Lunar eclipse UFO over Los Angeles

On the night of the Lunar eclipse I decided to take some pictures. I had almost forgotten about it so when I started taking pictures the earths shadow had already covered most of the moon. This was around 7:35 my first few shots were handheld but I decided that the tripod would be a good idea. I took many pictures tracking the moon as it moved to the right across the sky. I stopped taking pictures around 20:10 because clouds were starting to move in. I never saw anything out of the ordinary while I was taking the pictures.

After I downloaded the images I noticed a rainbow colored object in the lower left hand corner. Out of the 34 pictures I took it’s in almost every one. Even the shot where I made the mistake of using a flash.

I’m sure it’s not a light refraction. There is clearly a saucer shaped object with a full spectrum of colored lights wrapped around it. You can clearly see that the colored light wraps around the object. You can see how the light glows out into space kind of like a flashlight beam. My only guess as to why I didn’t see it is that the light must pulse at a rate that makes the object invisible to the naked eye. Kind of like when you take a picture of an older TV & see line in the picture that you can’t see when you’re actually watching the TV.

((NUFORC Note: The witness describes himself as an experienced photographer. However, we suspect that the stipes of prismatic-like displays of color in his photos are due to some optical effect, and not to the presence of UFO's. PD))
