SANTEE, Calif. - 10News went looking for answers after a local woman snapped photos of an unidentified object flying over Santee.
Ellen Henry told 10News her camera stopped working after snapping photos at a historical barn.
Henry said she is convinced that whatever she saw hovering over Santee's Edgmoore Barn is not from this world. She did not want to show her face on camera because she said she was still spooked by what she captured.
"I was like what was it doing there," said Henry. "Why was it there? What was it doing? And I said, the next time I come here, the barn will be beamed up."
The barn sits under several flight paths. 10News contacted Gillespie Field and MCAS Miramar, but neither could offer an explanation: Some say what flew overhead is not out of the ordinary because of what has been reported around the barn.
"We think someone's come into the barn and we get up to look, and no one is there," said Elaine Murphy, president of the Santee Historical Society.
The group, which oversees the barn-turned-museum, said the property used to be part of a poor farm and hospital grounds. It also draws paranormal investigators because of reported ghost sightings.
Some residents are weighing in on the idea of a UFO hovering over a haunted barn.
"Oh yeah, I do believe we are not alone out here, that's for sure," said one resident.
10News checked with the National UFO Reporting Center and found that only one UFO sighting has been reported in San Diego during the month of May.
"Makes a good story, doesn't it?" another resident said.
