I am looking at the RAW image, what are those blue lines further down the image? Solar flares?
On closer inspection there are a few dots scattered around too. I believe it is an image artifact of some kind. The object you point out is perfectly horizontal with the camera, plus once you enhance the curves lots of lines and random blacks spots become apparent.
Here are some of the artifacts I am going on about, the object in question does look more pronounced though.

Very interesting photos.Maybe if we could know the size of the artifacts,would be better,and more informative
Friend: Don't these folk know that the camera is taking a picture through a thick, old dirty, scratched window with debris floating between the lens and the window? I mean, look at the black dots, straight black lines, squiggly blue lines throughout these images. To make matters worse, these are jpeg compressed (75%) on that web site such that they are fuzzed. And since they are film cameras, not digital cameras, you gotta worry about the image/negative scanner. And even if all of this could some how be cleared up (it can't), is this really going to prove anything? You really need a stereo images/video to accomplish anything in terms of looking for UFOs in such images.
JO: Thanks -- I was presuming it was handheld, but I didn't know if it was digital or film. Can you identify the camera for me, please?
Friend: I have no data source that identifies the camera for that roll of film.
It is definitely not a digital camera since the image does not have an E in its ID.
Since it is a 700 series roll, I think you can safely assume it is a Hasselblad camera with 70mm film width, 55mm x 55mm original image size and using a 110 mm lens (i.e. this camera focal length is listed in the data) and most likely 5069 film (Color positive, Kodak Elite 100S, E6 Reversal, Replaces Lumiere, Warmer in tone vs. Lumiere) although it may be 2443 film (Kodak Aerochrome 2443, color IR, thin base, EA-5 process thru June 1999, E-6 process afterward). Why this roll series ends in an "A" as well as why some other rolls have film frames ending in letters is not my expertise.

Nice photo! A grouping of 'fastwalkers'. It happens, they don't always fly around individually.
Mysterious flying egg things...someone knows about them I'm sure, they have the military classification 'fastwalkers' for a start
You and me can see 'em out there. They're not always grouped and they're not always illuminated, but damn are they there! IR equipment would presumably help you see more (especially the non illuminated ones).

Has the discrepancy in pixelation already been mentioned? I am not sure how it works, but the images seem to carry a very different pixelated signature. Maybe it is because of their color and shape features differing from the rest of the image.
