Object caught on camera over the Great Wall of China

I live here in Beijing China with my family as an expat.

Recently my brother and his wife visited us and we took them for a day trip to the Great Wall of China. It was a clear sunny day, and we found a great place for a photo opportunity. We asked a passer by to take a snap shot using my 5.2 Meg Pixel Sony digital camera and my brother also asked the person to take a snap shot with his camera. Firstly a picture was taken using my camera and approx. 10 seconds later the same snap shot using my brothers camera.

It was a lovely day and nothing unusual was seen by any of us during the walk of the wall.

When we got home, we were keen to look at all the pictures we had taken. It was then, that I spotted an object over the mountains taken on my camera by the passer by. The object is clearly visible and in the distance over the mountains.

I have showed a number of people, and they are mystified what it could be. I had no intentions of reporting it, until a work colleague told me their had been a number of witnesses who had spotted an object which was reported in the local press.

I have attached the picture for reference. The object is in the far top right hand side of the photo. You can zoom in, and it is clearly disc shaped (although a little blurred). It almost looks like their is a white light from the base of the object.

((NUFORC Note: We have viewed the photo provided by the witness. Our suspicion is that the object may be a bird, but that is pure conjecture, on our part.
