Taupo, New Zealand Sphere Photo

I noticed that you had an unspecified report on 3/10/03 from New Zealand. I too was in New Zealand at this time and had taken a photo while on a hike outside of Taupo on the North Island (photo sent seperately). I didn’t notice anything in the sky when I took the picture, just after I had downloaded to my PC. It looks a little like a helicopter, but I didn’t remember seeing any aircraft that day. When you zoom in on it, it looks more like a metallic sphere. It looks too far away to be an insect, but you’re the experts. I guess it could be a fly.

((NUFORC Note: Object of interest in the photo is very small, and very indistinct. We do not know what the object is. PD))
