Are These Photos of The Same Object?

Date of Sighting: April 28, 2007
Time of Sighting: Shortly After the Noon Hour
Date Sighting Reported: May 15, 2007
Location: Parthenon Building in Nashville, Tennessee (Centennial Park)
Latitude: 36.13 Degrees North
Longitude: 86.81 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Object Was Not Seen. (Only Later Seen in Photo.)
Weather: Scattered High Clouds. Visibility 10 Miles. Winds From the North at 10 to 12 MPH.

Description (In Witness's Own Words): The fifth of April, I had taken many picture that day of the Parthenon in Nashville TN. I had these pictures for two weeks in my computer, and thought this one would make a good desktop picture. I then noticed the craft over the building. By close up viewing it it is probably maybe a half mile away.

Second Report by Witness: These pictures are at a 1504x1000 resolution, taken with a Nikon D50 digital camera. (The camera has a resolution of 6.1 megapixels.) That picture was taken facing the northwest. I included a few more photos, the one facing the Pathenon which would be west. The only thing I had done to it in photoMax was to lighten it a little when I had thought about putting it on my desktop and still didn't even notice it. There are a few pieces of dust on the lens, it was kind of breezy that day and lots of people. There was something going on that day called: get this, "Earth Fest" engouraging people to think of cleaning up the environment. The day was April 28. I got mixed up with my son's birthday of May 5th. If you notice in zooming in on the photo, the pixels are jumbled around the object. I don't know what the white part is. Thank you for your interest in this.

Investigator's Notes: This photograph has just been received. I am in the process of obtaining more information about the photo from the witness. Initially I thought that the object was a light fixture, but a screening analysis has not shown this to be true. The witness admitted editing the photo with software, but said that he only brightened it up. I do not believe that he added the object to the picture when he edited it. The object appears disc shaped and of bronze color with a white protrusion on top. There are distortions of pixels around the perimeter of the object. There is a white patch to the lower left of the object. The witness said that it was somewhat windy on that day, but I don't believe that the object is a kite as no attached string is evident. Other conventional explanations such as balloon, hot air balloon, commercial promotion, etc also don't fit. Given current information I have no explanation for this photo. It is one of several photos of disc shaped objects that we have received in the past two years.
