During his last survey of the Moon, German astrophotographer Sebastian Voltmer captured what he believed was a UFO. He could not explain what actually appeared into the lens of his camera, since all logical versions turned out to be untenable.

Voltmer said that during his last filming of the Moon, he saw through the lens how something very fast and bright flew past against the background of the Earth’s satellite. Since the object was moving at high speed, it is poorly visible in the photograph and it is impossible to determine its exact shape.

It was initially thought that the unknown object was either a satellite or a space station, but both options were scrapped because satellites do not typically fly past the Moon at such high speeds.

Another theory put forward that seemed logical was a meteorite. But this hypothesis was not confirmed either. Mainly because the object did not have a characteristic tail and its speed did not correspond to this type of cosmic body. Another argument refuting this assumption was the lack of records of any meteorites in the International Meteor Organization at the time of Voltmer’s filming.

The photographer also ruled out the presence of flies or dust near the lens.

“Judging by the focus, the object must have been more than 500 meters away. I think it flew past the Earth at a distance of 100 to 200 kilometers,” Voltmer said.

The astrophotographer suggested that space debris could have gotten into the photo, but he is not entirely sure about this version either. He is confused by the lack of similar reports from other space observers.
