UFO Spotted Over Flooded Area in India

In yet another instance of UFOs visiting disaster areas, a disc-shaped object was photographed over flood-ravaged sections of the Assam state in northeast India. Are aliens again checking on the welfare of distressed humans? Is this evidence of a possible UFO base in India?

According to The Northeast Today, the picture of the UFO was taken on September 4th by photographer Momina Wasim, who was working at the time for the Educated Unemployed Welfare Society (EUWS). Momina was at the Mothola Tea Estate near Maijan in Dibrugarh District of Assam to cover the distribution of food and supplies to victims of recent flooding by the river Brahmaputra.

While taking photographs with her professional model Canon EOS 70D camera (settings: f/6.3, shutter speed 1/250, ISO 100, focal length 18mm), Momina captured the shiny white disc with a reddish brown rim overhead in one frame. She didn’t notice the UFO until inspecting the photographs later and believes it was moving fast and silently since neither she nor anyone else appears to have seen nor heard it.

This is the second clear UFO photograph taken in India this year. In June 2015, a young boy photographed a saucer-shaped UFO over Kanpur in the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India.

Other sightings with multiple witnesses have been reported across India in 2014, 2013 and 2007.Is it possible that there’s more to these UFO encounters than just disaster watching?

For years there have been rumors of an underground UFO base near the Kongka La Pass in the Himalayas in a remote and disputed territory between India and China. Locals report seeing triangular objects appear from openings in the ground and flying straight up until they disappear.

Area mountain guides say reports of lights in the sky are common. In 2012, Indian Army soldiers saw a 160 km-long UFO over Pangong Lake and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force reported 100 UFO sightings. Google Earth shows buildings in the pass and locals on both sides of the border claim their governments know about UFOs and the rumored base.

In 2004, an expedition of geologists claimed to have seen a 4-foot tall robot-like humanoid. The area is of interest to geologists because it’s a place where the Indian tectonic plate and the Eurasian tectonic plates meet and are actually stacked on one another, making the Earth‘s crust twice as thick. Could this make it a good hiding place for a UFO base?

What do you think? Is Momina Wasim’s photograph another sign of alien concern for humans or a possible indication that India is Earth’s UFO headquarters?
