A woman taking pictures of the famed Muiderslot Castle in the Netherlands last month accidentally captured something much more interesting in one of her shots — what appears to be a UFO.
Corrine Federer, 43, of Amsterdam, and her mother were visiting the medieval castle May 25 when Federer used her High Dynamic Range camera to snap a photo of the fortress.

"In order to create HDR images, you take three or more exposures — this one happened to be five — and you shoot them all at the same time, because you then overlap the images and it gives you the full spectrum of light, which your camera can't capture but your eyes can,"
Federer told The Huffington Post.
When reviewing the photos she took, Federer noticed an unusual object in the sky.
"It was a tubular-shaped object that had an S-shaped fin on it," she said. "If it had been any type of missile, it would've had multiple fins, but facing the same direction. We heard nothing, it was completely quiet out. The more I flipped through the frames, it was kind of creepy."
The shutter speed on the UFO photo was 1/250th of a second, Federer said, which means whatever it was had to be traveling very, very fast.
A former FBI special agent who now hosts the SyFy Channel's "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files" said the image appears to be authentic.
"Having reviewed the raw files, there's no overt indication that the photos have been manipulated with post-editing software," he said in an email to HuffPo.
Though there's no way to definitively determine whether the object in Federer's picture is indeed a UFO, she believes it could be.

"When I look at the amazing photography which captures the night sky in long exposures, and you can see how many stars are out there, I think there's absolutely no way that we're alone," she said. "So I don't find it unreasonable to believe that there's another habitable planet somewhere that has started exploring space."
