Case Overview:
This case developed over the Sea of Marmara located near Istanbul between the years of 2007, 2008, and 2009 and is ongoing. The case made big news in Turkey and in other countries as well. It also started a great debate between the official members of the Turkish scientific community The footage was taken by a security guard at the "Yeni Kent Compound" which is on the coast of Turkey. One singularity of this case was that the images were made with a camera that had an adaptor for close ups of 200X optical, achieving a great amount of detail of the objects. During this period several minutes of close range video were taken of metallic ufos floating or changing while in flight over the sea coast of Marmara. They appeared as and outline of glowing orange ovals as well as the classic disc shape. Many special effects and imaging experts have tried to debunk the footage including: Prof. José Atenas, an expert in graphics and video, with more than 30 years of experience on television, Prof. phD. Zeki EKER Director National Council For The Study Of Science And Technology and National Observatory. Mario Valdes from Santiago Chile also spent a great amount of time studying each frame. Other analysis was done by video specialists, image edition and special effect companies from Japan, Russia and Turkey, all ending up with the same conclusions. They could not find evidence of a hoax and all of them determined that what is being filmed was not a product of a balloon, prop, model, or special effects.

Short Video Explanation

Sirius UFO Space Sciences Research Center:
At first, the videos were analyzed and made public by the SIRIUS UFO organization, directed by the researcher Haktan Akdogan. Sirius UFO Space Science Research Center firstly, spoke with all the witnesses separately then did the detailed analysis of the full footage of 2 hours 30 mn. long with the participation of the members of a science board. They enlarged the video images, did all the detailed analysis, checked their pixels, and went through the all footage frame by frame. After doing all the necessary analysis which went on for several weeks. SIRIUS released the following statement:

Haktan Akdagan, SIRIUS Space Research: "the objects sighted in the aforementioned footage that have a structure that is mad e of specific material are definitely not made up by any kind of computer animation nor are they any form of special effects used for simulation in a studio or for a video effect therefore in conclusion it was decided that the sightings were neither a mock up or hoax. And it is concluded that these objects in the sightings that have physical and material structures do not belong in any category such as; planes, helicopters, meteors, Venus, Mars, satellites, fire balls, Chinese lantern, fire balls, weather balloons, natural or atmospheric phenomenon. etc. and but rather fall into the category of UFO’s. The incident went on several times intermittently before the very eyes of the residents of "Yeni Kent Compound", filmed by a night guard named Yalcin Yalman. The detailed analysis of a certain portion of these extraordinary videos showed that three different objects were captured at the same time."

Camera Specifications
The camera was based on the NTSC System with a diaphragm set at the maximum of 1.8. Canon DM-GRI-A. It's a 3CCD 20x optic 100x with a tele-converter mounted on a 58mm adapter. Tele-objective is a Sony brand vci hgd 1758 model lens, x 1.7

The National Council For The Study Of Science And Technology (sponsored by the government) and National Observatory (TUG) got interested in analyzing the original footage, with the intention of determining that the video was nothing more than a hoax, gambling on the idea of scale models or toys, or CGI. The original tape was handed to the TUBITAK representatives on live TV in their own headquarters. Once the analysis concluded, they released a report issued in the form of a press release that was covered widely in Turkey however barely mentioned in the western news media. :

The Scientific and Technological Council of Turkey Website (english)

Prof. PHD Zeki Eker "The objects observed on the images have a structure made of a specific material and definitely itís no any kind of CGI animation or in any means a type of special effects used for simulation in a studio or for video effects. So the conclusion of this report is that the observations are not a model, maquette or a fraud". At the last part of the report, it’s concluded that the objects observed have a physical structure and are made of materials that do not belong to any category (airplanes, helicopters, meteors, Venus, Mars, Satellites, artificial lights, Chinese lanterns, etc.) and that it mostly fits in the category of UFO’s (Unidentified Flying Objects and of unknown origin)."

Turkey's UFO history started 5000 years ago with Flying Gods when it was called GokTurks which means "the people who come from the sky". There are underground cities all over the country. The most important ones are located in Cappadocia. They reach more than 20 stories underground. In today's Turkey, apparently those responsible for piloting these craft are still around. In 2007 a nightguard captured the first in a series of close range videos and included supporting witnesses. During 2008 the metallic ufo seen in the video footage was observed by a crowd of witnesses and captured for several minutes on camera by a night watchman Yalman Yalcin. Again the raw data videos have been According to witnesses a rough guess of altitutde was between 150 to 200 ft. The object remained stationary but occasionally moved back and forth. Researchers believe that the object you see in the Turkey video is the same objects the residents observed. Nobody who has come forward saw any evidence that Yalman Yalcin used a staged prop, model, or a hoax, The camera was hooked up to a screen so many watched the ufo live on a television monitor. Sightings continued over the same location in 2009. More people were watching the skies, In 2009 between May and June, the simliar shaped metallic ufos were seen again over the Sea. A 33 minute segment of the video taken between 4:59 a.m.and at 5:32 a.m., shows the object changing in appearance as it becomes lighter out due to the sunrise.

Roger Leir on a Coast to Coast:
"it was two years in a row. I was there both times looking through the viewfinder of the camera. Now the camera was mounted on sticks and it had a 200 mil lens and an electronic doubler so we were able to push very very close on the craft. Now just as a background the craft was lit by a moon that was very very bright in the sky and so that illuminated the exterior portion of the craft" "it was sent in an proven that it was not a hoax and what was being seen was reality"
