Three images taken by Richard Emblin, editor-in-chief of The City Paper, based in Colombia, were revealed on the newspaper’s website.

It caused an internet frenzy with many UFO websites sharing the images as possible proof of alien visitations.

They included YouTube channel Secureteam10, which produced a video about the images.

Tyler Glockner, who narrates the channel said: “A shape-shifting UFO has been caught on camera by a newspaper editor in Chile. That doesn’t sound like balloons to me.”

However, Express.co.uk can reveal that the photojournalist’s snaps were likely just a child’s gold birthday balloon in the shape of the number eight.

Mr Emblin, who is also a pilot and has had articles published in TIME, Der Spiegel, and The New York Times, had ruled out the ‘UFO’ being any form of plane, drone or hot air balloon flight.

He said at the time: “I take my journalistic ethics very seriously.

“I do not manipulate my images. On Sunday, April 12 (2015), I stepped out onto my balcony, which faces East, and is located in the Rosales neighbourhood of Bogotá.”

Mr Emblin added as a “frustrated commercial airline pilot” he knew the sighting was not an earthly aircraft.

He wrote: “I know my planes. Up close and at great distances. I know how to distinguish the sound of an Airbus A 340 to a Boeing 777. I have studied flight maps, flight routes and flightaware. I understand these machines. I admire them. There was no fuselage, no winglets, no sound. This was no plane.

“The black dot began to unravel itself. It stopped under the melancholic canopy of cloud and darted south, where it shifted on its side. 

“The spot was not visible on the screen of my iPhone. I tried it look for it again with my eyes, but the black object had shifted in the sky above my building. I though it might head towards the airport, so I grabbed my Nikon 300s and tried to remember where I keep a 500 mm lens…

“…and pointed my lens towards the other side of Bogotá. The object was not one, but two it seemed.

“It was very evident to me that this was a UFO. No drone. No Sunday morning balloon flight over a capital in which only official helicopters (police and army) can patrol.

“I could discern that the object shifted its shape. Could rise and fall quickly, and zip from one end of the city in a matter of seconds.

“The black dot seemed to have rings. It then tilted, shifted to one side, and disappeared.”

One reader of his article posted: “Amazing! Why would this man risk his reputation over a ufo article if he didn’t feel what he was seeing was real and worth reporting? I for one believe him.”

However, Express.co.uk has seen the “UFO” looks remarkably similar to a gold helium-filled party balloon in the number eight, which are available online.

Express.co.uk sent the case to UFO debunker Scott Brando, who runs website Ufoofinterest.org.

He agreed and said many suspected UFOs had turned out to be helium balloons of various shapes and sizes.

He said: “It is an eight-shaped mylar balloon. 

“Mylar balloons reflecting sun light are one of the main UFO misrepresentations, still fooling many people who think they are so-called EBANIs.”

EBANIs are Entidad Biological Anomalous No Identificada or Unidentified Anomalous Biological Entities, said by some to be living alien UFOs.

Posters on YouTube agreed it was a balloon:

One said: “Ever seen a balloon they sell at the graduation/party store with different numbers and letters? This is one of them! Post something credible.”

Another said: “Aww some poor little eight-year-old lost his birthday balloon.”

A third said: “It’s a number ‘eight’ mylar balloon, you can buy silver and gold ones at any party shop. Some kid isn’t going to be happy!”

Express.co.uk contacted Mr Emblin via the newspaper website and Twitter and awaits a response.
