False UFO Reports From Turkey

Two UFO sightings, one in Istanbul Beykoz, the other in Antalya,
were reported a few days ago. The one which claimed to be seen
in Istanbul was shot by an amateur camera on 26th of May. Even
though it is a new camera, the shot published B/W and some of
the frames on film were edited, so TUVPO gave start to an
observation. It is obtained that the vision of the shot was
inverted and that it does not bear the colour density of the sky
of the time (Istanbul 6:30 PM). And also it is obtained that the
vision of flying object which is extremely enlarged during the
edition of the film, is a deformed silhouette, so anyone can
suggest their imaginary opinions by watching the video. During
the footage, only Venus could be seen brightly on the stated
horizon. It is clearly observed that, after the invertation
process (negative - positive) the vision had transformed into
the colour and density of the sky of 6:30 PM, and the object is
Venus, the special marks on the tape are signs of the
falsifications on the original footage for many times, and the
published vision is not the original footage.

The second event reported from Antalya. The event which was send
to media by a group named UFO Avcisi (UFO Hunters) also
published by TVs. The children told different stories to the TVs
and they were laughing at the same time. The chairman of UFO
Hunter was shown on the trees with binoculars in his hands.
Another UFO group from Istanbul also interested with the event.
The National Observatory (TUG) is located in Antalya. There are
also foreigner scientists are residing in the observatory that
has got also 150 cm telescope. No evidence was found in the area
which UFO report claimed, in the observation executed by local
police and scientists. The National Observatory explained
scientifically it could be a meteor. Also last year a meteor was
encountered in the same area and scientists participated the
observation. Even the event were reflected as a UFO encounter by
unscientific technics and observaions of some people interested
in UFOs and UFO fans, the event was concluded as a meteor
encounter. A photo of a meteor landing to the Marmara Sea was
shot in 26th May 2002. There are not any circumstances that
cannot be explained in scientific ways and there are no
evidences of outer world lifes in both of two events.

It is found out that some scientists whose branches are related
to space, are preparing to sue such groups which do not have any
carrier and substructure. A few days ago, serious arguements
occured between the chairman of a UFO group and a scientist on
TV. The scientist accused him of deceiving people and of
liarness. After that the chairman of UFO group sued the
scientist for compensation. The court is going to take start in
following days. It seems impossible to win. There upon the
scientist declared that they will counter sue as a whole, in
terms of defeating such forgeries.
