Photograph from Brasil
25 January 1971. - It's about 9:30 a.m., not far from Praia de Armaçâo, in the state of Santa Caterina. A young man of 18, Gunar Gruenzner, is taking pictures of the landscape when suddenly an intense light enters his field of view. The luminous intruder moves as if wanting to execute a descent. The young man has his finger on the shutter release button and photographs the scene. He then tries to find the object he just photographed with his eyes, but without success : the sunlit sky is empty. He forgets what happened, thinking he was the victim of an optical illusion, and continues to photograph the panorama. It is only in February, after he had his Agfacolor film developed and printed, that he notices something odd in one of his pictures. On the initiative of Mr. Fleischresser, owner of the optical shop where the witness had his film developed, the case is brought to the attention of the newspaper "La Nouvelle de Joinville" and consequently the public. The details of the shot, as given by its author, are : aperture 11 or 16, speed 1/125, distance set at infinite. The witness heard no sound (the sea being close by), there was no smell or heat. The negative was submitted to photographic experts and was labelled authentic, with no trace of trickery.
Editorial note by LDLN : On the other hand, two Brazilian professional photographers stated that the peculiar shape is due to a film defect. To us, this seems practically impossible. After all, the witness stated that he saw the object through the viewer of his camera.
