Description: On Sunday May 18, 2008 at 7:17 PM thunderstorms and heavy rains were broken up by a double rainbow. This is not seen very often. I took some pictures of the rainbows. I didn't see anything on the pictures until I downloaded them to my computer. The objects is very noticeable. It has no wings, emitted no sound, and has no lights. The fact that I caught them in the daytime is a plus. I will send the original photos as they came out of the camera. (Photo 917 was first and 917a was second.) The object was moving southeast. Most air traffic moves east to west over the river. At the most there were ten seconds between the pictures. The camera is a LG vx9900, 2.0 mega-pixel. The resolution is 1600x1200 which is is the highest for this camera. Everyone that has seen these has an " oh my god" answer. I do not have a good enough program to enlarge the object to properly identify what the object is. Could you write me back with a better analysis? I would appreciate it greatly.

Comments: The witness sent two photos. The first photo is posted above. The second photo shows the same object in a different position. Enlargement reveals a wingless object, but the object is too small or too far to determine any details. For this reason an identification cannot be made. Our organization receives many photos whereby witnesses do not see anything until they download their photos to a computer. The photos were taken using a LG vx9900 cell phone camera (2.0 mega-pixel resolution).
