Driver Photographs ‘Creature’ inside UFO in Iowa

POCAHONTAS, Iowa —  A man says he has photographed a creature inside an unidentified flying object on an Iowa road.

The photographer, who didn’t provide a name, says he was driving home after visiting his relatives in Iowa in late October of last year when he stopped his truck at about 4.30 p.m. CST to take pictures of what he called a “strange cloud formation”. What he claims to have seen next, however, was apparently different from an oddly-shaped cloud. He did not disclose the name of the road.

“I got out of the truck. Walked in front of the truck and noticed a fast moving light that changed directions rapidly,” he wrote on his Facebook account and on the MUFON website.

After snapping a few pictures, the man claims, he suddenly felt “dazed” as if he “had been drinking”. But it wasn’t alcohol, he said.

“It was as if I’d moved at a fast rate of speed, then suddenly stopping,” he explained.

When he went back inside his truck, he says he began looking at the pictures he had just taken when he noticed a cylindrical object levitating a few feet over the road in one of the images.

“I zoomed in to see what it was, it had a hatch door open and something with two eyes peering at me,” he said about the picture, also posted on his Facebook page.

The photograph, which appears to be the screenshot of an image originally captured with an iPhone, shows the alleged hovering object. It resembles a metal trash can with a half-open lid on the top decorated with a yellow or golden stripe. Inside, there is what looks like a human-shaped head with an apparent pair of eyes. The object was, reportedly, about 20 feet from the photographer.

“It freaked me out,” he continued. “I know we are not the only living thing in the universe but when you are less than 29 feet from E.T. it gets real.”

It is not yet clear whether the pictures have been altered in any way.

The man did not explain why he didn’t notice the alleged object prior to taking the photograph, its behavior, length of the sighting before resuming driving and whether there were any sounds associated with it. No further physical description of the reported creature was provided by the eyewitness.

“I never shared this with anyone until now,” he said.

In 1961, married couple Betty and Barney Hill claimed they were abducted by entities they had first spotted inside an unidentified flying object while driving on a road in rural New Hampshire.

Last week, a Michigan man said he had seen a “grey alien” inside a friend’s home.

Pocahontas, located in Pocahontas County, is a city currently holding about 1700 residents.

    I recently looked at some of the staple UFO stories we`ve been fed for years..upon even just a little further reading of research done by people investigating the incident it is clear that most of them are nothing more than bullshit…yet many of these stories are touted time and again…one that springs to mind is the “Ingrid Cold” account … reading further research reports soon shows that this was rubbish with the guy writing letters to gullible people asking for money to do various things needed to help the alien or whatever…there`s lots of them that are similar…I DO believe that the phenomenon is real as I saw a UFO many years ago…I used to think most people were truthful regarding these accounts but found out much of what people say is just made up…who knows whether this is real opr not but from the image I don`t see it can be given much credence…shame.
