You read that right! This one is hot off the wire today as a woman in Chile claims to have photographed something that seems quite impossible.
This story is coming to us from Scott Corrales over at Inexplicata. Scott is the guy who traverses all the Latin countries in search of the unexplained and then is nice enough to translate these stories into English for us.
There’s not much to say as far as a lead in, so lets get right to it with quoted material straight from Inexplicata:
Mrs. Janette Villa Torres, married, with a high school degree and considered a trustworthy person at her place of employment, since she works as a municipal official in downtown Angol (9th Region), never imagined she would manage to photograph what we are showing to our readers.
Her intention was to take a photo of the Moon and the planet Venus, which shone in the heavens on 7 November at 21:30 hours. Mrs. Janette was in the back yard of her home and used her 16.7 pixel Samsung digital camera for this purpose. There was nothing particularly unusual about her surroundings. She even remarked to researcher Raul Gajardo Lepold that there is neither public nor private lighting in this part of her house. She did, however, noticed a sort of spark or noise in the flash at the moment the photo was taken, which we mention for purposes of subsequent analyses. The distance separating her from the shrubs appearing in the photo is some four meters, and their height is also close to four meters.
Upon seeing the image recovered from the device, she rightly astonished to see a transparent entity with light sources in its body over to the right hand side of the photograph. There was no doubt about it: the silhouette of a person with a very clearly defined outline (arms, head and back) could be seen at first sight. All indications are that the being had its back toward the camera and in a diagonal direction (45 degrees)
At this moment we are conducting some inquiries about whether it could be smoke from the other side of the wall that can be seen in the photo, or if a highly peculiar light effect caused this silhouette. It is only logical that there should be a variety of opinions, more so when the effects of digital photography are still little known.
We customarily received a significant number of photos from our readers and we know that photos of “UFOs” and similar subjects are controversial overall. For this reason we have chosen to publish a few that seem curious to us and have a distinct provenance.
We are still following the trail of this story. In the meantime, we attach the photo for our readers’ consideration, as they will surely have their own opinions about it.
And now, the photo of the day:
I have to be honest, I’m stumped on this one at the moment. If the story is true, there is little that can explain it, other than a photographic anomaly of some sort. Of course, that would be an easy answer at this juncture. I honestly wish I had more time today to really look this photo over, but I wanted to get it out there as soon as I could.
I plan to really examine this in the next couple of days and should there be something obvious to deem it a hoax, I’ll certainly let you all know. I will also keep you updated with the ongoing investigation at the location.
I tend to trust Scott Corrales as he tries to be up front about what he reports. Although, he can’t always fully extend that further, he does have several trustworthy constituents.
