that the photographer apparently suspected the assumed contrail might actually have been a disk shaped object.

The photographer added in the MUFON report, "By laying a grid over the image I was able to determine that the diameter of the disc was covering approximately 2 degrees. Guesstimating that the object might be as much as 5-10 miles away I concluded that the size of the disc might be about 850-1700 feet."

UFO Collective participants, including Mori, were earlier this week discussing a Brazilian case in which photos of unusual aerial phenomena were reportedly taken Jan. 27. Some discussion participants suspected the photos contained images of lenticular clouds - as opposed to artificial flying objects of some kind - but nonetheless found the photos, if genuine, to contain extremely unusual cloud formations.

When the Orlando case was introduced to the group for consideration, comparisons were rather naturally made between the images from Brazil and those from Orlando due to certain similarities. While it is very unlikely the photos might contain literally the same object, discussion members were admittedly intrigued.

"Well," Martin Shough noted, "it's certainly a coincidence..."
