Full Description & Details

Ok so was outside my home in burley, watching the red sky at night. and decided to take a photo of it. when i did i saw something shown up on the photo. I immediately took two more photo's from the same position to see if it would come up again but no.

From what it looks like to me is a flying phoenix . however i know there is a lot of mythology behind this and that this pic is most probably nothing but a fluke. but it still leaves me pondering as to what this is in the pic and also how it happend, If you could enlighten me i would be much appreciated.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

no not by any conventional man made object, but still not sure what it is or how it managed to end up in my photo

Witness Background

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

open to the idea. if there is nothing else out there its a hell of a waste of space. but not a person that follows this stuff really.
