Is this new proof of UFOs in the night sky?

By The Siberian Times reporter
18 May 2015

Photographs show red lights hovering about the ground and then moving vast distances in less than one minute.

'The first picture was taken at 12.49am. Immediately, at 12.50am, I decided to take a second shot to ensure that the camera hadn’t made a mistake, or that there was some bug or glare [on the lens].' Picture: Dmitry Yushkevich

An amateur photographer has captured pictures of what he claims is a 'UFO' after seeing strange red lights hovering above Omsk. Dmitry Yushkevich was taking images of his home city of Tara late at night on May 15 when he noticed six unusual-looking lights.

'They were arranged one behind the other,' he wrote on his Vkontakte page, after uploading the photos. 'The first picture was taken at 12.49am.

'Immediately, at 12.50am, I decided to take a second shot to ensure that the camera hadn’t made a mistake, or that there was some bug or glare [on the lens].

'At first I didn’t notice the object on the second image, as I only saw it at home as I processed the images. On the second image the object is behind the television tower, and that is why I did not notice it right away.'

There is no official explanation for what the lights could be, although previously some experts have said that insects or glare on the camera lens, or satellites moving in space have been the cause of other supposed UFO sightings.

However, the Omsk region is known for its strange happenings including crop circles and numerous claims of unidentified flying objects in the sky at night.

Vladimir Krupko, head of the Omsk planetarium, said: 'We have an astronomical camp in the Omsk region where we study the sky for about a month.

'One time I went from the camp to a field for a walk and found a 'vertetrav' crop circle, with spirals that went to the side, slowly twisting. Wheat was put into these circles and were intertwined. For me, such a 'vertetrav' is a mystery and I cannot understand if it is connected with earth or space.'

He also said that in 1990 to 1991 UFOs regularly flew over Omsk, the first spotted by employees of the Omsk Synthetic Rubber Plant. They noticed an object in the sky with a 'cloud of gas in the middle and two reddish lights on the edges'. 

Similar objects were seen the same evening, including by a couple travelling on the motorway by car. 

Mr Krupko said: 'They saw a bright beam of light illuminating the ground. The woman said to her husband to slow down, and the object flew over the road, turned the beam of light on and lit them up. The car stalled.

'On the edge of the object they counted 12 lights. It was hanging for half an hour and then flew to the south. Similar objects have been spotted by fishermen who suddenly found their watches running slow for a week.'

It doesnt matter how much proof you give some people, some will still doubt it even if they get crashed on by a ufo.

Looking at the meta data for the JPEG photo is below. According to the info the picture was created at 14:58 and modified at 18:36 just under 4 hours after the photo was taken? The editor was Adobe Photoshop. If this is military time, the photo was created at 2:58 pm which is the middle of the day? Am I wrong here.

What's that's pole lit up on the left? Because that has six lights from top to bottom... so that has something to do with the photographs. As for being UFO's? You wish!

Always the same with UFOs -- us against them. Aren’t they curious, too? And if they know things, why don’t they tell us? The object should be to figure things out. The internet could be a clearing house. If no explanation, it gets investigated. Maybe a good time to try to change the culture, to put us all on the same side. We all are in this together. suzanne@mightycompanions.org

It's just a photography trick, time lapse, open shutter or whatever. Seen this many times, it's an airplane or a helicopter, the photographer didn't intentionally set out to hoax but couldn't resist when he saw the pictures. He didn't leave the shutter open the whole time, obviously, but it's just a camera trick.

Well, nice, but when something like this happens, please don´t take only two pictures, take 10, 20, 100s :) Do you have EXIF data for the two photos?
