Lake Elsinore sighting 8/2/10 0600

I was driving up the Ortega Hwy going home from working the night shift. I usually got off at 6:30, but this day I got off at 5:30 which allowed me to see the sunrise.

Well as I got over the peak of the mountain I decided to pull over and take several pictures of the sunrise. It wasn't until the next day that I noticed in 2 of the pictures that there was an object in roughly the same area of the sky, but these pictures were not sequential. Lets say I took 10 pictures, the object was in pictures 5 and 9.

I noticed the object in the 2nd picture (picture 9), and it got me curious to see if it was in any others.

Of the 5 pictures 4 were of the same area of the sky, and there was no trace of the object in the middle pictures.

((NUFORC Note: Source of the report forwarded two photos of a sunrise sky. There is a very small, blurry, light-colored object, approximately 1/4 or 1/3 (est.) the diameter of the rising sun. It could be a clump of cloud, an aircraft, we believe. If it is a genuine UFO, we cannot confirm that fact, based on the information provided by the witness. PD))
