Accidentally Captured UFO Photo: 1983 Appletreewick, Near Skipton, Yorkshire, UK
Please click image to enlarge.
This photograph was taken in 1983 in a little village called Appletreewick near Skipton in Yorkshire England.
There has been quite a debate regarding this object which wasn't seen at the time; some think it's a UFO, or a portal – others that it is something paranormal.
Whatever it is, it isn't a hot air balloon.
The Craven Arms was the location where this mysterious image was taken in 1983, well before the age of digital photography.
A local resident took a photograph with a Kodak camera of traditional Morris Dancers outside the pub. When the film was developed she was shocked to notice a large, glowing, orange orb behind the tree in the middle ground of the picture.
This reminds us slightly of the Solway Firth Spaceman in that no one saw this bright orange ball until the film was developed; same thing with the Solway Firth, no one saw the spaceman but the camera managed to see this figure, and I think that is what has happened here in this image... somehow the camera has managed to capture something that is invisible to the naked eye.The area surrounding Appletreewick also has a fascinating history... indicated by several ancient sites, such as this Bronze Age standing stone circle, located on a sloping hillside overlooking Hebden Moor and Grimwith Reservoir.
