Hat-shaped tan object caught on cell phone camera by accident.

I was coming out of my doctor's office, and I knew it was going to storm when I went in at 2pm. It was 87 degrees and uncomfortably humid. I had been watching the sky for lightning on my way to the doc.

As I was coming out of the parking lot, a huge raindrop hit my windshield. It was so big I tried to get a picture of it with my phone. I glanced up in the sky to see if there was a big storm coming. I saw an odd circular area in the fluffy clouds in a clearing. I saw only a circular swish of a white cloud and nothing else but blue sky behind it. I always call those "sucker holes" for pilots, but this one had a swirly cloud inside it.

It wasn't until I was in bed that night looking at my photos to see if I captured tge big raindrop on my windshield. My daughter was in Hawaii and I was going to show her she was missing giant rain here at home in the Portland area, and a stormy muggy day.

When I looked at my photo, the raindrop is there, but much to my surprise, so is somethibg odd in with the swirly swish cloud! It looks to me like the shape of the Trent UFO in McMinnville, and this is not far from that area mileage-wise.

I thought maybe it was a dirty spot on my window, but my window is clean and I can clearly see this object is blurry like it is moving fast. There is even some light reflecting on the left side of it in the photo like it is reflecting off an object. I have no clue what appeared in my photo, but here it is!
