Sighting Turns Out To Be Sailboat Lights
Published: 1:20 AM 3/9/2013

Les Miserables star thought he'd caught extra-terrestrial activity. Well, this is awkward... An expert has claimed that Russell Crowe's alleged UFO sighting was nothing more than lights from a sailboat.

The actor had left his camera taking constant photos of the view from his office window in the hope of seeing fruit bats, and was apparently astonished to later see what appeared to be a UFO in the sky.

However, there is in fact a harbour between the camera and the gardens that are visible in the background; and Phil Poling from ParaBreakdown now says that a small sailboat with a high mast must have passed.

Due to the slow shutter speed, it's barely recognisable - and Russell's theory was also helped by the fact that, due to his choice of lense, the gardens look a lot closer than they in fact were; making the lights from the boat even harder to identify.

Russell has appeared to challenge the new theory, writing on Twitter: "re UFO? It can't be a yacht, would have to be travelling 80kmph (50mph) to cover that distance in 4.5 seconds (sic)."

He has also insisted that his original photo was not manipulated.
