There is a tiny percentage of UFO cases that have no rational explanation. These UFOs could actually be of extraterrestrial origin, and some of the most interesting evidence comes in the form of old photos that were taken before the age of drones and Photoshop – when there really shouldn't have been anything up there flying around besides early planes, and when complex photo manipulation was next to impossible.
Here are some of the most compelling old UFO pics. Real or not, they're still fascinating documents from a cosmic blip in time on the planet Earth, somewhere in the Milky Way galaxy…
1The Oldest UFO Photo Ever - Mt. Washington, New Hampshire 1870
One of the oldest and best UFO sightings on record (Photo Source)
It is simultaneously the oldest and one of the best UFO sightings on record. Remember, there were no planes in the sky in 1870 and no digital manipulation.
In 2002, this image was purchased on Ebay for $385.00 by Samuel M. Sherman, president of Independent-International Pictures Corp. (Source)

Wherever this is, the object up and to the right of the horse-drawn transport looks to be a flying object in the sky at a time when biplanes were rare and monoplanes didn't quite exist yet. (Source)

Object that preceded a “terrible thunderous bellow” (Photo Source)
Taken at the Ward sawmill. The man in the picture (featured in the above link), who died a few years later, said there was a “terrible thunderous bellow” and then a large object rose up in the near distance and flew off. (Source)
5Vancouver City Hall UFO - 1937
Here's the full description:
"The two were suddenly astounded to see a 'bright bright blue light' drop straight down from the sky. It became larger as it did so and they were able to observe the source of the light as an object that Leonard described as 'two saucers' open ends facing each other, glowing bright blue. The object then moved 'dead straight' horizontally across the sky. When it just appeared to clear the flagpole on the roof of the City Hall it came to an almost dead stop and Leonard clicked the shutter on the camera. The object then shot straight back up into the sky. 'They never seen anything fly so fast!' This scared them to death and they ran from the scene. The object made no sound."
It's important to note that this photo has no negative in existence and the UFO could very well be a “watermark defect that appeared during the development of the print.” (Source | Photo)

But have you ever watched the Fox TV Series, Fringe? Maybe someone is observing our reactions to these kinds of spectacles, studying us in some kind of experiment....you never know.
It's also worth pointing out that although the object took direct hits from ballistics, it never fell from the sky. (Source)
