Unknown object seen in Raleigh, NC 8/2/2013.

At 2100 EDT my friend and I were taking pictures of the lighted pyramid on top of one of the buildings. We weer shooting pretty much due east.

My camera was a Leica M9 with a 50mm f 1.4 shooting at ISO 160, f1.4 and speed around .,5 - .7 seconds. t was hand held.

We observed a very large sphere behind the building, note the building edges cutoff the sphere.

I took 4 pictures each had the object. When I downloaded I found two more pictures that had it and they showed a movement from left to right or north to south.

The pictures have been sent to and examined locally and no has any idea what it is.

The camera had just been returned from Leica who had cleaned and aligned it.

There was no filter.

I'll be sending the pictures to the email address below.

The raw DNGs are available.

There was a concert being held due south of us several blocks away at the Redhat amphitheater.
