Sighting Reports 2009

Airborne Disk With Sphere on Top & Bottom Photographed

Edited Photo Sent by Witness Showing Object & Enlargement.
Edited Photo Sent by Witness Showing Object & Enlargement.

Date of Sighting: December 19, 2009
Time of Sighting: 1:14 PM CST
Location of Sighting: New Orleans, Louisiana

Description: I saw a disk like shaped object with a half sphere on top and on the bottom. The disk was not flat. It was angled. It moved up and away slowly and then disappeared. I shot a picture of it before it went away.

Note: The photo has been edited by the witness pointing out the object and inserting an enlargement of the object on the photo. This photo could be fabricated, but more information is needed to determine authenticity. The original unedited photo has been requested. Updates will be posted.

Update - December 29, 2009: At my request the witness sent what he said was the original unedited photo as output from the camera. Further analysis has not determined whether the photo has been edited subsequent to output from the camera. Analysis showed that the photo was taken on December 22 rather than December 19 as stated by the witness. (However, this could be explained as either an error in reporting by the witness or the date setting could be incorrect on the camera.) No software signatures were found which would indicate programs that could have been used to alter photo (e.g. Photoshop, Paintshop Pro, etc). The photo was taken with a Canon PowerShot SD870 IS. This camera has a maximum resolution of 8 megapixels.
