|UFO report received by BEAMS 04/04/2016|
|City||Antrim, Northern Ireland.|
|Location||Dunluce Castle, Giants Causeway - looking out to sea.|
|Message||I was on holiday visiting Dunluce castle and I was practising
the panoramic photo setting on my phone; later when I'd returned home I
was looking back at photos and zoomed in only to spot a unusual white
object in the sky.|
I don't know what it is but would appreciate your thoughts.

At first glance some might jump to
that this is merely some kind of balloon - but just consider, to have
been visible at all from such a distance, we are talking about
something that is of considerable size.
What other possibilities are we
left with? a kiteboarding/windsurfing kite is a MAJOR contender, but
the snag is that, even under intense magnification we can't see any
ropes/lines... and the object doesn't have the usual characteristics of
a windsurfing kite that we might expect - namely no bright, 'fun'
colours; generally, this structure doesn't look quite the same as one
might expect for such an item of professional water sports equipment.
So, all-in-all, this object still qualifies as a UFO in our opinion.
