Description: My girlfriend and I were watching the fireworks at Put-In-Bay on South Bass Island in Lake Erie. Part way through the fireworks a bright object appeared off to the right. It moved toward us in a southwest direction and then stopped! At first we thought it was a plane, but then it stopped, so just for the heck of it, I asked my girlfriend to take a picture. She zoomed in on it and took the attached picture and then it disappeared! We couldn't believe our eyes when we viewed this picture on her digital camera. Lots of people saw it and thought it had something to do with the fireworks. I was just wondering if anybody else got any pictures of this thing? It only appeared for about a minute!

Additional Report By Witness (In Response to Questions): The original photo is the original as loaded down from the camera! The second photo was zoomed in and lightened a bit to see more details. My girlfriend is NL (name abbreviated to protect witness) and her camera is an old Sony DSC-V1. It was set for max zoom and 5 megapixels! When I zoom in on this picture on my computer, I can count 6 stars! This gives you an idea of how bright this thing was! Also please notice a small red dot below the UFO. I am not sure what it is? It is near the bottom of the picture. This thing was real. We are not a couple of kids! I am a 66 year old retired Electrical Engineer and my girlfriend is in charge of the local hospital here and she is 62!

Note: The witness states that the photo above was the original (unedited) photo as output from the digital camera. The object in the photo is unusual and coupled with eyewitness reports makes this a sighting of very "high strangeness."
