Distant Unidentified flying object captured by chance near to the Winchester Science Centre, (formerly 'Intech'), Morn Hill, Telegraph Way, Winchester, Hampshire, UK - 05 04 2015
Weather conditions: Overcast
Statement: I happened to be at the science center in Winchester, Hampshire on April 05, 2015 and engaged in a daylight sky-watch for anything out of the ordinary; and as you can see from the attached images, I may well have had some success.
Although the anomalous object which is prominently shown in the initial image is clear enough, at the time the photograph was taken there was nothing visible to the naked eye; although having said this, those of you familiar with the UFO phenomena may be aware of the fact that UFOs sometimes operate in a manner which is suggestive of them being attuned in such a way, as to put them outside of the frequencies of light that human beings can perceive, but which are caught by cameras.
We still do not understand why this is so, but it happens and that is just the way it is. The first image (shown here) is of the UFO (literally an Unidentified Flying Object) as it was recorded at the time, and the following images show the same image zoomed in at 200x and 400x original magnification.
the numerous photos that I took here at this complex, DSC_0141 was the
only exposure with something unusual on it: The previous
and following shots DSC_0140 and DSC_0142 show no 'extras' on them; this is proof
that the mystery object is at a distance from the camera, and NOT simply a
dirt or other debris stuck on the lens as some have suggested.
Now those of you who are computer savvy will know about the manner in which JPEG images are created and stored and that they are prone to bit and byte errors which mean that fine details have a tendency towards corrupting and looking fuzzy when zoomed in, which does not help things when they have to be enlarged to reveal more detail.
The zooming-in process also has a negative effect on the way the image is perceived - making individual pixels so large as to make the original image hard to interpret even if you know what it is supposed to be. Now take a look at the original image again (cropped) along with some magnifications:
Such corruption is evident in the original image, (as a consequence of the way the image is captured and processed and stored) but in the second and third images this corruption has been subtly corrected as best it can be under the circumstances, in the hope of bringing out more detailing on the original shape of whatever this 'thing' was.
If this was an insect as has been suggested in the press, we would be seeing discolorations and changes in image density which may well represent wings, no matter how blurred the image, but there is nothing to suggest they were there. There is also a curious discoloration, a lightening on what may be the underside or side of whatever this is - whereas an insect would be a uniform color, predominately dark in most instances.
also added here a simple animation which shows a 400x enlargement
of the object with one frame overlaid with circles showing what appears
to be the possible location of shadows suggestive of structure. It's an
interpretation of course, but it may be possible.

Although the press did an excellent job in reporting on the object, they choose to suggest what it might not be, over what it actually is, and that is that it remains UNIDENTIFIED as of this time.
This is a bug
I should remind the reader that UFOlogy is not an exact science. In fact it is not even considered a science, and is generally dismissed by the mainstream sciences as they are unable to obtain consistent evidence to be able to confirm it, thus providing a stable platform on which to develop a theory; so their response is to say it cannot exist because they cannot prove it exists.
Very logical of them, isn't it?
I suggest in all fairness that unless anyone can tell me with absolute certainty that it was something that they can identify absolutely - then it should continue to remain 'unidentified', and that it may possibly be something nobody in mainstream science is willing to address or discuss as it would mean a radical shift in their thinking.
It's a familiar story... how UFOlogists and ordinary people who accidentally photograph such things every day around the world, have to struggle with the same issues which have been raised in the press since at least the early Fifties; some these people include Police officers or those in the military, and in such instances this can be a real wake-up call, because if they talk about what they saw or experienced, they can sometimes lose their jobs over it.

And finally Intech itself, (now called The Winchester Science Centre) ...a funny old place!
