Laguna – A strange cellphone picture is making rounds and creating buzz in Victoria, Laguna. The said photo includes an alleged a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ which was at least 10 times seen and caught on camera by Barangay Kagawad Nestor Jaurige, while cleaning an area in Barangay San Roque. He claims that he was surprised to see a little unidentifiable creature when he reviewed the pictures. But the residents are not at all worried. When asked about the shots, they said it may have been just manipulated by someone else.
According to the residents, after the “a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳” incident, they did not see or feel anything unusual in their Barangay.
The purported a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ photo was sent to a professional graphic artist to check the validity of the film. At first look, it’s possible to conclude that it’s simply an image manipulation that can be processed by photo editing softw̳a̳r̳e, especially with our technology today. According to the graphic artist Bryan Vallesteros, there are apps today that can be used to put an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ on a photo.
Vallesteros also added, for this snapshot to be authentic, you should check that the lighting of the creature should be consistent to the lighting of the background. At which case, in the said photo, is not. The a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ is a little dark and its shadow seems to be too dense at the bottom.
There have been r̟e̟c̟o̟r̟d̟ed cases of a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ sightings in the Philippines in the previous years. First, there’s was the 1993 Las Piñas U̳F̳O̳ incident wherein 3 high school students of Perpetual Help College of Rizal were playing basketball when one of them saw a silver-like disk floating in the air. It eventually disappeared after a few minutes.
In 2000, another incident in Las Piñas drew criticism from PAGASA Investigation Team when Tony Israel released a video footage of what he believed to be an Unidentified Flying Object. Then, in 2004, Israel’s name was dragged again by yet another phenomenal sightings when 3 of his neighbors saw “several reddish-metallic glares flying across the partly cloudy skies”
Dr. Jean Chu of United Nations nor the Philippine Weather Bureau was able to draw assumptions on this occurrences. But based on initial investigations, it seem to yield on a possible fabrication.
In 2011, 2 U̳F̳O̳s were seen in Bulacan and immediately disappeared. Then, after a few weeks, people claimed to see a couple of U̳F̳O̳’s in the middle of the night. According to them, it looks like a big basketball. One light coming from the east, the other from the west. The 2 flying objects collided until it disappeared.
Yet, another case emerged last year when a couple took a photo of their son and later found out a little creature beside their child. They said that this a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ was not there when they snap their camera
With so much news as to the truth behind these phenomenon, still mentioned cases remain unsolved.
