This unidentified object was sighted in Sakon Nakhon on Christmas Day.

On December 25, Sawang Dindaeng School in Sakon Nakhon organised a variety of outdoor activities to celebrate its Sports Day. One of the participants, Thidarat Boonlee, decided to take a photo to commemorate the occasion.

At 2pm, she used her cellphone to take a snapshot of her friends, who were seated on the grandstand opposite.

In addition to her friends, the high-schooler found that she had snapped a photo of a flying saucer.

Incredulous about her find, Thidarat attempted to take a second photo of the coconut tree behind which the UFO had appeared, but the saucer failed to make a second appearance.

Weerayos Yuttarin, an English teacher at the school, said that Thidarat was a well-behaved student who was unlikely to fabricate the story.

“I heard many teachers talking about their UFO experience on the same day, but I did not believe since there was no concrete evidence,” said Weerayos.

Weerayos added that behind the row of coconut trees were townhouses that should not have a height of more than three stories.

Curiously, today’s alien visitors to earth appear to have reverted to vintage spacecraft: the UFO looks uncannily like the flying saucer in the famous Adamski photograph taken in California in the 1950s – later revealed to be a truck hubcap.
