  A man in his twenties living in Saint Joseph South eastern Reunion island (a French overseas Indian ocean province) was trying out his new digital camera. Back into his home from the verandah ,he noticed after transferring the pictures from his camera to his computer ,that on one of his pictures there was like a grain of dust. To his amazement he noticed after zooming a very peculiar shape which did not appear on a previous picture of the same section of the sky taken a few minutes before. He went to the para-military police to report the incident. The police forces phoned the civilian aeronautics official and no flight was reported in the area at the given date and time, that was on Friday morning of August 26th 2005 around 8.30 am. After foolproof scrutiny the pictures and report have been sent to the CNRS Scientific Research Centre in mainland France. If you want further detail I can put you in touch with the newspaper that published the story.

Investigator's Notes: The photo with this report is most interesting and doesn't appear to be anything conventional.  An article about this photo appeared in a recent issue of a major French newspaper.  (Click here to access article.  The article has been translated to English.)
