Only problem here is you are zooming in on a compressed jpg so you're going to get lots of compression artifacts. If the original image was zoomed in on, cropped and posted we'd have a better chance at identification.

Right on Luke! Thank you very much. Do you think it could be a bug?

My first thought after looking at the cropped enhancement was stealth fighter...

That was not a cropped enhancement but rather a degraded image from a compressed jpg that was zoomed in on!

True, working with the original image would definitely give us better results. I worked with what I had available, but I'd be willing to do the same with the original too. In any case, it's an interesting image once you zoom in.

Sorry, English isn't my first language... bug as in an insect, or a camera mistake, or... I dunno, these are the only meanings of bug (that I know) that could be applied here. And I don't think it could be either of those, to be honest. It's something that is there, it's possible to see air or something coming from it in the zoomed picture, and it's too big to be an insect. Also, it doesn't resemble a bird at all.

For what is worth, it looks like a small military jet to me.

I'm saying "Bug" as in insect. And yes the original file from a 12.1 megapixel camera would yield far better results, far better than a compressed 640x480 jpg.

Thanks for your effort. I'm still going with insect on this one. I have hundreds of them in my images over the years especially in the summer early fall months.

Well it makes a difference if you're speaking from
experience I'll say that. All I'm say'n is I don't know
what it is.

LukeDAP did, in fact, crop and alter the OP's posted pic!

Please forgive me for making such an egregious error in terminology...

Technically from your perspective then, it's a UFO

No issues from me
I just wanted to point out that it wasn't enhanced using the method LukeDAP used.

What's more curious to me is how your Sony camera sensed the under hang and gutter were going to be underexposed and fired the flash to compensate.

Okay, so I zoomed in on Photoshop, then used the sharpen tool and finally painted it. It has a | shape and, interestingly enough, there's sort of a... aura, I guess, around it. Kinda like a car on a hot day, you know, you can see the heat waves. Maybe it's the air coming from it or something.

Here:



EDIT: sorry, I forgot to post the shapened, zoomed in pic without the colours:



No what you see is jpeg artifacts !

It's a 12mp camera here is the exif data.

Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) [0x829A] = 1/640 second ===> 0.00156 second
Lens F-Number / F-Stop [0x829D] = 43/10 ===> ƒ/4.3
Exposure Program [0x8822] = normal program (2)
ISO Speed Ratings [0x8827] = 200
EXIF Version [0x9000] = 0221
Original Date/Time [0x9003] = 2014:08:20 06:42:21
Digitization Date/Time [0x9004] = 2014:08:20 06:42:21
Components Configuration [0x9101] = 0x01,0x02,0x03,0x00 / YCbCr
Compressed Bits per Pixel [0x9102] = 4/1 ===> 4
Exposure Bias (EV) [0x9204] = 0/10 ===> 0
Max Aperture Value (APEX) [0x9205] = 55/16 ===> 3.44
Max Aperture = ƒ/3.29
Metering Mode [0x9207] = pattern / multi-segment (5)
Light Source / White Balance [0x9208] = unknown (0)
Flash [0x9209] = Flash fired, auto mode, return light detected
Focal Length [0x920A] = 520/100 mm ===> 5.2 mm

Optical zoom wasn't used most likely a bird in the field of view, oh is your flash set to always fire!

I'm no expert, but I would say it is some dust stuck on the lens. Where is the sun located in relation to the photograph? Is it behind the house? Directly above you? Behind you? In the clouds? Were you standing in the shade of a cloud? Was there cars close by or was this your backyard?
details bud... I want to believe that is a ufo before some skeptic gets here.

It's about three in the afternoon the house is west and the
clear blue is east. The anomaly is east in the pic as well. So
that puts the sun back beyond the house. I was taking pics
rapidly so if something were on the lens it would be in more
than one pic I would think. And would be a big splotch in the
picture.

Frontyard facing south.

Is there some back story that leads you to believe it isn't something mundane? Were you watching it move erratically or something else? I feel like I am missing something.

Also, it is blurry because your house is in focus and it (the object) is farther (or much closer and smaller) away. Since it is in the sky it is probably moving as well.

Ahh, this helps. This will create some distance perspective. In order for it to be visible in only one frame of a rapid-fire, it has to be one of two things.

A. Really small and close (bug) moving normal bug speed

B. If it is larger, it would have to be moving super fast to get out of the frame from that far away. In this case, it would be a blurry streak. There really isn't a case where it can be large and moving fast enough to get out of the next frame without streaking significantly.

This points heavily to that is must be small, fairly close and normal speed (no streak, just blur)
