On my way back home, I was in my car listening to the radio while I was driving. It was a bright sunny day (11/28/12) at a red light I spoted an
airplane high above the immense dawn sky, leaving a contrails behind it.
This was nothing unusual to me. The light turned green, I keep driving, it was kind of impossible not stare at the contrails in front of my view.
While I was driving and looking up, I started seeing a bright, round circle right where the airplane was going, the airplane started making a turn,
like it was avoiding whatever that circle was.
The circle was moving like it was dancing. All I thought at that moment was that nobody was going to believe what my eyes were seeing. So I grabbed my
phone while I was driving and took three pictures.
Once I stopped my car at a red light the bright circle shined and it disappeared. I'm not sure what that thing was, all I know is that I hope to see
This picture is 100% real with no editing or photoshop done on it from my HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile.
Special thanks to the witness Irwin O Valencia for this sighting report.

With the photo:
There's a larger version of this photo
on Ken Pfeifer's site
... with a short note saying that the full size is 595x1132 pixels.
Unfortunately, this photo is not the original one, and the EXIF data are useless, as someone circled in red the "UFO".
Moreover, the photo was very likely cropped, as 595x1132 pixels is not in any case an original resolution picture for the HTC Sensation 4G.
The rear camera takes 8 megapixel (3264×2448) pictures while the front one takes 480x640 pictures.
All of this leads me to two conclusion:
1- About this specific photo: it could be anything, an orb, a UFO, an ET ship, whatever.... the fact that the plane made a turn could be
coincidental.... or not. We will most likely never have the answer. And the fact that the original photo wasn't released doesn't help in any
2- It still amazes me how, when an interesting UFO photo popped up, the poster (conveniently?) massacre the photo by resized it, cropped it, made
annotations on it, and so on.... thus avoiding any further investigation.
Let alone the fact that when the original photo is genuinely asked for analysis, it's often like doing a never-ending obstacle course.
When will comes the time where people invested in the UFO subject will understand that to kept intact data and release original files (with the
agreement of the original shooter of course) will serve their cause and help, whatever will be the results of any further investigation, to better
understand the UFO phenomenon?
