UFO Found in Moon Pictures

On 4/4/2011, I was shooting some sunset pictures on Nuckols Farm during a walk with my wife and son.

Couple minutes after the sunset, I found the half moon was bright then started shooting the moon and some street lights at Nuckols Farm Elementary School, 12351 Graham Meadows Drive, Richmond, VA 23233-6619.

At one moment while I was adjusting my camera, I felt there was a "star" below the moon. However, when the shutter had already closed, I could not see that object any more. Then I magnified my picture. Very surprisingly, it was an UFO! Right after that, I tried to search it out with a zoom lens and ended up with nothing. Several minutes later, I showed this picture to some guys playing on the ground. They were my neighbors in the same community.

I also searched three other pictures taken couple seconds before that picture. There was seemingly something on them but very dark.

In the attachment, I put in the full size picture with all EXIF data for your analysis. My camera’s time was not right. The actual time of that picture (compared to my cell phone after that), should be 20:00:35, 4/14/2011.

Thank you for your attention on this report. Pictures were sent through e-mail.
