UFO’s in Turkey?

I’m not sure what is going on in Turkey but i did see this in june 2007…..from the daily HÜRRİYET (turkish media)……..

“The man who saw seven UFOs within a day

Ayhan Hacısalihoğlu, 43-year-old Mediterranean branch sales manager of ECA Elmor company, saw seven unidentified flying objects in the sky on June 11 at 11:30 p.m. while sitting in the balcony of his home in Antalya, wrote the daily Hürriyet yesterday.

Hacısalihoğlu recorded the objects with his camera for five and a half minutes and showed the footage to Hasan Uğur Epirden, the chairman of Sirius UFO Research Center in Antalya, a tourist city in the western Mediterranean.

Selahattin Kurt, the deputy manager responsible for the air traffic in Antalya airport, said that 23 unidentified flying objects had been seen on the night of May 31. However, none of them were picked up by the radar installation”.

“The records are reviewed over and over again and we have determined that the flying objects in the records are ‘space objects’,” experts at the airport wrote in the reports of June 11 air records. Hacısalihoğlu asked $100,000 for his footage, read the daily yesterday….”

Of course, i would like to know what they refer as “space objects”..is this meoteorites,ect. or possibly the way it has been translated (from turkish to english)…..and whether this is being disputed.

Also in june, 2007 UFO sightings at Didim (see here for article)…. there have also been rumours of a possible ufo fleet sighting recently, but i cannot find any news on this…. 

Previously for 2007, the only other reference i can see was from …..

The Sabah Newspaper (an English speaking Turkish newspaper), of Istanbul, Turkey, on January 4, 2007 mentioned.

People Claim Seeing A UFO In Istanbul

Mysterious lights seen in Istanbul skies have baffled people on Wednesday night. Witnesses have claimed that the lights were coming from a UFO.

In Bahcelievler district of Yenibosna, Istanbul, people have called news agencies on Wednesday night and reported unidentified white lights flying in the sky. According to the eye witnesses, the flying object was revolving around itself and was dazzling.

Update: 2nd August, 2007

UFO-Melting-Pot: “in the area surrounding the princes island 25-30 ufos spotted. video recordings exist.” Please see here for information. Information from http://unconventionalindividualist.wordpress.com/ thanks for this 🙂 

Update 4th August

“A bright sun coloured UFO, swift, noiseless and melon-shaped, swerves in the sky at speed then flys toward the sea and on into the horizon, Turkey, 9.30pm, Saturday 1st July”.
An account of a ufo sighting, is recounted here (thanks to RealUFO.co.uk).

August 10th Update

Not sure of the validity of this video from you tube, but here it is….

August 13th UPDATE

Thanks to Alan Barrett for sending in 2 photos….

As he mentions in the comment below, the “daylight photo from 6th July 2007,that contains something i did not know was there,when i took the shot.In a sequence of three photos,taken from a moving minibus(dolmus),the middle one shows something over FETHIYE town in the distance,just below the farther away mountains.This looks quite symetrical after a magnification,and is not dirt on the windscreen”.

 Alan was using a Canon PowerShot A570 IS, and shot the photo at 2.38 pm.

Looking at the photos, i am afraid the second one is far to small for a proper analysis, and even the first one is proving a challenge. On looking at this photo, i noticed what seems like reflections (after enlarging 50%), just below the telegraph poles on the left of the picture (figure 1, did not use unsharpen mask).

The object in question, is just above the road on the right, and can be seen enlarged (figure 2- image 100% enlarged, but untouched…ie no unsharp mask,ect).

I next sharpened the image as can be seen in figure 3 below.

And finally, i took the part of the object, and highlighted it with colour to see if anything was picked up….figure4 below.

My conclusions are that i’m not sure, as the image is quite small, i’m afraid; although i cannot rule out a very small chip in the window. If anyone would like to comment on these images please do. 

Thank you alan for sending them in, sorry i cannot be of more help. 🙂

    i find this very interesting about Turkey.On the 9th July 2007,at 2240hours,i and i am sure many others watched two orange/yellow lights shoot across the sky from the direction of Fethiye(Turkey) towards the far end of Calis Beach(a land distance of 5 miles approx.)and come to a mind boggling abrupt stop!They where both stationary about a couple of hundred feet above the ground,for about ten minutes,one nearer and lower than the other one.No noise came from them at all.The following night,at 2400hours in the same area,at the far end of Calis Beach,i was amazed to see at least SEVEN of the same orange/yellow lights at various heights and distances away,yet within what appeared to be a fairly tight cluster.Again there was no noise,and they seemed to fade away after ten minutes or so.Someone must have taken photos?,as this was a busy promenade that is traffic free and contains many restaurants with hundreds of diners and walkers over a half mile length.My photos are a dissapointment,all i have are two black blank squares-at first glance!Upon magnification of a small red dot,you are left with a red cigar shape that looks like it has two pairs of fins ,one on top and one below.I have a daylight photo from 6th July 2007,that contains something i did not know was there,when i took the shot.In a sequence of three photos,taken from a moving minibus(dolmus),the middle one shows something over FETHIYE town in the distance,just below the farther away mountains.This looks quite symetrical after a magnification,and is not dirt on the windscreen,i am sure.If i can send you a copy,please let me know how,kind regards,ALAN.

    Thanks for sharing this information on here!
    As you can see (and it seems you are right) i have found a link to a you tube video, which i have posted under the updated information, (10th August); although as to the validity of this is always in question, i’m looking into this.
    I must please draw you to the article, i have written on ufo balloons found at
    and also in relation to this, see MARA link for video examples of fire balloons.
    We need to eliminate what it is not, before we can come up with what we think it could be (sorry to sound a bit boring on this front).
    I only say this, as alot of the recent England ufo sightings have been confirmed as chinese lanterns/possible ufo balloons.
    If you like (i’d be interested to see them), you can send photos to (if in digital format?) dandare868-ufonews@yahoo.co.uk
    and i’ll take a look at them for you.
    You may, as i am a ufo enthusiast (doing this in my spare time), like to mention this, too a ufo organization as well, that have more at their disposal in both time and people. You can see links to these on the left of this blog under the appropriate tag.
    Thanks again…. 🙂
