Taken by Wang Shi-lin in 1961 in Taitung City, This is the First Known Photograph of a UFO in Taiwan

According to Ho, there have been 15 recorded sightings where photographic evidence suggests that extraterrestrial objects have traversed the skies above Taiwan.

The earliest of these pictures were taken in Taitung City (台東市) in 1961.

Wang Shi-lin (王石麟) was out walking one day when an object on the horizon caught his eye. There is very little detail in the black and white photo, which appears to show a bright flat object hovering above the ground. Ho is convinced the photo is of a UFO.

Neioh of the Pleiades via Kabamur says “This is a small Pleiadian Craft which has been cloaked and stationary for a discussion within. The area that looks to be open is completely air tight and sealed.”

“We do this for viewing and in one instant we can close the area. There are seats around the entire craft as well as on the area viewed on the bottom. This is a leisurely trip of occupants from Merope.”

Other photographic “evidence” ranges from the patently absurd to the almost believable.

One of the most striking UFO shots was taken at an interchange on the Sun Yat-sen freeway. Li Chun-hsiung (李俊宏) captured a fireball hurtling through the sky on Dec. 8, 1999, while caught in a traffic jam at the Yangmei interchange (楊梅交流道).

Ho studied this particular case in some depth. After interviewing several eyewitnesses, the organization firmly believes the image to be the glow of the afterburner belonging to an alien spaceship leaving the Earth’s atmosphere.
