Netherlands UFO Explained

The Netherlands UFO has had its 15 minutes, and it just won’t go away. I’ve had it, I’m done, I’m tired of looking at the stupid thing.

I can’t be the only person who has figured out what this so-called UFO really is, but I haven’t seen anyone else step forward to blurt out that the emperor isn’t wearing any clothes, so I suppose I have to get off my duff and do it myself.

You must already know the story. Connie Federer shot the alleged Netherlands UFO at Muiderslot Castle while she was trying to create some HDR images.

“We heard nothing, it was completely quiet out,” she burbled. Yeah, lady, that was your first clue.

She claimed to have only noticed the UFO later when she was reviewing her photos. Yeah, I used to hear that a lot when I was involved with a group of UFO hobbyists. About 100 percent of the time if a UFO wasn’t there when you were actually present on the scene, you had a problem with your photograph — and not a UFO.

Maybe I underestimate our Space Brothers, but I’m pretty sure that if there was an unknown flying craft zipping around a tourist spot that you’d hear a heck of a noise. Not just the engine noises but maybe some tourists screaming too.

As for the dude who said he’d put money on the Netherlands UFO being a bug, I won’t call him out by name here. But I’m curious to know if he actually has any money. I have a theory about that too.

So what was the Netherlands UFO? I can’t call out the brand, make, and model. Somebody on the scene at the castle should come forward and tell us that.

But in my humble opinion it was almost certainly an airship. Probably an advertising airship.

Step back just a little more with your camera pointed at a bright overcast cloudy sky, and there you go. The Netherlands UFO is explained.
