Strange unidentified light detected on digital camera.

My wife and I were camping out on our farmland in Eastern Kentucky approximately 10 miles from Salyersville,Ky on the night of May 29 around 11 or 12 PM. I was playing around with a new digital camera I bought a few months ago. After taking some pictures of our campfire I decided to try and take a picture a star that stood out almost directly above our campsite. I stepped away from the fire where it was fairly dark and took two pictures about 30 seconds apart. I did not see any other light or star near the one that I was taking the picture of. We went to bed at close to 1:30am. I first noticed the light object when I downloaded the picture to my computer on Tuesday the 1st of June. The 1st picture shows a faint light located below the star, the second picture shows the light located a lot closer to the star than the previous picture. It had to be moving fast to change position as much as it did in that time span. I have been busy and just now got the chance to write this info. I have no idea what the object is or where it came from. I will try to send the image with this info. If I can't I have it available on the computer and it is still on my memory card in the camera. Anyone interested in seeing it please let me know. ((name deleted))

((NUFORC Note: Two photos accompany report. The second light may be another celestial body, but that is a guess. We have no reason to necessarily believe the the object is a genuine UFO. PD))
