This eyewitness accidentally caught a UFO in a photo of the area in Utah.

The witnesses say: 

We were in Moab, Utah. In one of the first paired photos of a large rock formation that I took, there is this object that seems to be rising at an extremely high speed. When I took the picture, the object was slightly higher than the cliff. I didn't look at the photo until the next day when I noticed the object.

Original news

Date of sighting: Oct 30, 2021
Location of sighting: Moab, Utah, USA

This eyewitness accidentally caught a UFO in a photo of an area in Utah. The glowing object moved from behind a rock to get caught in a photo. Although the UFO was not seen with the naked eye, the digital eye is more perfect and captures every detail. There are many colors of the spectrum that the human eye cannot see. For instance if the UFO is cloaked in infrared then we wont be able to see it, but every camera can detect it to some degree. All the videos of UFOs released by the US government were recorded using an infrared camera to capture them in high detail. So...such cases have been documented.

Eyewitness states: We were in Moab, Utah. One of the first couple photos that I took of a large rock formation has this object in it that appears to be elevating at an extremely high rate of speed. The object was a bit above the rock formation when I took the photo. I did not look at it until the next day when I noticed the object.

Objects in motion, captured on a long exposure

Most often this artifact is called skayfish if the lens gets a passing bird or insect. It is based on the discrepancy between the speed of the video and the frequency of the flapping of insect wings. Essentially, each video drops a few strokes of the wings of an insect, which when viewed looks like "arrow", provided with long protuberances. The motion of the insect by its translucent body seems to "boom" and vibration of the wings give the appearance of bumps.

The reflection on the glass

The object may be reflected light or any light source. The type of source (lamp, lantern, lampshade, glare from the mirrors of any shape and .t.n.) and the type of reflective glass in the photo can be crosses, circles, objects bizarre.

Reflections in the lens from strong light source

The lens consists of the lens consists of a set of lenses (some lenses of mirrors), designed for mutual compensation of aberrations and collected into a single system.

From the backlight (bright light sources behind the subject or beside him), caught in the frame or outside the frame boundary are formed parasitic pureraria from internal lens elements, called glare (or in slang "hares").
