UFO over Wrigley Field.

My wife and I were attending the San Francisco Giants vs. Chicago Cubs NLDS baseball game on Saturday, October 8th at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL. We were seated in the center field bleachers. We arrived early to the game, and having my Canon DSLR camera with me, I decided to walk around the bleachers and take some photos of the crowds both inside and outside the stadium. As I walked behind the bleachers in left-center field, I took a photo of the people gathering on the rooftop of a building on the north side of Waveland Avenue.

Four days after the game, I uploaded the photos to my computer and was intrigued by what I saw in the photo of the rooftop crowd. A fuzzy glowing object was in the sky in the distance to the north. It’s a bit difficult to discern a definable shape (perhaps several interconnected spheres?), but hopefully some type of photo-enhancement software might bring it out better. I noticed nothing in the sky when I took the photo. The night was clear, there was no blimp present, nor did I see any nearby small planes or helicopters. There was a slight breeze from the northwest, and I did see jet airliners to the north following their usual flight path from east to west to land at O’Hare International Airport. They were large and clear in the sky, and this does not appear to be one of those.

I am sending a full resolution jpeg to your email.
