David C. Knight. Polaroid photograph.

Possible hoax. Jagged line of discontinuity running across the center of the photo, through the cloud field, which suggest there are actually two separate photos joined together and rephotographed to make one. - APRO consultant Dr. B Roy Frieden, Professor of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona.

Witness sketch

The photo came to light in the 1980s, thanks to one of the crewmen who contacted local Ufologist Ricardo Vilchez. In 1985, a 2nd generation negative got in the hands of Dr. Jacque Vallee, who along with Dr. Richard Haines conducted an analysis which was published in JSE ("Photo Analyses of an Aerial Disc Over Costa Rica" (.PDF) and New Evidence (.PDF)).

Corsica, France, 1971. At 4:00pm on February 12, a family who had recently purchased a new home in the northern part of the French island of Corsica, were preparing their camera to take a picture of the new house when one of the party noticed a glint in the sky and looked up. They all looked up to see a shiny, metallic object glinting brilliantly where it caught the sun's rays in the clear blue sky. The object was disc-shaped and had a low-profile curved dome on the top, with some kind of oval-shaped or rounded-rectangular black marks or openings around its sides.

From witness illustration.

French Gendarmerie UFO Files include a photo of a classic flat-bottomed disk (typical eye-witness descriptions: "upside-down saucer", "silver dome", "chrome hubcap" or even as "flying shields" in ancient times). (bigger photo)

Story: The witness was sitting on the passenger's seat, taking landscape photographs under the rain when suddenly this luminous disk appeared. The photograph is from the UFO files of the French Gendarmerie Nationale.

Notice the strange cone-shaped effect under the disk. This might be the luminous "ion cone" effect, often reported under disk-shaped UFOs. When viewed from a distance at night/twilight, people might describe diskoid UFOs as a "luminous icecream-cone" or "flash-light pointing downwards" shape. One such incident was the Portage County 17-Apr-1966 case, when Ohio cops chased a UFO for over an hour, into Pennsylvania
