Unexplained lights seen near hot air balloons early in the morning.

My daughter was driving down Cemetery Road at about 7:20 this morning. She took a right onto Island Pond Road in Derry, NH, after passing the fields on either side of the road, she noticed two hot air balloons floating along up above her to the right of her car. She quickly shot two pictures through her windshield. The first showed one balloon, a large yellow balloon with a smile face on one side of the balloon above the tree line from the angle she shot the picture at.

The second picture she took a moment later shows two hot air balloons, the large yellow smile face one and a multi-colored balloon with white designs, what seems to be a cloud still higher up above the multi-colored balloon and two shiny circles above and to the right of the smile hot air balloon.

There is also what seems to be a double vapor trail and two white shapes which could be clouds to the far right in the upper corner of the picture; it's a bit hard to tell.

When she sent the picture to me from her smart phone, I was able to use the touch screen to enlarge the picture and it looks like the two large white circles are lights with a rectangular gray colored shape behind the bright lighted circles. There is nothing else near it and we are both baffled as to what this could be.

((NUFORC Note: Possible reflection from glass in front of camera?? We suspect that the object is not an alien space craft, but we cannot be sure. PD))



One more quick note. Daughter took a series of pics in the same spot this morning. You are correct. She got the double reflection. It didn't look exactly the same but it was close enough.

Best regards.
