Appearance / Description of Object(s)
It was flying overhead and from its size it's enormous, about half the size of the supercenter Walmart that it's hovering over. It is a thin silver shape and casts a medium gray shadow. I may be seeing a square silver box shape below the silver line, but it's hard to say. I hope I can upload the photo for you to see. While I have a good memory, I have poor vision although I do wear glasses.
Size of Object(s)
The actual size. Well, absolutely enormous.
Description of Area / Surroundings
It was just coming into an urban area. There were no military bases or power plants around. I'm from WNY so I don't know Scranton, PA that well but I didn't see anything like that. We had driven through the mountains, come out of them for some time, and started going into Scranton, PA. Please realize while it was 2:30pm it looked more like 10pm! The weather was HORRIBLE.
Full Description & Details
I have no idea what this photo is, and I would like an expert opinion. I took the picture with my cell phone, and not until now have I uploaded the photo. I snapped this photo just as we were coming into Scranton, PA in April 2010. The weather was terrible (lightning, tornado watches, black clouds, horrible rain, hail, etc) and soon after my parents and I got off the highway. In absolute no way was this the sun breaking through the clouds, as the sun would a) not spread light in such a way and b) the weather was absolutely horrible that the sirens ended up being blown to seek shelter (which is why we got off the expressway and to a restaurant). If you need other photos to show how bad the weather was I have them, and you'll notice PA lisence plates and other indicators that I took the photos on the same day/time. I have a very high IQ (165) and a very good memory. I was sitting in the back seat of the car and listening to the rain just drench the car and the loud thunder. I said to my mom that a city was coming up so we could find a place to stop. My handbag was at my feet and I saw this light piercing through the clouds at a weird angle. I told my dad who was driving to slow down, and quick as I could I took a photo. At the time my dad was driving 35mph, as I asked him how fast he was going (which may sound slow but there were a lot of cars scrambling to get off the highway). The figure also casted a shadow down. I have shown friends said photo on my cell phone (I just uploaded it now, October 2010) and EVERYONE has asked me if it's a UFO. I honestly cannot say, but I hope an expert can.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No airplane would ever fly in such weather (tornado watches!) or helicopter, blimp, etc. It was too early for the moon to be out and the clouds were a dark gray and pure black mix. I'm not positive it's a UFO, but I can't think of anything else.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I believe anything is possible.
I really want to send you the photo!
