Ufo seen out of plane window Portugal, May 2009

I am always telling people to keep an eye out of the plane for ufos and get the window seat because ufos are very commonly seen from planes... ( I saw one in over Argentina last year myself infact!)

This great one was submitted by one of our readers , would like to know your thoughts on this one - thank-you Ian: (any more info ian?)

In the age of photoshop we do need further scruitiny and image checking - anyone who knows about image editing please check higher quality version and tell me what you think ?

It's a fake. The pixel pattern is different in the surrounding area around the "ufo". You can tell someone used a smoothing filter around the object to hide their poor work.

Mike I had the same thoughts as you on the pixel resolution of the object, it's too clear compared to the engine of the plane which is nowhere near as sharp

Fake, when you enhance the surroundings of the object you can clearly see it's been fingered :-)

Disappointing really. It looks good, but by comparing the pixel noise in areas of the photo with similar tone you can see it is unusual in the low level of noise it has. It was probably taken at a higher resolution then shrunk to fit. There is also something a bit wrong with the shadowing. The sun direction seems not quite right, though given that the shape is not clear that might not be an issue.
