Duration:
Two photos captured a "starship enterprise" looking shape, possibly indicating a camouflaging of some sort.

The UFO was captured on two photos. The first photo clearly shows the UFO with a blue sky background. It has a shape which closely resembles the starship enterprise from star trek. The second photo was taken approx 1 minute later, showing the UFO at a slightly different angle, showing a definite metallic reflection. A very interesting point to be made here is that given that both photos are approx 1 minute apart, it is not reasonable to say the UFO was travelling at high speed to avoid detection by the human eye. Also, given that I did NOT see this aircraft that day, I have come to the conclusion that it had a "camouflage" of some sort - which was somehow not effective on the flash of a camera, even though it was a disposable camera! Given the photo timing, I'd say it travelled at a fairly low speed, and low altitude as can be seen by the photos. It was pure coincidence that I had taken two photos, as my itent was to capture the greenery of conneticut having stayed there for a month on work purposes. Of course it may be possible that there were two of these UFO's. I will send the photos by email, and have the negatives if there are any interested parties. This is not a hoax! my email is w_v@optusnet.com.au should anyone wish to enquire.

((FOLLOW-UP CORRESPONDENCE FROM WITNESS))

Hi,

I've already submitted an online report, and stated that I would send the pics via email. These pics are genuine, and I have the negatives with me. The timing difference between the two pictures is about a minute, and were taken in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. I am from Australia and was in the U.S. on a two week work assignment.
At the time I can say without a doubt I did not see the UFO when taking the pictures, and I would think something of that strange shape would have caught my attention. Also note that I only had a disposable camera with me, and was simply taking snaps of the "nice road" and wasting some of the camera snaps. I was not looking through the lens at the time, I was driving and simply held the camera in front of me to take the random shots, (as strange as it may sound!). So, I am sending the two scanned pics, and two other pics which are only of the UFO from the first two pics with a higher
scanning resolution.
Looking forward to hearing any thoughts on this…

((NUFORC Note: We have looked at the four photographs provided by the witness. The photos indicate a black, or dark, object, positioned above a line of trees in the distance. We do not know what the object is, but its lack of symmetry suggests to us that it may not be a genuine UFO. One possibility we consider possible is a black plastic bag, but that is pure surmise, on our part. We do not know what the object is. PD))
