The Earliest UFO Photographs
These UFOs could actually be of extraterrestrial origin, and some of the most interesting evidence comes in the form of old photos. Whether you believe in their “purity” or not, whether you believe that there are aliens among us – these are the earliest pictures taken of unidentified flying objects, free from the magic touch of Photoshop.
1 Mt. Washington, New Hampshire 1870
This is considered to be the oldest UFO photo ever taken. This photograph depicts a cloud formation over the summit of Mt. Washington in the Winter of 1870 – 1871. The image is part of an antique stereoview that happens to contain an unexplained cigar-shaped object. It is simultaneously the oldest and one of the best UFO sightings on record. It is impossible to be a plane, because there were no planes in the sky in 1870 and no digital manipulation. In 2002, this image was purchased on Ebay for $385.00 by Samuel M. Sherman, president of Independent-International Pictures Corp.
