    WTF - did I capture a UFO?

    All this talk is just too coincidental with what happened tonight. So I stumble across a thread about astro-photography and looks really interesting. I take out my dSLR, go outside, mount it on a tripod and set the exposure for 30 seconds.

    Took a few shots, bring them back and one REALLY stuck out. It wasn't until I was editing or attempting to that something stood out. I am 100% sure there was no plane in the air as I would have seen it.

    Make your own assumptions but this image has not been tampered with by any means in terms of adding or photo shopping, just enhanced colors.

    Drone? Satellite? Spy Plane?

    I'm gonna try this with my Rebel T3i. Who do you recommend for tri-pods?

    I have a manfrotto - pretty sturdy, light-weight and gets the job done. It doesn't have a balance point though, would have been nice, and the leg snaps are a bit tough to open but it was a decent buy for me. was about $180, I got it for $70 Click here to enlarge

    Looks like a reflection inside your lenze. You see the refraction before. Also it is in the line of the sunlight. Sometimes that happens.

    Propagates from the nose, but follows through afterwards:

    Refraction from the lens? maybe, but this was shot at night and it's moonlight. Also, the position of the moon isn't changing as rapidly as the object.

    Additionally, I took 2-3 additional shots of which this "refraction" did not appear.

    Just trying to come up with an explanation of an artifact on your picture which you didn't see in real life. It, as you stated, only appeared on the picture. So logically it must be something to do with the camera / lenses you use. Moonlight will act the same as sunlight with a long enough exposure time.

    I am trying to be as skeptical as I can. I'm going to take more pics tonight trying to replicate this issue. Anyways, we will see Click here to enlarge

    I still believe an ordinary person can capture something!

    You said this is at night, could it be a spot light? OT: my buddy came by last night with a laser pointer that can burn $#@! its so powerful, $#@!, it has a safety code just so its not turned on by accident. Ill find out what the name of it is, looks like some kinda tactical weapon. He said it was also made illegal after he purchased it, anyone know these?
