Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
Полуостров Дилек, Национальный парк Дельта Буюк Мендерес

The author of the photo is a resident from Poland who was vacationing in Turkey. Relaxing on the beach, she decided to use the function of her iPhone 13 Pro Max, which allows you to take a series of quick photos. The phone took six almost identical pictures, but one of them turned out to be something unusual, which is difficult to explain. Analyzing the photos taken immediately one after another, you can notice the movement of water.

These photos were taken on June 20, 2023. Photos from the place: Dilek Peninsula, Delta Buyuk Menderes National Park

Original news

UAP - best sighting ever / Turkey

The following submission statement was provided by u/paranormalnapolska:

A reader from Poland, who was vacationing in Turkey, wrote to me. While relaxing on the beach, she decided to use a feature of her iPhone 13 Pro Max that allows taking a series of quick photos. The phone took six nearly identical pictures, but something unusual appeared in one of them, which is hard to explain. Analyzing the photos, which were taken immediately one after the other, you can notice the movement of the water (see the YouTube analysis link).

We received all six photos and two full originals.

Personally, I believe this is one of the best pictures of a UAP object I have ever seen. These photos were taken on June 20, 2023. It is not a water droplet or a thrown stone, as we considered such options. It is also not a camera error. This object was not visible to the naked eye, which suggests it must have been moving at a tremendous speed, so we are impressed that it was captured so clearly. The photos are in 3024x4032 resolution, ensuring ideal image quality. Honestly, when we received the original photos, I couldn't sleep the first night - it just can't be rationally explained. The world must see this.

As for me - I run a Polish Facebook profile on paranormal topics. I am followed by 50,000 people. I won't say anything more, I've been in shock for a few days. Maybe one of you will be able to explain this.

Beetles and other insects

Flying insects in photos and videos can be mistaken for UFOs.

Shooting can take place in the daytime or in the evening. When moving, the outlines of the insect can be both blurred and clear. Depending on this, dark spots or spots of bizarre shapes can be taken for UFOs. The video shows UFOs hovering in the sky, flying in a straight line or moving along a complex trajectory (for example, shooting May bugs near a tree against the background of the evening sky). Insects can be mistaken for UFOs by accident, or given out intentionally. At night, they can be highlighted by a flash.


Led toy, run at night or in the evening, can be taken for UFOs at random when shooting from afar. often such toys flight path is vertical, the maximum altitude does not exceed 15 meters and the flight time is only about 10 seconds.

Also here you can include accidentally caught in the frame such as balls, Frisbees, etc.

Капля (или загрязнение) на объективе или стекле

Often it's a small point on the photos, like hovering metal ball. At least - this is quite a big blur. Color, brightness and the presence of a highlight depends on the color of the reflected light source, background shooting and drop form.

Shape, color and density of pollution may vary depending on the source of the contamination and its nature. This can be as a desired pattern on the glass, and random.

Photo editing began to be used almost immediately after the advent of photography techniques. They were divided into methods of photomontage without manipulation of the image after receiving the photo and retouching of the photo itself or its negative (plate, film, etc.)

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.
