Abovetopsecret reported the couple said they first noticed the UFO when they scrolled through the shots on their camera. The German woman recounted:
"We could not believe what we saw, such a strange shape. We immediately started discussing possibilities to define what it could be, but had no idea. We didn't notice anything was in the sky when I took the shot. We didn't experience anything strange. It was a warm, sunny day, but there was a strong wind out of the Northeast. There was no sound."
According to Defence Net the photograph does not appear to have been tampered with and appears authentic. However, there were no reported sightings or photgraphs of extra-terrestrial bodies or little green men.
