Earlier this week, Worcester Magazine was conducting an interview and photo shoot at St. Leo’s Cemetery in Leominster, Massachusetts with author and Travel Channel host Ronny Le Blanc of (Expedition Bigfoot, Paranormal Caught on Camera) when the photographer, Christine Peterson, captured something unexplained in one of the photos...a UFO.

Sometimes if we are looking - we can get a glimpse of what is out there. The things that people say they see in the sky, deep in the water or in the woods. These things that are here one minute and gone the next.

Are these people who see these things like UFOs, Bigfoot or orbs the lucky ones or are they cursed? Maybe they are just paying more attention?

Earlier this week, Worcester Magazine was conducting an interview and photo shoot at St. Leo’s Cemetery in Leominster, Massachusetts with author and Travel Channel host Ronny Le Blanc of (Expedition Bigfoot, Paranormal Caught on Camera) when the photographer, Christine Peterson, captured something unexplained in one of the photos...a UFO.

“All 3 images were literally taken at 2:34 with only seconds in between. If it was a bird it would be seen in all the photos. An 80th of a second could perhaps freeze a person walking but definitely not running...I am seriously puzzled.”

With Halloween right around the corner, Worcester Magazine, owned by Telegram & Gazette, was brought to St. Leo’s Cemetery where Monsterland: Encounters with UFOs, Bigfoot and Orange Orbs author Ronny Le Blanc was detailing an incredible story of a flying saucer shaped UFO that was seen here - a close encounter in central Massachusetts for an upcoming article.

A flying saucer was seen hovering over St. Leo’s Cemetery in the early morning summer hours in 1967. The craft caused a Leominster resident to be immobilized by the craft when the man and his wife got too close, pulling their car up to the strange sight. The man exited the vehicle and began pointing at the craft when he suddenly had his arm slammed back against the roof of the car, as if it had become magnetized. He couldn’t move. It eventually rose up into the sky when he then regained control of his body.

Shortly thereafter, confused and terrified, the police were called as the couple filed a report. The veteran police officer who took the statement believed they were telling the truth as he had known the couple for years. The incident was deemed a real event. The encounter has been documented in several books over the years.

As we were setting up for the shoot and finding a position within the cemetery, Christine asked where I thought the UFO was positioned back in 1967. She pointed to the right side of the cemetery.

I explained to her my unknown conviction of where this craft might have been seen. I shifted my position so that I was facing the other side of the cemetery.

“For whatever reason, I feel that the UFO was spotted hovering over here on the left side of the cemetery, closer to the road. The couple stated that they saw a strange fog and lights hovering over the cemetery as they were passing by, so it had to be visible from the roadway. I can’t prove this. It’s just a gut feeling.”

Once we were in position to start shooting, Christine began taking photos using an infrared lens as Telegram & Gazette / Worcester Magazine reporter Craig Semon began to ask me questions about the incident.

3rd Image Below - NO UFO

(Reviewing the three images taken less than a second from one another, you can see the time stamp for each photo, courtesy of Christine, as well as the UFO suddenly appearing in one image (2nd) and gone in the next.)

Christine after reviewing the photos days later noticed the anomaly in one of the images. Between a series of 3 shots - a mere fraction of a second apart - a UFO like object appears in the upper right hand corner of the image.

It looks like the classic flying saucer shape. It is flat - parallel with the horizon. It looks to be either hovering above the tree line or flying into frame at an incredible rate of speed. If it is hovering above the trees - it is large. It matches the background of the image so it does look as if it is the same distance as the trees.

There was no air traffic at the time of the shoot. We didn't hear anything unusual at the time nor did we see anything unidentified. Aside from crows going crazy - it was a gray day and no sunlight to cause any type of lens flare or artifact.

“The focus on this image is on the statue at the left, leaving the background soft, trying to create an ethereal feel for the story.” - Christine Peterson

What is creepy is the fact that this UFO, well, it is nowhere to be seen in the image before or after. What’s even more incredible is that the photos were taken in Infrared.

What is Infrared?

Infrared radiation (IR), or infrared light, is a type of radiant energy that's invisible to human eyes but that we can feel as heat.

All objects in the universe emit some level of IR radiation, but two of the most obvious sources are the sun and fire. Christine was using an infrared lens which allows her camera to pick up on this invisible well as something that a normal camera wouldn’t invisible UFO.

Are UFOs, Unidentified Flying Objects real? Does this mean that they are from Outer Space? The Pentagon recently released information in 2017 and again this year that they had a secret UFO program. They also admitted that they state UFOs do indeed exist and they require further research. Anything that could be a threat to our National Security should be researched.

But they don’t know, we don’t know...who is behind the wheel. Invisible to the pilot’s naked eyes...these craft have been seen over some of the most sensitive nuclear facilities as well as military operations. These “things” are not visible sometimes. But now our military’s equipment systems, radar, and sensors on these fighter jets are connecting and speaking to each other...and they are picking up objects flying alongside our planes, evading our pursuits and disappearing in mid-air.

Do you think we can see...everything? Let’s take this next fact and let it marinate for a bit.

The ENTIRE rainbow of radiation observable to the human eye only makes up a tiny portion of the electromagnetic spectrum – about 0.0035 percent! This range of wavelengths is known as visible light. This is what is known as the visible spectrum, the only light we can see without a little help from technology.

So, what else is going on around us that we can’t see? That’s what I am trying to find out.

If these UFOs do exist, and I believe they do...and if they are here among us...where are they hiding? Maybe they are right in front of us, invisible. Only showing themselves when they want or when we have the means to see behind the veil.

2020 has been a doozy. I have a strange feeling 2021 is going to be the year that shocked humanity. Get your popcorn ready.
