I've been taking pics of the chemtrails and various helicopters/planes that like buzzing the area and when I went to review the pictures I saw this disc/triangle shape thing in the sky on one of them. I can't tell what it is, but it is very hi res, shot with a fast shutter, so it's relatively un-blurred.





Could be nothing, either way thought it would be fun to post.

Is the first photo a crop from the original?

Can you post the original (in case this is not the original)?

Any chance that it's just a Cicada...?

Depends on where you live, of course.

Could be what that thing is or a huge locust.

from the pic you can tell slightly it looks like it hair legs of some sort indicating it to be a huge bug.

I had a minute or two of spare time.. and as much as I really dislike working with a low-resolution 'copy' of a photo, I played with this a bit. And probably the fact that we here in California are getting what might be the start of a new "wave" of sightings, I used some filtering on the photo provided by the original poster.

Please keep in mind that any type of filtering especially on a low resolution photo (and not to mention the compression of pixels on a jpeg itself), can create anomalies and other artifacts that are not in the original. Hence my aversion to use them... but I did it anyway as there appears (at least to me) to have been an appendage extending away from the 'glob' in the photo.. After filtering though, the photo looked differently than I had originally thought it might look like. Please keep that in mind any of you "filtering enthusiast" that whatever you do with filters, it can and might change, manipulate, or corrupt the visual aspect of the original subject matter..

So.. with that in mind.. heres what I ended up with, but it shouldn't be even considered as real, true or even a similar relative visual of what this might "actually be". It's really only one persons interpretation by fiteration of what it might be.... and even then.. I don't know what it is and only provide it in a "entertainment category"... Thats my disclaimer.. and I'm sticking to it..

First off, let me share alittle about myself, I am a professional artist and have taken and worked on thousands of images so I am very well versed in artifacts on the lens, bugs, non-abnormal orbs etc. It definitely was NOT a toy, that much I'm sure of. Also, I'm not sure if anyone saw my other thread about black helicopters etc in the area, but this has been going on for almost 2 years now. below is a link to the full un-edited raw version of the image and like I said, I originally took this pic to get the rainbow from the chem trails. I can post the two pics before and after where you can see how I was walking forward while taking them too:



I pretty much agree with Johnny though, there isn't enough detail to get a good confirmation on what it could be...but yeah it's a fun one, and it has a pretty chemtrail-rainbow!

one thing that stands out about this object is, I can tell its not very high in altitude.

I am still convinced its a large locust though or something.

I'm going to vote for a bird photo. I'm a huge beliver in unknown aircraft, be it from thi planet or not, but this photo is such a small out of focus depiction of the object. Looks like a bird in flight with its wings tucked. Thanks for posting it regardless.

I'm not saying I know what it is one way or another, I just think it's funny how locusts, Cicadas, and odd shaped birds seem to love to jump in front of everyone's camera like the belligerent drunk guy at spring break...or so far as 95% of explanations go.

That is because most people do not notice common objects (like birds and insects) when they take photos. Ask any photographer how many photos they took that had unexpected elements in them.

too high up to be a helicopter, too big to be a bug or bird. looks pretty interesting

Take that statement with a bit of sarcasm. Remember I had said I am a professional artist

so I am well aware of what shows up in photos. It's usually "Joe Average" who wouldn't know what they're looking at anyways are the ones who come to conclusions on these things. Notice *I didn't even say I thought it was anything, neither did Johnny who seems to be some kind of an authority(sorry John, don't really know you after all
), so how some people can say "Oh it's definitely this" sometimes, I have no idea.

So, are you a painter?

Yes, and it's because those "Joe Average" are the ones that usualy provide photos with unexpected elements in them that the "bird explanation" is used so frequently.


Notice *I didn't even say I thought it was anything, neither did Johnny who seems to be some kind of an authority.
Neither did I, I don't have any idea of what that may be, although the general shape could be that of a bird I would expect to see more signs of that if that was the case.

Pro Artist: That means I whore myself out for creative projects other people can't do themselves. So I've been paid to do pretty much everything from paint, photography, photo restorations, websites, animations, logos, advertisements, product packaging, etc, all the way to making 3D working models of movie props. I use quiet a bit of practical science in my work (pretty handy with the calipers) even in my personal fine art, not to mention being a manipulator of light, you learn a lot of tricks life likes to play on us.


And pardon me if I seemed to imply you directly in any condescending manner. My dry/blunt observations can sometimes appear to be snide attacks directed right at you, but that is not my intention.

And just for the record "Joe Average" rocks

No problem, but I would like to point that sometimes my understanding of English fails me (I am Portuguese, I never speak English and only write it here, although I read it everyday), and something that may be simple and plain to you may look like a complex puzzle to me.

i looked at the picture's first thing popped into my head was a jarfly.

i think some people call em a locust.

then i saw someone else say it looked like a locust allso .
so they must see the same thing i see.

it's the same sape as a big locust/jarfly thre wing's are basicly invisable anyways.

Reminds me of this picture. If so it is a very old friend of the ones that struggle so hard keep it silent and a non disclosure.

I once photographed a UFO over a nearby body of water, didn't notice the object until reviewing the pictures and sent it to the paper. It looked almost exactly like your object, only a little 'heavier' and darker. It looked like a classic UFO shaped object. The paper printed the object and said it was likely a flying bird


Take a look at your object and ask yourself, could it be a flying bird? I myself am not sure what I photographed, but I was sure flying birds don't look like that. Considering your picture looks alot like the one I took, what do you think?

Even if my photographed object was not a real UFO, I've still seen 4 of them and am not really obsessed with proving anyone. You'll probably feel the same if you happen to see anymore.

Looks like a bug of some sort.

I was observing the last pic you posted (most zoomed in one) and noticed on the 'pointy' right side, there appears 2 legs.

The rounded side (left) has a bit of a blurriness surrounding (semi-circle & outside) the darker inner rounded edge. This blurriness could be fast action wing motion - flapping.

First thought of what kind of bug it could be?

Lady Bug
