Photo: Mothman Seen In Nuremberg, Germany?

yorkpress - A woman from York captured an unexplained object in her holiday snaps this month, and wants your help identifying it.

Abbey Linfoot, 22, was on a European holiday with her boyfriend when she took a photo of this street in Nuremberg.

When she looked at the photo later, she saw something she couldn’t explain, high above the buildings.

“I was taking lots of photos to show people where we’d been, but when I got back into the car I noticed there was something on this one,“ said Abbey, who is currently studying at Newcastle University “I just though, ‘What it that? That looks weird’, and couldn’t work out what it was.”

Abbey has shown the picture to friends and family, including a photography student, and nobody has yet come up with a clear explanation.

“I thought it looked like a cherub,” said Bev, Abbey’s mother.

“I also thought it looked a bit like a naked Buzz Lightyear toy, but could be a bee or an insect or something.”

Looking into the region online, Bev found there had been a fatal crash at an airshow near Nuremberg earlier this summer.

“There was a crash on September 5 where one person was killed and nearly 40 injured.

It’s really odd,” said Bev.

So what do you think - is this a trick of the light, a partly-invisible insect, a naked space ranger or something else?

NOTE: not sure what to make of this but the influx of cellphone camera image overlays, especially in Europe, has me wondering.I attempted to pull up image info but there is nothing there but the link source. Should we keep an eye on Nuremberg in the near future? It'll be interesting to see if other sightings are reported...Lon

That is definitely Photoshopped, or something of that nature.

It looks transparent, which has me thinking it's digitally altered. It also doesn't seem affected by the lighting conditions, which are quite dark.

Think it looks photoshopped too, but it still cracked me up a bit when I saw it.

looks like that mechanical owl from the Harry Hamlin, Clash of the Titans movie

This looks like a Cicada to me, inbetween the camera and the buildings, not high above them.

Is it just me or does anyone else just see a fly up close? It just looks like a normal fly to me close to the camera and abit blurry. *shrug*
