"I said vanished because when I tried to take the sixth photo I could not find it anymore."
The photographer was using a Cannon 450D digital SLR camera with zoom lens at a hotel in the Turkish resort of Kemer, Antalya, on April 3, and has just made the report.
The witness said: "I was sitting and talking with the family. It was a shiny object with strange movements.
"We thought it was a helium filled metallic balloon. It moved North first and then came back and hovered above the sea.
"I was surprised and then took five shots with my Canon."
The sighting is causing a buzz on UFO websites. The bizarre-looking object was allegedly caught cruising over the sea, with some suggesting it looked like a flying toasted sandwich maker.
The sighting is being investigated by the world's biggest UFO investigation organisation in case it could be the historic proof alien hunters have been seeking for years.
The witness, who has not been named, reported the sighting and sent pictures to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) based in the USA, which has opened a case file.
The witness said in a brief report: "When you look at the pictures it was like a door opened at the end of the photos.
"It becomes the known UFO shape and vanished.
