Description: We didn't actually see the object until we got home and looked at the pictures from our camping trip. We were at Lake Crescent on the Olympic Peninsula on Saturday, July 12th. The picture was probably taken around 6:00 or 7:00 PM. It was taken as we were riding a trail along the shore on our mountain bikes. The picture intrigued me because My girlfriend took several pictures of the same area and the object only appears in one. All the pictures were taken in the space of about a minute and a half. She was taking pictures of the moon just above the ridge beyond the lake. There are 3 pictures labeled ridge no object, then one picture labeled ridge object very small. The object is just below the moon and just above the ridge at about the 7 o'clock spot. The object is to the 6 o'clock position of the moon and is cylindrical in shape.

Comments: We receive many photos whereby witnesses don't see anything unusual, but later notice unknown artifacts in the background of their photos. In many cases we believe that these objects are out of focus birds or insects. The object in the photo above is out of focus and somewhat faint. It may be an insect, but this is not known for sure. The photo was taken with a Nikon Coolpix L4 digital camera. The maximum resolution of this camera is 4 mega-pixels.
