    Blurry. Probably a meteor or some sort of jet.

    My guess it was a long distant photo of a rocket launch, did they have any launches that day? I doubt its a UFO because most good cases indicate a non propellant drive. Iam almost certain its a rocket.

    Unidentified flying objects don't bother me. Just because I can't identfy it doesn't mean I need to make up stories about what it is. Unless it lands on my roof and alien beings step out, I assume it's a plane or military test, a meteor or other atmospheric phenomenon, or a doctored photo.

    Looks like it might have been Kazakhstan which launched its first communications satellite that day on a Proton rocket.

    Ooh. And one over Peru yesterday.


    I was so wrapped up in UFOs (and UFOlogists and Nostradamus) as a kid. I read everything.

    Now my sense of wonder is reduced to: Who photoshops this stuff, and why?

    Ahhh yes.. didnt think of that, you're probably right. And it does look very much like a rocket exhaust plume.

    I believe some UFO sightings to be accurate. Sometimes, too many people have seen a UFO in the air for it to be just b.s. Sure, it could be a military plane or something, but when thousands of people phone in to report one incident, and 3 people videotape something hovering in the air for like 10 seconds, it's hard for anyone to make up a reason for that.

    Oh, and I always wonder why, in this day and age with photography equipment being where it is, why photos of UFOs are always extremely blurry. :p

    The photos aren't blurry; they are in fact sharp. But the UFOs themselves have pixelated paint on them, with edges that melt into their surroundings, for protection. ;)
