Riddle ... Kelvin's photo and, inset, enlarged view of 'flying saucer'
THIS stunning photo of a UFO over Cornwall was last night hailed by experts as one of the best ever taken in Britain.
The classic flying saucer shape is seen above two ships.
And UFO watchers believe it could be proof we are NOT alone.
Kelvin Barbery snapped the mystery object from a coastal path between Swanpool and Maenporth, near Falmouth.
In a weird twist, Kelvin, 55, did not even see the UFO at the time.
He thought he was just taking a sea view — but when he loaded the digital camera card on to his computer, the round metallic “craft” was in the centre of the shot, about two miles away.
Kelvin, a facilities manager for schools, said: “There were a couple of tankers out in the bay and I thought that it made a nice shot.
“There was nothing in view and certainly no fault on the camera.
“When I got home I couldn’t believe what I had. I thought, ‘Wow, where did that come from?’ I’m not the sort to believe in UFOs — now I’m not so sure.”
Nick, formerly the official Ministry of Defence UFO analyst, said: “If I was still there I’d be looking at this very closely. The object looks structured, symmetrical and metallic. This man has caught something very interesting indeed.”
Michael Soper, of the Contact International UFO group, agreed: “This does appear genuine. Digital photos can be doctored but everything about it appears consistent.”
KELVIN took his picture at 3.31pm on December 29, with a Nikon D80 Digital SLR on automatic.
