Did these climbers just capture photos of an ALIEN SPACECRAFT hovering near the summit of Mount Washington?
PARANORMAL investigators are looking at claims a group of climbers have caught a UFO on camera while hovering over Mount Washington.
The unidentified hikers sent the images, which appear to show a spacecraft flying over the White Mountains, to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) for their opinion.
MUFON are the world’s biggest organisation dedicated to alien sightings and UFO reports and they are now analysing the validity of the claim.
In the report sent to MUFON, the man said:”I noticed the object in the background of two photos that were taken of me and my daughter and her friend on the top of Mount Washington when I zoomed in on them.
“Both photos were taken by another person at the summit.
“Both photos were taken no more than five seconds apart.”
The snaps have also caught the attention of UFO blogger, Scott Waring, an expert who runs ufosightingsdaily.com.
Mr Waring blogged: “UFOs are often seen around mountain peeks and this sighting is no exception.
“Some climbers at the Mount Washington summit decided to takes some photos of their victorious moment and accidentally caught a UFO watching them in the distance.
“I think that UFOs like to observer these people because they are the ones that think outside the box, seeking adventure and chasing it down.
“Just like meeting an alien would be quite the adventure.”
He claimed the case reminded him of a similar sighting by the well-known mountain climber Reinhold Messner, who apparently saw a moon-sized object while he was climbing the Himalayas in 1981.
But, sadly for the hikers, Scott Brando, who runs ufoofinterest.org said the picture is nothing but a fly getting in the way of the lens.
He said: “It’s just a fly.
