Famous Florida Uruguay UFO pictures sequence taken July 1977


July 11, 1977

UFO Sightings report : On the afternoon of July 11, 1977, Delgado was working in his greenhouse in Florida, when he heard a high-pitched humming sound around 3:30 PM.
Delgado told Rocoroni it was 'something like that produced by an electric motors or a ventilator' and that he didnt pay much attention initially, as it was not constant, but its intensity and tone increased and decreased perceptibly.
Delgado eventually decided to investigate the cause of the sound and, as he looked around, he noticed a silver-shaped object moving smoothly in the air some 200 meters from his position and 50 m above the ground.
'I was slow to react, never had the thought occurred to me that I might encounter a thing like this,' said Delgado.
The witness remembered he had a camera loaded with 100 ASA Perutz color slide film in his house and so he rushed in to grab it.
Selecting a shutter speed of 1/125th second and an aperture of f:11, Delgado managed to take a total of seven shots of the object.
'When I took the first photograph the UFO was still moving very slowly toward the south,' he said, but he had barely snapped it when 'the object drastically altered its velocity and trajectory and began climbing maneuvers as it increased elevation from the ground . . . At times it was very difficult to follow it with the camera, at times it appeared totally immobile and then jumped to extreme velocity . . . at the same time performing the most incredible maneuvers, withdrawing and then re-approaching my position again. It’s really difficult to describe the movements of that thing.'
The sighting lasted some 3 minutes but he heard the sound for another 3 minutes or so.
