A spherical object with an annulus surrounding appeared in a photo that was taken of rock formations in Utah.

I am a Service Engineer for the Boeing company, and I just returned home from a month long vacation through the Southwest of the USA. As I was reviewing photos of our travels, I noted two photos that I felt should be reported.

While driving away from Arches National Park near Moab, Utah, on 08-Aug-2007, at approximately 5:05 PM, I was taking photos of some red-rock formations ahead. The day was clear with no clouds, and I thought the views were quite striking against the clear blue sky.

However, after inspection of the photos, I noted an object that I did not remember seeing as I took the photos, but it was quite clear after inspection of the photos.

The object was captured with a digital camera, and I was able to zoom in on the object. In both cases, the object consisted of a half sphere surrounded by an annulus. The geometry is quite distinct; I was rather shocked to have captured two separate photos, each with apparently the same type of object.
