Ball-form, white, partially transparent object, diam. ca 10 m, two legs ahead

May 27 2001, approximately at noon, I took part in the routine flight organized for tourist over the area of Nasca.

After coming home to Prague, I browsed the pictures I did there. On one of the pictures, I sight an ball-form object the origin of which I cannot understand. On one side it is rather transparent, on the other side it makes deep shadow. Moreover, the elliptic shape of shadow seems be not in full correspondence with the shape of the object.

I took the photo of the object unwittingly; I didn't mention it that time. Thus, I didn't observe it directly by my eyes. Therefore, only from the context of the surrounding environment (bushes, hills on the background) I value the dimension of the object as 10 & 20 meters.

Of course, I scaned accessible to me video records of other participants of the flight. On one of them, I found the object. It was taken roughly 50 seconds later (the aircraft flight a circle). The object has divided into two pieces and was rising up.
