Over what distance do you suppose the lights on camera phones illuminate well enough to take a good photo? How about the built in flash on a
professional grade 35mm camera? Or even better, an external flash on a professional grade 35mm camera? I'll give you a clue -- it's a few feet
to maybe 25 feet for the better equipment. Power hungry, large spotlights are OK for several hundreds of meters.
And even those big spotlights wouldn't illuminate more than a small circle part way across one of the mile-wide objects being seen occasionally.
Infrared will not do any better than the above light sources. At least, not the stuff people typically own. Very few people, if any, in any city
would own a photographic system which amplified available light enough to get a decent image of a distant object. Even if they did, shooting a dark
object against a bright sky would be really challenging.
In any case, if a good photo were taken which showed anything interesting, odds are pretty good it would be called a hoax.I'd suspect one as well
because I'd expect a featureless surface. Why? anything interesting would imply structure. And structure would imply friction = noise during
movement, heat signature, radar signature, waste of energy.
You could propose some field effect to drag atmosphere with the structure in a more symmetric melange, I suppose... But featureless surfaces are
still what I would expect and that's the type of report we usually hear about.
