The UFO Digest reports that it received a photo of the Vatican from a Polish website showing a bright orange object in its top left corner.
The recently submitted photo was taken in June last year, the site says.
"The attached enlargements indicate to me a solid object above Rome," Robert Morningstar, associate editor of UFO Digest said after viewing the enlarged and enhanced photograph submitted by Piotr Robert.
"The colour of the object is consistent with UFO colours as the UFO craft transition in energy from red to amber as they undergo power shifts," he wrote.
He says that unlike New York and other major cities, Rome has little light that could have reflected "so brightly from such an apparently high flying object."
"The equalised enlargement (the lower photo) shows the body of the craft as a black silhouette", he added.
"All of us agree that this is a pretty good picture and considering its subject matter, we decided to add it as the final page of Chris Barbato's "The Omega Secret", Morningstar said.
In his article "The Omega Secret", Italian "independent UFO researcher" Barbato claims that a US bishop, the late Los Angeles Bishop, later Cardinal James Francis McIntyre, reported to Pope Pius XII on an alleged secret meeting with aliens.
UFO Digest's Morningstar concluded: "It is most appropriate!"
