Is this an actual photo of a UFO hanging out over the skies in East El Paso?

Local El Pasoan Jesse F. recently shared a picture of a UFO on Facebook, saying that he wasn't aware of the flying disc until after he took a closer look at the photo he had taken of an aircraft.

Jesse's love for aeronautics is evident by all the aircraft photos uploaded on his Facebook page. But, one image stands out as a shiny disc happens to appear in the background of a photo taken with a Canon EF 75 camera with a 300mm lens.

Astounded by his photograph, he took to social media to share the incredible photo, which according to Jesse, was taken from his home in East El Paso as an aircraft was coming inbound and was about 6 to 7 thousand feet from landing.

Jesse tells me that he did not notice the UFO until later that evening after he zoomed in on the picture to see the clarity of the aircraft and noticed the spacecraft in the right-hand upper corner of the picture.

When I asked him if the image could be another aircraft, Jesse shared that he too had his doubts, but it turns out that he had checked his aircraft tracker several times to see if there were other aircraft nearby, but nothing was close by when he snapped the photo.

Believe it or not, sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs are nothing new, especially in El Paso, where sightings are reported yearly.

According to its website, The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) is the world's largest database of reported UFO sightings receives anywhere between 500 to 1,000 reports a month of unidentified flying objects globally.

While the United States government has notoriously denied the phenomenon for decades, the Department of Defense released an official report on UFOs over the summer, which it now refers to as UAP or unidentified aerial phenomena. However, while the 9-page report revealed a few videos of military pilots interacting with several sightings, it failed to conclude what they could be, keeping these flying objects unidentified and unexplained.
