AMAZING USO ENCOUNTER IN TURKEY: THE
ALLEGED UNDERWATER UFO PHOTOGRAPH
USOs or Unidentified Submarine Objects have long been
observed in Turkish waters. That is, such crafts are often reported to enter,
leave, float or travel under the water of seas, lakes and rivers of Turkey.
In this respect, the Aegean Sea, the Marmara Sea and the Mediterranean Sea
are very active water regions. Below we would get into some further details
of the most interesting USO case of all Turkish UFO literature. Here it is.
of 1990, a strange underwater UFO was seen beneath the waters of the Aegean
Sea which lies between Turkey and Greece. What makes this USO encounter so
special is that it includes a colored picture of an alleged Unidentified
Submersible Object as a physical evidence.
Furthermore, we should
add that the eye-witness and the USO are both under the water.
Naturally, there are some amazing photographs, motion pictures and
video-clips of USOs showing that these mysterious objects are diving into,
emerging from, sailing or cruising under the water. However, there was no
single evidential picture indicating that the alleged submarine UFO and the
photographer were both beneath the sea at some fathoms. As far as we know,
this alleged USO photo is therefore the first example of its kind.
spectacular USO case occurred at 14:00 (2 pm.), on 15th of August, 1990. Its exact place was at
57 meters deep of Saros Bay or just around Turkish
inland waters of the Aegean Sea. One can easily state that Mr. Erol Erkmen is a very reliable
and sincere person who has reported this mysterious underwater object. Mr. Erkmen was engaging in a discovery-dive for an old sunken
ship together with his friend, named as Mr. Kemal
whose surname has been kept as secret, when he suddenly located the alleged
USO there. Mr. Erol Erkmen
said that he began to feel very strangely as if they were observed by
something. Then he looked ahead and saw a greenish light inside the water.
However, this mysterious object disappeared so soon. After a while, Mr. Erkmen again located the green object at his left-hand
side. Consequently, he thought that the USO might have been maneuvering
around them. He observed it for nearly 3 minutes. Then he decided to take a
picture of this strange light using an older underwater Kodak camera.
Immediately he did what he had thought. As soon as Mr. Erkmen
took a snap-shot of that USO, its light went out. However, they had to come
out of the water, since their oxygen was just about to die out. Mr. Erol Erkmen said that when he
studied the negative very carefully, he saw nothing. On the other hand, when
he looked up the printed photochrome, he located a
mysterious greenish light in the picture. For his curiosity, he made this
photograph enlarged for 300 times. He then became too embarrassed by seeing
that there was a disc-shaped object with some greenish light in the alleged
If so, what was that? Was it a
conventional submarine or a secret man-made vehicle? Was it a kind of phosphorescent
underwater organism? Or was it an advanced submersible craft of alien
beings? Who knows? Every alternative view has its own pros and cons.
