Date of Sighting: May 31, 2011
Time of Sighting: 8 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Harrison, Michigan (See Map)

Description: It was going going north and the photo was taken on May 31, 2011 at 8 PM. I was taking pictures of the awesome sky and when I took the picture it was there. My uncle looked at the photo and thought that it was some sort of UFO. I have been seeing UFOs since I was 15 years old.

Note: The witness has been responsive to questions, but her messages have been difficult to interpret. Apparently she saw the object as she said that it was moving north. A check of the winds aloft at cloud heights (at heights of 5,000 and 7,000 feet) showed that the winds were from west-southwestly directions at strong speeds (70 mph). Therefore clouds at this height would have been moving in a northerly component direction. This is consistent with the motion observed by the witness. It appears to me that the object is the reflection of the setting sun off of a cloud. (Sunset was at 9:14 PM EDT.)
