Received this photo and description from one of our readers who used the submission form in the left column. Here is Jo Ann's description of the event. Dirk
This is a picture that I took of an object in the sky over Penticton, B.C, Canada. It was directly overhead when I took the picture but I had watched it coming towards me from the west, heading east.
To the naked eye, it looked like a tiny dot but it kept pace with the clouds. It reminded me of how balloons look when they get so far off that they are only a dot. I had convinced myself that it was exactly that, until I zoomed in on the picture and the shape wasn't balloon like at all. This picture was taken on August 28, 2011.
Using Adobe Photoshop I enlarged the circle containing the object and enhanced the image.
The image was directly overhead in this photo and appears to elongated. The image may be a helicopter or it may be a genuine unknown and unidentifiable flying object.
We would like to thank Jo Ann for her submission.
