Saucer shaped object near Trapper Peak. Emailing photo.

October 8th, 2016 around 5pm MDT, I went to Hannon Memorial Fishing Access South of Darby, MT. Trapper Peak looked nice so I took several pictures of it. A few minutes later, in the shade, I was going through the pics to see what might be best and deleting poor ones.

I noticed what I thought was a bird in one of the pictures and zoomed in to see what it was. To me it looked like a flying hard hat (only much larger) several miles away. I posted it to FaceBook and said I would zoom in and crop the picture later that evening.

I did not see the object when taking the pictures, it wasn’t until a bit later that I noticed it in the photo.

When I got home, I looked at the pictures on my Galaxy S4 phone. On that particular picture, I hit edit, then crop. I zoomed in on the original to the spot in question then slid the crop outline over there and saved the “cropped” image. I posted it to Facebook.

Next, I took the “cropped” picture (which now had a .png extension) and did the same thing, zoom, crop and save. I did it a third time and Posted both of these to FaceBook. To me it looks like some kind of flying saucer.

I have the original picture on my camera (.jpg extension). Clicking on the “details” button, it shows the date, time and sequence number of the picture.

I will email the original picture to the address given along with my FaceBook address. If someone wants to verify the picture, I’d be happy to show them.

((NUFORC Note: Photo shows an amorphous, blurry, dark object above a distant ridge. We cannot confirm that the object is a genuine UFO. Moreover, we suspect that the object, because of its asymmetry, may be a bird in flight. PD))
