Remarkable images have emerged of an anomaly, apparently inadvertently captured over Japan. Two photographs seem to show five bright lights equidistant from each other, high in a dusk-darkened sky above a stadium.
Self-styled expert in all things extraterrestrial Scott Waring believes this is photographic proof of the existence of alien visitors.
He took to his UFO Sightings Daily blog to speculate about the significance of these photos.
He said: “Five glowing orbs were seen over a stadium in Japan this week.
“The stadium is 29km [18 miles] from Tokyo.
The overwhelming majority of UFO sightings can be explained through a phenomenon called pareidolia.
This is a form of apophenia describing the brain’s proclivity to spot recognisable shapes and patterns where they do not exist.
This can cause people to see faces in clouds or UFOs in actually mundane objects.
The US space agency NASA said in a statement: “Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where people see recognisable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.
“There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space.”
