Alan Barrett, kindly got back in contact, after he sent me a description and photos of an encounter over Fethiye (Turkey) in 2007. I thought it appropriate that i reproduce the blog post from august 2007 below.

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. :)

He now goes on to add, that he also used a camcorder on the same holiday, and whilst studying the film at Calis beach has possibly captured something else (whilst on a 2 week holiday). He mentions that he caught something hovering over an area close to an island about a mile away; he played the film back over a tv screen, and froze the picture (see below) several times.

He took a photo of the resulting image on a digital camera.The results had television lines on them,but the shape of the UFO could be described as a large bell-like object.It also moved quite a distance from the far end of the beach to its position over the island in just a few seconds.

Of course, due to the distance, it might be a bird in flight? Although not being there i cannot comment further.

What do you believe it was? can we learn anything more from this? is it a UFO?

Thank you Alan for your update, and thanks for your support for the blog…
