Eerily similar to a UFO shape indeed, but it's hard to ignore the fact that Boeing has been awarded a contract for developing a heat shield prototype for the upcoming Orion mission.

I'm a rookie to photoshop and images, but I think it's weird that the object in question has 3 circular shadows while everything else has one. The shadows beneath the craft also don't resemble the same features as the object.
Like i said i dont have much knowledge in photography but those seem out of place to me.

As for the craft, it could be the saucer design where they spin magnetic fluid at high speed to produce supposed anti-gravitic force using magnetic forces. They have been researching that for the past 30 years.
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 13, 2007 -- Boeing Advanced Network and Space Systems material and process engineer Elizabeth Chu inspects the Thermal Protection System Manufacturing Demonstration Unit developed for NASA's Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle project. Boeing Advanced Systems was awarded a contract last year to develop a prototype heat shield to protect NASA astronauts from extreme heat during re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere upon returning from lunar and low-Earth orbit missions. The work was performed at Boeing facilities in Huntington Beach, Calif.
