Okay, below is a zoomed and compressed thumb of the most clear 'dot' on the image.
The one pictured is the one closest to the center of the frame:
clicky for bigger
For comparison in image resolution between the two, here's also a compressed image of the plane:
clicky for bigger
Keep in mind that both images are slightly false since I took crops of the original 92dpi image resolution frame, and boosted those crops up to
9999.99 dpi on a rough 1inch x 1 inch square.
I say slightly false because by taking 92dpi and increasing that up to 10kdpi, you're just breaking up the bigger pixels into smaller pixels for a
smoother look where the software behind the scenes does some calculations based on what it 'sees' on the image.
Looking first at the jet plane that we know to be a jet place, you can clearly see how unclear it is even at this image density. We've got what's
called lens-blur creaded by the quality of the camera, optics, processing, shutter shape, focal length, ISO setting and other such fun technical
The fuselage, for instance, appears to be split at the front, or stacked as a double fuselage.
We can't tell if this is a passenger airliner, freight, or really even the make/model of the jet, how many engine pods it has or anything, though
through some squinting, you might could guess there's 2 large engine pods, but, that would be a guess, and we've no way to verify that either.
Now as to the other thing, the one 'dot' that was most clear, just as with the jet, we get quite a bit of ambiguity. The shape of the dot is somewhat
circular, but, in accounting for lens blurring as seen with the jet, we must infer that there's some doubling effect here as well.
What is it? I don't know. I can't say.
We don't have a definite shape due to all those factors I mentioned earlier. Nor do we have a size, even relative to the jet which we could guess at
just from looking at any jet on the planet, because this dot might be 50 feet way, or 50,000 feet away.
It's not anything we can tell for certain.
Thus, in the nature of things Unidentified, this is as of yet Unidentified.
Alien flying saucers? Eh, I'd not just to that conclusion yet.
There's still a number of other things that can checked.
This photo, according to the EXIF data was takenon 9.05.2009 at 5:08:54 AM
Is this time correct? I'd think it would be darker outside if this was taken at 5am in the morning.
If incorrect due to not adjusting the time/date on the camera, then, please let us know when this photo was captured.
Where on the planet were you located when you took this photo?
Further, were you aiming straight up, or in what direction? North, South, East, West, North East, South West, etc.
Such information can give us data enough to look at what planets and stars were doing what and where they were positioned in the sky at that time.
We could then rule out or maybe even confirm whether or not these might be planets, or stars since such can indeed be seen in the daytime sometimes.
