Argentina: A local resident claims to have seen and photographed UFOs

 KATRIEL COLONY – On Wednesday evening, a local resident strolling through a public urban space in this locality managed to photograph an "unidentified flying object." Several images circled Katriel's social media and hit the Internet on May 25th.

 This was reported by local media Catriel25Noticias. His website reported that "a local resident driving a car through the Barrio Parque YPF area noticed a glowing object suspended in the air. At first he suspected it was a drone, but since it stayed in one place for several minutes, it caught his attention." Later, the object quickly rose and disappeared.

The man claimed that he witnessed the glowing device around 22:00 and took several photos of it from a place located at the intersection of General Mosconi Avenue - the main access point to Katriel - with Estrellas Avenue and Jamaica Street. A local resident said that the photos were taken between YPF Laguna, Plaza de las Energias and Plaza de la Actividad Física.

Hypotheses

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Re-reflections in lens lenses from a strong light source

The lens consists of a set of lenses (in some lenses - of mirrors), designed for mutual compensation of aberrations and assembled into a single system.

From the contour light (bright light sources behind the subject or next to it), caught in the frame or located outside the frame, parasitic reflections from the internal elements of the lens are formed, called glare (or in slang "hares").
