Location: Pensacola, FL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:10 minutes
Bright sphere with contrasting shadows traveling slowly from north to south from 8-11o'clock positions diagonally

This photo was taken at approximately 19:30 local time while sitting outside with my family here in Pensacola Fl. I often scan the skies for anything interesting, and I noticed what appeared to be a distant and slow moving object at about the 10 o'clock position traveling from north to south. I went inside to get my Kodak P712 digital camera, which has a 10x optical zoom lens, hoping to get a better look. Upon, returning I did not see the object, and thought it might have passed behind a cloud. I sat back down to enjoy the sunset, and after a few minutes a bright pinpoint of light caught my eye off to my left as it continued moving slowly south through a clear patch of sky at about the 11 o'clock position. I could see the bright spot very clearly, and was able to point it out to my 5 year old son. My wife, who was also present, did not see it; she had been facing the opposite direction. I momentarily lost sight of it while readying my camera, but decided to snap some photos of the area anyway. I was very pleased when one of them captured the object. My only regret was that the camera was set to 3.1-mega pixels instead of its maximum of 7.2-mega pixels. The object was definitely three dimensional, and traveling at a slight upwards angle as it moved from north to south.

A friend of mine once said that he did not believe in UFO’s, and if they were real, how come he had never seen one? My only question to him was “How often do you look up”?
