Here is a photo I took in Port Vila, Vanuatu on August 26, 2004. I was staying at the Le Meridian Resort, and looking at the photo - to the right out
of frame is the ocean, and to the left is inland on the island of Efate. On the 26th, I took a few hours to walk around the resort and surrounding
property to get some 'touristy' shots, and this particular photo was taken near the boundary of the property looking over the lagoon. The kids in
the photo had just come from the nearby jungle into the clearing where I was, and they didn't seem to notice anything out of the ordinary.
I didn't actually notice the object when I took the pic, I only saw it after I got home and went through my photos. The object appears on the upper
left near the top of the frame. When zoomed in, it seems quite symmetrical. (There is also an anomaly on the center of the photo just above the trees,
however that could easily be a bird given its height & lack of symmetry). Here's the full-res photo (it's 2.86MB):
Anyway, I do quite a bit of travel photography and this is the first and only time I've captured anything like this. The object only appears in this
photo and in none of the others taken before or after. I didn't hear any planes or helicopters at the time. It wasn't windy that day so it coudn't
be something blown from a tree. And if you look at the kids below, none of them look like they've thrown anything up in the air.
I was debating on whether I should bother posting it on ATS as it's so far away; I've seen better examples (and I've also seen worse). Anyway, I
wanted to give you something more than just a little gray oval in the sky, so here's an analysis of the object. Feel free to do your own analysis,
leave a comment, or ask anything.
