2 bright white oval lights over a Jerusalem hillside noticed in photograph taken at around 1:00 a.m. of Oct. 15, 2012

Witness is from Manila, Philippines, and was traveling with a religious pilgrimage group to the Holy Land. Could not fall asleep on the evening of Oct. 14, 2012 at the Leonardo Plaza Hotel, Tiberias, Jerusalem.

At around the time between 1:00 and 2:00 a.m. of Oct. 15, 2012, witness stepped out onto the balcony of hotel room to admire the city lights below and on the distant hillside. It was a moonless night. Witness decided to take a photo of the city lights and used her iPad to take the shot. UFO was not "noticed" with the naked eye. Rather, it was noticed when witness was already back in Manila while examining the photographs taken during the trip. See enclosed photograph.

((NUFORC Note: Photo shows two white lights. We are unable to identify them, but they are not distinct, unambiguous images. PD))
