I was outside, looking at all the strange clouds today, and i saw this object, it was moving fast, probably 2x faster than a plane, thats not at all suspicious, just fast, but I could only get one picture, it moved behind some clouds then i couldnt see it.

Oh and for the people who think its some sort of white, glowing plane, I took a picture of a plane that flew by seconds after i took the picture lol.

Like i said its not a great picture, but you can clearly see it, its near the right, and it looks kinda red. If we can get any photo editors can you edit it and make it bigger? That would be great/ it looked bigger in person, and it was alot brighter than it was in the picture


edit on 7-9-2011 by scapers2u because: Taken photos out...for some reason people like to post where I live. 3 people has done that so far.

You have the brightness on your side for a UFO.
A good start.
Going for cylinder unless any wings show up.

Agreed its not a great photo..but a photo none the less....but you saw it with your own eyes and if you believe it cant be identified then thats all the proof you need for yourself.S&F thanks for sharing

Could be! But it was alot brighter, every single plane i see is usually black, even very far away.

Why do the two pictures (the plane and the UFO) have slightly different aspect ratios and different resolutions if they were taken only seconds apart with the same camera?

UFO picture: 816 x 464, AR: 1.76:1
Plane picture: 1088 x 608, AR: 1.79:1

Did you crop and/or resize the UFO picture? If so, where is the original picture?

What resolution do you have your camera set to take pictures at?

Oh, thats probably because i used Tinypic as an uploader. one picture, the ufo i uploaded so its all on one page, and the plane i took it shows tinypic webpage and the picture, 2 different links, Thats probably why. I took the ufo picture about 30 seconds before the plane picture


No i did not crop

I think the resolution is 816 x 464 x RGB

i55.tinypic.com... is the link for the picture of the plane the same as the ufo picture. The same, just uploaded it differently

Yes, the plane picture's resolution is still higher than the UFO picture's resolution (about 1.75 times higher). As I said:

UFO picture: 816 x 464, AR: 1.76:1
Plane picture: 1088 x 608, AR: 1.79:1

I still don't see why the aspect ratios are different. Normally when a picture is resized (assuming Tinypic resized it), the aspect ratio is retained, which means it should be 816 x 456.

In any event, check the properties of the original UFO picture directly off the camera to see what its resolution is.

Here is a link to my enhanced version of the object:

DISCLAIMER: Don't be too quick to judge what this is. As the image is "enhanced" the chance that the enhancement is inaccurate increases. The enhancement only provides a general shape of the object.
It could be a flying disk, or it could be a plane banking left. Or a bird. Or flying trash.

You be the judge.

Strange, I did the same procedure for both photos, take it with my digitical camera, and download them and put them on tinypic

EDIT: Duh! I forgot, i did use my droid X to take these pictures, not my digitcal camera, they should both still be the same resolution though, thanks for all the info!

Hey, I saw something very similar looking a couple weeks ago. As far as I can tell, it was similar looking, lol. What I saw in the sky looks basically just like the thing in your pic. It was very silvery/shiny and after I watched it fly along for a few seconds, it just blinked out. I try not to get too excited about stuff because I kind of figured it was just a plane and maybe my eyes are just bad, lol. But it really did look just like your pic. I don't remember it moving really fast though, so maybe mine really just was a plane, lol. S&F for getting a pic though! Maybe you'll see another!


Btw, not saying that I think what YOU saw was a just plane. I just figured that's what I saw, but who knows!

Mine was not actually going very fast, just like twice as fast as a regular airplane, which still, isnt very fast from my view too. Yeah it was silvery shiney. So it probably was the same thing

I look out now every night, and these nights are awesome because every star is out and its cool outside, so starting to look out in a few minutes maybe ill see more.
