Looks like something, maybe water damage or a flaw on the camera. The people who took the picture didn't seem to think much of it.
Doesn't seem to be any context either.

Now that you mention it, it could be a water mark for sure.

This is a good site referencing ufo pictures from 1870 to today. Your picture is on there also.

Cigarette burn or water marks are good guesses but the scratches that move across the 'mark' don't seem to have any 3D pespective to them. In other words, the scratches on top of the water mark or cigarette burn should have changed direction slightly due to a ridge or a change in texture which makes me think the image is part of the photo. It is interesting that someone wrote on the picture because photos were rare then and common practice would have been to write on the back, in addition to the fountain pen ink probably not being absorbed by the paper. I think the writing is from a later date.

This is one I have never seen. I look forward to seeing what some of the resident experts have to say. It is interesting no matter what.. thanks for sharing this OP.

This is one of my favorites from the old ones. Still unsolved, a great mystery!

Here is the story from the link above regarding your picture.

"1929-SlideWard-Colorado Ward Sawmill, April-This incident is retold by the photographers daughter: "This photo was taken by my father Edward Pline at the sawmill in Ward where we lived at the time. I think it was 1929. I was about six years old then. My father was there to photograph the sawmill for some reason or another, and as he was taking the photo, he described a 'terrible thunderous bellow,' and a large round thing as big as a very large boulder that moved through the air above them. You can see it in the picture. None of the sawmill workers saw the thing in the photo, but they all heard the sound and felt the ground shudder. Later in my life I tried researching the incident at the County Historical Society, but I did not find any references to it. My father passed on a few years after the incident, and I have not found any surviving sawmill workers from that time." Hetty Pline"

edit to add: Sounds like they may have heard a sonic boom?

Yes the battle of LA is one of my favorites too but next time.. try a source other than rense. Its not exactly looked upon as the most respected source. There is a military museum online that has a full section about it.

I know, thanks Nephra. It was the first one that came up in my search. It looked like they might have got that story right.
