[These are 2 different versions of the same photograph.]
This image was taken from the Zion National Park shuttle. After taking the image, I noticed a small dark spot on the LCD screen, but thought it was a bird.
FULL DESCRIPTION & DETAILS:
While on a road trip through Arizona and Utah on Labor Day weekend, 2004, my son and I visited several national parks. We stopped for a very brief visit in Zion National Park near Cedar City, Utah. I took 27 photographs in the park on the morning of September 7. The accompanying image, #22, is the only one with anything unusual. It is the raw, unmodified, image taken by my Minolta Dimage A7 camera.
Unfortunately, I didn't realize that I had imaged a UFO until I was back home that evening.
This is a first for me. I've never seen anything like it before. I've been looking for similar photographs on the web, and for others who may have captured the same object, but so far without success.
