An Amateur astronomer snapped a few extremely interesting images
Orion nebula, and UFO hunters are turning towards his
images as proof as massive, interstellar alien spaceships.
The Amateur Astronomer from North Carolina was exploring the Orion
Nebula when he spotted a strange cigar-shaped UFO. Further analysis
of the footage revealed a few mystery objects.
While the astronomer was focusing on his
Newtonian telescope, he
observed a massive cylinder-shaped UFO that popped up on the screen
of his laptop, capturing the enigmatic event in a single frame that
lasted for 30 seconds.
Immediately after noticing the object that 'should not have been
captured' near the Orion Nebula, the amateur astronomer turned to
MUFON for explanations.
The amateur astronomer wrote the
following report to MUFON:
"I was out collecting
data on M42 Orion nebula, as I was fine focusing my 8 in
astrograph/Newtonian Telescope this appeared on my laptop screen
after the 1st I ran 5 frames @ 30.2-second sequence and it shows
the movement of the objects at the bottom of the frames.
cigar-shaped object was captured in a single 30.2-second frame
and the 5-frame sequence followed because I'd thought the thrill
was over Not the case.
It had backup right behind it in the
It's not the 1st and
surely not the last as I search the night sky for galaxies,
nebulae and the truth that's out there."
More objects were allegedly spotted,
and are visible at the bottom of the image.

Are these cigar-shaped object really UFO's,
or is there another explanation?

Furthermore, after observing
the UFO, the amateur astronomer noticed
that the UFO sighting was not over as he identified several 'other'
cigar-shaped objects which he also captured in a sequence of 5
frames at 30.2 seconds, and they clearly show the movement of
objects at the bottom of the frames.
However, Facebook page
UFO of Interest takes a closer look at the
alleged UFOs, and offers a possible explanation proposed by Dave
Greg and Jerry Bell from the Facebook group "dazzathecameraman":
