A tourist unexpectedly photographed what looks like a pair of disc-shaped objects flying above the water of the 22-mile-long freshwater lake.
ack on April 29, Alan Betts was vacationing in the Scottish Highlands with his wife, Anna, and her parents. They were at a holiday cottage near Urquhart Castle — a longtime monster hunting location. In fact, you can spend your day in front of a computer screen, from anywhere in the world, looking for Nessie via a live Loch Ness web cam.
But on this day in April, it wasn’t Nessie that had its picture taken — it was something else.
“Alan is quite skeptical about paranormal things in general. I am not,” Anna Betts told The Huffington Post in an email from the UK. “I believe in what human beings sometimes can’t see or explain. I am quite a spiritual person overall. However, I have been quite skeptical about UFOs in particular — up until now.
“We can say 100 percent that the camera was perfectly fine. It was raining very heavily, there were no lights in the house to resemble the objects in any shape or form. We were also quite high up, about 900 feet over the lake. And our Akita dog was quite weird that day, barking into the sky,” Anna Betts said.
It was only after the weather dramatically changed from total sunshine to intense cloudiness that Anna’s mother went out and snapped a picture of the landscape.
At the time the picture was taken, none of the family members noticed the thing — or things — in the air above the water of the loch. Betts and his wife only recently looked at the images from their vacation, and that’s when they suddenly noticed the unusual aerial objects.
“After the holiday, we were looking through the pictures on our PC, as they were taken on a digital camera. On the PC screen, the resolution was better and it was only then we saw the objects. When we zoomed in (picture below), we were in shock,” Betts, the director of a refrigerator company in Bradford, UK, eventually told Caters News Agency in the UK after he and his wife decided to publish the picture.
