UFO hovers above Bucharest Parliament in February 2013.
In a shot eerily similar to a scene from the blockbuster film Independence Day, an unidentified flying object hovers over the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest. The man who took the photograph of the flying saucer in Romania’s capital has spoken of his shock at his brief encounter. Cosmin Garlesteanu described getting a strange feeling while taking a picture of the imposing government building, and was stunned when he looked back at his snap to see a strange green and blue light beaming down on it. ‘I saw it when I viewed my picture. I can’t explain it. I showed the picture to my friend and he said it looked like a scene from Independence Day. It was very unexpected. ‘It’s a strange light with a form I can’t really describe, it looks like a UFO. I always think miracles can happen.’
