Date of Sighting: July 17, 2011
Time of Sighting: 8:23 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: West Palm Beach, Florida (See Map)

Description: I did not actually have a sighting. I was driving around West Palm Beach seeing millionaire mile, and snapping pictures with my cell phone camera. It was not actually seen until I reviewed the pictures. What was very interesting is that the first ten times I looked at the picture I just thought it was the sun. I was taking a picture of what was Estee Lauder's backyard. Then the eleventh time or more I looked at it I realized that what I assumed was the sun was making a shadow underneath it. The sun doesn't shadow, save for an eclipse, and even then I don't think it would be called a shadow. This is when I began to examine the picture more closely and realized that the bright sun colored light was actually a series of four lights in a row in a rectangular shape, not round like the sun at all. It was like four suns lined up. There were no jet noises, only the ocean noise and jets can be heard over the ocean anyway. So I believe I caught a spacecraft on my phone without even realizing it. Can you please tell me what you think of this photo? The sun would have been behind me at the time of photo. By the way it was actually after sunset for that location which was 8:14 p.m. that day.

Response From Witness: I did not take the photo through a closed window. I was hanging out of the passenger window of a car. I did not see this object with the naked eye it only showed up in the photo. There was no commercial light because it is a photo straight over the beach to the Atlantic Ocean. Thank you for your interest and your response. It is very much appreciated.

Note: The witness is correct that the light was not due to the sun. The photo was taken with a SAMSUNG SCH-R360 cell phone camera. The witness did not the photo through a window or under any lights. This is an intriguing photo. I have no explanation.
