Location of Sighting: Bakersfield, California
Date of Sighting: March 25, 2017
Time of Sighting: 1 PM PDT
Description: We didn’t see the UFO until I loaded our pictures into my computer. We had our camera set on a tripod with a 10 second timer. The images 10 seconds before and after this one do not show it.
Note: Enlargement reveals that the object may be disk shaped. The 10 second exposure suggests that the object was hovering or moving very slowly. This makes it more unlikely that the object was a bird or insect. The witness stated that the object was not found in adjoining frames taken before and after the above image. The shape of the object was not distorted due to “camera jiggle” because the camera was mounted on a tripod.
Update – March 27, 2017: The comments received below express doubts that a 10 second exposure would be likely in a well lit scene. I went back and looked at the camera metadata and found that the exposure time was 1/320 seconds. The 10 second figure likely refers to the time delay sequence of the photos. (This was pointed out in the comments.) However, I am still not convinced that the object is a bird or insect.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
