Some observations:

The photo was purportedly taken somewhere in the state of Ohio on Aug 28, 2007 (Search for Ohio on Aug 28, 2007) during a lunar eclipse. There was, in fact, a total lunar eclipse on that date and was visible to anyone in Ohio with a clear view of the sky.

ALLis0NE notes that the exif data indicates the photo was originally taken on Feb 28, 2005 at around 10:00 AM.




"/Exif/Image/DateTime", "8/28/2007 6:30:38 PM"
"/Exif/Photo/DateTimeOriginal", "2/28/2005 9:57:22 AM"
"/Exif/Photo/DateTimeDigitized", "2/28/2005 9:57:22 AM"



Only two lunar eclipse occurred in 2005 (2005 Apr 24: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse and 2005 Oct 17: Partial Lunar Eclipse) and neither was a total eclipse as indicated in the photo. Even if one did occur on that date, it would not be visible in the late morning. Lunar eclipses are only visible at night.

The photo as presented does appear to be rotated clockwise ~90 degrees. In mid northern latitudes (North America, Europe, Asia) the Moon rises in the east with its northeastern limb up (Mare Crisium), it reaches it highest point in the south with its north on top, and sets in the west with its northwestern limb (Mare Imbrium) on top.



(See wikipedia article)


Assuming the earth’s horizon is at the bottom of the OP's photo, the moon would never appear orientated as shown when viewed in the state of Ohio nor anywhere else in North America. (See corrected photo)

Can someone please close this thread and link it to internos' wonderful post proving almost beyond a doubt that it is a long term exposure of an aircraft?

It looks very much like a rod. There was a documentary pertaining to rods on the history channel, and the oldest sighting of one was in the 1800's, where two farms said they saw a giant "serpent-like" creature with no head, flying with fins through the skies, followed by a rain cloud.

Through this description, they may have seen a saucer from the side, and I'm surprised to how closely the object in your picture resembles both a rod and UFO.

Too bad.

It just was too good to be true, great explaining by the experts

the fact that the date / time stamp is wrong - is IMHO irrelevant i have lost track of the number of times i have seen people incapable of setting up the menu on thier camera

over exposed airplane. case closed. it is caught at the right angle to be able to see all the lights on the airplane in the over exposed pic.

I'm probably late to the party, but that is a long exposure of an airplane. The blinking lights give the impression you see. I've seen a few of these. The moon's appearance is proof of the long exposure.

Since I skipped the middle pages and I'm sure this has already been identified; I add this only to reinforce what it is.

Plane pretty seemingly imo. Not a bridge (or a boat, which actually looks like the lights on a boat, when seen at the right angle), since stars typically don't fly under boats.

So many people post in threads without reading ANYTHING that anyone else has posted.

I'm sure even though it's been almost completely confirmed as a plane there will be many people that come in agreeing that it's a UFO of some sort and have no clue about the possibility of it actually being a plane.

i took the image into photoshop at work here (very limited options) i messed with the brightness and contrast. if you set the settings to -10 brightness and +90 contrast you definitely see a solid object in there. i also did some other testing to see if i can spot and sure tell signs like pixel manipulation and such and all the pixels seem to belong there.

i am officially on the fence on this one. in one turn with the simple test i ran it seems to be a genuine object but in the other i know how to manipulate it so it can appear to be that. now i understand that taking a pic lie this would have the effect it has, in turn that being the haze that is uniform on the pic, but that in turn helps hide any manipulation that could actually been done to the picture.

im not saying its fake im not saying it is real im just saying that right now it is damn friggin interesting.

you got my star and flag

soild object - if it had a long exo - you would see blurry around the object, zoom in more, it gets more interesting

Very nice picture. I, however, do not believe that its a plane. If what they say is true then the lines of lights would have been much longer in my opinion. Starred and flagged.

Has anyone ever heard of reports of white oblong shaped ufos? I mean one that looks kinda like a hard white eyeglass case. I don't know how else to describe it.

cool looking picture. Also one that i thing has been proven without a doubt to be a plane. I can clearly see the strobe pattern as some posters have pointed out. Still, a cool picture but i'm not that excited anymore.

Their anti-collision lights and the beacon from an aircraft, judging from the size probably a 777, or 767. there is also a faint light at the 'rear' of each sequence that is the strobe.
