Date of Sighting: September 1, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10:15 to 10:30 AM Local Time
Location of Sighting: Colofsco, Italy (See Map)

Description: I thought that I would contact you with a daylight, clear webcam sighting of an orange UFO, taken today around 9 AM. (The date and time are stamped on all pictures.) It appears in 3 frames that only refresh every 5 minutes, so it was in the air for a good 15 minutes. (See the attached pictures in order.) Better yet flick through them in succession to see the object move.  It is an orange/red color about just off center to the bottom right.

I have for my own purposes played with the pictures to do stuff like negative and resizing etc to see if this could be explained, but I am no expert and the pictures you have are exactly as observed from this site:

Please let me know what you think and publish with a credit to myself.

Note: The webcam is pointed to the northeast. Given the time the sun would have been to the right of the webcam. Given this scenario the flaming image could be a "lens flare" due to reflection of the sun. The image does not appear to move in the 4 frames that were taken at intervals of 5 minutes. If the image was real, one would think that it would move over a 15 minute period. (Of course UFOs do hover so this not a "total" argument against an "unconventional" object.)
