|Blue sphere near the moon on the night of the eclipse
On the evening of the eclipse in Aug 2007, I had decided to chronicle the event via my digital camera. The plan was to take a couple of pictures every 15 minutes or so. I went to my backyard prior to the start of the eclipse to take the first pictures. A beautiful full moon on a clear night. After the first shot I noticed a blue spehere directly below the moon in the camera screen. (Looking at a clock, it would have been at the six). Thinking that is was from the camera, I changed the setting and took another picture. It seemed ok. Last night I developed the pictures.
The first picture had the sphere at six, to the left of the moon (at the 9 postion) is what appears to be a chain of gold/metallic spheres linked together and curved. There are what appear to be additional gold/metallic spheres on the roof the house behind mine. To the right at roof line is a very large bright light in what appears to be a street light.
In the second picture the blue sphere is at the 5 position. The chain of spheres is below and behind the blue sphere, again at the 5 position. It now looks straight. The spheres on the roof have moved to the right. The street light has moved from the right of a tree or roof toward the left so that it is now in the middle of that. It looks more like street light in this second picture.
After I took the second picture I went into the house and fell asleep. I have seen some strange things in the past in the sky in Petaluma and San Rafael, but this is first time I have photos.
