50-year-old “UFO photograph” goes viral

US: A 50-year-old photograph is making a buzz on the internet after claims that it shows an unidentified flying object (UFO). Published by a number of media outlets and shared widely on Twitter, the black and white photo shows a saucer-like object over Costa Rica.

Users say that this is the best photograph of a UFO (believed to be used by aliens) ever taken. It was clicked by aerial photographer Sergio Loaiza in September, 1971, as he flew over Costa Rica on a mission to survey land for the construction of a hydroelectric project, according to a report in Daily Star. The project was planned near the Arenal Volcano in the South American country. Loaiza took multiple high resolution photos from an altitude of 10,000 feet of the lake below and surrounding rainforest at 20-second intervals using his automated 100lb camera. In one of the frames, a shiny metallic disc is seen flying between Loaiza’s Aero Commander F680 aircraft and the ground. The photo was not very clear initially, but the claims about UFO started swirling around only when it was enhanced later.

That photo was the property of National Geographic Costa Rica, which had ordered the survey to be carried out, to study the potential impact of the hydroelectric project on surrounding land and water.
