- (ABC News 10 Screen Shot)
A woman has claimed to have seen a UFO over a historic barn in Santee, Calif., on May 7, according to reports.
Ellen Henry, a member of the Santee Historical Society (SHS) located in San Diego County, has photographed what appears to be an object in the sky above Santee earlier this month. According to ABC affiliate News 10, Henry said, "It was clear and certainly not a bug."
Henry was taking pictures of a historical barn building, the Edgemooor Barn, at the time of the sighting.
She said, "I was at the Edgemoor property, in the middle of the day, to take pics of the barn to update the SHS barn logo. I was constantly looking up and around the area, including the sky's background, so I can get it just right, and not at anytime did I see anything in the sky or heard a sound of an aircraft."
She actually didn't see the object with her naked eye, but it was only after she took the picture that she realized her camera shot had caught something peculiar in the sky.
Henry said, "I noticed a 'speck' on my LCD screen after I took the shot to check for clarity, and only realized it wasn't a speck when I downloaded it on my computer."
Janet Kwak in her on-air 10News report, has said that nearby aircraft do not seem to be behind the sighting: "The barn sits under several flight paths. We called Gillespie Field and MCAS Miramar (Marine Corps Air Station), but neither could offer an explanation."
Henry also added, "There is no way this was a commercial aircraft. I would have heard it, especially as low as it seemed to be. Someone did mention perhaps it was a drone. However, I have not seen any drones that were round or oval, and lacking wings, rudders or propellers -- even the drone that looks like a fly has wings."
In a further twist, Henry has said that after she took the photo her camera mysteriously stopped working.
