Object adjacent to funnel cloud in Fort Frances, Ontario on July 1st 2002

On July 1st at 12:38 hours I was photographing a funnel cloud that had just passed by Fort Frances. The sky very dark. I took two digital photos in less than a minute period. In the second photo an object was visible over the neighbours house. I was facing in a Northerly direction when taking the photo. It was about two weeks later when I downloaded the data to my computer. In the photo there is a definite shape of something that was not visible through the lcd display. When I increase the magnification of the object it appears to be disc-like in configuration.

((NUFORC Note: Witness was kind enough to forward a digital copy of the photo. The object in question, in the photo NUFORC received, is small, and ambiguous. We have not analyzed it, but it could be a bird, we believe. The photo is not distinct enough for us to establish what the object is. PD))
