Location: LaPorte, IN
Shape: Cigar
Duration:1 second
While outside having a cigarette I was randomly taking photos of the sky as this is the way I usually capture pictures of what I call ufo's. This is a cigar shaped craft looking directly to the south and almost straight up. Object was not seen with the naked eye and emitted no sound. 100_2465.jpg

((NUFORC Note: This is the first of seven reports we have received from this source. He has been very generous in sharing 23 e-messages, with 32 attached photographs of objects he has captured with a camera. Most of the objects he did not witness, at the time the photos were taken, but rather later, as he inspected the photos. NUFORC has looked at all of the photos, and although we cannot identify all of the anomalous objects captured photographically, but most of the objects we believe are birds. In most of those cases, we are even able to determine the type of bird involved, and its position in flight. We believe that none of the photos is of a genuine UFO. We, nevertheless, express our gratitude to the source for his having shared the information with our Center, who has had to use a computer at a public library, in order to submit the information to NUFORC!
