Picture of UFO in background at dusk on mountaintop in NC.

Seven people including myself traveled to a mountain top (Max Patch)to look at a planet through a telescope. We were waiting for complete darkness and my I was taking pictures. When I received the pictures back found object in background. None of us actually saw this object and were surprised at the picture.

((NUFORC Note: The photograph indicates a black object against the aura of a setting Sun. The object appears black, or dark, and is of generally triangular shape. Its (apparent) size is approximately 0.5-0.75 times the perceived diameter of the disc of the Sun. We will post the photo when we begin posting illustrations with the written reports. PD))
