Myrtle Beach Photo - An Update


Back on March 16, I reported on a sighting from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. That report said:

There are still many sightings of UFOs inside our atmosphere such as the one from Myrtle Beach, SC, from March 6 of this year. The witness said that he was on top of a parking garage and looking for Venus and Jupiter. The witness saw two bright slanted disks in the south, and not the west where the planets were and he took a picture. He took a second picture only seconds later but the UFOs were gone.

I found the pictures intriguing because the witness said that he had out looking for Venus and Jupiter, which had accounted for dozens of UFO sightings. Since he was looking for the planets, it was clear to me that what he had seen were not those planets.

The Myrtle Beach photograph for those who missed it in the first go round.

Now, I have said, as I post these sightings, that if there is new and better information, I will pass it along. Just yesterday, I received an email from a Spanish colleague, Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, who pointed out that the objects in the photograph were lens flares. He provided a link to a website hosted by Juan Carlos Victorio Uranga, who had studied the photographs and provided the solution. You can see that analysis here:


While the solution is interesting and is probably correct, I will have to note that the witness said that he saw two disks in the sky. That might rule out the lens flares. The sudden disappearance is interesting but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the slightest movement of the camera would change the angles and if the lens flare solution is correct, that would account for the UFOs disappearance.

You can decide for yourselves if you accept the solution. I have no reason to doubt it, other than the witness suggestion that he saw the UFO in the sky before he took the picture.
