On the morning of Oct 20, 2006 there was a storm moving in from the east, which rarely happens here (mid Atlantic region). When it comes in from the east it swirls around the mountain and I grabbed the camera and started shooting pictures. This is a crop of the oddity in one of the pictures. I did not see this with the naked eye. I was watching, and shooting, the storm move in. The photo was taken at almost 10am facing east south east.

I can't tell if it's close, far, or what so I thought I'd post it here for other's opinions. I'm not making any claims because I simply don't know. I'll send the untouched original to anyone who wants it. I'd just like some honest feedback.

I put it in this forum because it seemed the best fit. Thanks for looking.

There is something there....the resident photo inhancers in 3,2,....1

Maybe they can help, I'll check back laters after some zooming and embedding is done.

I could be wrong here I don't know but to me it looks like a water droplet, is that a shower hose thingy to the left of the object?.

Just my 2 cents

The object to the left is a floodlight. The rain hadn't reached us yet, it was still swirling around to the east of us.

[Edited to correct wording.]

Thats an outdoor light fixture under the eve of the house...I think...

I am zooming in and getting pixles...I know there is better photo enhancers on here...
I'm lucky to get mine from my cam to my PC...yet alone learned to use the edit features.

At the link there are two other photos. The first is the original of the one with the oddity, and the second is the photo taken seconds after the first.

Thanks Doc, the first was the one with the oddity. The second was the one without. The crop I did today. The file names will also bear this out since Kodak named them by number as they came from the camera. The exif data is intact and will show the time line.

hmmmm maybe I'm seeing something else....

I clearly see what looks like the same object...in the other two pics and it looks like movement....I may be focusing on the wrong thing in the other two pics..

Now this is just my opinion, but being as though this is a rare occurrence perhaps there were meteorologists that wanted to collect data from the storm. I zoomed in on your image, and then pasted a resized image of a weather balloon and placed it beside the object in your photo. I have made my own conclusions but I will let others decide for themselves.




ETA: S&F none the less for posting an actual pic

That's something I'd never considered... though why anyone would be out here in the boonies with a weather balloon is beyond me. Too many hills for it to get caught on I'd think. Possibility though.

There's a magnifying glass on the top right corner. It'll blow the photos up to full size if you'd like a better look.

Looks like it is a chip in the window or a droplet of water to me. This is common for photos taken out aircraft windows.

So this was taken on the ground and not through glass ?

Do you have the original raw image? This one is not original. It has the letters SHAR on the bottom.

Can you upload it w/out editing it?

No rain there yet, and I'm leaning out across the porch (uncovered) rail shooting in front of the house. No glass. See the blue sky? That was above us and didn't fill in for about ten to fifteen minutes after I started taking pics.

I do. Can you U2U me with an address to send the original to? Do you want both the first and second photos?
Edit to add that Picasa added the SHAR. I did upload the original to Picasa but Picasa must have done stuff to it.

Stirling.....

Over time, there have been many such incidents of marks, dirt, cracks, chips, water droplets, etc... being photographed through glass & "mistaken" for something more distant in the sky.

With that said, I have not looked at the op's photo in detail so I presently draw no conclusion regarding that photo.

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not

At first glance I'd say the dark object in the second photo is probably a turkey buzzard. They hang around the top of that mountain to the right. I'll have to do a zoom to see for sure, though. Good eyes!

Edit to add: Ok I zoomed in to 400% and don't see the typical buzzard look. They're huge so I'd expect to at least see the point in front where neck and head would be. Dunno.
