Location: Silverton, OR
Shape: Sphere
Green sphere appears on photos.

Due to the smoke and pollution in the sky, the lighting was strange this afternoon. I stepped out on my deck, facing the west, to take a few photos of the sun rays coming through the clouds.

Approximately an hour later, I looked at the photos that I had taken and saw a green sphere which moved up and to the north in the time between the first and second photos. The photos were taken one immediately after the other at 5:31 pm. I saw nothing in the sky at the time that I took the photos.

Would like some insight about whether or not this type of object has been reported. My son made a report to you about a sighting in Hawaii a few years ago. We enjoyed interacting with you at that time and hope to be able to speak with you again. Thank you.

((NUFORC Note: Object is a lens flare, caused by photographing the Sun. PD))
