I take many photos of interesting and beautiful scenery as my work load/duties permit.
I took the attached photo some time in March(2012)while flying over a portion of the Grand Canyon at approx 39,000 feet. The lights in the upper right of the photo were not noticed until some time later after I had time to look over all the photos that I had taken during that tour.
I do not claim that the lights are UFOs, but I have used my BlackBerry cell phones camera for years and I know that the lights are not a reflection
Again, I did not even notice them when I took the photo. Just though MUFON might like to have the photo/information. (Im having some computer skill issues with attaching the photo. If the photo does not come through, I can try to attach it again).

Looks like reflections, but even if it was flying craft my first suspicions of origin would be US Gov black ops or such. [color=C1FFA6]Not aliens. I can never look at a UFO photo again and think aliens,......

I'm in support of window reflection.
While potentially true the witness claims to have used Blackberry on regular occasion to take photos and never experienced this before, taking pictures with a blackberry phone does not an experienced expert witness photographer make. The guy is not a professional photographer, so, even though he has not had this effect before, as he claims, his absence of experience does not make him an expert in regard to photography.
That he is not a serious and experienced photographer is backed up by his admission to using a camera phone whereas if he were serious about this hobby of snapping shots, especially on a pilot's salary, he'd have some decent kit on board for taking some much better photos.
Further indication that this is simply window reflection is based from the testimony of the pilot himself, entering that he is a trained pilot as part of the testimony to giving him credibility as a supposedly trained and competently aware observer, yet, he did not see this with his own eyes.
His phone hasn't been hacked or modified to take IR or UV photos, otherwise the witness testimony would have said so, so, this isn't a photo of something that would show up in a photo yet not be visible to the human eye.
Thus, this is most likely window reflection not seen by the pilot simply because his eyes were not in the same position and angle as he held the phone to take the photo.
