I was hiking in Miniwaska state park in New Paltz, NY, on Saturday 9/14/13. Towards the end of the hike (approx 3-4 pm) my friends and I climbed to the top of the Skytop Tower at Mohonk Mt Preserve. We were just enjoying the view and the weather.

I was taking photos with my phone, mostly of my friends, but one or two looking at the Shawangunk Ridge in the park to the west of the tower. I didn’t see anything myself at the time, but later on when I was looking through my photos noticed a strange object in the sky in one photo.

I thought it must have been an insect that passed in front of the camera, or a helicopter that I just hadn’t remembered seeing. Attached is the photo.
