You always had to watch out for ghost apps and Virgin Mary apps. Now, the UFO apps are fooling local news teams.

UFO Photo of “Vintage” Flying Saucer Purportedly Snapped, But.. | Who Forted? Magazine.

A student in Sakon Nakhon, Thailand claims to have unwittingly snapped a photo of a “vintage-looking” flying saucer on Christmas day, stirring some talk over whether or not the extraterrestrials have a thing for classic vehicles.

During an afternoon of “Sport Day” festivities scheduled by the Sawang Dindaeng School on December 25th, Thidarat Boonlee whipped out her cell phone to take a photo of the grandstands where her friends were seated. However, upon going back and reviewing the snapshot, Boonlee claims to have found something strange hovering just through the trees. When she went to snap another photo, the craft was gone.

I saw this story which was posted on a newscast in Thailand but thought it too ridiculous to post. There was only one photo even though it was reportedly over a stadium full of people! But the story was quickly ripped apart when other photos of the same “classic” flying saucer showed up around the world. The explanation? An iphone app.

You may want to believe but NEVER believe anything based on this kind of crappy evidence.

    As long as somebody keeps creating this kind of app for smart phones (the ghost app as another example), photo evidence, no matter how good, is going to have to be deemed inconclusive at best.

      That has always been true, though. Photo manipulation is as old as photography itself. Hoaxing is probably as old as man, indeed there are numerous well known hoaxes from pre-1800.
