Wednesday, 8.50am: A Journal reader has tried to pass off a famous UFO picture as a genuine sighting over Grantham.Wayne Mills brought in this picture of what he said was a UFO hovering over Old Somerby last weekend.
He told us: "It was just hovering there.
"It was like a fireball but it was moving up and down.
"It looked pretty small but the light coming from it was huge.
"It was there for a few seconds and then when it went, I went as well."
However the picture is a well-known 'UFO sighting' taken by Mexican man Carlos Diaz on December 21, 1994 while taking photos of the eruption of Mt.Popocatepetl in Puebla, Mexico.
The picture has been examined worldwide by many photographic experts and published in numerous magazines, newspapers, and books.
It shows a glowing, yellowish, disc shaped object with a red hue toward the top and windows or portholes.
Diaz, a highly controversial figure in Ufology alleges to have been contacted by aliens directly.
He is considered a charlatan by many Ufologists.
