The above image highlights the good and the bad of the current era of ufology. For a while, a groundbreaking photograph that possibly showed a Roswell alien corpse was rumored to exist. The owners of the slide in question waited until earlier this month for their big reveal.
Underwhelmingly, the Kodachrome slides were no smoking gun after all and turned out to be quite a bust. When screenshots of the slides were inadvertently leaked through a promotional video, scrutiny abounded.
When the reveal finally happened all hopes of an authentic 1940's image of a deceased alien turned out to simply be a picture of a mummified child. A blurred placard next to the creepy looking being became unblurred, proving it was a mummy. The picture was simply taken in a museum.
The bad in this situation is that it is easy for anyone to create a buzz out of literally nothing. An old slide existed of what might look like is the body of an extraterrestrial. Big hype can be built on a completely false premise.
The good that came out of this situation is how much scrutiny claims like this must face. Thousands of different sets of eyes can look at the same image and question it from a thousand different ways. False claims can quickly be squashed.
The following 10 UFO images and videos are open to the same scrutiny. Did May of 2015 yield some authentic UFO stories or are they to be taken with as much credibility of this 'alien' corpse?
10. Blue Object Hovers Above South Hollandhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?t=22&v=57gQl9UMERo
The dating is a little tricky on this blue UFO. The time stamp on the original video says it was filmed in November of 2014 but Muldersworld.com reported that it was filmed on April 11th.
Regardless, this sighting from the Netherlands didn't really break into the English speaking world until late April/early May, so it counts for this list.
Dick Smits lives in the South Holland city of Maassluis, which is south of The Hague. He was filming the nearby canal when he noticed a peculiar blue object hovering in the sky.
Local Rotterdam television station RTV Rijnmond TV interviewed Smits about the ordeal and found little supplementary info from the man. No info was gathered about when the object disappeared.
Too bad there isn't much info to go with this because the blue UFO is fascinating in the video.
